Modular System licences

Question:

what licence(s) is the stuff in Modular Systems? Particularly the Parachute?

I'd like to put the parachute into the Tu-22, but if it's not GPL2+ I can't do it & have it pushed to FGAddon

I think that as the V-1 is published as GPL3 then the Parachute is GPL3 by default?

failing that - do we have an emall address for Tomaskom?

I didn't actually know we had a parachute in it...…….

Does the Orbiter have a parachute?

Yes but it’s JSB - there are good shader based animations in it though

The parachute code is used in the V1 & the Firebee - it's in Modular Systems/Parachute-YASimThrusters

Oh! That was Tom's work, and I can't remember if it includes the model or not. But ALS has a parachute model, used on the Orbiter, which I've been meaning to try... we should probably try a combination of the two.

Anyway, the licensing on that will be GPL, I'm almost certain, as I think Tom was a big believer in open source being as open as possible. But it's worth checking one of his aircraft as a signpost to his preferred method of licensing.

He didn't put a license on any of the code directly, but he stated that the combined lighting kit was GPL in a posting, but as it's gone from the downloads section we don't know what version

He also stated in the posting that we could use the code anywhere

I think I've found him on LinkedIn - if I get a request from the devs I can try messaging him
