If the addon is released as payware with 3rd party modelers aircraft will they be compensated?

Seems only fair for their hard work /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Are you a man or a rabbit? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

rabbit ofcourse,

well, since I am touching it already, I might as well. but Im bracing myself already for the amount of flame I'll receive, but that didn't deter me before so, HERE GOES! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I think it's on a voluntary basis that these models are done. something like: "if you want that plane to be in FB, model it yourself. we'll put it in and that plane being in FB is your 'payment' or 'compensation' if you will".

so I don't think these modellers are entitled (morally or legally) to any funds.

these modellers, like gibbage, are incredibly talented people and if you, voluntarly (spelling s$cks) wants to donate money to them that's your business and another thing alltogether.

Very good man /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That was not so hard was it /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I see on another forum there is some sort of agreement between modelers and Oleg

I was just wondering how UBI is involved

Most are just happy to see their models included....besides modeling the plane is only a small portion of what goes into the final product.

If the models are made voluntarily, I agree they are not entitled to ask for compensation.

However, it would be a nice gesture on behalf of the publisher (or developer) if they were somehow rewarded - this will also encourage additional development - thus making the product better (hence, more sales, resources, etc.)

If a modeller is paid for a model they make, then they will have to own a full retail licence to 3D Studio Max. That runs on the order of $3,000 US Dollars.

By contrast, the Student Edition runs only $500.

So, unless 1C:Maddox Games is willing to pay over a thousand dollars per model, it is not cost effective for a aircraft modeller to be paid.

I think it matters so somebody wont have a sig like this (only 24k /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ):

EDIT: ok it was a big black image that was 24k in size that and 2000x2000...but despite Heuristic attacking me personally via PM calling me a "f***ing goof" and "asshat" about a stupid thread I took it off. It was just to show that size in the signature does matter as it messes up the screen.

I do not know any good signature message, so I will put this anyway.

To get ones work/design advertised trough out the world is
a very big thing to add in any artists potfolio.

Very high demands to get accepted by oleg and his team.
Not anyone can say they have a model in FB. And it might lead to "other" "payed" work. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

When I do a PCB layout for a client that is only a small portion of the work entailed in the project. I still get paid for my work.
