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

my sending an aircraft that's publicly available for free to somebody else directly without the consent of the modder is a no-no? If it is something that is available to download, just send them a link to download it. If your friend doesn't have a network connection, load it on a flash drive and sh...

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

Here's some fun facts: If you take a photograph of the Eiffel Tower at night, you are not free to distribute it without paying a licensing fee, even if you are just posting it on Facebook. Until recently, a major music company owned the rights to the Happy Birthday song and enforced those rights aga...

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

I was just looking at the Mod forum at the SCS forums (American/Euro Truck Simulator) for something completely unrelated and noticed they had a prominent warning about mods using intellectual property from other companies. Basically they stated that they do not allow paid mods because when money get...

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

The more I think about it, I keep coming back to the fact that .dat, .lst, .dnm, .srf, and .fld files are just text files. Text can be copyrighted. If you create, say, a .srf from scratch, the text of that .srf is your original creation. I have personally taken the position that most of my addons ar...

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

Everything in the internet falls under fair use laws That's not how fair use works, at least in the US. Fair use is a very narrow set of allowances of copyrighted material for a very limited set of reasons (reporting as news, for example). There is no fair use protection for the use of, say, tradem...

Re: Weather in your area 2021

It's looking like the edge of the worst part of the storm in West Tenn. is going to be scooting right up against my area. They already had tornados along the Miss. River. It's raining and we're having some lightning nearby, but it looks like a rough patch is about 2 minutes away and will be here and...

We had thunderstorms and a lot of rain yesterday. Looking at the forecast, it looks like we will have more rain and thunderstorms tomorrow. Springtime in Tennessee.

Re: Can't open

Why would you (seemingly) join a forum to ask for help and then claim the help that was offered was wrong without even trying it?

Because Ken is being a maverick! :lol:

Re: Weather in your area 2021

Today in West Tennessee we are having a lot of rain and some thunderstorms. The weather says we are supposed to have strong storms into early morning tomorrow, but the future radar looks like it is going to be cleared out by 4 PM, so I don't know. Mississippi looks like it is going to get hit hard, ...

Re: Are there any servers alive?

The bottom line is that there are probably only a few of us who are somewhat active in the HQ community. It's never going to be "active" in the way that AAA online games or MS Flight Simulator are going to be active. I don't remember a time when: A. Servers were significantly more active or B. Someo...

We went from below freezing weather to 60s-70s in less than two weeks. Today we're getting some pretty heavy rain, flash flooding, and thunderstorms today.

Re: Something that caught my eye in Decaff's site

I always stuck with the 2009 version because it was compatible with most of the versions of YS in common use. I also preferred the user interface to the newer style.

Is USA Lite part of my USA48 map, or maybe Decaff made some compilation maps of his own?

Re: Screencaps (Unedited)

That's not how you attach a picture. You need to click "Full Editor & Preview" and add the picture as an attachment.

You can see the picture in your post because it is on your computer's drive. It does not appear in your post on any device other than your computer.

Re: Weather in your area 2021

Here's a picture out my back door. You might recognize that as the little shed ground object. haha We've had several inches of snow already, and it isn't over yet. At some point I'm going to have to grab a bowl and dip some snow up for snow cream.

Re: Weather in your area 2021

We're pretty much iced in already here in northwest Tennessee. We had light snow dusting all day, but it's supposed to be several inches over the next 24 hours. Several nights have lows below 10°F. The highest high looks like 29° on Wednesday, followed by several more inches of snow. The long range ...

In addition to Guam to SoCal and Northern Caribbean, I have also made "Pacific Rim", which is an extended version of G2SC. You may want to look at USA48, although I don't remember what it includes, I think it is parts of New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, Texas, California, Nevada, Washington, and ...

SNOW DAY 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This winter has been a repeated pattern where it would get below freezing for a few days, then warm up to the 50-60°F range and rain, dry out, and repeat. Finally, the rain and cold came together Tuesday night to leave a thin layer of ice on everything, which promptly m...
