Democracy 3 non steam verison

I have brought the game democracy 3 on direct.

I have just noticed that steam has a democracy 3 workshop but i cant download anything from it.

Can i download democracy 3 workshop mods?

You can try to add your game to Steam manually, but I’m not sure if this is enough to grant you access to the Workshop.

Your direct copy also comes with a steam key, if you want to activate that and thus easily use the mods
