PCDev just confirmed that steam workshop will be the only platform we can upload maps to, but we can still share the link to the workshop page on here.

If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

We should be able to integrate UGX Launcher into the steam API to subscribe you to the mods but still allow you to use the UGX Launcher to browse them all, which should provide a much more positive experience.

Also users should be able to neglect to upload to steam workshop altogether and just upload here like we did with WaW.

Uploading to steam workshop is one of the best thing that can happen to a modding community tho, just look at zombiemodding nowadays. You cant even download any of the older maps :(

The hosting is great, it's just workshop itself that sucks. Which is what we aim to improve :)

Shoot I love the Steam workshop. I have friends who don't know how to use a computer and go crazy on me when then have to move a map to their mod's folder or run an exe. Lol They like to be able to click the big green subscribe button and start playing. Adding BO3 maps to the workshop will make my life so much easier. Maybe now my friends will play custom zombies more.  :D

Just remember we are in the minority. We are mappers and modders whereas the majority of people are just players. They just want to play the maps and usually don't have technical knowledge about computers. If I said go to your AppData/CodWaw/mods folder they would scratch there head and say WTF? lol Nothing wrong with that either I'm just saying the most user friendly and fastest delivery of content to players in my experience has been the Steam workshop. I've used it on Ark, L4D2, Gmod, Don't Starve Together, and many more. Seems fine to me. No problems so far and I've played games for years.

let's just hope the upload limit is not too low... not sure how big these bo3 maps can get but I imagine the raised limits will allow much more space to be used. Shit, tons of WaW maps can go well over half a gig...

So I'm guessing the download button on this forum can be used to link to the steam workshop.

However we are allowed to act as if this was a map release on UGX?

I personally don't have a problem with steam workshop and as previously mentioned, it is easier to use. I just hope it is structured in such a way where maps aren't cluttered (basically crap maps get less prevalence than more high-quality maps).

I'm kinda not sure what files would be necessary for an upload (just take the CoDBO3/maps/mapname folder in appdata and upload it to the steam workshop? idk)

This could have a negative effect on the UGX website unless steam has an unlisted(?) section where only a person can be given a link in order to download it. This means you can only access certain maps directly from the UGX website.

I am quite clueless about BO3 modding/mapping as of now. Still waiting for those damn tools XD

IMO Steam Workshop is the best we could hope for, not some third party app that divides everyone and requires extra steps, etc...

Since it is Steam however some third party app might still be usable, best of both world in this case.

You can probably just put the mods in some folder like waw. He didnt even say it was steam workshop only, he said they they will be using the workshop but never outright denied you could use other ways to distribute maps.
