AFAIK someone contacted CCP and they allowed using EVE models in fan projects as long, as they are non profits. It is, at least, kind of promotion for original game and they seem to understand this. Are you sure this isn't somekind of very stupid troll?
Nope we got a discord message from a CCP Dev talking on behalf of the CCP Legal team that we stop immediately on anything EVE related.
We were also making a free eve rts game in the unreal engine and we got a message from the same user on discord asking us to stop working on that.
This is the quote from the CCP Dev
To quote CCP Falcon; "...the company needs to protect the EVE IP, and we can't let crossovers into other games occur without licensing."
"...the company is trying to cover its back in terms of copyright infringement, so we need to ask that stuff is taken down and work stops on the mods."
The originator of this mod had 'the nod' from CCP some years ago, however;
"Yeah, unfortunately times change sadly."
