The Silgrad Tower project started in 2002 as an extension for TES3: Morrowind, and over time a living, vibrant world was lovingly crafted. We're still working on the plugin (after an eight month hiatus), but we also focus our attention on bringing Silgrad Tower to TES4: Oblivion. Silgrad Tower uses the excellent archive format 7z, which is far superior to Winzip in every respect. These archives come as executables, which means you don't need to install any software to extract the files. Just download, double-click, and browse to your "Data Files" directory and extract Beta 3 to it. Our community uploads internal releases on a regular basis. These are used by our modders for testing purposes, but the internal releases also fixes bugs from Beta 3. The current internal release, 1.3.963, is available on our download page and we recommend you use the internal-release .esp instead of the .esp in Beta 3. To do that, download and extract Beta 3, then throw away the .esp. Then...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Silgrad Tower. We love games like Morrowind that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
