The most important status update since the beginning of russian invasion.

As many of you know, I'm Ukrainian. While the world now knows: the victory of Ukraine is only a matter of time, the terrorist state of russia, in denial of this, resorted to thing it does best - terrorism. It launches dozens of missiles not at our military bases, but at critical energy infrastructure.

My last blackout lasted almost 3 days - 3 days without electricity, water and heating at winter. During blackouts, not only basic things like shower or cooking are not available for me, but I also can't work - work to bring you new content. Stress because of the war and my inborn health issues also didn't become better during this time.

With your help, I can buy a powerful generator, enough fuel and fix my health with a pretty simple surgery, on which I simply don't have funds now. If you want to support me in this time, darkest since the beginning of the invasion - hop at my Patreon page to help me gather enough funds - to be able to get through this winter despite the blackouts.

Thank you 💖 ✊

SGO for New Vegas Seven Sins ENB Nevada Combat LCT for Witcher 3

Welcome to Sini's mods hub - a single page where you can download all my mods from. You can navigate between them using the bar to the right. Read their descriptions, download and enjoy :)

Welcome! SGO for NV is a definitive Perk, Enemy and Balance overhaul, designed to make game much more challenging, rewarding and fun - aiming to give the same ultimate renovation to NV gameplay as my modding guide is able to help you with modding it in general. From combat to economy, it utilizes the best of NV engine and NVSE functions. It also adds new lore-friendly mechanics and over 140 new perks/traits to the game to greatly improve the amount and depth of character builds, allowing you to develop unique characters and playstyles not available before in vanilla game - while keeping them balanced. The philosophy of SGO is to not break the atmosphere and gameplay of New Vegas, but let you enjoy it much more rewarding, refreshed way, allowing you to build much more interesting playstyles and character archetypes - which, in return, will have new challenges due to hundreds of rebalanced NPCs, more unique/legendary creatures to encounter and population additions here and there, challenging combat and over 30 unique scripted bossfights (which, in addition to unique abilities also often have brand new immersive visuals), leading to more immersive feeling of the game. There are also new food recipes, achievements and more. What it is exactly about and what's included? See below:

Q: Could it happen I have seen your work before?
A: Probably :) Most likely on my YT channel - feel free to subscribe to it to stay tuned :)

Q: What is SGO about? Can you explain?
A: Sure! Take a seat, friend. First of all, let me voice a few questions. Why super mutants have barely more health than skinny NCR recruit? Why they also have barely more stamina than RATS and can be easily knocked down in a few shots? Why Agility doesn't affect movement speed, directly contradicting ingame description? Why Paladin Ramos, Brotherhood chief of security, aimed with Gauss Rifle, has almost ZERO Energy Weapons skill? Why bloatfly boss has twice more health then legendary DEATHCLAW? How come that such inredibly fast predators such as Nightstalkers move no faster than coyotes and or average human? How the hell the average joe in Hardcore Mode can survive 17 DAYS without sleep? Why bosses and legendary creatures don't have any unique abilities and are just spongy variants or regular creatures? Why the endgame rivals, the supreme champions or major factions like Legate Lanius, are just a bit stronger than their officers? Why lvl 30 character have SO much hitpoints, that he or she, NAKED, without a single protective skill, can survive THREE deathclaw hits? Why random prospectors had twice more health then most of NCR/Legion soldiers? Why plasma-related perks improvements are so poor compared to laser ones, and why melee has so low amount of specialization perks? And so on - many other moments that you also may have thought or often didn't even knew about.
Inconsistencies of game balance, Irrationality in game logic and Scarcity in character builds, as well as in amount of really interesting boss fights. This is what Sinitar's Gameplay Overhaul for New Vegas, or just SGO, aims to fix and improve. Its design easily allows it to fit both "vanilla+" and heavy-modded setups, be the only gameplay mod in your setup or play nicely together with tons of others.

I do not give a permission to re-use or re-upload this mod. If you want to use it for your own project - contact me first.

Q: Ok, so what is changed?
A: SGO can be devided into the a few segments.

NVSE is here
JIP LN NVSE is here
JohnnyGuitar NVSE is here
YUP is here
YUP is not [technically] required, but it's absolutely [essential] mod no matter what mod setup you're planning to have, as it's only fixes countles, gazillions of bugs in vanilla game. Take it.
Also make sure to implement stability and UI sections of the New Vegas U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E. modding guide, even if SGO will be the only gameplay mod in your setup - doign this will ensure your game will be fully stable.
Lastly, SGO will work not depending either you're playing with Hardcore Mode (ingame survival mode option which makes game much more realistic, making the feeling of the Wasteland more real - also, it doens't have to do anything with game basic difficulty settings itself, it's separate) or without it - but, at Hardcore Mode, SGO will shine even better as some of its changes were made for Hardcore Mode features as well (including some of perks which are available only on Hardcore). If you are always playing NV with it - you'll be greatly pleased, if you didn't play with it before - just try it, and you'll ask yourself why haven't you done that earlier :)

Mod showcases:

General Balance Changes:

