Long story short. This is my simple weather conditions mod
It changes all standard weather conditions to Gorgeous Foggy with variations:
Foggy; Misty; Mostly Foggy; Mostly Misty…Polluted-Foggy-kinda-Misty-Mostly-Sort-off-ish;
Please note: It will not change weather with special story-wise conditions and such OR any lighting values for sky/ night/ day and such
IT ONLY changes climate types percentage cycle
WHY creating this mod?! Cause “YES, WE CAN!” Also, cause foggy weather looks awesome in FO4
And for the most part I created it cause I wanna to check my thoughts on increasing in-game FPS. Let me explain:
You probably know that FO4 engine is old and it struggles on rendering shadows and objects which is a f-lot in this game
So, I was thinking WHAT if we change all weather conditions to “HeavyFog” and change lod/ shadow draw distance settings to almost minimum?
We will be maintaining high amount of FPS and without noticeable pop-ups in shadows and objects draw, right?
…because “HeavyFog” will block our view range anyways!
Thus I created this mod. In-game FOG looks awesome, horrific-mystic feel all the way and with high FPS amount with lower settings
at almost no visible (cause=FOG) image quality degradation
Tho I’m not considering to walk-through entire game with this mod
I almost certain that this foggy weather will eventually will be getting on my nerves after 50 hours or so of gameplay
BUT you can always try it. It’s FREE! =D
Now. For compatibility with other mods:
Should be compatible with ANY RESHADE/ ENB mods
This mod should be 100% compatible with totally awesome Fr4nsson’s Light Tweaks
Should be compatible with ANY pure “Lightning” mod which doesn’t alters weather cycles
My mod will not compatible with ANY mod which alters outdoors “Default Climate” percentage cycles
But why bother with other weather mods? I mean, IF you seek “FOG-all-the-time” – this mod has it. Just a FOG
Other weather mods just brings weather types altogether…Multiple-various weather – like default does it and like it should be
Also, post you favorite and popular mod name in comment section and i will eventually check it
I strongly NOT RECOMEND to use any “fog-remover” in outdoors areas
I mean, if you removing outdoors fog in the first place what use you’ll get from my mod, right?
Tho this mod works absolutely fine with indoors “fog-remover” – I’m using the proper FogOut mod for this purpose myself…
Now. For details on mod variations:
– FOGGY – 80% of the time it’s heavy Fog + 15% Rain with Fog + 5% RAD Storm –
– MISTY – 80% of the time it’s Misty Fog + 15% Rain with Fog + 5% RAD Storm –
– MOSTLY FOGGY – 70% of the time it’s heavy Fog + 15% Misty + 10% Rain with Fog + 5% RAD Storm –
– MOSTLY MISTY – 50% of the time it’s Misty + 35% Fog + 10% Rain with Fog + 5% RAD Storm –
– POLLUTED – 90% of the time it’s Polluted Fog + 10% RAD Storm –
More about POLLUTED:
It’s a “special condition” weather type. Not used in regular weather cycles. Foggy-Misty-Polluted with washed out colors
Very post apocalyptic and suicidal. See the screen-shots. OR even better – TRY IT!
Tho I’m not taking any responsibility for your suicidal thoughts after using this version long enough! Be advised, people!
FO4 Default in-game percentage for RAD storm – 4%; for rain conditions – 11%
On my screen-shots: Silent Hills mod + Fr4nsson’s Light Tweaks
– Copy .ESP file in to “Data” folder (“Fallout4.exe” location) –
– Open “plugins.txt” and after “Fallout4.esm” add my plugin name – “Silent Hills.esp” –
– Save the file. Put “read only” attributes on “plugins.txt” –
PS. New weather condition will hits after few hours of sleep.
Or just fast travel to somewhat further. After this it will be always as in my mod…till you delete it
