Fallout New Vegas

About this mod

Adds a customisable armor to the game heavily based on what little is known in general about the character of the Courier.

Permissions and credits
This mod adds one (well technically 16) new armor(s) to the Mojave Wasteland - the Courier Ranger Armor. A mash-up of the Courier Duster, Elite Riot Gear, NCR Combat armor, and Joshua Graham's armor, this mod kind of combines some of the most iconic fashion pieces from your favorite Fallout game. As this is an armor made for the Courier of the Mojave, a fluid and changeable character, so to is the armor he* wears. This armor is customisable in game, as is explained further down in the description, to give everyone who downloads it scope to edit it to their own liking. This is my first armor mod and I think it came out alright, if you like it too please don't forget to leave an endorsement and/or an auld vote for Mod of the Month as a way of saying thank you, I appreciate your ideas and thoughts in the comments section too! As always, a big thank you and shout out to Dizzyfatpigeon [YouTube Channel] for the shmexy ass screenshots for the mod page, they're absolutely beautiful and I'm sure you can tell the difference between his and mine :P

*Yes, I know the Courier can be female too, I'm afraid this armor is male only, sorry girls :/

Some biiiig changes in V2.0, so if you're updating you'd do well to read the description again. To give a brief overview, there is now a backstory for the Armor, as well as more customisation options. The biggest of which being that you can aquire the armor a lot earlier in your playthrough than before, but it is less effective due to there being less armor plating on it. If you want, when you are a higher level, you can upgrade the armor plating on your Courier Ranger Armor to bring it up to scratch for higher levels.

The armor can be found  in the a shack near the entrance to the Lonesome Road DLC, just East of Primm. If you approach the entrance to Lonesome Road and then head left as you walk up the hill, you should come across an unlocked shack in the desert. If you head in, you'll find the remains of the previous tenant, and some info on the armor and what you should do with it.

This armor can be customised by you, the player, in game with the use of some tools you can find inside the shack you find the armor in. In one of the corners inside the shack are some items. These items and the effect they have on your armor are as follows:

  • Workbench - Allows you to fix up the Old Armor (Req. Repair 35) and Upgrade the Courier Ranger Armor with extra armor plating. (Req. Repair 80 + Comabt Armor x1)
  • Paintgun - Allows you to change the decal on the back of your duster
  • Scissors - Allows you to cut the arms off your Armor
  • Glue - Allows you to Glue the arms back on your Armor
  • Belt - Allows you to strap items from your inventory (Pack of Cigarettes or a Clip of .308 Ammo) to your Helmet, along with allowing you to add some playing cards if you're feeling lucky
  • Knife - Allows you to scratch a personal touch into your armor/take it off. (Adds/Removes "Benny Was Here" Scratch Text)
  • Electronics - Allows you to fix/break your visor. 

You can only edit the appearance of your armor if you have it equipped while interacting with these tools. The Sleeveless version of the armor is 2lbs lighter than the Fullsleeved version, but has one less DT. Just like the different variants of the Courier Duster from the Lonesome Road DLC, the effects of the different variants of the armor are the same as those of the variants of the Courier Duster. So, for example, if you have the Caesar's Legion variant of the Courier Ranger Armor Equipped, it will give you +1 Strength and +15 Action Points, just like the Caesar's Legion Courier Duster would.

As of version 1.1 I've added an extra decal - the Mojave Express decal. This is for those of you that the Courier doesn't do much to represent his previous career after getting shot in the head.

As of version 2.0, there will be no more additions to the modification system of this mod, so please do not request them in the comments. The scripts are already faaar too complicated, and I have added 44 new armor records to the game thus far to get this much. I'm done adding more customisation.

If you have a decal on your armor when upgrading it it will be removed, you can paint it back on with the Paintgun afterwards. If you fix/break your visor or add/remove the "Benny Was Here" scratch text the strap will come off your helmet. Likewise you can just put it back on straight away.

This mod requires the Lonesome Road and Honest Hearts DLCs, along with the Riot Gear Helmet Neck Cover by Gopher. If you don't want the whole mod installing the textures only is grand.

Please report any bugs or glitches you find to me, either via message or on the mod page, thanks. Don't forget to endorse if you like this or any other mod, it might only take a few seconds of your time but it can mean a lot to the mod authors that make all the baller content on this website. Show them you appreciate the work they put in.
Feel free to upload your own screenshots to the mod page under the images tab, I enjoy seeing what others can do with the stuff I make. If you are planning on making a video featuring my weapon I encourage you to do so, and, if you can, let me know if/when you upload it so I can add it to the mod page. If you encounter any obvious bugs while recording I would really appreciate it if you would let me know and give me a chance to fix them before you upload the video. I understand that this is not always possible due to time constraints and whatnot, but if it's at all possible that'd be sweet.
