 > v3.00 that Integrates Ammo-Switching Recycles, Reuses, and Disables some Records, and may negatively impact mid-game saves.
 > v3.00 AIO esp is rebuilt from Lite esp, v3.00 is only compatible with saves using Lite.
 > Different Records means you cannot just install this mid-playthrough of your previous save that used my other mods. You have to uninstall my other overhauls and start a new game.
 > If you install this mod, you commit your save to this mod, as uninstalling will definitely ruin existing weapons.

You liked my mods but don't like 30+ ESPs? Well here is a merged patch, the Be-All-End-All of my Overhaul Mods. It's a comprehensive overhauling of many vanilla weapons, the patches in between, and then some.

LITE version has deactivated Moddable Pipe-Weapons Materials, it's an additional 10 set of attachments that changes the textures of Pipe-Weapons on the fly. But it is also an additional 700mb worth of textures. Lite forgoes this.

Rifles
------------------------------

 > Hunting Rifle - Primarily chambered between 38 and 308, it is relevant in any stage of the game, providing immense single-shot damage with the 50-Cal, or just general damage efficiency of ammunition in between. 

 >  Lever Rifle - Rechambered for the 44-Magnum, and depreciated the use and existence of 45-70, it is much more flexible and versatile. It can shoot 500-Magnum Receiver, or could use Shotgun-Shells. If you are ammo-starved, it can also fire the more common 45-Round.

 > Battle Rifle (Renamed from Assault Rifle) - Heavy-weight, accurate, fast-firing -- a weapon that shoots like a dream if you have the weight to spare. The Battle Rifle allows utilization of heavy ammunition with large capacity and fast rate of fire. Geared for Heavy-Gun users without actually being THAT heavy.

 > Assault Rifle (Renamed from Combat Rifle) - Lightweight, accurate, and controllable even at a distance; the modular Assault Rifle is antithetical to its larger cousin. Normally chambered for 5.56mm, it can be modified into a 45-Caliber submachine-gun, or a 308-Caliber Marksman Rifle.

 > Handmade Rifle - an End-Game counterpart for the Combat Rifle (Now Assault Rifle), it has much of the features, but does so better.

 > Radium Rifle - A radiation-centric rifle, it can be equipped with the Gamma-Receiver that deals the most radiation damage.

 > Railway Rifle - Further fleshed out, it also has different ammunition types. It can fire retrievable ball-bearings, or rivets that explode on proximity.

 > Gauss Cannon (Renamed from Gauss Rifle) - Merely upgraded and fleshed out.

------------------------------
Pistols and Submachine-Gun
------------------------------

> Submachine-Gun - the venerable Tommy-Gun has always been a laughing-stock because of its poor damage efficiency, now it has increased damage with the default, and sprays a lot in VATs. Commonly found without a stock, and with a 20-round stick-magazine, it can be equipped with the military-standard 30-round magazine, or the gangster's drum-magazines, as well as other assorted attachments.

N99 (Renamed from 10mm Pistol) - A generic semi-automatic weapon, while uninteresting it is still a jack of all trades. Capable of firing the .38 for it's capacity, the 10mm Auto for everything, the 45-ACP, 44-Mag, and 50-AE for anything larger. It can be tooled into a stop-gap submachine-gun

 > Magnum (Renamed from 44-Pistol) - Reworked with availability for both 44-Mag, and 45-Auto rounds, it can also fire the 308-Round and 500-Magnum. A pocket-sized cannon, it can also function as a stop-gap rifle.

 > Deliverer - The smallest of the bunch, it is nonetheless formidable. What it lacks in size, it makes up for it's sheer speed, and light-weight. Geared for mostly VATs builds.
------------------------------
Pipe Weapons
------------------------------

 > General - Features the MOST attachments in the game, while they start with poor performance, they can be decent with enough modification. They can be geared either with Commando, Rifleman, Gunslinger, and even Heavy Gunner for strength-builds.

 > Pipe Pistol / Rifle - Billions of different combinations, it can be built into a Pistol, Rifle, Assault-Rifle, Battle-Rifle, Submachine-Gun; Light, Medium, or Heavy Machine-Gun; an Anti-Materiel Rifle, a semi-automatic Sniper-Rifle -- all it takes is the proper attachments.

 > Pipe Bolt-Action - A simpler action, it is easier to tool with stronger ammunition when rate of fire is not that of an issue. Featuring one of the most damage in the game, it can also be tooled as a single-shot Shotgun with the most damage, or into a grenade-launcher with explosive shotgun shells.

 > Pipe Revolver - A midway between power and rate-of-fire, it can also be equipped with the Double-Action trigger providing decent fire-rate though held back by capacity. Like the Bolt-Action, it can be tooled with a shotgun-receiver, a pocket-shotgun or a hunting revolver-shotgun.

