Hey, thanks for sharing, do you know what the license is on these? I can't find it anywhere on the website. Can it be used in commercial works with or without attribution?

Hey,
thanks for pointing that issue.
i haven't found any explicit terms neither on website nor in files themselves, so i asked him, what they were. Well, he answered... he was too lazy to write official terms... so unofficially...

everything else is allowed but not distributing or reselling the product itself. Including the geometry nodes setups. Meaning if you want for example to sell some of the trees you make with tree generator you should apply the modifier so the setup is not distributed

Credits is always nice but not mandatory

So:

  • you can use what you produce/create commercially and without attribution, but cannot redistribute the tools by themselves
    While in current state:
  • you have no real legal binding

I am not sure since when, but it seems that Packt non-subscriber library is now limited to only 24 newest free claimed titles.
If you're like me and add them on a daily basis, Gamemaker essentials is still accessible, but will soon get pushed out, so I advise watching out for that.
Edit: Or apparently not. I now have way more than 24 books available once more...
It seems that owned products shown from subscription side (https://subscription.packtpub.com/owned) are limited to 24, but if you enter through https://account.packtpub.com/account/products then it's business as usual.

It has also happened to me a couple of times.

It is a rather old book from 2015 but sometimes it can still be relevant.

They also gave this book away back in March 2017.
