I have recently found myself with an abundance of free time. The first question you might have is why the blog is so dead when I have so much time. Why am I not writing more and entertaining all of you loyal readers? The reason is actually quite simple: The Fallout 4 Creation Kit.
It is true. I have been dipping my toes into the pool of Fallout 4 modding.
My first foray can be found posted on Nexus Mods. It is the Beefed Up Gunners Project. It is a very simple mod (ported to XB1 and PS4) that makes the Gunners into a larger threat for the player.
This is not a mod that simply drops more
raiders, err Gunners at each location. Oh no, I have instead chosen to follow the lore given for this militaristic faction and beefed them up with a combination of extra enemies and tactical defenses.
It never made sense to me that the Gunners operated as better dressed raiders. They are supposed to be tactically equivalent to the Brotherhood of Steel while technologically inferior. What this means in simple terms is that the Gunners know how to setup a defensive perimeter with proper cover and overlapping fields of fire. It does not mean that every member is encased in T-60 power armor or carries a gatling laser.
Keep in mind that this is my first attempt at modding and I am still learning a lot about the Creation Kit. The first thing I learned is that it likes to crash! It crashes a lot, typically right before you save your changes.
You can post comments here or over on the Nexus Mods page. Don't forget it is also available for consoles!
