PostSubject: [FNV] Brutal Fallout   Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:33 am

So I'm making a mod for Fallout New Vegas to make it more difficult and interesting. I'm gonna make a list of things I want to change. If you have any suggestions do tell!

1) Body Part Based Damage: For your player you take: 5x damage to head, 1.5x damage to arms, vanilla damage to legs, 2.5x damage to torso.
2) Enemy Rebalances: Example: Now feral ghouls are super zombies. 20x damage to head(reduced for higher tier ghouls) and severely reduced damage to all other limps(some over 5 times more resistant to damage. Also feral ghouls have had an increase of walking speed(increasing with each rank of ghoul.
3) Ingestable Rebalances. Example: Stimpacks now restore more hp but over a much larger length of time(vanilla 5hp in 6 secs, mod 2 hp in 30 seconds, like Fallout 4). Another example is Psycho now gives you a 25% DR boost like in Fallout 4.
4) Melee Weapon Rebalances: Things like knifes won't make everyone sponges.
5) Carry Weight Reduced: 75 Carry Weight instead of the Vanilla 150. Also +5 for each strength instead of 10.

Any suggestions?

I don't know man, Fallout is already pretty fucking brutal. Get shot in the foot with a silenced .22 and your whole body explodes in a gut strewn blood sausage paste. Not to mention there's bloody mess and "them's good eatin'". How does one get more brutal than that?

I'm confused. Its a mod that makes the game harder. You mention the 22 pistol that does like 4 damage and can't kill anything(Idk what this has to do with my post). Also you mention bloody mess but that has nothing to do with my mod lol. Also Thems Good Eating is just a brokenly op perk. Not trying to be an ass haha, but I'm confused by what your point is TongueTril

Sorry man, I thought you meant something akin to brutal doom. Jsawyer+RWD might be what you're looking for. Maybe not exactly but it's a start. I'd be happy to help you with any mod you're looking to make though.

HAHA! Actually when I was thinking of a name I thought of brutal doom. And yeah I've tried both. Not a fan of Jsawyer. RWD is great though. I'm just doing a few extra things like decreased carry weight, changes to enemys, and changes to consumables. Changing a lot of chems to their FO4 counterparts. For example now Radaway gives you much more rad reduction, however on Hardcore it severely dehydrates you.

EDIT: And yeah I did that with my ghouls as well. Headshots are great, anywhere else is close to useless. Also they are really fast. Hoping to make most of the creatures uniquely OP but fair. Each with some sort of weakness, such as a really weak limb to slow them down.

That's actually pretty simple. I'm no GECK guru but I'm sure I could implement most of those pretty easily. So long as it's just numeric value changes and nothing involving a script I can help you out when I get home and have access to my computer.

I've actually figured most of it out. I could use help with balancing though. Can you think of any enemys that were really useless in vanilla? Also weapons that were so bad they were unusable.

Well I don't know about useless enemies but I know plenty of bullet sponges. Though RWD pretty much takes care of most of that. Unless you count Geckos and radscorps which are only meant for target practice for new players.
And there are a ton of weapons that SEEM useless until you do a Luck playthrough. 10 Luck + Ratslayer = WEW. LAD.

As long as you don't make deathclaws fly, and give Cazadors stealth boys, I think you should be alright on balance. Though I don't know too much of the specifics of the mod you're looking to have outside of what you posted so I can't say for sure.

Balance can be kind of tricky; for example, Project Nevada's run feature is great but makes many of the fights escapable when they shouldn't be.

Again, not EXACTLY what you're looking for but it will at least help with the speed problem you have with ghouls:

Yeah I do luck playthroughs as well. Laser Rifle, 10 luck, laser commander, laser challenge perk, Josh's clothes, beam spliter, you 100% crit lol. Do you know where the settings are for reload speed? I'm trying to tone it down for high agility.

I agree with the run thing. I use the mod animations. Then again just standing on a rock is OP lol. I'm probably gonna balance it with a sprint mod in mind.

How would this compare to Jsawyer? I've never used it myself, or even played on hardcore mode, but I was considering using Jsawyer for my next playthrough.

Jsawyer is only like 50% harder. Mostly just rebalance the game. I'm going for realistic damage and balancing things based off of 8 years playing the game. I listed most of my changes above.

Personally I always run hardcore on very hard. However everything either dies instantly or are bullet sponges. Anti Material Rifle is literal garbage on very hard. I'll probably do an entire play through once I finish my beta then balance again accordingly. Then release. First version should be done by the end of the week.
