SPECIAList 4.x is all new! Designed around a simple concept: "Do you know what makes you SPECIAL?"

SPECIAList focuses on "conditional" Perks. SPECIALizations boosts your abilities and stats, at the cost other stats. To improve immersion and role-play, you will no longer be a jack-of-all-trades. Now you're a SPECIAList, with a very specific skill set, which make you very dangerous to raiders and super-mutants.

This mod is designed to play through with a new character. When exiting Vault 111 you will be offered the chance to modify your SPECIAL stats for the last time. Choose wisely! You will only be able to increase your SPECIAL stats twice at Level 25 & 50 (aside from Bobbleheads, etc) after this point.

To select a SPECIALization, go to the (furthest) trailer outside Vault 111. On the table, you will find the SPECIAList Holotape, which will give you Ingame details on the SPECIALizations and the many other SPECIAL changes. Inside the metal box under that table, you will see several Notes. Picking up the Note will that SPECIALization Perk. Choose only one! Adding more than SPECIALization will void all Perks.

Version 4.x is built around the idea of choice. The Creation Kit has been out for a while, and there are a slew of mods address the imbalance of Perks, Food, and Loot.

Here are just a few of my favorites that I find work well with SPECIAList 4.x. I recommend putting any of these mods above SPECIAList in your load order.

Ironman Survival Overhaul by DavidTheFalcon (my favorite Perk overhaul mod currently)
Everyone's Best Friend by Valdacil
Companion Overhaul 9000 GTX Supernova by Elianora (don't forget the Compatibility Patch)
Sexy Hancock by Dysthe (don't forget the Compatibility Patch)
West Tek Tactical Optics - Night Vision Thermal Vision Goggles and More by fadingsignal
Worsin's Immersive Power Armor Garage by Worsin 
Live Dismemberment by DeathclawAlpha
Fallout 4 Loot Overhaul by DarthSith (definitely want this above SPECIAList)
Immersive Water Purification by OldManWithers 
Hardcore Food by OldManWithers (another to put lower than Loot)


Small random adjustments, fixes, and preferences included to minimize plugins to handle small stuff. Some it inspired by other mods I've seen.

  • Dogmeat: Immune to fall damage (I'm tired of him falling off roofs and fire escapes)
  • Curie: Added Inspirational perk, it appeared to be missing from her perk list

Diamond City:
  • Added a public Water Pump and Cooking firepit to refugee area
  • The Key and Deed to Home Plate can now be stolen from the Mayor's Safe

  • Ethanol (Oil 2x) can now be crafted at Cooking Stations.

Fusion Cores:
  • Increased weight to 7.5.
  • Doubled drain.
  • Required for Robot Crafting and Fusion Reactors (with Workshop Patch).


If you're here, you probably know how to do this. But since everybody else includes it:

  • Nexus Mod Manager - Click "Download (NMM)" and let it do it's thing!
  • Manual Install - Put the ESP in the .../Fallout 4/Data/* Folder; likewise remove it to uninstall
