Exactly, I feel like having assets on the store would be better for people who want to know for sure that the art they use is safe.
It would be plain as day and make life easy for alot of people.
Why would i want to run around checking website after website when i could come here where i bought the program and use sprites made by other people who use this program.
With the economy the way it is it should be a nobrainer to add some free stuff,If anything it is good marketing and i dont think anyone would complain.
Scirra store is a platform and should be used as such regardless. The engine allows you to make free games without the need to pay so why not offer free sprites for people that do pay.
Tom i do understand what you mean when you say that there are several different sites for that like OGA OpenGameArt.com but even they can not keep track of all the art that gets posted.
Atleast here you have a profile and if you sold art that was not yours it could be attached to your name making it that much harder to get away with copyright fraud
