    Unfriend him if he upsets you. Then he won't copy you anymore. But its nice to know someone like your work :)

    Peace

    Nothing you can do. Might as well be flattered ;). Don't really see why someone would copy a design to the bone, defeats the purpose of the game.

    I wonder if the other 20% is his own or another copy :lol:.

    if it bothers you I think you should talk to him first but if that doesn't work you might just have to unfriend him

    If it annoys you so much then delete his or her *. Personally it wouldn't bother me as I can't do anything about it. If they started posting my designs on here and claiming them as their own then I'd probably open a thread accusing them of outright plagiarism :mrgreen:

    If it really bothers you get rid, i like to see other peoples designs and sometimes impliment them in my springfield but decorate differently, and i would find it perfectly acceptable if someone wanted to copy mine.

    But the objective if the game is build a springfield how yourself would see it :)

    Hope the comments helps pal

    Sup?

    So I have this guy that keeps copying my building designs to almost be 1:1. Now while it's flatering and all that, 80% of his springfield looks like mine. And I'm not sure I'm cool with it. I'll post some pics tomorrow 'cuase it's almost midnight and I need to sleep.

    Would like to hear your opinion on this. Unfriend this guy/ let him be?
    Please don't unfriend me. I just love your town and couldn't helped myself. :oops: (just teasing)

    I would unfriend, but a quick PM asking for an explanation wouldn't be out of line

    I'd probably unfriend him if it bothered me. I guess it would be kinda strange. When I visit friends, I usually know who's town I'm in because one thing or another stands out. You sure it's not that home neighbor? Copies everything. :lol::mrgreen:

    Seriously, delete. But after you take and post pics! :D

    By the way, welcome to our forum. 8)

    I recently added a new friend. Noticed two large areas of his/her town were carbon copies of mine. Also noticed other areas that were taken from other friends of mine. Strange considering I had just added this person.

    It was clearly a town constructed by someone cherry picking parts of others towns from the panoramic thread.

    The reason I even added this person is because this person had been
    praised on these forums for their town.

    (Whenever I get a friend request without being messaged first I search their name using the search function here. If they are active forum members I typically add them. This person wasn't very active but had received much praise so I accepted because I was curious.)

    How I dealt with this was to be mildly annoyed and carry on with my day. I didn't even delete them. I'm lazy.

    The best thing to do--Is redecorate your town to the the lamest, most cluttered, farming town you can do--That'll teach 'em.
