Don't need to credit me. Just don't steal the work.
Uh... if you think it's fine that somebody else stole these from other games... then... why wouldn't it be fine for someone else to steal it from you? Either it's all right to steal, in which case you'd be fair game, too.. or else it isn't all right, in which case nobody should have stolen them to begin with.
Either way, this is why it takes a person hours (if not days) to find decent, LEGAL resources. (Everyone seems to think it is all right to steal... to the extent that those who don't want to be thieves cannot find legal material for the life of them.) But if it's stolen, then I'm pretty sure that in all fairness, the credits (and the right to sue us) belongs to the original artists, not to the people who ripped off their hard work.
FBU never claimed anything that wasn't his. He stated quite clearly in his credits where certain resources came from. Sure, he's credited some people for rips from other games, and rips may be a moral issue with some people, however had he not included those credits and claimed everything as his own, then your post would have had merit.
What he's asking is that you don't take them yourself and claim that you created them. That's what he means about not stealing.
As for finding legal resources, chances are you won't find any that's free. In most cases, you'll have to stay with the RTP (assuming you own a legit copy of RM), make your own, or hire somebody (and pay them) to make resources for you. You could check out RMWeb for legal resources, but unless you are willing to pay money to the original artists, most of those resources can only be used in non-commercial games.
