Fallout 4 mod support is now officially live on Xbox One and the most popular mods on day offer cheats, busty characters, vegetation, and a suite of options to alter guns.
Fallout 4’s Xbox One mod support launched yesterday and Microsoft loyal console gamers can finally start to alter Bethesda’s latest masterpiece the same way that PC gamers have been doing for months. Mod support will arrive on PS4 later this summer, but for now the Xbox One is the only console that supports the approved Fallout 4 mods. As predicted, users are rushing to the download page and overwhelming the service with traffic in an attempt to download all the best apps in the first day or two.
The full dialogue interface was one of our favorite mods on the PC and it seems like a quick favorite for console gamers, as well. It’s not at the very top of the list in terms of most downloads, but it’s still holding its own after a day of traffic. As gamers might guess, the most popular mods right away are the cheat mods and the mods that make characters a little more sexy (though not nude, because that’s against the rules).
The most popular mod at launch is definitely the Cheat Menu, which allows players to stock up on Stimpacks, caps, and lots of other resources without doing any of the legwork. All mods, aesthetic or otherwise, do make it impossible to unlock trophies though. So players who are worried about their achievement score might want to beat the game unaltered before jumping into the world of cheats.
Shortly behind the Cheat Menu mod on the list of most downloaded are a few gun mods and the Busty Enhanced Vanilla Body Replacer. This body changing mod doesn’t break Bethesda’s ‘No nudes’ rule, but does push the limits by making the female models extra busty.
Not every PC mod is making its way to the console and even some of the ones that are needed to be toned down to meet the system requirements of the Xbox One. The popular Re-Growth mod, which adds vegetation to the world of Fallout 4, explains the changes in its description…
“This version of the mod will deliver mostly the same experience as the full version. For example, you’ll get the tree’s, flowers, grass, and other flora related textured, but you won’t get overgrown buildings, mossy roads, and vined walls. All in all, it’s the perfect balance for consoles. Both eyecandy, and functional.”
Although some mods are slightly nerfed and there is a limited selection, the fact that Fallout 4 mods are now available on a console is still very exciting. The modding community has been PC exclusive for a long time and hopefully this will lead to more love for the dedicated modders throughout the gaming community.
