TG 4.2 maintenance exp. etc.
« on: August 07, 2018, 02:00:45 AM »
Hi,
I have a little problem, I see that there is a new version of Terragen TG4.2 .
If I look in my profile it would seem that I would have to pay $249 for maintenance, yet it seems to me that the version I own has a Lifetime expiration. I had won one of the prizes in the VR contest

I'm not sure I understand, do I have to pay $249 to access TG4.2 even if I have a Lifetime expiration, I'm not dead yet.  ;)

Hi,
I think it means that your license does not expire any time. Not even when you do not pay the yearly maintenance fee or upgrade.
Something everybody has who paid for a license. But planetside staff will surely tell you what you have to do.
CHeers, Klaus

ps:  maybe better write directly to planetside support?

Your license never expires, but your access to updates and priority support do. All licenses of Terragen 4 come with 1 year of Mainteance, which includes any updates during that 1 year. After that year you need to pay to access newer updates, but you can choose not to, and still use your current version as long as you like. When a new release comes along that includes a must-have feature for you, then you can renew Maintenance at that time and get access to it, and all other updates for the next year after that.
