CURSE NEXUS! They get all the good stuff! And some of the bad, but that's beside the point... Thanks for telling me, sorry I flipped out, I just have bad experience with Nexus... I'm going to Nexus and ask the author to put FrostFall back on Steam, it seems I'm the only one doing things like this.

thanks. it seems stupid for him to take it down, it was working fine.

I think it got too big for Steam's file size limit. And I guess that Chesko could not, in good conscience, leave Frostfall up on Steam because he could no longer update it, and he didn't want to leave a dead-mod up.

There was NO reason to update. Then again, I am no modder. I'll go see what went wrong.

This is why I prefer Nexus over Workshop. I have control of all my mods.
There's always a reason to update. A mod that needs to update and does so is one made by a conscientious modder! :)

Nexus is fine, just behave yourself and learn to use the Mod manager properly and you won't have a problem, Frostfall is soooo worth it :)

Thats not for you to state. It's his mod. He will tell you when it's finished.

I see more and more good mods leaving Steam because of the size limitations.
It forced my to use Nexus, NMM, BOSS, TES5edit, Wrye Bash and my game is running better because of it.
Chesko already made a statement on the STEAM WOrkshop page before it was pulled.

Frostfall will be permanently removed from Steam Workshop as of Friday, September 20th, 2013.

There seems to be an ongoing issue for me on Steam Workshop in a way that doesn't repeat itself on other places that I host, such as Skyrim Nexus, and it's been going on for several months now. Specifically, users not reading the carefully-provided documentation, a general lack of respect, and (as of late) personal attacks (see comment below). Basically, I no longer need to live a life where I fear clicking the little green message icon in Steam because I know it's going to be some form of abuse.

I mod for recreation, and modding is no longer fun when people can't act civil (warning: censored adult language). That's just one example. Yes, I could delete the comment, but quite honestly I'm getting tired of having no moderation occurring at this hosting location and being responsible for policing my own boards. It would be another matter entirely if I actually had the power to moderate such as block certain users from commenting, turn off comments entirely, comment approval, but I have none of those tools available to me on the Workshop.

I think that Steam Workshop is a fine place to host smaller, more easily-consumable mods which don't require user participation in the form of community interaction and documentation, but for something as expansive as Frostfall, I've decided that it's no longer a good fit.

I am a bit worried about putting up to 44,634 individuals that currently subscribe to this file through a bit of trouble, but it is what it is, and I have to do what is best for my own well-being. If you fall in this category, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Frostfall will be removed from the Workshop on Friday, September 20th, 2013. Please transition to the Skyrim Nexus version (which can be upgraded to from the Workshop version, please follow instructions). Thank you for your support for the file on the Workshop and your understanding.

I will evaluate my other mods for inclusion to the Workshop on a case-by-case basis. Wearable Lanterns 3.0 will probably not come to the Workshop, nor will Arissa. Some of my more trivial mods will remain, such as 418th Step, Belt Fastened Quivers, and other mods that do not involve scripting (which requires some user participation in order to use the included shutdown procedures).

Chesko is talking about ppl like this:

I do agree, Workshop does have it's share of immature runts and bullies.
There needs to be better tools so Mod Authors on the Workshop can ban person from posting/subscribing to their mods.

On the Nexus, even acting like the above person would get you banned; they have a zero tolertence policy [I believe they IP ban you so you can't just remake another account].

I see it happen enough were a modder gets♥♥♥♥♥♥thrown at him because some nitwit thought it was a good idea too kill his own savegames.

Tip of the day: Play the game on a console. It's better suited for you.
I think Chesko handled that remark with sterling composure....whadda guy :)

The best mod ever!

Chesko is right as are the other comments. It is disgusting that gamers get these mods for free, do not read the instructions and then abuse the author because they messed up their game. It is our resposibility as mod users to make sure we read the instructions for installing and uninstalling mods correctly. That is why I prefer Nexus for large mods using NMM because the installationg program takes care of where and how files are installed and when you uninstall you can do it through the same program.
I give thanks to Chesko and other mod makers for taking the time and effort to provide us with a such marvellous add-ons to our game!
I too Like Frostfall on Steam it's faster to load up. I hope Frostfall do come -back to Steam. Thanks
