Ask your questions about Xonotic here

Afaik the normal Xonotic is completely v2. If you make a merge request you have to agree with v2, I thought there was no option for making it GPL v3.

But there is the GPLv3 document in the package, there has to be a reason for this.

Actually, if you read the COPYING file, it says Xonotic is licenced under GPLv2 with the "v2 or later" clause. Which is why the GPLv3 is included as well, because Xonotic as a whole can be released as GPLv3 in compliance with the GPLv2's "or later" clause.

Other GPLv2 projects don't have this "or later" clause, I guess that makes them incompatible with GPLv3.

So is it possible to contribute GPLv3 licensed files to Xonotic?
Reply

No, because then we would not be able to release Xonotic as GPLv2 or later. It would have to be GPLv3.

Talk to merlijn or divVerent about this, I personally don't know why Xonotic is sticking with GPLv2 or later.

But isn´t the term "... or later" referring to v3? I´m confused...

From the GPL's terms ("version" there refers to the license's version)
Code:
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
Foundation.

A project released under "GPLv2 or later" can be considered to be GPLv2 or GPLv4 or any future GPL license. A project released under "GPLv3" can not be interpreted as GPLv2, its use and redistribution must comply with the GPLv3 terms.

You can choose to re-release or fork a "GPLv2 or later" project under GPLv3 terms, but you can not do the opposite.

Shouldn't they go in "Xonotic - Tournaments"? Or is that not allowed because they are not "Official"?

if they would be in the wrong section Mr.Bougo already would move them

This makes sense to me.

Out of curiosity, what qualifies a tournament as "official"?

I'm guessing one that is recognized by the developers.

If I choose a skinnier player model, such as pyria, does it mean I'll take less damage from spread shots like shotgun?
Reply

No - the hitbox is the same, but you are probably harder to hit for others, because usually you aim at the model. Wink

The model sizes could... you know... have guidelines.

I guess that would explain why I land shots that I thought I missed Big Grin!

Would it be possible to change enemy models to just a 2D box?

A 2d box? A box is a 3d square Undecided
