In this post, we’re going to take a look at some of the best Graphic Mods for Fallout 4 on the Xbox One in 2019. These are mods that change the game world, maybe by changing textures, meshes or effects. Luckily, the Xbox has quite a few options available.
You can see the Top 10 list below, where all of the buttons link back to Bethesda.net. The mods below aren’t in any particular order. If you want to check out some more Fallout 4 content we’ve covered, check here!
Green in the Commonwealth
This is one of my favorite mods, especially on PC. Instead of the Commonwealth looking brown and dead, plants will be flourishing everywhere making it look more alive and habitable. You have to question the realism of course, but it’s a great mod that changes the overall look of the game.
Better Graphics and Weather
Better Graphics and Weather gives some graphical improvements to Fallout 4, mainly by changing the weather and lighting systems. The developer hasn’t provided much information about the mod, except that it will conflict with other mods of the same type that you use.
Vivid Fallout – All in One
Vivid Fallout is a combination of mods that changes the textures of the landscape in Fallout 4. It changes things such as dirt, rocks, grass, trees and much more. This one though is a combination of all the Vivid mods. It’s one of the best graphics mod available, making a huge improvement to the appearance of the game.
Healthier Commonwealth is similar to Green in the Commonwealth above, in the sense that it adds new grass, bushes, flowers and trees to the game making it look more alive. You’ll have to evaluate both this mod and Green in the Commonwealth to decide which one you prefer.
Winter Overhaul makes the game world snowy, completely changing the appearance of forests and lakes. The developer states that this mod is still in development, with a heavier version coming soon. Some other mods are recommended to be installed, such as ones that give snowy weather.
Realistic Roads – Black Asphalt
This mod changes the roads in Fallout 4 to have black asphalt, giving them a more realistic appearance than the bland grey roads currently in the vanilla game. There is a chance that this mod may clash with the Vivid Fallout all in one mod, if it replaces the road textures.
WET – Water Enhancement Textures
WET completely overhauls water in Fallout 4, changing it’s appearance and animations. It gives new water surface textures, new splash and foam effects and adds new rain effects to the game. It’s a small change, but definitely noticeable.
Natural & Atmospheric Commonwealth
Natural & Atmospheric Commonwealth, also known as NAC is an all in one weather, lighting and visual mod. It changes a lot of things in Fallout 4 such as weather systems, lighting, NPC appearance, post processing, darker nights and much more. If you want a simple way to overhaul the game, this is possibly the mod for you.
Calamity Weathers is another weather mod. However this one aims to make the game feel more dark and gritty, instead of colorful. The developer says the aim of the mod is to replicate the atmosphere that you get from the Metro games.
CROSS Crit Gore-verhaul
Instead of changing the appearance of the game world, CROSS Crit Gore-verhaul changes how a lot of particles look in combat. The mod overrides the default Fire, Laser, AlienLaser, and Plasma critical effects. Instead of leaving behind an ash pile, characters will die from those elements.
