Despite Fallout 4's official mod tools not even being available yet, another incredible mod for the open-world role-playing game has emerged. The Fallout 4 Seasons Mod (via Eurogamer) expands on the game's day/night cycle by letting you play the RPG throughout all four seasons: spring, summer, winter, and fall.

YouTuber hodilton installed the mod and published a video this week showing it off. It looks incredible. Check it out below.

The creator of the mod, Nexusmods user GameDuchess, explains that installing the mod may lead to a drop in frame rate. This is as good as it's going to get for now, though, as GameDuchess says they are not going to further optimize the mod because the files are as balanced between performance and quality as possible.

GameDuchess leveraged a number of outside mods for this, and they plan to update it again when Bethesda releases the Creation Kit later this year. Right now, it's recommended that you only use one season at a time, but once Fallout 4's official mod tools are released, GameDuchess may return to work to build another, optional mod that will allow the game to switch between the seasons automatically.

Here is an official description of the four seasons:

  • FALL SEASON - Bright autumn foliage and plants. Harvest time looks for appropriate crops.
  • WINTER SEASON - It's snow everywhere folks! And "snowing" too if you like. Most everything is dead or dried out or slumbering.
  • SPRING SEASON - Quite colorful! Green time for crops, and bright blooming flowers and plants!
  • SUMMER SEASON - Less bright greens, few flowers, harvest time looks for appropriate crops.
