Hi all


Just signed up for this today as I have been having trouble with fallout 4.


I could not work out why it kept crashing after loading but since I disabled mods i found i can now play.


As my PC is able to run cod warzone on max settings.


Browsing the internet i seen people recommend this and was looking for some help or anyone that plays Fallout 4 what is the best way to run the mods i want.


Thanks in advance

Some general guidelines here:



Some further tips:

1. Many old and obsolete mods on nexusmods.com. Check the upload date, and the latest update, and see if there are any bug reports. Also helps to glance through the comments.

2. The mod with the most endorsements isn't always the best. Some of those endorsements are years old. Check out what's popular and what's trending.

3. Always read the requirements and note any reported conflicts.

4. There is a limit of 255 mods, but you probably won't have anything close the first time, so don't worry too much about it.

5. Be wary of mods that may conflict with something you already have.  A looks enhancer may conflict with a different one, or clothing that is designed for a different body. A Diamond City revision may conflict with another mod that changes the same area. When in doubt, leave it out.

6. Some caution in adding new homes and settlements. Once you have added a mod with a workshop, you can't remove it without ruining all your saves. You're just stuck with it. So choose wisely.


Some very basic mods that I would recommend (everyone here has a different list):

Caliente's Beautiful Bodies -- requirement for MANY looks enhancers and clothing mods

BodySlide and Outfit Studio -- also a common requirement

Looks Menu -- Likewise

Weaponsmith -- adds a good variety of craftable weapons

Armorsmith -- same for armor

Homemaker -- lots more things to craft in your settlements

Wearable Backpacks and Pouches -- makes it easier to lug the loot around

Better Settlers -- adds 240 new settlers

Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch -- really essential

Fallout 4 Script Extender -- essential

Armor and Weapons Keywords -- essential



Expansions that make your game richer and more interesting:

Tales from the Commonweath

Outcasts and Remnants

Fusion City Rising


Inside Jobs

Project Valkyrie



General utilities that aren't essential, but make the game easier and more fun to play:

Mod Manager

Scrap Everything

Spring Cleaning

Rich Merchants

Longer Power Lines

Settler Sandbox

Vivid Fallout


If you are a beginner, you may find Vortex easier to use than the Mod Organizer. The Nexus Mod Manager is no longer supported, so I wouldn't recommend that.
