That doesn't look precisely like any Simutrans pakset I know of, though obviously the isometric setup -- with tiles etc -- seems pretty much the same.

I had the impression it was Pak32.comic I saw. But I never played that, so I might be wrong.

No pakset have those graphics. pak32.comic is too small and pak96.comic are too big and I know none of those graphics exist in 96comic.

But pak32 is GPL, you cannot steal this ...

If its licence is also open source, we can steal there too ;)

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!

You can, in a sense, by making non-GPL derivatives.

.. which is the true advantage of free software over non-free like simutrans and some of its paksets ^^
