Skyrim map mod takes a cue from Google Street View

Skyrim hasn’t been out an entire week, and already the mod community is working day and night to create various patches, enhancements, and textures for the PC version. One of the neatest we’ve seen, and there are quite a few cools ones out there, is the map mod which shows you how to tweak the map in full 3D in order to zoom clear to the ground. PC Gamer said the result is a bit like a free camera mode that allows the player to “roam anywhere in the world” a bit like Google Street View. You can check it out through Skyrim Nexus, the video below, and look over a list of some other mods for the game here.
