Ahoy. The name is Mikom. I do 3D modeling, rendering and just general design. I'm a person who over past few years has taken a great interest in formulating ideas in 3D space. Ideas are my trade in many ways yet I also lean towards the practical. I have worked on several mods and game projects though modeling for games is not my first area of expertise. Here on ModDB/IndieDB I keep an eye on the Humor Satire Parody group, I follow the modding community and watch game productions that have peaked my interest. Feel free to go through my blogs or image gallery if you want to get a glimpse of what I do. As always, have a nice day!

You try pulling away a motorcycle when a car is seconds away from driving over you. Motorcycles are heavy, you can just pull them aside.

Clearly this driver lost control over something. Probably his mind. I can only imagine how that biker must feel watching his awesome bike being steamrolled by the car.

Black Mesa is a mod that did a great job bringing back the story and gameplay of the original Half Life.
I hope the developers of this mod find success on Steam.

The really priceless part of this picture however lies in the old Bagends casually shoved underneath the drawer.

Joking aside, if you put those books on their side, you could put a second monitor on them and thus extend your desktop that way.

I personally am glad to see Valve got rid of this system so quickly. I am hoping they will listen to the majority of the community and implement some form of easy donate function.
However, like you said in the article, it would be very hard to predict how many people would actually go ahead and donate.

The question is, can you really expect a majority to donate money? But then again ... is giving them no choice but to pay really an acceptable way to generate income?

As someone who has several relatively popular mods up on the Steam workshop I'd say that while I think a donate option is great and I wouldn't hesitate to enable it on my mods, I still would NEVER charge money for my mods.

The mod I made is there to add content to a game that someone already paid for and to make the game better or more personalized. This is time and effort I am willing to spend making a mod that I myself can enjoy and that others can enjoy with me. There is no expectation of financial gain involved for me during the creation process.
If I were to charge money for a mod, then it would all of a sudden become a product with a cost.

That is what mods will become if paid mods become a standard in the video game industry. People will undoubtedly tap in to this new source of moneymaking and all of a sudden you have people making mods specifically to make money.
...and like you said, putting a price tag on mods will also put a great deal of pressure on modders. Especially the ones that may not have thought it through what it means to charge money for something.

A new system enabling modders to charge money for their mods will probably be put in place in some form or other in the future. Hopefully that system will be more fair.

One thing I am curious to see in the future is whether paid mods (of any kind) will bring back mod popularity with bigger titles and publishers.

I think the option to pay mod developers is great however the way Valve implemented their recent system is bloody aweful.
They should have left it at a customizable donate button and that's it.

In my opinion I think that the option to pay for mods is great but not giving people the option to use a mod for free takes away from the spirit of modding.
Developing a mod is not like developing a full game, mods are made to improve, change or personalize a video game experience.
I wouldn't be surprised that if DLC wasn't so common nowadays, this new system on Steam would never have taken shape.
DLC and mods were always two separate things but now... can you still say the same?
