If you’re anything like Giuseppe, you have an unnatural affinity for Skyrim mods (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Well, it seems as though there’s plenty of you mod-nuts out there as Bethesda’s latest free-roaming adventures just had its 2 millionth download. Everything from improved texture packs to that My Little Pony mod have been making their rounds since the game’s Nov. 11 release.

And is it really any surprise? The Elder Scrolls series is notorious for its modding community. Bethesda developer Todd Howard revealed this tidbit during a DICE keynote, adding that 2,500 mods have been created and uploaded to Steam since the Creation Kit was released. He also mentioned the average playtime for the game is 75 hours and that he’d someday like to include modding to its console versions. Now where’s my Skyrim Seinfeld soundtrack mod?
