Welcome to our community!
TES Alliance is designed to be a home for modders by modders, our goal is to unify the community and bring you the cutting edge in information and technology to take your modding hobby to the next level. We’re also proud to welcome modding fans of all walks to enjoy our broad range features and exclusive file downloads.
The ESRB rating for this community is TEEN (ie 13+), irrespective of the rating of the individual games. It is expected that the content and tone of your posts conforms to this rating.
T for TEEN: May contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, and/or infrequent use of strong language.
Admissions of piracy, intent to pirate, describing or linking to how to pirate any software/media, or causing a major disruption in the forums, will result in an instant closing of your account. Because proxies are frequent sources of commercial spam and other abuse of forum facilities, proxy addresses may be banned at any time and without notice.
Since this is an English forum and our headquarters are located in the USA, we respectfully request that English is used when posting here for clarity’s sake. Non-English language greetings are permitted. The use of leet speak is difficult to understand for many, and should not be used. In addition, please do not take it upon yourself to police spelling and grammar. With the number of non-English speaking members here, it is to be expected errors will occur.
Please take a moment to read through the rules and guidelines below so that everyone who posts on these forums can have an enjoyable experience!
Thank you for your patronage and we hope you enjoy your visit!

Your signature may contain:

- Overly large or otherwise disruptive signatures will be deleted by staff
- This is a PG-13 forum. Images may not include nudity, sexually explicit poses, vulgar or profane materials. Images may not depict children in any sexual or otherwise compromised manner. Images of these natures will be deleted and uploaders may be warned. In general, bikini coverage is the minimum allowed; and we mean bikini not bikini. To be more specific, all intimate body parts must be covered, or concealed. The TESA Team reserves the right to make the judgment call and remove images that are skirting the decency line. In these cases, users will be informed; their compliance with the ruling is mandatory.
- Avatars and Signatures may NOT contain the TESA dragon image, as it is reserved for our staff only; violations will be removed and the user may be warned. This includes the TESA dragon logo, which may not be used in any context (avatar, signature, or otherwise) without staff sanctioning. Special exceptions can be made by senior staff.
