License of a Mod for ET: Legacy

Added by sagurado almost 6 years ago

Hey guys,

i have a short question:

I created a mod for ET: Legacy. I used the cgame, qgame and ui files of ET: Legacy - sourcecode.
Which license do I have to take?

Greetz,

I guess that GPLv3.

Yes, GPLv3 and your mod must be open sourced to people using your mod.

No. You must give access to the source code to people using your mod. That is the very constraint of the GPL.
If this is an issue, then you have to avoid using Legacy mod as a base for your own mod (and I’d say ETPub might be the best alternative here).

Thx for the informations.

I would prefer closed source... But doen’t matter. ^^

Revived wolves become then open source... Oh, it was all the time open source

Do you have any description of your mod? What are the differences with ET:L, and what are you focusing on with Revived Wolves?

Hmmm, not realy ^^ I want to make new 3D-models for weapons and co. Other textures for maps, new "modern" hud and maybe a completly other gameplay... maybe...

I was just starting with coding again, to have fun. And this time without "stealing" from other mods, like my old mod "chaos".

You don’t have to make your models and textures open-source though, just the source code.
