• Meet the Man behind the Sliders - Ousnius

    Today we have something special for you: meet ousnius, the man behind plenty of popular and useful utilities such as BodySlide and Outfit Studio - tools that have accumulated millions of downloads across their respective Fallout 4, Skyrim SE, and Skyrim versions. 


    BigBizkit: Thanks for joining us today, we really appreciate it. To start this off why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?

  • Introducing our new Community Managers: Pickysaurus and BigBizkit

    Back in February we put out a call for Community Managers, as part of the office relocation process. Now that our two new CMs have settled into their positions, we thought it would be a good time to introduce them.

    Welcome to the team, Stefan (BigBizkit) and Mike (Pickysaurus)!
    First off, before we dive into work related questions, let's get back to where it all began...

  • First donation point report delivered, and recent updates to the system

    First report available

    Towards the end of May, we announced and launched our Donation Point system for mod authors to receive donations directly from Nexus Mods.

    While we don't send Donation Points until 3 months after the end of the month (e.g. Donation Points generated in May won't be received by users until the beginning of September) we will provide a report at the start of each month to all opted-in users, for the previous month, that shows and explains the DP you s...

  • Patreon page for our Donation Points system

    In May we announced our Donation Points system for mod authors on Nexus Mods. The premise of the system is (relatively) simple, each month Nexus Mods has committed to donating $6,000 - $10,000 from our own funds towards a donation pool for mod authors to benefit from. If you'd like to read more about the Donation Points system please read our launch news post and our FAQs section.

    Today we have launched a Patreon donation page to crowdfund a supplement to our donation pool so that ou...

  • Donation Points system now live for mod authors on Nexus Mods

    Back in December I announced our intention to create and release a system that provided some modest rewards to mod authors on Nexus Mods.

    It's taken us a bit longer to implement than we initially anticipated, but I am happy to announce that from today, any mod authors on Nexus Mods will be able to opt their files into our Donation Points system.

    The premise of the Donation Points (DP) system is relatively simple on the surface. Each month Nexus Mods will donate a set amou...

  • Invalid email addresses and you

    We've made a small change to the site today to inform any users whose emails are "bouncing" that they need to update their email records.

    A bounced email is basically an email we've sent you and then received back saying that the email is undeliverable.

    Bounced emails are bad for us as they are expensive to deal with on our email delivery platform and ultimately, if you are using the wrong email address or an email address that does not work/exist any more then you will n...

  • Security update for Nexus Mod Manager

    Today we are releasing some security updates for the Nexus Mod Manager to bring us in line with the new EU GDPR rules coming into force next month.

    NMM has been "end-of-line" since 2016, which means we no longer provide any official support for the software, but we thought it was prudent to spend the time and money to release this update so our users could continue to use the software's online services while ensuring we're compliant with the new regulations. We also did not want peop...

  • Vortex Alpha Release

    Hello everyone,

    For over a year now we've been working on a mod manager to replace the ailing Nexus Mod Manager. The premise was simple, attempt to combine the simplicity of the Nexus Mod Manager with the advanced functionality of Mod Organizer and create something that is accessible to all types of modders. Back in May of 2017 we named this replacement "Vortex".

    A couple of weeks ago we did a limited Alpha release of Vortex to 1,000 users, many of whom have been extremel...

  • February Giveaway #1

    I'm going to be completely straight with you, we're currently working on increasing our social media presence for Nexus Mods and have budgeted a small amount each month towards increasing our social media readership. We could certainly put that money straight into purchasing Facebook and Twitter ads, but I much prefer the idea of using that money instead to fund giveaways that benefit our users and that everyone can enter (even if you don't care about or hate social media).

    To that e...

    A belated Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everybody!

    We've been quiet in our news section recently as we've been busily working away on the site redesign and Vortex development, but the new year brings the perfect chance to update you on what happened last year and what we're working on in 2018.

    We welcomed 1,612,142 new users to Nexus Mods in 2017, or to put it another way, a new member joined Nexus Mods every 20 seconds. We now ...

    While a few of the developers continue to work on the new site design, fixing up bugs, improving page load time performance and responding to useful critiques and suggested improvements to the UI and UX from users, I wanted to take some time out to announce a new feature that a few of our other developers are currently working on that we plan to launch in the first quarter of 2018. A new year's resolution of sorts, if you will.

    The new functionality I want to talk about today is...

    In celebration of our new site design, we have teamed up with GOG.com, CORSAIR, MSI, and PCMasterRace to share our love for PC gaming worldwide through a massive giveaway! Before we get into the juicy details though, I wanted to take a quick trip down memory lane and look at some of the previous designs we've used at Nexus Mods before reaching this point.

    Since its initial founding in 2001, Nexus Mods has been through many incarnations. It all started with Morrowind Chronicles, a fan...

    We're currently implementing stage 2 of our redesign soft launch process and as such, you might experience a few oddities and/or get thrown about a bit between the old and new designs as we gradually implement the changes and stress test things.

    Stage 2 is moving the nexusmods.com domain over to the new design so by default, users will be on the new design. During this time we're still allowing users to access the old website design via https://old.nexusmods.com.
