About this mod

This mod is aimed at 'Room Scale' players who enjoy using a real chair while their character uses furniture pieces in game. It adds a 'L.A Noire: VR Case Files' inspired approach to using furniture pieces in Fallout 4 VR.

Do you hate how Fallout 4 VR handles furniture in game? How when you choose to sit on a chair your characters height does not change so you feel like you are 'stood in the chair' rather than 'sitting on the chair'?! This mod allows you place a real life chair in your VR play space and then use it when you choose to sit on in-game furniture items such as chairs, benches, sofas & stools.

Feel more immersed in the rich world around you,
sit at the noodle bar in Diamond Cities market area or take a seat in one of the many booths found in cafes & bars and watch the world go by - all while using your real life chair!

This mod is not aimed at players who remain seated at all times.


A simplfied explanation of what the mod does:


When a user selects a furniture piece to sit on:
  • It stops the sitting down animation
  • Fades the screen to black
  • A message box is displayed asking the player to be seated and to then press the trigger button to continue.
  • Once the trigger button is pressed the sitting down animation continues, the
  • screen fades from black back to the game at which point your character
    will be seated, oriented
    and positioned correctly on the furniture piece in-line with your real life self.

When a user exits a furniture piece:
  • It stops the standing up animation
  • Fades the screen to black
  • A message box is displayed asking the player to stand & return to the
  • center of their play space and then press the trigger button to
    continue

  • Once the trigger button is pressed the standing up animation continues and the screen fades from
  • black back to the game with the player positioned next to the furniture
    piece.




Installation:

Requirements:

F4SEVR: https://f4se.silverlock.org/
Smooth Movement VR: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/44768

It is advisable to create a save where your character is not seated prior to installing this mod and to backup any save games so you can cleanly return to a previous state should you decide that this mod is not for you.

  1. Install both F4SEVR & Smooth Movement VR (both are required)
  2. install Be Seated using a mod manager or manually - the choice is yours!
  3. Sit on a chair and then open the BeSeatedHolotape from your Pipboy menu.
  4. Configure the 'fSneakEnterThreshold' setting to match what you use in your .ini file.
  5. Configure your desired chair & bench height (or leave it as the default).
  6. Close the holotape
  7. Sit on a stool and then open the BeSeatedHolotape from your Pipboy menu.
  8. Configure your desired stool sitting height (or leave it as the default).
  9. Close the holotape
  10. Save your game to keep your settings.
  11. The above settings can be changed at anytime via the BeSeatedHolotape.

Updating from V1.0:

  1. Remove version 1.0 and load the game.
  2. Create a new save.
  3. Clean your save with Fallrim Tools Resaver (optional).
  4. Install version 2.0 as described above.

Compatibility:

This mod now requires both
F4SEVR & Smooth Movement VR in order to make changes to the players height. I have left version 1.0 in the downloads section for users who do not use those mods.
