Liam Neeson ghoul, that would be quite funny. Perhaps he can be a mysterious stranger replacer, and instead of the music when he appears, you would hear I will find you and kill you.

Nah, I'd rather go full blown companion. A stranger replacement would get boring after a while.

I guess, if you can get enough dialogue. The companion could have a quest to save his daughter, similar to the movie.

For NV, I think Boxcars would be a hilarious companion. You could tailor some profanity-filled dialogue out of his existing lines, I actually posted a whole lot of examples into some old thread, you could even go as far as make him comment on locations, and he already has the perfect recruitment dialogue. His excessive cursing could be used as combat dialogue. You'd need a bunch of medical equipment and a Medicine check of, say, 50 to recruit him.

I also agree on No-Bark, just imagine the combat dialogue "Commie ghosts! I'll never talk!"

@Diegonom @Overdone There's also a companion mod for Benny

Joshua Graham and/or Daniel could be recruitable after completing Honest Hearts, possibly depending on the choices you made during HH. Though for it to be lore-friendly and immersive you'd have to possibly create a new worldspace (If the tribals migrated through the passage, Daniel and Joshua(?) goes with them). Adding a little event for going to Caesar's camp with Joshua would be great. For Daniel you could earn "companion points" as with Boone by helping the poor and sick.

For evil characters, they could have Mortimer as a companion after serving the White Gloves human meat. I mean, it's possible to lose a companion during this quest permanently, so it would only make sense to reward you with a new one. His combat dialogue would consist of calling the enemies "barbarous" etc. can't remember all his dialogue. He could also give you recipes for preparing human meat in a special way, he is a cannibal after all.

That's all of my ideas.

All those ideas sound amazing. I especially like your idea of having Boxcars as a companion, and the fact that you would have to fix his legs before you can hire him. lol

@damcall

Thanks Vault boy Smile

I'm kind of urged to learn making companion wheels and functional dialogue, maybe quests even. Probably isn't that hard. I won't be releasing any complete companion mods anytime soon though, not with all the other little mod projects I'm working on, as well as being busy with life.

There's plenty of great concepts in these threads, and it makes me think. Maybe it could be possible to produce these kind of custom companions in little teams or something, if people are interested in the concepts. Making one companion successfully would mean they can easily release more, too. I don't think that's too far fetched, there's plenty of talent around here as well as interest in modding. I can totally see it - people presenting concepts and ideas to each other for a companion many would like to see, making a plan for how to actually make it happen in the GECK, and making it happen.

@Alex10006
Yes, you could do that, but a companion mod is usually more immersive and enjoyable when it has dialogue and maybe a quest. Those are features every popular companion mod has.

@Alex10006

Well, here's a Colonel Autumn companion mod I found, it's for Fallout 3 though, not sure if you meant New Vegas or not.

MUGGY NO DOUBT! One of my favorite characters in F:NV besides Ulysses, Josh Graham, and Lonesome Road EDE (funny that they are all DLC characters)

I've always liked Sunny Smiles and her happy go lucky attitude. I would have loved for the vanilla game to have had her as an option to be a companion. I really feel like she would have some interesting opinions and advice on how to handle the chaotic world of Fallout. There are a few mods out that make her a companion but it would be so cool if she had a full story like Willow did in her mod.

I agree with sunny smiles. I also wish that they made moira brown a companion.

1. I think Vulpes would've been an interesting companion. He's a master of disguise so you could take him into NCR territory without everyone turning hostile.

4. Any of the 1st Recon.

I use JIP Companions and have used many of NPC's as companions.  Back in the day I used to use the Remote Control Companion from Nexus.  [I don't know when I can post a link here.] And JIP Companions.  Here are their exact names at nexus: Remote Control Companions by b3w4r3 and JIP Companions Command and Control by jazzisparis.  Even the Cortex Scrambler works fine but I use either JIP or RC with the cortex scrambler.

Vulpes doesn't work well because there's actually 3 of him.  The one in Nipton, the one you meet on The Strip and the one at the Fort.  So if you do use him as a companion at some point he will disappear.  Ringo is another one.  If you pick him up as a companion in Goodsprings and he's with you when you get to the Crimson Caravan he'll disappear.  I'm not sure if he pops up inside as the 'other' Ringo, I closed out without saving and dismissed him before I went inside.  Then he was there to greet me.

I've used Bitterroot from the 1st Recon.  He's awesome!  Lt Hayes is my all time favorite 'forced' companion.  For some reason his stats level outrageously and he's very powerful when I have him.  You'll need to setessential to your companions though, only Bethesda companions are made essential by mods, not forced ones like the way I use them.

My 2 most favorite companions I always use are Scrambler from the NCRCF prison and Lt Hayes.  Scrambler isn't very strong but he's really cool to have, he uses spiked knuckles but I give him the Love and Hate set from Bonnie Springs.

Other 'forced' companions I use a lot are Jessup from the Great Khans, All 5 fiends, Violet, Cook-Cook, Motor Runner, Driver Nephi and Duke.  I play a ton of raiders and always use these guys.  For my legion guy I currently have Dead Sea as a companion but I have to keep him out of his Legion gear so he's wearing Merc Vetreran armor.  Make sure to check on some of these NPC's before grabbing them, some of them have very low levels like Joe Cobb.  He's only level 2, no wonder he's so easy to kill!

Ranger Jackson is another favorite of mine.  He's a great shot as well as Jules from Westside.  One of my classiest compaion set was when I used Mr Swank, Lt Hayes, Boone, Eddie from the Powder Gangers and Ringo and dressed them all in [Moraelin Professionals Suits 1_14 by Moraelin] and they looked so awesome!  I've used the Boomer Munitions Manager as a companion, he's awesome!  I've even had Boxcars but he's just too weak (level 3).
