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.
In addition to these great mods, in the Top 10 Downloads section, three Oblivion quest mods were included — ed_conn’s Windfall, shadeMe’s Vector, and kane1045′s Haunted House.
Congratulations on getting your mods in print!
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…
- See You Sleep by mmmpld: This mod (shown above) allows your player to sleep in beds, rather than beside a bed.
- Hashshashin Armor by Dimitri Mazieres: New armor inspired by Assassin’s Creed.
- Myths and Legends: Weapons 2 by TemplarGFX, GrimDeath, SykoFox, GamerGirlx: Mod designed for high level characters that adds 14 unique artifacts to the game — each weapons having a different story to along along with it.
- Improved No Glow by Shadre: As the title indicates, this mod enhances the look of enchanted items.
- Antares’ Big Mod by Arcimaestro Antares: With this mod you have special privileges with the lower ranking members of your faction.
Head to Planet Elder Scrolls for more details on these mods. Congrats to all the inductees.
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.
In the September issue of OXM, the magazine’s editors revealed The Top 100 Xbox Games of All-Time (that’s both Xbox and Xbox 360 titles). Three titles from Bethesda Games Studios made the list — Fallout at #7, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion at #17, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind at #89.
To check out the whole list, look for the September issue on newsstands now.
This week we have a new modding interview with BGS forum member Sami Pesola of Canterbury, UK — otherwise known as CptJoker in the forums.

Over the past two weeks, Rock, Paper, Shotgun Editor Alec Meer has provided readers with a journal of his day-by-day exploits in the world of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. His diaries begin with a two-part prÃ©cis (part 1 and part 2), which set the stage and let folks know what user-created mods he’s using.
Since then, Alec has written six diary entries. You can find them below:
Won’t you join us in following his adventures?
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.

This week’s modding interview is with ElminsterEU. Originally from Germany, he now lives in Australia, and indicates he has no plans of leaving. When he’s not modding, he works as a Lead Architect for a relationship database management system. His hobbies include reading science fiction and fantasy novels, pen-and-paper RPGs, swimming, and scuba diving. I guess the scuba diving wasn’t that great in Germany.

Last year I posted about Morrowind Modding History, a site dedicated to preserving mods created for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
I got an update recently from site founder Fliggerty — letting me know that the site is accomplishing what it set out to do. With the help of some passionate members in the community, the site now hosts over 5000 mods from other now-defunct mod sites.
Cheers to all the members that have helped this site become a success!
Today I was alerted about some pretty cool maps created by the community over at UESP. They’ve got Google Map versions of Cyrodiil, The Shivering Isles and Morrowind.
For more on these and other maps, check out these links (Morrowind, Oblivion).
