Sharing is caring, right? We’ll see how much Steam Workshop contributors learned from their preschool purple dinosaur friend thanks to Valve’s latest update. Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 content creators can now use nifty sliders to give a portion of the item revenue to various communities and individuals.
When submitting an item to the Team Fortress 2 or Dota 2 Workshop, item creators can select from a list of companies, organizations, or individuals to receive a portion of revenue from that item’s sales.
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.
If you purchased anything from the Humble Bundle store, then you’ve got a good idea of how the new Workshop sliders work. It’s almost like a minigame on its own! Should these guys get this much or less? Should I scooch the slider to the right a wee bit more?
Suggestions for additions to the compensation lists can be given to Valve for consideration via the official discussion boards.
