About this mod

Northern Springs is a massive DLC which adds a whole new location larger than both Nuka World and Far Harbor.

An enormous land to explore with new quests, new weapons, new armor, settlements and much more to find. A true DLC that naturally expands & adds beyond the Commonwealth further to the North in an area where Nuclear Winter ne

Update: 60+ interiors added to the location. That's even more than Far Harbor!

ESM file allows anybody to further patch the location, or add their own plugins without having to edit the Main Files! All Plugins will continue to work on further updates.

Profanity Warning: Nothing out of the Fallout universe norm, but there is a bit of it.
Upon loading the ESM, the option to visit Northern Springs will be at the very TOP LEFT corner of the map.
It is not required by the main quest to explore.

If you choose to play through the main quest, look for Quinton Grant standing by a Telephone Pole in Thicket Excavations.
But If you choose not to go through the main quests, one of the main characters will be hostile! But that choice is for the player to make!

Everything has been meticulously place. An unimaginable amount of time & work has been put into this mod. Lot of playtesting went on, so I hope all the quests work. The mod was worked on nearly every single day for almost 2 years. And will continue to be worked on as time goes on.

This isn't an addition inside of the Commonwealth. Although it does include quests and other things that work with the Commonwealth. It's a new location that expands adventure elsewhere to make the Commonwealth exploration experience much more vast.

Here's what to expect:

OVER 30 Quests
(And Radiant Quests also work)

4 jobs to choose from. That including:

Cage Fighter
Deathclaw Hunter
Book Collector
Bounty Hunter

4 new followers (As of now)
Fully functional, and voiced.
(The Vault-Tec Rep is an unlockable Companion)

3 settlements to find and build your own settlements:

Waker's Creek
Helen's Farm 
Weskan Farm

2 Playerhomes

TONS of new locations
And random ghost spotting

New Weapons and Armor
New ruthless enemies to encounter with many quests to unlock.

This DLC Mod is fully modular as it's an ESM just like any other Bethesda releases.

As of now: The Main protagonist isn't voiced.

There are a few craftable objects, but the main focus is that this is a new worldspace with new quests and locations.
One of the craftable objects is the terminals which can be built anywhere in any Worldspace, and logs your personal Northern Springs data.

Enhanced Lights and Effects - (Instant CTD, this can't be fixed)

If you're ever hungry and in need of a break from all the fighting, stop by the restaurant for a chill out vibe and sit down service.
Choose from a variety of foods all served to restore your health and make you happy.

The Vault-Tec Guy? HIM? YES THAT GUY. He's over 200 years old and he wants payback.

NS is ENORMOUS. Who knows what you may find out there. And it's probably out there to kill you!

I repeat: NS is ENORMOUS. Can you find all the 50+ Map Markers?

Survival of the fittest. Northern Springs is HARD. Expect to be at around a 40+ Level range to hold your own over there! You'll be pitted up against ruthless hordes of Feral Ghouls and punishing hailstorms of bullets! Even freezing giant Mirelurks!

  • Snow goes through ceilings. That's because Fallout 4 doesn't have any snow occlusion.
  • The Dead Prostitute Quest can sometimes can be faulty.
  • Some of the skeleton bones and other havok objects in some cells fall through the floors and ceilings.
  • Triggers can sometimes misfire, causing some issues. Especially with hostile NPCs.
  • Jared Fitch normally works fine, but can get stuck against walls.
  • Blaze freezes sometimes when he transfers from quest giver to companion. If he does this, reload a save and see if he doesn't.
  • When fighting in the arena, be careful with your weapons. It always takes away one of them. I've tried countless times coming up with a solution for this, but it happened every single time. I suggest putting your weapons in another container before stepping into the arena. 
  • As a Cage fighter: Also, if you have companions, leave them outside, they always get in the way.
