Skyrim Workshop allows you to follow your favorite mod creators


An update to the Skyrim Steam Workshop now allows you to follow your favorite Skyrim mod authors, enabling you to keep track of the new stuff they create.

The Skyrim Workshop is portion of Steam that allows creators to upload their Skyrim mod so that the community can browse, rate, and flag it for download.

As noted in the most recent Valve update:

"For any item, you can click “View all shared files” to see what else the author has created, and then choose to follow that author. Following someone in the Workshop will let you easily discover the latest items and mods that they create, which is accessible through the “Followed Authors” filter on the right side of the Workshop."

Other additions and updates to the Workshop include:

  • There is now an ‘author’ tag next to comments where a workshop author is replying to comments left on their page.
  • The information that comes up when you hover over an item in browse view now includes whether you are subscribed and if any friends have added that item to their favorites.
  • There are new filter options in the right column to see your friends’ favorites as well as your own favorites and subscribed files.

The Skyrim Workshop has only been out for a little over three weeks, and already gamers have collectively subscribed to mods an astonishing 5,566,006 times.

"It’s incredible to see so many talented individuals and teams sharing their passion with the community," Valve said.

You can begin following modders at the Skyrim Steam Workshop, but make sure you are logged into your Steam account.
