I'm a learning Digital Artist, who uses GIMP as my primary editing program.

Give me a Llama and I'll give one back! (And usually I'll fav-spam your gallery and watch too! ^U^)

Please, don't tag me on anything. I appreciate the sentiment, but I'm fairly lazy & find myself often being distracted by other things, and I usually don't get around to it, even if I want to.

NOTE: if you wanna talk serious about any story, let's talk about that story. if you wanna talk about FanFiction, we'll talk about FanFiction. All I ask is that you not bring FanFiction into the serious story talk, and I won't do the same. ;)

Favourite style of art: Manga/Anime. Although, does computer re-drawing a picture count as a different art style?
Operating System: This computer comes with Win7. WOW, I really needed to update this...
MP3 player of choice: A Walkman.
Personal Quote: "In which state was the Kolndike Bar-- I mean Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890's?"

Steam Removes Paid Mods!

We understand our own game's communities pretty well, but stepping into an established, years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating. We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly, even though we believe there's a useful feature somewhere here.

Bold is my emphasis.

So what does this mean?

For Dovah's Mind... *SIGH* Now I'm just waiting on my voice to get to a point! I'll be doing one episode this week, but I think next week I'll be moving along back to the M/W/F schedule.

For Steam Workshop, I think the best option they can add instead is a Donate Button, or a Commission Author feature.  One of my friends isn't happy about this at all, though. :/

Sigh. To all the people who feel this way, I just have to say that the way that this whole situation unfolded was a complete mess. Valve and Bethesda first and foremost unleashed this without giving the masses time to react beforehand. It was dropped into our laps like a hot apple pie that someone had already taken the opportunity to dig a trench in before hand with their fingers. What were we supposed to do but yell and flail to the sudden action and rage against the person/people who had done the trench digging as well as the dropping?

Paid Modding CAN have it's pros to match the cons, as my angered friend has mentioned to me, however the real issue that happened was basically... It was a new system being forced into a world that had already achieved equilibrium with itself. It caused an imbalance. Had any of this paid modding featuring been introduced with- say- Fallout 4 or Elder Scrolls 6? The reaction would have been much less severe. It would have been something new introduced with something new.

We can sort of look at this like Skyrim Modding itself. What essentially happened here was a Mod Conflict. We installed a Mod that appeared to look like it would work with an existing mod, but it changed the internal structure of the game, that was ALREADY being changed by another mod. So, we had to remove one mod or another, to choose what version of the game we wanted to run. Some people chose to remove the old file, and in the case of the majority here, removed the new file that caused the conflict.

It's a sad thing, but it happens when co-operation fails to occur. Now, we can either work to re-build the new mod to work alongside the old mod, or we can make something newer that the conflicting mod DOES work with. *Shrugs*

Just a half-thrown together analogy, really, but it kinda works for the situation.
