About this mod

Sydney is a standalone follower who can be assigned to a settlement and tasks. She'll serve you well in combat.

Permissions and credits

Please uninstall all previous versions of this mod and install the new version (1.1.2) as soon as possible. The previous versions were broken. See the version history section for details.

If you use a settlement scrapping mod like Spring Cleaning by Nverjos, you're going to want to install this Spring Cleaning Compatibility Patch by VlitS since installing Sydney resets the Red Rocket Truck Stop settlement to vanilla scrapping capabilities.

Sydney is a barebones follower who can be assigned to a settlement and tasks. She has limited voiced dialogue (sourced from in-game files), but she'll serve you well in combat. She specializes in ranged combat, particularly with automatic weapons.

She works very similarly to my first companion, Leyla, but has a more brash attitude.

Ponytail Hairstykes by Azar v2.0 (You must install this mod before installing Sydney if you want her to have the custom hair)

You can find Sydney behind the Red Rocket Truck Stop. That is, on the other side of the building when arriving from Sanctuary.

To recruit her, simply talk to her and tell her to follow you. You can also dismiss her and move her to one of your settlements where she can work. You may re-hire her to follow you by simply talking to her again and telling her to follow you.

NMM Installation:
Just open it with NMM and enable it.

I made this thanks to a helpful tutorial by Seddon4494 on youtube. It's also thanks to him that I sorted out several game-breaking bugs that were apparent in this mod.

Bugs & Issues
  • When installing with Mod Organizer, it may cause the application to crash. I recommend installing manually in these cases.

Version History
  • Fixed a severe bug where Sydney couldn't exit power armour. She now has a dialogue option to exit a suit if she's in one, just like other companions.
  • Added idle dialogue! She will now occasionally say one-lines or hum while on your adventures.
  • Slightly adjusted her combat effectiveness.
  • Tweaked her faction alignments.
  • (1.1.1) Improved her AI; she should follow you into elevators and vertibirds now (among other improvements).
  • (1.1.2) Removed requirements for THBrows needed. It was causing failure for some people.
