Creation Kit and Steam Workshop

Now you can easily discover, rate, and download Skyrim mods directly through Steam. The Steam Workshop makes it easy to browse the most popular, newest or highest-rated mods of all time, as well as searching for specific content via tags such as “Armor”, “Quests”, “Dungeons”, and more. You can even see what your friends have added to their favorites. Once you’ve found something awesome, click the “Subscribe” button. The next time you play Skyrim, the launcher will automatically install the latest version of any subscribed mods and configure Skyrim to run them.
Mod-makers also enjoy a streamlined process for uploading mods directly to Steam. The difficult part, of course, is creating your mod. To get started modding, install the Creation Kit – free through Steam to all Skyrim owners – from the Tools section of your Steam Library. The Creation Kit is a powerful and sometimes daunting tool, but the community wiki at http://www.creationkit.com is a resource for modders of all skill levels, even the total beginner.
