About this image

First off, this mod is designed to be worn over the Brotherhood of Steel hood/jumpsuit, so I will NOT be offended by mesh resizes to fit the normal heads of the character, I saw someone do that and I am happy about this, I am modeling this off a mesh that's ghetto af, I exported an armor set and the size got all off, but the proportions are ok so I hope it doesn't add extra hassle to modders. Anyway, into the update, sorry no models/textures for download, YET. 

So I made a lot of progress over the last 2 days. I made a lot of textures, and I am not done. These are just some combos, I have made many, many retextures for the heli face mask, I will make a post with those later, a pilot O2 style mask, and armor variations. I will also be making a smg version, with more mags on the chest rig to mimic ghost recon wildlands, letting you have the ammo you are using on your armor. I also made the pilot eye visor and goggles. The visor has multiple textures, including gold, black, clear, and iridium(Oakley color puke stuff). The goggles include 2 frame colors, black and brown/tan, with 2 lens colors, black and gold/bronze. I also plan on making a riot face shield, possibly with variants inspired by tachanka/pubg/gsg 9, glass default one, basically hinge shields you can wear up and down. I know it looks like a lot, but I won't release this thing until it's done, and I have ideas for the arms and legs as well. Throw suggestions in the comments, didn't even think about pilot masks, but them comments did, and I went down a rabbit hole for heli crew chiefs getting their masks airbrushed and it opened an amazing door for textures. Ideas on the fallout equivalent of glow sticks is also appreciated, I was trying to find props to throw on the armor and those kept coming up, but not particularly lore friendly. I can't wait to wear this stuff in game, to be honest this whole stay inside rule actually started to make me more productive, lol.

Also it is super easy for me to make patches, send me ideas for those also. I welcome dumb ones, but also need more cool lore friendly ones, the NCR one was sick af and since I made one for all the major FO4 factions I need more ideas. And I don't mean just things like major factions, think things that those factions would wear, like one I haven't shown based off "Patrolling the Mojave Almost Makes You Wish For a Nuclear Winter". Stuff like that. I'm trying to capture that spirit of everyday guys, things my dad told me, actual guys were wearing in Iraq and stuff, like "fun meter" and "no step on snek" but related to fallout lore/world.

Happy modding! I am anticipating your suggestions, last time it got me to make an entire accessory, and I'm hoping to get some sick patches out of this deal. Also I will totally be making more DOOM references since it's the best. Expect more patches or skins about DOOM. Quarantine may be temporary, but DOOM is Eternal.

    This keeps getting better!

    I like the general direction this thing is headed. Gear, pouches, vest all fit together. One suggestion, I hope that down the road you will supply us with either a cool us jumpsuit or a russian Gorka suit to match that sweet gear set.

    Patches idea: Unlimited Feral season; Brotherhood or nothing; Aiming by ricochet and Fire hose of death user.

    Rock On, Really.

      Thanks! Will be taking the patch ideas. Also I planned this to be like combat armor, so you wear it over stuff, and there are a couple cool mods that add Gorka suits, ones I love a lot, and hopefully mine should be compatible. I'll be throwing this one in my modeling program to make sure there aren't clipping issues after I finish all the pieces:

      But yeah, the Gorka suit is honestly a pairing I had in mind from the start, something about Russian/soviet gear and leather feels Fallout somehow.

    Another note, the goggles can be stored on the helmet, up above the eyes. I have made a mesh for that, and it also shares the textures for the worn goggles.

    Oh I also forgot to mention helmet variations. These are mesh remixes that use the same textures, but have entirely different looks. Basically it ranges from just the metal(a fast helmet looking thing) to the full one, with the full ear pro. You can see the single ear and no ear variations on the bottom of this image. As they share the same textures, they can also easily be modded to have those different styles.
