Life in the Commonwealth can be pretty scary sometimes. After all, when you’re being pursued by bloodthirsty raiders or have run out of bullets midway through a nest of feral ghouls, it’s definitely brown trousers time.

If that’s the case, then a new mod will make sure you don’t have to wait too long after selecting ‘new game’.

Aside from this, the mod should work with most alternate start mods, though this might take a bit of trial and error.
