Finally, it has happened. A major thing that separated PC Fallout to console Fallout has been bridged (well, partially). Ever since Todd Howard announced at Microsoft’s E3 2015 Press Conference that mods will be coming to the Xbox One, players that have never had modding capabilities have been dying for a chance to get them.
Bethesda’s website, which is hosting the mods, has been under a heavy load as of late, which has caused outages. It seems they fixed the problem, which is why we waited a day to report on it.
You can view information about the official Creation Kit in the video below.
Now, to be fair, the mods available on Xbox One don’t even come close to the numbers available on PC. However, there’s still MANY, MANY mods to take advantage of, with the numbers growing every day. It also seems all of the most popular PC mods are finding their way, one way or another, into the console version.
Unfortunately, I have no way of testing out the mods, as I don’t have an Xbox One. However, through thorough research, I’ve come to find out the best mods to get you all started. It also helps to mention that PS4 console mods will hopefully be coming in the near future.
Full Dialogue Interface
This one tells you what your character will say during dialogue, instead of how Bethesda implemented dialogue, where it’s a brief summary of what will be said. Search it up on your Xbox One or add it to your library here. Mods description reads:
The Full Dialogue Interface mod makes the game display the full lines of what your character is going to say in conversation, instead of just a paraphrase. It also revamps the interface so that the game will now display dialogue options in a list.
Modern Firearms (Gunsmith Edition)
This one is fairly simple yet incredibly cool. Add it to your library here. The mods description reads:
Shortest instruction of this mod:
- Added 25 weapon PLATFORMS in the game, not 25 weapons.
- Loot from enemies, buy from vendors, SCRAP those modern guns for custom components.
- Script is implanted in version 3, however you need an introduction of it. It’s currently unavailable for console.
- Put this mod in the bottom of load order if possible.
Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch
The community knows what they want, and thanks to Bethesda’s modding tools, they’re able to get exactly that. Add it to your library here. Mods description reads:
A comprehensive bugfixing mod for Fallout 4. The goal of the Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch (aka UFO4P) is to eventually fix every bug with Fallout 4 not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package.
Let’s face it.. Bethesda’s settlement building could use some work. Add it to your library here. Mods description reads:
Build your own “Greenhouse”, “Bunker”, Industrial style bridges and rooms, “Capsule” homes, solid looking brick houses. Shack windows and roofs. And a lot more in the “Real Estate” module – balconies, posts, railings, luxury and still lore friendly interiors, stairs, etc… In-game configuration menu which allows you to actually control what you see in your “workshop” menu. No more over-cluttering menu with unneeded items!
Any Mod Any Weapon
This one is just plain fun. No bones about it. Add it to your library here. Mods description reads:
This mod Randomizes the weapons of the enemies of the commonwealth as if there using the AnyWeaponAnyMod Mod and is compatible with the mod as well.
