Since consoles lack interface flexibility for exploring folders and files usually used for modding wizardry, the Fallout 4 mods are all done in game. For a video guide, check out this neat how-to tutorial by Eurogamer.
Modding and sharing of user-created mods have been one great advantage that PC gamers have over the console-inclined. But even with this kind-hearted effort by Bethesda of making mods available for Xbox One users, there are still limitations.
One ?big? limitation is the imposed 2GB limit. This applies to all the mods that you may have downloaded anytime. So, users need to make sure that all the Fallout 4 mods they are intending combine to make up less than 2GB.
Another aspect that one should keep in mind is that Bethesda will be doing both things at the same time: giving as much freedom but limiting it in some healthy way. What I?m saying is that Bethesda will be policing content for console modes especially nudity and copyrighted content. As pointed out by Dave Thier, this ?policing? could mess up the game–something that console users are not used to. This is just the first step for mods to enter consoles so we should expect some bumps on the road.
