Skyrim Alternate Start Modder Removing All Of His Work From Nexus Mods
Notable Skyrim and Fallout 4 modder Arthmoor, known for creating Skyrim's Alternate Start mod, is removing all of their work from Nexus Mods.
A renowned Elder Scrolls V: Skyrimand Fallout 4modder is removing all of their work from Nexus Mods. Both of the Bethesda Game Studios role-playing games are known for their wealth of fan-made modifications and expansions. Nexus Mods is a particularly popular mod distribution website where creators can upload their work for others to download and enjoy.
While Nexus Mods is a go-to mod resource for many gamers, the website has recently made headlines for implementing some divisive new rules and mandates. Giftfish, a prominent modder of Bioware's Mass Effect trilogy, recently removed their work from Nexus Mods shortly after the release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition. The well-known creator's decision was prompted by the revelation that Nexus Mods would not prevent other users from recreating his work. Mass Effect Legendary Edition's code is substantially different from the original version of the trilogy, and so it is impossible to simply transfer older mods into the remastered games. This means that modders would need to completely recreate Giftfish's mods in order to upload them to Nexus Mods, a practice that is completely authorized by the website. This lack of protection for his work led to Giftfish leaving the site and taking his mods with him. Shortly afterwards, Nexus Mods implemented a new policy preventing creators from deleting their work after it is archived on the site. This new "Collections" system went into effect on August 5.

As reported by PC Gamer, renowned Skyrim and Fallout 4 modder Arthmoor has requested that all of his work be removed from Nexus Mods as a response to the new "Collections" system. Arthmoor is perhaps most well-known for the Skyrim Alternate Start mod, which allows players to skip the game's lengthy introduction level when creating a new character. Other popular works include The Paarthurnax Dilemma, which expands on a short quest, and the Unofficial Skyrim Patch. Disagreements with Nexus Mods' new archive policy seem to be the reason for Arthmoor's departure, but all of the creator's work can still be found on AFK Mods as well as Bethesda.net Mods.
While the internet has no shortage of Skyrim mods, some of these works manage to grow beyond their humble origins. The newly-released adventure game The Forgotten City, developed by Modern Storyteller, actually began its life as a popular mod for Skyrim. The murder mystery mod, originally released back in 2015, was known for featuring complex puzzles and multiple different endings depending on player actions. The full version of The Forgotten City expands this premise by introducing an ancient Roman setting and expanding the game's puzzles and story.
Nexus Mods' new "Collections" system is predictably divisive amongst modders, as the policy effectively removes their ownership over their own creations. Modders have the right to upload and take down mods as they please, and creators like Arthmoor are clearly uncomfortable with releasing control over their own hard work and effort. While games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 continue to lose mods, it remains to be seen whether Nexus Mods will respond to this negative reception of the Collections policy.

The NoSkyrim mod has been banned from Nexus Mods
NoSkyrim is a mod by ThatLittleCommie that prevents you from playing Skyrim. You click the button, nothing happens. That's it. That's the mod. As the description explains, "Now with NoSkyrim, instead of being able to start a new game like most skyrim players, you just can't". Helpfully, it "Also works with alternate start". If you've got a serious Skyrim habit you'd like to break, NoSkyrim could be the solution to your problem.
Except you can no longer download it from Nexus Mods. It was deleted from the popular site for perhaps obvious reasons, but ThatLittleCommie refuses to give up. There's a petition on change.org to Get NoSkyrim Put Back on the Nexus, a subreddit called SaveNoSkyrim to raise awareness for the cause, and in the meantime you can download NoSkyrim from the NSFW modsite LoversLab, where it has already been downloaded over 60 times.
Be careful, though. As one commenter noted, "I still messed up my load order somehow."
If you would actually like to play Skyrim, I suppose that's an option too. In that case, here are the best Skyrim mods and the best Skyrim Special Edition mods.

NoSkyrim Is A Skyrim Mod For People Who Don't Want To Play Skyrim
By Rhiannon Bevan
NoSkyrim mod was only out for two days before being removed from Nexus Mods.
Have you ever found yourself playing your 1000 mod set up of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and thought, "man, I really wish I could stop playing this." Well, today's your lucky day, because now there's a mod for that too.
The NoSkyrim mod does just what the name suggests: stops you from playing Skyrim. When you boot it up to start a new game, it simply won't let you. However, while the mod has been a hit on Reddit, Nexus Mods wasn't as keen on the joke, and has already taken it down.

Despite this, the mod's creator seems incredibly proud of this accomplishment. Announcing NoSkyrim in r/skyrimmods, they said: "IT HAPPENED, after a year of me sitting on my ass I did something productive, and made NoSkyrim THE GREATEST MOD ON THE NEXUS." Answering the question on everyone's minds, they further explained the mod, "It does what you think it does, make it impossible to play the actual game. So now when you hit new game, instead of playing the fucking game, you just don't."
The feedback appears to be overwhelmingly positive. In the replies, danieln1212 says, "So instead of downloading 200 mods and making Skyrim not launch I can now do it with only one, what an efficient mod." Many in the replies are going along with the joke, leaving comments such as: "After downloading this mod, I was still able to play Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch. Can you fix this bug, please?"
Upon hearing the news that NoSkyrim had been removed from Nexus Mods, the creator started a petition for it to be reinstated. They've even started a new subreddit, r/savenoskyrim, where fans make passionate pleas for its return, such as: "Since this mod was taken down the game has been literally playable! Why would the nexus staff do this!"
It remains to be seen if Nexus Mods is moved by these requests.

