    How did i know ?
    simple i bought one of the packs , and went thru it , the models are broken tris like islands of tris , this is a recognizable patterns of ninja ripper 1.6.
    what is ninja ripper ? well it's a tool used by modding communities.
    i used it a lot to mode my own copy of games , as a hobby ... But i did not go around selling it !! Games like Rust allow you to do this in fact facepunch studios have a tuto on thier forum for modding Rust Skins.(and this is totally fine i'm just explaining the tool)
    Ninja Ripper Rips models from the Memory .so Nothing is safe not even Webgl 3d viewers like sketchfab . even more , this thief did not even bother to merge the vertices since Ninja Ripper Breaks the vertices connection . some of the models are RAW rips


    ok i'm lying and i'm here just to hate on the dude but explain this ?

    (bought it anyways since it was 1$ , Now it's freaking 15$ !! )

    Here's what i'm gonna do, "Team unity "
    I'm gonna use the stolen models in my game and anything bad (lawsuit)that comes my door will come to yours , happy ? (sarcasm ended)
    the asset reported over an over .. Why ? do you clearly leave a stolen asset From a Big company like valve on your platform?
    please explain to my stupid Brain
    changing Texture will not hide the fact that it's stolen
    Remove this thief

    It's Not Hard To make a Tool that check Rips !!
    for crying out loud , i found out about this just from google reverse image engine.
    3d Models are unique in the topography and UVs . Free assets on GitHub , reposted for 10-100 $ on asset store . Same script names , same classes , same everything !!
    Some even will resell an asset Being sold on the unity asset Store , IN THE UNITY ASSET STORE

    Unity really needs to address this. I assume Unity is legally protected and can pass most or all of the liability to their customers, but if the store gets a reputation for being unsafe that's going to hurt their business too.

    This is not good. Hopefully people have not already used these assets in their published games.

    If you've seen assets on the Asset Store that is using copyrighted content, or you see an asset that is copying your original work, you will need to file a takedown notice.
