Inspired by Bethesda's upcoming RPG Starfield, a modder known as JaySerpa has created a much-anticipated healing feature for the classic game Skyrim, enhancing the gameplay experience.

Modder Creates Starfield-Inspired Healing Feature for Skyrim

One innovative modder, captivated by the quality-of-life features of the futuristic role-playing game Starfield, decided to rewind a bit and implement a significant feature to the beloved Bethesda's classic RPG, Skyrim. Affectionately known as JaySerpa, this modder longed for the ability to mend fallen allies during battles in Skyrim, a feature commonly seen in Starfield. Motivated by this yearning, they took matters into their own hands and made it possible.

JaySerpa's journey of creating this much-coveted feature started on a seemingly ordinary day of playing Skyrim, as Sarah, a character in the game, relentlessly agitated every creature in sight. JaySerpa, not unsurprisingly, found themselves hastily rushing over to heal Sarah, contemplating, in a spur of inspiration, just how convenient and cool it would be to be able to heal followers in a similar manner in Skyrim.

The result of this spark of creativity was a simple, yet incredibly useful mod known on NexusMods as "Press E To Heal Followers". Mirroring its functionality in Starfield, once a companion drops during a battle, players merely hurry over to their injured ally, press 'E' to provide them with a potion (the weakest one from their inventory), and continue their monster-slaying, steel-clashing adventures.

Satisfying players' appetite for immersive experiences, JaySerpa, seizing the moment, incorporated 200 additional lines of dialogue to enrich the rather standardized "thank you" phrases uttered by the companion, making their expressions of gratitude more varied and immersive.

JaySerpa, a seasoned Skyrim modder, holds a commendable track record. Among previous accomplishments was a feature allowing players to pet in-game dogs, a sweet gesture that, disappointingly, is missing from Bethesda’s forthcoming space epic, owing to its absence of non-violent non-human characters. JaySerpa's creative reach has also spanned more broad-scale modifications, such as a quest pack turning Skyrim into a magical Harry-Potter-themed adventure.

As Starfield prepares to provide its official modding support next year, players await with bated breath to see whether this level of ingenuity and creativity will feature in the new space. Meanwhile, Starfield fans can enjoy an array of fantastic mods available for download.

Like every coin has two sides, not all mods are as practical or enjoyable. Some would argue they're stuff of nightmares, such as the peculiar modification that replaces every space ship in the game with the well-known outlier, Thomas The Tank Engine. Whether it's adding a touch of whimsy or drastically changing the gaming experience, the world of mods continues to showcase the ability of dedicated gamers and creative minds to reshape gaming landscapes.