- Repair, as a skill, was probably the most underdeveloped skill in the game. Yes, it had Jury Rigging but...that's it. Other skills in NV usually have several gameplay mechanics they affect on, and from 4 to 8 perks, directly or at least spiritually related. Repair has whole 2 perks. This felt somewhat unfair. SGO gives a new life to it by adding 6 brand new perks which require certain level of Repair and give you both utility and combat benefits, allowing you to play as a true technician from both roleplay and character build perspective
- Healing actual medicine items (all types of stimpaks, healing powders etc) strength was nerfed slightly
- Barter formula was greatly rebalanced. Initially, buying is much more expensive and selling won't give you much, but effect of Barter skill on this was greatly improved, to give at some sense. New Barter-related perk was added.
- Vendor caps amount was slightly decreased. No more selling 2 days of your loot to a single trader
- Repair cost is twice cheaper (vanilla repair cost was ridiculous TWICE as expensive as item price, meaning for full repair you could buy 2 same items in perfect condition, aha)
- Value of some items was rebalanced to prevent money exploits
- Karma and reputation gain/loss was rebalanced to make actually interesting. No more becoming a saint after making 3 quests, but also no more becoming a faction #1 enemy for killing a single person (yeah it was that ridiculous - remember killing Vulpes Inculta in Nipton and instantly becoming vilified by the Legion or killing single NCR officer and becoming vilified too - no more)
- Some ammo and junk crafting recipes were rebalanced
- All melee weapons reach was made rational (some 1h visually shorter vanilla items had longer reach than 2h swords, aha)
- You gain 5 less Skill Points per level (5 base instead of 10, plus INT/2, this was not changed). You was able to literally raise all your skills to 100 at level 35 or so, even without maxed INT and skillbooks. Now, skill points system and skill points oriented perks actually have sense
- Poison Resistance multiplier lowered. No more getting half of maximum Poison Resistance just from Endurance
- Poison Resistance buff from Blood Shield was reduced
- Weapon Binding Ritual now actually has working perception bonus and limbs damage ignore during its duration. On the other hand, health damage effect was fixed too and it damages you for 2 dmg per second during whole 2 minutes duration - a double-edged effect as it should be
- Action Point cost for all weapons was increased to balance V.A.T.S. and make it less bloody overpowered. Some difficulty mods disable V.A.T.S. completely, but once again, I prefer to give player balance and flexibility - while you will be able to make significantly less attack in V.A.T.S. by default, AP cost related perks were strengthened and new V.A.T.S. related perks were added - for those who prefer such a playstyle. As any other specialized builds, V.A.T.S build will be harder to play in the beginning, but stronger and more rewarding in the end, compared to vanilla game
- Many other chems were balanced - initial duration was reduced, making chem-oriented perks more important (new chem-oriented perks were added too to make this more rewarding in return)
- Stealth Boy duration time was reduced and it doesn't magically stops enemies from attacking you when activated. In return, new Stealh Boy related perk was added which may give you new, tremendous benefits...
- Plethora of inconsistencies/oversights between various consumables was fixed/improved too. Why Large Wasteland Tequila had same weight as its lil variant? Or weightless Sierra Madre Martini? On the other hand, ant nectar is rich for nutrients and liquid, and is used by many modern tribes as drink/food. So it now gives (little, to not break balance, but plesant for immersion) dehydration restoration effect. Etc - you got the idea.
- Radiation Accumulation is 2 times faster than in vanilla
- Radiation Accumulation when walking/swimming in irradiated water in increased
- Starvation Accumulation is 3 times faster than in vanilla (was really slow in vanilla)
- Sleep Deprivation Accumulation is 4 times faster than in vanilla (this was a pure joke - in vanilla you was able to survive 17 days without sleep, now it's ~4.5 days to get to critical sleep deprivation stage)
- Dehydration Accumulation is 1.7 times faster than in vanilla (it was pretty ok, so raised this just a bit)
- Starting weapon spread is slightly bigger with all ranged weapons
- Starting V.A.T.S. hit chance is slightly lower with all ranged weapons
- Weapons and armors degrade slightly faster than in vanilla
- Carry Weight rebalanced - 50 base and 20 mutilplier instead of 150 base and 10 multiplier - same 250 in total at 10 STR
- Action Points rebalanced - 35 base (instead of 65), 6 multiplier (instead of 3) - same 95 in total. Both CW and AP now have much greater attribute influence
- Hit Points rebalanced - 10 Endurance multiplier (was 20) and 3 Level multiplier (was 5). No more having twice more HP than everyone else just because
- Limb Damage increased
- Penalties to accuracy with weapons when limbs are crippled made heavier
- Crippled leg/s movement speed is much slower (0.7 and 0.4 instead of 0.85 and 0.75). How can one run jus a bit slowly with both broken legs? Both this and change above are affecting both you and NPCs
- NPCs Endurance HP multiplier increased (from 5 to 7)
- Player Endurance HP multiplier decreased (from 20 to 10 - no more twice/trice HP as enemies just because you're Courier)
- DR-increasing chem effects were reduced: Med-X and Slasher from 25% to 20%, Battle Brew from 35% to 25% - no more tanking deathclaws for minutes without healing having protection cap from chems only. On the other hand, SGO introduces several new perks, through which you can gain DR bonuses permanently. This approach still makes you possible to achieve the DR cap (and even overcap) - but in more rewarding and balanced way which directly involves character builds and not just 2 buttons chem-spamming
- Level ups require around as twice as more experience
- All types of stimpaks now have weight. It's really tiny though - just a bit more than weightless. Other weightless chems (like Med-X, Buffout, Jet etc) are still weightless
- Tagged skills are now work like in classic FO games - they don't give immediate 15 skill bonus, but each point invested gives twice as much instead
- Some armors DT and other stats was rebalanced. Remember the raggy lobotomite mask which had more DT than Riot Helmet? Or Bounty Hunter Duster which had 6 DT while literally same looking Regulator Duster had zero DT? Weightless Desert Ranger Helmet? How the hell armored vault jumpsuit gives 2 more DT then leather armor (yeah, it has shoulderpad but it's still same very clothing). Joshua Graham armor and Courier Duster DT values were swapped to properly represent the best light armor you can receive for completing hardest game DLC (so J.G. armor now has 13 DT and C.D. has 15). Well, you got it
- Some armors classes were logically changed. Gannon family Tesla armor is now heavy instead of medium (it's a power armor, goddammit), Sierra Madre armor is medium (instead of light), etc
- Around 40 armors/headgears were rebalanced to give more logical bonuses. For example, Stealth Suit MK II is now light armor and so has lower DT and Assassin Suit has slightly lower DT but better bonuses, Atomic tri-radii-oscillator (which is basically ethereal) doesn't give same DT as Ranger Helmet, Lonesome Road dusters stats were increased to represent armor from hardest endgame DLC properly, etc [new in 3.0]
- Food doesn't heal [new in 3.0]
- Respective loading screens texts were updated to represent the changes properly
Combat Changes:

