    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.

      Do you see a npc marker of sorts. at all ? all if the target is moving so will the npc marker .. also you have roughly 1-2 days to get it done or you dont get as much payment, been awhile since I did a bounty for them ...

    So what do you do when a dagger paralyzes you, and your companion kills the BH. I am stuck paralyzed and ... that's it. Nothing I can do about it.

    Nice mod. But I will not use it in my setup for now.

    Hope it gets fleshed out in the future.

    Hey, I'm trying to talk to Gardener but he doesn't say anything. None of the bounty hunters do. Not even a grunt or anything.

    getting a really weird bug last few days.

    when a hunter comes after me while im in workshop and i get knocked out or 1 shotted. when i go down my computer ACTUALLY shuts off as if i did a power down procedure. i mean overall i think its funny that it happens but also not funny as i can lose lots of unsaved building progress lol.

    any idea whats causing it? i cant get a log as far as ive seen since it powers me off.

      That;s just rude , interrupting you in building mode, but hey if you have scrap everything, you can hit the insert button, and scrap them as well , I've scrapped a couple whilst in build mods that way, the armor n such goes to workshop

    This is so broken, restarted and my Level 13 and I'm getting multiple skulled teams (5x) after me, and I've been a pacifist. When they find me, it is a one shot death while I can use a nuke mine and barely wound them.
    Balance is way off in favor of the bounty hunters. The last team hit me with a throwing knife and I was paralyed, poisoned then dead before i saw them.

      They're bounty hunters, your not meant to always be able to see then , its their thing to try and catch you off guard , and they're meant to be harder or stronger , so as to be challenging for player ...
      And its not broken if they coming after you , but there are still a few little bugs with it sometimes that can happen more than one group catches up to , its all a timing thing too , as to how many get to you ..

      You can be a pacifist and still have them come after you for building in your settlement alone that's an expansion threat bounty, if you use the perk to hold up raiders that's a hold up bounty lol.
      So it's like this spoilery thing here but not really spoiler I guess.

      1. Settlement building bounty aka expansion = threat to raiders so they put a .... Bounty for you.
      2. Hold up bounty = well you tried to not kill but you still basically made them feel threatened so Bounty for you lol.
      3. Murder Bounty= you killed raiders and their friends put a bounty on your head aka Bounty for you.
      4. Stealing? idk I don't really steal.
      5. That's the bounties you do for their faction once you earn "respect" though that seems off since you are pretty much helping the people who attack you all the time.
      6.?

      The respect thing is stupid in my opinion because you have to let them attack you and paralyze you at which point they will rob you and that's how you get respect from their boss. Past the silly of it is the fact they can kill you pretty easily even in an x01. I had to reload lots of times trying to let them hit me and for me to survive. You are supposed to be able to get your money back but that bit seems to not work. I like the mod though.

      Stealing earns you a bounty and pick-pocketing earns you a separate one. For example, if you knock down a bounty hunter or sneak up on an NPC and place a live grenade in their inventory, they hunt you down for pick-pocketing.

      I understand the idea, but every encounter has been against multiple teams. The spawn rate and level is really off for some reason on my new play though. Every game day I get multiple skulled teams (9-15 total bounty hunters) working together in an encounter is way too much, and they are not a challenge but instant game over if I get spotted (which I do as they are levels way above me). Probably some weird snafu with my setup (BTW as of the time I disabled this mod I was level 14, 2 settlements and barely got to Diamond City with less then 30 places discovered).

      There is a setting in the Bounties For You holotape which you can choose "less bounties" which should lower the instances of the hunters coming for you. I've only ever used the "more bounties" option which seems to work for me. You could also disable the the mod until you are a higher level.

      I use AFT and have three companions with me at a time and we destroy these hunters in a fairly short time. I haven't increased the hunters damage dealt or damage resistance settings in my current playthrough which does make them more difficult to kill.

      Another thing you can do is open the mod in FO4Edit and change whatever you want in Bounties For You. For example: you can remove certain weapons from spawning in their inventory or lessen their health or damage resistance and even decrease their movement speed from 110% to something like 80% to nerf their superhero abilities.

      Hope this helps.

      I tried the less bounty option, and I got bigger groups. And on top of it the paralysis kills me. It is a nice idea but still has quite a bit of bug-fixes / balancing. Since it's dead now, just going to remove it.

    So when you get a bounty, does your target just run in a straight line from Point A to Point B or do they actually follow roads and such?

    So I've had your mod for a long time, several playthroughs, so many dead bounty hunters in my wake. Today on a new playthrough, I decided to upgrade a double barrel shotgun I found (I normally drop or sell them immediately) and saw these "Epic Receivers" that needed something called tungstronium and shotgun stagger parts so I was like wtf. I google searched the shotgun part, stagger, etc, then finally got this page as the one and only result for "tungstronium". Just thought that amusing cause I was scratching my head wondering where the hell these upgrades came from, lol. Always love finding new stuff and now I have more reason to advance in rank. :)

    Btw, is this mod compatible with the couple of drumlin diner mods that board up the windows and change the layout?

    Also, kudos for taking the reigns from the excellent NV bounties mods and adding such a fun element to the game!

    Hi, I started a few weeks ago a new playthrough with this mod installed, and at first it was great because the Bounty Hunters didn't come after me that often but it was often enough that I had to always have an eye on my back. But now things are getting a bit out of hand. Ever since they started chasing after me because of "expansion" rather than murdering people, they seem to come more and more often every time. So I have two questions

    1-Is there a way of "reducing the heat"? If I allow them to rob me and then start getting bounties for them, would that help out in any way?
    2-If there's no way of "befriending" them... is there a way to kill them for good? If I kill Gardener, will that stop the organization?

    And by the way, I know I could use the tape to do all this, but I don't want to simply "turn off" the mod, I'm looking for an in game sort of solution.

      Not sure this is the answer your looking for , but when you able to start doing bounties for them, it does or sposed to earn trust with them, like in the message, when you get disarmed by then taking your weapon, and your able to get it back, that trust is broken, but doing bounties for them earn a kinda trust thing with them ...
      As for killing the gardener not sure, never done it myself , because if you kill him you can get anymore bounties then could you ? ,
REPORT BUG
