Payware For Free??

Hey guys!

I recently saw this video of one of Carenado's aircrafts on Youtube, I didn't know if it was free or not so I asked the guy the posted the video. He said he got it for free from Pirate Bay.

As far as I know using those websites to find files that you are supposed to pay for is illegal. So is there anything the FS Community can do to avoid this to happened?

I mean there is lots of work put into some of this aircrafts, and there is people that's getting them for free??!!

I frankly have found over 50 great aircrafts that are freeware on a couple of sites that I found on this forum, they all have Dynamic Virtual Cockpit and great looking designs. There is no need to steal stuff like that!!!

What do you guys think about this?

Perhaps Radarman or flyaway could help you on that one, however i'm pretty sure everything on this site is freeware, and not taken from payware titles.If thats what your asking.

I kinda wasn't asking anything, just you guys opinion, I just really think its something that should stop 🙂

Like I said there is hours of work into those aircrafts. And someone has to be rewarded!

Well in that case... I think allot of the people who made them, do it for the love of it, and just want to share their experience with others, otherwise they would probably be working for payware companies.

So its ok? as long as they don't care? I mean why would they make it payware if they did it for the heck of it?

I think i might have lost the plot here...

The makers of the aircraft did'nt make it payware, otherwise you'd be paying for each individual aircraft. What your probably refering to is paying to get into the site itself?

ok, for example, if you want to get one of Carenado's Aircrafts, you have to go to his site or flight one and buy it with a credit card or something. So Carenado Team is directly making their product a payware not a freeware. They require you to pay in order to have the aircraft.

If there is people sharing it for free then you are not paying for it and therefore, Carenado Team loses money for each person that doesn't pay for it.

Oh yes!!! sorry Embarassed
That is totally and uterly illegal and the link should be reported to flight one or Carenados Aircraft.
I don't disagree, in which case, sorry about all the posts.

Heres the deal. Almost every payware for flight sim you can get off pirate bay or other utorrents. Now for carenado right now. Each of their planes are payware which means you need to pay in order to get the aircraft. I think someone said that up top but it looked like some confusion there so I just wanted to say something.

Torrents are a bad idea anyway, aside from the ethical points of stealing someone's hard work, you have no idea what you are downloading, you may just get a virus instead of that payware plane you thought you were getting.

Best to keep it on the level.

Man, I've never downloaded a payware add-on for free. I'm still silly though, i've downloaded about 3 films off the interweb. Does this make me a bad person? 😞

No, no... don't worry, the only thing that makes you a bad person is your over sized sig 😂

Why can't we just enjoy flight simming and NOT have political talk here? You're entitled to your opinion, just please use the appropriate forum. Thanks.

Topics tend to drift off topic due to no more talk about the original topic so something else starts I guess 😉

I don't think so. Bel was talking about 'torrents' - you are talking about 'torrent sites'... NOT the same thing.
