Message to the community regarding steam workshop.

As most of you have probably found out by now, CoH now requires Steam in order to play. A side effect of this change is some difficulties in the manual installation of mods.

Thus I am writing this to ask you, as gamers, to help us modders gain access to Steam Workshop as a distribution system. This would not only make it easier for you to stay up to date with mods as they are updated, but also make it easier for us as modders to release updates and content.

If this goes through I will finally have a way of distributing Alpha stage content to you guys, and I will have the motivation to start publishing content on a regular basis. At present I am prepared to put the IJA Alpha stage on the Workshop the moment it gets approved.

Get signing guys, your support is greatly appreciated.

I signed it too.

Have you considered uploading the alpha stage here too? Getting a Steam Workshop might take quite some time and if you are ready to upload already, then why not do it? This is one of the most interesting mods, in my opinion, I'm sure you could attract quite a bit of attention that way.

I've been trying to find a way of making it available to the public that will allow me to update easily and regularly without people having to do it manually every time I make a change or fix something. So far I've looked at the likes of DropBox, SugarSync, etc, but I'm yet to find something that does what I want that is either free, or doesn't require me to send everyone who wants to play an invite manually via email.

So if you have any ideas for something I may have missed let me know. Otherwise the closest I can find to what I want requires people to do everything on their end, and anyone coming along new to the mod would need to download the original mod files, and then patch in order of release.

still hope that maybe in the future there will be something which is not only quiet ocean front, but also the Chinese front. Chinese Japanese war 1939 - '45.
