Explain further? It should be able to work in offline mode.

You should be able to. Try running it from a shortcut instead of Steam

Its steam thats the problem just go into your folders and run the skyrim.exe straight from there.  Also with the new mod system they are using you need an internet connection for startup.

I've played the game in offline mode on days when my internet connection was completely down, so it should work.

You have to start the game up at least once in online mode for it to work on offline or at least that was the case with me.

Considering you actually displayed the educational desecration necessary to spell the word "says" as "sais" TWICE, you do not deserve to play this game, online or offline. You must now spend the rest of your time reading books. Hurry!
