When they’re not chatting to random NPCs, decorating their settlements or laughing at a joke told by a robotic clown, Fallout 4’s Sole Survivor can often be found fending off the many dangers of The Commonwealth.
Whether it’s terrifying mutated creatures skulking around irradiated areas, fearsome raider bosses looking for their next victim or imposing Brotherhood of Steel gunships patrolling the skies, the sheer range of enemies inhabiting the wasteland makes just staying alive a minor miracle.
If you’re a vault dweller who regularly finds themselves feeling a bit disgusted as they blast and zap their way through the lairs of super mutants and raiders, a new mod, which aims to shield you from gore, might be worth adding to your arsenal.
Feel like Fallout 4’s wasteland could do with being a bit tidier?
The mod in question is fittingly titled ‘Super Mutant and Raider Gore Remover’ and is the work of modder Aurelianis. Some of their previous projects have helped make quickly erecting a cosy settlement easier and tweaked the faces of Diamond City’s populace.
This time, they’ve decided to take on a request to clean up the grim decor that graces the walls, floors and sometimes even ceilings of dungeons populated by violent raiders or bloodthirsty super mutants.
Gone are the puddles of blood, hanging bags of body parts and random corpses strewn about these places as though the denizens have just raided a serial killer-themed section of IKEA and are desperate to show off their bold accoutrements.
Sadly, the totems and gore-filled shopping carts beloved by some super mutants in the same way your mother loves the ‘live, laugh, love’ sign in her kitchen have had to stay, with Aurelianis explaining: “They use the same textures as neck gore, (so disabling them) resulted in ‘hollow’ bodies if decapitations (occurred).”
A similar issue meant some raiders got to keep their decapitated bodies, which use some of the same skin and clothing textures as living NPCs, who still very much need them.
Despite these minor issues, the mod already has some rave reviews, with user Alphonze17 declaring in the comments: “This is great. Now my dommy mommy super mutants won't be living in filth.”
