Bethesda's just released the
eagerly-awaited Skyrim Creation Kit, allowing Steam players to get to
work on that magnum opus you've all been planning since Skyrim came
out. If you were charmed by the ponies or Macho Mans slowly trickling
into Tamriel, imagine how much fun it'll be when they start infesting
your Deku Trees or Half-Life maps or wherever else you see fit to put
them. Visit the Skyrim Workshop for some inspiration.
If, on the other hand, your
talents lean less toward “creating clever things” and more into
the realm of “seeing and/or destroying pretty stuff,” you'll be
preferring the High-Resolution Texture Pack, also out on Steam today.
Doing pretty much exactly what it says, the Pack ought to give a new
lease on Skyrim's finer details and wider vistas alike. Just make
sure your machine's got the specs (Win Vista/7; 4GB system RAM; 1GB
video RAM), or Bethesda won't be held responsible for any glitches
that result, no matter how amusing. Both are available for free, immediate download over Steam.
