Hi,

I bought recently a download version of X-Plane 11 directly from Laminar Research. Now i went back to Prepar3D v3. Is it legal to sell my X-Plane 11 and how is the right procedure? I have an invoice and activation code.

It's illegal to go back to P3D. So you're already in trouble.

I think a lot of folks don't realize that when the "buy" software they are just buying a license to use it, they do not own it and therefore can't "resell" it to someone else.

The (very short) EULA of X-Plane 11 is this:

"You agree to use X-Plane for non-commercial purposes only. (See X-Plane.com/pro/ for information on professional licenses.)
You agree to not make copies of X-Plane.
You agree to not distribute the artwork from X-Plane, or any derivative thereof, without permission from Laminar Research."

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I suppose that if he uninstalls permanently X-Plane from his PC, and sells the activation code to another person, there isn't any breaching of the EULA.

I think you need to hang on to it...at least for posterity sake and more importantly when XP is the only sim left standing.

Bernie, i'd be glad to sell my XP 11, too.... Bought all versions since v5, always assuming that the next one would finally be what i had expected. Now it was the last one. Definitely. Thank god P3D got what it is now.

Good for you. Unfortunately blurries and terrain popping are absolute immersion killers for me (not to talk about the depiction of scenery at night).

Since the number of X-Plane 11 users is constantly growing (in absolute value AND relative to other sims), I'm sure you won't have any difficulties selling it! :cool:

Why would he want to go back to P3d version 3 when version 4 is out and it is 64bit. I guess he like the abuse. LOL

Just curious why you want to sell it ?

Many reasons: Scenery, multi monitor not as easy in P3D, clouds, no Force Feedback, visibility representation, contrast of picture, I have a lot of airplanes, scenery and so on bought for P3D, etc.

pls excuse my bad english, my native language is german.

Just for information: the X-Plane.org forum banned me, I think for the same question about selling above. Maybe they have problems with contentness.

First I bought the new prepar3d v4. The improvement was not as expected against P3d v3. I got my money back. I will buy it again when more compatible planes and accessories are available. What bdo you mean with "abuse"? LOL

Bernie

I know, your English is better, your German also?

What I mean about the abuse is that P3D v3 gave me so much problems with lag and oom so I was fed up with the abuse lol

This would be a question for Laminar Research. I don't think anybody here knows the answer, and we certainly can't speak for the developer.

Thank you.  This would be my advice as well. Send them a support query and you will get an answer. Otherwise sell the darn thing and or suck it up. This is a weird thread.

I have XP11, it works flawlessly, I don't get stutters, there is no popping of anything, blurry anything. No tweaks out of the box perfect.

I have P3DV4, it works flawlessly, I don't get stutters, there is no popping of anything, blurry anything. No tweaks out of the box perfect.

 I have a fairly robust computer, I made sure that the MB, the RAM, the video card all worked well together when I had it built. Perhaps its just your setup, have you posted your specs.

I also have P3DV3 and FSX both have OOMs, both can produce stutters, I have to tweak the hell out of them to get them to work properly. Always stuggled with them.

I suggest you have computer or setup issues or have tweaked stuff that perhaps should have been left along. There it nothing wrong with XP11 its fantastic it has a different fell and look that P3DV4 and that is good, nice to have variety.

 

my specs

I7-6700K  4.2GHZ overclocked
GTX 970 4GB 7GHZ GDDR5
RAM 16G DDR4 2133MHZ
ASUS Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Z170 Skylake DDR4 3PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 1PCI CrossFireX/SLI USB3.1 Motherboard

Well said man. I agree if you are serious about flight simulators  then make sure you have a good rig with a lots of ram.

If you have the DVDs, you could easily resell.  For digital download, the license ties to you, so you are out of luck.  Why sell now anyway? typical XP version runs for 5 years, who knows, in 4-5 years you will be glad you did

No, you can't resell your digital download, the EULA as indicated in the first page does not permit it.
