Watch the Gameplay video for a quick overview of these features!

Mod Configuration Menu : Allows you to modify several of the features in the mod.

 - Core Temperature: is the internal temperature of the Sole Survivor.The core temperature of the player dictates the severity of ailments that occur over time and if low enough, leads to death.
 
 - Wetness: is a measure of how wet your character is. Standing in water, wading, swimming or sweating increase this.

 - Ambient Temperature/Wind Speed: negatively affects your core temperature and is more intense depending on the weather.

- Heat Sources: are any object that produces a significant amount of heat. This usually pertains to sources of fire.
Fadingsignal’s Campsite mod also has a compatibility patch and some custom functionality so you can build heat sources on the go.

- Insulation: is your armors’ ability to maintain heat.Insulation is on a range from 0-45 (+Base Endurance), 45 being totally insulated, 0 being totally unprotected. The insulation value of clothing and armor depends on the material, thickness and coverage of the item.
To view your insulation, there is an aid item that is automatically added to your inventory upon mod initialization. Likewise, you may also assign a Hotkey in the MCM menu.

If an armor mod is not yet supported, you may add support through a tutorial in the optional downloads section OR use the MCM menu option
to 'Change Armor Insulation'. Allowing you to manually change the armors’ insulation value.

- Consumables/Helpful Items: There are several items that can give you temporary protection from the cold. Using these will help boost
your core temperature or act as utility.

- Food/Beverages: Cooked food will temporarily provide a heating bonus that will be added to your core temperatures rate of change.
                   +2.1F        |     +1.167C         over 5 mins
        - Alcohol: Consuming alcohol provides a short but potent core temperature heating bonus accompanied by an insulation penalty.
                    +3.15F      |     +1.75C         over 3 mins
        - HandWarmers: these packets create an exothermic reaction that provides a potent heating effect over a long duration.
                    +9F        |    +5.0C            over 15 mins
        -Blanket: While useless during travel, blankets provide a heating bonus while sleeping.
                     +1.2F      |     +0.67C       times the # hours slept
        -Water: H2O doesn’t provide any inherent benefits to your core temperature but will freeze over time while in below freezing temperatures.

- Ailments: Ailments are the result of hypothermia over an extended period. The severity of ailments is determined by the stage of hypothermia you are experiencing.

- Optional Files (in the installer)

- Frozen Ones: This plugin includes new frozen one ghouls textured by Wanaming0 that have deadly new abilities. 

- Nuclear Winter Clothing: Outfit mashups by ABAC1312 that are more appropriate for winter. Adds sleeves to many short-sleeved outfits, and includes a few unique outfits.

In the interface/TemperatureWidget folder, there will be a series of Temperature Widget folders that are alignments of the widget.
Choose the alignment you prefer and extract the TemperatureWidget.swf to your Fallout 4/Data/interface folder.



Released Compatibility Patches

Weathers are mostly compatible because I have implicit weather directives and I have an MCM option 'Change Armor Insulation' to add insulation to clothing in-game. 

I created some rather simple tutorials for adding support. They are available in the Downloads section.
 
Feel free to send me mod compatibility patches and I can add them to the downloads section and/or link to them in the Compatibility Patches article.
