Skyrim Mod Showcase: Become a Bard, Waves, and Real Shelter

Posted on February 17, 2013 AT 03:43pm

This time we have three mods to share with you, Become a Bard and two immersion mods–Waves and Real Shelter.

Become a Bard allows players to do exactly that. Simply head to any inn and you can play either the Flute, Lute, or Drum to earn money and a free bed for the night. Players also have the option of leveling up their Bard skills to earn more money.

The second mod is the Waves mod, a relatively simple one which adds the new waves feature from the Dragonborn DLC to the coasts of Skyrim. Two versions of this mod are available–a vanilla texture version and a full HD version.

Finally we take a look at the Real Shelter mod, which offers a fix to a rather immersion breaking issue in Skyrim. When you stand under shelter in a rainstorm the water still comes through as if it wasn’t even there, this mod simply fixes that issue. After it’s installed, when you stand under shelter you will be protected from the rain, but you can still watch it continuing outside the shelter. It’s a pretty neat mod.

You can download Become a Bard here, Waves here, and Real Shelter here. Be sure to check out our YouTube channel for the latest Mod Showcases as they are uploaded.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
