This Fallout 4 mod turns The Commonwealth into a dense Skyrim-like forest

Posted by: [email protected] on PCGamesN June 3, 2020

If you've played Fallout 4, you'll know its setting is pretty different to the one you'll see in Bethesda's other RPG behemoth, Skyrim. Where The Elder Scrolls V is all about forests, fauna, and colossal mountains full of shouty monks, Fallout 4's Commonwealth is a post-apocalyptic wasteland littered with wreckages and Nuka-Cola bottles. However, if you'd like to bring the two a little closer together, a new Fallout 4 mod might be just the thing - it turns the RPG game's map into a "dense and overgrown forest landscape".

The mod - simply titled 'A Forest' and created by Oynlen and DeathByKitty - adds trees, grass, and plants to Fallout 4's Commonwealth, using "two separate frameworks combined for a very dense population of trees". The mod brings together a bunch of different creators' models and previous works, and has been "balanced with visuals". From the images shared on the mod page, the result is very pretty.

The good news is the mod won't get in the way of immersion, either - "grass density has been restricted to places it should be seen naturally, so no grass should be seen growing on roads or in buildings", the page says. Sweet.

This Fallout 4 mod makes The Commonwealth look like Red Dead Redemption 2

Fallout 4 - July 30, 2020

Fallout 4 boasts a pretty hefty and impressive open world as-is, but if you're keen to give it an overhaul in the style of another of the open-world games genre's big hitters, a new mod might be just your cup of tea. Or moonshine, for that matter. A brand-new texture overhaul mod for Bethesda's 2015 RPG turns The Commonwealth into a "vibrant imaginary desert environment" reminiscent of Red Dead Redemption 2.
