The purpose of this guide is to help you find settlement building goodies you may not know already existed. This covers retextures, themes (like prewar, postwar and Institute building), structural elements, decorative elements (clutter!) and whatever else I think is important enough to add. This guide will not offer full compatibility information but I'll add tips when I know it. I've NOT checked and tested every mod on here so check them yourself.

Mod authors, feel free to Discord PM Damanding (damanding#6282) to get your mods included but note that I'm not going to add everything, particularly if your mod adds very little or I think another mod does it better. If I added every single mod out there it would take too long, so I'm just going for the best.  Also emphasizing less popular themes such as pre-war or Institute. Sorry, this guide is definitely going to be biased.

Using This Guide:

  • Click on the mod author's name for complete list of their work for Fallout 4.
  • Check multiple sections to find mods: rather than duplicate listing mods in every relevant section I pick the Themes or Everything section over other sections such as Structural or Decor/Furniture if applicable.

General rules of thumb for inclusion:

  • Structural building kits
  • Clutter objects/décor
  • Furniture
  • Re-textures that affect the above
  • A few useful tools

Not being included:

  • Mods I consider too buggy or lacking support (if needed)
  • Wall décor such as flags, posters, artwork. There's just too many and I don't feel like polilcing adult vs non-adult content. There are a couple of exceptions listed however.
  • Mods that only add/change one or two items only
  • Insufficient popularity (unless the items are highly unique).
