I realize this may vary depending on the production value of the game and if the game is free or not. I’m starting a project as a level designer and am tempted to buy models but I thought that would make the game look cheap. This isn’t a matter of model quality though. I’m aware that there are good and bad models out there. What I am worried about is that the models would stand out and people would recognize them as other people’s work. I looked around but could not find much debate over the subject.
