I have just finished making a new drone weapon that will penetrate shields (unlike its predecessor) however it has a some stuff that's not mine.

The fire sound comes from the third stargate ship pack in bridge commander. Also the odfs are derived from the odfs from the nuke and missile mod.

You'll have to contact the specific authors directly via e-mail rather than just posting here, especially for the BC content. But I'm sure you've already done so.

:cool:

Yes I have contacted them and I'm waiting for their response. How long should I wait until I can post the mod anyway?

you will probably have to wait until they contact you back, if not you could be facing copyright infringement.

Copyright infringement on something that's free and unofficial? Isn't that a bit extreme?

The rule is the following: You have to contact them and ask for permission. But if they ignore you and not answer anything within 30 days, then you can use the files with full credits. Of cours you would have to try several times and on several channels to contact them - just for sure.

I tried to contact them with the E-mail addresses that they provided. What other channels could I use?

Perhaps it would help if you tell us who they are. I'm assuming its draconis_sharpe's nuke and missile mod? If so, if I remember correctly, it should be ok to release as long as proper credit is given. Would still be best to wait the 30 days k_merse suggested (assuming you've e-mailed him (keep a copy of the e-mail)), after that you should be fine. As for the others you need to try asking in the bridge commander forums, and make sure you give their names. Somebody there may know;)

Sorry, I'm trying to reach Dave975 and DKealt (the ones who made the firesound) and Jeffery Drake as you already know.

P.S. I intend to give credit where credit is due. Also I really like your avatar Avon :)
