About this mod

Small tweaks to a few perk and challenge formlists, including Animal Friend, Fight the Power, and Old World Gourmet. Uses JIP NVSE.

Permissions and credits
First off, thanks to LolzMan1325 for his mod JIP NVSE Sawed-Offs for Cowboy, which I did modify code from.

This mod adds a few weapons and enemies to some perk and challenge formlists, which I felt other mods overlooked or ignored. This mod can be used on its own, but is intended to be used with other mods that fix and/or expand formlists, such as YUP, WMIM, and JSawyer Ultimate, all of which I highly recommend. It's all scripted, so it is compatible with all mods that modify these formlists.

The changes are as follows:

NEW in v2.0!
Condensed all the changes into one script to reduce overhead. Also added a few new perk/trait tweaks:

Fight the Power!
  • Elijah's Robes
  • Armor of the 87th Tribe
  • Scorched Sierra power armor

The perk works by checking if an NPC is wearing the faction armor of the Legion, NCR, and BoS. Elijah's Robes was overlooked by YUP, and I thought that the Lonesome Road mini-bosses fell under the Legion/NCR member umbrella, so I elected to add those armors too.

Four Eyes
  • Boogeyman's Hood (JSUE only)
  • Psycho-Tic Helmet
  • Wastehound Helmet
  • The Devil's Pigtails

All of these helmets have goggles on them, which YUP covered with the Four Eyes trait (and even updated the Boogeyman's Hood). I added the Four Eyes effect to those helmets, and included the JSawyer Ultimate Edition bonuses if the player has that installed. Note that the Boogeyman's Hood and The Devil's Pigtails don't normally appear in game (as they're leftover FO3 content), but this is compatible with any mod that restores them.

Old World Gourmet
  • Bubblegum
  • Cram
  • Gum Drops
  • Irradiated Cram

NOTE: I had to do hard edits for these changes, so if you have any mods (other than YUP, which this mod should load after) that edit these consumables, you should do some conflict resolution.

It seems like these items fall under the "junk food" category of Old World Gourmet, especially since Pork 'n' Beans is considered "junk food."

NEW in v1.1!
I cleaned up the script routines so that they can be added mid-save. Thanks to Demorome and Anro with that, and the new perk addition!

Animal Friend
  • Fire Geckos
  • Yao Guai
  • Excluded Legendary Fire Gecko, Legendary Night Stalker, Shadis, Ghost of She, and Ghost of She cubs

There doesn't seem to be any reason why Fire Geckos should not be affected by Animal Friend. All other gecko variants are affected by it, and the existence of a Legendary Fire Gecko shouldn't exclude it either, since the Legendary Night Stalker is also affected by it. Yao Guai are affected by it in Fallout 3, so it seems logical that it should carry over to Fallout New Vegas.

As an added bonus, I removed certain special creatures from the Animal Friend faction: Legendary Fire Gecko, Legendary Night Stalker, Shadis, Ghost of She, Ghost of She clones, Ghost of She cubs, and the Yao Guai used for the scripted intro. I felt like Animal Friend neutered the challenge of these creatures, so I opted to make them hostile, no matter what.

Against All Tyrants
  • Gaius Magnus

He is a named Legion member. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Armed For Bear
  • Ranger Stevens
  • Colonel Royez

Ranger Stevens seems like an odd oversight, probably because he's only helpful if you have Animal Friend. Colonel Royez wasn't added to this challenge, most likely because of DLCs not being able to communicate with each other.

The Same Could Be Said of All Religious Weapons
  • Esther

Again, this seems like an odd oversight considering Esther was in Gun Runners' Arsenal. The weapon seems to be named after the Biblical princess Esther, so it should be part of this challenge.

The main file requires Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, and Gun Runners' Arsenal. I have also included each individual perk/challenge change as optional files. Pyromaniac tweaks requires Dead Money, Against All Tyrants and Armed For Bear tweaks require Lonesome Road and Gun Runners' Arsenal, Religious Weapons tweaks requires Gun Runners' Arsenal, and Animal Friend tweaks requires Honest Hears and Old World Blues.

The main file, Religious Weapons tweaks, and Animal Friend tweaks all require JIP NVSE. The main and Religious Weapons files also account for the description change from YUP (which adds A Light Shining in Darkness).
