NEW VEGAS BOUNTIES I

THIS MOD REQUIRES THE SOMEGUYSERIES.ESM VERSION 2.0

THIS MOD IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH MASTER UPDATE

Description:
"New Vegas Bounties I" is the first installment in a planned series for Fallout: New Vegas. Upon initiating the quest, you'll be tasked with tracking down the most malevolent and vile assortment of outlaws in the Mojave Wasteland.

Your targets will include rogue rangers, fiends, raiders, drug smugglers, cannibals, and pistoleros, to name a few. Your opponents are all designed to be boss-caliber, akin to the fiends in "Three-Card Bounty", and become gradually more difficult as you progress.

At its core, New Vegas Bounties is an action mod; extreme violence and profanity are ubiquitous. In lieu of mind-boggling puzzles or "go collect x or y resource"-type quests, you will be confronted with dangerous opponents who are designed to frustrate and kill you. You will be harried, ambushed, outnumbered, and outgunned. This is the path of a bounty hunter - take it or leave it.

It includes 436 lines of fully-voiced dialogue (as of version 1.2). I will continue to polish the lip-syncing in future updates, as it is a time-consuming process (and I've gained new respect for voiced mods!).

If you love it, hate, or are just indifferent, please post comments. My mods live and die by users who provide feedback!

Balancing:
This is an ongoing project, and I will adjust difficulty and rewards based on player feedback. Currently the mod will grant the player an addition perk for increased DT upon completion. (+ 2% DT)

As of version 1.2, the mod includes the [Taunt] speech option in confrontations with the final boss; when this is selected it will dramatically enhance the difficulty of the fight.

Compatibility:
- I try to ensure that my mods are as low-impact/conflict as possible. Besides a handful of remote bunkers and a shack, this mod only consists of NPC's, so it should be conflict-free. Please let me know if anything arises.

Voice Acting: Version 1.5+ introduces an expanded, much-improved voice acting cast:
- Alex: IronsGrasp
- Chesty: IronsGrasp
- Chuck Bowdrie: Sirropoo
- Cullen: PitchPerfect
- Dallas Courtright: Zaf
- Fred: Zaf
- Jack: Ben Britton (The_Yellow_Dart)
- Jasper: Sirropoo
- Javier Sugar: PitchPerfect
- Generic guard:
- Luke McCaffery: Zaf
- Mago: PitchPerfect
- Ricky: PitchPerfect
- Rowdy Dalton: PitchPerfect
- The Judge: MartinPurvis

Credits:
DavidRiggs: for letting me use his terrific pistol from FO3, "Sweet Revenge"

Sebazz: Fixing the Iron Sights for "Sweet Revenge"

Brigand231: Leveled Lists Fix (v1.5)

Gopher: Iron Sights FOV fix

The Community: BadPenney and other pros on the forums have been a huge help (whether they realize it or not) by posting guides and tutorials for amateurs like me. Thanks!
