Starfield is a vast and intriguing universe with freedom in exploration and player choices. But it could be better with mods. 

Mods (short for “modifications”) are additional in-game features made by fans. They can range from cosmetic character changes to new explorable areas.  

Bethesda games typically have tons of mods, so of course, players can do the same in Starfield.
