Top 5 mods I want to see in Fallout 4


The mod community for Bethesda games has always been one of the best, even dating back to the Elder Scrolls. The fact that their games are so expansive and capture the community’s imagination so vividly lends itself perfectly to some incredibly awesome and sometimes bizarre mods, and it’s safe to say that the mod community today has grown tremendously since the previous installments of the Fallout Franchise. The potential possibilities for mods in Fallout 4 are practically endless, but here are 5 mods that I would like to see in Fallout 4.


5. 2015 Graphics and Textures Mod

There has been a vocal minority of Fallout 4 critics that are very unsatisfied with the graphics and textures in the game. It leads me to question whether or not most of them have ever played a Fallout game, because the while graphics are important to a degree, gameplay and experience are why we play Bethesda RPGs. You can blame console compatibility or whatever else you want for your unhappiness with the graphics, but the beauty of mods are that these complaints can be fixed. Is the water not wet enough for you? Do you want more cloudy clouds? Just sit back and wait because these are the types of mods that always get made.


4. Elder Scrolls/Fallout Crossover Mod

When one company has multiple franchises that are so similar yet so incredibly different, it is only natural to fantasize that the worlds could someday collide. Batman vs. Superman, King Kong vs. Godzilla, the Avengers movies are all proof that we are in the age of the crossovers. I’d be totally lying if I said that it wouldn’t be completely badass to walk into a room of Super Mutants and laid everyone down with a FUS RO DAH before finishing them off with some Bloody Mess headshots. As a fan of both franchises, an official crossover of Fallout and Elder Scrolls would be a disaster, but that’s what mods are for.


3. The Walking Dead Mod

Maybe I’m the only one that is not sick of zombies, but the Fallout 4 engine and environments lend themselves perfectly to the addition of a more traditional zombie horde. I know we have feral ghouls, but I imagine more of a slow moving endless supply of undead that can stumble along the wasteland either alone or in herds. This is not a revolutionary mod idea since there have been zombie mods in the past and some amazing and others needing more work. Fans of the Walking Dead have never quite received an action game that lives up to the awesomeness of the comics or AMC television show. In fact games like Walking Dead: Survival Instinct were just flat out bad. Major developers screw up TV and movie adaptations to video games almost every time… Mod community Walking Dead fans need you!


The new settlement building and structure crafting elements added to Fallout 4 bring a whole new Minecraft-esque aspect to the game which spells virtually unlimited hours you can spend crafting and designing small utopias amidst all of the harshness of the commonwealth. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a mod that breaks the barriers and allows for the entire map to be fully customized and restructured. It would be even cooler to see completely new looking structures added to the build list as well. Walls of clean brick or steel, streets of gold, a drawbridge, anything that could break away from the monotony of the standard Fallout aesthetic would be awesome. While we are at it lets add and all out free floating creative mode.

1. Iron Man Suit Mod

Immediately after entering the Power Suit armor for the first time in Fallout 4, the first thing that went off in my head was how this has got to be turned into a more flushed out and robust version of the Iron man mod we saw in Fallout New Vegas. Upgrading the HUD to JARVIS, adding flight and repulsors blasts would be any Marvel fan’s dream. The sky’s the limit, I’m sure they could even create a quest line that takes inspiration from the original Iron Man movie. Imagine a set of missions where you are captured by raiders and forced to build the suit from scratch while being held prisoner and make a heroic escape. I don’t know about you, but my dream would be crafting a Hulkbuster armor set and laying waste to hordes of Super Mutants.


Unfortunately, my intelligence perks are nowhere near high enough to make any of these mods happen myself. This is just a list of things I would like to see as a fan. Mod support from Bethesda will be released sometime in “Early 2016” and for the first time ever, the console versions of Fallout 4 will also support mods, although you should hold your breath that the console versions will see some of the more risqué ones.

Let us know in the comments below what mods you can dream up.
