Best Fallout 4 Mods
Exploring the post-apocalyptic Commonwealth of Fallout 4 is fine on its own, but if you want something a little extra, here are a few of the best Fallout 4 mods you should check out.
As mods go, this one has a pretty simple goal: handle any bugs the official patches don’t take care of. If you want to take care of potential bugs and glitches, the unofficial patch mod for Fallout 4 is a good one to look into.
If you find the limited inventory frustrating, this Carry Weight mod lets you adjust both your default carry weight and your bonus carry weight. After that, all you need to do is change your capacity in-game to make Fallout 4 check the value, and you’ll have much more freedom to carry everything you need.
Tired of travelling through the same sort of environments? The Fallout Seasons mod lets you experience the Commonwealth in winter, spring, summer, or fall! You’ll have to change the seasons manually, but it still offers a nice change of atmosphere.
Better Mod Descriptions addresses the often unhelpful descriptions of weapons and armour in Fallout 4. Is a weapon that deals “exceptional” damage worth trying to get? What exactly is an “improved” rate of fire? The Better Mod Descriptions mod replaces these vague adjectives with percentages so you know for sure what you’ll get.
Likewise, if the vague dialogue choices frustrate you, the Full Dialogue Interface mod replaces them with the full text of what your character will say, instead of the one-word options the game shows by default.
There is currently a glitch in Fallout 4 that causes a companion you’ve dismissed to talk nonstop due to an error in their idle chatter values. This mod fixes it.
The Looks Mirror mod lets you add a mirror to settlements so you can change your character’s appearance any time you want.
So you want a companion along with you on your journey, but you’d like your dog by your side, too? Everyone’s Best Friend is a mod that makes a simple change: it lets you have both Dogmeat and a standard companion with you at the same time.
This mod may conflict with other companion-related mods. However, it integrates the Endless Babble bug fix mod mentioned above.
Finally, if you want to play Fallout 4 from a different perspective, the Alternate Start mod lets you begin the game as a different sort of character. You can be a staff member of Vault 111, a member of the Church of Atom, an Institute Scientist, and many others. Over 20 options are available, with lore-friendly faction interactions to increase the immersion.
