Make Fallout 4 More Like Fallout: New Vegas With This Mod

New mod adds to the game’s leveling system.

Look, I’m sorry, I know it has its fans, but Fallout 4 is not a good game- it’s an average game, at best, and it’s rife with some baffling design decisions, products of a misguided emphasis on streamlining that take away any semblance of nuance or depth the game should have had, and replace it with brain dead systems in their wake. The game’s dialog system is the perfect example of this, as is the leveling system, which places emphasis on a shallow, perks driven progression tree.

The frustrating thing is, it doesn’t have to be this way- previous games in the series did this sort of thing just fine, and there was no reason for Fallout 4 to go off the, er, shallow end. Thankfully, mods exist- we already have several ones out there that work on fixing the game’s dialog wheel, and now, there’s one that basically tries to bring a sort of Fallout: New Vegas-esque sensibility to its leveling system as well.

The Traits and More mod from Cirosan (who incidentally also made the dialog wheel mod for the game) adds a number of traits to Fallout 4. “Essentially, Traits are something that add both a valuable advantage AND a great disadvantage to your character, making them even more unique,” he says, talking about the mod. “They’re unlike Perks, because Perks can only help your character and are always something good, whereas Traits contain something good AND something bad.

“Whether a Trait is worth the trade-off is up to your own judgement and playstyle, but experimenting with new Traits can reinvigorate an existing playthrough or add a lot of variety to a second playthrough.”

Since he can’t go around messing with Fallout 4’s upgrade tree, he’s made traits craftable items at chemistry workbenches throughout the Commonwealth. It’s a bit more contrived than it would be in New Vegas, but the end result is, you get a far more customized character than you would otherwise.

    Cool, thanks for your sharing your opinion about the game as if it was objective journalistic fact. The world is happy to know you think Fallout 4 was a babby game for casuals.

    I actually agree with your points but it doesn’t make it feel like an average game to me. Fallout 4 has been awesome so far. Traits were cool (and they should have it back) but I definitely have decided not to use traits in builds since Fallout 1 so what am I missing?

    But to say the leveling system is shallow? how so? the skill point system was not any better in fallout 3 and new vegas. I just pumped SPECIAL points to INT to max out the amount of skill points I get per level and just became awesome at everything even conversations that require skill point checks.

      It’s a good enough game but it’s not a very good fallout game is how I would describe my opinion of it.

      I have scored 128k dollars previous year working online and I am a full time student. I am attached with an online business entity that I heard about and I have earned such great cash. It is really user friendly and I feel myself lucky to have that option. Why not try this.

    Amazing how many people think Fallout 4 is subpar. In my opinion, it’s easily the best Fallout game ever, if not the best GAME ever. I’m at 150 hours and still have no desire to play another game.

    • Stuart Filson

      It’s because it wasn’t made by this guy’s beloved dev that makes him hate it. It received critical acclaim. Yeah, it’s a good game.

      When I saw the check of 6298 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really generating cash in his free time with his PC. . His aunt’s neighbor has done this for only 11 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .

      I think it’s sub-par because nothing we do really matters. We have no choice but to be the hero and everybody loves the PC after two sentences. There’s no sense of immediacy to work on the main story despite the apparent desperation the PC express at the beginning of the game.

      It makes no sense at all.

  • Hero for hire

    I’m just glad we finally have the mods to somewhat fix it.
    Everyone wins 🙂
