New Fallout 4 Mod Improves Performance By Eliminating Objects

By | 8 months ago 

Legendary modder akkalat85 redevelops one of his most famous additions from Skyrim to fit Fallout 4, as the Insignificant Object Remover is now available for Vault Dwellers.

For those gamers unfamiliar with what the original Skyrim mod does, the Insignificant Object Remover reduces the density of any insignificant object to 0, which in turn removes them from the game while simultaneously boosting its performance. While it might not be enough to salvage a Fallout 4 run while using an on-board graphics card, akkalat85’s mod will be a welcome addition for those Vault Dwellers whose computers were struggling to run the game at a decent visual quality setting.

The Fallout 4 version of the mod is almost identical to its predecessor, and will prevent the random generation of items like rubble, kelp, small stones and various other smaller signs of the apocalypse that don’t require player interaction. To install it, players will have to use the Nexus Mod Manager and activate the mod. According to akkalat85, what load order players’ pre-existing mods and the Insignificant Object Remover are placed in shouldn’t matter, but to be extra careful, gamers should place it after any previously installed mods that edit the game’s landscape.

While the Insignificant Object Remover is one of the more exciting quality-of-life mods to come along since Fallout 4‘s release, the modding community has been quick to embrace additions that are made to be aesthetically pleasing or funny as well. After all, some people really just want to play Fallout 4 in Geralt’s Witcher gear, and it’s that kind of simple yet exciting possibility that captures the spirit of Bethesda’s thriving modding community.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that without any mods at all, Fallout 4 is still one of the most exciting game experiences to emerge within the past few years. Part of the reason for Fallout 4‘s success is the incredible depth of content available within the base game, a feat made even more remarkable by the fact that one player has dedicated their entire playthrough to finding every secret location in Fallout 4 and still hasn’t finished their quest. While the daunting suggestion that the game contains well over 400 hours of content might be intimidating to some players, it’s comforting to know that spending money on a Bethesda title will certainly give gamers the opportunity to get their money’s worth.

Those looking to add even more hours of content to Fallout 4 might not have to wait much longer, either. Bethesda recently suggested via Twitter that Fallout 4 DLC isn’t far off from being completed, which should have gamers both excited and looking to clear their schedules in the near future for what is sure to be a lengthy trip back to the Bostonian Wasteland. If people embrace akkalat85’s mod the same way they did his Skyrim version, that trip will also be a little bit smoother and a lot less cluttered, too.
