About this mod

Replaces many of the vanilla weapons with different, vanilla-friendly weapons. AWOP integration included.

Known Issues
For whatever reason, the laser rifle and plasma rifle do not play nicely with the Anniversary Anim Pack by Hitman. It has something to do with how the models are set up for the ISControl node, but I'm not too well-versed on how to actually fix it. The easiest solution I can provide is to simply rename or remove the 2hrAttack4IS.kf that the anim pack provides. I'll look into this issue more thoroughly to see how to fix it.

Note: This issue was fixed in Version 1.3 by changing the attack animation. Laser and Plasma Rifles will have recoil, but it's better than not being able to shoot straight.

A simplistic weapon replacer mod, with very little rebalancing.

VEW is a project I began after creating two previous attempts at replacing weapons. I created VEW as many weapons I had previously replaced felt out of place, especially considering certain weapons couldn't be replaced, like heavy weapons and energy weapons. So, I created this mod to compliment a more vanilla-centered experience. Some weapons have been replaced to better resemble their FO1/2 variants as well, for lore consistency.

B42 Optics and Descriptions support.

There are a few optional ESPs:
VEW - AWOP - Repairlist: Creates a merged repairlist, allowing you to repair weapons using scrap metal, electronics, duct tape, wonderglue, or abraxo cleaner. You have to enable AWOP as well to use this, unfortunately.
VEW - LWIS Patch: An optional patch for "Laser Weapon Iron Sights", since that mod uses scripts to replace the weapon's models, I had to overwrite the scripts in order to make it work. (Optional in 1.3)
VEWBetterFireAndGrenadeDamage: Essentially what it says on the tin. Explosives will deal about twice the amount of damage, and fire will do more damage over time.
HonestHeartsWeaponIntegration: The .45 Auto Pistol and .45 Auto SMG will occasionally show up in the hands of enemies, such as Fiends, along with the .45 Auto ammo. This is unnecessary if you have another mod (which probably does it better) that adds DLC weapons to the Mojave. (REMOVED in Version 1.3)

In order for the L30 Gatling's sound to play correctly, the long wind-up animations for the Minigun are included from FO3. This also fixes some issues with aiming in 3rd person, but this may adversely affect your use of said weapons. (As well as having an audio hiccup, but there's not much I can do about that)

This mod is still in it's early stages, if there's any bugs, please let me know and I'll work on fixing them in the next update.

This mod would not be possible without the assets created by:


WME is compatible with this mod, granted you place this mod above WME. The weapons that haven't been replaced/changed will still have their respective mods added.

Someone has created a patch for WMX, if you use VEW and WMX, get it here.
