Bloggers often try to transform games by installing hundreds of modifications. RPG hits like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind have already been improved in a similar way, and now it’s Fallout 4’s turn. The author of the YouTube channel Ded String released a video showing a post-apocalyptic action RPG with 230 mods.
The installation of modifications did not significantly affect the schedule. Notable improvements include objects with high-resolution textures, increased draw range and more dense vegetation in places. The lighting enthusiast also tweaked it to make Fallout 4 appear less bright. Ded String also added modern uniforms and weapons to the game that were not provided by the developers. Such equipment stands out strongly against the general post-apocalyptic background.
In general, the blogger’s video leaves behind a controversial impression: improvements are noticeable, but not always appropriate. For example, in some places 8K textures stand out too much from the rest of the environment. Problems also arise with performance: when traveling through the level, there are noticeable drawdowns in the frame rate and objects that are drawn right before our eyes. Ded String did not specify the specs of their PC, so it is not known how much the installation of 230 mods affects optimizations.
