If you told me I would have created an armor for Fallout 4 at the beginning of June I would not have believed it. I was just taking a 'break' from working on my other mod and wanted to experiment trying to get a simple wristband in the game. With how easy outfit studio made it I kinda went off the rails and spent the last 2 1/2 weeks making a full armor suit instead. I always liked the way a specific armor suit from the game Black Ops 3 looked and decided to make a similar one I could use in Fallout 4. So as a result I've created my first armor for Fallout 4 and pretty happy with the results. I do want to give a shout-out to the creator of bodyslide/outfit studio Ousnius. If it wasn't for their awesome tool I wouldn't have been able to get my models into the game so easily and quickly and been able to deliver it to you all within a matter of a few weeks from when I first started the armor.




The Geist suit is heavily inspired from a dlc supply drop armor suit in the game Black Ops 3. I really liked the colors and design and thought it would be a cool armor to try and make for Fallout 4 and my character. The suit features several layers of clothing and even a booster pack on the back. While the booster pack will not visually give you any advantage when this suit is worn you will gain +1 agility so you have increased Action points as a bonus. The suit also contains some resistance to energy and electrical based damage. The armor also contains several options to upgrade it to make it better.

The Armor uses the CBBE Curvy body as a default. If you want a different shape the bodyslide sliders are included in the download of the mod for you to customize. This armor mod is only for the female body (obviously). All of the textures are mostly 2k with a few 1k ones.

To obtain this armor there are 3 ways you can obtain it:
  • Using the console command to search for it: "help Geist 4"
  • With this nifty mod called esp explorer menu you can search for the esp and directly add the armor to your inventory (you don't need this for my mod but really useful when you just want items)
  • Craft the armor suit from the chemistry lab

As a bonus the armor suit contains several color palettes to choose from. At the Armor Workbench you will see a color option where you can choose the option you want. I do want to point out the Purple Mystical color set will require double the resources. It is the most rare of all the choices (becasue I wanted it to be).






Q: Can I make a video/review about your mod?
A: Yes! I will never have any issues about anyone wanting to review my mods.

Q: Can I take content from your armor and alter/reupload it?
A: Please talk to me first if there is something you want to alter and re-upload on the nexus that requires one of the original files in this mod. I don't really want 52 different variants of my armor all over the place. If you are looking to make patches and/or translations to make it work for other mods those are always ok to create.

Q: Help! Some of the textures on the armor like the bullets and skull emblem seem to be dull. What is wrong?
A: This is a really simple fix which is not actually a bug from my armor but Fallout 4 itself. Some reason Fallout 4 has a bug where the cubemaps will not load in. So you may have to start the game again (I've had to restart it 3 times one time) to get the cubemaps to work correctly.

Q: I don't really like your armor's design/model/textures Can you change these?
A: Sorry to disappoint you on the quality in one aspect or another but I made everything from scratch. I will not and cannot use copyright material so everything on this armor was made strictly by me. I am personally happy with the way the armor suit looks. If you have a better design or armor want made the tools and resources are out there for you to create what you desire if you look for them.

Q: The armor is invisible or has pink textures, how do I fix this?
A: Make sure to follow this guide: Here

Q: Will you have a xbox version?
A: I do not have any plans for my mods to be on xbox really. Usually the file sizes are very large and I don't personally play Fallout 4 on xbox. I primarily play games like Fallout and Elder Scrolls on pc and as a result support pc mods as that is where I play with them and can test them. I am not saying never but as of now I just want my mods on Nexus. Please do not port them to Bethesda.net, if I decide for a xbox version I will do the porting work myself.


Bugs
Known Bug: There will be slight clipping or weird deformation on the armor when your character goes into more extreme poses. I did the best I could with paint weights to make the armor suit be as clean as possible for most normal positions.

Special Thanks:
Thank you to all who provide tools, resources, and tutorials. They really do make a big difference because this armor is a result of that. So whenever you are creating a tutorial it really does make a big difference in helping others make mods.





So far between Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition I've released 5 mods now. I am sure some have come to this mod page wondering when my next Gun mod for Fallout 4 is coming. Since I released my ACR mod last year I pretty much started work on the next gun last October and have slowly been chipping away at it. Between that time I've made several other mods but I know most are eager for that one. I still have a lot of work left to do for it but for those wondering yes I am still working on it.

Now onto the outfits. This one was kinda out of the blue but now that I know how to make them properly for Fallout 4 I already have in mind what I would like to make for the my next 2. I don't have any definite timetable when they will be worked on and released since I really need to focus on the gun mod thats been in development for almost a year now lol. I do look forward to making the next Armor though, it should be quite fun and something I would like to see in Fallout 4.

Until next time enjoy and see you hopefully not too far away from now ....
