Skyrim has a lot of things going for it, even now these eight years after it first came out. But its combat animations have never been particularly inspiring. Plenty of modders have put their skills to use addressing this issue, but this new mod adds some extra pizazz by adding to rather than simply changing vanilla Skyrim’s animation set.

In the eight years (!) since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out, mod makers have been hard at work transforming the game. We’ve had grand new areas and adventures created entirely from scratch, multiplayer expansions for co-op dragonslaying, and even GPS trackers for those elusive companions. Beyond that, seemingly every part of the game has been remastered, from the flowers to the weather to the entire look of the game.
Beyond Skyrim, a mod aiming to bring the entire nation of Tamriel to life within The Elder Scrolls V, seems to be coming along nicely. In a new teaser trailer, released earlier this month, the team offered fans their best look yet at the Imperial nation of Cyrodiil.
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.
