Skyrim is one of the world’s most popular video games. And although there is already a Skyrim mod for Minecraft called SkyrimCraft, the modding community felt there was room for two Skyrim mods.
That’s where the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Minecraft Mod comes in. This mod aims to combine all of our favorite parts of Skyrim with the best parts of Minecraft to create one fantastic gaming experience.
To do that, the Skyrim Minecraft Mod adds the following features to the game:
-Adds 12 new mobs
-Adds 137 new items
-Adds 2 new food items
-Adds 4 new biomes
The new mobs include characters from Skyrim like an adventurer, daedra, Dark Brotherhood, Dwarven Spider, horse, Imperial, Khajiit, mage, mammoth, Nightingale, and Frost Troll.
Each mob has a different health rating. The mammoth tops the charts with a whopping 465 hearts, while the Frost Troll is no pushover with 100 hearts of health. In other words, be careful about which mobs you attack.
One of the coolest additions to the game through the Skyrim Minecraft Mod is the horse. Players can ride their horse and control wherever it goes. Simply give the horse an apple to tame him, then mount him and turn the horse using your mouse.
There are also new landscapes, like the Tundra and Dense Forest, each of which will be familiar to Skyrim players. And like Skyrim itself, there is a crafting system that allows players to create all of the following types of weapons and armor:
Each weapon and armor piece can be upgraded to make it more powerful, and players will find that there is plenty of resource collecting and crafting to be done if they want to create the perfect piece of armor or the deadliest weapon.
