Skyrim is a beautiful game with a stunning landscape. It is also immensely detailed; wherever you go in the land of Skyrim you will find details like ruins, cottages, villages, mills and the lot. This is all nice and well, but some of us would have appreciated the untouched wilderness and its raw beauty and dangers as well. As it is now, vanilla Skyrim has no such. Wherever you turn, you are met by constructions or other instances that never give you the feeling of exploring a vast, formidable and dangerous Nordic wilderness.
This mod is going to change that. The main feature of this mod will be its wilderness and unexplored areas. The player will explore lands and sites where no man has gone before. This will all be done without ever presenting the player with boring or tedious situation or locations. All land created will be done with the intent of being interesting, impressive and present the player with some glorious vistas and also to encourage exploring of the land; finding new locations and new civilizations out there. The southern part of the new continent will also be beautifully colonized and civilized with at least one major city, several small towns, castles, monasteries and farms. This southern part will be designed to look and feel as historically Medieval as possible.
Work on Frontier has been ongoing for some time, but not until now have I started a ModDB page for it. I wanted to be able to show you progress first, and here we are. Alpha releases of the early versions of the mod are imminent. I don't know yet when I'll publish the first downloads, but I know they will be published here on ModDB first. I had a lot of fun on this website the last two years creating mods and publishing them here; Fairy Tale for Civ 4 and Dibella's Watch for Oblivion, both which were mentioned in the Mod of the Year awards.
Now the fun starts again! Check out my development blog for Frontier to get the inside of modding, and keep checking this page for uploads and other news. Start pressing that Watch This Page button, people, because I'm going to give you a new continent with impressive, beautiful landscape, megacities full of people and events, baddies, quests and a story to blow your mind. I've done it before, and I'll do it again.
