Re: Update issue

Apple Inc are currently violating Voxelands' copyright, until they stop doing so there won't be any updates for Mac.

Off-topic: That's the matter with Apple and Voxelands' copyright?

Re: Update issue

Apple are distributing a modified binary version of the game, without releasing source for the modifications.

This violates the license terms, and as such is a copyright violation. I've given notice to their legal department of the cancellation of their distribution rights, but they refuse to stop, and so are continuing to violate copyright.

I may have to get a solicitor/lawyer/someone involved.

Re: Update issue

If you're playing from an iPad, that means you're using the app "Exploration -- free multiplayer sandbox", right? That is actually the problematic modified version that darkrose is having trouble with. The guy who posted it on the App Store, "TUIJUN FENG", removed the credits page and licensing information, added microtransactions, and neglected to make his modified source code available.

Darkrose is actually trying to get the App Store to take down this app due to copyright and license violations. Neither she nor anyone else in this community can update or do anything about Exploration. If you want to try to contact the guy about updating it, go ahead; if you get a response maybe tell him we're going to continue actively trying to have it taken down unless he complies with the GPLv3 licensing terms.


I use a Vultr VPS (shameless referrer link).
