With RobCo Certification, you too can turn a hunk of junk into a brand-new robot assistant with our five-part correspondence course- get RobCo Robot Company certified, today!

RobCo Certified adds a new three-rank perk with the same name. With the perk, if you have a spare Fission Battery and some Robot Spare Parts you'll be given the option to repair any robot you destroy, turning them into a loyal ally who'll follow you anywhere- or you can use your training to build new ones at Cerulean Robotics in Vegas. Each rank allows you to repair bigger and better robots to command, as well as to further upgrade the ones you have- improving their firepower, giving them new weapons and abilities (like strapping Rippers to your Protectron's hands, or letting Mister Handies wield weaponry).

The mod also adds a chain of Crazed Inventor perks, that let you craft robotic buddies from random wasteland clutter, spare components and leftover body parts- Safebots to carry your junk, Ovenbots to roast your enemies, or Hoverbrains to overwhelm your foes.

Plus, in the Old World Blues version take Mad Scientist perks to play god, and create cyborgs from dead dogs, deathclaws, people and even radroach meat and robot spare parts.

It also adds a bunch of tools and items you can use to fix up your bots, or augment their capabilities, helping them lock-on to enemies and suchlike.

    What about Old World Blues!
    Version 1.1 onwards will require Old World Blues- it's too major to handle by just adding a compatibility patch. When I'm pretty sure that the current version is stable, I'll start on 1.1.

    You should use these things!
    Bear in mind RobCo is intended to mesh as well with vanilla content as possible, stylistically. If it doesn't look like it could've come from vanilla New Vegas, I'm not really interested.

    You should add a Toaster robot lol!
    Shut up. Just, shut up. It's not funny, it's tacky and I have been asked this far too many times. Why would I want to add a reference to myself into a mod I'm making for myself?
