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

I've been a modder since 1995 when Warcraft II was released. My mods are consistently top ranked, and my work has been featured on GameSpot, Kotaku, and various YouTube channels where videos of my mods have received 1.54 million views.

The goal of this campaign is to reach a point where I can develop mods full-time. All contributions will go to paying bills, buying games, and hopefully, one day, paying off my student loan debt. If you've enjoyed my mods, or you use my modding tools, I'd appreciate your support!

What mods have you created?

Over the years, I've created hundreds of mods for many games, such as Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher 3, Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, and Stellaris. But 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 ~60 mods to GitHub, Master of Disguise for classic Skyrim was #1 in Stealth on the Skyrim Nexus and #1 in Stealth in the Skyrim G.E.M.S. Hall of Fame.


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 214,000 players subscribe to my Divinity: Original Sin 2 mods on Steam.

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




What else have you done?


I don't just create mods; 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.

Terms of Patronage

By becoming a patron, you agree, understand, or acknowledge that:

  • You are not purchasing mods and I am not selling mods.
  • I cannot grant mod or feature requests in exchange for your patronage.
  • I can accept requests for original software tools written in C#, Python, or Delphi.
  • All mods I create will be available online for free. Source code for tools will be available with or without an open source license on a case-by-case basis. 

Can I just donate once?

You can! You can send a PayPal Donation through the Nexus. Unfortunately, I cannot offer Patreon benefits to PayPal donors, but you'll have my sincerest thanks regardless.
