About this mod

Armor fit for a post-apocalyptic wasteland Courier.

Permissions and credits

The Courier
armor was inspired by a Reddit post I saw by u/TheGeeksterChief. This armor, its variants, helmet and scarves are obtainable for free in a footlocker behind Doc Mitchell's house (see screenshot for location). Armors were tested with vanilla male/female bodies. Expect some clipping, especially with the harness and holstered weapons. Preferably install via a mod manager such as Mod Organizer 2 or Vortex. (Users have reported errors when installing with FOMM and NMM). 

Main File includes:

  • The Courier Armor
  • The Courier Armor with Harness
  • Helmet
  • Red, Green, and Dirty multicolored Scarves with tucked-in versions as well

Available Patches:

Optional Files:
  • Community Project - adds several custom helmet and armor options designed by Nexus users like you!
  • Lore Friendly - makes the "harnessed" armor obtainable in a more lore friendly way and alters armor stats to be more in-line with vanilla armors. Armor is categorized as "medium" armor and will overwrite armor type choice from main file. Look east of Primm near "The Prospector's Den." Credit to Nexus user layerkayk for creating this optional version of the mod.
SPOILER ALERT, LOCATION of Lore Friendly Armor

  • No Bright Helmet Visor - removes the bright red or green helmet visor color from the "The Courier" helmet, leaving a darker, more muted colored glass look.

  • Choose from a variety of styles, textures, patterns, and helmet options.
  • If you want to change any options, just reinstall mod, make different selections in the installer, and new choices will appear instantly.

Known Bugs
  • Minor issue: Lower part of the jacket and sleeves become invisible in 3rd Person when partially submerged in waist deep water and viewed from above the water line. Unknown what is the cause or how to fix.

See Changelog for version info

This mod would not be possible without the generosity of the wonderful mod authors here on Nexus.
