Yes, you need a tool to extract the game's materials and textures if you're doing a recolour (and to extract meshes if you're doing a new or modified mesh). You need a material editor to edit the material files to make Material Swaps, as recolour sets are called in FO4. And you need the Bethesda Creation Kit to package your new creations with. Here's a list of what you'll require and where to get them:
Bethesda Creation Kit: https://www.creationkit.com/fallout...title=Main_Page , and under Install the Creation Kit: Fallout 4, click the link to download the Bethesda.net Launcher. From the Launcher, download the Creation Kit and install it.
Bethesda Archive Extractor: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/78/? . MAKE SURE YOU ALSO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL MICROSOFT VC++ 2015 REDIST as instructed on BAE's download window (link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/dow...s.aspx?id=53587 ), or else BAE won't work. Install the VC++ redistributable first, and then install BAE.
Material Editor: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/3635/?
And you need a graphics editor able to work with .dds files, such as Photoshop. FO4 uses DXT5 for textures with alpha, DXT1 for textures with no alpha, with Generate Mipmaps On.
As mentioned, if you need pointing in the right direction getting started, I'll give some useful links and try to answer any questions I can! For instance, once you've made your recolour, you also need to know how to make it obtainable in-game. Easy to do with Workshop-crafted furniture/decor objects, but trickier with 'CAS'-type stuff, so I can tell you what to do in that case.

I love Bethesda's Fallout games because their game engine produces so many hilariously funny bugs/glitches, but last night I was treated to the weirdest one I've ever experienced so far - has this happened to anyone here? It went on for about 10-15 minutes and I managed to capture the last 4 minutes of it. Kamikaze NPCs, LOL. The video gets wackier as it goes on, and the glitch only stopped when an enemy appeared and the NPCs went into combat mode, and then they returned to normal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6Bvo7okLfM . So funny! Loved Gage's remark of "That sure was fun, huh, boss?" at the end of the glitch.
My Fallout 4 stuff is at Ezzy's Fallout 4 Creations, Mamba City. The site is 18+ but my creator forum is all family-friendly.

That's the time sync glitch, I have had minor ones and seen even one of the super mutant behemoth falling from the sky and kill himself.
The best thing to do when it happens is to quit and startup again at the last auto save unless you did one yourself just before it starts.
