Modders are now allowed to list their creations through the Steam Workshop to earn them money. Mod sales with Skyrim will be released "in the upcoming weeks" according to Steam. This will be a good way for modders to make money.
Here is the statement Steam released:
"We think this is a great opportunity to help support the incredible creative work being done by mod makers in the Steam Workshop," said Valve's Tom Bui, adding that user-generated content (UGC) is increasingly a "significant component" of many Steam games. Valve believes that adding financial incentives for modders will "help drive the level of UGC to new heights."
