The game is not open source; it's an open moddable platform. You understood perfectly kleanphil's point. If all modders were afraid to release their tools / tracks / cars etc because “copyright” infringements or bad conversions, RF1 would be dead within 2 months. It just survived because the community’s view, in general, is to share. Again, the concern about bad track conversions is simply ridiculous. They will be made, with tools or not. This is an accomplished fact. Bob’s Track Builder, for instance: it’s a very nice tool, but it also allowed hundred awful new tracks with poor textures, grotesque AIW behavior, poor 3d models etc. Rfactor 1 didn’t die because Bob’s Track Builder although tons of rubbish tracks had been made with it.
