Yeah, people not getting paid for modding is a problem. But, then when Steam and Bethesda talk about taking 70-75% of the cut from the people who actually did all the work and effort creating mods, that too is a "bug in the system". If you want to skim a little off the top, fine. This is not skimming, it is highway robbery.

Former modder here. Money is nice, but I got a bigger kick out of seeing people actually using my mod than receiving $10 a month.

I agree, and from that perspective it just makes Valve look like they're just using content creators to make people feel guilty enough to adopt the paid mod system.

Seems fair to me.

People not being paid for mods is a “bug in the system”, says Valve boss Gabe Newell | PCGamesN

'Remember when Valve introduced paid mods to Skyrim via Steam?'

'We’ve got a list of the best Skyrim mods if you wanna get ‘em while they’re free. '

'The comparison was made to a hot stove, which they’re not keen to burn their hands on again just yet. '

'More success stories leads to more modders, which leads to more mods. '

'Remember how everyone went mental and Valve pulled the idea?'
