Version system[edit]

BABY use a 4-digits version system.

  • 4th digit is updated each time one or several mods are updated.
  • 3rd digit will be increased each time one or several mods are added/removed.
  • 2nd digit will be increased when categories layout or major changes in design are made.
  • 1st digit will be increased for major changes.

Note that until modding is officially supported by Bethesda (most-likely when FO4's GECK will be out), and MO2 fully functional, BABY will stay in v0.X.X.X



  • Updated FO4Edit build version (kinda important since this build include several new decoded records)
  • Added HCSD to configure damages in survival mode
  • Added Unlimited Survival Action to re-enable proper savegame in survival mode.
  • Deprecated (but not removed) Survival Quick Save (kind of an unecessary burden with USA installed, but the hotkeyed quicksave can still be of use)
  • Changed the ENB part of Cinematic Excellence to optional, as some features are currently a bit glitchy on my own system
  • Re-added Fr4nsson's Light Tweaks to environment. This play nice with the ReShade-only installation of Cinematic Excellence

06/05/2016 BABY is finally in a shareable state, though largely incomplete.
