Report RSS Paid "I am the King!" and on Steam?

On the 24th of April, we have learned that Steam would now sport paid mods on the Skyrim Workshop. What about “I Am the King!”? Did we even consider releasing it on the Valve platform in the first place?

Posted by on

It's official, Skyrim now has paid mods on the Steam Workshop!
What is our opinion about it? I won't talk about this new decision from Valve and Bethesda: opinions diverge among our team. However, I would like to remind you of what we plan to offer, where the mod will be available, and how it will be available.

Where can you download "I Am the King!"?

At first, "I Am the King!" should have been released on "Confrérie des Traducteurs" (our French partner), Skyrim Nexus, ModDB... But, some time ago, Valve has removed the size limit for the Workshop mods, which made us reconsider about where we would release IATK. It is true that we also plan to propose it on Steam. Automatic updates, automatic installation... Despite what a number of haters may say, the Workshop has some undeniable advantages!

Consequently, the mod would be available via ModDB, Steam, Skyrim Nexus and "Confrérie des Traducteurs". If you wish it to be released elsewhere, then tell us about it.

So, will we be charged for "I am the King!"?

A laudable concern. In the midst of the recent drama, what will happen to "I Am the King!"? Well, I am happy to reassure some of you that it will stay free!

Two reasons support this. The first is that we do not work for money. Our goal is to have fun creating without expecting a penny!
The second one? Resource-based problems. By proposing a paid IATK, we take the risk of getting in trouble with resource creators.

Good you are staying true to modding community. When too many people consider making "paid" mods I think we will lose the community meant in modding. Plus considering you can get more money from donations probably then from what Steam is offering.

Maybe, with big mods like IATK I'm not really sure, but with little mods... It's true !
Also, thanks for your support ;)

Steam is terrible. Please release on both. Oooh 'automatic' updates. Don't see how that's a massive game changer.

For devs' it is good : each time we change some files, Steam will update them.

A good decision. Paying for mod (I mean, being forced to pay, I'm absolutely not against donations system) is (I think) against right properties and against the only idea of modding.
I hope all great mods creators will always keep their mods free, and just propose donations.

By taking this decision, I want to tell you that you're making a great choice for the community, and for modding future.

You're great, guys, really.

Zut ! Comment avez-vous deviné que j'étais français ! ^^
Il va falloir que je travaille mon anglais pour qu'il soit plus authentique....
Bon je dois dire qu'en lisant un article en anglais c'était un réflexe de répondre en anglais, mais je n'oublie pas les talents des moddeurs français sur ce mod français !

Je suis heureux que Valve ait finalement abandonné les mods payants pour le moment et je vous soutiens plus que jamais.

C'est le « only » dans « only idea of modding » qui m'a mis la puce à l'oreille (ça ne se voit pas vraiment en anglais mais en français, si). Du coup je suis allé vérifier sur votre compte ^^

En tout cas merci, ça fait plaisir ! :)

I hope you guys do release it on the Skyrim Nexus I don't use the steam work shop due to me using Mod organizer and its profiles for my mods.
