The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Creation Kit Will Feature Deep Steam Integration

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

Good news everyone: Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will soon have a Creation Kit, and that means modder will be able to "upload, download, and install their mods, making sharing custom content easier than ever before." In short: Glorious, wonderful, amazing Skyrim mods are coming.

The Creation Kit's new features include a scene editor for NPCs, a new scripting language, improvements to the lighting mods, and new integration with Steam that will allow gamers to auto update mods. So if your favorite modder makes a tweak in Skyrim Big Head Mode, you'll have it automatically -- Slick! Anything that makes it easier for modders to work means better mods for downloaders like myself. We have an in-depth developer diary under the "Read More" tag, so click it.

Other than a few half-finished NeverWinter Nights mods, I never really got into creating my own levels and stuff. What about you guys? Are you into modding games at all?
