I'm neither. I made a thread asking some crucial questions which as-per-usual no one from SD responded to. Which is not a jibe at them, its fine, that is very normal. Point is, I just haven't heard any answers.
So I'm pretty in the dark.
Hopefully, I can share the races on Steam, but then offer a "supplement" pack as a mod on Nexus for changes to Mercs, additional color schemes, home systems and more.
Worst case, the new race creator will let me make races faster/easier, with custom dialogue easier, but the mod will remain a non-steam supplies mod... but I fear that will lead to GRM falling into obscurity as people download multitudes of races from Steam and ignore GRM because of the added effort of installing.
So I guess in that case, I'll offer the races on Steam in "lite" versions, to get people "hooked" and maybe lure them into the full GRM package.
Or ya know... SD could just support full mods on Steam. That would be a big surprise and fix everything (for me lol).
