SPECIAL – Let’s mod Fallout 4 – WEEK V

New sounds when slaying your enemies, better textures for weapons. And some serious upgrades for the environment! That’s what we have planned for this weeks ‘Let’s mod Fallout 4’

F4SE: The Fallout Script extender has been released in an experimental version. This is a modder’s resource that expands the scripting capabilities of Fallout 4. It does so without modifying the Fallout4.exe, so there are no permanent side effects. It will be more and more often used by future mods

Installation: Download en extract all in the main Fallout 4 folder

Realistic Weapon Sounds: This beauty of a mod alters the sound weapons make from the Bethesda way to a much more realistic way. And since Fallout 4 is much more shooting than the previous ones, this mod is more than welcome!

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

ScratchMade – New Double Barrel Shotgun textures: New textures for the shotgun. I figured: a new sound requires also a new texture, right?

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

ScratchMade – New Combat Shotgun and Rifle textures: Yup, also new textures for the combat shotgun and rifle.

Installation: Install with Nexus Mod Manager and download. Or the other way around 😉

Companion Infinite Ammo: Your companions have infinite ammo for their default weapon. That’s why I always stick with their default weapon in the previous Fallout games. But now, I want to give them better weapons. I mean, what’s the point of modding the weapons if only you are going to use them?

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

Button Lowered Weapons – First and Third Person: This mod is a replacement for the ‘Lowered Weapons‘ mod, because this mod gives you much more control over the lowered animation

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

Realistic Death Physics – No Animations: Now that you and your companion kill in style, we have to make sure the immersion sticks. Sadly, we need this mod for that, because the vanilla settings are a bit too much in my opinion.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

Vivid Fallout – Landscapes: This mod and the next one focus on retexturing the landscape in Fallout 4. Both seem to do the same, but this one seems more focused on the nature side of the landscape.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager. I picked the ‘Best Choice’ version

Commonwealth HQ Landscape Overhaul WIP: This mod and the previous one focus on retexturing the landscape in Fallout 4. Both seem to do the same, but this one seems more focused on the urban landscapes.

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager. I choose to overwrite the Vivid Fallout – Landscapes when asked (‘Yes to mod’)

Fallout 4 Seasons Project: I love this mod! Fallout 4 has more colours than Fallout 3, but sadly nature is still dead. Even though footage from Fukushima and Chernobyl show that nature doesn’t die, in Fallout 4 there isn’t a single leave on a tree. The Fallout 4 Season Projects brings nature back to life, and you can even pick when it’s alive! You can choose summer, fall, winter or spring, each with its own look!

Installation: Download the season you like (and I suggest the ‘More Grass’ version) and install it with Nexus Mod Manager. Overwrite when asked

Summer
Fall
Winter
Spring

FPS dynamic shadows – Shadow Boost: A plugin for Fallout 4 to dynamically control the shadow draw distance depending on your FPS.

Installation: Download the files from here. Once downloaded,  copy xinput1_3.dll, ShadowBoost.asi and ShadowBoost.ini to the game’s main folder, i.e. where Fallout4.exe is located.

Fr4nsson’s Light Tweaks: This mod fixes the lights from Fallout 4 both indoors and outdoors. Light doesn’t bounce around indefinably, lighting up a whole room. The mod also removes skylights a.k.a FakeLights indoors. It does also remove bloom if you want to (look in file section). It goes very well with Darker Nights.

(Note: I am still not sure if I am going to continue using this mod. Even thou light is much more realistic this way, the game has to stay enjoyable for me)

Installation: Download and install with Nexus Mod Manager

Enhanced Wasteland Preset: This one is an ENB preset for Fallout 4. I love this one because it tweaks a lot of the colours. Be sure to check out the website and see it this preset is something for you. Note: a preset will cause some lag during start-up due to the settings being loaded.

Installation: Place all the files within the Enhanced Wasteland folder to your root Fallout 4 game directory (\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout 4)
