    Seems the mod is doing ok, so I guess I will answer common questions.

    1, How do you earn the Gardeners respect to do bounties?
    -It's actually really simple and obvious, figure it out.
    2, Does this work with _____ mod?
    - it should. nothing has really been edited. All is new and standalone. That being said, mods that make you friends with the gunners are going to make the hunters friendly ALL the time. A few console commands that remove you from that faction AND makes you neutral to them will be required.
    3, Can you explain how every aspect and mechanic of the mod works?
    - No, what would be the fun of a mod that you know everything about? this is not a weapon, armor or faction mod. it's like this to be an experience mod. like a game should be.
    4, can I stalk you and post on your mod page and find you on discord? can I ask you a bunch of questions and tell you about my experiences?
    - yes, you can. just don't show up at my house. I don't know what this thing is where people think that a modder is somehow some untouchable person that has no time to deal with people. I don't do this for money. please tell me your epic story with my mod. that's the best payment I can get.

    there are many spoilers below this line. read at your own risk.

    i give my permission for this mod to be edited and re-uploaded by anyone as long as they follow the following conditions:

    -add the credits that I have posted. the music is covered under creative commons and requires credits. don't forget about me too.
    -do not add this to any console system unless you are positive that this mod will not irreversibly mess up there saves without the use of console commands.

    i not sure when i can keep working on this so i don't think it would be fair for me to hold on to this if there are others out there that can improve/fix issues.

    Nice concept but it should definitely have a version which don't add weapons and armors and just use vanilla assets, like using Mercenary level list instead of its own bounty hunter level list.. (plus the fact that in this case other mods which add to those vanilla level lists like "the mercenary pack" would add to it and work like a charm.)

    Does this mod conflict with any others? After 30 hours of testing, this mod is usually the one that causes random CTDs a lot.. It happens when you fast travel during the time they are deployed and once you reach the location you traveled to, a few seconds later the CTD will happen. They appeared in diamond city lol.. We were fighting until this retard guard decides to walk in front of me and the bounty hunter leader fighting in melee, accident killing the guard. So I reloaded the save and waited a bit to see if they reappeared again. They didn't, so I fast traveled to bunker hill, upon exiting to advance the quest "Boston after Dark" I randomly CTD just walking down the street. Reopened the game, same direction once again but I CTD further ahead. I did saves before the crashes happened. Then I saw the same bounty hunter leader I fought earlier at DC (was alone this time though). I decided to tick the mod off and re-run that whole section again, not once did I CTD.

    Besides that... The mod runs completely fine, never had a ctd during combat.. Hate having to turn this mod off but its the source of CTDs for me :/. So much fun fighting these guys + NPC Travel making it a f***ing warzone outside lol.

      I dont know why your having ctd's like you are but I have used this mod for the longest time, tho I haven't played for for weeks now , I do not have ct'd issues with it ..
      But it could be a partial cause along with not playing nice another mod ..

      I am going to attempt another playthrough without using Fast Travel a lot like I did in this instance. I do have a feeling NPC Travel might be the case but we will see xD. Its just randomly happens not even in combat. I have had hunters attack me while in a big battle with mutants or other enemies, works completely fine no ctd.

      I don't even use a lot of mods either. max of 40. 4 major stuff like sim settlements, unique npc creatures, vivid weathers, and armorkeywords. rest are looksmenu stuff, armor sets by niero and minor stuff like dismemberment. Do you remember where you put this on your load order? maybe that could be a cause?

    *DELETE THIS POST DO NOT READ IT WILL WASTE YOUR TIME*
    All of these tracking mod where it spawns people to chase you are useless because they never catch up to you unless you are sleeping or in a town. All of the people chasing me with this mod either die from vanilla spawns or get insta killed by town guards, you should make their movement speed higher so they actually catch up to you.

    EDIT: Jaderiver is right, They do catch up and i was getting it mixed up, I also have no place is safe and skk combat stalkers and those guys fro those mods were the ones that never caught up and were getting insta killed by the guards n stuff.

    Do you think you could make another mod as well, in where instead of people putting bounties on your head, you can be a bounty hunter, and collect bounties? Please?

      >_< You can already do this in this , after you've gotten the gardener's respect , he will let you do or offer you bounties starting at rank 1 you have to buy them but still a reward for doing them tho once you get to rank 3 bounties not sure the mod author continued with that ..

