Name: No Companion Junk Comments
Version: 1.02
Author: Mystyk (star-mystyk)


Note: If you find any of my mods on Beth.net they have been stolen. Please report them. I have not uploaded anything there yet.


Description:
============
No longer will companions gripe about all that crap you collect. The latest version now includes all crafting stuff, even pre-war.
But wait, there's more.
Other users in the comments section requested other things be included, so, after finally figuring it out, it is done.
The risk of conflicts with other companion-related mods has increased, due to a different process this time. Please let me know if there's any strange stuff with another mod and I'll check it out. Usually it's then just a case of altering load order.

This is what the mod now consists of. More comments gone such as:
- Looting corpses
- Looting pre-war objects (alarm clocks, antique globes, pre-war money, etc)
- Looting junk (mops, tin cans, empty bottles, etc)
- Looting epic items (I think that's legendary items)
- Reading skill books
- Discharging your weapons outside of combat
- Using the workbenches (modding weapons and armor and the chem station)
- Taking rad damage
- Developing rad poisoning
- Being over-encumbered

It doesn't affect affinity even though they don't comment anymore. If you use Visible Companion Affinity you can see that each time you loot a body, pick up a skill book or swim in radiation, etc their affinity still changes.


DLC Companions Now Included:
=================================
No version change, just an extra file. There might be a few people out there who don't have the DLC's.

The mod covers Gage, Old Longfellow, Ada and any automatrons with a personality.
Each DLC companion has been mostly done identical to the main game's companions with a few extra things included:

Ada - Ada is a robot. IMO robots shouldn't be imposing their morals on you because they don't have any. Ada, and any automatrons with a personality chip, should no longer whine about your chem use or drinking habits, as well as all the other things covered by the vanilla companions.

Gage - A raider who dislikes chems and drinking and goes out of his way to put you down for using them. You'll still get the "disliked that" notifications but now no condescending attitude about it.

Old Longfellow - Personally I've never used him but, looking at his dialogue and he seems alright, not too opinionated and patronising. Nothing extra was changed for him. Just the usual junk, rads, looting.

Installation:
============
For the latest install instructions:
http://wiki.tesnexus.com/index.php/Fallout_4_Mod_Installation
I don't use mod managers, I prefer manually installing mods, so I can't help with that.

To update to the latest version of this mod simply overwrite the previous esp file.

Under Main File are two files, now. Only select one as both edit the same vanilla companions, but the second one also includes Ada, Longfellow and Gage. Automatron, Nuka World and Far Harbor are required for the second file.


Conflicts:
==========
Deacon Outfit Change Change
My mod needs to load before this one.

I'm unsure about Codsworth and Automatron. I haven't tested that yet. I rarely use him, and I have a mod to stop Automatron auto-starting before level 50 so it may be a while, if ever, that I test him. Perhaps someone else can let me know if there are any issues with him, specifically with upgrading him.


Notes:
=======
If you prefer to save an esp slot there's an even easier way to mute annoying lines by NPC's. FO4 Voice File Reference Tool allows you to search for the offending line and generate an empty audio file. Unfortunately it doesn't support DLC's.
