News Comments > Steam Launches Paid Mod Support

A lot of people mod for attention/cred so there will always be a free alternative, I can't get worked up over this. Some mods I wouldn't mind paying for anyway (SkyUI for example). Modding has become a bit of a lost art in the industry overall thanks to DLC so whatever encourages more of the practice in my book.

True. Perhaps I'm way too cynical since when money gets into the equation, and considering this is the gaming industry we're talking about, I can't help but think everyone will become a greedy cunt. I hope this will really help everyone, modders and gamers, but I'm too cynical at this point not to think this will fuck things up badly in the future. Hope it won't, though.

IMO this is the worst thing that could happen. I agree that modders should be rewarded but that should be in the form of donations. This will open the door for everyone, good and bad modders, to charge for mods and we'll have no way to know which ones are better.

With this move Steam has thrown PC gaming a lot of steps back. Modders should be rewarded but not this way, this is the wrong way about it.


Try any mod, Risk Free
It's still important to spend a little time learning about any product you are about to purchase. But, if after purchase you find that a mod is broken or doesn’t work as promised, you can easily get a refund of that mod within 24 hours of your purchase. View the full refund policy here.
Free, Paid, or Pay What You Want
With over 24,000 free mods available for Skyrim in the Steam Workshop, there will always be lots to do and explore for free. Now you can also find mods with a specified price, or mods where you can choose how much you wish to support the creators. The price is up to the mod creators

Good luck having a single day trying to find if a mod is for you.

Instead of the buy button, they should replace it with a donate button, that way I don't think anybody would have anything against.

Hell, even EA didn't go this far. Holy fuck.

My GOTY so far, already far better than SC4 was at launch (Let's not even talk about the latest SC). This is the game that finally made me migrate from SC4 and it will only get better from here.

So, is this game out of the beta yet, after 3 years?

Best game since SimCity 4, surpassing it in fact if we compare SC4 at launch and CS at launch. And with the base they built with this game they are now able to expand it in any way possible, not counting the brilliant mods out there like the SimCopter mod for instance.

Between this and Pillars, I think I have my GotY already.

Also, this.

It's fucking glorious. Beats Wasteland 2 for my favorite RPG of the year, or past year even.

First Pillars reviews are in and it appears the game is nothing short of amazing. Seems we have a true classic in our hands.

Glad I backed this up, bye bye social life.

Just FYI, the same people that developed SecuROM are the ones behind the company that develops Denuvo, hence why it is one of the most hated DRMs right now, it inherits all the badness of SecuROM and adds even more on top of it.

Got a feeling Visceral is next in line for EA's butchery of studios.

Hardline is such a bland, average game that even as a mod it's bad. That they are charging €60 for this is insulting on so many levels and apparently both the press and users agree with ratings really tanking, especially on the user's review side.

And this is how you fight piracy. No mandatory online shit, no DRM shit, just provide a great service and people will have incentive to buy it.

Not that EA or Ubisoft will ever understand this.

Steam customer support is amongst the very worst out there. It takes weeks for the to reply to any problem and the reply is usually a copypasted answer.

Cities Skyline doesn't require fart clouds to power the Ai

Somewhere, an ex-Maxis dev is silently crying and an EA marketer scratches his head at the success of this game.

Awesome, congrats guys!

Great game, but be warned, it's not a "just plop shit down to make it look pretty and it'll work" city builder. So far every time I've reached ~10K population my city has ground to a terrifying halt due to traffic issues. I'm finally starting to wrap my head around them, which is making it a bit easier, but it's definitely a thinking man's city builder.

However, it is SO easy to lose hours and hours and hours in this game, it's incredible. And there are already roughly 900 hojillion mods/files available on the Steam workshop too.

But Creston... you can't be having fun, you're not using the power of the cloud to power the game!!!

Well deserved, it's definitely the best city builder since SimCity 4 and with a few patches and tweaks it will easily surpass it.

RIP Terry Pratchett. The world is now a bit more grey and sad, not since Douglas Adams' death have I felt this upset.
