About this mod

Stops Dogmeat from opening doors. Because really Bethesda, come on...

Permissions and credits
Changelogs
[NEW - README FIRST]: SEE THE TOPMOST STICKIED POST BEFORE USING THIS MOD, AS IT CAN CAUSE ISSUES WITH THE QUEST "REUNIONS"!


ALSO, PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION AND THE BELOW "FAQ" SECTION BEFORE POSTING!




Description:


All this does is checks a single flag on Dogmeat's race (DogmeatRace) to prevent him from opening doors (the flag is named "Can't Open Doors").


Why?

Because this has always annoyed the hell outta me, and I can't count the number of times he's gotten me caught sneaking because he decided it was "sandbox time" and opened the door to the room I was hiding inside.

It's also not someone a dog should reasonably be able to do so effortlessly, regardless of the type of door or door knob/latch employed (he will even open sliding jail cell door ffs lol).


FAQ:

Q:
 Will you (please) port this mod to the consoles?
A: If there is enough interest, I will consider trying to do so. Please ask nicely, though, and do not "demand" that I port it (as is so often the case from what I've seen...).

Q: What Dogmeat retexture are you using in that screenshot?
A: It's from the mod Siberian Husky - Dogmeat, but with an blue eye retexture I made personally.

Q: Will you please make X mod?
A: I generally don't take requests - I mod because I want to use the things I make, but you can still ask. However, if it's an idea I like, it's possible I may do it in the future.

Q: Can you change X about this mod?
A: Probably not. For one, this mod does so little. Additionally, like I said above, I generally only mod content I want to use myself.


Potential/Known Bugs:

- It is likely that Bethesda did not prevent Dogmeat from opening doors due to his "Look, look I found something!" behavior. The worst that can possibly
  result from this would be him walking into a wall for a few seconds, but since the behavior seems to have a "timeout" if he cannot get to the object, it
  shouldn't really be a big deal.


Compatibility:

This mod is most likely incompatible with any other mod that edits Dogmeat's *race*, but should be fully compatible with any mod that edits Dogmeat himself (the actor).

For example, the mod Everyone's Best Friend would be fully compatible with this mod as it does not edit Dogmeat's race, just the "actor" (this should be true of most Dogmeat mods as well).

You should still probably load this mod below any other mod that edits Dogmeat, though.


Final Notes:

I still cannot figure out how to stop him from walking in front of you and at where your crosshair is pointed. I have a sinking suspicion it's controlled by his behavior file, and I'm not willing to read through the 1,000,000 lines of XML "spaghetti code" to try and remove that *feature*.

If I ever figure this out, you can bet I will be making a mod to remove it, though - it's been annoying me to no end since like, day one...
