Gaming Today Civ VI Mod Tools & Workshop Support confirmed

While Civilization VI currently has no official mod support or tools available currently, Firaxis confirmed this past week that these will be coming to the game in the future - but there's no clue as to when this might be.

Gaming Today Skyrim Script Extender coming to Special Edition

Skyrim Special Edition, while a solid free update for a game over 5 years old, caused some ripples among the modding scene with it's distinct lack of mod support, especially those that rely on SKSE - thankfully, a new 64 bit version compatible with Special Edition is coming. It didn't come as much of a surprise that Special Edition was going to break a lost...

 

Gaming Today Mod tools released for COD: Black Ops III

Despite Infinite Warfare's release coming in a little over a month's time, Treyarch are showing that they haven't forgotten about Black Ops III just yet: today's new update, version 15.1, releases mod tools into general availability for the first time.

Gaming Today New Witcher 3 tool fixes compatibility for older mods

More commonly these days, games release major patches and updates post-release, to fix bugs and add new content. Often this can break mods and stop them from working unless the author updates the mod. The Witcher 3 was no exception, but now a new tool promises to allow older mods to work once again. The tool, created by modder AeroHD, allows you to update...

 

Gaming Today Crusader Kings II Patch Brings Massive Performance Boost

Paradox Interactive has a history of post-launch support(though their DLC model leaves much to be desired, but that's for another article altogether). Their historical feudal murder-reign simulator, Crusader Kings II, is no different. This previous week saw the release of patch 2.6.0, along with the new Reaper's Due DLC. While the DLC itself has been positi...

Gaming Today Texturelicious - Dark Souls III Tool Lets You Replace Textures

Dark Souls III modder S17L has released a tool allowing you to dump and replace textures from the game, thus changing the appearances of items and environments for better (or worse).  The tool, called iGP11, is a project in development and its creator hopes to allow users to apply custom pixel and vertex shaders in the future without affecting the UI as a w...

 

Gaming Today Fallout 4 Unofficial Patch In Trouble

More often than not, mods are at the mercy of the game developers; a slight change in the engine code, or how the game handles certain assets, can break some of the big mods. That appears to have happened to one of the more popular mods for Fallout 4, the Unofficial Patch. The mod, which fixes a slew of problems and glitches that Bethesda haven't had time o...

Gaming Today Nuclear Throne mod enables online co-op!

If you haven't played Nuclear Throne yet, you should: it's good, honest, post apocalyptic roguelike mutant fun. The only problem with the game is that, while co-op has always been a feature for local players, you could never play online: until now! Modder YellowAfterlife's new mod, Nuclear Throne Together, brings online co-op to the game, and despite revers...

Gaming Today Mod Highlight: Dark Souls 3 UI for original game

While the original Dark Souls was an awesome, if not brutally terrifying game, there is one thing most fans will agree on; it's HUD is, well, not very good. Enter this wonderful mod that brings the UI for Dark Souls 3 to the original game! This one comes from modder Khonziel, and adds a much needed replacement interface, inspired by the one from Dark Souls...

 

Gaming Today Top 5 Total War: Warhammer Utility Mods Released

Total War games have always been known for their capability to modify and develop into something arguably better, or into something completely different, take Third Age Total War for example. Total War: Warhammer is no different and that can be seen by the variety of mods currently in development and those that have already been released. Below is a list o...

 

Gaming Today Is DOOM's SnapMap a replacement for mods?

While DOOM's single player campaign is receiving high critical acclaim, it's fair to say that the multiplayer section of the game is falling somewhat short of expectations.
