Rocket-fueled by NSFW Skyrim add-ons, Nexus Mods hits the 10 billion downloads milestone

One of the world’s biggest modding platforms, Nexus Mods, has just smashed through the incredibly huge total of 10 billion total downloads across its entire catalogue of games. And yes, NSFW Skyrim mods definitely played a part in the achievement.

Apparently this is something the team behind Nexus Mods has had its eye on for a while (the milestone that is, not the NSFW mods), and it’s a cool way to see just how popular modding has become, even if it’s been a thing for a decently long time.

In a news post, Nexus Mods community manager Demorphic explained: “These 10,000,000,000 downloads are spread across 539,682 mod files, created by a vibrant community of 128,361 mod authors, serving over 47 million total members, modding 2,683 different games.”
