Valve releases Skyrim paid mods...with plans with other games...
So Valve has released Skyrim mods that you HAVE to pay for. Trying not to be 'that' guy who will just proclaims the end of PC modding, but what do you guys think. In particular our resident modders, I would really like to hear your thoughts. I think cosmetic mods are great and fine, but things that edit game-play I really dislike, because I means I have to fish out more cash to get the game-play experience that someone else is getting. Also, scams - there is a 24hr period to get a refund - but Skyrim is a particularly dicey matter with its strange papyrus scripts/engine.

Ironically I was just managing to get my head around the KF2 SDK and actually getting somewhere with making a custom ZED. Anyone think the paid mods will become wide-spread?

I think my only concern is scams and stuff like this - http://www.pcgamer.com/paid-for-skyri ... ved-in-a-matter-of-hours/

If there had been something like this around back in the day, Trauma studios might not have been screwed over by DICE and EA, they might have kept on going with DC for a while after.

Hopefully itl be a good thing

RIP paid mod service

http://steamcommunity.com/games/Steam ... detail/208632365253244218

took 3 days, hl3 confirmed, also dam that was fast.

I like one comment that pointed out how they said that their goal was to support modders and let them work full-time modding, but they only gave 25% of revue. I don't know the opinion of the modders on here but I agree that 25% isn't enough to live off of. Imagine if minimum wage was 10(insert currency here) an hour. So from that 25% that modders would earn would be 2.5currency per hour. Not much, yeah it can be said there are allot of hours in a day (or lots of people buying the particular mod) but even after 10 hours all you've got is a sore back and 25$ to show for, not much to live on.

But like I said, i'm not a modder so I can't really have an opinion. I do have allot of respect however for the modders that decided to keep things free because of their beliefs, anyway post done xD

Wow that was quick, guess they realised it was too much and too complicated to manage.
I think they had the best intention behind it, but i don't understand the money split.
Heres a pretty good video from Jim Sterling explaining stuff:-
