Valve has paid out over ten million dollars to Steam Workshop contributors
Valve hit a new landmark over the weekend, related to Team Fortress 2 and the Steam Workshop. According to the developer, it has now paid out over ten milliion dollars to its 400 contributors and partners. Nearly $250,000 of that has gone to the sixty-odd people who were responsible for creating the Robotic Boogaloo update.
Perhaps in celebration of this milestone, Valve has improved the tools contributors will use when constructing content for the Workshop. The platform now automatically tests creations against a set of standards, and displays how an item will render on characters in-game. Even better, all items submitted through the TF2 Workshop tool will automatically be tagged to ship automatically with the next update.
Pretty sweet, right? Best get cracking - Valve seems pretty intent on having someone cobble together a beard of bees.
