Fallout 4 – The Best Mods You Must Try

A lot of mods have been developed by the Fallout 4’s animated community since the release of the game couple of weeks ago for PC. It’s building up  quite a posse of interesting ones as the modding community gets to spend more quality time with the game.

Activating the super awesome modding powers for your version of Fallout 4 isn’t that hard either. Follow the quick guide below to get you upto speed with it.

You can activate the mods in your PC by following these three simple steps.

  • Step 1: Go to your documents folder, click your My Games folder, and then open the Fallout 4 folder. Here you can find three different .ini files.
  • Step 2: Open the “Fallout4Prefs.ini” file using Notepad. Scroll down until you find a section marked [Launcher]. Enter a paragraph break from the top and type the line “bEnableFileSelection=1”. If you have this line already in your .ini file but it’s set to zero, make sure to set it to 1. Save and close the file.
  • Step 3: Open Fallout4.ini with Notepad. Find the [Archive] section and find the line below it marked “SResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\”. Erase this and replace it with “sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\, MUSIC\, SOUND\, INTERFACE\, MESHES\, PROGRAMS\, MATERIALS\, LODSETTINGS\, VIS\, MISC\, SCRIPTS\, SHADERSFX\”. Save and close the file.


You also require a mod manager tool to activate the mods. You can download the tool from here. This is an unofficial tool as Bethesda hasn’t released their own mod manager tool, but it works and is easy to use.

Now that you’re all set to explore the world of modding in Fallout 4, we’ve made you this handy guide which would give you ample options to pick from as you embark on your mod-filled adventures –

1. Craftable Ammunition

You can replace Fatman Launcher’s nukes with your character’s son Shaun and fire him to destroy your enemies. This is kinda weird, right? But weird shit if often cool as is the case with this one.

This mod helps you to see what you exactly mean. It translates each and every dialogue and filters out the exact response. This mod will be helpful to you if you are not satisfied with the dialogue choice options of the game.

The options and tweaks of the game can be easily unlocked using the Fallout 4 configuration tool. You can  change the color of the UI, expand the game’s field of view, adjust mouse sensitivity, customize lighting and shadows and even unlock the frame rate using this tool. Really handy if you’re someone who likes to tinker around with things. Don’t try this unless you’re well accustomed with tools such as this one!

This mod solves the issue of dropping frame rates in the game. The Texture Optimization mod enhances the visual performance to a large extent and is definitely worthy of a try.

As obvious, modding is not recommended unless you know the risks involved and also how to use them and follow best practices.
