How is that Maxis's fault that some idiot downloads those user mods and then gets upset with them?
You need to download a mod to get nudity in The Sims, and you need to download a mod to play the sex game in GTA.
The only difference is the extent of the mod.
Neither game, as shipped, will provide you with nudity or explicit sex scenes.
You can't play the mini-game outside of the GTA game engine. The GTA game engine won't play the sex mini game unless you modify it. So that data on the disc is meaningless to the end user and the shipped game engine. I guess these people would be just as offended had I sent them a print out of the binary code that represents the sex mini game -- like visualising porn in the "Matrix" code.
How many bytes need to be changed, exactly, before the blame changes from the original author to the "hacker"?
Modify one byte and it's obvious that the author wanted you to see that content... modify two bytes and it suddenly becomes reverse engineering.
