I am a console player and Fallout 4 is on sale on Steam. I have the digital deluxe bundle on Xbox One, so I already have the DLC assets. The only reason I'm considering buying it on sale is to make mods for my console game. I do not enjoy keyboard and mouse, I've tried many times over the last 15-20 years and I just can't get into it. Even using a controller and xpadder doesn't make it better for me.

So my question is, if I buy vanilla Fallout on Steam, can I make mods for my console with DLC, or do I also have to purchase the DLC on Steam for it to be 100% compatible? I plan on either using new, created assets, or vanilla.

You should be able to make mods that will work, but of course they won't be able to use the new assets. This could lead to some issues, depending on what mods you're making.

For example, you wouldn't be able to change anything in Far Harbor or Nuka-World, when those came out. Also, things like the Mechanist's lair and some of the other changes that occur within the Commonwealth itself might cause some issues if you're affecting similar locations. As near as I can tell, you'd be adding in a LOT more time to testing and troubleshooting, to make sure your changes don't get modified by or conflict with any mod changes.

My suggestion would be to get the mods if you can. I suspect that if you make much beyond a few basic mods, you'll end up saving more time by having the mods on both sides than the money is worth. But that's a call based on what's important to you, so make your own decision :)

you could get the main game (either from steam or another source) then buy the specific dlc you want to be able to work with..
i don't know from experience that would work, but i can't see why it wouldn't.

of course you can also get the season pass cheaper if you don't get it thru steam... it's $30 on other sites, instead of $60 on steam.

also if you know someone else that has the game you could ask them to "family share" the game with you on steam. you won't be able to play the game at the same time as the other person, but you can use it when they are not to work on your mods.

i'm not sure how it wouldn't play the same with the exact same controller connected to your PC tho.. i use an xbox 360 controller and it works great for me.
i tried being serious once, in 1989.. didn't particularly care for it.. so don't expect it to happen again.

You don't need xpadder. Just plug a regular old Rock Candy into your PC and Fallout 4 will be under the same exact control scheme as consoles without even having to mess with any options.

Thanks guys for all the help! Sadly I discovered my laptop isn't able to run it.

I actually do have a controller adapter that allows you to plug a dualshock 1/2 into it, but even using that I feel like I'm missing functionality by not having hotkeys and whatnot. It works really well, and I'm a bit attached to it since I've had it since the Windows 98 days lol.

Honestly it's okay that I can't run it, since eventually I'm going to build a PC that can. I really only wanted to make a few mods. The bad thing is I wanted to make one similar to ones on the nexus that aren't being ported over to console and a new one. Mainly I just wanted to be able to move the workbench at settlements and make a sound for when legendary enemies evolve using: https://youtu.be/9o19CaOSuD8

When IT reimaged it after my hard drive crashed, they put 32 bit windows 7 on it, which is definitely not what it had before. Other than that, everything seems like it would be right for it. It has an I7 and enough RAM/ video speed. It's supposed to be replaced soon, so here's hoping work goes overkill again.

OS being replaced soon I hope. If you're able to find the drivers for it there is no reason why you can't do it yourself.

Just out of curiosity, are file formats for the X-Box One in a format that allows copying them off of the disc or drive to a PC and using in the Creation Kit that way?
