[PSA] Nintendo-related mods are being DMCA'd by Nintendo themselves, unfortunately...
TL;DR Nintendo is actually taking down mods, Garry and Valve confirmed it.

Exactly as the title says. Several Nintendo-related mods are being flagged with DMCA claims and were successful on some notable mods (Such as Apoc Hedgie's Mario ragdolls pack and Super Mario Odyssey pack).

Several other mods were also flagged with DMCA claims. Unfortunately, it was not what we originally assumed and it turns out that Nintendo is behind the DMCA strikes using a site known as MarkMonitor, which is used to tackle copyright infringement.

That doesn't mean that Nintendo won. Some good people in the community managed to archive the mods that were taken down (Most of them anyway). The link to the archives will be added below. Kudos to the people who made them.

I also want to make a disclaimer that I am NOT in any way experienced in modding and will NOT reupload any mods removed from the Workshop out of respect.

One last thing: PLEASE DO NOT HARASS OR GO AFTER ANYONE! And please for the love of god do NOT attempt any act of vigilantism. Two wrongs do not make a right and I do not support nor endorse harassment, witch-hunting, or doxxing. The whole point of this post is to raise awareness.

We'll do what we can to archive mods in Google Drive, Mega, and other sites if possible.

Once you downloaded them, put them into the "addons" folder in the game's files:

Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons

If you wish to find mods updated after the 2020 update, locate this folder:

Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\4000

One last thing; you will need the Extended Spawnmenu addon to access them.

I find it completely absurd that children are willing to jump to such outlandish conclusions out of denial. Instead of their glorious (and definitely not Yakuza-backed) Japanese mega-corporation, with a documented incredibly litigious history, children are still peddling stories pinning it on one man. The supposed "Aaron Peters" figure either does not exist or, if he does, likely works as an actual legal official for MarkMonitor.

The reason for pinning it on this man? Simple, out of denial, children spun a tale that would inspire hope. Obviously, a legal pursuit against Nintendo would be a hopeless endeavor. So, out of denial, children hope that it's one "fraudster", who wouldn't (as a smaller entity than Nintendo) have sufficient legal funds to make legal action as fruitless. Hell, that's how this thread originally started, as an anti "Aaron Peters" thread with very loose evidence, which is likely responsible for the spread of these stories amongst children. Yet the rumors have grown out of hand, and even after this thread and all other reputable sources have abandoned them, they're still being peddled.

In situations like this, it is best to employ the use of Occam's Razor. The fewer moving parts and hoops your theory has to jump through, the more realistic it is. If Facepunch is saying it's Nintendo, and there's no evidence against it being Nintendo (and yes, there almost certainly isn't any evidence clearing Nintendo's name, anyone claiming otherwise is absolutely grasping at straws), then it bloody likely is Nintendo's doing.

Yet, even still, children are radicalized in their hope that this can all be "set straight". They go and harass anyone with the name "Aaron Peters" they can find. They call anyone who opposes their cause "censorship lovers", as though opposing a theory with no evidence automatically means one believes that Nintendo's behavior is justified. I, for one, do not think Nintendo should do what they have done, but they do have the legal right to do it. I grew up with many of the maps being removed, and made abominable creations with many of the models being threatened. I don't like the situation any more than any reasonable person would, but that doesn't mean that I need to be feverishly opposed to the idea that Nintendo did it. Perhaps it just takes some growing up to realize that Nintendo sucks, and hasn't even really produced anything worthwhile since the end of the Wii era.

Doxxing, harassing, and witchhunting people based on their name over some Splatoon OC ragdolls getting taken down is absolutely insane. I wouldn't personally feel safe if my name was Aaron Peters right now, solely because some freak with mental disorders would almost certainly be stalking me with the most malicious intent.

Unfortunately, I don't expect to be able to stop people from spreading their misinformation and lies about this situation, as this will likely register as nothing but a fizzling match-head under the weight of a tidal wave of Nintendo fans who simply don't want to believe that Nintendo could do something like this. But I won't stand for absurd conspiracy theories about the FBI and CIA investigating some guy who made "false copyright claims" when there's no evidence to support any of it outside of the emotional reactions of children. I do hope, however, that at least somebody will see this and think twice about jumping to conclusions that don't really make sense outside of the mind of a child.

Could we fight back, I mean if Garry starts acting smart and get copyright license. We can fight back and have the rights, think about it.

Has anyone archived Smash Bros models yet?

Let’s make a petition for not only, to call for justice and the reissue of the lost ragdolls on steam, to get this troll investigated and arrested, but also to not only Nintendo but also the Japanese government to change the toxic copyright policies and laws which are outdated!

Because if this guy was never been born or was caught earlier and the Japanese government and Nintendo changed their copyright rules way before none of this would have happened!

it is impossible for them to do this, 65 million views on a video including Nintendo's property on GMOD in the first minute of the video

So has everyone accepted that it was in fact Nintendo?
The actual original Mario_Kart is now hidden... I don't know if it was privated or taken down... mario_maps_pack_104618247 look for it

Edit: Mario_Kart_Reanimated is now hidden too...

It's debatable but most of us believe its true. Troll or not though there's not much we can do now since even Garry is convinced its not a troll.
Well just checked the workshop to check the latest addons aaaaaand its the Streisand effect in action. People are uploading lots of Nintendo addons as well as joke addons meant to trash on the company. Found a complete map of OOT Hyrule addon and a burnt corpse with the Nintendo logo on it addon.
I think Aaron Peters would be cunning one that he's always hiding somewhere to avoid getting arrested while the polices are on the patrol around the clock to find him. It's probably the most wanted criminal to feign hacking arrest to make the catch impossible and do whatever he wants.
For the last time, please, leave me alone. No, I can't prove that I'm not Aaron Peters. No, I can't prove that I'm not sending the DMCAs. But where's the proof that I am? If you guys wanna go after me, where's this evidence that I'm him?
Guys it's not Nintendo, the email is fake and the document is missing important info

Trust me, MOST OF US had no intentions on roping you into this. We're cutting our loses. People shouldn't go around pointing fingers, otherwise they'll get people who are innocent roped into this mess. Again, on behalf of this whole board, I am SO SORRY for what has happened to you. We can try our best to call off the people on your board, but not even I'm sure they'll listen. =~="
... Damn, my grammar sucks ass... But you probably get what I mean.

Why don't you get started, then we can send it to Nintendo. Telling them that should've taking a different approach and also tell them that a troll started it.
