I've been chatting with thealx about the issues he raised, which won't be disclosed here.

However, it means that I'm going to pay for Github pro, and make the repo private. I don't mind paying, as it's only $7 per month, or $84 per year. I'll keep it monthly for now, then if there's going to be continued development work, we can dicuss paying for it for a year. And if I ever get to the point of not wanting to be the admin anymore, I'll arrange handing over to someone else.

The Pro account will also give us more control over access to the code as well, so it's probably for the best. Everyone that's using the repo at the moment is on as a collaborator, so access shouldn't change.

I've now made the repo private. Should I restore the original licence, or add some other licence that make it non-shareable?


Edit: Actually, I just re-read the licence and realised it's mainly the same as the original, so I'll leave it as it is. I had in my head that I'd made it a GPL licence.

Does anyone know who the http://eech.robfox.net/utils.html website is maintained by? It would be nice if he would make the source code available for his utilities, maybe one of us could add in some features and upgrade the editor tools.

I tried a Whois search on the site and it is still a live site (registered to 2021) but all personal details were replaced by "REDACTED FOR PRIVACY".

Guess he doesn't want people contacting him.

I seem to remember a guy called Rob on this forum a while ago putting up links to a terrain editor. I'll have a look and see if I can find him.

Cheers,

Andy

I might dig through my emails. I seem to remember having contact with them a while ago, but I'll not put their details on here. If I can get in touch about the source code, I'll let you know. I remember being in touch with someone about a GWUT editor, and got the source code, but I can't remember if it's the same person.

I think Sockzien used the terrain and map editors last to make the Poland map, so they might know.

Back Again,

I found a copy of Robfox's BED utility that I'd downloaded years ago and unzipped it. In the introduction were comments on how it came about. It seems that user CEP}|{ATH contacted him about using it and he allowed it. It intro was written by Starshoy who I'm pretty sure is still a member of the forum.

It may be worthwhile trying to contact Starshoy and see if he has any contact details for Robfox.

Cheers,

Andy
