and i know a lot of mappers who simply asked if they were allowed to use them and were allowed to. believe me, if you mention the fact that the textures are from another game in your readme and you didn't have permission to use them, you'll be getting an email from that game's company believe me. they do care about the assets of their games very much. most game company's don't care tho. they'll allow you to use them as long as you credit them in your readme. i dunno what EA's policy on that is, you'd have to just ask them.