- Enemies will notice/attack you from bigger distance when you start shooting (but not act like they have sonars in their pocket)
- Enemies will flee on bigger distances and search for cover more actively (but not running 5km away)
- Enemies will dodge bullets much less often
- Enemies will be less "snipers"
- Enemies will search you in bigger radius
- Enemies will "rethink" their will to return to fight faster
- Enemies will turn in your direction faster
- Enemies will loot bodies and switch weapons more often
- Weapons (for both you and NPCs) will jam more frequently on both reloading and shooting, depending on condition
- Melee enemies will be more agressive and perform power attacks more often
- Knockdown from enemies to you will be more dangerous (but not that hard, just a little stronger than in vanilla)
- Creatures reach was made a bit more logical
- Melee weapons reach is fixed via one lighweight script, ensuring compatibility with all weapon mods
- Grenades bounce time was made more realistic
- Burning damage increased
- Amount of enemies that can be present in combat at the same time was increased
- Combat styles for each enemy will be more logical. Melee enemies will less likely to free (as melee is their biggest advantage), snipers will hide more often, super mutants will be more savage, etc
- Weapon condition affects it's attack speed 50% higher (50% higher not in absolute value, don't worry, but 50% higher compared to the original (vanilla) penalty - degraded weapons will attack slower than it was in vanilla), so together with more realistic jamming chances, keeping your weapon repaired is more important now [new in 3.0]
New Gameplay Mechanics:

- Agility now actually affects your movement speed (you're moving faster if Agility > 5 an slower if Agility < 5)
- Perception affects your accuracy with [all] weapons in and outside V.A.T.S. (penalties and bonuses, same as with Agility). Effect is smaller than similar weapon skills effect - but still logical and plesant
- Strength affects throwing velocity and range - giving bonuses at Strength above 5 and penalties at Strength below 5
- Some new misc recipes (for example, making flamer fuel from different types of alcohol) and new special food recipes you can open via perks and high survival skills levels
- New legendary and unique creatures to meet and fight - and sometimes even get perks for slaying them!
- Dynamic and immersive conditions affecting the prices besides barter formula. Are you in Strip? Prices are higher. Having [extremely] low or high Charisma will result in higher/lower prices too, independently on your Barter skill (cmon, super sexy lad or gal will always have effect from charming smile). Extremely high/low Luck will also affect this. Approaching a merchant with a gun pointed on him? What you would expect, a discount? There are many other conditions which all stack with each other, meaning depending on situation you can have higher or lower prices. This, in total, gives a more "alive" feeling of economy, as it's gets effected more not only by your attributes, but by other logical conditions too. At the same time, this feature is not affecting performance at all even with heavy-modded setup.
- Karma received new gameplay features, and it now directly affects your character in form of special perks which you receive automatically. Covers Neutral, Good and Bad karma, as well as all levels of it
- With a [single] special perk (S.K.I.L.L.F.U.L.) taken, [each] of skills will be giving you increasing, small yet plesant bonuses, depending on skill level. Slightly more damage with guns depending on Guns skill, lesser Action Point cost depending on Science skill, more experience gained depending on Survival skill, faster sneaking depending on Sneak skill and so on. This is somewhat inspiread by bonuses you receive at 25-50-75-100 skill level in TES: Oblivion. Each separate bonus from certain skill may look not that much worthy of spending a perk point - but remember that you will be receiving bonuses from [all] skills, passively, when achieving certain level of mastery. Interesting huh?
- Intelligence now slightly affects XP gained - 2% more XP per Int point > 5 and 3% less XP per Int point < 5, resulting in max 10% more XP at 10 Int and 12% less XP at 1 Int [new in 3.0]
- Barter now slightly affects repair cost - for instance, at 20 Barter you'll get 4% repair cost dicount, at 45 Barter - 9% discount, and at 100 Barter you'll get a maximum 20% discount [new in 3.0]
- Respective loading screens texts were updated to represent the changes properly
Changed/Fixed/Balanced Vanilla Perks:

- Travel Light, Light Touch and Tunnel Runner perks now work properly with ALL armors (condition binded to armor type, not armor name) - which ensures automatic armor mods compatibility.
- Demolition Expert now has 2 ranks instead of 3, making it more balanced compared to other damage related perks
- Better Criticals doesn't work on sneak attacks. It wasn't directly a bug, but likely a leftover - sneak attack damage is already x2 for ranged and x5 for melee weapons, and it has own damage related perks.
- Intense Training was bloody OP. You was able to take it unlimited amount of times for any attribute. Now you can take it only once per attribute
- Explorer perk was plainly useless to anyone experienced with the game. Now it adds a small 5% movement speed bonus in addition to vanilla effect
- Nerg Rage was useless. 20% health condition is too low, and absolutely useless in modded game when your combat is harder and faster. Health condition is now 35%, DT bonus was changed to DR bonus to make it useful at late game too, and STR bonus was changed to damage and AP regen bonus actually useful in combat
- Terrifying Presense now also provides a little discount from merchants. They won't argue, right?
- Night Person was useless. Slight bonus to threat detection and possible dialogues influence with miserable chance (and only if your Int/Per are not high enough already). SPECIAL bonuses were removed, and with perk taken you now moving 10% faster, gaing 5% more XP and chems last 15% longer when the sun is down. Additionally, new night-dependant perks were added - and they require Night Person to be taken
- Solar Powered boost of Strength (which often caused nothing but headache due to perk effect conditions) was changed to something more useful. Health regen bonus was not changed
- Jury Rigging is one of the best perks in the game. Hardcore overhauls usually disable it completely to maintain game economy balance - but I don't see this as a correct solution. It won't break economy with SGO aconomy tweaks and recommended mods usage, but it's still incredibly high-tier perk, and that's why its requirements were expanded - it now requries 100 Repair and two new Repair-based perks, Weaponsmith and Armorsmith.
- All 4 sex-related perks (Lady Killer, Comfirmed Bachelor, Black Widow and Cherchez La Femme) damage bonus is lowered from 10% to 5%. Their roleplay bonuses were already fun, and 10% free damage was a bit too much
- Chem Resistant effect is now trice less addiction chance instead of twice lesser one. General availability of Doctors and Fixers was making 50% addiction resistance bonus only not much a worthy investment
- Three "ultimate" game perks (Ain't Like That Now, Just Lucky I'm Alive and Thought You Died) were rebalanced. First of all, level requirement is lowered from lvl 50 to 40. What sense of taking top-tier perks when you can't even level up anymore? This also fits the slower leveling better. Secondly, one of the effects, namely the "critical hits immunity" bonus that was literally the same in all 3 perks, was removed. Instead, each perk received own distinct bonus - and this bonus is directly affected by your karma [after] you've taken the perk. I.e. two other bonuses will take effect no matter what, same as in vanilla game. But third one will take effect only if you'll keep respective bad/neutral/good karma (also, effect will be stronger the higher/lower karma is for good/bad karma)
- Freakin' useless Quick Draw perk was removed. Instead, a new perk was introduced (listed in next section)
- Cowboy perk now requires 25 Melee instead of 45 and gives 20% dmg bonus instead of 25
- Arcade's Better Healing perk was slightly nerfed
- Math Wrath and Beautiful Beatdown (unarmed challenge perks) effects were improved from 10% to 15%
- Some challenge perks bonuses were slightly nerfed
- Elijah's Last Words and Elijah's Ramblings nerfed - 25% attack speed bonus to Veronica instead of 50% and 25% critical damage bonus to player instead of 50% respectively
- In Shining Armor now actually works
- And Stay Back knockdown chance per pellet reduced from 10% to 5%
- Eye For Eye per limb damage bonus increased from 10% to 15%
- Old Wold Blues perks (Brainless, Heartless, Spinless, Big Brained, Cardiac Arrest, Reinforced Spine) were rebalanced to be less overpowered as for perks you basically receive for free, yet still be very useful
- Logan's Loophole received a lilttle healing items effect bonus to give better sense choosing it over improved Chem Resistant perk
- Claustrophobia +/- S.P.E.C.I.A.L. effects were changed on bonus/penalty to running speed, AP regen and weapon accuracy. If you're about to panic in this tight cell, you definitely will think and aim less effective
- Super Slam knockdown chance was reduced
- Lifegiver, which had really puny effect, now gives gradually increasing HP bonus depending on player level - up to 80 HP at level 50 instead of static 30 HP bonus which was becoming a joke in the late game [new in 3.0]
- Hit the Deck was not quite useful and now also provides 50% protection from all self-inflicted damage on top [new in 3.0]
- Concentrated Fire perk now allows to take one more, ultimate VATS-related perk [new in 3.0]
- Sex-based perks (Lady Killer, Comfirmed Bachelor, Black Widow and Cherchez La Femme) damage bonus is double if you have respective sex-based SGO trait (Enclosing Magnetism for Black Widow/Lady Killer and Repulsive Magnetism for Comfirmed Bachelor/Cherchez La Femme) [new in 3.0]
- Plenty of other perks were slightly balanced/improved in terms of requirements for SGO philosophy, or just to fix irrational things. For example, Slayer which affected both unarmed and melee, could be opened only via Unarmed skill - now with Unarmed or Melee, same for many other melee perks, Center of Mass etc). Some high-level perks lvl requirement was made a bit lower to fit slower leveling etc
- Respective loading screens texts were updated to represent the changes properly
New Traits (the most yummy part begins).
Note: think first - maybe you don't want to know all the new stuff before playin the game, to make it more interesting? Your choice :P

