Modder Gives Up Work on Starfield Together, But Puts Code in Open Source

The modders behind the successful co-op mod for Skyrim, Skyrim Together, have revealed that they have started work on a similar creation for Bethesda’s newest open-world exploration RPG, Starfield. However, they’re indefinitely pausing work on the project due to dissatisfaction with the game.

According to VG247, one of the modders, Cosideci, made an announcement on the Discord channel for their previous project and explained why they were dropping the project or, instead, passing it on for other developers to finish.

In the announcement, Cosideci said he could port nearly three-fourths of Skyrim Together’s code into the unfinished Starfield mod. However, he decided he would not continue the work because “[Starfield] is f**king trash.”

Cosideci went on to say that Starfield lacks what made its predecessors, especially The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, well-loved by the gaming community - exploration in a world that fully hand-crafted and immersive.

“I'm not gonna put my heart and soul into a mod for a game as mediocre as this,” he concluded.

Cosideci and the other modders, however, have put the code into open source in case other developers are interested in taking over and actually finishing the project, which Cosideci said will require more than 100 hours of work to complete.

It’s too bad that we might not be able to some cooperative play coming into Starfield soon, but at least there’s a feature from one of its predecessors that we could still enjoy. Thanks to this mod, players can now loot dead NPCs and strip them naked. You can download it for free from Nexus.
