Skyrim Creation Kit Now Available: Modders, Start Your PCs

by


It’s been several months since Skyrim was released, so I understand if some people who bought the game are getting bored or have moved on to other games. Or you know, life. But now that developer Bethesda Game Studios has released the Skyrim Creation Kit, it’s only a matter of time before a ton of new content for the game dragonshouts your time away.

The Skyrim Creation Kit will let users create new characters and locations as well as tweak and mess around with the existing game in many ways. The developer says that the kit is the same program that their team used to make the world of Skyrim. If that’s true, this is a very generous gesture from Bethesda. They’re giving the public a chance to see what the pros work with.

Modders will be able to upload their creation to Steam Workshop for the world to see, play, adore and berate. Console (and OS X) users, in case you still didn’t get it by now – the kit and the mods are for PC users only. Watch the video for more on the kit:

Bethesda also put up a wiki page for the Creation Kit as well as a series of online video tutorials for using the kit. The first episode is already up, and thanks to the magic of embeddage, is already here! There. Below.

Steam users, the Skyrim Creation Kit should be available under the ‘Tools’ drop-down menu in your Steam library. If you don’t know what a Steam library is, go here and sign up. But that’s not all! Bethesda has also released the High Resolution Texture Pack free DLC for the game. So many bits!

Before you download the DLC or the kit, make sure your hardware meets the Skyrim‘s recommended requirements: Windows Vista or 7, a quad-core CPU, at least 4GB RAM and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers. We await your mods! And don’t even think about making a peen-dragon – Bethesda has explicitly stated that they will ban any “offensive, copyrighted or trademarked material.”

    This looks cool. My kids build maps for Unreal Tournament 2004 and I have wondered what would be a wise modern switch-to option. We all love the 3-D 1st-person experience some more for the fighting, others for the architecture and exploration fun.

    For the informed out there: Is this the best option out there or is there a better option?
