NPC LEVEL OVERHAUL
 
Makes all NPCs level up relative to the player.
 
DESCRIPTION
This mod enables the 'PC Level Mult' and 'Auto-calc stats' flags on all NPCs that do not currently use them, so that they can level up relative to the player. I have grouped the affected NPCs into tiers; low, medium, high and boss. Each tier has a different level multiplier and minimum and maximum levels.

The low tier NPCs have a level multiplier of 0.75, a minimum level of 1 and a maximum level of 15.
This tier will include unnamed NPCs in non combat-oriented roles such as settlers, travelers, farmers, caravaneers, gamblers, refugees and junkies etc. It also includes unnamed NPCs from Goodsprings, Primm, Novac, Westside, Freeside and The Strip. Lastly it includes the unnamed NPCs from the NCRCF Powder Gangers, Primm's escaped convicts, Primm's NCR troopers, the Followers of the Apocalypse and members of the Viper, Jackal and Scorpions gangs.

The medium tier NPCs have a level multiplier of 1.00, a minimum level of 5 and a maximum level of 25.
This tier will include unnamed NPCs in combat oriented roles such as guards, mercenaries, prospectors and travelling merchants etc. It also includes named NPCs from the NCRCF Powder Gangers, Primm's escaped convicts, Primm's NCR troopers, the Followers of the Apocalypse and leaders of the Viper, Jackal and Scorpions gangs. Also included are unnamed NCR troopers and named troopers who hold the rank of private, recruit, prime and veteran legionaries and decanus' and both named and unnamed Brotherhood initiates and scribes and unnamed knights. Lastly it includes unnamed NPCs from the Fiends, Great Khans, Van Graffs, Vault 19 Powder Gangers and the Westside Militia.

The high tier NPCs have a level multiplier of 1.25, a minimum level of 15 and a maximum level of 35.
This tier includes named NPCs from the NCR as well as unnamed rangers and heavy troopers, named NPCs from the legion as well as unnamed NPCs who hold the rank of centurion, vexillarius and praetorian and named NPCs from the Brotherhood as well as unnamed paladins. Lastly it includes named NPCs from the Fiends, Great Khans, Van Graffs and the Vault 19 Powder Gangers.

The boss tier NPCs have a level multiplier of 1.50, a minimum level of 30 and maximum level of 50.
This tier is reserved for the leaders of the major factions. It includes both General Oliver and Chief Hanlon of the NCR, Caesar and Legate Lanius of the Legion, Papa Khan of the Great Khans and either Elder McNamara or Hardin, depending on the outcome of the Brotherhood's leadership after Still in the Dark is completed.

I made this mod for the primary purpose of allowing NPCs to use leveled lists containing different leveled items, for use in some upcoming mods of mine. I haven't tested the effects of these changes during a playthrough and only NPCs from the base game have been affected. All changes made by this mod are done once in a single script when the game is first started, and only affects NPCs from the base game. This mod will not alter any NPCs from the DLCs or other mods.
