I love this game.

But thank god for mods!
There are sooo many cool and diffrent things to add and change or simply flavor your gameplay.
And it seems robust enough not to have much dificultied changin what you enable and disable, within reason.

So do not be afraid to get something silly or op, you can change it later when you know the game and dont need crutches, or simply want to try somehting else with a twist, or got bored with the slilly thing.
You can have SOOOO many fun mods.
Every playthrue you can make so different.

And that is not even mentioning the loads of fun and different senarios people have made.
Everything from fallout to star wars to sole survivor things, i dunno but there are soo many good ones.
