Train2Game students can now get their hands on official modding tools for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Skyrim Creation Kit allows modders to create in-game assets using the same tools that developer Bethesda used to make the full-game.
The release of Skyrim modding tools also sees the Steam integrated Skyrim workshop go live, allowing Skyrim modders to create, download and upload mods more simply than ever before.
To celebrate the launch of the Skyrim Creation Kit, Bethesda has released a High Resolution Pack which is available to download through Steam. Valve have also released a Skyrim mod, Fall of the Space Core, Vol. 1 which sees Portal 2’s Nolan North voiced Space Core join you in Skyrim.
You can see the official Skyrim mod tools in action in the trailer below.
Much more information about the modding tools is available on The Elder Scrolls community page.
A number of Train2Game students have been lookingforward to making Skyrim mods using Bethesda’s Creation Kit, and if you can get involved too. See this thread on the Train2Game forum for more information.
The Train2Game Blog has previously shown you some of the stranger Skyrim mods, including ones that let you turn Dragons into My Little Pony or “Macho Man” Randy Savage, and a mod that turns Mudcrabs into Futurama’s Doctor Zoidberg.
