Just throwing some thoughts out there, is there such a thing already as a program which can pull Steam workshop content without Steam? I’m just thinking of the constant requests for GOG versions of STC here. Coupling this with a pre-existing mod manager would be an effective solution to their mod access.
For context, there’s no one on the STC team with the GOG version of HWRM and maintaining two release channels will become very arduous on a small team that’s essentially hobbyists. Especially when you can’t test the released product… I’m keen to do a GOG version once we run out of steam (ha!) with our updates but until then I’ve just been singing that tune
