I am curious though. There was a big backlash against certain popular modders who "sold out" and made their Skyrim mods paid only and/or took down their free version from Nexus. One mod that pops into mind is SkyUI. I wonder if this'll affect the community respect and popularity of his mod going forward after this fiasco.

I don't think SkyUI was taken down? I think they were just talking about it going paid-only. Even so, everyone and their dog had already downloaded the latest version of SkyUI and they hadn't done much development to it, if any, for well over a year if not more.

Them going paid only wouldn't have magically deleted everyone's older, freely downloaded version.

I was worried, however, that they'd continue to develop for it and that development would start causing issues.

No loading times would be rather bizarre. I think perhaps he means no loading screens?

Defective games only. Considering the fact that EA called SimCity and BF4 at launch to "just have a few issues", good luck on them ever calling a game defective.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what Beth's attitude becomes to simple things such as "cleaning" your mods. They refuse to do so for their DLCs, because they don't support modding, and cleaning mods is only an issue if you use mods/extra content.

So what, Beth, are you going to keep releasing dirty DLCs that will fuck up massively with other mods installed, when those mods have been paid for and you took your fucking ridiculous 66% cut?

(Actually, I already know the answer to this, it's yes. They still won't give a shit.)

In reality, you (Bethesda) just wants to make money off all these mods, because the ten million copies of the game those same mods have sold isn't enough.

I don't understand how you can still cling to that accusation of generic evil corporate greed in the face of the facts they're presenting. They aren't spending millions of dollars to support mods (and losing millions when modding forces your game to be rated M instead of T, interesting tidbit there) for 8% of their audience. That doesn't make good business sense, and is certainly not what a heartless, money-grubbing monster of a company would do.

This has become a bit of a pointless argument, but if you genuinely believe that any corporate entity the size of Bethesda does something for any motive other than that it makes them money, I don't know what to tell you.

They allow for mods because they've seen the incredible tail-end in sales it gives to their titles, plus the absolutely fucking massive amount of goodwill and free publicity it generates. But even so, hey, if you can start charging a few extra dimes for it?

Do you seriously think Bethesda gives one flying shit about their modders making any money? If they did, they wouldn't take 66% themselves. They'd just give all but 5% to their modders, or they'd actually hire the good modders into their team. (You know, like Obsidian did with Oscuro.)

Bad because the next game Beth makes will support the paid mod workshop (Fallout 4).

But I will give them credit that they did act quickly, but they should have NEVER done this to "an established, years old modding community".

But it will be coming.

But at least if it's supported from the start, you have the choice whether to stick with free mods, or use paid mods. There's no scenario where one mod which is so ultra-pervasive that everything else depends on it, suddenly goes paid only and fucks up your entire mod list.

There will always be free mods if you choose not to pay for them.

In any case, I'm glad Valve did the right thing. What happened these past few days was horseshit.

But we also believe our community wants to reward the very best creators, and that they deserve to be rewarded

"We also believe that we deserve to be rewarded 3x as much as the creator, which is why we do the 75/25 split."


Also, Shivering Isles was an expansion pack, not a DLC.

Yet, in just one day, a popular mod developer made more on the Skyrim paid workshop then he made in all the years he asked for donations.

Yep, that's cool. Also possible, one day, when something as massively dependent as SkyUI or SKSE goes paid only, thousands of mods could potentially stop working, and your entire modding scene collapses.

If you really want mod makers to profit from their mods, then let them take 95%. In reality, you (Bethesda) just wants to make money off all these mods, because the ten million copies of the game those same mods have sold isn't enough.

Didn't he say he was quitting interviews forever?

didnt that 4 yr old girl stomp out of the room and go hug her dolly?

Hahahahaha.

In any case, same old Peter Moeleyeeneneuuuxxx. Nothing's his fault, he wasn't lying, the press just quoted him wrong, he is the most awesome thing to happen to gaming, yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda.

Why people still fall for his schtick is baffling.

Now is the time we have to show the world that they don't need to be anaesthetised by the deluge of rubbish from TV and film,

"Instead, they can be anesthetized by the deluge of rubbish from shitty game producers like me, who promise everything and deliver nothing!"

Anyone who thinks current day TV produces nothing but rubbish versus the golden flower that is gaming has his head so far stuck up his own ass he can do a colonoscopy without using a fucking camera.

"Oh, I'm gonna quit, such a controversy! Waaah!"

How about you didn't try to make money off your mod that had other people's work in it, buddy? It doesn't seem that hard to figure out that that wouldn't be acceptable. (to the original modder, even if Valve was like "oh sure it's fine! Sell! give us our 30%!")

In the end, the things he's mad at are Valve being assholes. (surprise! Their customer 'service' is getting to be worse than Comcast's.) It has nothing to do with Skyrim or modding. No need to turn it into such a fucking drama.

I have a nest thermostat. Great little device. The amount of times I've left home, been halfway to work and thought "Shit, I didn't turn the heat/air down" have been too many to count. Used to be I'd sit at work irritated at heating/cooling my house for no reason. Now I just do a few taps on the phone and voila.

I don't think I'll need the thermostat. Open window, cool, close window, warm.

My three favorite Trevor moments: (in secret text)

1) Transitioning to him, and he's on a little Faggio scooter, chasing another guy who is also on a Faggio, and keeps yelling out at him "You're my Scooter Brother! SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTER BROOOOOOOTHER!"

2) When he finally kills the dock worker and his girlfriend in their apartment, and walks out with the walls and windows just covered in blood, and he just looks so weary and shakes his head as if even he himself can't believe he just went that fucking nuts. I dunno, it just made me laugh.

3) Transitioning to him, and he wakes up a tiny little island just off the coast, wearing nothing but tighty whities, and he's surrounded by empty bottles and dead bodies. I mean, let your imagination run wild.


And then of course there's the time that Michael calls Trevor a Hipster.
