Use of the map graphics

Post by mpathy » January 7th, 2019, 1:30 am

Hi there!

I have a question about using the graphics of Wesnoth for another program.
There is a program called "Wonderdraft", a wonderfull tool to create maps for roleplaying games and other purposes.
This program allows assets to be imported, which can be transparent PNGs.

After I played Wesnoth I was curious and had a look into those folders: ... es/terrain

They would be perfect for it!

The assets would not be sold, just made available to users of this program in the structure the program needs it.

Now I want to know, first of all, what license are they?
I get different answers online, one source said GPL another source said its CC by-sa 4.0

Of course in the readme file it would be noted that these are game assets from the game - giving it an attribution.

(Otherwise, if its not possible to make an archive for this use out of it, what about a script downloading the folders from github, and moving the PNGs to the right position?)

Would it be possible to use?

Thanks for clarification in advance

Wesnoth's copyright policy for art can be found here. Specifically for your case, images are GPL if they were created prior to July 30th, 2017 and CC BY-SA 4.0 if they were created after that date.

I personally prefer not to use other user's images.
