Hi there I've recently gotten into making game objects live dragable ond able to go into sims inventory to assist in some nice story archs. There is some old cc that I like to use and would be alot more realistic to the real life equivalent, so I'd like to tune it and post the tuning for others to download as well. I did a test to see if its possible and it is, and it functions similar to a recolour in that it needs the original mess to show up in game. My Issue is that the original creator has not been active since 2016, and I did my best to contact them and ask for permission. My question is that if a modder says its cool to recolour, but not post the mesh, Can I do this tuning and post it with a link and credit to the original mesh or is it wrong to do so?

I think what you're saying would be ok if you're giving credit, linking back to the original post/download etc... If they come back and they ask you to take it down then you can remove it. There are so many creators who aren't around anymore and didn't leave their amazing CC with someone to continue updating it... it's a shame not to use the objects still.
I'd have to double-check on this but it might depend on the site where the content is hosted, as well. I think Mod the Sims has its own rules, and maybe TSR does, as well. If the creator posted their stuff on their own blog then I say yeah, go ahead with your project and be sure to give credit and to provide a link to the original content. If they come back and complain you can take it down, but if you tried to contact them then you can say you made a good-faith effort to be respectful of their work. Don't put anything behind a paywall, however.
