I don't know a whole lot about this new thing that's been happening, mod theft, but it needs to stop! The people that mod Mudrunner do it with passion, as a hobby. So why disrespect them and their work by stealing and claiming it as your own? Its just downright stupid in my opinion. With this happening, the true modders are scared to post any more of their hard work. They keep them "friends-only" or strait up take them down. So at the end of the day, if no more great mods are going to be made public because of the thieves, the game will slowly die. Because that's what most of the people that play Mudrunner play it for, to go trailing in Forces', Spun's, Brute's, Jay's and the Dark Circle Modding Team's awesome mods.
Sorry to hear that @SmarOneNine, I'm not having that problem. At least, not yet. How are you launching the game? There are many ways to launch it, Steam on the taskbar, SpintiresMod, desktop. So you might not having the shortcuts to the same .exe and that's messing it up? Just a wild guess.
