Cities: Skylines Art Deco DLC is a collaboration between Paradox and modder Matt “Shroomblaze” Crux.

The money will be split between the modder and Paradox and it seems it will be the first of many.

Very cool to see this!

From the press release:
QuoteSTOCKHOLM - August 24, 2016 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher that knows how to commune with its community, today announced the first downloadable content (DLC) for Cities: Skylines to feature creations from one of the game’s talented modders. The best-selling city-building game Cities: Skylines has been modified and built upon by aspiring architects, artists, and designers worldwide since its launch in 2015, with over 90,000 pieces of community-created content now available on Steam Workshop. Paradox will soon publish its first official DLC featuring exclusively assets created by a community contributor, and share the benefits from the pack’s sales with the content creator.

The first pack, titled “Content Creator Pack: Art Deco,” will include a selection of Deco-inspired buildings from community creator Matt “Shroomblaze” Crux. These buildings are new and original creations created by Crux, exclusive to the Art Deco pack, and Crux will receive a share of revenue from their sale in addition to an initial payment from Paradox to cover the cost of production. Other community creators will be highlighted in upcoming packs planned for the near future.

“After over 3,400 hours in Cities: Skylines, it’s wonderful to have my own buildings become part of the game’s landscape,” said Matt Crux, the modder behind the Art Deco pack. “Because the Art Deco era is so highly regarded as one of the best building styles of history, I think it needs to be represented as such. I made the suggestion to Paradox Interactive and they allowed me to come up with the buildings of my choice. I’m eager to see what the rest of the community thinks of them.”


Big fan of Cities: Skylines myself, even with the performance issues it suffers from. Such a nice relaxing experience playing it. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Indeed, that's pretty neat. Instead of paid mods, this is what we need, more sponsored mods so you know there's a certain standard of quality.

Paradox also did this with Europa Universalis IV, which has two music DLCs made by a modder named Kairi Blodeuyn.

I never managed to play it again after the messy release of Snowfall... I lost my city and I'm too lazy to start a new one...
