The Bunker - Gameplay, Tactics, and General Discussion / Licensing
« on: April 19, 2017, 10:25:54 PM »
Hello, I have some questions about licensing and copyright. If I wanted to make a game, and wanted to use item stat numbers (volume, weight, damage, etc.) and possibly crafting recipes similar to the ones presented in cataclysm, but none of the actual code, would that fall under the license? I ask because I'm making a game that I plan to sell later, and I would rather people not be able to freely distribute said game because of the CC license being applied.

It's not as if I have any intention to steal, I would give proper attribution even if it didn't fall under license because of how this game inspired me to create mine, I just want to do everything fairly with regards to the licensing, and not offend any of the creators.

In particular, it is the 'Share-alike' part of the license that concerns me.

I am OK with coming up with my own item statistics and crafting recipes if this doesn't work out.
