Ever been bothered by opened everywhere doors in you settlements? Trader comes in your camp and leave gates open wide for every single raider in Commonwealth joy and that pissed you off? Me very.

Auto Doors 2.0 uses new way to automate doors and was rewritten from scratch. New esp, new scripts, some new textures and meshes (well it's a edited vanilla actualy)!
This mod addes craftable devices that will allow to automate your settlement doors. There are three main type of devices, some have few types:
  • Door Closing Mechanism - this device will automatically close opened door after some time. It's snapable to wall and should be placed as close to door as posible. When (re)placed script attached to this device will find door and start continuously scan it status.
  • Door Sensor - thee are to types of door sensors, one with internal power (Autonom) source and one that should be powered externally (External). External door sensor will not consume power unit but if not powered it will not work (mostly like a lamp). Both door sensors when attached to door will continuously scan area for actors (player or any other NPC) and when one approach to setted distance will open door, once actor leave range it will close door.
  • Keycard panel - there are three types of panels, each differed by color: blue, red, yellow. When attached to door it will continuously scan door status and if it closed will lock it to key. This door may be unlocked only through this keycard panel if actor have specific keycard. There are three keycard, by one for each panel type. Keycards craftable at chemlab under UTILITY category. Limited NPC support. Keycard panel will unlock door when NPC that has appropriate card in inventory but NPC may not understand it. May be when F4SE come out on full throttle there will be a way to change it.
  • Emergency Lockdown Mechanism - big metal device, supposed to be used on gates, but will also work with all other doors. Require power and wire connection. When powered on will close and lock gate (door) until power off.
  • Proximity sensor - works as automatic switch. Turns on when hostile or ally NPCs in its range, and turns off when targeted NPC out of range. Each sensor can be tweaked to react on hostiles or allies, also range can be increased or decreased. Require wire connection.
All devices reevaluate it target door when crafted and/or replaced. Script will scan area for doors in short range, if there several door found it will calculate nearest. You can find this devices in Power->Miscellaneous category in workshop menu.

  • Extensibility
    This mod may support not only craftable via workshop menu doors, but also premade one. But for this i need to add this door to form list, so if you want me add some door you should provide me with it reference ID in worldspace or base ID. I will add only vanilla doors, and Homemaker/Snap'n Build doors as this mods will update.
    Third party mod doors: this mod also may support doors provided by other mods with minor edits and none incompatibility. For this third party mod author should add to his doors keyword AD_CrossModUniversalDoorSupport [KYWD:xx3000807] from Auto Doors mod. Auto Doors, of course, should be one of the master file for this third party mod.
