Uploading a Mod to Steam
I have a question about uploading a mod to the Steam workshop: After the upload, will I be able to edit the description? Will I be able to upload additional images for the mod?

I take it from there being no comments, no one knows (I don't)

I don't know from experience, but lots of the mods on there have multiple version notes and other things which make it look as though they've been edited, can't see any reason why not, tbh!

when you first upload it, you can go to the mod page, and you'll see a few tools to the panel to the right for 'edit title & description' and 'add videos or images' so you can edit it however you want once it's been published. it's just a matter of fighting CK and steam error 16 like i did for the first week of uploading like i did lol

Thanks, both. There's a small text box to type a description when uploading. Not sure if modders put the full description, there, or add it later. Maybe someone else will know.

Thanks, much ZeroMaveric! Have you posted many mods? If so, I should try them and maybe give them a thumbs up. :)

nah, that's the only mod i've published so far. i have another on the way, but need to get a reply from someone on nexus about fixing it first. *grumbles* stupid crossbow bug

I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks again.

If you want to make amendments to your uploaded Plug-in, you can do. Simply repeat the ''upload plugin and archive to steam'' process again and creation kit will overwrite your recent plugin with your ammended one. Just bear in mind, however, that Steam will update it and synch with everyone who has subscribed to your item, and if they have automatic updates active on their client. (I am not sure if it updates without Auto-update on, it still might).

Anyway, as has already been mentioned, when you upload a mod to the workshop, you will be able to upload images (in much the same fashion as your avatar image is uploaded) and type a lengthy description.
Remember to mention if your mod requires any additional DLC!;- meaning, if you used any DLC items in your mod, anyone subbing will require that DLC installed on their system in order to run your mod, otherwise it will crash their game if they do not know.

You can access your workshop items easily by looking at your profile list; you will notice 'workshop items' amongst 'screenshots' and 'badges' the right, above your mini-friends list. Once you reach level 20 (or 25, can't remember) you will unlock the ability to display a showcase on your profile, showing off your workshop submissions! :D

Best of luck!

Thank you, Master. Please allow me to ask another question: I did not select any DLC when making my mod. I did, however select Update.esm and Skyrim.esm. Will selecting Update.esm create any issues for some users, or is it safe to say they will all have the update file?
Everyone has that, you're ok :)
