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.
