  • Official Vortex Beta Release

    In early 2017 we set out to develop an entirely new mod manager. It was our intention to create a mod manager that would be a suitable replacement for our ageing Nexus Mod Manager and combine its simplicity with a more powerful set of tools and features designed to make modding as accessible as possible to all types of modders - newcomers and veterans alike.

    We gave this project the name Vortex, and our lead developer Tannin has been working on it along with our new Vortex developer...

  • Download speed cap increase for Supporters and non-Adblockers

    Since 2007, Nexus Mods has had a download speed cap of 1MB a second on all downloads unless the user is a Premium Member. Starting this week, this download speed cap has been increased to 2MB a second if certain criteria are met.


    Why does Nexus Mods place a speed cap on downloads?
    The download speed cap on Nexus Mods ensures we can budget for and keep our substantial bandwidth bills within an acceptable price range and makes sure we aren't shocked (or utterly destroyed!) ...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Mod Author Donation System

    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.

  • Redesign Launch - Stage 2 in progress

    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.

    It's time for a Vortex development update!

    Since our last news post back in May we have setup a focus group of around 30 individuals who have been given access to an early build alpha of Vortex using a rudimentary design and UX flow. Tannin has been working with these users, taking on their feedback and patching up bugs that have been found over the past couple of months. At this stage, the core functionality is all done and now it's a matter of rounding off any rough ed...
