.::Pip-Boy Flashlight by akkalat85::.


| Manual Installation |

Unpackage the .rar file. Inside should be several numbered folders. The directory "fomod\images" contains all the preview images and their associated texture names.

1. Open "00-Core". Inside are 2 folders, "HeadEmit" and "PipboyEmit", that control the position of the 3rd person light source. Place the contents of one of these folders into your data directory.
2. Open "00-Textures". The contents of each folder is subdivided into "pip" (pipboy) and "pa" (power armor). Place the contents of either of these folders into your data directory.
3. Folders "01-20" are distance settings. Only choose one and place the contents into your data directory.
4. Activate Pip-Boy Flashlight.esp

* If you want to use alternate 3rd person animations, place the contents of "00-Optional\3rdAnimations" into your data directory.
* If you want to use optional sound effects, open the "00-Optional\Sounds" folder. Inside is 2 directories labeled "Single" and "Double", in reference to the click sound they make. Place the contents of either of these directories into your data folder.
* If you want to offset the 1st person light source for more prominent shadows, place the contents of "00-Optional\1stLightMesh" into your data directory.
