Ultima IX: Redemption for Morrowind, Libre Edition
This is an attempt to make a Libre Edition (LE) release of the assets used to create Ultima IX: Redemption. With this LE release, you are free to use the models, meshes and animations to create, remix and build your own simulations, games and worlds.
Methodology and Release Guidelines
We are curating the original UIX:R release and validating that none of the assets in the LE contain Bethesda's Intellectual Property (IP) and Copyrights. We then try to make contact with the original creator of the work. We then ask their permission to add their work to the LE release by having them release or re-license their work to a Creative Common License of their choice.
Available CC licenses
Currently 100% of the assets found in the LE fall under one of the Creative Commons licenses.
As more content creators are contacted, they can pick a CC license that bests suites them.
CC0 is also known as the "Public Domain" license for jurisdictions that don't honour the concept of "Public Domain". You may freely download, build upon, enhance and reuse the works for any purposes without restriction under copyright or database law.
CC-BY is a license which only stipulates that you include the original author's name with the work.
CC-BY-NC is the same as CC-BY except that it can't be used for commercial use.
People you should thank
Alain "Spyder" Brunotte, released over a 1300 assets under the CC0 license. Spyder wrote:
As for the license: Sure, go for CC0 "public domain". It felt strange that my name was not even mentioned once when Corv released the UIX:R files, but I actually do not need my name under these assets. I consider them as pieces of my learning process and many are quite messy ;)
Star Boi and his 800+ assets under the CC-BY license as he wrote:
All persons are free to use these meshes as they see fit, keeping in mind that if used in another released mod, you should give me credit in the readme, but of course that wont be enforced, but it would be nice ^_^ Besides that, do as you will!
Patrik "Vurt" Andersson and his 120+ assets are now under the CC-BY-NC license:
Yes my work can be used as long as the person is not making money of it. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ that one sounds good!

Feel free to use any of these items in other projects! Permission is not needed, but I do appreciate a message letting me know...as I get tickled pink when I see any of my projects in use in other projects! Please, make sure you give the appropriate creators credit as well...and give me credit for anything of mine you used.

You are free to use this in any Morrowind project you wish. Asking ahead is not necessary. Giving credit is not necessary, although you are welcome to if you wish. If you wish to modify this in any way, ie edit the mesh or the texturing, you may do so. Please credit yourself with the final product and not me. Also please change the filenames to avoid conflicts with mods that use the unaltered files.
Razhkul's work falls under the CC-BY license when he wrote this:
The dragons models and all the scripts except the dragon riding script are freely distributable, you can use them in your mod, the only thing I ask is that you inform me about its use and please, not use the dragons excessively.

My Plugins are completely free, so you can use my faces in your mod without my permission, just GIVE ME SOME CREDIT, please....that's All. :)
