Source code license
« on: June 22, 2020, 07:03:09 PM »
Hello

im a bit curious on what the license for Darwinbots is? (specifically im wondering about Darwinbots 2, but i guess hearing some insight about 3 wouldnt hurt either if thats available)
forgive me if its written somewhere obvious, i looked through the wiki, i looked in the public source code, i looked through these forums, and i have as of yet found any mentions of a license

i assume is that the license is just full on copyrighted (as with any creation that has nothing else written on it)

For Darwinbots2 there's a license in the install directory:

Code: [Select]

I'm not sure what the name of this license is off-hand.

For Darwinbots3 it's just a normal MIT license, so it's more permissive:

Note I think it'll run under wine, though I haven't tested it myself.