- Acrobat: you jump twice as higher and can fall safely from higher spots, but you can carry less stuff and do less melee/unarmed damage
- Blind Determination: gain permanent boost to Damage Threshold, bonus limbs health, poison, fire and radiation resistances. In return, you gain severely less healing from all sources, 2 less Skill Points per level and traders have higher prices
- Gifted: classic FO trait is back! Get +1 to all S.P.E.C.I.A.L. but also receive all Skills penalty and receive less Skill Points per level
- Cautious Gunner: your weapon range is higher, but accuracy is lower

- Weekend Lover: you move, recover health and Action Points faster, as well as have +1 Strength and Charisma at Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but suffer same as penalties during the rest of the week
- Fast And Furious: attack and move faster, but do less damage and your action point regeneration speed is slower
- Silent Harvester: more damage and faster reload speed with silenced guns/energy weapons (or those having silencer/suppressor mod installed). Less damage with all other weapons. Compatible with WMX
- Energy Brick: Action Points don't regenerate in combat. AP cost is 2.5 times lower and killing an enemy in V.A.T.S. restores 25 AP
- Whizzbang Trickster: all grenade rifles/launchers and rocket/nuke launchers now have critical damage modifier and attack faster. Regular damage, equip and reloading speed with these weapons are lower
- Natty Collector: weapons and armors degrade slower, but in return ranged weapons reload slower, melee weapons attack slower and you move slightly slower in any armor
- Inhibited Devastator: all throwing weapons, like grenades or spears, fly much slower, but all grenades and mines deal more damage
- Live Short, Perk Hard!: gain a perk each level instead of once per two levels, but get a severe Skill Points received penalty
- Nictophobia: when your Pip-Boy lights are on, you are more confident, dealing more damage and having Perception bonus - while dealing less damage and suffering Perception penalty when lights are off
- Hit Or Die: glass cannon trait - deal severely more damage, but your limbs are extremely fragile and your Damage Threshold is permanently and greatly reduced
- Shy Schizophrenic: lower Speech and Barter skills. Agility penalty while [not] under effect of a Stealth Boy. While [under effect] of a Stealth Boy, you receive noticeable combat and utility bonuses
- Masochist: have increased combat stats and luck below 75% health and lose the same when your health is above 75%
- Tenderling: trait with same effects yet HP condition vice versa to Masochist
- Crucifixion Survivor: gain slight DT bonus and your limbs are harder to cripple, but you move slower and healing items are less effective due to infections backwash
- Misanthrope: when you have companions in party, all S.P.E.C.I.A.L. are decreased by 1 and you move slower. No instant bonuses, but allows to get Lone Wolf perk later
- Pacifist: get greatly better prices, bonus to Speech, Barter, Medicine and Science and bonus Action Points. In return, you receive more damage in combat, do less damage, equip weapons slower and your limbs are more easily crippled
- Shelling Shipping: explosives flies further and makes more damage, but has twice smaller explosion radius
- Veteran Brawler: gain +2 Damage Threshold, +3 bonus damage and bonus to criticals strength with melee and unarmed weapons. In return, your guns/energy weapons deal less damage, are greatly less accurate and require much more AP to use, and you move slower
- Repulsive Magnetism: do more damage to enemies of same sex and restore AP for killing them. In return, they do more damage to you as well and have a higher chance to critically hit you
- Enclosing Magnetism: do more damage to enemies of opposite sex and restore AP for killing them. In return, they do more damage to you as well and have a higher chance to critically hit you
- Marathoner: running speed out of combat is faster, but slower in combat [new in 3.0]
- Tech Purist: gain a bonus to Perception and Survival, but V.A.T.S. is not usable. Disables the VATS-related perks, asides from those related to AP only (like Action Boy/Girl perk, to ensure trait won't affect your usage of sprint mods) and those which give bonuses not only in V.A.T.S. [new in 3.0]
- Discovery Thirst: a partial "alternative XP system", roleplaying trait - all experience gained from killing and quests is halved, but experience gained from discovering new locations, hacking terminals and picking locks is tripled, which proves even more useful in a modded game as you will definitely have much more of those things in your game [new in 3.0]
- Daring Weakling: [attention] - this is the only trait in the mod that's made mostly for challenge - take it as something you want to take for "New Game+" effect. When you're playing in Hardcore mode, your damage, speed, critical chance, AP regen and Skill Points gained are reduced, while damage taken, limbs damage and weapon degradation are increased. Penalties are moderate - not tiny yet not severe, but will make wakthrough even harder. No benefits. Absolutely don't take if it's your first run with SGO. Usually, you'd never want to take it at all, as SGO already makes game much more challenging. But ofc, it's up to you :P

