Skyrim's Dragonborn in their new hat home.

Modders have put an awful lot of effort into making sure Skyrim has continually evolved and expanded in the years since it was first released into the world, with some having focused on revolutionising the game by adding massive new quests, huge mechanic overhauls, or surreal door-based trickery to it.

However, many have simply dedicated their time to making sure players can move into a fresh home with each new character, giving the Dragonborn the keys to everything from noble fiefdoms, to isolated cabins, and even full-size galleons.

If you’re one of those heroes who loves getting cosy in a new place, but prefer something on the smaller side and don’t have time to integrate a commute into your busy schedule, a new mod might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Ready to move into your own headwear?

The mod in question is called ‘Home in a Hat - Haven Bag inspired house’, and is the work of prolific modder Elianora. When they haven’t been making Fallout 4 more Christmassy for charity, a lot of their previous modding work has been focused around adding incredibly high-quality player homes to Tamriel, including one made entirely out of cheese.

This time, they’ve taken inspiration from Caithe’s ‘Haven Bag’, which allows you to move into the interior of a bag simply by equipping it, in order to create a magical hat that can store more than just the crown of your head.

Said hat, which is named the “Ancient Wizard Hat”, will be added to your inventory as soon as you install the mod, allowing you to venture straight into its interior by placing it atop your character’s bonce.

Inside, you’ll find a comfy bed, as well as most of the crafting stations you’ll need to modify and create gear, plus a bit of storage space, though don’t expect to find as much space to move around in as you might be accustomed to if you usually chill in a palace or castle.

Given Elianora’s decision to opt for a rather compact design, it might be a good thing that the hat’s teleportation spell will only work on the player, saving you from having to try and push Lydia out of the way to get to your bed.

Regardless of whether your Dragonborn is now trying to superglue the hat to their head in order to stop draugr from launching all of their precious possessions into next week with an unrelenting force shout, make sure to follow us for more updates on The Elder Scrolls 6 and the interesting world of Skyrim modding.
