About this mod

Adds a new, short coat variant of the NCR ranger combat armour. This mod is primarily intended as a modders resource, but I have made three playable versions for any non-modders to use.

Permissions and credits

DESCRIPTION:
The 'Short Ranger Coats' mod adds a new variant of the NCR ranger combat armour, with a shortened coat. Made on request by 'maximizers' from the Nexus Forums.

NOTE: All of the resources from this mod have been moved here. The playable versions are still available.

I have re-uploaded the vanilla short coat outfits today (21/02/16) to fix a small mesh bug. Now version 1.1. DLC versions remain unchanged as the bug was not present in those files.

I just added a 'No Shoulders' version (22/02/16) by request from the comments. I've removed the large shoulders from the duster, only to find a dark texture underneath. I had a go at lightening it up, but am not totally happy with it. Nonetheless it's better than the original, so it'll have to do.

The mod is made as modders resource primarily, but I have also made some playable versions for any non-modders to use. The three versions are standalone, leveled or replacer.

The Standalone version simply adds one copy of the new, short coat variant to a location in the Mojave (See images.) The Leveled version adds the short coat version to the same leveled lists as the NCR ranger combat armour, giving you a 50/50 chance to find the short coat version. Finally the Replacer version just replaces all NCR ranger combat armour with the new short coat version.

There are now versions for Honest Hearts and Lonesome Road! These versions obviously require that you have the respective DLC to use them!

All three .esps are included in the download, but you should only activate *ONE* at a time, to avoid any possible errors.

And for anyone who can't find the armour, here's the location:

BUGS/CONFLICTS:
Bugs:
  • There are no associated bugs in the latest version, but be sure to report any you find to me so they can be fixed quickly.

Conflicts:
  • The leveled version might conflict with any other mods which change the NCR ranger combat armour leveled lists, however the conflicts wont be game-breaking. They can be solved with a merged patch.
  • Other than that be sure to report any more conflicts you find so I can fix them ASAP.

INSTALL/UNINSTALL:
  • To install, copy the 'ShortRangerCoats-VERSION.esp' and the 'Meshes' folder into your Fallout New Vegas data folder. Or simply activate the mod in Fallout Mod Manager.

  • To uninstall, delete the 'ShortRangerCoats-VERSION.esp' from your Fallout New Vegas data folder. Then go the 'Meshes' folder and delete the 'shortrangercoats' folder. Or simply deactivate the mod in Fallout Mod Manager.

NOTE: There are three .esps included in the download. Which will replace the word VERSION with either REPLACER, LEVELED or STANDALONE. Only *ONE* of these .esps should be activated at a time to avoid potential errors. They haven't been tested together, so do so at your own risk.

NOTE: The installation method for the Lonesome Road version is exactly the same, only use 1 .esp at a time. Honest Hearts only includes 1 .esp, so the install is also the same.

NOTE: Fallout Mod Manager is highly recommended!
