I am currently creating a place where you can download mods. This is most likely a last option to download mods but I think this could be a great idea.

The site will include following:
  • Mods of the Month
  • Newest mods (will update everytime a new mod is coming)
  • Guides
               
    • How to mod (I imagine I will make it a bit different than the wiki)
    • How to install mod
    • Other user friendly guides to the game
           
  • Upload page (works via a form you sign)
  • Mod list
   

Hopefully more will come, so this is a quite big project for me and I there will be some support :) I know many disagree and this doesn't seem like a good idea since we have the forum and steam workshop, but I am going give it a try.

I think it's a great Idea.
But there's a question for you: how will the downloads work?
I don't know how will you that, maybe use the standard download links (GitHub, Mediafire,...) or you wanting to do something else?


Still great Idea :)


Maybe do a poll?

Options I can do:
  • Let it download directly from my site, only bad thing is it can fill up my storage
  • Whatever download link mod author uses, multiple DL links is acceptable

Oh and for uploading mod, I cannot make it so you can register and upload etc. what I will do is add a contact e-mail give some instruction and let people send me their info about mod.

Mate, a login/register system would be damn easy to code in Meteor for example.  Want me to GitHub you a moddb style CMS/user system in Meteor in like... idk, 4 hours?

But please wait, I would not like you take make something that might not be used

And it's most likely not gonna be used since I am not sure if I want people to be putting their mods up themselves and I am not sure what I would be using it for tbh. other than commenting and publishing mods on the page.

It's more a question of how far khornel wants to take Workshop integration.  normally you only subscribe to mods, and they "just work" (thus no need for a third party mod site.)

The biggest reason I want to do this is to create something and learn and get better. It's not really for advertisement or anything. Just an alternative thing to have a list of mod, which I had thought of.

I don't know, you could ask a lot of mod sites that question.
