So right after the launch of 2.1, I asked my Producer what it would take to get some ‘Mod author’ maps in to our base build - Maybe a ‘best of’ selection (with full credit, etc). Something to encourage more people to try them out, look up their other work on the Workshop, etc.
So - a few questions/thoughts:
- First, at the moment this is entirely just an idea - there’s no real intent here other than to see what people think.
- Second, obviously, anyone who’s work would be published like this would be given full credit, be contacted directly, and have to sign a release for the specific work in question.
- Third, only ‘simple’ maps would work - nothing with crazy scripts or extra tie-ins. Why? Because once we bring things ‘in house’ we need to understand and be able to test them, including any future updates… simple is best in that case. Some ‘basic’ logic would be fine though.
- Fourth, the map names need to be translated into every language we support - either via community members, or our own services.
What does everyone else think?
