Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing user-generated content with the Workshop, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…Workshop is probably one of the coolest things on Steam OS.…What is Workshop exactly?…Well Workshop is essentially a place to…share content that users create for the game.…These are things like weapons, hats, boots, other types…of clothing and items that are used in game.…This might even be total conversions, things that changes…the game completely, add new planets, new worlds, new levels.…In the case of Portal Two, you have new levels.…But in the case of Skyrim.…
You have things that change the lighting, they…change terrain, they change all kinds of things dramatically.…So, let's take a look and see how this is implemented.…So here, you can see I've chosen headgear, and…these are all hats that are available inside Steam.…You can choose to narrow down over here by class.…If you play as a medic, you can get all the medic hats, for example.…And you can also see up at the top any hats that are popular with friends, or…any ones that are your favorites if you…favorited them, or the top-rated ones of all time.…
There are other categories as well.…