------------------------------
Shotguns
------------------------------

 > General - Shotguns, and associated attachments thereof provides close-range damage bonus. They also have tighter spread and longer range over-all, allowing participation at mid-range. When using Shotgun Shells, they can also switch into different ammunition types.

 > Combat Shotgun - Bold and imposing, there is nothing like the Combat Shotgun to create a sense of terror in its adversaries. Commonly chambered for the stalwart Buckshot, it can also be modified to fire 44-Magnum as a Combat Rifle, or 50-Caliber as an Anti-Materiel Rifle.

 > Double Barrel - A classic and robust weapon, it can be tooled either as a double-barrel shotgun, or double-rifle. Access to high-level ammo turning this into an Elephant-Gun, provides use at later stages of the game.
------------------------------
Energy Weapons
------------------------------

 > Laser Musket - an early-game energy weapon, it retains usability in the later stages by sheer damage alone. Though has weaker damage, it has unlimited ammunition and can load more ammo-capacity, likewise it can be equipped with the Semi-Automatic or Automatic Capacitor. Powerful as it is, it solely relies on cranks for this is mostly a backup weapon.

 > Laser Gun -The generic and venerable Laser-Gun, it merely has more attachments to stay relevant further in the game.

 > Institute Gun - A stronger version of the Laser Gun trading damage for slower rate-of-fire. Unlike the Laser-Gun, it can be equipped with a freezing capacitor.

 > Plasma Gun - A merely even-stronger energy weapon, it trades most of its fire-rate even at automatic fire, likewise the slower projectile for sheer power. It can also be equipped with a Grenade Barrel to function as a grenade-launcher.

 > Gatling Laser - Further fleshed out, it has many more options that addresses quality-of-life. It can also be a retooled into a cannon with the Overcharging Barrel.

 > Institute Gatling Laser - an Institute Variant of the Gatling Laser, while it cannot be tooled with the Overcharging Barrel, it is nonetheless more ergonomic and easier to use.  
------------------------------
Heavy Weapons
------------------------------

 > Minigun - somewhat a joke in vanilla, held back by poor damage by poor ammunition, now it can compensate by firing different ammunition. WIth more fleshed-out attachments, it is a lot more fun to use. 

 > Flamer - also somewhat a joke, it's major limiting factor is range which is properly addressed. It also comes with an option for an Incinerator barrel, shooting fireballs at a distance.

 > Missile Launcher - While powerful in itself, weight is it's limiting factor and is thusly addressed -- now lighter, but upgradable means it still gains weight but powerful as a result. The barrel-changes instead reduces damage, providing use with the single-barrel launcher for efficiency. It is also more flexible, allowing it to fire different missile-types of different effects, including the gimmick of Air-Bursting missiles. It can quickly switch between missiles. 

 > Fat Man - A powerful device with little attachments, more variants have been added and with finely-tuned performance, including a stronger explosion. The MIRV now explodes in the presence of enemies like a flying mine; the Rocket attachment allows more accurate pin-point shot; the Bunker-Buster makes sure that enemies have nowhere to hide; and the Targeting Scope to fire-and-forget.

Optional Changes
------------------------------

 > Non-Looping Full-Auto - A modification of the sound descriptors that changes full-auto sounds from a loop to repeated single-shots.

------------------------------
Known Issues
------------------------------

 > I am not a good programmer. While the features does work, there are some issues like slow downs and weapon-switch lag.
 > Ammo-Switching may instantly switch without reloading, this is due to weapon-switch lag.
 > There's a lot of clutter in the ESP file.
 > Having multiple attachments and keywords can slow down the system, and there's a lot of perks
 > My mod does not necessarily play well with other mods, and I do my own thing in most cases.
 > Not compatible with Horizon.
 > Mid-Game Saves will have broken weapons in the middle of installation. This is because of different attachments points being migrated and changed, as a result unequips attachments, and models associated with those. Such as unequipping a receiver will invariably make a weapon invisible due to missing mesh attachment points.
 > Legendaries are Brute-Forced into the game, this is  done by an alternate, and Identical weapon record simply spawning in place. But as a result, you can recycle the actor and respawn said new Legendaries.
 > Balance may be whack - While the attachments use multiplicative damage and stacks properly, but this also mean that it's easy to get runaway effectiveness that results in completely overpowered weapons.
 > Automatic Laser Musket and Power-Armor don't mix, this is because animator didn't do it.
 > Custom Fusion-Cores can be fed into the Power-Armor Frame -- the other alternative is to have the user blind to the amount of charges between cores.
