  • New feature: Player can read notes from containers/corpses
  • Clean some code 


Imagine you have built a lovely house and spent hundreds of days and nights furnishing it. After saving another settlement for Preston Garvey, you feel tired and hungry. Now you are home. Seeing Brahmin steaks you have carefully positioned on plates makes you happy. Then you put all those freshly cooked steaks into your filthy pocket and eat some Bloatfly meat cause it's easier to find in your inventory. Wait... WAIT! Why couldn't you grab that Brahmin steak and eat instead of putting it away? It looks like our Sole Survivor, who can hack Master terminals and robots can't figure out how to eat out of the plate!

This mod solve the problem for our Sole Survivor. It adds EAT/DRINK/USE/EQUIP buttons that let you grab the item and eat/drink/use/equip in real time. No need to pick it up and open the inventory. With this mod, you can grab some food and eat, grab some chems and get high and grab your shotgun to shoot trespassers in the face!

I am new to the modding and have so much to learn. This is my very first mod and I put a lot of days into making it. Glad to see it finally works as it should.

If you encounter any bug or have some suggestions please let me know.
