Legends: The Game's software license and distribution license
Updated: 31st Jan 2007, URL: http://license.legendsthegame.net/
This software is provided free of charge.
"You" are the reader/business/corporation, the "software" is Legends (a computer game for Linux and Windows OS), a "project" is anything e.g. software, games, multimedia, show, movie etc.
You are allowed to distribute unaltered copies, you are not allowed to distribute altered versions of our software. You should copy it for your friends, give it away on CDs, share it on P2P networks.
You are allowed to include our software in Linux distributions, such as Debian, Gentoo etc if there is no current version for this software, please ask us first though incase it causes conflicts.
You are allowed to create and distribute "mods" for our software. You are allowed to install shortcut icons and scripts along-side our software as long as the original software is still easily accessible and usable. ie you can make a "Total Conversion mod installer package" (into a mod folder if you like) as long as players can still play a regular game of Legends. ie, you are not allowed to completely re-badge the software to look like something else.
You are allowed to make and distribute scripts, texture packs, map packs, Interface skins, HUDs, voice packs etc as ".unf".
You are not allowed to write hacks or attempt to bypass game elements in order to give yourself an unfair advantage. e.g. Autoaim, HappyFlag, run-time hacks, server crashing, god mode etc. Do not post hacks in public, inform the developers privately of any exploits - posting hacks in public is hostile.
You are not allowed to sell our software. Minimal distribution costs are okay, magazine cover discs are okay too.
If You contribute your original work to our software project, we are free to use it as we want (in-game, website, trailer, modify it, not give credit for it etc). Also, You are free to use Your own contribution as you want in other projects. This means you can not use ANYTHING in our software in other projects unless YOU made it yourself or you have permission from the original author (not the developers or owners of the software) of the exact pieces you want to use. You will most likely need to give us a lot of credit too.
