Exclamation Rules for XNALara

The moderators have been discussing the rules regarding XNALara images and models, especially in terms of nude and near-nude mods and other sexually suggestive or explicit stuff. These are the rules we have agreed upon.
  • The general rule is that all female characters in any modded images and models (using XNALara or anything else) must not show any more skin than Lara does in her Legend bikini. Male characters can be topless, but not bottomless.
  • Models that do not comply with the XNALara rules on TRF (whether from the TR franchise or not) cannot be offered for download. That includes linking to sites which have such models for download.
  • Sexually suggestive or vulgar poses and gestures are also not allowed, whether or not the character doing them is fully clothed.
There are bound to be situations which don't fall under these categories, but these are the general rules that everyone should follow. If in doubt, ask a moderator or post in this thread. Edit: The above rules also apply to models extracted from other games, whether or not they are modded in any way.

These rules apply from now onwards, so please don't complain about warnings or bans you may have had regarding this in the past.

These rules may be modified in the future if necessary. If so, that will be announced in this thread.

Edit: The following image shows which parts of the skin must be covered in any female model/image posted in this section.

It's okay if the strap areas are handled differently (which is why I removed them to show you have freedom to put whatever you want there) but the remaining areas shown in white fabric have to be covered by opaque material in every female outfit (male characters can still be topless though).

I hope this makes things a bit more clear

It's more of a "Rules for XNALara regarding nude Lara" or sth.

*annoyed cap on*

No they're not. I know you're telling us the rules here, but I have been threatened with a "vacation" on more than one occasion for posting a picture with a "nude" Lara where she is infact covered, to no more or less of an official render. I don't mean to be buggy, but it's a bit of a kick in the face to be told naked images of Lara are allowed, aslong as she is covered. Perhaps I'm blind, but in my pictures- she's covered.

I'm supplying two images, that have previously been removed for bypassing the T&C. Do these images cover the "images/renders in which Lara is naked are allowed, as long as she is covered in some way (for example, with her hands or hidden behind furniture) in such a way that does not expose any more skin than a bikini would" ?

Please remove them if they're unacceptable (as previously stated).

Also, if this is more appropiate for a PM conversation, feel free to delete this post and quote me over PM. Thanks!

Dizzydoil, was this sentence not clear enough?

As a matter of fact, your second image is what prompted us moderators to get these rules straightened out once and for all, as we were all working under different assumptions about what was acceptable and what wasn't. So these rules are what will be enforced by all of us in the future. They don't work retroactively.

Okay, then. Would these images be suitable to post now?

(I'm glad I helped toward a serious decision )

Thanks. Itīs good to have these rules clear and written down for everyone to see. Iīm also happy that we will have some more artistic freedom. I just hope people will keep their work tasteful and decent...

Anyway, there is something else that I think should be said about a particular model and now is the right time and place to say it, I think. It concerns Vega82īs bathingsuit model. (Originally a Doppelganger mod, retextured by tombraider4ever later into a collection of Lara swimsuits. You all know which model Iīm talking about.

He wrote this in the readme:

Quote:
Because of the nature of the meshes/textures, I'm forced to give this mod a LIMITED use.
DO NOT use it as a base to make a nude mod and DO NOT include any of my textures/UVcuts in a nude mod.
Any non nude stuff, you're ok to go.

Q:
Why are you suddenly coming with this "limited use" bull**** vega? you suck!!

A:
Perhaps someday I'll release my already existent nude mods (unlikely but... never say never) but I'll really hate to see my work used in any possible gross or untasteful way. That's not what I had in mind when I made them and I don't want to be linked to that sort of stuff, in any way, shape or color. I hope you can please understand me, and could respect this.
Please, donīt be an ass and respect his wishes people.

Thatīs all.

Yes, a nude back is allowed, since Lara's back is nearly fully visible in her bikini (except for a thin strap). But please note the rest of the rules too. This is only applicable to images not downloadable models.
