We saw the biggest collections of entries from Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord (18.5%) and Skyrim Special Edition (17.4%) followed by Fallout 4, Skyrim, Monster Hunter: World and Stardew Valley. It's great to see that mod authors for a wide range of games are getting involved.
Before I reveal the winners, I'd like to showcase some of the mods you may have missed during Week 1 of the event.
Xorberax's Cut Through Everyone - Xorberax - Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord
If you've been playing Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord this week, there's a very good chance you're already using this mod. "Cut Through Everyone" was the most popular entry by far, with almost twice as many downloads as the next closest mod. It also racked up over 700 endorsements which shows that the community really love this mod!
Allows weapons to cut through multiple units, while considering armor and weapon types.
Ice Wind Spell (U7) - Ebediam - Blade & Sorcery
We're still eagerly awaiting U8 of Blade & Sorcery - which will add new spells and make it much easier to create your own custom ones - but while KospY continues to work his magic with the official release, you should definitely give this spell a try. See if you can find creative ways to combine Ice and Lightning to take down multiple enemies at once! In related news, Blade & Sorcery hit 5 million downloads this month and earned a spot on the Nexus Mods homepage, overtaking Witcher 2.
Unlock a powerful new spell! Summon an icy wind that freezes enemies and slows (or completely stops) their movement. Also you can imbue your weapon!
Pandorable's Warrior Women - Pandorable - Skyrim Special Edition
Pandorable delivers another great overhaul to two of the ladies in Skyrim Special Edition and with a mod installer allowing you to select different options, you'll be able to tweak them to suit your own preferences.
A visual overhaul of Mjoll the Lioness and Uthgerd the Unbroken.
Simplified Archery - WileCoyote68 - Kingdom Come Deliverance
The archery mechanics of Kingdom Come Deliverance were one of my personal pet-peeves - especially coming from being a Skyrim stealth archer - so any mod intended to improve on that is always welcome. WileCoyote68 uploaded a whole bunch of mods during the week so be sure to check out their other work.
Brought some existing mods together and modified a couples of other values which i personally used for better experience.
Moe the Vigilante - Duffhause - The Simpsons: Hit & Run
The Simpsons: Hit & Run has a special significance to me, as it was one of my favourite games on the PlayStation 2 when I was younger. Seeing the first mods for it being shared on Nexus Mods during the event did get me a little excited, especially when it's a fully fleshed out level with custom voiced characters and a new story!
Play as Moe Syzlak and save Springfield from the mafia who are poisoning Springfield's beer supply with nuclear waste
