Over $1M Paid to Rust Community Skin Authors

As a wise man once sang, rust never sleeps. It turns out that Rust never cheaps, either. Garry Newman, lead developer on the survival-shooter Rust, tweets that they have now shared over <Dr. Evil voice>one million dollars</Dr. Evil voice> in revenue with skin authors from the community (thanks PCGamesN). There are several reply tweets from skin authors expressing gratitude for the opportunity as well as the cash. Word is:

Word is: "Dunno if I already posted, but we've paid out over $1m to Rust's skin authors now <3."

*Disclaimer* I'm not a Rust player or modder.

Something tells me $1 million is a small fraction of what the Rust developers took in from those skins.

Don't know, don't play Rust, but the people making those skins probably enjoyed it, some were probably learning to potentially become professionals (not part time that is) and they wouldn't have made any money in many other games that don't pay back...so.
