nstead of messing with your Fallout4.ini when testing new settings now you can do it on a separate file.
Some people call it SoftPatch
This mod contains only an empty Master file and a empty INI, the only thing you need to do is edit the INI with your desired configurations. There are plenty already available here on the NEXUS.
This way you can keep the original Fallout4.ini intact. The settings you use will take priority over the Fallout4.ini .
In the the future with better mods and scripting we might be able to go even further.
If you want to see an example how this is applied check my mod Zoom where I am using it to change camera settings.
This is also a Modders Resource for those using INI settings.
Unzip and drop both files, IniPatch.esm and IniPatch.ini in your Data Folder.
You should do this manually has the managers available might not handle the ini file yet. I still need to confirm it.
For more info how to install plugins visit my tutorial page.
The main reason for this is to avoid messing your inis and to have a better control on mod conflict, as more and more mods are coming out with INI changes, you’ll end up with conflicts, everybody says copy this, copy that, paste it in your Fallout4.ini. I had this happening with some of my mods and I don’t have the all day to just answer questions on how to solve the problem of someone who download another mod that was conflicting with mine.Some people end up having to delete the Original INI because they don’t know what is causing issues anymore. After they become frustrated because they lost some nice feature that was working previously.Not everybody is an expert on these settings and having a way for more control is just a bonus.About the Fallout4Custom.Ini I haven’t had the time to test it to be able to say it can be an alternative solution.
