If you're looking for the original Parent Thread of the Survival Guide, here is the archived link: Fallout 4 Load Order FAQ and Assistance Thread. You'll find me as oddlittleturtle.

Mod Requests Policy

I have a list of things and ideas that I'm making for people to play with.

I make console-exclusive mods. I value your input. It helps me see what people want to play with, and how I can make my quests and adventures fun for you.  You can read more about my requests policy here:

Bug Reporting Policy

Send me links to your Load Order. You must provide links to mods you are using on your Load Order Framework sheet. I'm not here to judge what you're playing with I need to compare the mods you have against mine to make sure there's no overlap. If there's overlap, then it might not be a bug, it may be something I can fix with a compatibility patch.

Bugs are addressed once a month if I receive reports for the same issue from several different individuals.

You can also use the bug reporting form on Discord. Check the FO4 Bug Form channel. If you've found a bug in a port, let's discuss it on the load order channel. We need to compare everything in your load order first.

My mods will require starting new games if updated for bug fixes. I do not support updating or mod removal in the middle of a playthrough.

Load Order Assistance

If you need load order assistance, post your load order Framework link on Discord.
