Hello all, long time no see Wink

I just was looking around in the internet to look for some 3d models of old appartment buildings for my unity game/project.

Then I came across these:
https://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/ready-apartment-building-block-model-1197323

The left lower facade looks EXACTLY like one that can be found (a lot) in the game Mafia 2.

If you take a look to the products that he sells, you can find several more buildings/textures from the game.
(Here are all the models that he is selling: https://www.turbosquid.com/Search/3D-Models?include_artist=MuildBuild )

Now I wonder, either he illegally took these from the game and is trying to earn money with them, or he created them and 2K Czech just bought those assets. (most of those assets were published in 2017, years after Mafia 2 was released)

I just thought I could share that with you guys. Maybe some of you know who to contact regarding copy-right infringement.


Best regards

Third possibility: The developer sold or licensed them.

hmm... that could be possible too, since developers usually don't reuse their assets, even if they are very nice. Mafia 1 has some amazing sound-assets (gun sounds, vehicle sounds, city noise,...) and it's a shame they are not/can not be reused.
