Skyrim modding is the process of creating or using downloadable, community-made modifications for the 2011 fantasy role-playing video game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. One of the most modded games of all time, Skyrim has over 60,000 mod submissions on Nexus Mods and 28,000 in the Steam Workshop. Many of these mods were created to ensure a more stable game experience, such as patching numerous bugs left in the game by Bethesda Softworks, while others tweak aspects of the game considered lackluster or poor, such as the game's UI and character movement. Some mods also add additional content, such as new quests and characters, or improve and modernize the game's graphics, animation and other features beyond what was originally intended. The game has a large adult modding scene. It is commonplace for players to mod Skyrim prior to playing, with "playing the vanilla game" described as "a little subversive" due to the game's outdated mechanics.
