How To Upload Your Mods to www.TESNexus.com

This tutorial will walk you through how to upload your mod to TESNexus.com.

Prep-Work

  1. Create your mod and make sure the name is consistant throughout.
    Example:
    Name of the Mod: MyMod
    Name of the Files:
    Data\MyMod.7z (compressed archive of all the files in your mod)
    Data\MyMod.esp (no version number)
    Data\MyMod Readme.txt
    Data\Meshes\Armor\MyMod\M\cuirass.nif
    Data\Textures\Armor\MyMod\M\cuirass.dds
    Data\Textures\Menus\Icons\Armor\MyMod\cuirass.dds
  2. Make sure it conforms to Modding Etiquete.
  3. If the mod includes .NIF files, make sure the texture paths are not hard-coded.
  4. If your mod is visual or contains items, create screen shots and convert to .JPG format.
  5. Create a readme file. (Readme Generator)

Upload the Mod

  1. Create an account and login. http://www.tesnexus.com/login.php

  3. Fill in the following information and click Submit
    - File Name: MyMod (the name of your mod)
    - Version: 1.0
    - Author: you (or the actual author if your uploading for somebody else)
    - Category: Pick the right one for the right game: Oblivion or Morrowind (you can always change later if you goofed).

    - Author's Notes: Paste the Credits section of your readme here.
    - File Mirrors: OPTIONAL: If you've uploaded to other places, list them here.
  4. After you click Submit, you are taken to another page where you can actually upload your mod. Set the following and click Submit:
