skeleton is free =)

Post by rabidweezle » Mon May 17, 2010 10:49 pm

Had a chat with David in irc and the game's skeleton is free (as in freedom) now so it can be edited and distributed for the free pack we are working on.

<rabidweezle> our plan was to remake it all (new models, graphics, story, entirely new data folder) for free dist to linux/windows/mac etc that of course wouldn't be as good as yours, but they could drop in their paid data files instead
<rabidweezle> like open arena
<rabidweezle> this keeps the gpl os's happy so they can put lugaru in their repos, and selling more of your game
<rabidweezle> so they can play the real thing
<david> oh nice
<david> well it's fine with me if you guys use the skeleton
<rabidweezle> good deal man :)
<david> the demo version includes all the data files anyway
<david> hehe
<rabidweezle> nice
<david> so if anyone wants to use them they can just do that
<rabidweezle> that helps alot
<david> I don't want to make it inconvenient for people to work with the free stuff, I'm just keeping some rights in case someone does something silly

That's great to hear, but I really would like to know how free the skeleton is intended to be. A license info update in the repository would do a lot of good..
