Do mods make or break this game?

9 posts in this topic

I've seen some really interesting mods on PC that greatly improve the experience. Larger battles, more NPCs, better looking faces and foliage, etc.

I don't want to buy and spend time platinuming this game if I'm going to regret not experiencing this game with mods.

Mods disable every single trophy in this and Fallout 4 so there's zero point installing any of them, until you have the Platinum and the 100%. Also note that Sony imposed a file size cap of 1.5gb for the mods on the PS4, which means all we get are weapons, skins and the occasional mini questline of very little importance so you can forget about getting any of the game fixing mods that are on the PC and Xbox 1. Also note that a lot of the mods are premium items that can only be bought via the scummy and ultra over-priced in-game Creation Club store with premium currency but there are some freebies made by fans of the games.

 

I don't know if they ever fixed it but at one point there was a game breaking bug with the Creation Club store, whereby you would be unable to install or use any of the mods you had bought.

Mods made by actual dev teams cost money. Fan made mods are free.

 

The mods are pretty useless for the most part thanks to all the limitations Sony put on them. Plus, disabling trophies really kills them IMO. The game is great without them anyways.

Thank you for the clarification :). I tuned out of the mod situation, just after they were introduced so am a little behind the times with certain aspects of them.

I'm assuming you bought the console version because you want trophies. If you want mods, you're really better off with the PC version.

 

That said, the vanilla game is good enough that I don't think you'll regret going for the platinum. You can always enable mods later if you change your mind.

I'll never play Skyrim again on PS4 without having the USSEP mod installed. But yes, PC mods are better than PS4 mods because only on PC do you get the opportunity to listen to some nasally-voiced college kid try his hand at amateur voice acting.

I want to enjoy the game to the fullest, so I think I'll forgo getting any trophies. I'll just play it on PC.

Mods are pretty alright, IMO. A long time since I played the game last, and replaying now with some graphics mods, a mod adding more patrols, one for adding more gold to shops for simplicity's sake, USSEP etc. makes the replay great and more immersive.

 

Sucks with the limitations, as I'm sure there are a plethora of great and funny mods on Xbox, but hey - better than nothing.
