Releasing TTW mods

Post by Nomumbra » Sat Aug 17, 2019 8:49 pm

I've converted a couple of my FO3 mods to TTW 3.2.2, tested them out and want to release them.
What do most people do?
Add the file to their FO3 Nexus mod page, add it to the NV Nexus as a new mod designated as TTW, or is there another place for TTW mods?

People usually upload TTW mods in one of two ways:
On the FNV nexus saying that it's a mod for TTW and then make a thread here on teh forums linking to their FNV Nexus page (but don't link to us, Nexus does not want links to us because Bethesda might get angry at the Nexus).
Or upload the mods on file sharing sites (like google drive) or other hosting sites and then link the download on a thread dedicated to the mod here on the forum.


Don't upload TTW mods in the FO3 Nexus, since it's not mods for FO3, it will create confusion for users. You can post your TTW mods in FNV nexus and then link them in your FO3 Nexus mod pages (something like "TTW version available on the FNV Nexus" with a link) and vice versa.

Concise answer covering all the bases.

Thanks so much Risewild.

I thought nexus was fine with linking to TTW now. They even auto recognize the outside dependency of TTW when going through the mod publishing process. Most TTW mods on nexus link back to the TTW that I've seen, and I've never seen one remove those links. TTW has done everything they can to prevent piracy, so Bethesda shouldn't have an issue with it.

Bethesda personally asked Nexus to not host TTW in the past, and we're still not allowed to host it there in the present date.

Mods that link to TTW might just not have been noticed by the Staff, for example, since Nexus relies on people reporting mods. Maybe no one reported it yet or something.

If anyone directly links TTW on the Nexus, they do it at their own risk of getting the mod taken down or a ban. I personally wouldn't risk it.

I can't imagine being the kind of person who'd report a mod for that reason

Yeah, be very careful not to piss anyone off over at the nexus - they can be vicious. I just keep my head down and don't rock the boat.

So if the Nexus can't host TTW compatible mods, where do we find them?

The Nexus can host TTW compatible mods and mods made for TTW. They just don't host TTW itself. They also don't like (at least in the past) people to directly link to this site (the TTW site).

They have no problems with uploaders saying the mod is for TTW (ex: This mod is only for TTW) or even post TTW on the mod title (ex: The TTW Interiors Project).
