Why did the Growtopia Assets disappear?

In legal terms, copyright refers to the legal right of the owner of intellectual property. In simpler terms, copyright is the right to copy. This means that the original creators of products and anyone they give authorization to are the only ones with the exclusive right to reproduce or republish the work.
Ubisoft has the legal rights to every single part of Growtopia.
Ubisoft is the sole owner of Growtopia’s Intellectual Property Rights, including all the game assets and sprites.
In the Growtopian code, Ubisoft specifies a set of guidelines publishers have to follow to be eligible to use Growtopia Assets in their work. Following a recent update to the Growtopian code, a guideline was updated:

You will not charge users for the app or pack you create, nor offer IAPs;
• You are not allowed to generate revenues or other monetary purposes.

We noticed this change very recently, so we reached out to Ubisoft to try and get an exemption, to which we have received a negative response.
Hence, in order to avoid any future legal issues as well as being able to serve you for the long term (self-monetizing website), we have decided it was in our user's best interests to drop the item sprites.
We understand the impact this can have on the user experience, and are working relentlessly to try and find a solution to this crisis.
