This Mod List and Load Order Guide is the fully detailed process to achieve a Great Fallout 4 Modding experience with Smooth FPS and Close to Bethesda's Fallout 4 Game Idea
.


{-The Most Complete, Performance Friendly and Endorsed for Fallout 4-}


- #3 File of the Month - August 2017 - 117 Votes -
 - Just 170 mod pages out of 26.3k reached such a prestigious achievement and this is one of them -




 Requirements


- Fallout 4 + Season Pass or Fallout 4 Goty Edition  - (NO High Quality Textures DLC) - To disable that DLC you just unselect it from the Steam library page.



 Suggestions (Read at least Once)  <-----------------


1) Mod List is in Order, Overwrite Everything unless I say different and NEVER use LOOT to sort the Load Order.

2) Green Mods are Must Have or Highly Recommended Mods, so I want you or suggest for you to install all of these.

3) Yellow Mods are Optional but still Recommended. You can freely skip these to enhance performance, stability or to play an intended way.

4) Read the Official Mods' Descriptions to know how a mod works in-game, leave an endorsement to that mod if you loved it and donate to the official author/s if you want. 

5) If i don't say wich file to download or the installation text next to the mod is empty, then you just have to install the main file only or one of your preference if there are more.

6) If you have doubts or you are not sure what you doing, Just Ask, its better to improve modding knowledge and to avoid useless mistakes.

 IMPORTANT PATCHES

 - Radrose Usability Enhancements - During installer select Enable on Empty Bottles and Workbench Perk Requirements categories in the first panel and unselect the Visible Weapons enabled option in the following panels.

 - Assorted Compatibility Patches - During Installer select VIS Patch Vanilla Weight under the first category, then unselect the following options on the next panels:  Eli's Armour Compendium, PreWar Binoculars, Salvage Beacons, West Tek Tactical Optics, Immersive HUD and Sim Settlements



 IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR STABILITY AND COMPATIBILITY

 - Wrye Bash - Download the main file and run it. During Installer select until completed, then select Fallout 4 option and unselect the View Readme. (Don't install the tool inside ProgramFiles or ProgramFiles(x86) folders).
Once Opened, ignore the warnings. (If you have installed Better Locational Damage mod you must select the BLD - Leveled Lists - DLC.esp, after that right click over the Bash Tags window on the bottom right of the program and select Delev, then do the same and select Relev as well).
Scroll to the bottom of the load order and Select the Bashed Patch.esp box. Right click on it and select Rebuild Patch. In the popup window select Build Patch.
You can close the program now.

 - FO4Edit - Create a folder named FO4Edit in the Fallout 4 Main Directory one, download the main file and extract it to the FO4Edit Folder you created. Now follow the next steps carefully.

Open the application, right click on the list and select the "Select None" option. Tick only DLCRobot.esm and select OK.
Wait for it to load, then right click on DLCRobot.esm and select Apply Filter for Cleaning, wait for it to finish.
Right click on it again and select Remove Identical to Master Records, wait the timer to reach the 0 and select OK, wait for it to finish.
Right click on it again and select Undelete and Disable References, wait for it to finish.
Close the program by selecting the red cross icon on the top right of the program window, when a pop-up window will appear unselect Backup Plugins and select OK. 

Now do the same for the following files one at a time.
DLCWorkshop01.esm 
DLCCoast.esm 
DLCWorkshop02.esm 
DLCWorkshop03.esm
DLCNukaWorld.esm




  ENB & Graphic


These are based on upcoming upload of the BrB Beta v3 you can find in my files as soon as uploaded.

 - ENB Series - Download the file and open the Wrapper folder. Extract the d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e.dll to your fallout 4 main folder. 
 - BRB ENB - Download my BRB ENB update file and extract all files to Fallout 4 main folder. If you want more quality you can enable the EnableDepthOfField or the
EnableDetailedShadow lines inside the Enb menu that can be opened with Shift + Enter.

In the opening intro of fallout 4, there's an engine bug of enb that doesn't detect sunlight casting on environment. By Default the fix is enabled on the enb, but while loading the entering on the vault 111 you must open the enb menu with Shift + Enter and unselect the UseOriginalObjectsProcessing line and then you are fine for the entire game.
