This was a very strong week for Bethesda titles, with Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition making up the largest shares. Overall however, Bannerlord still comes out on top with 17.4% of the 1,221 entries across the entire event.
Here are my "stand out" mods for the final week of the event, the list of winners can be found at the bottom of the article.
Responsive Soldiers? - Kahchow - Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord
Do you find it a little awkward that your armies follow your commands silently in Bannerlord? Well look no further than this mod. Your units will now respond to move orders and the command to charge for a far more immersive combat experience.
Makes your troops verbally respond when given orders. No more awkward silent charges!
Darth Maul - Shadow Hunter - AlexPo21 - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
When this mod popped up as an entry, I initially thought it was for Star Wars Battlefront II (2017). So I was really impressed when I realised it was actually for the recent Jedi: Fallen Order title. This is a great recreation of one of the coolest characters from the prequel trilogy and a fitting mod for Star Wars Day (yesterday).
This mod reshapes and textures Cal's head and eyes to look like Darth Maul (horns included).
Canyon of Thorns - Sushin - Blade & Sorcery
This new map mod for Blade & Sorcery is a spacious arena with lots of opportunities for both close quarters and long range combat. Watch your step though or you may end up skewered on the spikes below.
A spacious canyon map with narrow bridges and a spiky pit of death. Comes with sniper enemy waves.
A Guiding Light - Clairvoyance Reimagined - Parapets - Skyrim Special Edition
Clairvoyance is an early game spell I often forget I have while playing Skyrim. I do remember using it pretty heavily in first ever play-through on the Xbox 360, but not so much in more recent games. The replacement spell added by this mod summons a friendly Wisp to guide you, rather the the magical line of the original spell. I find this much better for immersion as it makes more sense that you summon a magic creature that knows the way, rather the just somehow being able to highlight the correct path. I can see this being very useful if you play without using the map or quest markers.
Replaces Clairvoyance with a more convenient and immersive spell to help you find your way.
CustomHullPlates 2 - MrPurple6411 - Subnautica
While quite basic as mods go, I had a quite bit of fun playing around with the original CustomHullPlates mod before the game update earlier this year caused it to stop working. It's great to see the community picking up old favourites and breathing new life into them. Next time I play Subnautica this will definitely be on my list.
Created with original HullPlates in mind. Should load the old Hull Plates just fine.
