Too bad the following didn't happen on GAF, it would've been stuff of legends.

So, in STO or Star Trek Online someone posts a thread to some screenshots about 'exciting unknown ships' which turn out not to be unknown at all. But then someone else notices that the poster has also a secret image folder full of virtual voyeurism. The link is in the thread but I guess GAF TOS wouldn't want me linking it here with all those flashing virtual pubes.

I think quote from the guy who noticed it says it all:

Hey, starbuck, why don't you tell us why you have a folder full of pics of various players you took using a nude mod, probably without their knowledge?

Warning, link is NSFW.

Incidentially I took a screenshot of the directory and also mirrored the entire thing, so don't bother trying to remove or hide it.

Also, that ad for the ingame nude patch is reeeeally classy.

This guy mods the game so that women characters of other players are either naked or half naked and then poses next to them in his colorful uniform, then stores the images in his folder which also has an ad for selling the mod for 1 million of ingame currency.

I don't know whether to facepalm or to rewatch that Extras scene where Patrick Stewart 'has seen everything'. Now I also can't ever relog to STO without imagining people standing near trying to look through my armor.

EDIT: Original thread seems to be deleted on the game forums.

This is one of the funniest things I've read/seen in quite some time. I wonder if it was intentional though? Why would he need those on his website?

Just realizing now that this probably happens in all the popular MMOs. Why even think males would be safe from this? That character inching next to you in Orgrimmar bank could be a guy with male version of this mod installed...

Well, as none of the avatars involved got pregnant I think it's a pretty safe assumption that they did secretly like it.

So he's trying to sell the nude mod using in game currency? Also, his character bio straight up says that he has raped other players but they secretly liked it.

I'm aware that Goldshire is pretty wild on some servers. Dare I ask what the addon does..?

The addon itself is harmless, it allows for roleplayers to add some info about their character like full name, age, and simple stuff like a biography. There are actually some good roleplayers on WoW (I played on a RP server for about a year), but there's also a lot of folks who use them for erotic roleplay advertisements. Some of that stuff gets weird.

Oh, that stuff. I don't think there's anything especially wrong about that either. If 2 consensual adults want to bone in Stormwind, more power to them! I'm sure people have legitimate consensual cybering in STO too. I just think this voyeur case is creepy because the guy clearly 'hunted' victims who didn't know they were participating in in someone's fap collection. It's like getting caught in upskirt photos, and it goes even creepier when you think that the players in question could be really young.

"No. Are yours?"

"No. ...If you don't mind me asking... how far down do they go?"

"All the way."

Well, not quite but there's same elements. Your virtual representation in the game world is used for sexual gratification by someone you didn't know about. Of course it could be said that it's like fapping to a work email you wrote but consider this: in MMO games people put a lot of effort to their characters, dozens, hundreds, even thousands of hours. That creates a sort of emotional attachment to the character and the game, and knowing someone stripped your virtual pants off and 'boned' your character is a bit skeezy.

Also, this guy got caught trying to sell an unauthorized pornographic modification to game files. It's a bit academic what it compares to, Skybuck Flying is going to space pilot graveyard.
