The New Steam Workshop
The New Steam Workshop
The Steam Workshop has always been a great place for sharing mods, maps, and all kinds of items that you’ve created. Now it’s also a great place for selling those creations. With a new, streamlined process for listing and selling your creations, the Steam Workshop now supports buying mods directly from the Workshop, to be immediately usable in game. Discover the best new mods for your game and enable the creators to continue making new items and experiences.
Starting With Skyrim
Bethesda Game Studios has a history of providing strong support for user modifications in their games. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has continued that tradition, adding a comprehensive editor and integration with the Steam Workshop back in 2012. There are now well over 24,000 free mods available for Skyrim via the Steam Workshop, adding everything from new soundscapes to epic multi-hour quests, to tweaks that perfect the reflections on water. With the launch of paid mods in Skyrim, you can now support mod authors that are creating top quality items and amazing new experiences for your game.
Calling all Creators
Earn money doing what you love
- Set your own price – As creator of your Workshop submission, you get to set the price. You can specify a set price or choose to sell as pay-what-you-want and let the customer decide how much to pay.
- Add contributors – If you work as a team, you can easily add your teammates as contributors to automatically recieve a split of revenue. Steam takes care of the necessary accounting, tax witholding, and payouts.
- Specify Required DLC – Whether your creation is free or paid, you may depend on content from a DLC pack for Skyrim. Now you can indicate the requirement and customers will be notified if they lack required DLC before they purchase or subscribe to your item.
- Specify Required mods – If your creation builds on another mod or utilizes content from another mod, you should first ask their permission. Once you’ve done that, you can note the requirement on your Workshop page so customers can be notified if they lack the required mod before purchase.