Due to much bigger amount of traits (together with vanilla traits, there are 44 in total now with more to come), maximum traits amount to pick at character creation was increased from 2 to 3. This is still balanced, as new traits themselves are all "double-edged" (as traits should be, after all) too.
New Perks:
Note: think first - maybe you don't want to know all the new stuff before playin the game, to make it more interesting? Your choice :P

Besides new Traits, SGO adds around 130 new perks (meaning it practically more than doubles the amount of perks in the game, with more to come in future updates), ~100 from which you can take upon advancing a level, and ~30 perks you can receive as "trophies" (killing factions bosses & legendary creatures, karma bonuses, new challenges etc) - aiming on expanding depth of character builds, roleplay feeling and improving both early and late game. There are also plenty of unique situational or specialization perks. Ever wanted to make a walkthrough using mines only? Shi samurai? Unarmored berserker? Stealth Boy addict? Misanthrope and lone wolf? Expert in power armor? Acrobat? Robotic genius? Now it's possible - not only from roleplay perspective, but to build a fully competitive character build which was not possible in vanilla game. Be ready though - the more powerful the perk is, the higher (and often more) requirements it will have. In addition, SGO also adds new special perks to many bosses and unique enemies, making fighting them more challenging. This list has almost all of them (amount of new perks per level, not counting the hidden ones, is looking something like this atm) - besides trophy/achievement perks and few special perks which I want you to discover yourself :)

Weapon and armor specialization perks:
- Barbarian: bonus attack speed and knockdown chance (stacks with Super Slam) with [two-handed] melee weapons
- Duelist: bonus critical hit chance and damage with [one-handed] bladed or blunt melee weapons
- Smasher: bonus damage and ignore part of enemy DT (stacks with Piercing Strike) with [unarmed] weapons or bare-handed
- PlasM.A.N.I.A.C.: bonus attack speed and tiny chance to knock enemies down when using [plasma] weapons
- Savage Pitcher: you get +bonus to explosion radius and damage with all hand-thrown grenades and they fly farther and faster. Actions point cost for their usage is also lower
- Whistling Javelin : bonus damage, throwing velocity and critical chance with bladed throwing weapons (throwing spears/knives/hatchets, tomahawks etc)
- Surprise Layer: bonus damage and explosion range of your [mines]
- Unstable Spring: your [mines] can now critically explode, dealing additional damage and also receive a flat bonus chance to critically explode

- Lead Cutter: you're swinging melee weapons, be it a sword, pipe or bowie knife, not only with lighting speed, but also with falcon precision. If it wouldn't be hard to believe yourself, you'd say that you can sometimes deflect bullets with your unnatural swordsmanship

More to be added.

Trophy perks, new challenges achivements & consequences.

Obdisian made a great job with achievements and SGO is carrying this torch with a fresh approach. While vanilla game has enough of so called "challenges" - you need to make some action certain amount of times (like consume addictive chems, kill X creatures of same type etc) to receive reward - XP and sometimes perks, there's always good to have more of them, and this what's SGO does, adding 15 new challenges [new in 3.0] for you to uncover (from casual to ones really hard to start and complete). This said, killing of [specific] bosses often looks omitted in terms of gamemplay rewards. SGO adds (currently) around 30 new perks (few more were added in the latest update) which you will receive for slaying the toughest sons/daughters of the gun or most vicious monsters across the Mojave or achieving some others things. Killed dat Legendary Deathclaw? Reached the maximum positive or negative karma level? Don't forget to check out your Pip-Boy!
Additionally, killing noticeable persons (like factions leaders or top officers) will bring consequences, which will be added together with the "trophy" perks you receive for the kills. Doing Powder Gangers headhunting? Now you can get a bounty for their leaders heads from NCR. Or, if you killed NCR second man, isn't it quite expectable for NCR soldiers to be juuuuuust a bit mad on you about that, right?
NPC & Creatures Changes:

Generally, this means buffs or rarely nerfs to stats and attributes (no more powder gangers around NCRCF having 10 HP), new abilities - to make fights with bosses/officers/unique creatures more challenging and rewarding. In total, over 950 NPCs and over 550 creatures (both named and generic) were rebelanced/gained new unique abilities (officers/bosses/legendary and named creatures). For over 30 bosses/legendary creatures from this list, on top of rebalance, SGO adds scripted combat events based on lore and creture type/faction. Bosses can now apply debuffs to you, become enraged (temporary increasing speed/damage etc), call for help of "security", and do other things (I don't want to make too many spoilers) - sometimes multiple effects/actions combined. These new elements will make fights with bosses and unique enemies actually unique and unpredictable, forcing you to think tactically each time you'll be fighting with a next boss. Future updates will feature more of those. Some not yet fixed vanilla bugs with NPCs were fixed as well. Oh, and did I mention this covers all DLCs and adds new visuals to fights as well?

