I find myself awake in the wee hours, and the usual coding gets old sometimes.

Also I find myself wanting to do *some* game development but the buy in and effort involved in developing anything other than retro games is hollywood level investment these days.

But...

What if there was a game that was almost endlessly expandable and modifiable? An offline game so you don't have to worry about restrictions in terms of what you can create and add or subtract from the game. What if it was a relatively modern open world action oriented role playing game you could alter to your heart's content.

Die hard Fallout 4 and Skyrim fans already know what I'm talking about.

There's a reason I've been "playing" the same game for seven years.

I can totally recommend buying Skyrim and/or Fallout 4 (don't bother with anything other than Game of the Year edition/GOTY, the DLC is pretty much a must as it nearly doubles the size of the game)

Once you buy it, play it through once or twice, and then download Creation Kit and start modifying it.

It's a bunch of data entry of records you can override and add to change things, and then also a scripting language for programming the thing.

It tickles my love for development, and allows me to create game content using a modern(ish) engine.

Just putting that out there for people that are interested in game development and don't want to be stuck making retro arcade button mashers or simplistic RPGs.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
