Re: F-117A_NIGHTHAWK_2021

Since it's a stealth aircraft, I'd release it with no lights, that way it'll be stealthier when computer generated in offline play and online when the other player forgets to turn the lights off. Also, I believe it carries only two guided bombs. I don't think it was ever intended to carry dumb bombs...

Re: [SCENERY] John Wayne Airport

This is a surprisingly cozy little map. (message from the future). It's a perfect map for recreational planes.

Re: Your favorite sceneries?

There's a scenery with plenty of ground objects on hexagon like islands. Does anyone recall? Also, I'm downloading from the excel sheet but some links are down. Is there way, a place where volunteers can reupload? Otherwise, can dead links be deleted?

Your favorite sceneries?

Which are your favorite sceneries? Since I've played offline for over a decade while barely installing an addon, my favorite scenery has been Airstrike Challenge thanks to the proximity of the ground targets. Now, though, I'm exploring new sceneries and I would like to know not only your favorite sc...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

That's one heck of an assumption I knew there was going to be someone who missed the part "and from what I gather from the forum". Same goes for decaff.

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

I’d like to wrap up with an analogy. I’m somewhat of an audiophile. Imagine Soji makes a new, never before seen speaker and amplifier set he designed himself in his workshop. However, the technology is so unique it requires a special kind of cable between said amplifier and speaker. Unfortunately, S...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

I knew from the onset I was going to encounter quite a lot of resistance to a proposal that is actually quite normal. But I had gotten a gist of YSF community's mindset and there're some misconceptions that in order to tackle, needed some rather blunt and open ended statements. I think we've shared ...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

I do hope the models that are gone for good, whether voluntarily or not, were the shitty ones -pardon my French. It is a real shame that models will gradually disappear as modders lose their hosting services, backup files, enthusiasm, or even their life. I also think it's quite selfish to deprive th...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

If we can agree that there is no co-o-o-o-o-pyright (said in a scary voice) violation in modifying, repainting, repackaging, redistribuiting non original works, in other words, models of real vehicles, the YSF community could have preserved so many models throughout the years. Instead, many works of...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

I'm sure you can't take credit for the design of the aircraft but can take credit for how you designed the model and the effort you put into it. 100% agree. It seems so difficult to create such 3D models at least to me. Besides, preventing people from creating these 3D models is stifling epecially ...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

If that were so, plastic model manufacturers and toy makers wouldn't need licensing agreements. That's because they're turning a profit and mass-producing them. Making models/mods for games is completely different. Designs are copyrighted. Names are trademarked. To make and sell a toy of a real air...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

In regards to copyright, aircraft names and even designs are not copyrighted. The only thing you cannot do is copy a patented technology then build it, or get their official design schematics and photocopy/photograph them. If that were so, plastic model manufacturers and toy makers wouldn't need li...

Re: YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

First of all, thank you for your replies. I understand the spirit of YSF, both in the way real life aircraft are represented and why it's deemed permissible and the way we handle other modders' creations; seeking permission and giving credit as a form of a gentleman's agreement, as described by Gunn...

YSF addons and copyrights... Can you copyright a design that has been stolen?

YSF modders have the audacity to attach copyright restrictions to models that are outright copies of real aircraft and/or real airlines. Is that even legal? Bare in mind there isn't a single modder that I know of that has obtained permission from the aircraft manufacturer or airline and that yes, th...

Nicely done there, Strike. Seeing the scenario that's unfolding within the map recalls my memory of P. W. Singer's Ghost Fleet in a way, haha. Nicely done, once again.

I was able for the first time to kill all ground targets without myself dying. My aircraft of choice, stock F/A-18E Super Hornet since it can carry flare pods and everyone has it.

Ah, yes. I was planning on altering the colors of 171st's scenery pack, too. I might as well do that soon. The only reason why I don't use 171st's scenery is because their destroyer fleets look like Jamaican container ships from afar. I also wanted to correct the colors of ground objects but my lapt...
