Best Fallout 4 Mods: Table of Contents
This courage from Kinggath gives you a whole new way of creating settlements by introducing a SimCity-like system: zone your settlements to residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural land, and your settlers will build and cultivate their own homes and shops. their own crops. Your settlement will grow by itself as NPCs make changes and improvements to their buildings without you even having to micro-control them or place every last piece of furniture. Here is a writing about this imaginative and wonderful courage.
Transfer settlement ⭐
If you’re building a cool settlement, why not share it? This mod allows you to pack any settlement together as a plan and transfer it to another saved game or even upload it and share it with other players. You can even choose to pack pets, tamed creatures, power connections and even Sim Settlements plans together.
VTO (Vertical Takeoff Outpost) Mod ⭐
It’s a Vertibird you can live in. It does not technically fly – its movement is more akin to fast travel – but you can plant artisanal landing zones around the world and move your Vertibird to them. The living spaces are small and the bird needs to be fed coolant, but it is a cute looking home with a custom craft bench and fitted towers to keep the neighbors away.
Place anywhere adds a lot more flexibility and freedom to your settlements, and lets you move past static objects like workshop benches and place them where you want. You can also build anywhere on your premises – in trees, in the water and even inside other objects. Red collision warnings are a thing of the past. Requires Fallout Script Extender, which you will find on the last page of this list.
Tired of carrying all the junk you find in the world all the way back to your settlements? This courage makes your settlers lend a hand. Make salvage beacons at your chemistry station, and when you’re out exploring and your pockets are getting full, just fill a container with your junk, drop a beacon on it, and your settlers will come and collect everything for you. They will then place it on your work table to save you the trip.
Workshop Synth Production
With so much focus on building things in Fallout 4, it’s surprising that Bethesda did not even think about this. This courage will let you make your own settlers in your workshop. Synthetic settlers. Turn off your radio heater, because now you can populate your various outposts with (hopefully) friendly Synths. DIY has just jumped to the next level.
Wall flow wires
Running power lines around your Fallout 4 buildings has become much easier with this useful mod created by Daedragon. Since you build with crunchy, rusty metal walls full of holes or wooden walls that it would be easy to make holes in, why can you not run electrical wires straight through them? This mod adds wires that you can click into place on the back of standard ducts so electrical wires can pass through your walls. Also works with your roof.
Do you need to get away from your crowds of dead-eyed settlers for a little quiet time? Basement Living adds 10 self-contained basements and bunkers to give you your very own cozy getaway. You can attach a basement to any building you want, and each comes with a fuse box that provides 100 power, and a work table so you can decorate it the way you want.
You do not have to stick to the settlements that Fallout 4 gives you. Now you can make your own pretty much anywhere you want. This mod adds campsites that can be located in the area you choose, and if you are happy with the location, you can turn it into a fully functional settlement. You can build as many as 10 new settlements and dismantle them as well.
Faction housing inspection
It’s nice that factions give you housing when you join them, but their offerings are typically not a place you really want to spend a lot of time on. These mods turn these fraction dumps into more beautiful and spacious homes with work tables, a gym, lovely decorations and plenty of extra storage space. It is available for Vault 81, Prydwen, Railroad, Castle and The Institute.
If you have Contraptions Workshop DLC for Fallout 4, you will definitely want this mod, which greatly enhances the factories of your settlements. It adds a number of common sense features, such as conveyor belts that take junk directly from your workshop’s furniture and deposit finished goods back in it. It also gives you new machines such as looms to create Vault outfits and faction equipment, a power armor, a distillery for making cola and booze, and forges for melee and fist weapons. There is even an automatic butcher, to decompose creatures (and humans) into meat, bones and leather.
The settlers who respond to your radio beacon are typically a little … well, boring. Most of them are dressed fairly similarly and they can be difficult to distinguish without personally dressing them differently. This mod adds over 150 new settlers, giving the vacant corn growers arriving on your turf a bit more personality. Another mod, Don’t Call Me Settler, will also give them unique names.
Looks like Mirror
If you want to adjust or change the appearance of your character after leaving your home at the beginning of Fallout 4, you can do so with a plastic surgeon. This mod allows you to do the same from any of your settlements by adding a mirror to your workshop. Simply place the mirror on any wall you want and using it opens the menu that allows you to change your look.
It can be cumbersome to decorate your residence, and even after carefully placing barter items on shelves or tables, they can and will likely be overturned later by a clumsy settler or companion (or you). This mod not only makes the placement of items easier (looted items can now be moved just like static items when using the workshop menu), but lets you lock them in place so they can not be overturned. Perfect.
Higher settlement budget
The size of your Fallout 4 buildings is quite severely limited: they can only get so big and use so many objects. It stinks if you build a large base and suddenly have to stop. Higher Settlement Budget mode solves this, but remember adding more objects can degrade performance or even slow down your game.
Homemaker gives you more options for your settlements. It includes two new plantable crops, several walls and fences, 30 new types of candles and new containers such as ammunition boxes and cabinets. You can even use meat bags if you like to store your extra supplies in bags of meat. Some do.
