Realism mod for Fallout 4 fixes its most unbelievable part: your ability to survive the intro

As a stubborn and insufferable Fallout: New Vegas fan, I actually liked Fallout 4 more than I thought I would, but I still think it has its problems. Chief among them has got to be that intro, which sees the nukes drop at the exact moment the Sole Survivor and their family begin descending into the vault, narrowly avoiding doom. It’s totally unbelievable, but there’s a mod to fix it. More Realistic Intro for Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) gives the game a much more plausible start, incinerating the protagonist and their family well in advance of their entry to Vault 111, and ending the game about five minutes in. Sorted.

The mod comes from a creator called UnrealSeptim (opens in new tab), who describes the mod’s “two major gameplay effects” like so: “one, it makes the intro sequence much more believable. Two, it effectively prevents your character from progressing beyond the intro sequence, making the game essentially unplayable”. That second effect, says the creator, “makes the mod ideal for New Vegas fans”.
