I'm fireundubh, but people just call me fire.

I've been creating mods since 1992 when Warcraft II was released. My mods are consistently top ranked in their categories, and my work has been featured on GameSpot, Kotaku, and various YouTube channels where videos of my mods have received nearly 1.5 million views.

Back in the real world, I'm a game developer who has worked on PC, console, and handheld games in the open world RPG, third-person shooter, turn-based strategy, fighting, and sports genres. I've worked as a producer, writer, tools dev, tester, and community guy.

Between honing my technical skills and looking for work, I'm short on free time. With your generosity and your passion for expertly crafted gameplay mods, I can dedicate more time to creating new experiences and updating the best of my mods you've enjoyed over the years.


What mods have you created?


Over the years, I've created hundreds of mods for many games, including Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher 3, Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, and Stellaris. I'm best known for the few below:

For  Skyrim, there's Master of Disguise, a disguise-and-discovery mechanic, which was the titular mod in GameSpot's Season 4 Episode 2 of Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week. The mod was featured by MxR Mods in this review and by Brodual in the spotlight video below.

Prior to moving most of my mods to GitHub, Master of Disguise for classic Skyrim was also #1 in Stealth on the Skyrim Nexus and #1 in Stealth in the Skyrim G.E.M.S. Hall of Fame.


I also wrote extensive documentation for Master of Disguise.

For  Fallout 4, there's Auto Loot, an extremely configurable area loot mechanic. Developed before the Creation Kit was released, Auto Loot was the first mod of its kind for Fallout 4. The all-in-one mod features auto loot, auto harvest, and auto steal/lockpick systems.

Auto Loot was also featured by Twinfinite and various YouTubers.



For  Divinity: Original Sin 2, there's Let There Be Tooltips!, which adds tooltips to more than 500 interactive objects. Hailed as one of the best mods by Kotaku, the mod has more than 88,000 subscribers on the Steam Workshop across the Classic and Definitive Edition versions. The mod debuted at #3 in Most Subscribed and remains in the Top 10 with a 99% Positive rating. Let There Be Tooltips! was also featured by GameStarGame Watcher, and multiplayer.it.



In total, more than 180,000 players subscribe to my Divinity: Original Sin 2 mods on Steam.

For Kingdom Come: Deliverance, there's Easy Lockpicking, a lockpicking skill overhaul that avoids the lockpicking minigame in a fair and balanced way. Since its debut, the mod has been #1 in Gameplay by downloads and endorsements on the Nexus. It was featured by KotakuGame RevolutionUS GamerSegmentNextGame WatcherTwinfiniteEurogamer, and more!




What else have you done?


I don't just create mods, but I create modding tools, too. Here's a few:

  • I developed Modsmith, a Python framework for Kingdom Come: Deliverance mods, that introduces build automation to the ecosystem. Modders get more work done faster and keep mods up-to-date across game patches with minimal effort.
  • I contributed to xEdit, including reverse engineering most of the Fallout 4 plugin. This work helped jumpstart the Fallout 4 modding community before the Creation Kit was released.
  • For LSLib, a tool for creating, extracting, and converting game data for the Divinity: Original Sin series, I developed a C# interface used to automate the packaging process.
  • I created Pyro, a project compiler for Fallout 4, Skyrim Special Edition, and classic Skyrim. This Python wrapper makes compiling Papyrus scripts a breeze.
  • I contributed to Wrye Bash, a mod manager for Elder Scrolls and Fallout games. I updated the NSIS installer and uninstaller, including adding x64 support, adding Skyrim Special Edition and Nehrim support, and fixing Windows Registry issues.
  • I wrote a Delphi script used by LOOT maintainers and Wrye Bash modders who help you sort mods and create intelligent bashed patches for the Elders Scrolls and Fallout games.


What will I get out of my patronage?


Each tier offers two kinds of rewards. Core rewards will be granted immediately, or as soon as possible. Goal-based rewards require more work and time to prepare, so they will be granted when their respective goals are reached. More goal-based rewards may be added later.
