Permissions for use
How do I get permission to use 4.33 for my flight sim center. I have been using Falcon Allied Force and was anxious to update my older 4.0 for use, which I did, but my son noticed that I need permission to use the software as an arcade, which I am not, but similar.
Is it for commercial use?
From the FAQ:
Q: Can BMS be used in a commercial context?
A: This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Tommo Inc. and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.
Other than the fact that BMS is not to be used for commercial uses (so you need permission from BMS - which you are asking about here) you also need to think about the rights holder Tommo Inc. who you would also require permission/ licence to use the base Falcon 4.0 that BMS is a modification of.
I draw your attention to this thread.
Thanks guys! No longer offered for flight. I’ll stick to STEAM DCS. Great mod!
Can I just clarify, does “commercial use” mean getting money/income from the sim? For example, scenario 1 is a sim-center with maybe 8 pit setups and a user can pay in order to play, maybe even get tutorials whereas scenario 2 is a sim-center with maybe 8 pit setups but this is used in a school, flight school maybe? or used as some sort of intro-trainer for air cadets.
Basically, scenario 1 has the “customer” paying to keep the doors open and put food on the table of the people who run the center.
Scenario 2 has the government (or charity?) paying to keep the doors open and put food on the table of the people who run the center.
Both a no-go?
Who was it who lately posted a link to a commercial sim center that seemed to use BMS? Just a few weeks ago…
Yeah, I remember that one.
Should probably fix the typo on that splash screen.
“Unauthorized rental, sale, arcarde use…”
