Using a graphics mod in a Fallout game isn’t exactly the cutting edge of new ideas. Since Bethesda started coming out with massive worlds in their Fallout series, some of the graphics just seemed so flat. Maybe Bethesda knows an army of graphics modders are ready to swarm the game to improve the visual experience of a game meant to take place in a wasteland.
However, we’re not here to talk about improving the visual experience of Fallout 4 with graphics mods, we’re here to go into graphics mods you didn’t know you needed. Whether or not these mods count to you as improving the visual experience is up to you.
Atom Bomb Babies
Why bring more children into a post-apocalyptic world to suffer the terrible decisions their parents made? The world isn’t ready for more babies yet, but what is there to do with the ones being born into this madness?
Use them as mini-nukes.
Fortunately, a modder by the name of Trainwiz created a Fallout 4 graphics mod we didn’t know we needed: using the children we don’t need right now as mini-nukes for the fat man weapon. What a great way to control the population.
Cadbury Crème Eggs
When Countmosh created this Fallout 4 graphics mod, they must have been influenced by their sweet tooth. The mod simply replaces the mirelurk egg visual with delicious chocolatey wrapping.
Unfortunately, the inside is still an egg. No matter how many times you crack one of these open you’ll still only get what should have been a mirelurk that could have graced this post-apocalyptic world. If anything, this is great advertising because it’s making me crave some Cadbury Crème eggs now.
Catholic Schoolgirl Uniforms
This Fallout 4 graphics mod you didn’t know you needed is really just a schoolgirl uniform, but not just any schoolgirl uniform, a Catholic schoolgirl uniform.
Imagine walking around the wasteland dressed like someone’s weird fantasy while beating raiders to death. Set the scene of an epic battle with a deathclaw as its razor-sharp claws tears away at your skirt while you’re trying to run and gun it down. Absolutely no one asked for this graphics mod in Fallout 4, yet, here we are.
While everyone else is overloading their graphics card with mods that give lush vegetation to a world destroyed by nuclear fallout, you can sit there happy with your atom bomb babies, Cadbury mirelurk eggs, and Catholic schoolgirl uniforms. None of these are ideas we ever thought about, but once the creative geniuses of the modding community came together, they developed something we want for some reason.
Unfortunately, a mod does exist that turns deathclaws into Thomas the Tank Engine, but that mod seems to have disappeared off the official modding website. This is unfortunate because there’s nothing we didn’t know we wanted more than being chased down by a murderous children’s cartoon train.