Skyrim Modder who Created the Open Cities Add-on is Pulling Their Work from Nexus Mods
By Andrew Paul Heaton
Arthmoor, a popular Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim modder who made Open Cities and Alternate Start, posts about how they want their mods removing.
Perhaps one of the best things about Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, and the reason it's still going strong to this day, is the modding community. Some modifications tweak the graphics, add new quests or weapons, or improve the third-person perspective to make Skyrim a more enjoyable experience. However, there are some people in the community who are unhappy with Nexus Mods, one of the most used sites for fan-made add-ons, and one of the most popular modders has expressed a desire to distance themselves from the website.
Posting to Nexus Mods recently, Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim user Arthmoor has decided that they want to have their files removed from the database after the site implemented a change in one of its policy. The post goes on to say that they have put a request in to have most of their modifications deleted, but says that they will still be available on other websites. The user also insists that none of their mods be re-uploaded by other users after they're deleted, either on Nexus or any other modding website.

The decision relates to a new policy that Nexus Mods announced last month. The policy states that modders on the site would no longer be able to delete their own files. Instead, files would be able to be archived but can't be taken off the site by the user. This change is in conjunction with a 2019 project that Nexus referred to as "collections" which is yet to be implemented but is supposed to be a way of making it less burdensome for users if mods are all part of a single collection. Generally, the modding community has not taken kindly to the new policy.
While one modder requesting to have their files removed may not sound like a big deal, Arthmoor is well-versed in creating add-ons for Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, having been involved in making mods for fifteen years. One of the mods they are known for is Open Cities which removes loading screens when entering or exiting a city in the game and arguably make it a much more immersive experience. Arthmoor also created Alternate Start - Live Another Life, which removes the long introduction for players who just went to get stuck in.
Nexus Mods also revealed it was changing its premiums memberships. Saying that lifetime memberships were no longer sustainable for the site, a recent post said they would be removed in favor of a simpler monthly or yearly subscription package. This new change was implemented on August 3.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is available now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Mod Designed To Make Skyrim Unplayable Banned For Same Reason
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a popular game that millions of people are still playing a decade after it was first released. And thanks to mods and user-created content, some have dedicated years of their lives to playing this game. Bethesda’s insistence on re-releasing the iconic RPG likely isn’t helping anyone escape Skyrim’s vice grip, either. So one modder created a way out for those unable to stop playing. The mod, NoSkyrim, makes the Bethesda RPG unplayable once installed.
Made by ThatLittleCommie, that’s literally all the admittedly silly mod does. It doesn’t add extra characters, new weapons, or copyright infringing content like lightsabers or Thomas the Tank Engine. You install it and after that, you can no longer play Skyrim. It just crashes instead. Here’s how the mod’s creator describes the mod.
“Did you ever feel like the game which you spent your hard-earned money on, should be removed and be unplayable, well so did I. Now with NoSkyrim, instead of being able to start a new game like most Skyrim players, you just can’t.”

The mod was originally uploaded to popular modding site Nexus Mods. But it has since been removed for unclear — but probably easy to guess — reasons. I’d bet a mod that simply breaks Skyrim and makes it impossible to play isn’t something the folks running the site want on their mod depository. Kotaku has reached out to Nexus Mods about the removal and if NoSkyrim will ever return.

Currently, if you want to download this silly mod you can find it over at LoversLab.com, which is a uh… more adult modding site. It seems the folks at LoversLab don’t care if a Skyrim mod breaks the game and renders it unplayable.
As spotted by PCGamer, the mod currently has a Change.org petition that folks can sign to support it being readded to Nexus Mods. As of this writing, it has nearly 350 signatures. Meanwhile, a subreddit dedicated to the mod and its return to the Nexus site has also popped up. It has just over 260 members. The top post is a smiling image of Todd Howard, Bethesda’s director, and executive producer. Other posts include people lamenting the mod’s removal as it was the only thing keeping them from playing the decade-old open-world RPG. (These posts are jokes, if you hadn’t figured it out yet.)
For now, it seems NoSkyrim will not return to Nexus Mods. It’s a sad day for folks unable to uninstall a video game or who have no self-control. Meanwhile, Bethesda is still announcing ports of Skyrim in 2021. I wonder if the latest port will work (or cease to work) with the NoSkyrim mod?

Skyrim mod that stops you playing Skyrim has been removed from Nexus Mods
Out of all the Skyrim mods out there, one that makes the game literally unplayable is an odd one and has been removed from mod site Nexus Mods.
NoSkyrim, a mod by ThatLittleCommie, was designed to help kick an addiction to Skyrim. As PC Gamer explains, when those who have downloaded the mod try to access the game, nothing happens. The description of the now-deleted Nexus Mods listing apparently read: “Now with NoSkyrim, instead of being able to start a new game like most Skyrim players, you just can't.”
Although it's not a complete surprise that this mod was removed from the site, it is surprising how many Skyrim fans aren’t happy about it. The mod’s removal has sparked a number of online movements including a change.org petition titled 'Get NoSkyrim Put Back on The Nexus', as well as a dedicated subreddit named 'Save NoSkyrim', which has amassed more than 300 members in just three days.
In the petition, it’s mentioned that the reasoning for the mod’s removal came down to how it "purposely bugs out the game," but at time of writing more than 450 players think that's not a good enough reason to have taken the mod down.
Given that the mod doesn't actually allow you to play the game, its removal might not come as too much of a surprise, but it does come at an interesting time for the platform. NexusMods is currently in the process of preventing users from deleting their uploads, prompting one prolific modder to remove all of their work from the platform in protest.
This isn't the only mod popular with Skyrim players. Others that have caught our attention recently include one which gives the Dovahkiin a Breath of the Wild-style paraglider, The Forgotten City mod which turns Skyrim into a Roman time loop mystery, and the much needed Skyrim mod that allows you to pet the dog.
