Valve Expands Workshop Compensation For Users

by Rainier on June 27, 2013 @ 1:20 p.m. PDT

Valve's Steam Workshop now lets item creators compensate toolmakers, communities, and mentors who have helped them make their items in the first place.

Since the Steam Workshop launched in October of 2011, over 1,200 items created by members of the community have been made available for sale in Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2, producing over $10 million in royalties paid to item creators.

Starting today, item creators in Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 Workshops may choose from a selection of toolmakers, communities, and mentors and allocate a percentage of revenues from in-game item sales to the those who aided in the items' creation.

The contribution will be made from a set percentage that is redirected from Valve to the toolmakers, not taken from the item creator's royalty.
