Feature: Tread gently, for you tread on my cactus

New cactus mod for Stardew Valley has saved my chickens from a life of misery

Fear not, readers: I am still planning to turn my Stardew Valley farm into a battery chicken farm but progress has been slow on that front. Partly because I want to make it into a column called "Mother Cluckers" (which I, like your embarrassing uncle at every Sunday roast dinner, think is an extremely funny pun), but mostly because there are too many mods. And…

Best Red Dead Redemption 2 mods

Whenever I return to Red Dead Redemption 2, I find myself wanting to be released from the shackles of Rockstar’s design. Much like the Van der Linde gang, I’m looking for a place of my own, one that’s free from the concerns and constraints imposed by The Man. So I turn to mods, where I can make the west wild again.

Best Cities: Skylines mods

Cities: Skylines turned three a couple of weeks ago, meaning that it’s time to dust off our best Cities: Skylines mods list and see what wonderful community creations we can fill it with. On the day of its launch, Skylines already had pages and pages of buildings and complicated junctions waiting to be downloaded; now there are 1,000 of them, containing a ridiculous 145,948 mods.…

It’s got more than a few, too.Tweaks, fantastical overhauls, graphics improvements – modders have given the game plenty of love. And while some mods have fallen by the wayside, there’s still a…

Best Crusader Kings 2 mods

Crusader Kings 2 [official site] is (somehow) now five years old. Adam raised a glass to its humour and humanity last month in celebration of its half-decade anniversary, so I thought I'd delve into its modding community to mark the occasion too. Much like the digital empires depicted in-game, many of its mods have risen and fallen since my last visit, however the following list…

I think mods are great. And if you've been following the best mods lists I've been compiling for RPS over the last several months, I dare say you feel somewhat the same. Be it superficial tweaks, or highly ambitious overhauls, the work of creative hobbyists is often wonderful - and anything which is capable of breathing new life into our most treasured games is surely…

Best Cities: Skylines mods

Cities: Skylines [official site] is one of those games that if given the chance will swallow you whole.

It's a wonderful game once you do,…

Best mods of 2016

If you look beyond the celebrity death epidemic, killer clowns, political turmoil and the fact the Great British Bake Off parted ways with the BBC, 2016 has actually been a pretty great year. Well, it's at least been a pretty great year for videogames, and a pretty great year for game modifications.As you've probably spied elsewhere on the coveted pages of RPS of late, we're…

Best Football Manager 2017 mods so far

Sports Interactive's Football Manager series (once known as Championship Manager) is the Chosen One of sports management games. Rarely does its year-on-year instalment fall from Steam's top ten most played games list and while the latest edition, Football Manager 2017 [official site], isn't exactly brimming with new features, it has finely tuned almost all of its existing ones - to the point where this season's…

Best Dark Souls 3 Mods

Unless you've been hiding under a rock lizard for the past several months, you'll know the wonderfully twisted and challenging action role-player Dark Souls returned to our PC telly boxes earlier this year. With series director Hidetaka Miyazaki reinstated at the (knight) helm, the third installment isn't necessarily the best but is probably the most realised, and like its forerunners - and console cousins Demon's…

Best Starbound Mods

Feature: Make space greater again

Best Stellaris Mods

Stellaris [official site] is a wonderful sci-fi strategy endeavour but, like any game with so many concurrent moving parts, keen and inventive modders-cum-cosmonauts have dismantled it, inspected its innards, and put it all back together again with newer and shinier and quirkier parts so as to improve intergalactic space travel for one and all. In essence, they’re making space even greater.At the time of writing,…
