Overview

Porting content from one game to another is generally not allowed, even between games developed and published by the same company. Therefore, porting content from one game to another is not permitted on NexusMods, unless the developer/publisher of that specific game allows porting of content from their games to other games.

There are some general rules when porting content, aside from requiring permission:

  • It is not for profit.
  • Full credit is given.
  • It does not reflect negatively on the rights holder (Publisher and Developer).
