How to use Seasons:
Choose a season from the downloads page. Choose only ONE season at a time, you can manually switch seasons via your mod manager at any time.
It is quick and easy for you to do this!

Make sure that you check for updates under the updates section as I frequently post bug fixes there.

I include both BA2 and loose file options. BA2 files have much better performance, but loose files will always override BA2 files so if you have other texture mods and they aren't BA2 files and you want Seasons to override them then you NEED loose file versions. Loose file versions are in the main download area and the BA2 files are under Miscellaneous.

COMBINED OBJECTS: If you disable combined objects in your .ini file, please just use the console to delete any unwanted trees, it's the best
way.
select the tree in the console, enter:
disable

if the tree disappears it's safe to then enter:
markfordelete

if something ELSE disappears or you can't tell what disappeared, enter:
enable

so you don't accidentally disable something you shouldn't.
I do NOT support problems caused by disabling combined objects and I design Seasons around not using that edit as it causes massive fps loss for me especially in Boston.

If you have any questions, bugs, etc. please make a comment. I am too busy making textures to be able to be able to play more often than not, so feedback is vital.

FALLOUT 4 SEASONS ADD-ONS & UPDATES: 
The full ownership of the Seasons Project mods has now been transferred
to the most excellent modder frogprincessQ4 for future updates & add-ons to the mod.
GameDuchess will remain available for now to help with assistance and support as she can,
but please consider Froggie the Seasons Project mod author from this point forward.


NO, THE SEASONS DO NOT CHANGE AUTOMATICALLY. PLEASE ONLY INSTALL ONE SEASON AT A TIME.



Thank you so much to Hodilton for this (extremely out of date) feature video of Seasons paired with Subtle ENB!

SparrowPrince has kindly and spectacularly created and allowed me to add a Snowy LOD for use with Winter.
It is now included in Winter.

**Winter LODs can be safely used alongside SparrowPrince's FAR - Faraway Area Reform (LOD) 
It does replace the diffuse maps, but the bump maps will still work. If you use FAR overwrite the noise file with the Season's one.**



These Seasons packages also look cool with the addition of More Grass Low by Meltus. Recommended More Grass Low is in Optional Files section. You can add Snow to your Winter season over at Vivid Weathers
.

This Mod may drop your FPS
: Textures range from vanilla to 4k (there are some vanilla 4K textures by the way!).

AVAILABLE SEASONS:

FALL SEASON - Bright autumn foliage and plants. Harvest time looks for appropriate crops.
WINTER SEASON - It's snow everywhere folks! Most everything is dead or dried out or slumbering. (Try Nuclear Weather - SNOW as an add-on!)
SPRING SEASON - Quite colorful! Green time for crops, and bright blooming flowers and plants! Green and Lush.
SUMMER SEASON - Less bright greens, few flowers, harvest time looks for appropriate crops. Hot and Dry.

MOD CREDITS (All assets from the below mod resources are already included and used with full permission of the original authors.)

[b]Most textures are now by frogprincessQ4, but originally the textures for the Seasons Project were painstakingly hand selected, switched around, mixed & matched, optimized, recolored, or otherwise tweaked to suit the Season they are in, by GameDuchess. The result is a complete overhaul for each season.

I asked for and received direct permission from all the mod authors who - I believe - may have had some of their files incorporated into DR. If I have missed something, I hope that I will be informed so that I can correct any error. Most DR assets replaced in 3.0 versions.)

VIDEOS:
Please see the videos tab for more videos, they have been removed from here for the sake of people with slow/er internet connections. With most humble apologies to the video creators. All videos for Seasons are very out of date, if any video author is interested in making a feature of the latest versions of Seasons with no adult content in it, I would be very happy.


HIGHLY RECOMMEND additional mods for the ultimate landscape & gaming experience. (Screenshots do not show these mods, BTW.)
(Install BEFORE FO4 Seasons mod in the order below order & overwrite when asked.)

Vivid Fallout - (Seasons will overwrite many files, but they are a great base!)
True Storms
Vivid Weathers
Nuclear Weather - For REAL snow effects and lots of other cool weathers! - http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/9063/
Radiant Clouds & Fog - http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/735/?
(Then your chosen Seasons Project file.)

ALSO RECOMMENDED

MaRoc ENB - If you want grit & realism, this is the ENB for you. May be a bit performance heavy.
Subtle ENB - Optimized for gameplay and performance on Vanilla color palette, top video.
OR RenVision ENB - Several different varieties, video above.
OR Wasteland Grit Reshade - Very post-apocalyptic, muted, noir cinema style reshade.
OR Grim Wolf Reshade & ENB BOS Edition - High end, detailed, realism look.

COMPATIBILITY

This mod just replaces/adds textures and some few meshes. Should be compatible with just about everything, but may overwrite some textures for Seasons effects. Compatible with True Storms and Vivid Weather. Add on Nuclear Weather (link above) for snowstorms, and more additional weathers too.

INSTALLATION


BACK UP YOUR DAMN DATA FOLDER AND SAVE GAMES BEFORE YOU INSTALL ANY NEW MOD! Just saying. :-)

Nexus Mod Manager - Download using the NMM button and then install, or download using the manual link (RECOMMENDED) and copy folder into your NMM mod manager and install. Big files sometimes corrupt or break when using the NMM button to download.

Manual Installation - I REALLY recommend using NMM to install. If not, however, download using the manual link, then BACKUP YOUR DATA FILE FIRST, unzip the .rar file and drag the contents into your data folder and overwrite when asked.

Any Other Mod Manager - I don't use them and know nothing about them, so proceed at your own risk.

UNINSTALL

Nexus Mod Manager - Just uninstall using the NMM function. * There have been a few reports of not all textures uninstalling when uninstalling a Seasons package. This is NOT specific to this mod. I have experienced this bug with Nexus Mod Manager when installing and uninstalling other texture mods, such as Grafix and Vivid Landscapes. 

Uninstalling manually is a lot more complicated now than it was when Seasons started out. You will need to check the contents of the relevant download to see which files need removing, as files are no longer restricted to two main folders.

Manual Uninstall - I really recommend using NMM, but if not, you'll be needing that backup Data folder you made, you crazy person.

Any Other Mod Manager - I don't use them and know nothing about them, so proceed at your own risk.
