Valve Pulls the Plug On Paid Mods For Skyrim

Date: Tue, 28. April 2015 04:04:05
westlake writes: Valve has abandoned its attempt to introduce paid mods to Skyrim on Steamworks, following furious and unrelenting complaints by the gaming community that did not spare Gabe Newell. Valve said, "[O]ur main goals were to allow mod makers the opportunity to work on their mods full time if they wanted to, and to encourage developers to provide better support to their mod communities. We thought this would result in better mods for everyone, both free & paid." Bethesda had similar goals, saying, "There are certainly other ways of supporting modders, through donations and other options. We are in favor of all of them. One doesn't replace another, and we want the choice to be the community’s. Yet, in just one day, a popular mod developer made more on the Skyrim paid workshop than he made in all the years he asked for donations." Read more of this story at Slashdot.

The FBI paid more than $1 million to hack the San Bernardino iPhone

Date: Thu, 21. April 2016 16:34:00
In the San Bernardino case, it turned out that the FBI didn?t actually need Apple?s help to access the data in shooter Syed Rizwan Farook?s iPhone 5c. But if Apple had helped, it certainly would have been cheaper. Speaking at a security conference in London, FBI Director James Comey was asked how much the bureau paid the third-party gray-hat hackers for the tool that broke into the iPhone. ?A lot, more than I will make in the remainder of this job, which is seven years and four months, for sure. But it was in my view worth it.?To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

North Korea took 70 percent of Kaesong wages for weapons program: South Korea

Date: Sat, 13. February 2016 22:47:48
South Korea said 70 percent of the U.S. dollars paid as wages and fees for the suspended Kaesong industrial project, run jointly with the North, had been diverted for Pyongyang's weapons program and luxury goods for leader Kim Jong Un. It is the first formal acknowledgement by the South that the 55,000 North Korean workers at the Kaesong complex saw little of the $160 they were paid on average a month. South Korea on Wednesday suspended the project as punishment for the North's long-range rocket launch on Feb. 7 saying it would no longer allow the funds paid to Kaesong to be used in the North's missile and nuclear programs.

'No Plans' For Paid Mods In 'Fallout 4'

Date: Fri, 19. June 2015 13:56:00
Don't expect paid mods for Bethesda's new Fallout 4 anytime soon. The developer may have tried to work with Valve to implement a system where users would be able to pay money for certain user-created mods for Skyrim, but the whole thing crashed and burned in about a day. While Valve's response to the situation very much indicated that the company would be game to try again, Bethesda doesn't seem like they're all that enthusiastic. An interview with Fallout 4 director Todd Howard from Der Spiegel (via Kotaku) says that the company has "no plans" to implement paid mods into Fallout 4.
