- This is not the first time Mojo SopTops has recreated a Skyrim village in Far Cry 5, and they have also recreated other franchises and real locations.
A Skyrim enthusiast at Bethesda recreated the great city of Dawnstar using the Far Cry 5 engine. The project was shared online and received praise and appreciation from players. The project was shared online and received praise from several gaming communities.
Located in the northern region of Skyrim, known as The Fells, Dunstar is known for its two mines and a small port. In 2011’s The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Dunstar contained only a dozen buildings, but it is the capital of The Fale region, home of the Elder Scrolls Elders, and an important city.
Network developer Mojo Swoptops recreated the central area of Dunstar from Skyrim for Xbox Series X in the Far Cry 5 map editor. Mojo Swoptops uploaded a five-minute video to YouTube, showing a first-person visit to the redesigned Dunstar in Far Cry 5 vanilla. He also shared his work on the Elder Scrolls, Gaming, and Skyrim subreddits, where community members praised the look and attention to detail of the redesigned Dunstar. The atmosphere of the presentation, along with the Skyrim soundtrack, gave the impression that what Mojo Topps had created was a true remaster of Dunster and not just a recreation. However, Mojo Topps doesn’t seem to have included other features of the area, such as the Dunstar Sanctuary, the Dark Assassin faction, the Dark Brotherhood base, and the Nightcaller Sanctuary.
If the name Mojo SwapTops sounds familiar to you, it’s because other Skyrim cities such as Falcris, Riften, and Riverwood have already been recreated in Far Cry 5. The latest version of Mojo SwapTops is no different, as it perfectly recreates the look and feel of Skyrim’s Dawnstar in Far Cry 5 in a completely different game.
In addition to Skyrim’s cities, Mojo SwapTops has also recreated locations from other franchises such as Fallout and The Elder Rings using the Far Cry 5 engine. It has also implemented projects based on real locations, including a Waffle House, a WWE arena, and St Mary’s Cathedral in Poland.
Dawnstar in Far Cry 5 received a sequel in 2018, three years after its release, but no track editor was released for Far Cry 6. The last main Far Cry game also lacked an arcade mode; developers say these omissions allowed Ubisoft to focus on Far Cry 6’s campaign. Despite its age, many people still reach back to Far Cry 5 because of its map editor and arcade mode. This is proven by people like Mojo Swoptops, who continues to share his Far Cry 5 creations online.
