About this mod

This mod fixes clipping/placement issues in Factions Reloaded - Merge and makes other minor changes all listed in the description.

About:

I started this mod after many, many hours of playing Fallout NV with Factions Reloaded - Merge installed. The first time I installed the mod and encountered the NCR sandbag checkpoint to the East of Wolfhorn Ranch and the floating walls by the new Legion camp near Cottonwood Cove, I uninstalled it. I tried other mods that were supposed to add a larger/better Legion presence and none felt as nice. So I reinstalled it and just lived with the issues. Recently I have learned more about the GECK and decided to tackle these fixes myself.

This mod is both about fixing those clipping and item placement issues, as well as making the mod and the Mojave feel more alive. In addition to clipping fixes I have set certain NPCs to respawn, changed their behavior to hopefully improve game performance, and added things that I personally felt were missing. Everything that I have done has been documented below! This way you aren't downloading any surprises with my mods. This is still a work in progress, and due to the extent of Factions Reloaded - Merge, I know there are issues that I haven't found myself yet. If you find any, please feel free to let me know in the comments and I'll add them to my list of things that still need fixed!

Overall NPC Changes:

- (3) Legion Advanced Scout set to respawn
- (29) Legion Deserters set to respawn
- (5) Legion Evocatus set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (16) Legion Hastati set to respawn and now contain ears when Killed
- (6) Legion Merchants set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (6) Legion Optio set to respawn and now contain ears when Killed
- (5) Legion Sagitarri set to respawn and now contain ears when Killed
- (45) Legion Scrappers set to respawn and now contain ears when Killed
- (23) Legion Snipers set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (45) Legion Sub Runners set to respawn and most contain ears when killed
- (13) Legion Venator set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (3) Legionary Blacksmith set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (1) Legionary Instructor set to respawn and now contain ears when killed
- (3) Malnourished Brahmin (Legion Brahmin) set to respawn [v1.1]

Performance Fixes?:
- Some new NPCs were changed to "No Low Level Processing", meaning that "The NPC does not update its AI unless the player is in the same cell as it." This will prevent your game from running checks on that NPCs location when you are nowhere near it. This will not affect any caravans or NPCs that are intended to roam.

Legion Forward Camp Gamma (Near Cottonwood Cove):
- NOTE: I completely changed the walls to this camp. It didn’t make sense to me that Cottonwood Cove, the largest Legion presence West of the river, had no hard structural defenses yet this “camp” had a cement wall around it. The wall also had a lot of clipping issues, height inconsistencies, and parts showing that had texture gaps. While this is the largest Legion camp added by Factions Reloaded, I didn’t think it fit the lore (personally). If the legion was able to construct a cement wall around a camp, why don’t they have fortifications elsewhere? There is now a scrap wall around the camp so it feels more like a forward camp, along with a few additions. I also added more Legion forces to the camp due to its proximity to Cottonwood cove.
