Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim’s engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won’t be ready for a while. To help cope with that fact, I look at the team’s progress videos as mere instances of 3D Morrowind fan art. So let’s look at some fan art!
My approach to modding Fallout 4 is laid-back: I want to make the game better, but I don’t want to fundamentally change it all that much.
Sven Co-op, the now 17-year-old Half-Life co-op mod, is getting its standalone Steam release on the 22nd—this Friday. It’ll launch as a free download with several maps, including the original Half-Life campaign, reworked for the mod’s newest version.
On PC, Fallout 4 is an endless sea of possibility. Anything you can imagine, you can probably download as a customization and insert it into the game.
And you thought normal Deathclaws were dangerous.
What looks like a Venator-class Star Destroyer replica at first is in fact an incredibly well-made case for a gaming PC.
Opinions about Fallout 4 may be as sprawling and changeable as the Commonwealth wasteland, but most people agree that the new dialogue system leaves something to be desired. Fortunately, there’s a mod for that.
Mod DB is one of the best places to download fan-made add-ons, and every year, the community votes on their favorites. I expected this year’s biggest PC games—Fallout 4, The Witcher 3—to dominate the list but, uh, nope. Instead, tons of people voted on a mod for a 2006 Lord of the Rings strategy game.
Because your murderous wasteland rampage needs a little extra something, don’t you think?
It’s probably the perfect item to scare off guests from the living room. Modder Evie Bee built a replica of Portal 2’s AI companion that moves and sounds just as annoying as the original one.
Mod DB’s begun accepting votes for its 2015 Mod of the Year competition. Like last year, the top 10 mods will be chosen by the end of the month—until then, you can head over here to see how it works, or here for Indie DB’s Indie of the Year and here for Slide DB’s App of the Year awards, if you’re interested in them.
Trevor, Franklin, Lamarr and Michael are here, as the Teletubbies, ready to make your morning gloriously stupid.
You know how in Deus Ex, you’d throw an item at an NPC, even with level 4 muscle augs activated, and it’d bounce off of them harmlessly and they’d make a snide comment? Thanks to GMDX, those days are over.
The game is Sonic Generations. Or rather, Super Mario Generations, thanks to modder group Daku & Squiz.
In honor of Halo 5: Guardians’ impending release, Vadu Amka, Belgian purveyor of excellent custom consoles, has crafted a Halo-themed Xbox One—his first current-gen console mod, in fact.
When the Resident Evil remake was re-released earlier this year, one modder had a specific change in mind: bring back the cringeworthy voice acting. In January, they’d only worked in a few scenes, but that’s changed in the months since. Now, the whole game has terrible voice acting!
Remember Half-Life: Blue Shift, that expansion where you played as Barney, the security guard? Well, Blue Shift’s Source engine remake, Black Mesa: Insecurity, just got its very first teaser trailer. You can watch it below, and follow the mod’s Mod DB page and/or Black Mesa Forum thread for updates.
Inspired by Black Mesa’s Steam re-release, modder Hezus decided to return to his 2012 remake of Half-Life’s “Uplink” demo, Black Mesa Uplink, to update it with extra content. Above is his first screenshot, showing off the mod’s new look. You can follow the mod’s progress (or give the old version a try) over at Mod DB.
johnskyrim is a modder who likes to bring over stuff from other games, like World of Warcraft and Runescape, to—you guessed it—TES V: Skyrim. This is his latest project: Quel’Delar, Might of the Faithful, a reward from WoW’s “Return of Quel’Delar” quest chain. You can grab the mod here on the Nexus and here on Steam.
The Thief Gold HD Texture Mod has hit version 1.0 after a couple years’ development, turning Looking Glass Studios’ 15+ year old stealth-em-up a lot... well, I wouldn’t say prettier, ‘cause Thief’s universe is hardly pretty. But still, those are some impressive visuals. Might try this on my next playthrough.
