Immersion

updated 2020

Immersion is one of those little things that makes the world feel like it's not just an empty husk.  I mean, it's still pretty empty but this guide will alleviate the boredom... or pain. These mods can range from big content packs, to smaller tweaks. Please note that most mods with the word "Immersive" in the title are most likely created by a dumbass who's just trying to advertise his mod to other dumbasses.
 
In this section, we will discuss:
-Alternate Starts
-Audio and Music
-Immersive Overhauls
-Backpacks and Gear
-Roleplaying Elements
-Nature and Weather
-Miscellaneous Immersion mods
Still a Work in Progress

Alternate Starts

Dont you hate it when you want to make a new character but you have to go all the way through Vault 111? Well with this mod, you can totally forget about Shawn and go out into the Wasteland with no care but your own sense of adventure!

Alternate Start and Dialogue Overhaul

Provides Alternate start, Quick start, Normal start options. When you use one of the alternate start paths, there are over 800 dialogue edits, with voice and lip sync, so your character is no longer the mother/father of Shaun (or even a Vault Dweller, if you want). Great for role players.

Atmosphere

You might not think that audio plays a big role in immersion, but it actually does. Walking through the wasteland with the sounds of nature or eerie music makes you feel right at home in a game like this. Also because listening to the song, Under an Ancient Sun, can get tiresome and repetitive for some people. A good change of music can make a big difference in how you want your game to feel like!
 

Overhauls

To make a mod good, sometimes you have to rework a certain aspect of the game. Adding new features while still keeping the game stable and fit with the rest of the original work. Here are a few overhaul mods that add brand new features to the game that will change your experience of Fallout 4 as you know it now.
However, only use these mods on light loads as they are script heavy and impact your game.

Backpacks and Gear

Any immersion nut knows that to make an immersive character, you have to wear a bunch of random shit on yourself! Backpacks, capes, potions, books, hoods, torches, etc. are all viable options to make your character look like a person who actually lives of the wastelands. However, this list is mostly just backpacks because I fucking love backpacks.
 

Nature and Weather

It's the small things that you admire in a vast game like this. Usually when you want to get immersed into something, you take it slowly and observe all the hidden elements it has to offer. Mods are no different.
Natural and Atmospheric Commonwealth

Transforms the Fog consuming Far Harbor into the bonafide radioactive threat that everyone claims it to be, instead of a minor nuisance. Be sure to pack some extra Rad-X and RadAway!

 

Radio

OLD WORLD RADIO - BOSTON
The Radio feature in Fallout 4 has been a feature in the Fallout Franchise since Fallout 3. However one thing that many of the fans complained about was the lack of options and genres of music being represented in the game and its lack of atmosphere. This mod adds over a dozen radio station with multitudes of themes that are not usually seen in the Fallout Universe. All stations use resources that are in the public domain so the chances of the mod being taken down is close to none.
More Where That Came From
This mod adds over 100 tracks to Diamond City Radio, and acts as an addition to the station rather than a Standalone mod. This features countless hours on content in addition to that you also gain the ability to enjoy more music from the Cold War, such as West of the Wall, and We’ll Meet Again. Thankfully the mod author does update the mod periodically for bug fixes and what not.
