When they’re not decorating their settlements, trying on quirky sunglasses or laughing at a joke told by a robotic clown, Fallout 4’s Sole Survivor can often be found tinkering with their prized power armour.

This isn’t too surprising, after all, when you’re constantly blasting, zapping or bashing your way through mutated creatures, bloodthirsty raiders or imposing Brotherhood of Steel gunships in order to complete quests, having extra protection pays dividends.

If your vault dweller subscribes to this theory but is struggling to manage their massive assortment of fusion-powered armours, a new mod might be worth adding to your load order.

Struggling to manage all of your heavily-upgraded and garishly-painted power armour suits in Fallout 4?

The mod in question is called ‘Power Armor Collections 76 style’ and is the work of modder BigAndFlabby. Some of their previous works have enabled the Sole Survivor to summon vertibirds in DLC areas and capture the rust devils from Automatron.

This time, they’ve decided to try and reproduce the power armour collection system used by Fallout 76, allowing you to swap between and transport different suits more easily by storing their re-nameable chassis in your inventory via a ‘collect’ command, as you can see in the showcase video below.

While a couple of established mods, most notably HcGxGrill’s ‘Power Armor Collection System - Allows you to store Power Armor in your inventory’ attempt to allow you to do something similar, BigAndFlabby’s work seemingly differentiates itself by letting you store a “virtually unlimited number” of chassis at once and giving them an automatic recall function that can be averted by staying close and interacting with the suit in question.

This timer, which only applies to suits that you equip from your inventory rather than drop, with the latter of those options being what you’ll need to do if you want the suit to be permanently placed, is ideal if you’re out adventuring and don’t want to worry about accidentally leaving your gear behind or having to come back and return it to base if you discover another suit you want to claim.

Sadly for those with sticky fingers, you won’t be able to collect any suits that would count as stolen property, so don’t even think about trying to beef up your collection by pilfering some spares from the Brotherhood of Steel.

Regardless of whether you’re now casually carrying around enough power armour to outfit an entire Enclave assault squad, make sure to follow us for more updates on interesting mods like this one for Skyrim and Cyberpunk 2077. You can also check out our mods of the month for March 2023.
