Now that some folks are using mod features created by Lypyl and TheLacus, I thought it might be a good time to create an official thread of sorts to keep them all in one place for now.
If you've created a mod that is ready for download, please post a link and brief description as a reply to this topic. I will edit this first post to keep them all together.
While there is only a small number of mods, I will also host on dfworkshop.net and provide a central download page for them all. At some point though we should look at uploading them to Nexus, for example.
Note: Installing mods can increase system requirements compared to base Daggerfall Unity.
Distant Terrain 2.2.0 (Nystul) [more+download] - Increase draw distance far beyond even default Daggerfall Unity.
Enhanced Sky 2.0.5 (Lypyl) [download] - A beautiful procedural sky with smooth day/night cycles, stars, weather, lunar cycles.
Real Grass & Plants 2.0 (TheLacus/Uncanny_Valley) [more] [download] - Adds lush animated grass and new species of plants to the game world.
Birds in Daggerfall 1.0.1 (Uncanny_Valley) [download] - Flying birds across the skies of the Illiac Bay.
Loading Screen 1.5 (TheLacus) [more] [download] - Adds a loading screen to Daggerfall Unity with customisation available.

Fixed Book Files (Eksevis) [more+download] - Aims to fix many of the issues with Daggerfall's Book files. These files should be copied to your "Arena2\Books" folder and replace old copy of the book.

Convenient Clocks (Uncanny_Valley) [more+download] - Adds a convenient clock to the HUD, with customization options.
A mod download page will be added to Daggerfall Workshop soon. Once the number of mods increases beyond this small number, it will be for the best to use a standard mod site like Nexus or ModDB to distribute mods.
