Even though it is a cyberpunk dystopia set in the future, it can still be real.
Cyberpunk 2077 puts you in a cyberpunk neo-futuristic world with a lot of mystery, crime, and things to do.
It’s easy to get caught up in the game and feel like you’re a Night City resident with a body that’s been modified to hell and back, but a few things in the game can pull you out of the experience. Immersion-wise, there are a lot of things that could be better, from bugs to simple flaws like not having enough cars or visual changes. Thanks to a lot of great mods, you can really get into the cyberpunk spirit and take things into your own hands.
The Immersion Patch Series
Some of the best parts of a game are the ones you don’t even notice. There are many simple things that, if they weren’t there, would make it hard to get into the story. On the other hand, certain things and events can stick out like a sore thumb and make the world feel more empty. Anygoodname, a Nexus modder, has made a lot of great patches that you can add to your install without any trouble.
You can’t miss the mods that add missing animations and sounds to certain quests. But you can also get a much more immersive experience by downloading the patches that stop NPCs from panicking when they just use devices and stop crowds from reacting to stealth actions they wouldn’t have seen.
Better Food Vendors, Rippers, and Bartenders
In Cyberpunk 2077, there are a lot of people who work as bartenders, food vendors, and rippers. Most of the time, when you talk to them, you’re just taken to a menu screen and that’s it. By making mods that add animations to these things, modder Deceptious has made the experience flow better.
You can actually do work at a ripper’s chair (yes, even Vik! ). Eat food from a food stall, and drink whatever you ordered at the bar. With just a few more animations, these actions feel like they have a bigger effect on your character.
Pet Your Cat
In the game, you can adopt Nibbles the cat and have your own cat friend in your apartment. When Nibbles moves into your apartment, you can no longer pet her. A terrible crime against people.
You can pet and fuss with your cat while it’s in the apartment. Thanks to this mod that’s easy to install. Peace has been made. Live in more than one place? Since Nibbles likes where she is, you can add more cats by installing mods. They should also be able to use this mod.
Even though it’s fun to pass the time by doing other side quests or exploring Night City. Sometimes it’s just easier to skip time and get to the mission you want to do. If you want the time skip feature to be a little more immersive. This mod just lets you see what’s going on around you while the time skip is happening.
Who doesn’t like to look at the game world from time to time? The hotkey for this mod is already set. But you can change it with a text editor if you want to set it yourself.
Making Fashion Matter
With the StreetStyle mod, there is a new system that makes what you wear an important part of the game. This is more than what the piece of clothing offers in terms of armor or mods. With this mod, the type of gear you wear will affect both skill checks for using devices and skill checks for talking to people.
You can get a buff if you wear gear that fits a certain style. If you dress like a certain group, they will be less likely to think you are an intruder.
The more you upgrade your ocular cyberware. The more markers for every item and action you can do start to show up on your screen. This can be helpful, but it can also look pretty messy. Sometimes it even makes it hard to see what you can actually get.
This mod makes these markers less noticeable, so you can only see loot that is rare or better right away. Some markers only show up when you’re looking for them. The great thing about this mod is that you can change these settings to the level you want. For example, you can choose to still see things like access points in your normal vision.
Realistic Traffic Density
Everyone does hate traffic, that’s true. In a video game, though? Stunning.
The streets of Night City just feel more alive, with cars and people going about their business and sometimes getting in each other’s way. The mod is focused on performance. So it can be set up to work with the power or limits of your rig. You no longer feel like you’re the only one riding around the city.
Good Old Bug Fixes
Happy Wheels game has bugs, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying all the other great things it has to offer. Some of the most annoying bugs in the game have been fixed by wonderful modders.
If modders were able to keep Skyrim alive for over a decade and make it a staple of its genre. There’s no reason Cyberpunk 2077 can’t do the same.
