Hi,

We've allowed everyone a free 'Individual License' for Blender Publisher, including player and web plugin. The license.txt file in the download describes what this grants.

If you're interested to do more with it (=go for big publishing) just contact me.

For those not interested in reading licenses: you can use the player commercially for projects. Distributing our player in high volumes commercially is restricted to 1000 copies per project.

My advice is to give away the player for free and sell your content.

Well, when you or your client sells over a 1000 copies, just contact me for a nice donation!
Don't worry about this. Unless you deal with a large publisher, it's not an issue.

ton i have a question. how do u pronounce your name? i have never heard anyone with your name and i wonder how. is it "ton" like a 2000 pounds. or "ton" like tonny with the ny. or is it "ton" like tanya without the ya (i always use this one). it just always bugs me whenever i see your name and i don't know how to say it

Well, until i get good at modeling i don't think i'll be selling games over 1000 copies, but say i make a really killer game and it sells a bunch, is it possible to be able to sell more than 1000 copies of the game if we buy some kind of license from you?

Also, it's 1000 copies per game, or just 1000 copies?

How to pronounce ton's name? simple! (if you where born in Holland like me! :wink: ) but I don't think any of you can pronounce it... maybe he needs a A.K.A or something... like me.. or does anyone know how to pronounce Jan Willem????? :lol: cause that's my name... Recall is much beter I guess...

:!: :arrow: :D
