Tropical Skyrim mod says goodbye to the winter chill

Wednesday, 13th March 2013 12:01 GMT By Nick Akerman

Are you ready to see Skyrim in a different light? Better strip off and throw your woolie hats away. Bethesda’s land just got tropical.

Skyrim modder Soolie has been hard at work stripping the snowy land of its chill. His mod, which is named Tropical Skyrim — A Climate Overhaul, inserts beaches, deserts, jungles, volcanic areas and much more into the PC version of the game.

Plenty of new wildlife can also be discovered. Bears are exchanged for Pandas, jungle spiders make an appearance, and apes replace trolls, to name a few of the changes. Various alterations have also been made to armour, buildings and weather.

Take a look right here:

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Well I don’t care what anyone says against using a pc for gaming, but this right here, this is the single biggest reason for me. If I get bored of a game, someone completely rejuvenates it for me. Happy days.

    This is a huge mod, I’m a little scared to try it as I always am with mods. I get the feeling somehow I will end up breaking the game and losing my saves or something like this. Don’t want to lose my 100 hours character…

    @5 Nah, just pull the save files out. I think their in ‘My Games’ under my docs. But that’s without being able to check. Goes without saying take steam cloud off if you do start pissing around.
