Permission for Conversions Official Policy of this Forum

Post by Wookey on Sat 13 Jun - 15:58

As our hobby exists for a long time, there are a lot of work (cars, tracks, Mods...) that have been made by people who do no not care anymore to anwer for email requiring permissions to convert.

So the official Policy of this forum is:

1) Convert cars and/or tracks for yourself (from rFactor2, Grand Prix Legends, Automobilista, rFactor, Grand Prix 4, GTR2, Assetto Corsa, Nuscar Thunder 2004, etc.) for private use, and test them thoroughly to debug until all errors are fixed. If you are stuck, feel free to ask for some help in this forum.

Get the F1C developer's toolbox (and everything you need for playing and updating the game) here:
http://wookey.bbfr.net/t848-f1-challenge-99-02-s-main-post-are-you-new-in-this-game-and-you-want-to-know-more-about-it-start-here

2) Include EVERYTHING you know about origin of the vehicle/track in a readme.txt file. Take your time to investigate who is (or who are) the original creator(s) of the car/circuit and put special attention when reading the credits file(s). Respect the original work of other authors is a must. Don't pretend you build from scratch if it is not true.

3) Ask for permission to the author(s) is there is any e-mail available (or account in other forums like DrivingItalia, ISI Forums, NoGripRacing, RaceDepartment, rFactorCentral, Sim Racing Mirror Zone, etc.) For make a conversion for public use, the original work must have at least six months of existence in Internet.

If the shared work of the original author(s) is too recent, wait at least 6 months for ask for permission (for example, if an user called Krientsen creates a 1972 Formula 2 mod for rFactor or any other sim-racing platform, and he releases it on June 24th 2015, you can start to ask for permission and convert to F1C the work of that author ─with Krientsen's permission given─ from December 24th 2015 [six months of place between the original work and the conversion project] onwards).

From 1st October 2014, conversions of too recent works are not allowed here.

4) Wait an answer for at least 30 days. Do your best to contact the original modder.

5) If answer is OK or there is no answer, feel free to share. When releasing the mod, car, track or trackpack, the title must include the name of its original author(s), not yours. Don't share is there is no way of contact the content creator of the work you are converting.

6) If any author(s) complain, please, send him/her to me: I'll retire if he prooves ownership. Also, an apology note to that content creator will be posted on this forum.

7) Official stuff (mod[s], cars[ets], track[pack]s, conversions, etc.) from other sim-racing platforms such as iRacing, rFactor2, Automobilista, Codemasters F1 series or Assetto Corsa (whatever) are not allowed in this forum because of reasons related to licenses, unless the one who release it proofs permission obtain through video recording his/her mailbox/private messages box, with zero manipulation of the facts.

That's all for now. Have fun, dear users!

Wookey.
