Winter is Coming to Fallout 4; Also Spring, Summer, Fall

A player called GameDuchess has released a mod introducing seasons to the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 4, as well as new foliage and weather effects.

The mod, as GameDuchess explains, appropriates and combines work from other modders in order to create the effects. The textures in GameDuchess’ seasons mod range “from vanilla to 4k,” so they warn that players may experience performance hits and frame rate drops during gameplay, though GameDuchess says the latest version of the mod has ironed out most performance issues. “Further optimization will not be done for now,” GameDuchess explains, “as I believe the files are as balanced as they can be between performance and quality at this time.”

The notes describing the available seasons are as follows:

FALL SEASON – Bright autumn foliage and plants. Harvest time looks for appropriate crops.
* Optional Alternate Fall Tree Textures – Some trees are fuller and fluffier, less sparse, but more blocky.
WINTER SEASON – It’s snow everywhere folks! And “snowing” too if you like. Most everything is dead or dried out or slumbering.
SPRING SEASON – Quite colorful! Green time for crops, and bright blooming flowers and plants!
SUMMER SEASON – Less bright greens, few flowers, harvest time looks for appropriate crops.
* Optional Alternate Spring or Summer Tree Textures – Some trees are fuller and fluffier, less sparse, but more blocky.
* Optional Alternate Tree Meshes For All Seasons – Added trees in some places. Please see file description.
