The license is GPL-3 and the code is the same as the version released on Steam. So that the Steam version is using the ‘steam’ feature enabled. Due to the GPL licensing the steamworks support. Which is disabled by default. Since it breaks things like the ‘modding’ menu and multiplayer. Also due note, the assets are not included with the release. So this means if you want to get into developing the game. You will have to be copy the assets from the game on Steam.
The UniverCity workshop support is very basic currently. A ‘modding’ menu item will be available. So you can upload mods if a folder other than ‘base’ exists in the assets folder. Subscribed mods should be available when launching the game.
Therefore, if you are looking to venture into development. Take up using Open Source tools. Be sure to check out the Steam release. Which is currently available with a 15% discount until February 8th. With builds for Linux and Windows PC.
