GamesBeat’s Favorite Skyrim Mods #4: Tropical Skyrim

With the impending release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — Legendary Edition, which bundles all three downloadable content packs along with the original core game, GamesBeat thought this might be a good time to highlight some of our favorite PC mods.

If you like what you see or have some awesome mods of your own to suggest, leave a comment below and you’ll automatically be entered to win one of 10 golden Skyrim NES carts made exclusively for GamesBeat by 72pins. U.S. entries only. The winner will be randomly chosen on May 25, so make sure to check back then.

Skyrim has dozens of graphical mods at this point, but only one turns Tamriel into a tropical paradise. For fans of Far Cry 3 or Dead Island, Soolie’s Tropical Skyrim mod replaces the vanilla settings with lush jungles, sandy beaches, bamboo forests, and volcanic areas. It also subs in different wild animals, so now you’ll encounter pandas instead of bears, tigers instead of sabre cats, seals instead of horkers, and so on.
