Tropical Skyrim mod: turns Elder Scrolls game's land into Caribbean-like paradise (video)

We're big fans of Skyrim and its cold and rugged landscape. But in the never-ending colds of the UK's apparent spring, we could do with a bit of warming.

Which is where the Skyrim Tropical mod by Soolie comes to the rescue. It turns the Elder Scrolls game into a dense jungle-like landscape that's coated with warm rays of sunshine, complete with golden sands, transparent waters and even parrots. Yes, parrots.

Tropical Skyrim doesn't look much like Skyrim at all upon first glance. It takes away that Medieval feel and gives it an all the more Uncharted 2 or Far Cry 3 feel.

Take a look at the video above which shows off some of the mod's great details. This truly is a climate overhaul so we have to take our hats off to this modder. Looks like many, many hours of modding investment.
