    What is happening?

  • Get To Know: Iluviel

    In addition to our modder spotlights and mod author interviews, we'll be starting a new series which we hope you'll all enjoy. As I mentioned in my introduction interview, we want to be more transparent and open with you all, and for you to get to know us all a little more. So we sat down and thought, what would be a great way to do this? To give a more personal insight into us as a company and the people who work here that make Nexus Mods what it is, whilst feeling more connected as a communit...

  • Taking a Short Rest - Aetherpoint

    Baldur’s Gate 3 needs no introduction. As it was probably everyone's Game of the Year of 2023 (including ours). The game went from being the 51st-ranked game on our site while it was in early access to 9th by January 2024. The modding scene has exploded, so we thought it was about time we interviewed a BG3 mod author.

    On that note, it is with great pleasure that Aetherpoint has agreed to be our first mod author interviewee, and we couldn’t be more thankful for her taking the tim...

  • Donation Points are changing

    We're changing how we reward mod authors in our community through our Donation Points system. DP earned from April 2024 onwards will be calculated using a new algorithm intended to distribute the pool of points more fairly to mod authors who make great content for the community. While we get the details ironed out, you won't see the usual reports on your wallet page at the end of each month for a little while. Don't worry though, the system isn't going anywhere and we're still putting the same a...
