Will stand alone TDM allow for 3rd party packaging?


Recommended Posts

I know it will be some time before stand alone TDM is available, but being a Fedora packager I can't help but get excited about the possibility of being able to do:


yum install darkmod


Once stand alone is complete, are they any licensing issues? Will everything be GPL or other FOSS compatible?

The entire source code (and thus the DLL and EXE produced from them) are under the GPL 3 (or later). All the art assets will be (once we go standalone) be under the following license:


All maps, textures, models, def files, audio assets, and all other
non-software components of The Dark Mod are licensed under the

and described at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/


So packaging will be possible.

Technically the sourcecode is under GPL 3 plus a few tweaks by id, but they're all minor tweaks; nothing that would stop anyone from re-packaging it. All those licenses really do is require you to keep the attributions and not commercialize it or change the license. :)

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

      Did I mention how absolutely grateful I am that TDM didn't get (and can never be) assimilated by a huge company like Microsoft, as is what happened to Minecraft?
