    I am absolutely open to any criticism people have about my knowledge. The guide has only grown since its launch, thanks to all those who have given their great insight and advice! If you find something that I could improve or correct, PLEASE tell me so I can either add, edit, or remove what you've mentioned.

    Regarding mods I use:

    If you're unsure, ask. I'll be happy to reply. However, most of my mods are custom made including my Raider Replacements, so if "custom mod" isn't the answer you're looking for then I'm very sorry kupo :(

    Also here are the Discords which have armors and weapons that will definetly hold you over for awhile:

    - ZARGE's Secret Lair

    - FX's Discord, click the Discord Server button

    - Ardent's Armory

    - User Cerruti1889 for all the awesome settlement objects used in the screens, his work is on the servers above, so be sure to check them out!

    Just to clarify the guy who makes pretty static objects to decorate settlements in the screenshots, it's me …
    Thanks to quote ALL modders

    I run alot of heavy script mods, Thuggyverse mods, Sim Settlers 2, Atomic Radio/TFTC, Fourville, NPC Travels, AN2 + CAP by flashyjoel, Commonwealth responders, South of the Sea, Vivid Fallout, Enhanced Lighting and FX, and Spitfire(enhanced Muzzle FX) which comes around 400 + mods. I don't have any of these recommended mods installed yet besides Antonix35 mods(High Physics FPS, Sprint Stuttering, Weapon Debris fix) and bakascrapheap but my game seems to run around 30-40 fps and freezes after a long run. I'm looking to boost my FPS and remove freezes.

    My PC specs are GTX 1660Ti 6GB Vram, 32GB RAM, and a 2TB SSD. I was also wondering if I should use Boston FPS fix or Fo4Fi FPS fix. I'm looking to boost my FPS and remove freezes.

    I'm also using  Stuttering and Memory Patch ENBoost which also comes with a d3dcompiler_46e.dll file and a d3d11d.dll file. Is incompatible with Vulkan renderer? And is which more better, Vulkan or ENBoost? 

    I also use Longer Area respawn. Does the Corpse Cleaner interfere with that mod and NPCs Travel
    From that mod author.
    "?Please do not delete/scrap this mod's NPC (dead body) by the function of other mods.
    This does not cause a crash, but you will no longer encounter deleted NPCs.
    Unfortunately, there is currently no best solution."

    Eh... I dont know what this is about. Guide is says improving performancee right? Ok.
    I download and start gme with f4se... no fps improvement.
    I get the enb files... no fps improvement
    I read about a mod that changes the game natural  enviroment, i skip it, no fps improvement

    I decide to read... theres mention of the ancient boston fix... and somewhere bellow, someplace... probably near the end, textures are mentioned.

    Its common knowledge that replacing textures is the most important thing about improving performance... 

    Maybe this guide is trolling me?!? Now Im considering redownloading the game and following a serious fps boost guide.

      not sure where you're coming from. i've followed this guide thoroughly and it helped my game out tremendously. don't just take my word for it, there are plenty of others in this thread that have said the same. the fact that you believe that getting f4se and enb will magically improve performance, and the fact that you skipped some sections of the guide tells me you're either ignorant or simply new. if it's the latter, let us help you out. in terms of other "serious" guides, not many out there that are UTD, hence the creation of this one

    Shoutout from real, actual Fallout Brazil...playing Fallout (talk about inception)

    Great guide, greatly helped me after I decided to do a clean reinstall and go for an essential only mod playthrough, after facing several CTD's while running only a 70's range plugin load order (I just don't have the patience to use Xedit, so much s*** happening in my life)

    Just my 2cents : Vulkan renderer now works with Enb!
    Have a good one Blot ;)

    BOSTON FPS FIX is obsolete at moment, why this: Fo4FI_FPS_fix [nexusmods.com]

      It's really not though. There are also much better alternatives to Fo4fi, and I actually mentioned it if you read the omitted section in the precombines column.

    I don't understand, I did everything exactly as this guide shows, i even know for a fact that the changes have stayed, i double checked the files, the enb is running...but my framerate for the boston/mass fusion area is still down to 25fps...

    i dont know what i could have possibly missed

    *edit - im a muppet. my load order was all wrong. i put fps fix at the bottom and its all dandy now

    Great guide! Biggest change in this game regarding FPS is definitely shadows. If anyone is struggling for performance. That's usually your first fix!

    Also. I noted about in your guide about Enhanced lights and FX (ELFX) giving big drops in FPS.

    l'm glad to inform you there IS a fix! Download this mod: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/30253

    It removes dynamic shadows from most sources (not the sun, so you keep those shadows), this will solve your FPS issues indoors, and also help outdoors too. I got 45 FPS in corvega (In the room with Jared) and now with this mod, jumped straight to 75. Visuals still remain great. Keeping that dark atmospheric feel of ELFX, but without the performance hit. 30FPS is 100% worth the graphical hit IMO

    Hope this helps!

    Great guide. I don't have fps problem right now. I was curious if you have any recommendations on ctd fix, game freeze troubleshoot, and stability?

      Not many mods out there in terms of bug fixing and crash fixing, only thing I recommend is to make sure that all your mods play nicely with each other and that your loadorder is properly set, it can be a day and night difference if done properly. As modders, the best thing we can do is avoid the possibility of a crash or freeze, there is no universal "fix" for it, and with Bugthesda games they are downright inevitable.

    Awesome job on this guide!!!  This guide vastly improved my FPS and my gaming experience!  Thanks to everybody who had a hand in putting this together!  Much appreciated!  :-)

    I wouldn't recommend using Buffout 4, I had nothing but issues with it.  I got Error messages when starting the game telling me I was missing .dll files, and then I would get lag wile crafting.  Maybe I was doing something wrong, but I don't think it's worth the trouble.  Just my 2 cents.

      Yes actually, I have noticed this too. Which is ironic, a crash fix mod that induces more crashes and problems lol

    Well i am back again and i want to say a big thankyou to you. I went back today and read the entirety of this page and checked all tweaks you have listed here and made a few small edits here and there and it seems to have fixed my stuttering problem. Now i do expect a lot more but i do hope i can run around the Commonwealth without a hitch as i test out the changes and see if any hitches, stutters or lockups occur. But thanks again for this great guide.
