As you're probably aware version 1.2 of Skyrim is due out at some point today
. Some of you might have been expecting or hoping that the Creation Kit, the SDK software that will enable the more complex mods to be created, would also be released today along with this patch. Sadly that's not the case, as community manager Gstaff comments
on the Official Bethesda Blog
We're all just going to have to be a little more patient to get our hands on the modding tools. So continue to play Skyrim and learn everything you can in time for the eventual launch of the Creation Kit.
In other news version 0.12.11 of the Nexus Mod Manager
has been available for download for a couple of days now and so far the feedback has been very positive with lots of important bug fixes in place. If you've been holding off on installing it or experienced problems before you might want to give NMM a go now.
