Don’t Copy Stuff From The Library

Today I had to ask a scenery author to withdraw their scenery from the Download Manager at x-plane.org because he had copied a large number of objects out of the library into his scenery package.

This is a call to all authors:

Please download the Developer Pack from the home page and read the instructions inside it – you do not need to copy any files to be able to use OpenSceneryX.  If you do, you are breaking the license and infringing the copyright of the generous people who have contributed to the library.

This has happened on a few occasions, always due to innocent mistakes and usually just one or two objects.  It’s easily fixed but it’s better if it doesn’t happen at all.  Please read the documentation in the developer pack – it’s very easy to use the library properly.
