An incredible new mod for Fallout 4 has been released, revolutionizing the game’s NPC artificial intelligence.
The REAL.AI mod, created by the talented modder ‘Thumblesteen’, is designed to enhance the NPC AI in the PC version of Fallout 4. By recalibrating numerous engine-level subroutines within Bethesda’s Creation Engine, this mod removes the limitations placed on NPC behavior by the developers. For a detailed explanation of the mod’s features and functionality, ‘Thumblesteen’ has even written a comprehensive article, which can be found here. Essentially, this AI mod eliminates the “blinders” that Bethesda had imposed on NPCs. As ‘Thumblesteen’ explains, “Bethesda gave NPCs a series of invisible barriers that blocked their senses, meaning that they were essentially existing in a kind of bubble”. This mod liberates NPCs from that bubble, enabling them to interact with their surroundings and engage with the world. Consequently, snipers will perform actual sniping, NPCs will flank the player effectively, and the denizens of Fallout 4 will behave more authentically, treating buildings, firing positions, and environmental elements as if they were real living beings.
According to the modder, hard limitations have been replaced with softer ones to prevent the NPCs from experiencing psychic issues, with many of them having weaker senses.
With this mod installed, NPC behavior becomes significantly more unpredictable, as they are granted greater freedom and the ability to make their own choices. For example, NPCs can now maneuver around large objects, take cover, set up ambushes, and even attempt to deceive the player. Additionally, they can blindly fire and engage targets based on limited information and assumptions.
Below, you can find a brief gameplay video showcasing this AI mod in action:
This is an ambitious project, and we are confident that Fallout fans will be eager to try out this mod.
