This is a compatibility and balance patch between Horizon by Zawinul and The Mercenary - Pack by L0rd0fWar. There is another mercenary patch for horizon from ThaMan but I decided to release this one because it changes other things besides armor values and modifications, also I´ve been sitting on this patch for a while and finally decide to release it before I forget about it.

What this patch does:

  • Changes all armor and accessories values from The mercenary pack to Horizon standards like: price, DR, Weight etc.
  • Removes clothes S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes and adds the new Horizon´s Keywords and modifications like: Linings, Clothes Utility, Armor size, Mask Filter, Mask Addons, Eyewear Utilities, Horizon´s backpack carry weight modifications, Hide Slots, Ballistic Weave etc.
  • Changes the crafting requirements like perks and materials from all armors and accessories so now you need horizon´s new alloys and components to craft some of them, you can´t craft B-90 armor so easily now.
  • Changed armor modifications from original Mercenary pack so they are not so over power or unbalance with Horizon.
  • Adds tags to books, misc items etc. and new icons to clothing and armor. Tweak gas masks Instance name from Horizon Armorsmith Patch.
  • Rebalance Level List so now Gunners and some raiders will take more levels to use their best armors, integrate new headgear pieces into the level lists, more details below.
  • Armors and accessories crafting recipes are sorted into new categories in the Armorsmith Workbench for easier access, the new categories are: ARMOR, CLOTHES, ACCESSORIES, MISC and SLOT SWAP.
  • Added new "Slot Swap" into the Armorsmith Workbench categories so you can change on which slot you want to wear your hats, I made this so it is easier to combine different headgear.
  • Tweak some nif files from original mercenary pack(hat, gas mask and light armor) to avoid clipping with other pieces of gear and hairs.
  • Change the dead NCR Ranger loot, can you find him?.
  • Added 9 new headwear mashups of helmets, hats, balaclava, gas mask, etc. made by myself using resources from both Vanilla and the mercenary pack. They are integrated into the level lists so enemies will wear them, and they are craftable on the Armorsmith Workbench. I got the inspiration from Oh Deer Videos
