About this mod

This mod makes you wish for a nuclear winter.

Permissions and credits

200 years after atomic bombs scorched the world, the Commonwealth has been forever changed. When the ash of war settled and the embers cooled, it revealed an altered and new world. Where tall elms once stood now stand saguaro cacti. Where pines used to grow near the brook now sprout joshua trees. From Concord to Atlantic Offices, the landscape has been transformed into that of an old western. Something akin to what you'd see on the west coast. The sun now scorches hotter and the earth has been forever changed, and the Commonwealth is a blistering example and reminder of mankinds mistakes. This mod is a spiritual successor to the now dead Dustbowl Overhaul. Desperados Overhaul features new, realistic desert flora, complete with full LOD's and various extra details. It also includes high quality landscape and rock textures for everything needed to make the world feel like a true Mojave in Boston. Strap on your spurs, and grab your big iron, this ain't no nuclear winter, Desperado.

Simply drag and drop the contents of this mod into your games data folder, and activate with the mod manager of your choice.

This is a very important section to read if you'd like to know about the technicalities and history of this mod. Some may remember a mod I made long ago called Dustbowl. Some also may know this mod was removed due to exceedingly game breaking bugs, and that's why this is here now. Desperados is my answer. The mod in it's current state STILL breaks precombines (which I intend to fix in a very forceful way when I have more time). The main reason for releasing this mod is because Dustbowl was no longer a work I was proud of and I wanted to deliver the best possible desert experience I could, even if it had to break precombines to exist. Due to the nature of this mod, there is no way to NOT break precombines, however as I mentioned, there's a fix planned *at some point*, so in it's current state I do not suggest using this for elongated periods of play.
