Thanks for the hot files guys, you rock!


Hello everybody! This is a simple mod that swaps several static/unusable furniture pieces with usable versions. Both FNV-only and FNV+Tale of Two Wastelands versions are available.

The FNV-only version requires Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road, whereas the TTW version obviously requires Tale of Two Wastelands and all DLC for NV. The mod has been cleaned with FNVEDIT and all. 

As always, you should always make a backup save before installing ANY mod, in case something goes wrong.


>WHAT
Several pieces of furniture have been swapped with versions you can use all over the land.

The specific furniture pieces that you now can sit on are the park tables, the wooden bench, the swings, the train station bench, the school chairs and the one wooden bench outside the Prospector's Saloon. Additionally, both the barbecue and camp grills can now be used to cook food, like regular campfires.

Since I like to be thorough I manually checked every single instance of each furniture piece (for instance, the park bench alone has 4 different variants -- making this mod was every bit as boring and infuriating as you may imagine, I couldn't work more than 10 minutes on it each day before I started asking myself why I had to come up with this idea) to only replace the ones that made sense. So stuff that was upside down or half-buried was left static. No navmesh was altered. I also didn't change a few vanilla things, such as the default static chairs, because for instance the Chair01 static was used about 800 times in the TTW version and I'd rather preserve my sanity.

As this was something I made for myself, I WILL NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES. I will not add to it or subtract from it. The mod is offered as-is. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. EDIT THE MOD YOURSELF IF YOU WANT TO ADD/SUBSTRACT MORE!

>NOTES
Please keep in mind that when sitting on the bench outside the Prospector's Saloon your feet will be hanging a bit. This bench was never meant to be used as a seat so it was either that or having the player's butt clip through. I didn't want to bother moving the whole building, so if it bothers you, just don't sit there, ya know.

Similarly, the park benches were not supposed to be used like this so the old ones were too high up in comparison to the new ones and, again, the player's feet would be hanging in the air. I just dragged down the park tables, so I had to drag down the clutter on them as well. So, if you've already visited a cell with these tables, random stuff will most likely be floating above them.


>WHY
It started with me wanting to sit on swings, and then, as always, things got out of hand.


>WHERE
All over! Open the mod in FNVEDIT if you want to see what cells were changed. I'd recommend placing this mod high up in your load order to help with possible conflicts.


>HOW
To install, extract the contents of your downloaded file to your "Steam/SteamApps/Common/Fallout New Vegas/Data" folder. Then activate the mod through your preferred launcher by ticking the checkbox next to the esp. Or you can use your mod manager of choice to download the mod automatically. To uninstall, simply delete the files from your Data folder, and you're good to go. Have fun!
