The Great Battle of Skyrim – YouTube

February 10, 2012

This is an awesome and very well done video by Tyrannicon. Unlike the other “Epic Battle” videos, this one is planned out and has excellent camera work.

Tyrannicon mentions mods being used, and I noticed Midas Magic – Spells for Skyrim and at least one weapon mod i didn’t recognize. Anyone else recognize a mod in the video?

First Skyrim Mod!

February 7, 2012

The first official mod for Skyrim has arrived! It adds the Space Core of Portal II fame as an item, voiced by Nolan North himself. It lands on Mundus in the form of a comet. It will talk to you as you travel as long as it is in your inventory! To find the mod follow these instructions: Go to Skyrim’s page in Steam, scroll down to the Steamworks banner and click on it. There you will find all the Skyrim mods currently registered with Steam. Amongst them will be the Space Core mod Vol 1.

Here is a video someone put together explaining how to find the Space Core, and how to make the Dovahcore helmet!

The Power of Creation

February 7, 2012

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 😛
