I just loaded up on mods and was going to start playing again for the first time in over a year, after making peace with not having Tiandong or Blackrock in the current version, and then realized just how many DaRa ships I used to use without even realizing they weren't vanilla. My main goal in my original playthrough (other than just exploring) was to find a Sturmovik S.
I hope the mod's updated soon.

Are unofficial updates ("bootlegs") something that you oppose, or are they ok by you?

There has been a small amount of recent talk of them in the Starsector Discord, haven't seen any pop up yet but wanted to see if you had a stance.

The relevant line from the license file is:
Quote
You may NOT under any circumstances:
- Re-publish this mod or features from it under your own name, even if you have modified assets, without original content credit

which implies that bootlegs are, at least, allowable under the license, with credit given.

I have no problem with people modifying DaRa files of their own accord to bring the mod up to current game spec. I DO have a problem with such updated versions of the mod being made publicly available.

Obviously I can't stop anyone updating the mod and sharing it, but I am concerned that this could cause problems when I do get around to releasing the official update. On one side, I'd prefer if players are able to add DaRa to an existing save when the update comes out - if they are already using an unofficial version, it's almost certain that moving over to the official version will require a fresh save. On another side, I'm sure people will try to make their own minor changes to the mod's content to balance it in the current game etc., and I don't want those aspects to give a false impression of the official update.

I expect that anyone who modifies DaRa to work in the current game version for themselves, is tech-savvy enough to also understand the consequences of doing so. However, the same may not be said of someone who picks up a modified DaRa file from another user sharing it publicly, and I'd rather they just not have the opportunity to pick up such a version in the first place.

In terms of the license, it's safe to say I was younger and less wise when I wrote that... Perhaps needs an update of its own to reflect the above! I'll just settle for saying, again, that I can't stop anyone doing what they want, I'm merely asking people to think twice and consider the implications.

Hopefully that makes sense, and I appreciate you asking for the clarification.

Hello, and thank you for working on the mod, I can't play a modded game without it, so I've been trying to port it for my own personal use and not for distribution. A barebones update to 0.9.5 would also be amazing if you could spare the time for it.

Would it be more acceptable if someone made a data folder patch to drop into your mod rather than an altered complete version, and posted the patch in this thread rather than it's own post? so as to not displace your work in any way?

I love your mod, and wish I could play with it in the latest version, but lack the knowledge to update it myself for personal use. In any case, I'll be looking forward to when you do update this mod :) Thanks for all your hard work!

Very important to remember that there's an unofficial update for BRDY on the mod page with Cycerin's permission
