I've recently started developing a modpack based on the Age of Empires
technology tree / units etc. I have been using for testing graphics
which are hacked from the Help file. Would these be considered
'proprietary graphics used without permission' (like the C-evo tileset)
or not? They are freely available with the trial version.
Yes, they are proprietary. Go back and read that legal agreement that
you clicked through when you installed the demo. It's possible that it
allows you to distribute the images by themselves, but I doubt it.
Of course this doesn't prevent you from using them. Nothing is
physically stopping you from distributing them, but you may eventually
get a cease-and-desist letter. A better solution is to create a script
that will automatically extract and convert the images from the original
sources. This can be freely distributed (or even included in Freeciv)
and allows people who already have a copy of the game to use the tileset
I've attached the PNG file if anyone wants to look at them.
I think this list doesn't allow such attachments. Try uploading it to
the incoming directory (ftp://ftp.freeciv.org/freeciv/incoming), and
send us a link.
