For those of you that haven't been following the situation, there is currently an issue with people pirating Fallout 4 mods that they didn't create, and uploading them for console users. While this may not seem like a big deal, aside from ripping off someone else's hard work, there are issues at play with many of these mods because they were made with the PC in mind and they do not run properly on consoles. Here's how one mod author explains the situation:
Apparently, there is a storm brewing, more damaging than the Paid Modding "fiasco" of Skyrim. I feel it necessary to preface, that while I cannot speak for the "Majority" of mod authors, I can speak for quite a few when I state, that despite personal opinions of the "PC Master Race", vs "Console Peasants", this isn’t a contributing factor to many mod authors, which is a minor topic we will explore in this document. I also, do not claim to be a lawyer, and as such, will not be discussing the legalities of the situation, simply the consequences. On a side-note, please, for the love of all that is monotonous and usual, don’t harass the developers over site moderation, it will be handled in time.
