Not That Sort of Club

Nexus Mods is a great site for finding fun mods to PC games, and I use it all the time. It's where I got the "easy mode" mod that turned Elden Ring into one of my favorite games of the year, for example.

They were in the news this week which they summarized in this blog post:

Recently there's been some silly drama on our site that was sparked by someone uploading a mod for Spider-Man Remastered. The mod replaced the very few Pride flags the game actually has with the already prevalent USA flag texture from the game. The mod was removed from Nexus Mods and the author was banned.

They explained their position as well:

In regards to the replacement of Pride flags in this game, or any game, our policy is thus: we are for inclusivity, we are for diversity. If we think someone is uploading a mod on our site with the intent to deliberately be against inclusivity and/or diversity then we will take action against it.

Good for them. Nexus Mods allows all sorts of content, but they don't support this sort of thing. If you want this mod, then there's nothing stopping anyone from uploading the mod elsewhere, it's just not going to be on Nexus Mods.
