REQUIREMENTS

  • Run the game with f4sevr_loader.exe
  • bHaptics Tactsuit. Make sure bHapticsPlayer is running and the devices are connected.



WHERE TO BUY?

INSTALLATION

Manual Installation: Extract the contents of the rar file inside your “Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4 VR\Data” directory.

Mod Manager Installation: Use Vortex or Mod Organizer 2 and install it like any other mod. Load order doesn’t matter. This mod is an f4sevr plugin only. No esp.



CONFIGURATION

This mod comes with a configuration ini tactsuit_vr_plugin.ini (Can be found in Data\F4SE\Plugins folder). Everything in this mod is configurable including some sleep times between feedback plays and intensity of all effects played. 

This way, you won’t have to modify the actual feedback files to adjust it for your preferences.

There are comments in the ini for explaining what each setting does.

If you are playing with left handed mode, you need to set LeftHandedMode to 1 in the ini.

For intensity settings, you can modify them to increase or decrease the intensity of the effect or set it to 0 to disable it if you don’t want it. The values are decimal values, so they act like a percentage increase. For example 0.5 means 50% of the original intensity. 10 means 1000% of the original intensity.



EFFECT CONFIGURATION

This mod uses .tact files which can be designed easily in bHaptics Designer. You can also modify these feedback files that come with the mod. Tact files are in F4SE\Plugins\bHaptics.

Tact files are named by the effect they are assigned to. For example "Ballistic_1.tact" file is run when an npc shoots the player with a ballistic rifle. You can add another feedback file for this effect by making a Ballistic_2.tact or Ballistic_other.tact file and putting it in F4SE\Plugins\bHaptics directory. As long as the file starts with "Ballistic_" it will be recognized and when the time comes for the effect to be run, one of the files will be selected randomly.

I encourage you to make and share your tact files to help other people enjoy them too.




COMPATIBILITY

This mod generally uses keywords/races to detect weapon/unarmed attack types so it should be compatible with every mod. If a mod somehow doesn’t fit in any type, they use default effects for each effect (Gun,Melee,Grenade etc.). It’s an F4SEVR plugin, so there is no esp and load order is not important.




FUTURE

  • Add power on effect for melee weapons like Ripper and Chainsaw, also rotation start effect for weapons like minigun (Not possible until we have a mod to get input info).
  • Let me know if you have any other ideas.
