Do not worry, Masuda-san. If we are getting low on DVDs we can order some more so no-one will miss out on getting theirs.

So does this have all the dependencies available on the LEX?
I find that alcohol, taken in sufficient quantities, can bring about all the effects of drunkenness.

All the BSC dependencies yes...plus a few other non-BSC ones that we have permission to use. 

It goes without saying there is no PegProd stuff on there.  :thumbsup:

toxicpiano: It has all the BSC Dependencies plus model packs from the LEX where we had permission from the creators. External dependencies or those that we did not have permission to include are linked in a special section on the disk.

Im confused? Wouldn't this be against the EA rules, as a majority this content is not available for free, so therefore, it is mandatory for the user to pay if they want the content, making the donation just a fancy word to cover up for price? Wouldn't that then breach the EA rules?

I am not trying to persecute you guys in any way, I just want to make sure you understand this and have discussed this so you don't run into any issues with the law. Would make life harder for all of us if that happened, eh?  ;)

thanks for providing this however, i will consider donating.

Actually, the vast majority of the content on this DVD is in fact available for free here on the LEX.  There are several items on the disc that will be exclusive for some time... basically until the various creators decide to make their items publicly available on this or other exchanges.  There is only one thing on the DVD that will remain permanently exclusive to the disc and that is primarily because the file is so large it cannot be uploaded to most public exchanges.

Not to worry... it's been discussed.  ;)

Laws and the especially the EULA are just plain weird. I guess this is somewhat of a legal grayzone, but I seriously doubt it is illegal... &Thk/(

I wonder if they thought of uploading it in parts, like Reliant stadium...

You probably could sell content if you really wanted to. Ever been to those sims 2 sites where they charge you money to download their stuff? There are loads of those and the door hasn't been kicked in by EA ever.

We are not selling BATs in any case here. Even if the "get a free gift for your donation" wouldn't be accepted due to legal complications (there are no signs of that, though), it only means we would charge money for a service, not for the BATs themselves. Running a server costs money, and producing and shipping the DVDs cost money as well. All money that is donated goes right into those, and none of the contributors will be "paid" for their creations.

Simtrop has had the STEX disks as thank you gifts for years now without any legal implications whatsoever, so why would we have any?  ::) ::)  There ARE no legal issues, as the disk is NOT FOR SALE.  Any donations go straight to running this site, which sits on a dedicated server at a cost of around $180 per month...
