Post news RSS Just to clarify a misunderstanding where the models are from

Got a negative review from someone, saying that the flashlight model is stolen.

Posted by on

Got this review:

Awful, Hated this piece of shit.

this game uses stolen models from other games. the new flashlight for example is from Ildefonse.

They need to make their own models and stop stealing them

(Review Score: 1)

The new flashlight is from Google Sketchup:

The license to use Google Sketchup is here:
As far as I can tell, there is nothing that forbids to use the models commercially. If someone sees a paragraph where it is mentioned otherwise, don't hesitate to tell us. If we have broken a legal term, the flashlight will be removed. And the old flashlight will be used instead.

The old flashlight is bought from TurboSquid:

More models acquired from TurboSquid:

Models, textures and other from Unity Asset Store:

I hope this has clarified something.
