Thanks all. And let me clarify. The map is an arena, it was designed as one, its just a HUGE one. And it was not designed really, with very low end systems in mind. (although I will definately change it a bit to better suit the game, ie remove some of the more graphically intense bits like ships, change girder brushwork to a shader with transparency) I mean, theres no way this is going to work on a 300mhz pc with 64 mb of ram. But I might make it a bit smaller for the port.
One of my issues was, in the original readme, I said this..
Use Of Textures: The author, whitewolf, grants you permission to use the
textures contained in the folders "rudolf_01", "rudolf_02"
and "rudolf_03" for any non-commercial project. These
textures have been made by me, and I reserve the right to
ask you to remove them from your project if I deem it to
be offensive. (use your common sense here.)......
Well I've changed my mind now, decided to just go plain GPL. But what happens when people see this old readme, and use the textures in their maps, but they
dont comply with the *new* now GPL readme? ie if they use the textures for their map but dont list the textures as GPL? I mean I dont really mind, but they would then be violating GPL.
And I also said this
THE AUTHOR OF THIS MODIFICATION, R.WENTZEL, RESERVES ALL RIGHTS TO THE ARCHITEXTURE/BRUSHWORK CONTAINED IN THIS MODIFICATION AND/OR CONTAINED IN THE FILE spacefighter_factory.bsp.
Now this is not really in the best interests of the community, and thats why I want to re-license. But because of this, do I then have to ask jk3files to take it down?
The music will have to go, I realise that.
Apparently, there is no art direction for this game (at least anyone asking for some clarity as to what the art direction is, is met with silence) so the map being different doesn't mean anything.
Well if you want to include it in a future release, then I'd be honoured, just watch out for the people who say..."you said the game works on a pentium 2 with 64mb ram, and then you went and included that huge...behemoth thing, and it doesnt work on my system!"
You've got a damn good thing going here so keep it up.
