This mod wouldn't exist without these fantastic people, who answered our call for help,
and have invested tons of time & effort into making the mod!


Toggleable item descriptions in the pip-boy with a fine vanilla friendly UI.
Descriptions with fancy animation in the world, when you looking at items. With customizable timer.

For modmakers or anyone who wants to write their own descriptions for their mods or other mods
please check the "dumper" plugin. It creates lists of items, that are used for descriptions!
You just have to write descriptions after "=" symbol and that's it.
Detailed instructions how to use dumper and lists is in the archive.

If you wish your work to be in this mod - just message me or leave a comment,
I'll be glad to include it in the main mod package.

When in the pip-boy - click on the icon in the bottom right corner to turn descriptions on\off.
Controller users - press left stick.
To scroll through large descriptions - hover over the description and use mouse wheel.
Controller users - move right stick up/down.
When not in pip-boy - look at any item, and wait a second or press Y key (configurable).
If you don't like to see descriptions in worldspace - turn off the timer or
change the time delay in the MCM menu.

This mod is compatible with most Pip-Boy altering mods, such as: VUI+ and Darnified.

Install required mods first. They are essential and without them – this mod will not work.
"B42 Descriptions" mod installs like any other mod, manually or using a mod manager.
I recommend the latter for easy uninstallation.
Un-installation is same as installation, but in reverse.
