Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

Free Premium for Mod Authors

  • Comment
We launched our Donation Points System in 2018 to give back to the mod authors on Nexus Mods who have given so much to all of us in our community. To date, we have paid out over $7 million USD to our mod authors via this system. The DP system allows authors to earn points which they could redeem for PayPal payouts, discounted games and, until recently, discounted Premium Memberships. These included Lifetime Premium Memberships, which is something we stopped selling back in 2021 for our normal users and was only intended to be given to our mod authors.

As we continue to grow in size and popularity we have reached a point where we can afford to reward our mod authors with a Premium Membership directly without them needing to "buy" it with Donation Points, even if it was heavily discounted. Only approximately a quarter of our mod authors have opted their mods into our DP system so with this change, we'll be able to reward all our mod authors whether they are opted into the DP system or not.

While the system isn't quite ready to go live yet, we have removed the ability to buy Premium Memberships from our Donation Point store as we didn't want mod authors to buy something in the DP store now that they would have been given for free only a short while later.

Below is a list of the milestones in Unique Downloads (UDL) that will need to be achieved in order to receive a free Premium Membership as a reward:

  • 1,000 UDL: Free Supporter Membership and Access to Mod Author Discord Servers / Nexus Mods Forum (This is current functionality)
  • 3,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 6,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 9,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 12,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 15,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 18,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 21,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 24,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 27,000 UDL: Free 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 30,000 UDL: Lifetime Premium Membership

These rewards will be redeemable at a time of your choosing and the Unique Download count will apply to all historical mods including those that are Hidden, Archived or Deleted. Further details will be provided closer to the release time, which we are hoping will be within the next 30 days.

      Quickest way might be to use the nexus mods bot on discord to search your profile.
      /search users query:ashenshugarII private:True

      Hopefully we'll be adding this to profile pages in the not too distant future but in the meantime, the method outlined by Ashen is probably the quickest way to find out.

      As a verified mod author, you won't see any ads. You have support rank, but do not have the supporter badge as this is limited to users who have previously been 'premium' members. It is a little confusing.
      You should see the verified mod author notification in your message centre.

    Honestly didn't even know we could redeem DP for premium..

    Surprised to see we're all getting free lifetime premium now.   Finally download speeds will no longer be a problem!   hopefully

    Not sure how ya'll make money from mod downloads to be able to do this, but the DP system, limited as it may be, is still appreciated.

    So from what I understand, If you have few mods, 1 that has over 30k unique downloads, and onest that have less than a 1000 you don't get anything?

      I made "the simplest & most insignificant mod ever released for Skyrim" & still surpassed over 30k unique downloads, dont be fearful, just make things & have fun.🤷 I also helped with some other mods that are released too, modeling rigging n such, not sure if we can count those since they dont show in dashboard, although we do get DP from them so its counted, if the author includes you in credits.

      I wish I have had more time to complete my other mod ideas, but things have been hectic here to say the least.

      You have over 30k UDL and will get Lifetime Premium. It doesn't matter if it's on one mod or spread over several.

      Uff, thats a relief, since i've made 2 'shitmods' for skyrim LE and got less than 100 downloads. But how do i get this premium. I have to wait or redeem it somehow?

      The new system isn't live yet, so we have to wait a bit. I'm sure they'll notifiy us on how exactly it will work.

    About time too. After all it is the mods and mod authors that drive traffic to Nexusmods, without them Nexusmods wouldn't even exist.

    We can't force anybody to pay for mods (and we never should in my opinion). Each part (users, authors and Nexus) profit from each other and it is nice to see that Nexus does support the authors. For Nexus each subscription has a value, but it doesn't cost Nexus money to hand out Premium access to mod authors for their work. Far better than paying out DP. And given that Nexus is by far the best modding site, one can actually make use of it. For me a step in the right direction and an incentive for others to start authoring mods from which we all will benefit.

    EDIT2:
    Can you answer my question please?
    EDIT:
    Is there an answer available now for my question? Waiting anxiously!
    Q:
    Does this mean my deleted Tropical Skyrim II will be counted in (and undeleted)?

      It won't be undeleted, but it clearly says in the article that "the Unique Download count will apply to all historical mods including those that are Hidden, Archived or Deleted".

      Depends on what the reason was for deleting the mod. It won't certainly not be un-deleted,

      I bought my lifetime with real $$ not DP.  I am not looking for a refund.  I am glad to support the site.

      Why do you guys keep deleting my comments, or part of my comments ? 
      Isn't having a different opinion allowed anymore if this opinion doesn't break any rules?
      I said nothing wrong, I only said something you might not like, which is no reason to delete whole comments (or parts of comments).

      After already deleting a part my comment further down (which clearly was to present evidence for my opinion on that matter) you now delete my comments when it does not break any rules ?

      And before you jump to conclusions : this is NOT to question your moderation rules, it is so I know WHAT those rules are, because they seem to apply differently for me than for other users on the Nexus apparently.

      Cheers
