One of the long awaited items for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is nearly here, as Bethesda has released more information on the Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop. The Bethesda games have all been about modding, and even The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind has an active mod community a decade after launch. With Skyrim, a new game engine means a new set of modding tools, but Bethesdad has kept the Creation Kit as close to the Construction Set as possible. Anything you want to do to Skyrim can be possible with the Creation Kit, and should open up a whole new selection of mods. With the Creation Kit comes the Skyrim Workshop, an easy way to browse and download mods. You can subscribe to different mods, search for the newest or most popular, leave feedback, and upload your own mods. Any subscribed mods will automatically download when you start the Skyrim launcher, removing any hassles someone may have with modding.
One of the new changes Bethesda has made is the ability to upload custom INI files for easier modding. This way you will no longer need to back up any INI files as the proper ones will be included with the mods. Bethesda intends the Skyrim Workshop to work with places like Skyrim Nexus, so the ability to package custom INI files can be used by all.
The Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop will be launching soon, and you can check out the video below to get some more information on it.
