What is Skyrim Search?
Skyrim Search is a database web utility to help you find item codes and many other Skyrim codes to use with Skyrim's console commands on the PC. These codes are also called Form IDs, Base IDs or Reference IDs. If you found this site, you are probably familiar with using the Skyrim console, since it's very similar to Bethesda's previous games Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Be sure to visit the "Features" page for my Console Commands article and more.
Why use Skyrim Search?
The advantage of using Skyrim Search instead of other websites is that this site has been specifically designed to help you find Skyrim console codes as quickly and easily as possible, without unnecessary information or advertisements getting in your way or unnecessary clicks wasting your time and coming between you and your codes. At the same time, this site does offer some stat information about almost all items, so that you don't need to go out to another site to find out whether Dwarven arrows or Elven arrows have the highest damage rating.
A New Site for 2015
Heading into 2015, I decided that the design of SkyrimSearch.com, originally created in 2011 and my very first PHP/database site, badly needed an update to make it much more functional not only on desktop browsers but especially on mobile devices and tablets. The site has also gone dark - if you're gaming in a dark room, the last thing you need is a bright white site.
A few updates are still to be done - the Quest listings, and a few further feature articles that are helpful to find something if you don't remember the exact name. If you appreciate the work that went into creating this new and much more efficient version of the site, and if you find the site useful, please make a donation
. This site has no advertising, and despite the incredible number of visitors, which continually increases and is higher now than ever, my occasional requests for donations do not even bring in enough to cover the site's hosting costs, never mind the time to improve and expand the site.
How to use Skyrim Search
Type the name of the location, character, apparel, weapon, item, spell, perk, book, or other code that you're looking for into the searchbar above. That's all there is to it! Or, you can choose the "Categories" page from the menu and browse or search individual categories of codes. When you search from the home page, keep an eye out for the link to see the full results if there are more than 5 results in a category.
The search routine searches for your complete phrase, so it's best to use short search phrases. The #1 reason for not finding what you're looking for is a spelling mistake.
What codes are included?
Skyrim Search includes codes from Skyrim and its official DLCs Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. The first 2 digits of DLC codes are colored in blue
, because they can change depending on your mod load order. If you can't find a code, please feel free to contact me
. However, before you do, make sure that the item in question is part of vanilla Skyrim or the official DLCs. The #2 reason for not finding a code is because the item in question is part of a mod, and not part of the official game.
Add to Home Screen
Add Skyrim Search to your home screen! We've got a nifty home screen icon so that you're never more than a tap away from Skyrim codes.
