With “Starfield” now in the mix, it’s no surprise that the modding community has quickly risen to the occasion. While it’s still early days for “Starfield” modding, enthusiasts can already enjoy an assortment of mods that cater to various preferences:

  1. Starfield Upscaler: A transformative mod that swaps FSR for DLSS, crafted by the talented modder PureDark, who also delivered a similar enhancement for “Fallout 4.”
  2. Cleanfield: This mod streamlines your gaming experience by eliminating introductory videos and the message of the day, ensuring a faster start and a visually pleasing main menu.
  3. Move or Disable XP Bar: A solution to the XP meter obstructing your crosshairs – a common player gripe. This mod rectifies the issue, though it requires a minor .ini tweak to function optimally.
  4. Achievement Enabler: A boon for those who enjoy both mods and achievements, as it reenables achievements while using mods.
  5. Dualsense PS5 Icons: Tailored for PlayStation controller users, this mod ensures that on-screen icons seamlessly match your controller buttons.
