Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Revision as of 15:42, 30 November 2009

FlightProSim is "One of the Most Realistic Flight Sims Available", according to its website. It is a commercial copy of FlightGear so the FlightGear developers are very happy with this compliment. FlightProSim however, is in no way (officially) related to FlightGear, apart from the fact that the first is 99% (if not more) a copy of the later.

I bought FlightProSim, what to do?

If you have bought FlightProSim, try to get your money back as soon as possible. You can have (almost) the same software for free nevertheless! They guarentee a 60 day money back trial periode, so this should be no problem if you react quickly.

The FlightGear developers are interested in the package to see whether the package complies with the GNU GPL terms or not. Therefor we would like to receive a package for inspection. If you own a package and were unable to get your money back, please contact the developers through the mailinglist.

Legal or ilegal?

The GNU GPL license under which FlightGear is released allows reselling under certain terms. FlightGear developers have difficulties with the way FlightProSim is acting and doubt if they are acting legal.
