Short Description

Have you ever wished that Cricket was a sexy-hot as she is drop-dead crazy "fixing" her hot-crazy matrix in the "Yes-Please" direction?  Have you ever wondered how the traveling merchants and their caravan guards manage to survive the Commonwealth with the worst gear in the game?  Does it bother you that the caravan guards are practically twins (or at least cousins) with the other merchants' guards?

If you answered YES to any of those questions than this mod and the others in the series may be just what you need even if you didn't realize until just now that you needed it.


Description

I have been inspired by the many mods that seek to enhance the appearance of companions and named NPCs.  But most focus on the face/head and stop short of their outfit & gear.  I wanted to alter the complete look of named NPCs and decided to start with the four traveling merchants (Cricket, Lucas, Weathers, and Carla).  With a little research I discovered that the pair of caravan guards for 3 of the 4 merchants were actually unique.  So I decided that I would create a mod for each merchant and their guards, plus Carla (where are her guards?, maybe I'll give her some).  And I wanted the cosmetics to trump Level-Lists or the ultra-bland low level gear.  This may cause game balance issues if you tend to kill all the traveling merchants.

This first Merchant & Guards mod alters the appearance of the traveling merchant Cricket and both her caravan guards.  In addition to face, it also outfits them in new gear to make this trio of merchants stand apart from the others and puts my interpretation of Cricket at the forefront both in her look but also how her guards match her "style".  Small tweaks were also done to enhance her guards stats including slightly better Weapon LL and giving each a name.

Alternate Versions


Alternate - No LMCC

There is an alternate version that removes LooksMenu Customization Compendium as required.  The images for the new faces/hair are at the end of the images list.  Note that I do not know how to set Requirements different for the main and alternate so please ignore the NMM download saying LMCC is required.

Vanilla-Almost

There is an alternate version that removes all requirements except Ponytail Hairstyles by Azar.  The images for the new faces/hair are at the end of the images list.  Note that I do not know how to set Requirements different for the main and alternate so please ignore the NMM download saying various mods are required.

Screenshots were taken with two texture replacer mods but they are not needed for this mod to function.  You will get Cait's Corset and Synth Uniform on your NPCs with vanilla colors (or any replacers you personally use).  The two mods I used for screenshots are listed below in Recommended section.

Vanilla (Pure Vanilla)

There is an alternate version that removes ALL requirements.  This version is PURE Vanilla, Mmmm Mmmm tasty.  No new images uploaded. Difference between this and Vanilla-Almost is the hairstyles on each NPC (but not hair color) and that is it. Note that I do not know how to set Requirements different for the main and alternate so please ignore the NMM download saying various mods are required.


Recommended

Bodyslide & Outfit Studio - http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/25/?

To set the Nanosuit & Toxic Raider to your preferred body type for both Cricket and her female guard.
Can also use to choose alternate Nanosuit meshes.  Note:  Only Bodyslide one pair of Nanosuit meshes at a time (one accessories and one suit).

FOFW ReDUX - 
http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/9363/?
This great mod reworks a large list of named NPCs in a fashion I describe as "Vanilla Enhanced".  I'm using it personally as the core overhaul
for my NPC appearances with the exception of certain specific NPCs such as Cricket (in this mod). 

If you are using FOFW ReDUX and my mod, simply put my mod after FOFW ReDUX in your load order.  My mod will ONLY overwrite
Cricket and leave the other enhanced NPCs intact.

For the Vanilla-Almost (or Vanilla) version try these two textures for the "Underarmors" on the NPCs.

Hollowann's Harley Quinn Corset

RevelationWH's S.C.R. Special Courser Reinforcement Uniform



Installation

Use NMM.  Or download manually and copy esp into data folder.


Quirks

If you install into a current game you may need to "reset" an NPC to make sure the appearance and gear is displayed.  A way to do this is the following:
  • open console
  • click on NPC to get ID
  • ID.disable
  • ID.enable
  • ID.moveto player
  • exit console


Plans
  • Develop one mod each for the other three traveling merchants and their guards.  Perhaps adding guards to Carla as well.
