Modder ‘Rikintosh’ has released a new mod for Fallout 4 that attempts to improve its graphics by reworking the LOD of distant models. As such, players can now see more houses, trees, advertisements, and vegetation in the distance. At the same time, this mod decreases the pop-in of distant objects.
Do note that this mod is for high-end PC systems, and comes in two versions. The first one, Ultimate GFX, features high-quality models, and 512 or 1024 textures with optimizations. The second version, INCEL Edition, comes with the highest quality models, and large textures with high-quality BC7 compression. This second version is for those that have enough amount of VRAM, so avoid it if you own a GPU with 4GB or 8GB of VRAM.
Unfortunately, the modder has not shared any before/after comparison video. However, you can find a screenshot comparison below. As you can clearly see, the modded version (left) looks noticeably better than the vanilla version (right).
You can download the mod from here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
