Then we use our chosen Mod Manager, to install that archive, like any other mod.

Waiting until the PC release and checking none of your mods have outstanding problems, makes sense.GOG Galaxy allows you to set Auto Updates for each game and they provide manual installers as well, it's up to you which you use.Falout 4 doesn't have that option and Steam doesn't allow you to turn off Auto Updates for just one game.Indeed you can't turn off auto updates for Steam at all, the best you can do is limit them to one hour per day (Downloads Tab in Steam's Settings).Setting this time to when your PC is shutdown and you're generally asleep, may not be enough, though it appears to work for me, so far.Updating both the Game and mods can break your game and/or mods, when done automatically.
