UPDATE
Better Armor Mod Descriptions is no longer being supported as it has been merged with Better Weapon Mod Descriptions into a single mod: Better Mod Descriptions.
This merged mod includes both weapon and armor mod descriptions.

DESCRIPTIONS

Update v1.2: Added Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) Support. Fixed some more errors (thanks to etisvoloch yet again).
Update v1.2b (01.04.2016): Added better descriptions for all Automatron armor, including robot armor.
Minor Update (04.04.2016): Corrected values in some robot head mods' descriptions (+100%, not +200%): Gorgon Helm (Assaultron Laser Damage), Gloom Helm (Explosive Limb Damage), Cyclops Helm (Mesmetron Damage), Berserker Helm (Limb Damage), Lament Helm (Explosive Limb Damage), Butcher Helm (Limb Damage) and Space Monkey Helm (+50% Energy Damage, not +150%).

Compatibility versions now only modify the armor modifications that are actually changed by the to-be compatible mod. You now need the main file as well as the compatible version. Load Order should be: Main File followed by Other Mod followed by Other Mod Compatible BAMD File.

Ever wondered how much a Dense Chestpiece actually reduces explosive damage or how much energy damage Power Armor Tesla Bracers really add? Then give this mod a try and see the actual numbers instead of vague descriptions!

Similar to Better Weapon Mod Descriptions, this mod strives to bring clarity to your armor mods by changing the descriptions of almost all armor mods, including normal armor, power armor and legendary armor effects.

As such, BAMD unfortunately will not be compatible with any other mod that modifies any armor mod.
It leaves all values at their vanilla setting and merely lists them all - including some which weren't actually noted in the old descriptions but still present.

Want a concrete example? Here's how it affects the VATS Matrix Overlay Power Armor mod:

Old Description: Increases VATS hit chance.
We know what it does. But how much?

New Description: +10% VATS Accuracy.
Just good old fashioned numbers: 10%.

These kinds of changes have been applied to all armor mods (including legendary mods, normal armor mods and power armor mods) in the game, revealing actual numbers for those who like their descriptions actually, well, descriptive.

Prefer it in video format? Mudcupss was so kind as to make a showcase of it:

Better Armor Mod Descriptions is not compatible with any mod that changes any values of armor modifications. This doesn't include custom textures, sounds etc., only the actual statistics and values.

BAMD could be made compatible with any such mod with a small bit of work, just leave a request.


KNOWN ISSUES

-Armor Mod descriptions may appear fairly small due to increased text length. This cannot be changed unfortunately. Sorry if you find reading small text difficult!
-The following descriptions were left unchanged as their exact effect is difficult to determine: Explosive Vent (Power Armor Legs), Kinetic Dynamo (Power Armor Torso)
-Attempting to load a save file which is missing 4 or more Plugins can cause your game to crash. This is a bug with Fallout 4 itself - beware
when deleting or updating/renaming multiple .esps!


Created with FO4Edit 3.1.3 for Fallout 4 1.3.47

MANUAL INSTALLATION


Check the following articles with videos by Gopher on how to enable and install mods for Fallout 4:
Enabling Mods for Fallout 4
Fallout 4: Installing Mods on PC (Manually)

If you haven't done so already, enable mods by adding the following line to your Fallout4Prefs.ini file under the [Launcher] section: bEnableFileSelection=1
If this line is already present but ends in 0, simply change it to 1.

Once this is done, the mod should automatically be loaded when you next start Fallout 4. If it is not, you need

to add it to your load order, found under AppData/Local/Fallout4/plugins.txt in your User folder.
Add a new line with your chosen ESPs full name (e.g. ConsistentAluminium.esp) and save the file. It should now load the mod if it it placed in your Data folder.
