There were jokes about how long it would take for the nude mods to surface for Fallout 4 and I erroneously expressed that it would take a whole week. Boy was I wrong. It took just 24 hours for the nude mods to start rolling out, and they’re only available for PC gamers.
A collection of nude mods have already surfaced from several different modders across various spaces. The most basic nude mod is one that gives the main player character for skin s05 a nude overhaul from the appropriately named user Succubus. The mod is pretty small and only clocks in at 13MB. You can download it right now from over on Nexusmods.com.
Succubus also has a secondary nude mod available that you can also download for the females on Nexusmods.com. You will need to register at Nexus Mods to see and download material deemed sensitive for users under the age of 18.
Being a bit more ambitious with their nude mod is modder A High Hobbit. You might remember him as the first modder to make a successful nude mod for Mortal Kombat X. Well, he took some time off the university studies to put some nudity back in the post-nuclear wasteland of Fallout 4. He mentions over on his Deviant Art page…
“This is also a texture mod so the body shape is unchanged and I don’t know how to change that.
“As I haven’t posted as much as I would like due to university I said fuck the assignment I have tomorrow and decided to spend the entire day creating a nude mod for Fallout 4. Wanted to be one of the first nude mods (not sure if any have been done yet). However this is an alpha mod so for one it is a little more annoying to install (or I think anyway as took me a long time to figure how to export the textures with no proper tool currently available).”
You can check out the uncensored versions of the screenshots above via the Flickr album.
Now installing the mod is a little bit tricky given that official tools have not been provided yet by Bethesda Software. As mentioned, these are alpha mods so you will have to manually install them by editing the Fallout4.ini and switching the directories to point to the data folder found in the package file for the nude mod provided by A High Hobbit.
You can download the mod directly from his Deviant Art page.
Opposite of Konami, NetherRealm Studios and Rockstar, Bethesda didn’t hard lock their game with a bunch of hard-to-decrypt files. It took modders months to finally crack Mortal Kombat X, and it took a lot of dedicated work and endless nights to finally break Metal Gear Solid V. However, if you want to mod Fallout 4 without official tools — as evidenced with the nude mods above — you can do so with a little bit of know-how and a lot of dedication to the craft.
These are texture mods, by the way, so the meshes are not modified. Expect the mesh mods to appear as soon as modelers start to alter the model types in the game.
Fallout 4 is available right now for PC, Xbox One and PS4. The home consoles will get mod support in 2016, but don’t expect any of these risque nude mods to appear in the modding list. I have a strong feeling that Microsoft and Sony will have some strict curation filters in place.