- Some high-level, most strong perks requirements were made more balanced, giving you a bit more flexibility in character build to pick them (read - a bit easier to get)
- Several types of monsters already affected by SGO, were rebalanced as well, in case they were too strong for their type/level
- Several dozens of other NPCs not covered yet, were rebalanced
- XP amount required for level up was made a bit smaller, so you'll level up a bit faster now, compared to previous mod version
- Battle Brew DR bonus increased from 20 to 25

- NPCs chance to miss is slightly higher compared to previous mod version (to balance NPCs "mad sniping skills" a bit more in favor of player)
- Improvements to some perks descriptions and corrections of typos

Q: I found a bug or have a suggestion for the mod. Where to put that?
A: Thank you! Please, drop a message in #suggestions_room at our Discord server

Q: Compatibility and/or superseded mods?
A: Click the "Show" button to see compatibility notes:

First of all - if you'll find some incompatibility between SGO and other mod which is not covered yet - please, report this to me in suggestion room at Discord server - don't ask for compatibility patches from conflicting mod author - SGO is a huge overhaul made by me, so I should be the one taking over compatibility moments if possible :)

YUP - fully compatible and a must have. Never play NV without YUP - it fixes such a huge amount of game bugs and leftovers that's simply a titanic work, and essential mod for any NV setup. Once again. Never play without YUP :)
Project Nevada - load SGO after PN Rebalance plugin to take over PN's hardcoded changes. It's changeable scripted parameters (like crippled legs speed, experience gained and all other parameters adjustable in MCM) will take over my mod effect. To ensure 100% compatibility make the next tweaks in MCM - disable Throwing Range setting in Character section of Rebalance module, as shown here, to make sure SGO values are taking over. Also setup the next values in PN's MCM settings (so they match SGO settings): player endurance HP mult - 10, player lvl HP mult - 3, NPC Endurance HP mult - 7, NPC lvl HP mult - 5, TAG bonus base - 0, TAG mult - 2, skill weapon damage influence - 25%, limb damage transfer - 100%, radiation gained - 250%, food healing - no, hunger inc - 350, thirst inc - 500, sleep inc - 250, survival-based rates - yes, maximum weapon damage penalty - 30%. Also make sure that PN's experience gain settings are not changed (set to 100%) as SGO already covers slower leveling.
JSawyer Ultimate - load SGO after JSU, but better (and strongly recommended) use one or another - two big overhauls used together doesn't always mean better, in this case.
Vicious Wastes - Difficulty Rebalance - load SGO after VW, but better (and strongly recommended for the same reason as above) use one or another, as without manual edits in xEdit, there will be some major conflicts.
More Perks (and any other mod that adds new perks) - [technically] you can use SGO together with such mods, but due to immense amount of perks in both SGO and other perk-adding mods, there can be just too many perks in your game (it's not a good thing) and some of them may be similar in their effects, which will be overwhelming and confusing. SGO already adds around 160 new perks, carefully caring about each skill and playstyle, it's more lightweight and bug-free (and if some bug is found, I'm always fixing it asap - read, supporting the mod actively) - so better to not use it together with mods which add a lot of perks. Small perk mods which adds a couple/few standalone perks should be fine generally - just look for the perks descritpion - maybe SGO already covers similar abilities.
Any perk and karma mods in general - similar to what is mentioned above, SGO's perk and karma changes/additions were made to be a better polished, balanced and bug-free alternative to existing mods of such type. If you're following my modding guide, you can skip perks and karma sections completely.
Cover Based Stealth Mechanics - fully compatible with its Stealth plugin while Stealth Boy plugin has two options for usage with SGO. For compatibility with it (i.e. 100% compatibility with the whole mod), simply use "SGO - CBSM version" [IF] you want to have Bashar's Stealth Boy mechanics (highly recommended), [or] disable its "Bash_Stealthboy" plugin [IF] you want to go fully with my mod changes (mine are closer to vanilla mechanics, but seriosuly, Bashar's changes are just great and I still strongly recommend you to use both his plugins and SGO version for it, to only get my perk bonuses which will work on top of Cover Based Stealth. Compatibility version of SGO doesn't containt any of CBSM scripts so it doesn't technically require it - just the special perk in SGO was adjusted to better fit CBSM).
NPCs Can Miss - fully compatible and very much recommended. Shares only 1 same record. Load NPCs Can Miss after SGO. Recommended version of NPCs Can Miss - "High Accuracy".
NPC Dynamic Combat Styles - compatible and recommended. Simply load this mod plugin after SGO plugin.
After War Nevada - if you want for SGO changes to take over AWN ones, simpyl load SGO after. But take into account that AWN is a complete gameplay overhaul and it's settings were made for reasons - so using SGO together with it is not recommended in first turn.
True Wasteland Economy - Technically compatible and will not cause any issues to your game - but, if using SGO and TWE together, economics may become ridiculously hard often - so my advice here is to use one or another [or] using TWE with everything but Misc module disabled (meaning you will disable even the core economy part of the mod, yes).
Interior Lighting Overhaul - patch available.
The Living Desert - patch available.
All "cosmetic" character overhauls (FCO/NV Redesigned/Dragbody NPC overhauls) - compatible via Bashed/Merged patches plus a bit of your time. Place SGO [after] character overhauls in load order, then build Bashed and Merged patches. Then, to ensure 100% compatibility, load SGO, character overhauls, Bashed & Merged patches in FNVEdit and go through each character and drag SGO's stats/abillities records to Bashed/Merged patch records for each affected NPC. Note: It may sound scary, but it's absolutely easy to do and simply will require a bit of your time to drag all needed records. You can, ofc, just delete NPC records from my mod (which will result in vanilla combat abilities of those NPCs) or don't use any NPC visual overhauls - but why not using both if you can? ;) Note: this procedure is very important - without it, if you will just load visual overhauls after SGO, NPCs won't have any new abilities and rebalance from SGO. Otherwise - they won't have improved look. If this will still be confusing for you - don't hesitate to ask for a help at our Discord community server :3
Fallout - New California - not compatible atm, but compatibility version will be made in future, for sure.
TTW - incompatible. No plans for compatibility version atm.
Melee Reach Fixed -  included in SGO with Naugrim's generous permission - make sure to endorse his mod too.
Quest/New land mods with "populated" encounters (AWOP, Someguy series) - compatible, but may lead to much harder combat due to more enemies attacking you. Be prepared :)
Combat Enhancer - superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. Great mod, but often turned NPCs into mediums with sonars, also "cover-based" fight was impractical and in many cases just made enemies run away for no reasons
MCV - Modified Combat Values - mostly superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. Great mod as well, but had some other unreasonable NPC behaviour values which often leaded to weird combat.
No Neos - superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. This mod removed NPC dodge entirely - Nevada Combat implements this in more balanced way - NPCs will still dodge, but just much less often, which will still keep combat interesting from this perspective.
Enemy AI - Tactics - NPC Healing - mostly superseded mod. This mod main plugin itself (AI/combat changes) is not needed, as SGO has own changes of same type. NPC healing plugin is standalone and you can use it together with SGO.
Super Mutant Overhaulord - integrated and adjusted mod. This amazing Mig's creation was incorporated into SGO with his generous permission - and tweaked a bit for better fitting SGO philosophy. Please, take a moment to endorse his mod too :3
Nevada Combat - integrated mod. My own little mod, as a predcessor to SGO. You don't need it if you are using SGO. Yet, NC will be still available for download in case SGO is too much for ya :)

