Fallout 4’s greatly improved and streamlined loot system is now available in Fallout: New Vegas thanks to one efficiency-loving modder.
Fallout 4 pared back many classic Fallout mechanics—many to an excessive degree, some say. With that said, from diehard role-players to FPS freaks, players agree that Fallout 4’s loot system is head and shoulders above the cluttered menus in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, not to mention The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
NexusMod user Xilandro eliminated much of that clutter in his Quickloot mod, which gives all searchable items a pop-up menu. In a nutshell, rather than manually highlighting and then searching safes, bodies, chests and the like, simply mousing over them will pull up their contents for you to pick through.
Additionally, the mod allows you to customize the location and size of your loot menu. You can see it in action in the video below. Oh, and if you want to use the same system in Skyrim, NexusMod’s himika has got you covered.
