Do not engage in illegal activity
Engaging in any illegal activity will result in an immediate ban. Donut Team is located in the United States. United States laws must be followed at all times. This includes Copyright law and Computer Misuse law (Malware, Virus etc.). Do not share malware, viruses, torrents, pornography, or otherwise engage in any illegal acts.
Terms of Service
The Terms of Service still apply on the forum.
Create a positive experience for the entire community
Be positive; be polite to others and offer words of encouragement.
When modding, encourage other people’s work. Even if another mod has a similar concept, don’t immediately criticise it or consider it a “rip-off” of another mod. Be open to criticism and ideas. You aren’t expected to immediately use any ideas tossed your way, but be polite about rejecting advice.
Report activity that violates our guidelines
If you think that a user is violating rules, please do not attempt to start an argument with the user in question. Instead, please notify us of possible violation, and we’ll take the appropriate course of action from here.
Do not create spam posts or messages
Spam posts are considered, but not limited to: off-topic to the subject at hand, only contain one word, image/video only, include fake or elongated words.
Do not double post unless you are extending the information you were giving previously. If you are adding additional information, consider editing your previous post. Multiple posts in a row that do not add to the conversation will be removed.
Bumping old threads
Unless you're extending the conversation or asking a new question on a thread from weeks ago, do not continue posting on it.
Do not flame or provoke
Do not create a post, send a message, or otherwise communicate something to flame or provoke another user or a group of people. This includes, but is not limited to: “X vs X” topics, saying something to insult someone, trying to say something is bad without giving a valid reason why, or otherwise upsetting someone to get a reaction.
Do not cause malicious behaviour
Do not behave in a manner that can cause distress, harm or inconvenience to other members. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination, bullying, offensive material, breaching others privacy and accessing others accounts without permission. Accounts will be terminated in cases of malicious behaviour.
Do not advertise
We truly do not care about your YouTube channel, website, or your Twitter. Do not share it with us, do not advertise. You can share these things on your profile. Do not share them in your posts without otherwise asking first unless they pertain to the topic.
No Broken or Low Quality Mods
Please try to refrain from releasing any broken or low quality mods that clearly aren't tested very well. This is defined as having game breaking glitches that the author doesn't acknowledge (and can easily be run into by the average player).
Some example problems that are obvious include:
- Missing CON files.
- Broken missions that crash the game upon starting or reaching a certain stage.
- Car Shops not working (due to a missing Car Shop model of a car).
- Skin Shops not working (due to not requiring the necessary hacks) or being present when they shouldn't be (no for sale skins).
- Dialog not working either causing a crash or a staring contest.
- Phonebooth not working (no Cars2D icons for a car).
If you experience any problems such as these ones, please don't release your mod. Instead you can come to our forum or go to our Discord server and use #shar-mod-help to get help fixing the issues. A released mod having problems is always a possibility, but in some cases it's obvious the author didn't test the mod at all.