Q: Some additional recommended mods for best results?
A: Sure! Take a look:

Essential mod which turns weapon modding in New Vegas into something it should always been from the start.
Fallout 4 Power Armor Features
Simply one of the most revolutionary mods on FNV modding stage and a must-have if you're planning to use power armor.
NPCs Sprint In Combat
Essential mod to make melee enemies more challenging opponents.
More Realistic Aiming
Does how it's called. Also grab a fix for it.
Harvestable Cave Fungus
Simple little mod which also balances funguses price to prevent economics breaking. I didn't include funguses price tweak to SGO simply because this mod already exists and there's no reason to no take it :)
Immersive Recoil 2.0
Imo, one of the most essential mods for realistic gunplay. The best recoil mod ever + highly configurable.
JIP Realistic Weapon Overheating
If you want even more relistic gunplay mechanics, get this one too.
Economy Overhaul
For (in this one humble opinion) near perfect balance to game economy. SGO economy tweaks and addition were made with this mod in mind.
Mojave Wildlife
More encounters for more challenge. Vanilla version is recommended.
Mojave Raiders
Overhaul of New Vegas's raider factions, balancing their loot and adding more of them to fight
NAWEMO - NPCs use Ammo Variants and Weapon Mods
NPCs will now be able to use weapon mods, making combat more challenging. Essential one as well.
More Conditions to Fast Travel
Must-have mod for challenging realistic walkthrough - in vanilla, you was able to fast travel anytime you had almost any issue (like injury or addiction) - this mod adds many new conditions for fast travel, so if you're injured, suffering from withdrawal, radiation etc - you can't just magically escape to your warm bend or doctor
Unfound Loot
To give Mojave actual scarcity it should always have. Greatly helps with economy balance as well. "Balanced" or "Hardcore" options are recommended in its MCM.

Those are just a few recommendations - if you're curious about how to build your mod list in general, peek at my NV modding guide.
I want to heartily credit amazing people who inspired and/or helped me to make SGO in this or that way. Please make sure to endorse their work too:

- Yukichigai for YUP fixes to scripts of Vulpes, Lucius, Elijah and Joshua Graham, which were forwarded to SGO and merged with scripted events made for these NPCs. Third time: never play without YUP - and make sure to endorse this titanic work
- Jazzisparis for JIP LN plugin which is a sacred library of NV modding and essential extender of NVSE functions
- Naugrim for allowing me to use his melee weapons reach fix script and his huge, inspiring DUST overhaul
- Miguick for his permission to incorporate Super Mutant Overhaulord mod into SGO and couple of his other mods/fixes which inspired me on other changes in my overhaul, and for his insane contribution to New Vegas and Oblivion modding stages in general
- Cirosan for his amazing overhaul and his passion which greatly inspired me to work on SGO
- Grasscid for his badass Karma Perks mod which inspired me to make own karma bonuses for SGO
- Slippyguy for his permission to use some of his scripts from badass Vicious Wastes mod and his endless love to New Vegas
- ItsMeJesusHChrist for his amazing textures for endless New Vegas icons and permission to use some of them so SGO perks can shine like a diamonds in player's interface. Never play without Consistent Pip-Boy Icons mod
- PrinceMinusA for omelette model :)
- EnaiSiaion for being not less than most talented, passionate mod author with the biggest contribution to Bethesda modding stage ever made (and original creator of most popular and iconic Diablo II mod). Your innovative works were inspiring me for years and that was your work that helped me to get some bravery to make my own overhaul. If you (my dear reader) are playing modded Skyrim - never play withou Enai mods
- Bethesda for allowing Obsidian to create Fallout New Vegas and for releasing G.E.C.K. for public usage
- Obsidian for making Fallout New Vegas, the best 3D Fallout game

Q: How to install?
A: Download the file and add it to your mod manager. Install as usually.

Q: I'm out of .esp slots! Can I merge it?
A: While it's technically possible, it's strongly not recommended to merge SGO as it's a complex mod. You can merge its patches without any issues though :)

Q: You mentioned some "U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E."? What's that?
A: That's an A to Z modular modding guide for Fallout New Vegas, with wide list of graphics & gameplay mods, premade mod lists that you can easily mimic without worrying about compatibility, and tips for a great stability even in game with hundreds of mods. Even if you're not planning to use many mods, you still should implement the stability/UI section of the guide to have a stable game without glitches, which NV is prone to as a Bethesda game.

I've made this mod for myself initially - but I hope you'll like it too. And if you liked it and you want to support my work and future development of Ultimate Modding Guides and other mods, consider supporting me on Patreon.
Cheers! :)

Seven Sins ENB is my attemt to pick up the best parts from two amazing presets - Rudy ENB and Dreary ENB, with both author permissions - combining them, making some little adjustments here and there and adding compatibility options for popular weather/lighting mods. I also made it to be a complementarty (but ofc absolutely optional) ENB preset for my upcoming New Vegas U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E. modding guide. Why exactly these 2 presets, how Seven Sins look like in the end, which mods are compatible and more - read below.