      One of my favorite must have mods but not really great for bounty hunter play through in my opinion. The bounty hunter system on this is best if you play as a bad guy, ( if that) these guys are pretty much the raiders muscle as they will be attacking you for just building your settlement ( expansion bounty), attacking raiders etc so getting bounties from Gardner is like working for the guy who tries to kill you everyday. Plus to earn his respect you have to let them attack you which can simply be a 1 shot kill on you since they are a bit OP so you'll need to reload a lot depending on your luck hoping they don't kill you but stun you. The system I guess was to reward players for not quit or reloading if you lose to them problem is they seem to kill more often than not.

      There are other bounty mods that you actually do bounties sadly not as fleshed out ( I'm trying to not name them here), I use this for the watch my back feel lol.

      Yeah, I'm just looking for a regular old fashion
      Merc takes a bounty, without involving raiders, in fact raiders should make up the basis of the bounty that I try to collect on.
      I also would like for it to be easy and spontaneous, such as you go to a new building that holds bounties you can take that replenish.
      That way I can feel like a merc, amybe add a script that makes people approach you while your sitting down in the building, trying to recruit you for a merc job.
      You would make hotfiles for sure
      In fact if anybody decides to do this, let me know!

      @ Adam, if the seem a bit op its because they're mean to be hard, the mod author wanted to make them challenging for player, not bullet sponges is all ...
      If they seem to hard , simply switch to an easier mode ...

    Hello,
    THis is my first time using the mod, and I found 'Gardener' dead. He had been killed at Drumlin's Diner.
    I would have thought he would be set to essential ??
    Anyway, NOW WHAT?

      ..
      Have you read the description ?
      You can / craft get a holo tape , you can use like a reset which might help with the gardener coming back to life ..
      Updating:
      the holotape comes with a "stop mod function". if I make changes to the mods scripts, quests, and some other stuff you will need to run the stopper
      function, save, then update before running the restart function. your items, and standing with the bounty hunters will be the same but during that time nothing will happen until you run the restart function. this will allow me to edit things that are normally stored in your save files like running
      scripts and quest status.

      If you do not run the stop function and update, Jimmy. the information stored in your save may not work with the updated new information which can cause the mod to fail in a lot of areas. If this happens you will have to uninstall the mod and make a save after. then reinstall the mod but all the work you have done (and mod assets) will be lost. forever. I guess until you earn them back.

      Craft a holo tape at the chem station and go thru it it has info on how to's

      OK and thanks for the response.
      I have uninstalled the mod (using MO2) cleaned the save file and restarted with a 'clean save'. I am going to re-install the mod. If I should find 'Gardener' dead again, I will try to 'resurrect' him. if that fails, I will use the holotape (yes, I had crafted one before,) but was unaware that it would fix this kind of thing.
      Will work through it...

      Thanks again !!

      Lol your game must be brutal if he got killed. That aside you should have tried resurrect console command unless of course you are playing hardcore in which case you'd of course need to reactivate that first using a mod.

      Yeah, it is as brutal as I can make it. I have it cranked WAY UP. To compensate or attempt to balance it , I use RetroDaddy's 'cheat' chests. I must still be careful and i still die a lot if I am not.

    I really love the concept of this for my Fallout 4 VR run, the battles are tough as hell but I've got a problem - when you get stunned and they take your caps, it never gets unstunned. Would love a fix, workaround, or another way to get respect so I can start taking my own bounties. This adds the spice of life the wasteland could use -- but after 80 levels of REALLY having to be vicious to avoid getting stunned, I could use a break! Thanks again for the great work.

    HOWDY! I am really enjoying this mod and like the idea of being 'hunted'.
    I would like to see you take it up a notch for those of us who are just *too good* … like me! I am your worst nightmare !!
    Bounties-smounties! who cares... bring 'em on! These are just packs of Wussies !!!
    Seriously, it would take an army to bring me down! Ain't been knocked out, ain't been robbed. Call me the Breeze !

      Use the holo tape to either make them stronger or give them more health to suit your play style , I cant remember which it does , I play on extra hard mode as it is , so they're tough enough for atm ...

      My first post was tongue in cheek of course!Jaderiver, I like the suggestion ! (didn't think of it, really)
      I really like this mod and the way the bounty hunters 'hunt' is great ...
      This mod has great potential for a 'story arch' expansion ...
      One story line could involve an onslaught by the Gunners precipitated by the player character killing their leader as retribution for a massacre on a settlement … OR .... The player character gets word of an impeding full scale attack on Diamond City by fining a communique on an important bounty hunter.and goes on to Gunners Plaza to kill the Gunners and their leader. While all of the setup could be done by written notes, the actual 'battles' would require NPC spawn/setup etc. The mod would be more awesome with an overarching story track.
      P.s. I agree with 'Destroyer5' .... eliminating Gardener's 'best' should earn respect.
      With all that said, I would not change much that has already been done, just logically expand it.
