  • The Twelve Mods of Christmas

    A joyous festive season to you all my gamers. As you may have noticed, in the spirit of the season, we have been busy posting themed mods on Facebook and X(Twitter) as well as the Forum once per day to mark the 12 days counting down to Saturalia.

    To get more eyes on these fun pieces of content, we’re releasing this news post roundup of all the mods we’ve posted so far with more to come. The news post will be updated daily until all 12 featured mods are added.

  • Moving your Site Preferences

    Update 9 Jan 2023

    This change is now live for all users. You can view the new preferences section here.



    As part of our ongoing work to update the Nexus Mods website and services, we will be making some changes to separate the “site preferences” and “content” pages that can be found under “My Nexus Account”. This is the first step in our efforts to consolidate the various places around the website where you can change different account preferenc...

  • BBCode update for mod pages and comments

    We've got an important bug fix that we're going to be squeezing in before Christmas that may cause some minor problems with how mod pages, comments (and other content that uses BBCode) are displayed. The update was initially released yesterday but we have since rolled it back as it introduced a breaking change to content containing certain use cases of spoiler tags. 

    Our biggest concern is that this problem occurs in the description of many popular mods so we've delayed the release ...

  • Community Forum Update

    Summary

    Recently we let you all know about an update we planned to make to our forum software. Our previous forum software, unfortunately, was extremely out-of-date and was really holding us back on being able to make quick and tangible updates to the Nexus Mods website. We've now finished this update and this article is going to explain what's changed, why we made the change and what you can expect in the short- to mid-term because of this change.

    Update - 21st November. Forums are once again live. Please post any forum-related feedback here.

  • The New Blur Setting for Adult Content is Here

    We've added a new option to your Content Blocking settings which enables adult content but blurs out the tiles and images by default. 

    It's fair to say this is a feature a lot of users really wanted for browsing the website and it has been the most upvoted suggestion on the feedback board since we opened it earlier in the year. 

    This new feature will show adult mods and media in search results and on the listing pages (e.g. the game homepage with the Hot Files) but the ...

  • Starfield Community Patch

    Starfield is almost here! We can't wait to join Constellation and explore the stars on 1 September and we're even more excited about the potential for mods the game has. Sim Settlements in Space? Yes, please. A whole new perk overhaul? Don't mind if we do. A mod that turns all planets into sandwiches? Sure! Today we're going to talk about the Starfield Community Patch Project which serves to collect and fix any bugs in the base game. 

    The idea of a community patch for Starfield isn'...

  • The future of Vortex and the Nexus Mods app

    Back in October 2022, we announced the arrival of Tim (Halgari) to the Nexus Mods team. We touched briefly on the future of Vortex and potential 2.0 updates. Things went a bit ‘stealth mode’ after that, so now it’s time to give more of an update on how the team has developed and how we see the next generation of mod management. This is going to be a long one, so buckle up!


    A brief history of Vortex

    Development of Vortex first began all the way back in 2016. At...

  • Fallout 4: Game of the Year released on GOG

    A DRM-free version of Fallout 4: Game of the Year edition is now available from GOG.com, making it the latest title in the Fallout franchise to get the Good Old Games treatment. Just like with the release of Skyrim back in September 2022, we've managed to get our mitts on the game a few days early to help our friends at GOG to make this version as modding-friendly as possible. 




    You might be wondering what's different about this release compared to the versions ava...

  • Baldur’s Gate 3 Modding Update

    Baldur’s Gate 3 from Larian Studios has exploded out of early access into full launch like an enraged dwarf through a bar door, and we are loving this game! With over 1 million mod downloads since launch (4 days ago), it’s clear the game is already a community favourite on Nexus Mods. Our Vortex game extension has been updated since going from Early Access to Full Launch, allowing for general mod management through Vortex (this will auto-update and require a restart of Vortex).

  • Morrowind May Modathon and Skywind Gameplay Preview

    It's the 21st anniversary of the release of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind today. If it were a person in the USA it would be old enough to buy a round of drinks to celebrate with us! While that might be a fantasy, we've got two Morrowind-themed announcements from the community to mark another year of the game that started it all here at Nexus Mods.

  • AI-Generated Content in Modding

    The recent advances in AI technology have been a hot topic in the community and the gaming industry as a whole over the past few months and we're getting more and more questions from you about how we feel about it. 

    TL:DR - AI-generated mod content is not against our rules, but may be removed if we receive a credible complaint from an affected creator/rights holder. If you're not the creator/rights holder, we ask that you don't submit file reports. 

    We've had a lot of d...

  • Design Focus Groups and Site Feedback

    Are you interested in helping shape the future of Nexus Mods?

    We're starting to roll out our new design system as we build new features and modernise the current site layout. A key part of this process will be to hear from you - the modding community - as we test out new designs and features. With this in mind, we're looking for volunteers to take part in a few focus groups that will collect invaluable feedback which is sure to influence how our site looks and functions as we look to...
