5. Achievement Enabler
One of the setbacks of adding mods to your game is that it disables achievements. However, there should be no reason to disable achievements as long as you’re adding optimization or simply convenience mods.
With the Achievement Enabler mod, you will earn achievements normally regardless of how many mods you add to Starfield.

With the Jetpack Overhaul mod, you’re able to use jetpacks by pressing and holding the button instead of a single press.

2. Smooth Ship Reticle (120FPS Smooth UI)
The Smooth Ship Reticle mod is a UI tweak that fixes the spaceship targeting reticle, which appears laggy. The main reason it looks laggy is because it’s automatically locked at 30 FPS.
With this mod, the reticle will be updated to 120 FPS. On top of that, this mod boosts all UI elements to 120 FPS, which will make the game look significantly smoother.
