Creation Club is a feature in Fallout 4 that allows you to download and install official mods from Bethesda and other creators. These mods can add new items, quests, enemies, and more to your game. However, not all Creation Club mods are created equal. Some of them may be buggy, incompatible, or simply not to your liking. If you want to uninstall Creation Club mods from Fallout 4, you may find it difficult to do so in-game. Fortunately, there are ways to remove them manually from your game files. In this article, we will show you how to uninstall Creation Club mods from Fallout 4 in two easy steps.

Step 1: Delete the mod files from the Data folder




The first step to uninstall Creation Club mods from Fallout 4 is to delete the mod files from the Data folder in your Fallout 4 directory. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Open Steam and go to your Library.



  • Right-click on Fallout 4 and select Properties.



  • Go to the Local Files tab and click on Browse Local Files.



  • This will open the Fallout 4 folder on your computer. Open the Data folder inside it.



  • In the Data folder, look for any files that start with "cc". These are the Creation Club mod files. You can also check the file names to see which mod they belong to.



  • Select all the files that start with "cc" and delete them. You can also move them to another folder if you want to keep a backup.



Step 2: Delete the manifest files from the Creations folder




The second step to uninstall Creation Club mods from Fallout 4 is to delete the manifest files from the Creations folder in your Fallout 4 directory. These files are used by the game to keep track of which Creation Club mods you have installed. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Go back to the Fallout 4 folder on your computer.



  • Open the Creations folder inside it.



  • In the Creations folder, look for any files that end with ".manifest". These are the manifest files for the Creation Club mods.



  • Open each manifest file with a text editor, such as Notepad.



  • Look for the line that contains the name of the mod file that you deleted in step 1. For example, if you deleted "ccBGSFO4001-PipBoy(Black).esl", look for a line that says "ccBGSFO4001-PipBoy(Black).esl".



  • Delete that line from the manifest file. If there are other lines in the manifest file for other mods that you want to keep, leave them alone.



  • Save and close the manifest file.



Done!




Congratulations! You have successfully uninstalled Creation Club mods from Fallout 4. Now you can launch your game and enjoy it without any unwanted mods. If you want to reinstall any of the Creation Club mods that you deleted, you can do so from the Creation Club menu in-game. However, be aware that some mods may require you to start a new game or load an earlier save to work properly.

How to Uninstall Creation Club Mods from Fallout 4 on Console




If you are playing Fallout 4 on console, such as PS4 or Xbox One, you may find it harder to uninstall Creation Club mods from your game. This is because you cannot access the game files or folders on your console, and there is no option to uninstall or disable mods from the Creation Club menu in-game. However, there are still some ways to remove Creation Club mods from your game on console. Here are some of them:


  • Use a mod manager app. Some mod manager apps, such as Bethesda.net or Nexus Mod Manager, allow you to manage your mods on your console remotely from your PC or mobile device. You can use these apps to uninstall or disable Creation Club mods from your game on console.



  • Clear your reserved space. Reserved space is a portion of your console's storage that is allocated for mods and other game data. You can clear your reserved space to delete all of your mods, including Creation Club ones, from your game on console. To do this, go to your console's settings, select Fallout 4, and choose "Clear reserved space". Note that this will also delete any other mods that you have installed from other sources, such as Bethesda.net or Nexus Mods.



  • Reinstall your game. If all else fails, you can reinstall your game on console to remove all of your mods, including Creation Club ones, from your game. To do this, delete Fallout 4 from your console's storage, and then reinstall it from the disc or the digital store. Note that this will also delete any other game data that you have, such as saves, settings, or achievements.



How to Avoid Downloading Creation Club Mods in Fallout 4




If you want to avoid downloading Creation Club mods in Fallout 4 in the first place, you can do so by following these tips:


  • Disable automatic updates. Some updates for Fallout 4 may include new Creation Club content that will be downloaded automatically to your game. You can disable automatic updates for Fallout 4 by going to your Steam or console settings and choosing "Do not automatically update this game" or "Update only when I launch". This way, you can choose when to update your game and avoid downloading unwanted Creation Club content.



  • Ignore the Creation Club menu. The Creation Club menu in Fallout 4 will show you all the available mods that you can purchase or download for free from the Creation Club. However, you do not have to access this menu at all if you do not want to use any of the Creation Club mods. Simply ignore the menu and play your game as usual.



  • Use alternative mod sources. If you are looking for mods for Fallout 4 that are not from the Creation Club, you can use alternative mod sources that offer a wider range of mods for free or donation. Some of these mod sources are Nexus Mods, Bethesda.net, LoversLab, and others. You can browse, download, and install mods from these sources using mod manager tools or manually.
