    that actually looks really nice? Is it hard to create something for the game. I want to make a dog companion, but not the lame grey log haired nasty one.

    I use Autodesk Maya along with Autodesk Mudbox for the majority of my work, photoshop i use for compositing layers and getting them ready for final textures,

    another quick texture test, going to replace the gibberish there with Deadric Symbols that spell out Dovahkiin across the blade, then ill darken the red further and add a glow map for when its in game.

    As for the Video above I did the same thing to Fallout New Vegas except i had Brother Hood of Steel vs the Enclave in a 75 man vs 75 man battle etc that looks to be about the same size, the modder in the video used and it wasnt as in depth aka didnt use it to make videos simply made it for the lulz of a huge battle where as who ever did the battle above had alot of free time to record the needed shots, overall its a damn good video, would rather see it as an actual playable mod tho.

    Man that was awesome!

    The work that went into that was something else.

    If only Bethesda added multicore support and perhaps AI on GPU things like that could actually happen.

    And I would love it\!

    better water flow shader (nice)
    horse mounted combat
    dragon mount
    Spears

    adopt a kid (pedobear.jpg)
    Spears
    build your own home
    Spell combo (different spells create new effect)
    Goblins

    That video is amazing, I was expecting to see a few great ideas, but almost every single one of them I just kept thinking, "that should be in the game". Hopefully more see this video and just make those additions.

    Can all of you who play Skyrim add me on Steam please? I'm blackpanther75

    The Steam Workshop has got an interesting feature where you can see which are your friends' preferred mods, and which are the mods created by your friends.

    Yeah saw that....Good idea. I'm same nick.

    I am loving the workshop. So easy and simply the best way to get mods, epsecially all the minor ones such as those lessening the weight of dragon bones/scales and potions.

    The best mod I found so far was that which removes the shivering-concentric-circle shadows while inside Breezehome.

    Which town has Breezehome? I only own Solitude and Markarth at present. Didn't bother with White Run as didn't have much gold back then.

    Whiterun, it's one of the cheapest if I remember correctly. I had that problem with the concentric-circle shadows in Breezehome, and also in a couple of interior shops in Solitude. I even tested the vanilla game and I get the most awful shadows only in those places.

    It's called "Shadow Striping Fix" on the Steam Workshop. And it's created by dWILLb.

    Holy crap! why can't we have all of those mods! I hope the mod community makes some of those, i'm trying to learn how to use the CK but every time I do something I break my game :(

    Also I how do you search for mods on the workshop, like can you type in a mod title or do you have to go though all of the pages to find it.

    This seems to be the downfall of the steamworkshop in it's current state.
    No search function by tet from what I can see and downloading a mod is confusing for someone new to it as you can not see any obvious download button.
    Instead yu click the subscribe button which downloads the mod and also whenever you launch Skyrim, the mods you 'Subscribed' to will be scanned to see if they are the latest version which I can see as a potential problem if the modder updates his mod to a borked version.

    eh, the serious modders will be elsewhere as well, if not solely. I'll watch there, and dig thru :)

    You can link them if you have url's turned on for Steam, or if you browser in your internet browser.

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=8096

    Theres a sample one, but I'm not going to dig through all the Steam workshop since can't search by name and its new so most popular files is all random.
