Note: This tutorial is written in Action-Reaction style — Headers are the action you have to do, and the pictures that follow depict the reaction (or result) of the Creation Kit.
Start up the GECK by running the Bethesda.Net Launcher
Note: I’m assuming:
- You have Fallout 4
- You’ve downloaded the GECK (inside the Bethesda.net Launcher)
- You’ve have signed up for an account on Bethesda and are logged in.
Click OK to any dialogs that pop up. Three windows will appear:
- Object Window: Eventually this will contain all the objects in the Fallout 4 world. Everything you see in the game has an object that is referenced here
- Cell View: Specific “cells” in the world, like rooms and towns
- Render Window: Displays the current cell you’re editing
Menu-Select File > Data…
Double-click BOTH Fallout4.esm and (your mod).esm
Menu-Select File > Save
Notice that a Warnings window pops up. Ignore all the warnings, they’re normal.
The point is that any changes you make are automatically saved to the active file.
Get in the habit of saving your file regularly.
Once saved you can run Fallout 4 without exiting the program and it should pick up your mods.
