    @lukasros Oh, it's just fun to be able to create a website with an API call. I'm kinda scared of the idea of making websites so carelessly, but it could be fun, too. Thinking meme origins.

      @kyleisom Lots of programming, walking in the neighborhood, and a LAN Saturday.

        Haha! An opportunity to be a donkey.

          @axodys I've been going at it since November, fwiw. Ha.

            @axodys Oh young one... 5570th post with broadsword.io/go. :P

              @echodunk That has always been the case.

                @echodunk Valve is offering to middleman with publishers so mod makers can be paid for mods. How is anything you're talking about different from if Valve didn't?
                33mhz
                  @echodunk Right... that's just proving it to Valve, AFAICT. You don't have to go to court unless you can't prove it.

                    @echodunk You can take things off Steam... Where are you talking about?
                    33mhz
                      @echodunk You don't need a DMCA to take content down from Steam. You just have to prove to Steam that it's yours. Devs would be fools not to have proof anyway, and could always be a problem.

                        @echodunk If a mod maker didn't want something up, they can have it taken down. Like I said, the implementation can change, but I don't have a problem with the concept.

                          @thedoctor Oh sure. It's a well-made game, I suppose. I dislike the annual replacement, and the DLC management, pay to win feeling, etc. @echodunk
                          33mhz
                            @echodunk ? What content would they repack? Where would it be that they would put it somewhere else?
                            33mhz
                              @echodunk Sure, if they make something worth building on, and if the turks want to. It directs games to be built basically as a framework. You would then provide the framework for a modder to build good content within.

                                @echodunk Previously any studio or dev could remake a mod as a full game if they wanted, or remake a mod as a mod, or anything of the sort. There's no more reason now to do it than previously.

                                  @echodunk From Bethesda's side, yes, sure, they said yes to Valve because what do they care? But for indies, this means a place to work when you can't or haven't gotten out from under an existing game. You can play in the little leagues until you get a hit

                                    @echodunk Destiny. Games are content mills. Big pubs don't want to commit anymore, just like movie studios. They're turning toward games that last for half a decade or more (and by last, I mean they're consumable, and temporary, replaced by the next CoD).

                                      @echodunk Two games that dominate their genres, support modding, and are disasters.
