Self-motivation is absolutely essential when working on hobbies, so in no way should you feel like have a responsibility to tell the tortoise every now and then to get his sorry shell moving, but you probably already know that anyway.
Releasing on Steam also costs money, something I am frankly not willing to shell out just to make the modification more accessible. I don't expect any of you to shell out money to make it available on Steam either. Besides, if I released it on Steam, then I'd have to deal with all those annoying avatars, you know the type that show some really weird cartoon character straight from the darkest corners of East Asia. Or even worse, to see people fighting each other because somebody didn't like the modification. Steam all in all is like a compost bin and is an absolute perfect breeding ground for digital human maggots. I think that comment alone will probably ensure I never get anything released on Steam.
The other issue is version control. Yes, automatic updates can be very convenient, until one of those updates actually makes the program worse. Not being able to rollback to a later version is frankly bad design and certainly not something I would like to encourage.
