FlightGear being sold as another product.

Postby AndrewG45 » Sat May 22, 2010 11:01 pm

i have no idea were to put this but


http://www.flightprosim.com/

Navigate to the screenshots section,looks pretty similar right?there is nothing said on the web site as being authorised to sell flightgear by this name!

i have not played flightgear in a while but i remember the yellow chopper with the red cross on it(about half way down in screenshots)from flightgear,that's what put up the "red flag" to me.


Also scroll to the bottom of the screenshots section,you should see a screen with a white tri-jet aircraft in a Windows XP style window,look,it clearly says FLIGHTGEAR!

P.S. Everything is messed up,is it not? If a new video game comes out(like Modern Warfare 2 or other major games) people will crack it and give it away free on the internet,if a quality,but yet free game(like flightgear) comes out people steal and then sell it....makes me sick.

Thanks for your concern, but this is already a known issue that has been discussed thoroughly elsewhere in the forum. Unfortunately, there is very little we can do about it b/c of the GPL. I don't fully understand it myself, so if you have questions, your best bet would be to do a forum search for flight pro sim.

This has been discussed for about a year. Why don't you go check out what everybody else has had to say in the millions of other topics.
