When you’re chasing down dragons and slaying monsters, it’s easy to miss the smaller details in Skyrim’s world. It’s time for a ‘stop and smell the flowers’ approach to the land of Tamriel, and now there’s a mod that virtually spruces up all the plants and vegetation in the game, allowing players to appreciate the finer aspects of horticulture.

The developers of Skyrim Together, a Skyrim multiplayer mod that intends to allow up to eight people to play through Bethesda’s fantasy RPG at the same time, say that they are going to release a new playable build of the game every night.
In the wake of the reaction to the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, you might’ve already forgotten about that time a Starbucks cup showed up on Daenerys’s table. (It was like a week ago.) Some Skyrim players have decided we need to bring this anachronism to the frozen north of Tamriel, and thankfully we have the power of Skyrim mods to make that happen.
If you’re anything like me, Skyrim is not just a platform for axe-swinging, dragon-felling, and all other forms of destructive Dovahkiin-ing. It is also a space for community, finding the ‘right’ follower to quest with, and laying down roots in your locale of choice – all of which depends on walkabout-prone NPCs. But now this new mod, by javaplaza, lets you track everyone involved in your grand nesting plans through a flute doubling as a GPS tracker.
One of the developers of Skyrim Together, a Skyrim mod attempting to bring online multiplayer to Bethesda’s RPG, says that the team’s “entire codebase” has been “scrapped.” In a comment posted last night, developer Ijustwantsteamdosh gave fans a brief update on the state of the project.
I liked the Thieves Guild questline in vanilla Skyrim. I had been playing mostly as a bit of a boy scout, and it doing things that were slightly bad was a refreshing change of pace. But there were some annoyances, and a friendly modder has gone and done an overhaul on the entire Thieves Guild to make it more fun and less of a pain.
Horsing around in Skyrim just got a lot more interesting with a mod that brings some much needed equestrian diversity to the fantasy RPG. The More Horses mod adds, among other things, new breeds, stables, foals, and herds, satisfying just about anyone’s need for greater horse-play in the game.
There are hundreds of books to read in Skyrim, but between battling dragons and exploring new lands, reading a block of text is the last thing I want to be doing. But a dedicated fan has created a mod that turns most of Skyrim’s books into in-game audiobooks, so you can listen to the lore of Skyrim as you play.
One of the developers behind Skyrim Together, a fan-funded project to introduce multiplayer to Skyrim, has explained in a new Reddit post that the team “doesn’t really control” when the release date is.
A developer of a popular Skyrim multiplayer mod says that the team “doesn’t owe the community anything.” Maxgriot, one of the mod team behind Skyrim Together, posted a comment on Reddit earlier this month suggesting that the developers have considered giving up on the project due to the reaction from players.
