So, a few friends and I are making our first little game, unfortunately we are not all skilled in the areas we'd like to work in. I have the programming sorta down, we have one guy who is doing a great job with the environments and making the buildings, but no one is really skilled enough to do things like make weapons and characters. So my question is, will we lose credibility as a game development team as a whole if we use models that other people have made and put up for use on the internet. We plan on sourcing all of the models we get somehow in the game, and it will just be for things like weapons and maybe a general character model, i'm pretty sure we could make clothes and such to put on the character.(this is including animations too.) If this is a re-post I apologize!!! TL;DR - Would we lose credibility as a game development team if we use free models we get online?
