Introduction

Datsville is a Lego-inspired city started in 1999 by users of LUGNET using the LDraw suite of CAD software. The goal of this project is to re-license models using a modern, open license, as well as to actively manage old and new submissions.

Details

Since this project is brand new, the main things that need to be done at this moment are:

  • Get permission to relicense models from the original model authors.
  • Determine what (if any) organizational steps need to be taken to get models in a state where they are ready to render into new scenes, animations and so forth.

Once that is completed hopefully we can develop some ready-to-use tools for people to develop the scenes they want.

The preferred licenses are:

  • LGPL 3.0 or later for programming code (POV-Ray SDL, JavaScript, etc.)
  • CC BY-SA 4.0 or later for artistic content (LDraw models, rendered images, etc.)

New submissions are of course always welcome! :)
