We all know Skyrim Modders love trying to prove that they can keep Skyrim up with next-gen games. Now that we are finally starting to learn more about Starfield, I predict we will see at least some attempt in this community to backport advancements and features Bethesda makes for Starfield. Obviously I'm not talking about starship combat, but instead just the things that would be compatible with Skyrim. Such as a Starfield like skill-tree system where you select a skill then you need to perform specific challenges to rank up that skill. Or perhaps a Starfield like trait system where you have optional perks in character creation that come with permanent disadvantages. Modders love graphics stuff, so it won't surprise me if modders try to mod character creation models and textures to look like Starfield's.


As we learn more and more about Starfield, modders will have more and more inspiration to draw from. But I'm sure that's also true for Bethesda. Do you think they will carry over Starfield's skill system over to ES6? Do you think modders are going to be crazy enough to try to remake Skyrim and Fallout 4 in Starfield's engine for some reason?

That trait system is just lifted from Fallout anyway, so if no one has implemented it yet in Skyrim, it seems unlikely they'll suddenly want to do it now.
