  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 2022 in Review - Mods, Stats, and Hats

    It's mid February and I know what you're thinking: "this would be the perfect time for a year in review post for 2022". Well, say no more! 

    2022 was a huge year for our community and site. Not only did we see tremendous growth regarding new modders joining our community, mod uploads, and overall downloads, but the Nexus Mods Team itself has grown significantly as well.

    On the backend, we've completed several important operations, most notably migrating a lot of our servi...

  • 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...

  • Upcoming maintenance: 9 January 2023

    On 9 January 2023 we will be performing scheduled maintenance which will mean the entire site as well as our forums will be unavailable for a time. Please note that this will also affect the functionality of mod managers - downloads, updates, endorsements etc. (anything that requires interaction with our website and API). As we will be migrating our database to an upgraded system, we aim for this process to take several hours, but to be on the safe side please expect the site to be down for some...

  • Whats new in Collections?

    When we originally made Collections publicly available, we knew that we still had a lot we wanted to improve on. Since then, we’ve been listening to your feedback and working hard on new features and improvements. Here are some of the changes that are going live this week.


    Bug Reports Feature

    We’ve built a new bug reporting feature from scratch, allowing Nexus Mods members to raise bugs on Collections for the Curator’s attention.

  • What's new in Vortex 1.6?

    Vortex 1.6 was released into the wild a few days ago, shipping with the latest batch of new features, UI improvements and a boatload of bug fixes. Here's a rundown of what's new in the latest version.



    Dashboard improvements

    In the previous version of Vortex, it was a bit too easy to accidentally mess up your dashboard layout by clicking and dragging in the wrong place or dismissing a dashlet. We've remedied this by adding a dedicated "Customise my dashboard"...

  • Flag mods and us (and you)

    Recently there's been some silly drama on our site that was sparked by someone uploading a mod for Spider-Man Remastered. The mod replaced the very few Pride flags the game actually has with the already prevalent USA flag texture from the game. The mod was removed from Nexus Mods and the author was banned.

    To address the banning, which is what a lot of people want to focus on, the mod was uploaded by a sock puppet account (i.e. a newly made account by someone who already has an accou...

  • Reminder: Donation Options and Guidelines

    Without mod authors sharing their creations our modding community wouldn’t exist. As you know, many mod authors put countless hours into their mods, maintaining documentation for users, and supporting their mods. It’s because of this fact that, over the years, we’ve added a number of ways for users to say “thank you” by donating to their favourite mod author - be it through our mod rewards system, the donation options we provide (donation button on the mod page), or by allowing mod aut...

  • Donation Drive for Ukraine - Update

    Two weeks ago, we launched a donation drive to raise funds and support the Red Cross in its mission to bring medical aid to the people of Ukraine suffering the consequences of an unprovoked attack on their country. 

    We’re very happy to say that the community came out strong in support of Ukraine raising over £6,500 (~$8,474) in direct donations, with some individual donations as high as $100 or even $1,000 - which is just incredible! Thank you so much for your donations.

  • Donation Drive to help Victims of War in Ukraine

    I’m sure you’re all aware of the horrible assault on Ukraine that started on 24 February. Along with the leadership and people of the vast majority of countries in the world, we strongly condemn this unprovoked attack on another sovereign nation at the orders of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

    At this moment the people of Ukraine are suffering the consequences of Putin’s war of aggression which is bringing nothing but death, destruction, and displacement to countless familie...

  • Mods, Stats, Rewards - The last year at Nexus Mods

    Happy (belated) new year everyone! For most people around the world, 2021 was still very much a year affected by the pandemic, so it probably won't make its way into any "Top 10 Best Years Ever" lists anytime soon. Looking at our site usage data and overall statistics, however, 2021 was indeed a very good year in terms of site growth. We're happy to say we're now serving more users and hosting more mods for many more games!

    A significant project we completed in 2021 was the total ove...
