Modding
This page contains information regarding modding while using Nightly Builds
Although we don’t recommend modding the game, to increase stability and give the developers more crash reports, that have more usable data, you can still mod Skyrim like normal. To do that, you can follow the following guides for every method, with or without a mod manager.
Skyrim Together will work well with mods created with the Creation Kit (such as Beyond Skyrim: Bruma). Mods created with SKSE may have trouble with synchronizations as it may contain functionality that is unknown to the vanilla game itself.
One of our Community Helpers, Asahiro has made a way to provide an extensive modding guide for Skyrim Together, which can be found here.
