When playing a video game, movement is one of the most important aspects to consider. It’s especially important in games that feature lots of exploration and frantic combat. Whether you’re trying to get somewhere fast or avoiding enemies, you’ll probably want to run (or jetpack) most of the time. That’s why it’s frustrating when your Starfield character starts walking slow.
Luckily, the modding community has come to your rescue. The following Starfield mods will let you jog slower if that’s what you want.
One of the most common complaints people have about Starfield is how slow their character’s jogging or walking speed is compared to NPCs. This can be annoying, particularly if you’re on a quest and need to keep up with NPCs. Fortunately, the modding community has made it easy to fix this problem with a simple mod.
Just download the free mod from Nexus Mods, and you’ll instantly be able to jog at the same speed as NPCs. The only downside is that you’ll have to wait for your character to start moving — unlike NPCs, who automatically move at the same pace as you do.
Another common Starfield complaint is how long it takes for the game to respond when you try to pick up items or interact with something in the environment. That delay can be a pain, and this mod helps alleviate it by reducing it to about 300 milliseconds. Just install the Freeware mod by c_tsai and you’ll see a huge improvement in your gaming experience.
For those who play the PlayStation version of Starfield, this mod can make your life a lot easier. Rather than using the Xbox controller icons in-game, the DualSense – PS5 Icons mod will replace them with the PlayStation ones so that you can feel more at home on your computer.
As is always the case with mods, there are a few things you should know before installing any of these. First, you should backup your Starfield folders before making any changes to them. This will ensure you can roll back to a clean version if necessary. You should also check the mod description carefully to see if it requires any special settings in your game or if there are any potential issues with compatibility.
You should also keep in mind that some mods may disable achievements, so if you’re planning on using any of these it might be wise to turn them off before you start playing. You can do this through the Nexus Mods Vortex installer, which will handle the process for you. Otherwise, it’s up to you to find the perfect combination of mods for your own personal Starfield experience. Just remember that Bethesda has a history of updating its games, which can break mods or cause them to stop working altogether. So it’s up to you to monitor the Starfield mod scene and stay up-to-date. Good luck out there! And be sure to check out our full guide on how to mod Starfield for even more tips and tricks.
