No can do, since I don't actually own the game on Steam.
Besides, I'd prefer not to contribute to Valve's closed ecosystem. Were Steam open source and DRM-free, I'd be all for it.

Double thumbs up for this, and a hug (I assume you don't mind).  8)

Also, super useful mod, thanks for creating/maintaining it. I like to explore the vanilla experience of new alphas for a bit... and this is always the mod that I miss most extensively when I do. Sure seems like a thing that should be in core.

Thank you for the support, BlueWinds. Gotta do what feels right, even when the odds are stacked the other way.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by "closed ecosystem".

Slye, it means Valve fully controls their game and mod delivery system. Meaning, they are profiting off of your content and can take it down without warning. They also control how you use their client, and are free to add whatever "feature" they deem necessary, rather than giving their players the choice in the matter.
Conversely, an "open" ecosystem would entail them allowing players to use alternative clients and alternative mod repositories (which they would not control). It can be done, and the PC gaming market would probably benefit from it as a whole. Of course, Valve would have to voluntarily yield some of their control in the service of their users- which is a lot to ask of a corporation.
On the bright side, Steam gives indie developers a viable distribution platform that is not very demanding, allowing innovative games to appear. We definitely have that going for us, which is nice.

jonbrant, yes, you could put it that way :D

Just to let you know, someone has uploaded your mod to the Steam Workshop: https://steamcommunity.com/linkfilter/?url=https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=17218.0

Well, the license puts this mod in the public domain, so they are within their rights.
If I do end up getting the game on Steam, I might make an official release.
Thanks for letting me know :)

Regarding my previous rant about Steam and DRM- I am not expressly opposed to having the mod on the workshop. If people want to play the game on Steam, I'm not going to stand in their way.
As long as the mod is also available openly and for free, it's all good.
