Hello, I'm hoping to get a response from the developers on this topic. I have created a couple of pretty popular character mods for the workshop (Whandler and more recently Wynn). https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=392369197 - Whandler https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=479169756 - Wynn I've enjoyed making these mods for the community, and I'm proud of my work. But creating content like this takes a huge amount of time and effort. So I figured maybe I could make some money with my hard work if I offered commissioned Don't Starve characters for those who were interested. Thus, I decided to offer Don't Starve character commissions on my website, which can be found here- http://www.sageoflegend.com/commissions/ This initially seemed like a pretty harmless endeavor to me. Offering custom characters for people who A) want them and B) can afford to pay for my time and expertise (I wouldn't fall into that latter category myself). I'd seen some other mods on the DS workshop that were clearly commissioned before, so I figured why not? What I overlooked were the conflicts with the Steam Workshop Subscriber Agreement, which commenters swiftly brought to my attention. Since I can't technically use the developer tools or workshop for commercial purposes, I figured I'd still be fine to sell people assets outside of Steam for use in creating their own mods. I can sell images and code to whoever I want on my own website, right? That seems reasonable to me, but one gate remains: I would like to know how Klei feels about commissioned content like this. While I believe that my time and skills are worth paying for and that I'm bringing quality content to the workshop (which in turn brings value to the game), at the end of the day I would be making money off of Klei's game. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for this company, so if Klei takes issue with commissioned assets like this I will simply pull the plug on it. But rather than continuing to assume anything, I'm asking: What is your official status on commissioned mod content, Klei? Thank you for your time and attention, Eric "Sage" Chandler
