Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch
This unofficial patch irons out a lot of the bugs and glitches that are part and parcel of any Bethesda RPG. There are countless tweaks made to the game using this patch so it would be pointless to list them all here, but importantly it fixes major gameplay features like quest bugs and NPC behaviour, meaning it will surely help make for a more refined and consistent gaming performance on Xbox One. Unlike many other mods, this patch works with (most) other mods, so you won’t have to worry about breaking your game.

This mod is pretty self-explanatory. It adds a Holotape in the Root Cellar at Sanctuary, which lets you add Caps, Weapons, Ammo, Stimpaks, food and beverages, and crafting materials, just to name a few. It also allows you to spawn a Legendary Deathclaw as a companion. An absolute must-download for anyone looking to experiment with mods.

Snap ’N Build
This mod adds hundreds of textures, objects and building materials to make the already-great (but clunky) Settlement building feature that little bit more awesome! Add buildings like greenhouses, brick houses, and features like balconies and railings.

Build Your Own Vault
This mod allows you to build an elevator at an original settlement location, which takes you down to an empty space where you’re free to build your own vault. Build rooms, stairwells, furniture – the lot! You can also direct settlers to head down and live in your newly created vault.

You can now drive around the wasteland in your very own UFO! There are new vehicles being added constantly by its creator, so there’s no shortage of different vehicles to test out.

Realistic Guns And Bullets Overhaul
This mod requires both Automatron and Far Harbour DLC add-ons to work, but it’s very much worth the price of admission. It improves weapon damage, accuracy, recoil, weight, and AP cost, with the goal of bringing more realism in game. Unfortunately it doesn’t work with other mods that change stats, names and/or descriptions of normal weapons, but as far as weapon mods go, this is the only one you need.

Full Dialogue Interface
One of the biggest complaints about Fallout 4 is that it provides only a very short summary of what a character can say in the dialogue options. This mod adds the full line of dialogue, so you have a better understanding and more choice when it comes to choosing how to respond.

This incredibly useful mod adds New Vegas-style ammunition crafting to Fallout 4. In the Settlement menu it allows you to build a Reloading bench, which is host to several methods for creating ammunition, including Ballistic, Energy and Unique ammo types.
- File size: 1.2mb
This mod usefully improves the visuals of the Pip-Boy map, making it easier to find locations of interest, differentiate between land and water, and supports DLC map additions.
