Settlement Medic Bot

Version 2.1


Description:

Mr. Medic robot which provides medical aid within a Settlement.


Key Features:

• Automatic Operation
• Limited to One per Settlement
• Provides medical aid where needed for the Settlement
• Provides a workshop rating Happiness Bonus (25)
• Activate a Station Pod to modify global default settings
• Created using a WorkShop within STRUCTURES>MISCELLANEOUS

This mod provides a "lore friendly" approach for automatically providing medical aid for treating injuries within a Settlement by enabling you to assign that task to a RobCo Mister Medic Protectron robot.  Simply place the 'bot in a central area, and then feel free to resume your adventures. The robot will perform a sensor scan periodically to find potential patients in the surrounding area whenever you revisit that settlement, and returns to its station pod when those treatments are completed.

Activate a Station Pod to modify the default settings that apply to all Mister Medic robots. Humans and your Teammates are healed automatically; others can be selectively enabled for healing by interacting with a Station Pod.

There is a brief initial mission / quest.  It normally begins after escaping from Vault 111.  For those using an "alternate start" mod, it begins while outdoors in the Commonwealth (the main game area) -- or try visiting Sanctuary Hills and stand near the Workshop for a few minutes.


Medical Treatment:

Mr. Medic's medical treatments restore the following: Health, Endurance Condition, Right Attack Condition, Left Attack Condition, Right Mobility Condition, Left Mobility Condition, Brain Condition, Perception Condition, and Rads (radiation poisoning).

Mr. Medic can provide medical aid to the following inhabitants of a settlement as long as they are not "hostile" to the player character.  Humans and Player Teammates are healed automatically; the others can be selectively enabled for healing by interacting with a Station Pod. Settings are global and apply to all Mr. Medic robots.

• Humans
• Robots
• Animals
• Creatures
• Super Mutants
• non-Feral Ghouls

Note: robots are only repaired if they are not yet Destroyed / Dead.


How To Build:

Mister Medic is placed in a settlement by using a WorkShop to build a Station Pod. The station pod can be found in the STRUCTURES>MISCELLANEOUS section of the WorkShop's building menu when an initial quest ("Need a Bandaid?") is completed. The quest appears shortly after leaving Vault 111 for normal play, or when outdoors in the Commonwealth when using an "alternate start" mod. If the quest does not appear when expected, then double-check to confirm that this mod has been enabled.

When opening a workshop to build something, you initially see the user interface positioned at a wooden building with "Structures" as a label above it. Go upwards one row from there, and then go over to the right along that row until you see "Structures>Miscellaneous" as a label; in the base game that label is above a bloodied super mutant pole but may be something different depending on the mods you installed. Now go up one row from there. Everything you then see horizontally in that row is the "Structures>Miscellaneous" subcategory. In that row will be the Mister Medic Station Pod; perhaps as the very first item.

It is best to position the Station Pod on the ground in the central area of a settlement in such a way that Mister Medic will have easy access to places within the settlement's boundaries.

If you are not able to find the"Structures>Miscellaneous" subcategory, then you installed a mod that alters the basic construction categories of the game. In which case you may not be able to build the Station Pod, and hence will not be able to use this mod -- if you are lucky, the conflicting mod may have simply rearranged items, with the Station Pod now residing elsewhere in some other category or subcategory instead of where it was intended to be.


Installation:

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.


Install ESP or ESL?

If you are reaching the maximum allowed number of .ESP installs, and want to install more mods, then install the .ESL versions of those new mods ...

Back-in-the-day, many players were reaching the maximum number of allowed .ESP installs, so Bethesda introduced a way to permit more via .ESL files.

The Light Master (.ESL) file is an optimized file format introduced in the Fallout 4 v1.10 update. Using Light Master files allows more plugins (mods and patch mods) to be installed than previously possible with .ESP files. For .ESP files there is a limit of 255, whereas a maximum of 4096 .ESL files can be loaded (but in practice is difficult to achieve due to other technical constraints).

Both file types can be used together, which means you can install just .ESP files if your install count remains below the .ESP maximum, or just .ESL files if your count remains below the .ESL maximum, or some of both such as using .ESP files initially and then adding .ESL files thereafter when the maximum for .ESP has been reached.


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.


Requirements:

No special requirements. DLCs are not needed.


Known Issues:

If this mod's initial quest is not starting for you after being installed with the Vortex mod manager, it might be because it has not been properly activated/enabled.  If you click PLUGINS within Vortex, you will then see which mods are truly activated/enabled or not (whereas the MODS section sometimes shows incorrect information). Within that PLUGINS interface you can activate/enable the mods that were not properly set when installed.


Known Conflicts:

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, or a short while after loading a saved game when already outdoors in the Commonwealth.  Otherwise, it might (or might not) begin when standing for a few minutes outdoors at the Sanctuary Hills workbench.

If you experience crashes while traveling during the initial quest, or are unable to complete that quest, it is then highly likely some other mod has been installed that "breaks" the Vault 111 area (or possibly the Sanctuary settlement) thereby preventing this mod from working correctly.

If you are not able to find the"Structures>Miscellaneous" subcategory, then you installed a mod that alters the basic construction categories of the game. In which case you may not be able to build the Station Pod, and hence will not be able to use this mod -- if you are lucky, the conflicting mod may have simply rearranged items, with the Station Pod now residing elsewhere in some other category or subcategory instead of where it was intended to be.


To Uninstall:

Uninstall with the mod manager that was used for the original install, or delete SettlementMedicBot files.
