Default Policy regarding redistribution of ED's files

After putting more thought into it, I'm a bit confused about ED policy regarding the distribution of their files.

Now, my question has nothing to do with the Bell-47, it's about the files I've uploaded to the user files website:
Desert M-4 Soldier
Environmental Protesters
French Navy E-2C/D
Customizable Cargo Weight Hotfix

Like stated in the description, all of them are based on ED's work, modified or edited by me.
Is it tolerated or are those going to be taken down?

I'm no expert, but if it's for use in DCS you should be okay.

Give me some time and we can check your files with ED

Ok, thanks BigNewy.

All these were uploaded a while back and never had any problem with them.
But I updated the license today because some of them were listed as "Freeware, unlimited distribution", changed that to "Freeware, do not redistribute"

I don't really care if the textures are removed but the cargo hotfix is essential in order to enjoy most of the new cargo objects if you're flying the UH-1H.

You should be aware, the weight limitation on certain "Cargo" has a reason, as even empty it would be too heavy for the Huey!

So "Fix" as in "bug fix" is wrong.

Actually it is a "weight cheat" that let you use cargo that usually a Huey shouldn't be able to lift.

Don't get me wrong, I like this little tweak, but it "fix" implies "currently there is something wrong, which isn't".

(...)"fix" implies "currently there is something wrong, which isn't".
Is that the official stance on the issue ?
I mean, did you, as a translator, saw that issue raised by the testers and that was the answer provided by the devs ?

Sorry, No, it is just my personal oppinion.
Don't get me wrong, I like this tweak, as it helps with making more diverse and interesting missions!
Just the wording is a bit irritating. Especially in the light of certain parts of this community often overreacts.

Sorry, if my earlier post sounded negative.

It didn't sound negative, I was just worried the issue had been raised internally and I just had to deal with it for the sake of a very subjective realism concern.

Eight Ball I would not worry, your files look ok to me, most of them are skins.

Also if they are on the user file section ED had to approve them anyway.

Yeah, it's just Sithspawn post got me worried a little but after checking the link you provided I was reassured.

Thanks BigNewy
