Bethesda recently released their own mod system on Bethesda.net. Mods can also now be accessed through the Fallout 4 main menu interface. To access this, players need to update the game to version 1.5 and you will see the mod menu in the title screen. This lets you browse and search through a huge list of mods which you can download and install with a click of a button. Console players will be pleased to know that Bethesda will be releasing their new mod interface to XBOX ONE in May and the PlayStation 4 in June. Beta tests for mods on the XBOX ONE will commence soon. There are however some repercussions with Bethesda’s mod system. Be aware that if you install mods, ANY mods, the achievements in your game will be disabled. You’ll have to revert back to an older save without mods to earn achievements again.
After hearing about Bethesda’s new mod system, I decided to update my game to 1.5 and check out what was on there. I already had a few mods installed that I acquired from Nexus Mods. I decided to remove these just in case they caused any conflicts and start the game without any prior mods. Here are 8 of the weirdest and coolest mods I found.
1. Unlimited Followers
This was one of the first mods by expired6978 I saw pop up under the ‘popular’ category and with good reason. With this mod, you simply ask companions to follow you the way you normally would and voilà! Your companions will still mention how you’re replacing them with whoever you’ve asked to join you but that’s about it.
One thing I did find interesting was the fact that some NPCs would make comments like ‘my friend and my dog’ or pluralise ‘friends’ or ‘companions’. Even in combat when one of your followers is down, your other follower will comment on how they need help. I found this odd since the base game of Fallout 4 obviously doesn’t allow for more than one companion, so why are these NPCs even programmed to recognise the difference?
2. Craftable Cats
Need I say more? Seriously though, this mod by mm137 allows you to craft different types of cats only costing you a mere empty milk bottle. They’re crafted through the decor/misc section and actually boosts happiness to your settlement.
3. Sexy Hancock
4. Spring in the Commonwealth
5. Change Player Height (shorter)
6. Milk that Brahmin
7. Conquest: Build New Settlements and Camping
8. Companion Haircuts (human only)
(Damn straight Arturo)
