Hello everyone.  

 

So, I recently received Fallout 4 and the Season Pass over the holiday and have been wanting to add mods before I begin my playthrough.   However, I was unaware of the message I received when installing mods with the Mod Manager - saying I need to make ini edits to Fallout4Custom and Fallout4Prefs.   However, I have a couple of questions I want to ask before I start making any changes, and I just wanted to make sure I'm up-to-date on what to do and what not to do to enable mods in my copy of Fallout 4.

 

So, question one - are the edits necessary if one has the script extender installed?   I'm not entirely familiar with what this ini edits do, so forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question at all.   

 

Question two - the nexus wiki page link the message provided me with (http://wiki.nexusmod...od_Installation) contradicts the message and Gopher's video on enabling mod support for the PC version of the game.   What exactly would I need to edit - Prefs and Custom, just Custom, just Prefs, nothing at all...?   

 

Hopefully you guys can help me out, and thank you for your time.    :)

A couple of times I've seen people who used Gopher's advice be unable to get mods working.  I suggest following the wiki link you posted.  It's what I use and give to everyone new to modding.

So just add the lines to Fallout4Customs as the wiki link says and leave Prefs alone?

Yup.
