  • Mood: Not Impressed
Those who have not been in the loop of the grand s***storm that has kicked off three or so days ago, lemme fill you in.

On the twenty-third, Steam has introduced a paid mods feature to The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim workshop area. This allows mod makers to charge users for their mods for them to use in their games. The price can range from free(which they all should be and not have this s***ty system implemented in the first place)up to however much the mod maker wants.

This did NOT go over well with almost every Steam Workshop user.

The most evident of this is all kinds of junk mods absolutely flooding Skyrim's workshop, ranging from adding a single apple to the inns to a chicken companion, all the way to outright thievery of existing content but with a price tag slapped onto them. The mods for Steam have taken this a step further and have also removed links that were linked to donations sites like Patreon, PayPal, etc, something that mod makers used to try and make a living off of donations from others that not only helped motivate them to continue on, but also allow them to pay for essentials like bills and such.

This is also ripping open the floodgates for all kinds of lawsuits, since this is even a chance for those against Steam to utilize this to try and pin Copyright Infringement on Steam since they would be making a profit off of the products of other companies. Garry's Mod would be THE number one culprit for this, since there are dozens of thousands of items and products from various series and franchises available as models or maps(this is going by the math a friend pulled in filtering out all the s***ty dupes, saves and replays of the entirety of the Gmod Workshop). That's if Steam gets the crazy-ass idea that this system actually works.

Not only that, but another bitter point to this is that Valve/Steam gets a major chunk of a cut out of this; 75% to Steam and publishers, the rest to the mod maker. Say that there's a mod that someone busted their ass over for the past four years and put it up for twenty bucks given on how much content and polish that went into it, they'd only get five bucks for each 'purchase', and that's if there are people who would even buy the mod anyway. Not to mention that it would be stolen by other pricks to try and pass it off for their own and get all the fame for something they haven't even made.

I'm not even sure if Gabe Newell, CEO of Valve and Steam, had a word in this, let alone even made aware on this whole thing. One thing's for sure though; Every Steam user is not gonna let them live this down, if ever.

Thinking of rescheduling when I do streams since the weekends aren't working out. When should I start doing them?
