Today we’re excited to announce the SnowRunner Creator Rewards Program. Everyone at Saber, Focus Home Interactive, and mod.io have been blown away by the skill and creativity shown by modders which has given the community so much to enjoy. In the first 30 days since the game launched, over 250 mods have been released and downloaded over 1,000,000 times!

How will Mod Rewards work?

The goal of this program is to thank and encourage modders who create content for SnowRunner to be enjoyed by all players. Starting with May, the top five creators in each of two categories will receive a reward from a combined pool of €2,850 ($3,100) each month.

Top 5 Mod Creators

  • €400 reward to each
  • Most subscriptions across all mods submitted in last 3 months
  • Mods must be active, visible and working with the latest version of SnowRunner
  • Mods must have a weighted rating above 50% according to the mod.io algorithm
  • Mods must create something new (map or vehicle) tweaks are not eligible

Top 5 Rising Stars

  • €170 reward to each
  • Most new subscriptions in last 30 days across all mods submitted in last 3 months
  • Mods must be active, visible and working with the latest version of SnowRunner
  • Mods must have a weighted rating above 50% according to the mod.io algorithm
  • Mods must create something new (map or vehicle) tweaks are not eligible

The Program will run monthly with the rewards continuing in coming months. This will be extended if it goes as well as we believe it will. We may tweak the rewards if we think there is a fairer way to reward modders, but will let you know of any change ahead of time. There’s no need to sign up, all modders will be considered in line with the rewards program rules below. Winners will be announced monthly here and on the SnowRunner official forums.

To be eligible your mod must create something new and file edit tweaks are excluded from being considered. So for vehicles, this will usually mean that the model itself has to have been reworked to some degree to be considered. The line between a “full mod” and a “tweak” can be blurry at times, and we will still use our own judgement when deciding what counts as a mod for the purposes of the mod rewards program.

From the very beginning modding has been a much loved part of the game, with creators doing incredible things tweaking existing vehicles and introducing entirely new ones into the game. Running a rewards program feels like a fantastic way to encourage innovation, and give back to the amazing community we have in a unique way. The creative opportunities for modding in Snowrunner will only grow as upcoming game releases will introduce tools for interior customization and map-making.

We cannot wait to see the amazing rides that you come up with, and we look forward to playing the top creations each month that push the boundaries forward. Remember, the creator rewards program exists for you, the players and modders, so please keep letting us know on the SnowRunner official forums what you think!

Program Rules

  1. All eligible modders will be automatically considered for the rewards program. For mods to be eligible:
    1. You must
      1. Have an active member account on mod.io when the rewards are calculated and at the last day of the relevant month. Duplicate accounts will be grouped or banned;
      2. Have complied with mod.io Terms of Use and Privacy Policy;
      3. Not work for mod.io, or Focus Home Interactive, be related or live with someone who does.
    2. The mods must
      1. Be your original creation;
      2. Be visible and accepted;
      3. Be active and not taken down for any reason;
      4. Have a rating over 50% according to the mod.io algorithm;
      5. Be compatible with the latest version of SnowRunner;
      6. Have a subscriber count that has grown in the month;
      7. Comply with the relevant SnowRunner game EULA;
      8. Be added in the last 3 months.
      9. Have gone beyond editing values on existing game files. For vehicles, this will usually mean that the model itself has to have been reworked to some degree to be considered.
      10. Be tagged as "Vehicle New" or "Map" to be considered. This will specify to us that the mod is not changing existing content, but creating something new. Any incorrectly tagged mods will be disqualified from the reward program. This tag can be added at any point.
    3. mod.io reserves the right to exclude any mod creator or mod from the program for any reason. Mod creators who are found to have acted in bad faith will be permanently excluded from this and any future program.
  2. The winner will be the primary mod creator only. A mod creator can win both the Top Mod and Rising Star rewards in a month, and win prizes in multiple months.
  3. mod.io will announce monthly winners in the week following the end of each month in our blog. Winners will also be notified directly via their member account messaging.
  4. To be eligible to receive rewards payments you must:
    1. Have a bank account that can receive payments from our payment provider;
    2. Have parental approval if you are under the age of consent in your country;
    3. Provide relevant bank and funds transfer details to our payment provider before the 15th day of the month in which you are notified that you are a rewards winner.
  5. Winners will receive their reward less any payment transaction fees, including currency exchange fees and are responsible for any taxes.
  6. The decisions of mod.io Staff regarding eligibility and winners will be final and binding on all members.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact support@mod.io

Good Luck!

Really excited to be running a rewards program in partnership with Focus Home and Saber Interactive to reward the top mod creators in Snowrunner. Big step forward for modding that I hope more games adopt in the future to encourage creativity from their modding community :)
