Version 2.18


ElectroMagnetic Force Bubble Teammate ...

Key Notes:

• Fully Voiced Beeped!

• Sparky can be used with other companions

• Missions available to enhance weaponry and abilities

• Has the very latest in Stealth Field Technology for those sneaky covert mission assignments

• Gains a special ability to Scan for potential Enemies and visually Mark their locations (useful for Survival mode)

• The "Lone Wanderer" perk provides its benefits when travelling with just Sparky (because Sparky is a "Teammate" instead of full "Companion")

• Includes an in-game Holotape "Users Guide" (see its entries for further details about features, missions, and abilities)

• Available very early in the game - after leaving Vault 111, or upon visiting Sanctuary when using an "alternate start" mod - but also automatically scales upwards to the Player Character's current level.

• WARNING: Not compatible with "bad guy" Player Characters; e.g. when allied with Nuka-World Raiders


Install the Sparky Automatron DLC Patch if using the Automatron DLC.  Position it below SparkyEMFB in your "load order" sequence. You can uninstall the patch after completing Sparky's "A Better Zap" quest (which takes you to the General Atomics Factory).


Install using a mod manager, or unpack the mod and copy the .ESP/.ESL and .BA2 files into the game's \DATA folder, then enable the mod.

Position this mod's .ESP/.ESL file to be as low as it will go in your "Load Order" sequence.

ESP/ESL Compatibility:

Saved games that currently use an .ESP mod are not compatible with an .ESL of that same mod. Similarly, saved games that are currently using the .ESL for a mod are not compatible with an .ESP of that same mod. That is a basic game restriction in terms of switching between .ESP and .ESL versions of a mod. There is no "fix" or workaround -- it is inherent in the game's design.

So, to switch from .ESP to .ESL, or from .ESL to .ESP, you must:

1 ) uninstall the mod
2 ) load the current saved game
3 ) create a new saved game (while that mod is not installed)
4 ) install the other download of that mod
5 ) resume play with that newly created saved game

Objects and NPCs provided by the mod will not be there now and must be created once more. Similarly, quests will need to be done again.

Known Issues:

A grenade icon is likely to appear when using the Sparky's Controller - ignore it, just a vanilla game quirk.

Due to the vagaries of Fallout 4's varied terrain, Sparky may sometimes have trouble following along when hindered by obstacles, or may otherwise become confused with regard to "pathing" opportunities. When that occurs, just continue adventuring and Sparky will soon be "unstuck" via special scripting. Alternatively, use Sparky's Controller to issue a Recall command.

Known Conflicts:

This mod requires access to Vault 111. There may or may not be a conflict with a particular "alternate start" mod depending on whether that mod allows or prevents entry.

The initial quest can be prevented from starting, or become stalled part-way through, when using a buggy "quick start" or "alternate start" mod. The quest normally begins a short while after exiting from Vault 111 for the first time. Otherwise, it might (or might not) begin when standing for a few minutes outdoors at the Sanctuary Hills workbench.

Unlimited Companion (Follower) Framework and Amazing Follower Tweaks both have conflicts with Sparky by forcing standard "companion" dialog/command interactions, which can seriously "break" my scripting and Sparky's subsequent behavior. The same holds true for other mods that override NPC behavior to force being a companion. Those kinds of mods can be installed, and used on other NPCs where appropriate -- but *never* use them to "recruit" Sparky, or to manage Sparky, or interact with Sparky, or affect Sparky in any way. Never force Sparky to be managed in any way by some other mod. Instead, always use Sparky's own Controller functions.


This mod may not be reused in part or whole for any purpose other than its original intent. It may not be uploaded to any other web site. Get in touch with me if you wish to discuss things; for example, translation into a non-English language.

Bethesda Softworks - for the original Models and Textures [I merely provided the ingenuity and scripting to bring Sparky "to life"]
