Is it easy to replace a file that you are selling that needs to be modified due to a correction and/or other update?
I think I've screwed up every release. It's sometimes confusing to me what the right order of operations is to update files - do you remove the old files first and then add the new files? That's what I usually do, though sometimes I've forgotten and ended up with two files. Can't tell them apart so I remove them both and reads the right one... If you can screw something up, I will.
Speaking purely as a customer/consumer, while there are alternatives to the One Book Shelf sites (DriveThru RPG, RPGNow, Wargame Vault, etc.), they don't have anything like the breadth of material, and setting up a separate account every time for other sites to download at most a few items, or worse, with individual publishers, rapidly becomes very tedious, which leads to not purchasing.
If you want more advice on how the sites work for small publishers, I'd advise you to check through the relatively new DM's Guild part of OBS, www.dmsguild.com/ . There are huge numbers of small companies, mostly one person enterprises, who have suddenly appeared as if "overnight" with material to support, enhance and enlarge the 5th edition D&D rules, much in the way of hard-copy fanzines of old. A lot of these folks are very new to setting up documents for online downloading, and while it's clear there have been problems - often I think by people just not following the instructions correctly - it's also clear that OBS have provided a lot of help to enable such newcomers to flourish. Some of the documents are into their seventh or eighth incarnations, so it does seem to be fairly straightforward to replace files, certainly.
I forget which piece it was, but I ordered something from one of the OBS sites, and within a couple hours of reading here that a revised model was being submitted to OBS, I received an email from OBS that the revised file was available
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
www.paizo.com is an alternative, but I never tried it. Although it is a house organ in many ways, focused on Pathfinder related product, there are many products from other publisher. By example, you can find the old Worldworksgames product...
Cons... less choices, usually more pricey than OBS.

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
