Isn't Xors3D abandonware? If so then using it outside of license is a copyright violation which the author can exercise against you at their discretion, so nobody is really going to want to put themselves in that position.

You can either contact the author and get them to re-release it as free open-source with a permissible license or you can find a 3D engine that is similar to Xors3D and port your project over, preferably an open-source engine.

Is the Xors3d commandset exposed? In other words, does your game editor allow people to program using Xors3d commands?

I'd give the license agreement that came with the software a read, but if you've produced your editor with a licensed copy of Xors3d, I don't see the issue?

Presumably you're covered by the license conditions when you bought your copy and unless there was some sort of clause that said you could no longer publish works if Xors3d was no longer under development, you're fine.

(Obviously I'm not a lawyer but you could probably ask on Reddit or somewhere and get a more legally informed opinion)

I thought it's Obvious i got a license..
The question still remains..
Can i release an editor based on xors3d?

Without giving access to xors3d commands by programming?!

Squid made Xors3d to be like Blitz3d - back when it was being sold.

You can't release software that exposes the language to users but you can release software made with the language.

Also, you think Squid's going to pop-up and sue you for millions?

Release the Kraken.
