Hello: This collaboration was built too push your game as hard as it can, while also keeping compatibility as the main priority and using the least amount of cheat mods as possible. I wanted too create a different kind of experience, so I used a lot of Black, Chrome,LED, and Glow mods. I do not yet create mods, but have a very good understanding of how the Nexus Mod Manager works, and I have created a very large list of compatible mods and the order in which too install them. I've provided all the little details, just make sure you follow along step by step, pick the correct versions, overwrite when necessary, etc.
If you encounter any issues please let me know. If you know of any mods that you feel would be compatible, and would improve this list, please leave feedback in the comments section.
Advice: I would highly recommend that you go through this list and download the mods you are going too use BEFORE starting too install anything. This could turn 4 hours of work into 1 or less. If you do not wish to use ENB, just start from Step 3.
I would also recommend that you use a fresh install of Fallout 4 to prevent fragments of any mods you have previously used from clashing with the mods on this list. When uninstalling mods, remember too disable them first, then right click the mod and uninstall.
Important: You do not need too use ENB or a Shader. If you choose too use a Shader though, you need too install ENB. I wouldn't recommend attempting too use one without the other.
Step 1: Install ENB. This is very easy too do, just follow the quick tutorial in this Video.
Step 2: Install Shader. This is also very easy too do. Just follow the tutorial found at the bottom of the Mod Description Tab. My personal preference is:
Cinematic Excellence Reshade Presets | By: Archalyus | Natural Version
Step 3: Install Environment, Sky, and Clean Up textures.
Important: Always select the Download (MANUAL) button and then select the Download (NMM) button of the specific file you want. Most of them will have one main file, some are slightly more specific. I have included easy too follow directions for the more specific ones.
Feel free too skip any mods that are Manual Install only, but if you wish too install them the installation instructions can usually be located somewhere on the Mod Description Tab.

Check This Out:
Although I am not yet creating mods, I create music in my free-time. Check out my youtube if you would like for over 100 live music videos as well. I always appreciate a good listener. youtube.com/devlishrising.
Also currently looking for a modder that may want too turn a couple of my well-recorded tracks into radio tracks for the Pip-Boy. They are better than anything on my youtube I assure you.
I also have some requests for mods that I think would be good ideas and haven't yet been made that would make my build particularly better. I CHALLENGE YOU!
Black Hole Sun - A mod that replaces the sun with a black hole but doesn't mess the game up to much.
Legendary Gas Masks and Accessories - Would be nice to have anything equipable to be legendary.
Legendary Explosives - Would be nice to find legendary explosives of all kinds every now and then.
