Top 3 Skyrim Nexus mods this fortnight

By Posted 27 Jan 2012, 14:08

There are dozens of mods for Skyrim released each day and sometimes it can be hard to filter the good from the bad, therefore we thought we would point out some of the best mods which people over at Skyrim Nexus users have endorsed since mid-January.

According to this page the following mods are the most endorsed files in the last two weeks – so let’s get started.

The most endorsed mod this fortnight is called Dovakiin Hideout, you can see a fully descriptive video showing off this mod here. Basically it gives every house in Skyrim a hideout called the Dovakiin’s Hideout which is accessible via a basement door, this hideout is shared between all houses and once in here there are loads of neat things to check out. Firstly it acts as a hub so you can teleport from the hideout to any house (5 to choose from), also there’s plenty of weapon racks, display cases, mannequins, chests, satchels, plaques where you can store items and weaponry etc – you can also carry out crafting, smithing and smelting etc here. To install the mod check out this link, here you can see full instructions and locate all the files you need.

Next up is a mod by IcePenguin called ‘A Quality World Map – With Roads’, no prized for guessing what this mod does! Basically IcePenguin has hand drawn all of the roads in the game, without this, navigating around can often be awkward as you can’t always see the quickest /easiest root to a village. You can see a video highlighting this great mode here, to install it check out this link for everything you need to know. You can see a glimpse of the map with roads below.

Last but by no means least is the ‘Wars in Skyrim IV – Dark Rainbow is back’ mod by Alexandrox. This mod makes Skyrim a more dangerous place as its likely you will come across groups of enemies on your travels, you could face 5 dragons at once, or 2 factions at a time – it really is unpredictable and gets the adrenaline going. Below we have embedded a video which introduces you to the mod, check out this link for full details and installation instructions.

We would love to hear from you if you’ve discovered a Skyrim mod recently which you think our readers should know about, if so leave us a comment below. Have you used any of the mods mentioned in this post? If so, are they as good as we are led to believe?

    Wars mod basically makes Skyrim into Oblivion with the bad levelling system…

    That’s false. Wars in Skyrim has several different versions depending on people’s different preferences. Besides, it’s a mod and you do not have to download it. Even if it did do as you said, it isn’t necessarily bad just because you don’t like it.

    Regarding the OP, Deadly Dragons is definitely a mod that deserves the spotlight. It had really made skyrim into an amazing experience for me. It makes it truly feel like you are the dovakhiin.
