FO4 Load order and enhanced performance
FO4 LOAD ORDER & ENHANCED PERFORMANCE
I am creating this page as a knowledge base. Referring to Load order for mods in NMM.
Also fully tested performance improvement mods for FO4
At the moment LOOT apparently is not reordering all the plugins correctly. People are reporting mixed results. Master files are apparently being loaded in the correct order. SO loot can be used for that.
Below is a Load order guide written by the creator of Armoursmith extended. People have reported good results using his method.
Just recently i have seemed to reach a wall of what my PC can and cant handle. Micro stutter happening occasionally, Using ENB, graphics set to pretty much ultra and running 198 mods.
This is when fine tuning of what mods we use and their load orders becomes important!
So many of us have been modding for a long time and may have knowledge that can help others get FO4 running smooth. Post your load orders!
If you think you have the load order perfect with 40000 mods installed, show us!
Or if your just unsure of your load order and you would like some intelligent advice/input
