Elder Scrolls Online to Support Player-Made Add-Ons
Perhaps the loveliest part of World of Warcraft is that the players can make their own add-ons. It’s not a system many MMOs follow, though, as it opens up a massive can of worms in regards to security and balance.
That’s a can Bethesda seems willing to pop the top on, though. After all, it’s why people usually buy the PC editions of the Elder Scrolls games. Players will be able to make their own UI add-ons for The Elder Scrolls Online, and those familiar with the process of creating an add-on in WoW will be glad to know it even uses the same language: Lua. While I’m sure there will be the standard array of combat-oriented add-ons – it’s a fair bet that a TESO-specific edition of Healbot will be created lickety-split – my real interest is in all those world-related quality of life mods: programs like Gatherer or Auctioneer.
