So Bethesda announced that their creation kit for Skyrim will be coming out on Tuesday, and this got me really excited. Since Oblivion I've dabbled in creating my own mods, but never ended up making anything serious. The most I did was make a few weapons for Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, and was never able to finish anything good for Oblivion. With the release of the new creation kit, I hope to seriously get into modding Skyrim and attempt to create some really good mods.
Along with the Creation kit, there will be the steam workshop coming out where people can upload, browse, and download mods from authors. The only problem I have with this is that there could be many great mods that are offered on only the steam workshop or only skyrimnexus.com, where skyrim mods are uploaded now, and now people will have to deal with two places to look for good mods. Of course it really isn't such a bad thing, but it could mean that you can miss out on some really good mods unless you really look at both sites. It also means though that mod authors have to deal with two sites to update their mods, and help anyone having trouble with it. Once again it's really not that bad of a thing, but could get a bit annoying.
