GOM (Good Old Mods)

As some games start to age a bit more, especially ones with a good modding community and classic mods, sites that host a lot of them starts to close down or die (Ex. Neverwinter Nights). It would be nice to have a place within the same community that would help preserve some of the better mods and even encourage some new ones. GOM could be a sister-site for GOG that would be a more reliable and stable archive for some of our favorite mods.

I'd like this implemented into GOG Galaxy like how Steam handles Workshops.

As someone who played Midtown Madness 2 and Monster Truck Madness 1 and 2, I disagree with the example of the Steam Workshop. MM2 runs the mods by dumping the zip folder itself onto the root of the game and it becomes a pain when you have to look for a file to configure or delete a conflicting mod. MTM1 and MTM2 on the other hand have the case of you being able to download but it won't run right out of the bat. You gotta operate a program called PODINI to activate the POD files, and even then the game breaks if you go above a certain number of files.

There are many good reasons for gog to provide mod downloads in some form. Modding is a big part of PC gaming and particularly crucial when playing old games. Having some available in gog should help with older mods that might stop being available somewhere else. <br /> <br /> That said, personally, I mostly want steamworks to stop being an excuse for developers to release only through steam.

If there's a mod place inside the good old games spot, it'd work. but fuck the idea of making it a separate service.

I'd more likely want something as the current 'Steam workshop', so modders or supporters are able to present mods. Any GOM system will require authority to decide which mod to preserve...

I think this is best "managed" by the community and at most facilitated by GOG. For example, perhaps each game's discussion forum should have a stickied thread that is solely for the discussion/organization/preservation of mods for that game, but that's about it. Taking on the liability/responsibility related to ensuring mods don't break games or contain malware alone makes this an impossibility for GOG to do internally.

I definitely want downloadable mod support, but with changes. I think that when you download a mod to a game, it should tell you where it installed to and then you can edit it yourself, so mods can still work without being connected to GOG, this is non DRM after all... <br /> <br /> GOM should be integrated into GOG, and you should be able to download mod manager things kinda like Nexus.

It's a bad idea. Mostly due to mess with IP rights. And no - it wouldn't be the same thing as Steam Workshop - in Workshop it's the authors that upload their own mods currently in development. What OP proposes is "**community** that would help preserve some of the better mods". It's an awful idea that never should be implemented.

I don't believe this is a smart idea. I'd rather have some way for users to link mods to the games.

I'm still reeling from the Steam Workshop paid mods debacle. I certainly don't want to see a repeat of that on GOG. Leave our mods alone!

Whilst I do appreciate mods, this doesn't make sense. Mods are created by individuals, or sometimes groups. Generally not professionally. So your saying that GOG should put time and effort into getting these, maintaining them and supporting them, all for zero money? <br /> If you want mods, then use moddb, nexus plus the host of other repositories. GOG is far better to use limited resources to bring in more games.

This makes me think of a "mod spotlight" type feature. If executed correctly this will have a lot of potential. <br /> <br /> Also having widescreen and compatibility patches/fixes/mods somewhere where those are easily found would be great.

Steam already has workshop, but this could be way better.

Hmm... <br /> Your request really has me appreciating the possibilities! <br /> I am not sure of the employee workload but if the beginning of this project could fit into the existing workloads for archiving older and existing games on GOG that have popular mods then I encourage GOG to give it a go! <br /> If it grows and increases revenues or simply is popular with the staff and employees then continue to explore it as a goal to increase market niche and membership base. <br /> I am convinced that future gaming success will come from mods and fan based gamers rather than the large corporate producers. <br /> <br /> Then my imagination kicks in and my vision explores old games getting a full facelift and new stories with new music, voice acting, and graphics and my excitement expands as I see myself playing old lost favorites competing with the latest games from bad corp. giants such as EA and SONY. <br /> <br /> Shucks, even a group of game-modders could pitch their mods and us the profits to fund their game startup or even breath new life into the aging mmo servers... <br /> Sounds too far fetched? <br /> Who knows what small company will become the next mega-success franchise by doing the unusual and connecting with the innovative and entrepreneurial fans? <br /> Isn't that the opposite of what the monopolistic DRM-Hollywood-mega banks-Wall Street drones does? <br /> Putting an end to the DRM-copyright-intelletual property perpetual ownership of everything and zombification of fans and customers is what I see coming from groups of successful entrepreneurs that embrace FSF, GNU, P2P, and freedom. <br /> <br /> That certainly is one of my wishes.

Agree, It could be something like "essential mods" in your game download section were all artworks, avatars and other stuff are available for us. Those mods extend games life circle, so GOG - you should support them a bit more here.

TechSmurfy: But you get to Nexusmods from the first result from Google, or is it missing files and certain mods as well? I haven't even started adding mods to Morrowind yet, so I wouldn't know. Having just modded Oblivion from Nexusmods, which seemed to work perfectly 1-2 years ago at least. <br /> <br /> But I have a feature request which would cover this to a certain extent: user-added links on game pages, which you can vote on. <br /> It's called "A vote for voting on user-added external links on product pages!"

I agree. Games like Morrowind come to mind. Literally thousands of mods are now impossible to find because original hosts and hubs have died (IGN, GameSpy I'm looking at you). It would be great to have a place for them. On the other hand there are sites like <a href="http://moddb.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">moddb.com</a> and I can't see how Good Old Mods would be profitable for GOG.com, but nevertheless it's a neat idea.
