Wearable Postman Shoulder Bag by Eferas



Since Aldebaran90 released her Wearable Travel Backpack mod I dreamed about adding the shoulder bag from the Postman Outfit. So, after a long day and night of work (and learning mostly), I managed to add it in game, for both male and female.
Meshes and textures are standalone, so if modders want to create a retext they are welcome to do it, it will not replace the original Postman Outfit.
Version 1.6 adds a new small satchel, this one will have physics too, and as always retex will be welcome.

In recent years I have downloaded mods shown by Gopher and followed his tutorials, it's nice to finally have one of my mods (v.1.5) shown on his channel.




WHAT THIS MOD DOES:
It will add 7 craftable shoulder bags and 1 small satchel (this one with physics) to the game, each bag weight is 2 and adds 30 carryweight bonus when equipped (30-2=28 carryweight bonus), except the small satchel which adds only 10 carryweight bonus. You can also give the shoulder bags or the small satchel to human followers.

All the bags and the small satchel use Slot 61, which is used at the beginning of the game for carrying the baby, so it's the best option unless used by another mod or if it's used by other vanilla scene that I don't know of.


HOW TO GET IT:
You can craft the bags at any chemistry station. Don't ask me to change station, I will not. I tried using the armor station and I failed, but I like how it is right now so I will not change it. If you want to create a compatibility patch for another mod, feel free to do it.

HOW TO INSTALL:

- STEP 1: Download and install.
Manual installation: extract the archive, copy/past everything in your data folder, then activate the esp in NMM or any other program you use to activate esp files.
NMM: just download and let NMM do its thing, then enable the esp in the plugins tab.

- STEP 2: how to enable modding.
You MUST manually edit the ini files in your Fallout4 folder (where your saves are) or the mod will not work, any mod will not work.

You will need to change the following line in Fallout4.ini:
sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\, MUSIC\, SOUND\, INTERFACE\, MESHES\, PROGRAMS\, MATERIALS\, LODSETTINGS\, VIS\, MISC\, SCRIPTS\,
SHADERSFX\

You will need to add the following line to the Fallout4Prefs.ini file below the section marked [Launcher]:
bEnableFileSelection=1

Some users also had to edit the Fallout4_Default.ini that is in your installation folder in order to make the mods work.

Or you may want to check this mod: ArchiveInvalidation by InsanePlumber, I didn't try it yet but it should work.

If you have any problem just check the FAQ and the sticky posts.



HOW TO UNISTALL:
Manual: delete all the files added by this mod.
NMM: let NMM do its thing.


COMPATIBILITY AND ISSUES:
- I used Aldebaran90's esp from her mod in order to create mine and avoid compatibility problems, to know more just read her detailed description on her mod page Wearable Travel Backpack.
- This mod is compatible with Aldebaran90's Wearable Travel Backpack Mod and any other mod Aldebaran90's mod is compatible with.
- Before updating from version 1.5 to 1.6 you will need to load your game, unequip the bag, save the game, exit the game, uninstall the version 1.5, load the game, save again, exit, install version 1.6, load the game, craft the bag and have fun!
If you need to fix your carry weight, use this console command: player.modav carryweight #
Replace # with, for example, 30 to increase of 30 points carry weight, or -45 to decrease of 45 points of carry weight.



RECOMMENDED MODS AND RETEX NOT LISTED IN OPTIONAL FILES:

- Aldebaran90's Wearable Travel Backpack mod of course (I suggest 50 carryweight version, the bigger backpack should carry more stuff).
- CommanderMiranda's Wearable Postman Shoulder Bag Retextures.
- steevinlove's Spider-Gwen Messenger Bag Re-Texture.
- azarkiowa's Wearable Shoulder Bag Retextures by Azar.
- TotalMeltdown's Hubris Comics Shoulder Bags. Lore-friendly bags from the Hubris Comics.
- UlithiumDragon's Wearable Small Satchel - Black Retexture. Black retex of the small satchel.



CREDITS:
I want to thank jonwd7 from the NifTools forum for helping me using the alpha version of the new NifSkope, and Aldebaran90 for allowing me to use her esp as a base for mine.
This mod was made with FO4EDITMaterial Editor and Nifskope. Thanks guys for creating this tools.

Thanks a lot to the Retex Artists:
- Catwoman1989 for the Brown Leather and Shadowed Leather.
- KamillaDahlia for Casual Reskin.
- Elianora for Dark Vault Dweller Variant.

If you are downloading this mod from any site other than www.nexusmods.com, then you are most likely downloading an old and
outdated version of the mod with malware and virus added to it.

PERMISSIONS:
Retex are allowed without asking permission, but if you send me a link in PM I would like it, I may also upload it in optional files if you want.
If you want to create a compatibility patch for another mod you can do it, but send me a PM with a link so I can add it in the description.
You can't upload this mod anywhere and before using the assets in this mod you must ask for permission.
