Unofficial patch for VaultTec Accelerated Focus System and Horizon.  

I'm feeling pretty confident I've fixed most of the bugs and inconsistencies by now so I'm no longer considering this BETA.  That doesn't really change anything though.  If you find any bugs or inconsistencies please report via the bug tracking tab.  I only offer support for the latest version of VAFS and Horizon.  If you're using an older version of VAFS or Horizon I can offer no solutions to your bugs.


Update - 6/21/2017: I made my first pass at updating for Horizon 1.1.1 and it didn't look like there were any changes necessary.  I did find a few typos and I also added the DEF_UI perk tags but no other changes were made.  I haven't played with 1.1.1 yet though so there may be some balancing changes necessary to account for the new weapon system.


DLC Compatibility:
Horizon actually explicitly disables the new perks from Far Harbor and Nuka World so there's very little to patch.  If you have Nuka World installed also download and use the optional Nuka World patch.  You don't need the Nuka World patch at all as long as you follow the load order below.  Since Horizon excludes the new perks from Far Harbor anyways no additional patch is needed for that DLC.


Installation:
Use NMM or Mod Organizer.  It makes life so much easier.


Load Order:
...(other mods)...
VaultTecAcceleratedFocusSystem.esp
VaultTecAcceleratedFocusSystem - FarHarbor.esp (optional)
VaultTecAcceleratedFocusSystem - NukaWorld.esp (optional)
...(other mods)...
Z_Horizon.esp
Z_Horizon_DLC_ALL.esp (optional) - or -
Z_Horizon_DLC_Nuka.esp (optional) - or -
Z_Horizon_DLC_FarHarbor.esp (optional) - or -
VAFS-Horizon-Patch.esp
VAFS-NWDLC-Horizon-Patch.esp <- Not needed provided you follow this load order.


Automatic Weapon AP Cost in VAFS (New with version 1.1):
Since Horizon buffs automatic weapons so they deal more damage and VAFS AP cost was balanced around vanilla damage I increased the action point cost for firing an automatic weapon.  Instead of reducing the action point cost of automatic weapons by 60%, it now only reduces by 25%, but you deal more damage per bullet thanks to Horizon's buff.


Jet:
All jet chems have had the removal of dehydration forwarded from Horizon.
All jet chems kept the DEF_UI tag from horizon so they will display with icons if you're using Horizon's DEF_UI options.
Jet chem Durations have been adjusted somewhere between VAFS/Vanilla and Horizon where conflicts occurred.

Jet 
  • Move/reload 40% faster for 15 seconds (unchanged from VAFS)

Buffjet 
  • Move/reload 40% faster, +3 Strength, and +35 +50 (with version 1.3) max AP for 15 seconds

Psycho Jet 
  • Move/reload 40% faster, +35% Damage, +35 Damage Resist and +35 Max AP for 15 seconds (updated in version 1.1 for consistency)

Ultra Jet 
  • Move/reload 40% faster and +100 max AP for 25 seconds (unchanged from VAFS)


Perks:
Most perks did not directly conflict and I just combined the perk descriptions so they made sense for both Horizon and VAFS changes.  DLC perks were removed to match Horizon's behavior.  Those that did conflict are covered below.

  • Rank 1 - No change from Horizon.
