Updated load order for Blackened

ATTENTION: This mod requires manual installation.

This mod was created for the single purpose of having all the CALIBR ammunition from FWE in the
armory of the awesome hideout mod by danthegeek:
As I was doing that, this mod soon transformed in a patch aiming to make it more in tune with the FWE
harsh wasteland "reality".

danthegeek was kind enough to allow me to change his great mod and advised me to upload my work so
as other people might enjoy it too, so enjoy and any feedback is welcome.

Update 2.3.2
    --> A couple more fixes to the weapon wall scripts.
    --> Trimmed a bit of unneeded data from the armors.
    --> Fixed a bug in the detox system, due to some functions only seeing rounded numbers.
    --> Started modifying the armory workbench. New interface, and it activates FWE's time lapse. The dialog flickers a bit, but I'll try to solve that. Not yet complete, but I figured I could use some feedback on bugs as I add more menu items.
    --> Added an option for brighter lights in the UH terminal, under "settings". Currently only in the lab, so people that use darker ENBs can give some feedback before I add the others. After choosing the option you must turn the lights on for it to take effect.

Update 2.3.1
    --> Rock-It Launcher now rightfully processed as a Big Gun.
    --> Metal Blaster now shows the proper texture.
    --> Added the Curse Breaker/Excalibat to the melee wall.
    --> The Gauss Pistol PPK12 and the Gauss M72 Rifle have also been fixed. They are Small Guns that happen to belong in the energy weapons wall. If you let the armory sort it out, they should appear with no issues.
    --> All containers and wall scripts have been perused (yes, I used "perused") and cleaned/fixed. Hopefully the errors are now very few to none.
    --> Wall help messages have been changed for readability.
    --> Added a litttle surprise to the armor stand.
    --> DLC and DLC+WMK add-ons will have to be downloaded again.

Update 2.3
    --> New weapon wall: Energy. As before, if you have any energy weapons inside the regular weapons wall container, take them to the new wall or to the energy weapons crate.
    --> Projectile and Energy walls are completed. If I missed weapons or if the display doesn't work properly, please let me know.
    --> Fixed the bug in the melee weapon wall that made the hand axe to be always on display.
    --> Fixed a bug in the Bookshelf that would toggle the display of books if you had a skill book in the shelf but not the "Read" version.

Update 2.2
    --> The hideout now starts hidden until discovered.
    --> Added all the FWE ammo to the mannequin list, so they can now wield all the weapons that use CALIBR.
    --> Added a new weapon wall, Melee. So if you have any melee weapons on the common weapon wall, move them to the new wall or to the melee weapon crate.
    --> The Melee and Craftable weapon walls are completed. Feel free to comment on the ones I missed or have the wrong model/texture, so it can be fixed.
    --> Weapon walls have a new feature: if there are two or more weapons assigned to a spot on the wall, you can choose which one to display by putting that weapon on the wall, using the wall menu. You can even choose vanilla weapons.
    --> Updated most wall texts to reflect the changes.
    --> Moved the boxes next to the workbench in the armory, so you'll need to re-download the add-on for WMK if your're using an older version, so it doesn't look wierd.
Update 2.1.1:
    --> Important bugfix! The detox system was using a function for setting the rad level that is very inflexible regarding changes from other sources. My mistake for basing my script on the existing one, when they worked differently.. This results in players that used the detox system could go into negative rads when using RadAway. It is now fixed so new players should have no issues.
    If you have the negative rads problem, go into the console and type the following commands (without the quotes). Press enter and leave the console after each one.
        "player.restoreav radiationrads 10000". That will put you into the limit of your negative rads value. If you reach -10000 rads, use the command again.
        "player.modav radiationrads X", where "X" is the rads you have now, but without the minus sign.
        "player.getav radiationrads". It should now give the value 0.00. If it doesn't, type "player.forceav radiationrads 0"
        That should clear the problem permanently, but test it out a bit. I checked it with various save games I had and this process solved the problem everytime, but every load order has its quirks.
    I humbly apologize for this rookie mistake (it was the first change I made in the mod). And thanks to mamelukturbo for point out to the issue and make me realize it was my mod doing it.
--> On a related note, detox points now update the moment you close the RadAway container.

