About this mod

A mod that sets caravans, permanent and temporary companions, Scavengers, hunters (non-cannibal), plus several vulnerable NPCs in Fallout 3 to be essential. This is a personal mod that I decided to share.

Permissions and credits
This is a very basic mod that sets caravans, permanent and temporary companions, Scavengers, hunters (non-cannibal), plus several vulnerable NPCs in Fallout 3 to be essential. No scripting just changing NPC flags to be essential and respawn so the only thing you can do is knock the NPC unconscious, should be compatible with just about anything, but I don't entirely know. Very new to making mods this is my first so if you find any bugs please post them on this page for me to fix, and tell me of any incompatibilities so that I can list them here. The optional files are there so you can pick and choose, the main file is not required for them to work. Any changes, fixes, and or additions you think I should add please tell me so I can do so.
- If you have any mods overhauling the main companions you may have a problem with the companions being essential, in that case, use the bat file along with whatever part of the main mod your using. Bat files should be compatible with anything.
 - I recommend loading as far down on your load list as possible I had some problems with caravan guards dying but after doing this it seems to have fixed it.

 - Essential NPC's Full
      Essential NPC's Main - requires only Fallout 3 - required file
      Essential NPC's Anchorage
      Essential NPC's Broken Steel
      Essential NPC's Point Lookout
      Essential NPC's Mothership Zeta

must use main but can disable any you don't have the DLC for, same for any optional files that have a DLC plugin.
Installation: just drop into the Fallout 3 Data folder
As for the bat files you need to put them in the folder with the Fallout3.exe, and when you go into the game open the console then type bat esson to enable and bat essoff to disable, after that save your game.
