About this mod

This mod attempts to provide a lore compatible alternate to the traditional Pip-Boy. Rather than a chunky computer on your arm, the permanently worn Pip-Boy is now a slim gauntlet who full interface is holographic and only visible when called upon.

Name: Hologram Pip-Boy 3000 Enriched - Holographic Wristband Replacer Addon
Version: 1.0
Date: 2015-04-03

This mod attempts to provide a lore compatible alternate to the traditional Pip-Boy. Rather than a chunky computer on your arm, the permanently worn Pip-Boy is now a slim gauntlet who full interface is holographic and only visible when called upon. 

This mod reworks Brainide's Pip-Boy Invisible When Not in Use Scripts in combination with Xzaz's Hologram Pipboy 3000 to make the wristband the standard world model for armor and clothing while preserving the hologram interface (With the Wristband behind it) when you call the Pip-Boy up. Additionally I have integrated Thebullfrog's LED Pip-Boy Light to match this new advanced technology. Press "B" to activate light. Also includes Don Knotts Parkerized Pip-Boy Retexure for the glove and the intro presentation. Note this mod mostly removes the glove though it can be found and worn separately. This version is compatible with my Vault 101 Enriched mod.

This mod uses the Hologram Pip-Boy 3000's models and textures to replace the standard Pip-Boys throughout the game with the svelte wristband. Currently it uses the new Xzaz wristband and new wristband with holo for the interface. 

The light was replaced by LED Pip-Boy Light.

Brianide Scripting changes the default mapping for the Pip-Boy Light and Mod Options key is 'B'. To change this, hold down the 'B' key (or whatever key you have the light mapped to) for three seconds, and you'll get the mod options menu.

I have reduced the time it takes for the Pip-Boy to turn on so it will take less time when activated.

I have also made the Pip-Boy glove a playable, removable, sellable item and removed from the Pip-Boy Addons list. So it will appear less often and you can get rid of it when it does.

Also edited scripts for both CG02 (Growing up fast) to change the pipboy given to the wristband, and the script of Tranquility lane to remove and return the wrist band along with the Pip-Boy.

Please rate and/or comment, so I can tell whether or not I'm doing a good job.

I also Highly recomend Shiloh DS - Clean Pipboy Screen - Install before to avoid conflicts.

Manual Install
1. Ensure FOSE is installed! 
2. Extract folder to Fallout 3 install directory.
3. I recommend Fallout Mod Manager (FOMM) to start with .esp files.
3. Start Fallout Mod Manager (FOMM), check the box next on the left to enable the .esp file(s).

Default Color is blue, but other meshes are available from Xzaz's Hologram Pipboy 3000 mod. Simply choose one and replace Data\Textures\pipboy3000\pc\english\pipboyarm01.dds

Manual Uninstall
1.) Use the "Uninstall Mod" button in the mod options menu.
2.) Save and quit.
3.) Deactivate the ESP. You can delete it along with the \0rdeiberon\009-HoloPip folder in both textures and meshes.
4.) Load the save, reequip your armor, and play as normal.

As Hologram Pip-Boy 3000 uses replacer models and textures any mod that changes those will conflict and may cause the Pip-Boy not to function or not appear correctly. This shouldn't apply to Pip-Boy menu changes as they should be unaffected. 

Also any mod that alters the Pip-Boy light or its timing, and the Pip-Boy glove will conflict.

Known Issues or Bugs
There is some minor clipping with some armors and body types.

Finally the changes I made should replace all vanilla Pip-Boy's with Xzax's wristband, with the known exception of the scene in which you are handed your first Pip-Boy. I do not know how to change the Pip-Boy you are handed as it is an animation with a special model not a body slot. Again if anyone knows to do this let me know.

Future Updates
If too many people have problems installing I will repackage the mod as individual colors to install in one place.

I would also like to adjust the wristband to fix clipping issues.

1.0, 2015-04-03 - Initial release.

You can find me on Fallout3Nexus as 'Ordeiberon'
