We all know that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is something of a modder's paradise. While the base game is ten years old this November (where'd that decade disappear to, huh?), it continues to be built upon by creative players and modders. Indeed, just last week we saw an amazing mod that turned Bethesda's role-playing game into something more like what we're hoping to see in the sixth Elder Scrolls; and before that, some clothes-hating user turned the Dragonborn into a thirst-trap.
For one modder, however, their recent toying with the world of Skyrim produced some very unexpected results. Nightmarish ones, if we're being honest. It's an entirely unholy combination of acid smileys and, um, cheese. Dairylea being an essential to keep in your bumbag at any rave, after all.
As PCGamesN reports, modder WickWah has turned the city of Riften into a landscape dominated by huge, grinning wheels of cheese. They'd previously added some high-quality trees and shrubbery to the settlement of Whiterun, in a 'City of Trees' mod available here. But upon attempting something similar for Riften, on the shores of Lake Honrich, they made a crucial mistake. They let auto-correct have its way.
Now titled the 'City of Cheese' mod, available here, WickWah's creation is, in their own words, an "overhaul for Riften that hand places cheese all over the city". And, why? "It was supposed to be trees, but auto-correct fubar'd the plans."
Or, alternatively: did it improve those plans? Trees are everywhere in Skyrim. Loads of trees. Trees as far as the eye can see. Trees for days. Sometimes, giants grab them and batter you with them. But, what if a giant were to grab an enormous wheel of cheese, instead? And then, eat that cheese? It'd slump down, in a content, cheese-overdose haze, and pose no threat to any adventurer. Sounds like a win to me.
I guess if you're dairy intolerant - or if those smileys are giving you flashbacks to some drug-powered warehouse experience sometime around 1989 - then this isn't a mod for you. But sure, why shouldn't there be titanic cheese wheels in Skyrim? It's a fantasy game, so why not get indulgent. Also, IDK about anyone else, but I really fancy some cheese on toast for lunch, now.
In related Elder Scrolls news, these Oblivion NPC videos are absolutely worth your time, and your chortles, today; and it turns out Bethesda lied to us about those steps leading up to High Hrothgar. The dirty rotten cheats.