Update 2.1:
--> Changed a bit the way the simulator works. It now gives a lot less XP per run (it was easy
to exploit before). I expect the way I coded it to be compatible with most XP gaining mods, including the
ones that remove XP altogether.
--> Changed the weapons stats so they are more in-line with equivalent uniques from FWE.
--> Made the basement workbench work a little better alongside the FWE one.
--> Detox no longer triggers everytime it scans. Only when the player has rads.
--> Ammo values for the ammo press have been slightly tweaked.
--> The armory weapon walls now search for weapons in the storage containers, so you don't
need to put them on the wall yourself. For the weapons to appear you have to open and exit the wall's
inventory, or any of the weapon containers.
--> The display also detects if you have special/unique versions and updates accordingly, and
has a couple FWE weapons added so far. All the vanilla weapons (I think) have the FWE textures and
models applied for consistency, if they have one. This is a work in progress. Eventually most, if not all,
FWE weapons will be added. In the meantime, there will be some disarray in the armory, just bear with


This is the list of changes.

In the living area:
--> Changed the detox and purifying process so they're no longer free. You need to supply
them with RadAway and Rad-X, respectively. The details and instructions are in the hideout's information
--> Added the FWE chems to the medical sorter, in addition to extra storage containers.
--> Changed the WonderMeatMachine into its FWE counterpart, and all sinks now provide
dirty water.
--> Changed the growing time for the various plants to 10 and 15 days (so that the food can
only sustain you for a few days, and the hideout is not totally self-sufficient). Lab time to create a
compound was also increased.
--> Reduced the healing power of the cave water. You now need to soak for an entire day to
heal 100% limb damage and 100 HP.
--> Removed the NavMesh from the area behind the secret door, as I found it weird to
sometimes discover a companion stuck behind a wall that was supposed to be secret...
--> Added a couple of safes to the player room, for conveniance purposes. They all autolock, as
the original.
--> Changed the shelf beside the bedroom door so it accepts already read books.
--> I also added FWE stuff to the junk disposal system, and tweaked the values down a bit,
because scrap metal is a valuable in FWE universe, and should't be so easily available.
--> Changed the Nuka Vending Machine script that gives nuka-cola, but changed it to give
Nuka Quantums. To do so, it needs various items including 10 regular nuka-colas and a piece of nukalurk
meat. It has a new entry in the hideout info terminal and the vending machine will tell you what you need
if you don't have all the ingredients.
--> Added FWE foods and drinks to the sorters in the player's bedroom.
--> Fixed a bug in the original mod which prevented pears to be harvested more than once.

In the armory:
--> All of the CALIBR ammunition added by FWE is now proudly displayed in a slighty
increased armory. The ammo types have also been added to the sorters. Some ammo boxes now hold a
different amount of ammo. The ammo press now accepts and creates all the new ammo types. I also
changed the conversion value of ammo types, to reflect their caps value and rarity.
--> Joined the armory workbenche with the FWE one, to have access to FWE crafting options
in the armory.
--> Reworked the item sorter in the armory, dividing them by type instead of by weapon
recipes, since FWE adds many craftable weapons with some items being used by more than one recipe.
--> Increased the display room a bit, because with a heavy load order comes a lot of loot you
want to put on display.

I also changed the ordering system, adding the new ammo and modifying the prices. Some
prices are now quite high, I know, but as an example, the Fatman should not be easily available, being a
powerful and rare weapon. I applied the same idea on all the other items.

And finally, removed some rugs on both floors to give it a more "vaulty" look (I sincerily hope
dan won't get mad at me for throwing out his tapestries...).

1. Extract the files to a temporary location.
2. Copy all files into your Fallout 3\Data directory, overriding if necessary.

1. Uncheck the .esp file.
2. Delete the files added by this mod.

Note: If you want to revert to the original, remove everything from the new containers (In the armory
and in the main area), pick up all the ammo on the shelves (or at least the CALIBR ammo, the 10mm, the
.32, the .308, and both the bottlecap mines and nuka-grenades) and any items on the extended part of the
display room and you should exit the hideout. Then save, change the esp's and load the game again. Also
make sure you don't have an incoming order of items.

It has all the compatibility issues of both mods: UH and FWE.

Known Issues or Bugs
The sorters might have some problems when dealing with many items. This has to do with recalculating
weight and other parameters when removing the items.
You can still use the sorters, but be warned that the game can crash sometimes.
Some of the display scripts might not work properly (I could have overlooked something).
I'll iron out those issues as I finish the work on the armory walls.
