Courier 6 Sierra Madre Safehouse gives the Courier a small safe haven within the Villa of the Sierra Madre in Dead Money. This is the third installment in the Courier 6 Compound/Safehouse series of mods. It is available to the player immediately upon arrival at the Sierra Madre, after their chat with Elijah. It is located in the first courtyard to the right of the fountain (as you're looking at Elijah), right next door to the Gift Shop and holo-vendor, accessible through a custom placed doorway. The key to the safehouse is located behind the holo-vendor, in a locked (Easy) toolbox, in the Gift Shop. This mod consists of the safehouse, 5 locked stash boxes (all located within the Villa), and a locked storage closet.
The Courier 6 Sierra Madre Safehouse, like its Goodsprings and Novac Compound counterparts, is a detailed, custom-crafted environment, in a unique and custom game space. It has sufficient storage, items, amenities, and interfaces for Dead Money. There are thirteen Courier 6 unique weapons and eight unique apparel pieces included.

The SM Safehouse is appropriately scaled down compared to its Mojave counterparts, for some semblance of balance within the unique Dead Money environment. It still packs plenty of punch though, and offers a safe area within the Sierra Madre Villa where your Courier can drop and store loot, get some needed rest where they couldn’t before, purchase or trade items, make a meal, craft necessaries, and repair their gear. There are more than enough useful resources included. The mod will well-reward Couriers with solid Lockpick skills (50 - 75) and those that have the Handloader perk. If you’re Courier doesn’t, no worries, you can still access enough resources that were not previously available in vanilla Dead Money.

The mod comes in two version, depending on player preference; a Full and LITE version. The full version offers numerous stocked items that the player will find useful in Dead Money to include Courier 6 unique weapons and apparel. There are enough stocked aid and miscellaneous items, as well as ammunition for Courier 6's unique weapons, and access to other items not available in Dead Money. There are also enough crafting items and ingredients included to bring more crafted augments to bear in the Sierra Madre. Also available are five stash boxes in the Villa area, that are similar to Dean's, but are far more useful, as well as a stocked storage closet. The LITE version retains the safehouse, but removes all stocked items from the safehouse and the stash boxes from the Villa. The LITE version does retain the stocked storage closet with scaled-down contents as a moderate boon for LITE players. If players have any concerns about over-powered play, the LITE version is for you. If you download both versions, ensure you only activate one at a time.

This mod carries a backstory with it, told through holotapes, located within the safehouse. Bottom line: Courier 6 was well-travelled prior to meeting Benny, and had been to the Sierra Madre. It also provides a tiny amount of back story to the rest of the mod series. Players should feel free to ignore or use the backstory to supplement their own role-playing as they see fit. The LITE version comes without backstory; it just doesn't fit in the stripped down version.

I’ve used assets from across the main game and all DLCs to craft this mod, so you will need all DLCs and Add-ons, (even though it’s a Dead Money-specific mod), to use it. This mod is built purely from vanilla assets, with two minor scripts added, so there is nothing included that can crash or freeze your game.

I made this series of mods for me, plain and simple. My intent was to make myself a one-stop Courier 6-worthy compound in Goodsprings, then expand that concept to smaller regional safehouses/compounds that are widely functional and broadly applicable to Courier 6’s wide-open backstory, allowing Courier 6 to spread their influence across the Mojave and DLC areas, and enjoy their many advantages for the entire game.

Unique weapons and apparel include edited Dead Money weapons and apparel, as well as others. These have been added to appropriate perk lists as applicable, so you can use them back in the Mojave, and all work with the Jury Rigging perk. (See Notes below).

STASH BOXES: The five Courier 6 stash containers are a highlight of the mod. They are spread throughout the Villa area of the Sierra Madre, and are filled with a number of desirable and useful items. There is one located at each of the four doors leading to the outlying areas of the Sierra Madre, and one next to Dean's stash that is hardest to reach because of the cloud (definitely worth getting to!) – I won’t spoil the exact location, but will post it within the comments section if anyone has trouble. These will all require locks to be picked. Skill requirements range from Easy to Hard. These stash boxes are worth their appropriate effort to gain access to. There is also a storage closet, (close to the safehouse; and previously an open area in vanilla DM—where the workbench was located), stocked with quality items that will require an Average lockpick skill to access. There are Lockpick skill augmenting items included in the mod. Mod placed resources will only be found within the Villa. There are none located in the districts or the casino.

WEAPONS: Courier 6’s Sierra Madre unique weapons have been enhanced, re-statted and re-sounded. The focus of the Courier 6 weapons includes Dead Money specific weapons, as well as a few others that are particularly useful…and deadly. Most have had firing rates adjusted. All have had spreads tightened, DAM/DPS overhauled, and AP use adjustments to hit harder and more accurately, and feel better overall in gameplay. All weapons also carry a unique effect. There is only a single copy available for each Courier 6 unique weapon in the mod. Weapons include: Unique BAR, Holorifle, Marksman Carbine, M1911, Auto-12 Shotgun, Sierra Madre “Judge”, Police Special, and five Melee weapons. Courier 6’s Cosmic Cleaning Knives are not upgradeable, so I’ve added a couple of  unique Courier 6 Super-Heater Knives that do Fire DAM on critical.

APPAREL: Courier 6 Sierra Madre unique apparel pieces are well-suited for the environment of Dead Money. DT has been generally increased, but unique set-ups are available for higher DT seeking players and hi-critical players. All pieces are uniquely enchanted to heavily favor the PC. Unique apparel includes: Custom Sierra Madre Reinforced Armor and Helmet, Duster with Riot Helm, Custom SM Jumpsuit, Custom Assassin Armor, one set of NVGs, and one set of protective goggles. Restrictions have been lifted so glasses, goggles and masks (if you have them from other mods) can be worn with both the Courier 6 SM Reinforced Helmet and Riot Helm.

I have not added Toxic Cloud or Speaker mitigating items because there is an excellent mod on Nexus which does that already. But I have buffed some apparel items to substantially boost Health, which gives you more time in the Cloud before you begin to take real damage.

I’ve play tested this mod on a full run and have found no incompatibilities. But as with anything, YMMV with your rig, load order, and whatever mods you run. Courier 6 unique weapons should be compatible with WMX and WRP. As stated above, I built this mod purely from vanilla assets, so there is absolutely nothing included here that can crash or freeze your game. I’ve Nav-meshed all applicable areas, so feel free to bring your companions into the safehouse. I have play tested this mod with a controller and it works perfectly.


You are free to ask for anything you would like to see added…except for auto-sorters. ;)

My request to users is that you let me know of any major problems you encounter. Just because it plays virtually flawless for me isn’t necessarily a 100% guarantee it will for you…although it should play at least serviceably.


Placed Item Shuffle: There are a number of placed items in the full version of this mod. As is to be expected, if you pick one thing up, it tends to shuffle the items around it. If it really bothers you, reload (although I never recommend re-loading an auto save) and attempt to pick up the wanted item; you tend to get less shuffle that way. Of course, you can just pick-up and rearrange things the way you want as well…or dump it all in containers…OR just download the LITE version and be done with it! I haven’t had any problems with my Couriers or companions walking by placed items and them moving or falling.
