WTP Visuals

How the graphics were improved in WTP.

Visual Changes

Fallout 4 was never a particularly beautiful game, but it has solid graphics. Compared to older Fallout titles, it is a great deal more colourful and “cartoonish”, no green filter like in Fallout 3 and no distinct dusty hue like in Fallout New Vegas.

In my changes for WTP, I have decided to stay faithful to the vanilla colours and style, opting to focus largely on improving texture quality. Any more profound changes such as a tree overhaul would have susbstantially increased the list’s complexity due to FO4’s precombine system which is the only thing that keeps performance from turning into a slide show.

Weather & Lighting

Welcome to Paradise includes Lightweight Lighting - A Weather and Interior Lighting Overhaul which subtly improves lighting while retaining the original colour palette. Combined with the lightweight Spectrum ENB preset, it constitutes a solid upgrade over vanilla without changing the original style.

Landscape

In keeping with the pledge to stick with the vanilla style, I added Lush Landscapes (the “Dried” edition) as the grass overhaul which does a good job at improving vanilla’s sparse vegetation. Water was greatly improved by Water Enhancement Textures and Wave Animation Vanilla Enhanced.

Texture Packs

In Fallout 4, loose assets can actually have a significant impact on performance and load time over BA2 packed assets, far more so than in Skyrim SE. This is why most mod authors pack up their assets in archives and it is why I have been religiously packing up most loose assets in WTP. On this page I am listing the mods that the individual textures and meshes in the custom WTP texture packs are from.

Note that the assets were not repackaged and redistributed. Each of the individual mods will be downloaded for you from their original mod pages by Wabbajack, then packed up into archives to match my own setup.
