This mod puts Half-Life: Alyx’s gravity glove into Skyrim VR

Half-Life: Alex’s Gravity Glove ruined many other virtual reality games for me, as enabling dots and flip objects in my hands solved very strange maneuver problems in other games. It is difficult, after the grandeur of Half-Life’s system, to pick up objects to bend, sidestepping, and go grasping in the air – or worse, any and all confrontation with the world around you in your hands. Lacks.

Enter the mode. In particular, enter Moder FlyingParticle, which has released HIGGS VR for Skyrim VR. This is a mod that adds gravity-glove-style interaction to Skyrim, and seems to work beautifully.

HIGGS stands for Hand Interaction and Gravity Gloves for Skyrim. The VR-focused YouTuber Cangar created the video below to showcase the mod’s features, and it has everything you want from an Alyx-inspired mod:

You can pinpoint items and flip them in your hands. You can now use your hands to move things around the table. For example, in your game the hands will hold the model in natural positions, which can hold you from the base, tip, or bottle from any point. You can now drop items to keep them in pocket, a common feature in many first-person VR games. You can use this system to snatch armor from defeated enemies. Even it works with Skyrim’s theft system, exposing red colored items that you would be branded to pick up a thief.

There are some differences between implementation between it and half-life: Alyx. For one, here you point your palm towards the objects that pull them towards you, which I can imagine something to use. However, it includes an .ini file which will let you fix some of its settings according to your preference.

Instructions for how to install and install HIGGS VR can be found on the mod’s Nexus Mod page. You’ll want to download the VRIK mod for the full experience seen in the video above, as it gives you an in-game body and finger animation to grab objects.
