Become a post-apocalyptic photographer with these console commands.
Fallout 4 is a world of expansive vistas, ramshackle settlements, and shrouded ruins. Its combination of 1950's style and space-age technology covered in the grime of a long since passed apocalypse, give the game a unique aesthetic. This guide lists the most useful console commands in Fallout 4 to help you take those perfect screenshots of it all.
Opening and Using the Console Command Window
The console command window is opened by pressing the tilde key (~) in the upper left corner of the keyboard, under escape (Esc). The window is closed by pressing (~) again. Codes are typed in the bottom left corner and a list of previous commands appears along the left side of the screen. Pressing (Enter) executes the command. Case is not important. The arrow keys can be used to select recently used commands, which is useful if you need to do the same one several times. These lists and selections are maintained if the window is closed and reopened, even if you go back to a past save. Only restarting the game clears the history.
Not having a proper understanding of console commands and exactly how they work may damage your game if they are incorrectly implemented or misused. While the codes involved in this guide are fairly safe and simple, it is always a good idea to create a New Save before attempting to make changes to the game, as long-term mistakes or consequences may not become noticeable for some time.
Toggle commands only have an on/off state, and can be turned back off by re-entering them. Make sure you don't have anything selected while entering toggle commands, or they may not work.
Toggle Collision / NoClip Turns off/on collision which allows you to walk in any direction through walls, landscape, or any other physical object. This has a similar effect to Free Camera, but the player model still moves with you.
Toggle Free Camera Allows the camera to move in any direction without moving the player model. Normal movement controls still work with the addition of left/right clicking for vertical movement. Typing tfc 1 instead, will also freeze time.
Toggle Menus Hides the HUD, including menus, compass, and crosshair, but will also hide the console command window. The console can still be used, but will not be visible until tm is re-entered.
Toggle Wireframe Toggles wireframe view of world geometry, items, and NPCs. Trippy
Some commands require a target, such as an NPC or item. If it is in sight, then use the mouse to select it while in the command window. Once selected, its reference ID will appear at the top the the window. Nearly all of these commands can be applied to the player by adding the prefix: "player." EX: player.additem f 100 will add 100 caps.
Toggle Control Driven If used when a NPC is selected, it will transfer your control to this NPC, but any command input will also be passed to the player unless player.tc is used to remove control. Use with tfc and sucsm <#> to create a better cammera.
Non-target commands are used to change non-taget specific settings or states within the game. Unlike toggle commands, these may require a value to be entered (without the < >). For example, if you want to increase the camera’s field of view to 180°, enter fov 180. To return it to the default 65°, type fov 65.
Clear Screen Blood This removes all blood effects from the screen. This is not a toggle command as it cannot be undone once entered.
Set Field of View The default is about 65 and using the command with no value will set the fov to 75°. 180 is the maximum enterable value.
Force Weather Changes the current weather to the specified value. Must exit the command window and unfreeze time to take effect. See below for some examples, or check out a larger list of IDs Here.[fallout.wikia.com]
save <save name>
Save Game Creates a new save with the specified name. This is a quick and useful way to save specific screenshot setups for future reference. The save may be located under LOAD > SELECT CHARACTER > ALL SAVES.
Takes a screenshot An alternative to F12 that saves to Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4\ as "ScreenShot#.png." Make sure to use tm first, or it will capture the command window.
set gamehour to <#>
Change Time of Day Changes the time of day without advancing time. Values range from 0 (12:00 AM) to 23 (11:00 PM). Negative values may crash the game. Must exit the command window and unfreeze time to take effect.
set timescale to <#>
Speed of Time Sets how fast time advances in-game. Default value is 20, while 1 is the same rate as the real world. 0 freezes the time of day, which is good for prolonging that perfect sunset, but can cause bugs after fast traveling.
Free Camera Speed Changes the speed of the free-flying camera. Default speed is 10, so typing sucsm 40 would make the camera move 4 times as fast. Drop it to a lower value like 5 to get more precise movement.
If you regularly have to run a specific set of commands, you can create a "batch" text file to quickly run all of them with one simple command called bat <file name>. Fallout 4 batch files are lists of console commands that are run one after the other. They have no loops, tests, or other logic and execution doesn't stop if there's a problem with one of the commands. You can create any number of batch files, each with its own purpose.
To Use the bat Command:
Create a text file that contains a list of console commands (one per line).
Name it something you'll remember, like Camera01.txt
Place the file in your Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4\Data directory (You can organize them into sub-folders too).
Start the game and bring up the console.
Type bat followed by the name of your batch file, for example
Each command will then be automatically executed in order.
If all of the commands are toggles, then running the same batch again will return everything to its original setting. If not, you may find it a good idea to create a second file to accomplish this.
CameraON.txt to turn all your settings on
CameraOFF.txt to return everything to its original state
Some commands will not work properly if done at the same time. In the image above there is a mistake. If time is frozen (tfc 1), then the time of day will not be changed (set gamehour to 19). Changing the time of day only works if time is unfrozen after exiting the command window. Keep these conditions in mind when creating your lists.
Here is a batch file to automatically save the game (will write over old save of that name), remove the HUD, enable free camera and freeze time, set the camera speed to half the default, and clear blood effects.
The following are examples of some of the weather effects possible with the fw <formID> command. The form ID can be found by scrolling over each picture. Leading zeros do not have to be entered. A larger list of IDs can be found Here[fallout.wikia.com] (All preview screenshots were taken at 12:00.)
