Burried Treasures
So many mods are lost that are realy excellent, some without a star to their name.
This collection is for mods that remain under rated which I/we together can hopefully help to highlight and so that people can find them more easily.
I'm only including mods with a rating of under 200, some have no rating atall :(
(None of mine, so to remain impartial as poss on this one)

If you know a mod thats as under rated as these please tell me so i can add it to this list.

No order of preference here, they are all under rated.

Mods get under rated for alot of different reasons, sometimes they have been upgraded since their origional release, other times the floors in the voting system, pictures that dont do the mod justice and sometimes just from releasing on the wrong day of the week/bad luck.

This list is only going to be helpful if you click rate on it so that other people can find these burried treasures. So If you can see how this would be useful, maybe you noticed something here you might otherwise have overlooked or know something that should be added, please lend your support in this way, and SHARE ;)

Please Please remember to thumbs ups these mods individually if you like them to give the modder a buzz and help other people to find that mod.

Update: It has been nice to notice mods increase in ratings: ashame to remove some which have gained in access of 200 ratings, with others approaching the mark I've added more.

Some of these mods are utterly awesome!

I love this collection. Occasionally, a mod of mine gets sort of popular, and whenever it does, I wind up feeling bad that a mod that I put ten minutes into got popular while some who put hours into their mods received zero recognition. Thanks for making this collection--it's good to know that those deserving but lacking recognition are getting some from the community.

Hi mafilux
That looks great, I have just been putting forward mods which are available on steam with less than 200 rating.. I'll keep my eyes peeled for it's release here and if for some odd reason it gets overlooked for some reason i would be sure to add it :)
with all that publicity I'm pretty sure it would make it, Unless there's one of those odd bymonthly crashes which lasted a little longer than usual. that's about the only thing that would make this mod invisible here i recon. not just half a dozen kids downvoting a friday realese.
Thanks for thinkg of this collection ;)
mafilux Feb 20, 2014 @ 6:07am 
The Helgen Reborn mod is really good, but I'm not rtoo ure if it meets your criteria. I have no idea how popular it is, but because you can't find it on Steam Workshop it may have been overlooked.
G20  [author] Jan 3, 2014 @ 10:48am 
It's nice to see the ratings going up on a some of these; I went to check out some mods i added to other collections, that i'd noted before and when i was putting this list together already have the 200 now though they deserve some more attention too.
There's been a good responce to this collction; If anyone has some spare moments and wants in on admin please let me know ;)

If you come accross any let me know, collections can make a little difference, not as much as a good review by any means, but a little difference.
