The wait is nearly over for us console groupies. May will see mods making their way to Fallout 4 on Xbox, with PS4 following close by in June. While the PC world has had the pleasure of mods for years, it is new territory for consoles.
Fallout 4 mods can be made on PC right now. Once you have made your mod, it can be uploaded to Bethesda. The best part? Well it's almost free reign. As long as you don't break copyright or create a porn mod, Bethesda is keen to let it be in the mod store.
Bethesda wants to police mods as little as possible. The only things the publisher wants to take down are illegal stuff, according to the game director. Source: IGN
As I eagerly await the releases, I have spent hours gazing over the PC mods, making a mental list of all of the treats I will download as soon as I can. Here are some of the mods I am most excited for;
Become a Ghoul
This is fricken bad-ass. I am actually amazed it isn't an option in the in-built character creation (although that may make the story line a little harder to believe). One of my favourite things about Fallout is being able to customise my character. The #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/869239">Ghoulification mod is next level. I'd love to be an ass-kicking radiation-fuelled psycho-vault-lady. Bring it on.
Clean those dirty items
One thing that really pisses me off about the Fallout 4 wastelands is how in the future everybody has just turned into dirty cretins. Sure, the world has gone to shit, and there are mutant animals everywhere, and raiders wanting to kill you at every corner. That doesn't mean you can't get a damp cloth and wipe the dirt off your belongings though! #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/859034">The Restore items mod fixes this huge annoyance and gives you the ability to have nice clean items around your house.
Cats, Cats, Cats!
Can I has this mod pleaze? The #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/858261">Haus of Klau#en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/858261">s mod lets you decorate your house with sweet cat paintings. If that is not enough then check out the #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/769033">Craftable Cats mod. Ever wanted cats roaming your settlement? This is your chance.
Fire weapons are my all time fav. Load up my Skyrim save and you will see a fire sword equipped or enter Dying Light and witness my amazing fire katana. Soon, I can slay the menaces of the wasteland with a #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/832440">fire axe!
Have you ever wondered how far away you are from getting to bang Caitlin (or your preferred companion of choice)? Well worry no more, as the #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/830932">Visible Affinity mod shows you how much your companion likes you when you make an affinity altering decision.
No one sleeps in your bed
There is nothing worse than creating an awesome, pimped out house with a luxurious bedroom only to arrive home and find Sturges asleep in it. Damn it Sturges I made a drug den house for you to sleep in! The #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/804489">This is My Bed mod allows you to craft a bed that only you can sleep in.
Drink Milk from a Brahmin
This is just so weird I can't not install it. Feeling thirsty? Then use the#en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/753954"> Milk That Brahmin mod to gather drinkable milk from Brahmins. Neat.
Craftable Plastic Surgeon
I need this. You know why? Because my dumb ass accidentally killed the only plastic surgeon in the game and now I am stuck with my stupid face. #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/872286">The Craftable Plastic Surgeon mod lets you pop down a surgeons chair in any settlement, and get that much desired new face.
Traffic Cone Hats
The #en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/787102">Wearable and Lootable Traffic Cones mod is pretty self explanatory. I have no great reason to explain why I want this mod. But I do. It would be hilarious.
