    Skyrim Nexus - One year on

    posted by Dark0ne Site News
    We’ve already got two articles up in the news looking back on Skyrim and celebrating its one year anniversary, but I just wanted to make a quick article celebrating one year of Skyrim mods on Skyrim Nexus, and to dissect the publically available site stats information to publicise some sensationalist figures. Because I kind of like doing it myself from time to time, and I thought I’d share my findings.

    By applying some simple maths to the stats we can work out some pretty interesting stuff. Using 365 days in a year, and 86,400 seconds in a day, lets get cracking.

    Since Skyrim’s release we’ve had over 2.17 million new members join the Nexus network. While Skyrim can’t take credit for all those registrations, it can take credit for a large proportion of them. Similarly, many people forget that the Creation Kit didn’t actually come out until 3 months after the release of Skyrim, in February 2012, so we’ve only had 9 months of CK goodness so far. So no folks, Skyrim modding certainly isn’t dying. Frankly I think the best is yet to come.
