Videos Explain the Making of Skyrim Mod ‘Skywind’

Remember that phenomenal-looking mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that was remaking the world of Morrowind within Bethesda’s latest entry into the series? Work is still underway on the Skywind project, and a pair of new making-of videos will take you into the intricate process behind modding one game into another.

As the first video notes, the Skywind team has grown from just eight people at its start in early 2012 to some 70 members, including 30 dedicated voice actors.

It should be noted that Skywind is more than just a mod that puts Morrowind in the Skyrim engine with the help of the Creation Kit — instead, it’s as much an adaptation as a remake, with the modding team doing things like adding to the landscape to make it less barren, creating custom models for creatures and objects, composing new music, and more. Skywind bills itself as the most ambitious project ever undertaken by modders, and that seems like a pretty reasonable claim, judging by what’s on offer here.

Though it’s still being developed, you can actually download and play the Skywind mod in Skyrim right now.

Thanks, Kotaku.

This looks great, but another good idea would be a mod that creates Cyrodiil as it’s described in the Pocket Guide to the Empire. They made it sound awesome, but it was depicted in Oblivion as just a generic British medieval environment. It would be great to see it as it was originally described.

Hello,

I’m waiting this mod. Now I saw interesting thing while watching. In 6:06 minutes I saw a guy weared Roman Legionarii armor. Why they used Roman Army armor? They can use these armors: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Imperial_Chain_Armor#Imperial_Chain_Armor

I did not expect this to happen. It will break the magical atmosphere of the Morrowind!

Regards,
