SPECIAL – Let’s mod Fallout 4 – WEEK III

With some delay due to sickness, I will continue with the Fallout 4 mod guide. This week will focus on some very impressive mods. Remember, before you start with this guide, be sure that all the already installed mods are up-to-date

Homemaker/Simple Intersection/Settlement Supplies Expanded:  First up are some old mods, but they have all received compatibility patches with each other.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager. Place all the compatibility patches at the end of the load order

True Storms – Wasteland Edition: This mod is a beauty. True Storms has gained a lot of renown from the Skyrim community. And now they are coming to Fallout 4. True Storms – Wasteland Edition is a complete overhaul to the storm systems in Fallout 4, including new unique weather, sound effects, particle effects, textures, intense visual effects, fogs, dust storms, hazardous radiation rain, and more…

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager. After that, download the compatibility patch for Dark Nights (dark). You can also download the other optional files ‘No Rolling Fogs’ (if you lose a lot of performance) and ‘Proper Sundown Times’ (makes nights longer). After that, you can also do the optional ‘Weather Effect to Self’. If you want this, I recommend to check the Nexuspage.

Functional Weapon Racks: Yes, you read that right. This mods adds a fully functional weapon rack. It is still in alpha, not all weapons are displayable (yet) and all weapons go to their default base world model. They don’t loose the modifications however, they aren’t show either when you use the weapon rack. Still, it’s a f*ck*ng working weapon rack!

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager.

Enhanced Blood Textures: This one is an oldie for people who have modded Fallout games before. This mod makes blood look much more realistic instead of the vanilla ketchup look.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager.

Long Range Bullet Holes: A small mod to make bullet impact effects and decals appear at long ranges. It also extends the time of wound decals and decal limits.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager.

Rain of Brass: This mod has the same idea as the one above. It makes the shell casings last longer.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager.

After you have installed the previous 3 mods, go to your fallout4.ini (located here: …\Documents\My Games\Fallout4). Don’t forget to save the file at the end.

Find [Display] and add these lines below it:

fDecalLifetime will increase the lifetime of all decals. The number can be changed to further increase or decrease the duration.
fDecalLOD0 increases the distance that blood decals appear.

Lowered Weapons: When playing first person, you always aim down the weapon. However, when you switch to 3rd person, you have your weapon lowered? That isn’t normal nor immerse. This mod fixes that slightly weird thing.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager.

Wattz Powerful Generators and Water Pumps: The vanilla settings for power generators and water pumps just don’t do it for me. This mod slightly improves the output without exaggerating.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager. Make sure the .esp loads after homemaker/SSEx/OCDecorator (see next week)

Quieter Settlements: In the beginning, the generator sound didn’t bothered me that much. However, after some days building new settlements I can only say 1 thing: those damn generators are loud enough to attract Deathclaws! This mod improves the loudness with a fully configurable installation menu!
