A New Mod Fixes Fallout 4’s Vague Dialogue System
Fallout 4‘s new conversation system has shifted to a BioWare-esque dialogue wheel, which displays players’ optional responses as broad attitudes rather than the exact words that would be said by the character. This isn’t a perfect system, however, as it means that occasionally the nuance of a response is lost, and not what the player intended at all.
A new mod is attempting to remedy this, however, replacing the button prompts with a numbered list of exact dialogue options. This may be a minor reformatting of the user interface, but it will undoubtedly address the grievances of many players unhappy with the new dialogue system.

The mod is the English translation of Shadwar’s NewDialog mod, which was in Russian. The translation was done by Cirosan and looks a bit like this:
Whether this mod — which will likely be quite a popular one amongst the PC playerbase — will be making its way to consoles when Bethesda eventually make mods available on these systems remains to be seen, but it’ll certainly be one of the more desired downloads.
For now, however, PC players can find the mod here, on the ever popular NexusMods website. Happy chatting!
