The Creation Kit (previously known as the Construction Set or CS) is a tool that can be used to view and edit the game's data files. The tool was released on 7 February, along with a High Resolution Texture Pack. The Creation Kit is an external program that is run separately from the game of Skyrim. The Creation Kit is available for download through Steam. It can be located on Steam under the View menu, Tools, Creation Kit. The download is approximately 85MB in size. It is only available on the PC, as console manufacturers do not allow third party content to run on users' systems.The Creation Kit has its own wiki, where you can find all the details and tutorials for creating your own mods.
The Creation Kit is a program that can be used to control nearly any aspect of the game or create mods, capable of adding brand new user-created game content, examining the game data, retexturing the game, and changing GUI elements such as making a PC-friendly items menu. It also integrates with the Steam Workshop to allow users to share, rate, and download mods.
Prior to the Creation Kit release, many modders were using third-party tools to indirectly extract then read the game's files. These tools have been developed based on knowledge of the game data format used in previous Elder Scrolls games, and are known to provide the same type of game information as the Creation Kit. Despite this, the Creation Kit will likely give more information because it was made to create the game originally. So, more Game data (e.g., item statistics) can be extracted with these tools then will be added to UESP articles. This data is likely to be casually described as "Creation Kit data".
Creation Kit - универсальный редактор игры, на котором и создана вся игра TES V: Skyrim. Предоставлять редактор игры вместе с игрой - это уже традиция серии The Elder Scrolls, которая, стоит признать - окупается огромным количеством качественных и масштабных модов, которые вышли и продолжают выходить для TES III: Morrowind и TES IV: Oblivion.
