Hello all, I apologize if this question has been asked before but, what, exactly, IS First Seed Material (FSM)? I've been an RPG Maker VX Ace user for awhile but I guess I must've missed the FSM train because by the time I learned of First Seed Material the website and all its stuff were already gone. I know a little bit about it from what I've read on the internet, but I was hoping somebody might be able to clarify it further for me. From what I've heard so far about FSM, it sounds almost mythological, haha. Like an urban legend! I want to give proper credit, also, because I have seen some FSM materials floating around the inter-web but I don't know if they've all been properly credited. Moreover, I have heard some rumor about us not being allowed to use FSM material anymore? Does this mean that, even if I do properly credit them, I can't use FSM resources any longer? Also, I'm very confused about REFMAP and FSM. Is REFMAP and FSM the same thing? Who made FSM, anyway? Is FSM the name of the website where the material was hosted or the person who created said resources? I've also heard that Mack is connected with FSM. Is all of Mack's stuff FSM or just some of it? Is Mack one of the creators who contributed to FSM? From what it sounds like, it seems FSM is a collaborative effort by multiple creators? Why was it taken down? Are we still allowed to use FSM materials? If I see something that was based off of FSM can I still use it so long as I credit FSM, too? Sorry for all the questions, but I would like to get to the bottom of this and maybe shine a light on this mysterious REFMAP/FSM! Thanks so much to anyone who takes the time to answer my questions, even if it's just one of them!
