FOR BEST RESULTS LOAD WIPAG
AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR LOAD ORDER

Requirements: 
WIPAG Requires Armor and Weapon Keywords Community Resource (AWKCR)
Hard Requirement: WIPAG will not work without this mod.

WIPAG Recommends VIS-G
Soft Requirement: WIPAG will work but the names of armor will not be correctly displayed as intended.  Also, many perk requirements will not show up unless VIS-G is installed correctly.

Mod Configuration Menu
Soft Requirement: Allows you to control all of the hotkeys with the MCM menu.  As an alternative, you can use the in-game toggle switches and a hotkey mod.

Incompatibility:
These are no longer needed when running WIPAG

Buildable Power Armor Frames
Craftable PA Frames and Pieces]
Configurable Power Armor Core Drain

Mods that will not work with WIPAG
As with pretty much any mod that adds new craft-able items to the game that depend on "Vanilla Perks", WIPAG will not work with these perk changing mods.  If a mod significantly changes which perks are available, you will be unable to craft any of these items in-game.

Example: Horizons (A Horizons version is planned for the future)

Power Armor Specialization System
Craft any power armor model as Advanced Power Armor and choose 1 of 6 Unique Specializations:

Recon
Unparalleled speed and mobility. Recon is for scouting and getting around the map quickly. With unfettered access to both Powered Hydraulics (Jump) and Improved Gears (Speed), Recon Specialization is by far the fastest Power Armor in the game. It's light as a feather and as a result, can carry more than most other specializations can. This spec is not designed for fights though due to its low access to defensive plating and damage mods.

Assault
Pure combat specialization. Assault Power Armor is designed to slaughter. With access to some of the highest damage Targeting Matrix as well as a wide variety of other damage boosting mods Assault is the second-highest damage rated Power Armor in the game. Assault also has really good access to defense mods so this is definitely a specialization that can hold its own in any fight.

Heavy Assault
With access to the highest tier defensive mods, Heavy Assault is bar-none the "tankiest" power armor available. This Power Armor Specialization can take a severe beating but is not going to do the damage that Assault can and is the slowest Power Armor of all the specializations. This is the power armor spec to use when you are going into the most difficult situations in the game.

Wastelander
Wastelander Specialization is the jack of all trades type power armor. Great for exploration due to its access to decent run speed mods and its good defense in high radiation environments. It also has decent access to damage buff mods. It's good at a lot of things but definitely not the best at any one thing.

Brawler
Dedicated to unarmed combat the Assault Specialization has the best selection of unarmed mods in the game. No other spec can compare with its access to not only unarmed damage buffs but AOE damage emitters as well. Brawler is the unarmed version of the Assault Spec.

Sniper
Pure offense. Sniper Specialization has access to the coveted 3 second Time Slow on Iron Sights as well as superior Targeting Matrix options allowing large bonuses to damage against specific types of mobs but has very low defense. Sniper also gets good bonuses to speed so it can avoid damage and get into sniping positions quickly. It also has access to some good carry weight options so you can lug that heavy sniper rifle around!

NOTE:  YOU CANNOT MIX SPECIALIZATIONS.  DOING SO WILL GIVE YOU A DEBUFF THAT IS NOT PLEASANT!




Multiple Mod Slots and Tiers

With WIPAG every piece of Advanced Power Armor has multiple mod slots to add mods to and each mod comes in many tiers that you unlock through your play through.  This allows you to start using Advanced PA fairly early but does not make it too overpowered because you will only have access to the lower tier mods early on.

Mods have been distributed through the different slots in a logical and immersive manner and are often "Gated" behind applying certain mods to UNLOCK their access.

Mods have also been distributed according to Specialization.  While all specializations get access to almost all mods, the tier of mods you have access to depends on your specialization.  For example, Sniper has access to higher tier Targeting Matrix while Recon gets access to the higher tier Improved Gears.  This distribution of mods according to Specialization and Tier is what gives each spec its own style of game play.

Note: When you get to endgame each Specialization also has access to its own Legendary mod that will combine several mods into 1 providing a very powerful addition to that specialization.  This endgame mod usually has a toggle switch that allows you to cycle through different options. These mods are still a work in progress.



MCM Menu and Toggle Switches

Control various aspects of your power armor with hotkeys using either in-game craftable switches or the MCM Menu.  Turn off power core ejection with a hotkey so you never accidentally eject your core, turn on and off jump and speed mods, Cycle through night vision modes and much more.  You have complete control over how your Power Armor behaves with the touch of a hotkey.



Immersive, Flexible and Balanced System

While WIPAG is designed around high difficulty mods and provides very strong sets of armor it takes a lot of effort to get to the higher tiers.

WIPAG maintains balance through some "give and take" mechanics.  If you wish to use some of the highest tier mods you will be required to add an item to your PA that essentially "Uses Up" one of your mod slots.  For example, if you want to use the Top Tier Speed Mods you are required to add a Turbo Motor which uses up the "Vent and Hydraulics" mod slot. 

Note: Depending on the specialization you may or may not need to use these additional items to unlock these higher tiers.  For example, Recon gets access to high tier speed without the need for a Turbo Motor.

While you have much more flexibility in designing a set of power armor that suits your needs, to really max out in certain areas requires you to make a sacrifice.  WIPAG's Advanced Power Armor is definitely stronger than vanilla so it is recommended that you use it with other mods that create a more difficult play through.

Craftable Power Armor Frames

You can now craft PA frames, scrap old frames, carry frames with you in your inventory and drop them down in any settlement. The following mods are not needed and will not work with WIPAG.

Buildable Power Armor Frames
Craftable PA Frames and Pieces



Build Your Own Night Vision
This changed in v2.7.2 Read Changelog

With WIPAG 2.x you have access to unparalleled options for Night Vision. You can now choose from a wide range of Night Vision and Thermal Effects as well as choose all your NPC highlighting colors independently. Want Pink Hostile highlights with Blue Friendly and Purple Corpse but everything totally different at night? no problem. This system gives you literally 1000's of Night Vision/Thermal Vision configurations to choose from. This will be available for Darker Nights as well!!
