Ok this is really pretty much the last permission I need, but I am having an extremely difficult time contacting this guy. All the email adresses I have found don't work. Also I'm confused from a legal standpoint about nightsoft in general, can I use their stuff because the readme says I can, but then if I do, do they legally own part of my mod (or the whole thing?)

From my understanding of their licence, they own the part of the mod that uses their material. As for contacting Raven, I doubt you'll be able to :lol: I've had to go through other people. Like you, those e-mail addresses of his that I have attempted have came back failed. I guess he is one of those people who only wishes to speak to those he knows, which is understandable, saves loads of people e-mailing him with request after request and such. But still... I believe, to use his stuff, you would have to state in your ReadMe that you are using items from him, and you would be required to put a copy of the Nightsoft ReadMe in their project somewhere.
ok. thank you, tycoon i will include the readme in my main readme as well as the aknowledgements folder in dow

I'd avoid it if at all possible to be honest, Nightsoft is very legally 'iffy' when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Raven Night is fine so long as you go to the effort of contacting him and the model authors, I contacted him through dynaverse forums, it takes him sometime to return the post but he does. he has always allowed me permission provided I include the nightsoft readme.

Register on this forum: Bridge Commander Universe :: View Forum - BC2 Project and pm Raven directly. As already stated you will be required to include a copy of the NightSoft EULA, and Book. I've never had a problem with Raven Night allowing me usage of materials (infact I've released several models that he originally done, or made renders of).
well the only file i wanted to use was the midnight universe package not even his ships
i am using some of the stuff to..and im not contacting anyone..the readme states i dont need to..any issues later,i will just refer to the readme where it states to add what is needed.
edit:heck after scanning that readme again i have noticed a need to contact the author..im gonna dump it from my project..add in a whole license agreement,contact author..not for me..all i was using were the planet glows..
yeah Im going to go through yacuzza first (seeing how he was the one who made the file) and the readme does grant permission providing I get yacuzza's approval
well i didnt think about it like that..maybe thats the route i should take,seeing as those other people might be a bit tough to contact.
