This week’s modding interview is with Morrowind modder sabregirl. When she’s not modding, she works as a college professor in the “Show Me” state of Missouri.

The November issue of PC Gamer UK arrived on my desk today, and catching my eye was The PC Gamer 50 Essential Mods list. Three of the 50 mods included were from within our community. Tamriel Rebuilt for Morrowind and Oblivion ranked #4, Mart’s Mutant Mod for Fallout 3 ranked #21, and Oscuro’s Oblivion Overhaul made the list at #29.
Congratulations on getting your mods in print!
This week we’ve got a modding interview with Kevin Ryan (aka DragoonWraith). Kevin spends a lot of time working as a “Sheriff” for both The G.E.C.K. and TES Construction Set wikis — he’s helped us add some really cool features to both.
The 21-year-old hails from New York City and attends school out in Claremont, CA, where he’s studying to be an engineer at Harvey Mudd College.

Here’s a look at the mods for Morrowind and Oblivion that earned Hall of Fame status in the month of August. Take a look…
Head to Planet Elder Scrolls for more details on these mods. Congrats to all the inductees.
Thought I’d share some of the modding highlights I’ve seen in the last month for Fallout 3 and Oblivion.
Earlier in the year, we highlighted piratephil’s Survival Perk Pack. Recently, he let me know that his latest project, Vault Dwellers Survival Cooking Guide, is now available. As the title would indicate, the mod adds a new cooking element to the game with the following features:

Welcome back for another modding interview. This week we journey to Auckland, New Zealand to meet Mark Hanna (aka Cipscis). Mark is currently a university student (studying Biomedical Enginneering), and when he’s not studying, he enjoys Taekwon-Do, which he took up at age 10.
On to the interview…
What originally brought you to our forums?
I bought Oblivion in mid 2007, which lead me to occasionally browse the Elder Scrolls homepage. I’d never been part of an online community before, but eventually I became curious enough to click on the “Forums” link. I actually managed to spend about a week on the forums without even knowing that mods for Oblivion existed, but once I found the Oblivion mods forum I quickly moved my attention there. I was (and still am) impressed with the community on the BGS forums, which is the main reason why I’m still around two years later. I see now that I was very lucky that my first encounter with an online community was with one as great as what we have here.
August is the new July, and for that reason, we’re looking back at Planet Elder Scrolls’ Hall of Fame mods for last month.
Congrats to these modders for their hard work. Keep an eye on Planet Elder Scrolls — it won’t be long until August’s Hall of Fame additions are named.
Back in March, we shared news that Planet Fallout had started a modding competition called Project Safehouse, which centered around creating user-made Vaults with The G.E.C.K. Today they announced the winners in all three categories — Personal Vault, Corporate Vault, and Government Vault.
Here’s a quick look at the winners, who each scored an e-GeForce 9800 GTX video card from the folks at nVidia.
Today we honor mods that achieved Hall of Fame status at Planet Elder Scrolls for both the months of May and June. Check out the links below to learn more about each mod.
Congrats to all modders for their fantastic work!
