Feature: Apples are awesome though?

Modding Stardew Valley to make it feel like Animal Crossing

I am not myself an Animal Crossing fan (or a "Crossie", as I believe they like to be called), but I know the game is big news at the moment, because approximately the entire rest of the RPS staff have been going on about it. They're all at it, and it's like people talking in a secret language I don't understand. Someone please buy and…

This pacifist mod lets you hug all of Stardew Valley’s monsters

Alright folks, Stardew Valley just wasn't pleasant enough. The animals are cute, the spouses are cute, and even the monsters are cute. But you do have to kill the monsters and that is decidedly not cute. You've got to whack them with increasingly edgy swords as you dive deeper into the mines beneath the mountain. Who are you to come into the monsters' territory and smack…

Feature: Graphics mods, new NPCs and massive overhauls

The best Skyrim mods in 2020

The best Skyrim mods let you tweak or overhaul nearly every part of the game. There are options available whether you want to improve graphics, make your companions better company, turn the dragons into something silly, or play a whole new adventure as good as the original story. It's been nine years, but Skyrim modding shows no signs of slowing down. Below you'll find our…

Modder Superior – Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

No matter what may happen to Star Wars, we'll always have lightsabers. That, and loads of great games. Among the best to grace the PC is the Jedi Knight series, the last in its line being Raven's Jedi Academy. It may owe some of its longevity as a multiplayer staple to its engine, a heavily modified Quake 3 codebase, and it can definitely chalk up…

Feature: The Dark Souls of mod columns

Modder Superior – Dark Souls Trilogy Remixed

Dark Souls modders are forged in the flames of adversity. While mostly limited to technical improvements (such as Durante's fixes for the wonky original PC port) and small texture packs, the past few years have brought about a whole new genre of Souls mods for all three games. While limited in what can be added to the trilogy (though breakthroughs are being made on that…

This Half-Life mod ran the dialogue and signs through Google Translate until they became nonsense

You know the cyberjape of running text back and forth through Google Translate in different languages until it comes out as wacky nonsense? Someone has done to that Half-Life. The new mod Half-Life: Google Translate Edition has garbled Valve's game, from changing sign textures through to recording new lines of dialogue. I played a bit (and recorded a wee video) and yeah, I still find…

Play The Elder Scrolls: Arena as a distressingly muscular Garfield

I won't blame you if you don't click on this post. The image is horrifying—I know. If you pop on in here I promise I'll try to teach you a thing or so about Khajiit morphology using this ridiculous mod for The Elder Scrolls: Arena. If you can't see it for any reason, it's the head of Garfield, the 1978 version of the comic book character,…

Get in the bin, Geralt, and play The Witcher 3 as Mads Mikkelsen

Geralt's been having quite the romp since his new TV show popped up on Netflix. With the help of modders, he's gone and invaded just about every RPG in the last couple months. Alright then, while he's out slaying monsters in everyone else's games, this modder has ousted him from The Witcher 3, replacing the White Wolf with a different game man face. Mads Mikkelsen…

Dwarf simulation King Under The Mountain adds mod support

King Under The Mountain is a dwarven society simulation game that immediately gives away its Dwarf Fortress inspiration. It's currently still in early access and has just added support for player-made mods. The main game is actually built as a game engine with a "base game" mod applied to it, according to Rocket Jump Technology. The plan is for absolutely anything in the game to…

This cute Stardew Valley mod adds Valentine letters from villagers

I've got over 200 hours in just regular, fresh out of the box Stardew Valley. I could probably keep on for another 200 without ever modding the game, but I've had my eye out lately for mods that would spruce up my I-don't-remember-how-manyth farm. Be My Valentine by Taskmaster on Nexus Mods is a small one, but just in time for actual Valentine's Day which…

Feature: Toss a mod to your Witcher

Best The Witcher 3 mods

Almost five years and a surprisingly good TV series later, and The Witcher 3 is still going strong; a surprising turn of events given how static the game has remained these past few years. Beyond a round of free DLC and two excellent expansions, Geralt Of Rivia's grand quest to become a cool step-dad and maybe settle down at a vineyard in the south of…

Rocket League modders are making prop hunt, pool, and more weird and wonderful things

Football is so 12th Century. Thank God for Rocket League, which took football and transformed it into flying rocket car daftness. The onward march of human progress didn't stop there, however. Modders have since transformed Rocket League into flight combat sims, obstacle courses, and Quidditch. It's all impressive, but I'm most enamoured with the work of pro player "Lethamyr", who moonlights as a modder turning…

Attend Hogwarts with your chums in this Minecraft mod

Famous stick-wielding orphan Harry Potter has earned himself another full-fledged RPG, this time courtesy of Minecraft modding team The Floo Network. Building on an impressively detailed Hogwarts map from five years ago, the team have since filled it with spells, adventures and secrets. You go to lessons, complete quests, and explore extensive recreations of Potterland, including Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, and Westminster. The trailer briefly made…

The Skywind project may want your help even if you have no experience

For several years now, a group of volunteer modders called The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project have been working on Skywind, a standalone mod recreating Morrowind using Skyrim's Creation Kit. The Skywind team posted a rare development video today giving a status update on the project wrapped in a callout for new volunteers in several disciplines with all levels of experience.

Feature: Turns out you CAN go home again

Modder Superior – Homeworld Remastered Collection

Few games have aged as gracefully as Homeworld. Even without modern enhancements, Relic's 1999 space opera RTS is still a looker, carried by sharp ship designs, low-fi but evocative audio and some gorgeous nebula backdrops. That's not to say there isn't room for improvement; between Gearbox's Homeworld Remastered Collection and a fresh wave of interest in the upcoming sequel, modders have been returning to their…

Skyrim grandma Shirley Curry will follow you around Tamriel soon

Shirley Curry is better known online as the "Skyrim grandma" who begins her YouTube videos with a genial "good morning grandkids" before setting out on adventures in Tamriel. Curry has become dear to enough of her fans that a petition to have her added to The Elder Scrolls 6 helped prompt Bethesda to announce they would do just that. A new Elder Scrolls game is…

The Toss A Coin To Your Witcher song has been modded into The Witcher 1, naturally

Since Netflix's Witcher series was released last month, there's one particular part of the show that has followed me around the internet like a certain very persistent bard. Jaskier (who you know as Dandelion in CD Projekt RED's Witcher games) sings a silly song at the end of episode two about Geralt's exploits. The lyrics are, frankly, corny. It is not a masterpiece. But boy…

This Red Dead Redemption 2 modder keeps giving Arthur superpowers

The wild west in Red Dead Redemption 2 is great and all but what if it were wilder? What if Arthur Morgan were a firebender? Or had skills more commonly found at a D&D table? What if he just emitted light like some deep sea fish? The RDR2 modding scene is still getting on its feet but creators have done plenty of silly things like…

RedM will let you turn Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode into a roleplaying Wild West

Red Dead Redemption 2 Online should be getting a nice upgrade after the release of RedM, a framework mod that allows players to run their own modded servers. It's from the same developers who made Grand Theft Auto V Online's FiveM mod, the backdoor responsible for those Twitch-ruling GTA streams where people roleplay as cops, criminals, communists, and more. The prospect of expanding Rockstar's Wild…
