Starfield’s Elder Scrolls Planet Mod Canceled: Here’s Why

Jul 02, 2024 12:19 PM

An ambitious Starfield modding project called "Project Tamriel," which aimed to integrate entire Elder Scrolls-themed planets into the game, has been canceled. Originally detailed in a Reddit post, the project planned to recreate worldspaces from iconic Elder Scrolls titles like Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind. However, the initiative was met with mixed reactions, and the modding community's lack of enthusiasm led to its cancellation. The modders cited the lack of community support as the main reason for the termination of the project.

Why was Project Tamriel canceled?

Project Tamriel was canceled due to a lack of community support and enthusiasm. The project’s creators realized that the broader community was not as excited about the initiative as they were, leading to the decision to halt its development.

Starfield is an upcoming space-exploration RPG by Bethesda Game Studios, known for their work on iconic series like The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. The game's modding community was eagerly looking forward to various mods, and while "Project Tamriel" is no longer in development, it demonstrates the potential and creativity within the Starfield modding scene.

It's a real bummer to see Project Tamriel get shelved, but it just goes to show that even the most ambitious mods need solid community backing to thrive. Hopefully, this sparks new projects that capture the same spirit and get the support they need.

It's a real bummer that Project Tamriel got scrapped, but it just goes to show that even the most promising mods need strong community backing to thrive. Still, the ambition behind it is a testament to what modders can achieve, so hopefully future projects can tap into that same creativity with better support.
