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.
Many have focused on changing the game by adding massive new questlines, fresh movement animations, and tougher bandits to it, with a few even going as far as giving you the chance to rock some butterfly wings or giving you the chance to become high priest of your own temple.
If you’re someone who’s more interested in finding somewhere cosy to chill out between dungeon delves and you don’t fancy living in a coastal manor or a fort made of cheese wheels, a recently released mod might be worth taking a look at.
Feel like delving into a new choice and consequence-heavy Daedric storyline in Skyrim?
The mod in question is called ‘Underground Spa - a Ayleid Spa playerhome’, and is the work of modder Mikulash. They’ve previously erected a beautiful little cottage near Riverwood that’s perfect for those who fell in love with their surroundings the minute they left Helgen.
This time, they’ve decided to take their building talents below the surface of Skyrim, creating a luxurious underground spa with architecture inspired by Ayleid ruins, which makes a great place to retreat to for a peaceful soak when you’re visiting the area between Whiterun and Riverwood.
As you can see in the showcase video above, Mikulash has made sure the sauna has both a large pool and smaller jacuzzi for you to choose between, in addition to most of the comforts you’d expect from a more traditional player home.
These include a few places to eat and sleep, as well as some containers to tuck your gear away in, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally dropping any swords or axes into the water and having them go rusty.
Plus, entry to the spa is seemingly free of charge, meaning that you can pop in at any point during your playthroughs, rather than having to go and do a bunch of dirty work to earn enough coin to buy yourself some prime real estate.
Mikulash has also created an optional file that links it to their other player home mod, the previously mentioned cottage, via a convenient trap door, so make sure to grab that if you download both.
