I quite like this idea tbh, hopefully it improves quality.
Interesting, I've generally found Mods in the most part to be of a decent quality, end of the day they are usually written by fellow gamers for there own love of games. If anything I see it causing people to rip of others Mods and try and charge for them. I mean take a look at the "Mod" pack they've already got up for Skyrim £18.76 for a 17 mods of which some are just weapons..... I mean christ the you can get the Game + DLC for less than that......
i dont see a problem with any of it per se, paying modders who work hard is awesome.
not to mention the 24 hour refund, in which time you can complete any mod and decide whether its worth paying for.
so its not a built in donate system which i would prefer tbh
As mentioned I agree some do deserve payment (BUT as you say via donations not forced) due to the awesomeness they provide, but the 24hr's concerns me. Do you play 24hrs straight at a time? ie your basically getting a few hours to test a Mod to its FULL extent, for some thats easy (extra weapon etc) but what about the larger ones such as Viking Conquest for Mount & Blade (Which would have been released this way if avaliable) and was a buggy disaster!
And as you put it Greenlight for all the good that should have come from it has just seen quality take a nose dive! One in probably 100 games out of it are any use now.
Heres something I stole from another forum:-
-Pay for mod
-start game up, mod works fine
-update released for mod
-Breaks compatibility due to other mods installed
-can't get a refund due to the 24 hour limit
