From a substantial upgrade to the Witcher 3 game extension, and general performance boosts and enhancements, to a new mod reporting system that is designed to help mod authors and users alike troubleshoot any issues, these are the main updates this month.

  • Important Security Notice

    What has happened?

    In the very early morning of 8th November 2019 we noticed suspicious activity by a potentially malicious third party actor against our services. Using an exploit in our legacy codebase, our logs confirm that they accessed a small number of user records from the old user service.

    Even though we were able to secure the endpoint as soon as we discovered the exploit, as a measure of security, we are informing all of you, as we cannot rule out that further a...

  • What's new in Vortex 1.1?

    It doesn't feel like it's been long since we officially launched Vortex - our new mod manager - back in July but that was 4 months ago!

  • Donation Points Stats and No Ads for Mod Authors

    It has now been well over a year since we launched our mod author rewards program - the Donation Points system - intended to give back to the very people who spend their time creating the mods we all enjoy and love.

  • Vortex 1.0 Release

    Back towards the end of 2016 we began work on a new mod manager, Vortex, to replace the ageing Nexus Mod Manager. Unfortunately, we considered this change a necessary act considering the mess that NMM was (and still is) in.

    When we first started work on Vortex we were very aware that, over the 6 years that we worked on Nexus Mod Manager, it remained in a state of permanent beta which reflected our lack of confidence in the software's ability to remain stable and provide a solid exper...

  • Issues with Pay Pal payments over the past couple of weeks

    We've noticed an increase in support tickets recently related to payments failing when attempting to purchase Supporter or Premium Membership on the site. This issue seems to have only affected a small subset of people who have purchased membership through Pay Pal, but it's important I get the word out so these users are not out of pocket or out of membership they legitimately paid for on the site.

    The issue was caused by a communication error between Pay Pal's services and our servi...

    Last month marked the launch of the fifth annual Morrowind May Modathon Modding Competition celebrating the 17th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and we are happy to say that the event has been a great success with a whopping ~230 new mods being uploaded by ~80 individual modders - veterans and newcomers alike!

  • Turning off the legacy API

    Following the announcement 3 months ago, today is the day we'll be turning off our legacy modding API. This system has been fully replaced by the new Nexus Mods API and is therefore redundant.

    What does this mean?
    Any applications using this service will no longer be able to log in, retrieve mod information or handle downloads from our site. We've been working with the developers who maintain some of the most popular modding tools to help them make the transition to the new API...

Armed with that and having now filled our UI/UX designer position at the Nexus Mods office, our designer has been tasked with going through the current site layout and looking for ways it can be improved.

  • 2018 in review and 2019 in the view

    I'm late. I know, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. It's already the middle of February and I haven't done my usual yearly keyboard bashing session where I smash out a semi-coherent review of the previous year and talk about what we hope to get done in this year. Truth be told, I wasn't sure if anyone really wanted to read through my banal twitterings or not and whether I would do this, so let me know at the end if my time (and yours) was worth it.


    2018 in numbers

    In short, Nex...
