This is a heads up announcement to please, for the love of all that is good, always keep your wits about you when downloading from here or anywhere on the internet.
There is currently an individual who is placing trojans within well known pieces of Skyrim software, such as the Skyrim Character Editor and even Skyrim Mod Organizer, and then uploading them as new files here on Skyrim Nexus (note, the original files here and here are NOT compromised, this user is uploading new files to the site masquerading as these files). This trojan has code within it that will retrieve any passwords you have s ...(continue reading the full article)
The latest Elder Scrolls Online beta weekend kicks off today from 12pm EST (well, in fact, it's working already for me, which probably means it's live right now!), and what better way to see it in than with the official launch of our Elder Scrolls Online Nexus site, complete with Nexus Mod Manager support for the game.
Though ESO is an MMORPG that doesn't support the typical type of open modding we've seen in previous Elder Scrolls games (for obvious reasons, it's an MMO), it does have a very open addon platform for the UI, and many mods have already been released while the game is in beta. I'v ...(continue reading the full article)
Just a quick heads up to let you know that we are aware that the sites were down for two hours today between the hours of 10am and 12pm GMT. For once, it wasn't us!
This problem rose above our server provider and above the data centre in which our servers are hosted to a huge internet hub in the UK at Telehouse London. Telehouse London is the main hub of the UK, so if something goes wrong there, it trickles down to everything that connects to it.
As you're reading this now things should, fingers crossed, be back to normal again. If this occurs in the future, and I'm actually online and aware of ...(continue reading the full article)
posted by Dark0ne Game NewsFiles that are written in languages other than English and "translation" mods (authors who have translated an English mod in to another language) have always caused a bit of a pickle for users on the Nexus due to the fact they're mixed in with all the other mods in one big soup. If you're an English-only speaker it can be a bit of a pain having to navigate past numerous mods written in different languages, or indeed multiple different translations for the same mod. Similarly if you're looking for a translation of a popular mod in your language that, too, can be difficult and inefficient. Some ...(continue reading the full article)

Over the past few weeks the NMM crew have been working tirelessly on a new version of NMM. The main focus of this version is to dramatically improve, if not altogether eradicate the incomplete download issues that have plagued NMM for the past month or more and to also reduce the rather substantial requirements and strains that NMM is placing on our server-side infrastructure.
On 0.46.0 I was getting a 25% completion ratio on downloads. That is to say, if I started 10 downloads, 2-3 would complete as expected, 7-8 would fail. Obviously that's not good at all. We know that, you know that. With 0 ...(continue reading the full article)
We've added a relatively small update to the sites today that revolves around the "Required files" system in the file database. When an author adds their file to the site via our file wizard one of the steps involves adding any files that the author's file needs in order to work. This information is then displayed in the rather small, out-of-the-way button labeled "Required" on the file page. Typically authors also put any file requirements in their descriptions but, as I'm sure any file author would be willing to confirm, some users seem incapable of actually reading descriptions, installatio ...(continue reading the full article)
