Finalisation

Final steps.

Mod Organizer 2

All mods are installed in Mod Organizer 2 which is required to play the setup. You must always launch F4SE through MO2.

  • Navigate to your Welcome to Paradise installation directory.
  • Double-click ModOrganizer.exe.

I recommend adding ModOrganizer.exe to your taskbar or creating a shortcut on your Desktop for easy access.

LUTs

An easy way to customise the overall tone of the game is by changing the color palettes - through LUTs. I have included three different options of which you can choose one or none. Take a look at the mod pages and their preview pictures.

You can change or disable LUTs at any time.

Controller Fix

The resolution of the Pip-Boy interface was increased in the fallout4prefs.ini file. Unfortunately this will cause the map cursor to lock in the upper left corner when playing with a controller.

If you play with a controller, follow these instructions to revert the INI tweak:

  • Click the puzzle icon in MO2 and select INI Editor.

Open INI Editor

  • Switch to the fallout4prefs.ini tab and scroll down to the [Display] section.
  • Revert the following lines to the values shown below:
uPipboyTargetHeight=700
uPipboyTargetWidth=876
  • Close the window and click Yes to save your changes.

Frame Rate and VSYNC

One of the Creation Engine’s drawbacks is the physics engine which is tied to the frame rate. Simply put, the game breaks if it runs at more than 60FPS. However, there is a mod that allows you to unlock the frame rate by dynamically adjusting havok settings at runtime, aptly called High FPS Physics Fix.

  • FPS or frames per second are how the amount of still images shown every second are measured. The higher your FPS, the more fluid the game appears. The amount of frames per second that can be rendered depends on your hardware, primarily your CPU and GPU. In my opinion, a stable 60FPS is perfect for most games, including Fallout 4. Most systems should be able to achieve a consistent 60FPS in WTP.
  • VSYNC is a technique that syncs a game’s framerate to your monitor’s refresh rate (hence the name). Enabling VSYNC prevents screentearing at the cost of latency and is always recommended. However, if your monitor supports G-Sync or FreeSync, you do not need to enable VSYNC by other means. G-Sync and FreeSync are advanced VSYNC methods applied globally to all fullscreen applications.

By default, WTP is capped to 60 FPS. VSYNC is disabled.

Enable VSYNC

Unless your monitor supports G-SYNC or FreeSync, I recommend enabling VSYNC in High FPS Physics Fix. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Double-click High FPS Physics Fix in your mod order (left pane in Mod Organizer 2).
  • Switch to the INI Files tab and select the HighFPSPhysicsFix.ini file.
  • In Line 14, set EnableVSync= to true.
  • Press CTRL + S to save and close the window.

Enable VSYNC

FPS Cap

If you are unhappy with the default cap at 60FPS, you can change it. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Double-click High FPS Physics Fix in your mod order (left pane in Mod Organizer 2).
  • Switch to the INI Files tab and select the HighFPSPhysicsFix.ini file.
  • In Line 55, change the value for InGameFPS= to your desired FPS cap. Set to 0 to uncap the frame rate.
  • Press CTRL + S to save and close the window.
