Said questline will introduce you to Midwitch Elementary School (based on the original Silent Hill's school, Midwich), and part of the town of Whispering Hills. It's based on Centralia, the town used as the model for Silent Hill in the movie, and the mod apparently uses laser-scanning data to recreate the town's map. 

When Fallout 4 decides to change the weather there's a chance for the foggy town to be replaced by Silent Hill's dark nightmare world, and even more of its monsters.

As for those monsters, Whispering Hills includes Silent Hill mainstays like Triangular Prism Head, Uncomfortably Sexy Faceless Nurses, and the Energiser Bunny. It also throws in some other pop culture creeps like the Demogorgon from Stranger Things and SirenHead, which is like Slender Man for people who think Slender Man is just too mainstream these days. 

You can find Whispering Hills on ModDB and NexusMods. Further episodes of Whispering Hills will add more of the town, and new companions since the existing ones can't be brought with you. I hope one of them's a dog.

Benefits of owning a dog in Silent Hill:* No fur to get on your clothes, hypoallergenic* Long tongue can get the bottom of peanut butter jars* Basically invincible unless stepped on* You can let em out and they'll just fend for themselves* Highly food motivatedFebruary 27, 2021
