In the first three days
after Bethesda's Skyrim Creation Kit went online, some two
million mods were downloaded by players, reports Bethesda. The
company says its RPG was 2011's second-bestselling game (spoiler: the #1 title had modern soldiers and modern mustaches in it),
and the response to the Creation Kit has given the title a new lease
of life while we wait for the first DLC announcement.
Mods currently available
include the Valve tie-in Fall of the Space Core, some Lord of the
Rings weapons to wield against Skyrim's ne'er-do-wells, a fix to drastically raise the price of the game's books (finally!) and an Iron Chef hat and tunic made from dragon bones. If those don't appeal,
there's only around 3000 other mods on the rapidly-growing database
for you to peruse, sample and corrupt your savegames (oh yeah, save
your game like ten times before you start modding). Any early reader favorites out there?
