The Power of Creation

Today Bethesda released the Creation Kit, the long-coming editor for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and a much called for Hi-Res Texture Pack for the PC, both free of charge to Skyrim owners.

For those not in the know, the two previous Elder Scrolls games, Oblivion and Morrowind, were both shipped with powerful editing software (the very software used to make the game in fact) that led to the creation of thousands of fan mods. Even today people are making mods for Morrowind close to 10 years after it was initially released.

You could make anything from a simple sound replacer that made farting noises whenever a character stepped, to a Total Conversion that re-created your favorite fantasy world, or just add some new weapons or NPCs to the game.

Now this power is available to Skyrim modders. Up till now they’ve been using the community created SkyEdit software, but there are limitations.

I personally intend to create a small handful of mods already, and am hard at work on the first! I suggest you consult the Creation Kit documentation if you intend to do much of anything, or if you have no experience with modding an Elder Scrolls game. However, as of right now, the site is experiencing difficulty due to a high load.

Go figure 😛
