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.
