About this mod

Gauss - new impact, new projectile, new look!

Permissions and credits
Mirrors
Greetings and salutations faithful Nexus fans! It may come as no surprise to you that I have been on haitus from modding for an extended period of time, but the reason behind this absence was because of my involvement with a AAA quality game called War for the Overworld that is available on Steam!
If you're a fan of either god game or real time strategy genres then you should spend a few minutes to watch our teaser video or walk around our playable showcase and even pledge your support as a backer.



Description
===========
The epic guass rifle. Aside from new textures (default rubber, optional wood tex included) with added details, this gun has a slew of new visuals:
# When the gun is on your person, the coils will pulse with energy
# when the gun is fired the coils will become electrified with arcs (as Bethesda promised..) *1
# the projectile is a slug and no longer a "blue ball of death"
# the projectile PASSES THROUGH enemies but not walls *2
# in standard VATS you have a chance to see the slug pass through with a long energy tail behind *3
# in SLOW VATS you WILL see the slug pass through with sonic rings trail behind *4
# explosion is better, no longer looks like a blue Dukenukem3D blast
# occassionally a sizzling spot of glow will be left after impact *5
# weapon fires Electron Charge Packs as it SHOULD now! (lore/logic fact) *6
# no more lame wood on the gun. now its rubber (although i've included an alternate wood texture for the picky!)

Location
========
Alaska. send me a postcard (with snow-camo bikinis pls!)
Ur gonna need Operation Anchorage chump

Install
=======
Listen CLOSELY so you dont get (!), red triangles, missing textures, or interdimentional vortexes.
1.) UNZIP (the file, NOT ur pants!)
2.) Put the folders in this Data folder into YOUR data folder and overwrite!
3.) Open FOMM or something and check the gaussthingy.esp *7
4.) Dont forget Archive Invalidation foo'
5.) Blow some filthy mutant limbs off in VATS and marvel at the mighty force of pure awesome streaming from your Godly rifle while you laugh like a scaley demon from the Realm of Chaos. *8
6.) make sure you are in a private place so your maniacal laugh doesn't confirm your neighbors suspicions about you *9


Uninstall
=========
if you uninstall, God will kill a baby molerat **

** Extra Notes **
=================
if you have problems, try changing your load order, Some Anchorage mods may conflict. A "no hide" .esp is optional if you want the gun to be holstered on your back on top of any PA backpack. If you DONT use any .esp with this file you will NOT see coil arcs /better explosion / VATS rings or beam / or ammo/clip change. You dont really "need" this mod if you are using the newest FOOK. Do NOT touch coils when weapon is active no matter how pretty the coils look. I put my pants on both legs at a time. A gauss weapon was used in Transformers 2. Wear protective goggles when firing the gauss, earplugs suggested. If weapon is jammed do not look down into the barrel. If Deathclaw grunt is heard switch weapon from 'Safe' to 'Fire' mode. When saying "Broken Steel" in Chinese, it sounds like "your ass doesnt work". This weapon contains small pieces that are harmful if swallowed or ingested anally.

History
=======
Gauss DX was originally uploaded to the nexus a month ago. within a period of less than 48 hours it received 16 perfect 10 ratings making it the quickest rated mod i've released. Since then the mod has been improved, tested, and integrated into FOOK 2.0. Textures, sounds, visuals, and effects have all been greatly improved.

**Disclaim**

1.) This is very lore/fact suitable but don't talk to me about lore.
2.) If you don't like, dont download! (or rate) Though i dont know how you COULDNT like it
4.) If you have a GOOD suggestion i will listen (trust me i have make many things on request!!) but
i will probably not change any style to fit your "The Jetsons" ideals
5.) I give Kudos to player who take the time to upload their screenshot to my mod!!
3.) Oops i forgot number 3. Here it is. But there isnt a 6.)

Footnotes = *
=========

*1 prior to releasing Operation Anchorage, Bethesda and IGN showed cool screenshots of Gauss Rifle with electrified coils when firing! Now you have it courtesy of me

*2 It passes through enemies but will not harm the enemy behind. Its an illusion. It MAY pass through a thin wall/solid object, but will likely not harm an enemy behind

*3 roughly 20% chance to see a "bluish" energy trail following the slug in normal VATS

*4 slow VATS is 0.03 of Real Time and is 100% garauntee to show you the "sonic rings" following the slug. Slow VATS happens under certain conditions (i.e. distance, crit chance, dismember, fatal, visibility, ect eThct)

*5 The sizzling spot is intentional and just for effect. it may not be 100% centereed and will certainly not be seen 100% of time.

*6 Gauss in previous fallout used "2mm EC" packs, EC = ??? yeah! Also, Chinese DID NOT HAVE MICRO FUSION TECHNOLOGY!
A "Electron Charge" pack is what provides the electric for this electrified weapon, genius (get a clue Bethsquash)

*7 GaussCompleteBeta.esp

*8 Realm of Chaos not always. Sometimes from Realm of Stinging Foam

*9 Suspicions of your origins, not gender preference

** Sometimes it will be born blind instead of just killing it

**1 Buying FO3, DLC, or any other PC game is the equal to 1 US dollar (regardless of how new or old)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NO BABY MOLERATS WERE HARMED IN THE CREATION OR TESTING OF THIS WEAPON. A DEATHCLAW GOT A BLOODY NOSE. A BOATFLY WAS STEPPED ON. A FERAL GHOUL STUBBED HIS TOE, HE SAID MANY PROFAIN WORDS. SHAME ON HIM. GUESS THATS WHY THEY ARE "FERAL".

DONATIONS MADE TO BMBF (BABY MOLERAT BRIGHTER FUTURES) SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO WJS, ALL PROCEEDS WILL HELP TO STOP PRODUCTION OF "REPELLANT STICKS".
