Kerbal Space Program, Curse.com Partner Together
For Updated Modding Community Website
Kerbal Spaceport will now be part of CurseForge modding community
Squad, the developers of the award-winning space agency sim game Kerbal Space Program, announced a partnership with Curse.com to partner on a new website for Kerbal Spaceport, the host site for the game’s popular modding community.
Starting today, modders will be welcomed to start updating and uploading their KSP game mods to http://kerbal.curseforge.com. The existing website, http://KerbalSpaceport.com, will remain open for modders to transfer their mods to the new site but will no longer be accepting new mods. Players will go to Curse.com to find Kerbal Space Program mods.
“Modders have helped make Kerbal Space Program a more open, more rewarding game experience for our players,” Squad chief operating officer Adrian Goya said. “Curse is an important partner because their team is passionate and experienced in caring for and growing online game communities, such as our amazing playerbase for Kerbal Space Program.”
"We've got a great platform and a tremendous team that will be supporting the amazing modders for Kerbal Space Program," said Bryan McLemore, Curse's Author Platform Evangelist. "We also expect the millions of gamers who frequent Curse every month to see Kerbal Space Program as a great addition to our existing community."
Kerbal Space Program recently won the 2013 Game Developers Choice Audience Award, which is voted online by gamers from all games nominated, including indie and AAA titles. KerbalSpaceport, the home for KSP mods, has more than 2,000 pieces of user-generated content to allow for players to customize their KSP experience. As part of CurseForge, modders will now have a bigger audience to share their mods and will have the opportunity to participate in ad-generated revenue sharing.
