Fallout 76 Mod for Fallout 4 Allows Fans to Experience Bethesda’s Upcoming Narrative Prequel
A freshly released Fallout 76 mod for Fallout 4 allows players to experience Bethesda’s upcoming prequel ahead of its release this year.
Truth be told, this is not the full Fallout 76 experience, but players will be able to get a taste of the next Fallout installment. The mod has no dependencies on extenders or expansions and does not change any base game scripts, assets or objects as it’s 100% pure new Creation Kit forms and wrapper scripts.
The mod’s creator, SKK50, wrote the following description for the mod:
(1) As you wander the commonwealth any human NPCs in your active uGrids that are not locked (by enable state parents) are dynamically disabled. This hides 95% of rural folks and 80% of urban populations. Diamond city clears 52 of 65 NPCs. Imagine the rest are natural humans minding their own business.
The principle quest doors are automatically unlocked or opened for you (Diamond City, Covenant, Hagen), and you are automatically granted ownership of any workshops you come across for an access all areas ZeroNPC experience.
(2) Random mixed human griefers will spawn and follow you, issuing half-witted taunt messages. Kill them all and more will turn up in time, like roaches on bad meat. If you run far enough away, that group will get bored and leave you alone … for a while.
From V004 a player to griefer level matching system (N00b, Scrub, Plat, L33t) is introduced to allow the Fallout 4-76 experience to start at Vault 111 exit with a fresh player, and grows with you in the land of scavenging opportunity.
(3) Occasional nukes are launched at you with a minimal getaway warning. Sometimes they land back on the Griefers, as they are naturally unclever. Nukes will not be launched directly at your workshops, so you can do some arts and crafts in peace if you stay close. Note as this is a B.E.T.A. some nuke warnings may be missed, but your player deaths are helping debug my free product.
With the default settings you should be able to run from Vault 111 to Diamond City in less than 10 real minutes without meeting another human, taking a nuke strike and griefing on the way. Go check out Drumlin Diner or Covenant with 4-76 enabled, its really … spooky.
The mod can be downloaded through Nexusmods right here. Fallout 76 is slated for a release later this year on November 14 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you’re interested, read our view on why Fallout 76 could be Bethesda’s next hit game.