Current mod version & changelog:

Version 1.5 at September 2021:

- Minor corrections here and there, for better quality and gameplay comfort
- Fixed the too bright nights, making them more realistic (darker) now - but not "too much"

Future updates:

- Support for beautiful "Supreme Weather" mod by xGeorge

Video showcase, haha:

Q: Why exactly Rudy and Dreary? What you've take from each of them?
A: Dreary ENB has amazing cinematic look inspired by Stalker/Metro series, most likely the best one from cinematic presets ever made. But, playing with it constantly in bleak atmosphere may give the same bleak mood while playing. Also, certain places/objects (which colors are cold/bright) often look too bleached in interiors. And here's when Rudy's preset plays along! Rudy ENB has maybe the most ambient, beautiful interiors that I ever saw between dozens of presets. They are perfectly balanced in terms of brightness and coloring - and so, balancing the Dreary bleak interiors look with more saturated and tasty, ambient interiors. Some people played with Rudy ENB don't like it's exteriors for being too bright/bloomy (I personally don't think so, but that's just my opinion) - and here's when Dreary ENB gives it's cinematic, moderately bright exteriors. Combo-wombo!

Q: What else have you changed or added?
A: Minor things here and there - brightness, sky/clouds/sun/moon adjustments - tiny things here and there, as per my own taste. Besides that, full Night vision/Thermal vision/EMI vision support was forwarded from Rudy ENB and adjusted to fit the Seven Sins ENB.

Q: What about compatibility? Performance options? "Black bars"? Depth of field options?
A: Yes! My goal was to provide best possible amount of choices for everything. Seven Sins ENB currently has compatibility options for:
- Interior Lighting Overhaul
- Realistic Wasteland Lighting
- Both of them together!
I'll make more compatibility options in future. Feel free to suggest :)
If you're new to modding and don't want to mess with ENB settings, there are next optional files:
- No letterbox ("black bars")
- Stronger DOF (depth of field) for screenshot purposes
- More saturated sun
- Ultra-performance version that may save you from 7 to 20 fps, depending on your rig. Also, performance version has same compatibility variants as the main one.

Q: How to install this?
A: Same as any other ENB preset, just with one minor addition - also install tiny esp from Files section (this you can install with mod manager) - it's needed to prevent certain brightness glitches in certain regions. If you don't know how to install ENB yet, here's the list of steps (same is also written in readme file in Seven Sins ENB main folder):
- Make sure you have DirectX June 2010 Redist installed.
- Install ENB core files from archive here. Download it anywhere, unzip, go to WrapperVersion folder, take only d3d9.dll and enbhost.exeand place them into Fallout New Vegas main folder (where FalloutNV and FalloutNVLauncher .exe files are). Not the \Data folder!
- Then, download my ENB files, unpack the archive and simply place all files from "Preset - Main" folder into Fallout New Vegas main folder (same where you've placed core ENB files). If you want to use compatibility version for other weahter/lighting mods supported, performance version of this preset or some other options, navigate to "Preset - Optionals" folder and read the readme file there.
- Make sure to adjust "VideoMemorySizeMb" value as per formula in enblocal.ini, look here. You can also look for instructions in my modding guide
- Now you need to disable ingame antialiasing and some other features that will be done by ENB. In your FalloutPrefs.ini file (located at \Documents\My Games\ FalloutNV - open it with any text editor like notepad), find the next settings:

These values are not going one after another in the .ini files, just search them (CTRL+F) one by one. Make sure all these settings values are set to 0. If you don't have these settings for some reasons, just add them manually and set to 0. Save the file (CTRL+S) and close it.
- Install "Sevens Sins ENB - weather plugin" file. Download the file, add it to your mod manager and install as usual. It's needed to fix "day night" issues with vanilla weathers in some areas. You need it for BOTH vanilla and modded weathers (i.e. if you have weather mods). Give it the bigger load order priority over weather mod plugin (you can just place it very last in your LO, after bashed/merged patches as well).
- To install compatibility version for weather/lighting mods supported - go to "Preset - Optionals" folder and read the readme file. It will help you ;)
- Sometimes, New Vegas ENB (not this preset itself but in general) gives weird look to character hair. To prevent that, install this fix for hair meshes.
- And lastly, but very important - please, don't forget to endorse two amazing ENB presets which served a base for this one, Rudy and Dreary. Also, consider supporting Boris Vorontsov, the father of ENB engine itself - without him, nothing of this would be possible at all.

Q: I don't like your preset. It looks awful. Can you change diz/dat personally for me?
A: ENB presets is ofc a matter of taste. Until there are some direct bugs with it, I won't change it's look, as that's how I see it. Thought, you can change it yourself - anytime and as much as you want - brightness, saturation, bloom, sharpness and all other ENB parameters can be changed straight ingame in ENB GUI (SHIFT+ENTER). Play with settings and make changes you like :)

Q: You said you have modding guides for other games? Huh?
A: Currently, I have complete and up-to-date modding guides for Skyrim, Oblivion and modding tutorials for Gothic 1, 2, 3. Look here:

- Skyrim graphics guide
- Skyrim gameplay guide
- Witcher 3 modding guide
- Divinity Original Sin 2 modding guide
- Oblivion gameplay guide
- Gothic 1 remaster tutorial
- Gothic 2 tutorial to install biggest and most amazing Gothic mod ever made + review of the mod itself
- Gothic 3 remaster tutorial

Q: Dat armor?
A: Wasteland Engineer Armor.

I hope you'll enjoy Seven Sins ENB and wish you a beautiful and stable game!

Nevada Combat is a simple yet effective mod for more logical and challenging combat, with a little flavor as bonus. Note: as for now, Nevada Combat is fully included is much bigger and interesting overhaul, SGO for NV - if you're using SGO, you don't need this mod. What's it about and what's included? See below:

Q: Yet another combat mod? Srsly? Why? *grumpy face*
A: There are indeed some other great mods for this purpose, like Combat Enhancer and some others and they just work. But, I was not 100% satisfied by some of changes they made. For example, mod improves enemies awareness, but turns them into living sonars in interiors and/or makes absolutely random NPCs to attack you. Or it makes enemies so search for cover more actively, but often turns fights into hide-and-seek game (which may be realistic, but not gameplay-pleasant). Or stops enemies from being a dodge-ninjas by removeing NPC dodge entirely. Well, you got it I believe - many mods were great, but often made some of changes "too much". I made this tiny mod inspired by other similar older mods, but made sure settings are balanced and without using placebo settings (I hope hehe). It should be a good little addition to your existing mod list due to its simplicity, or just a simple combat mod for minimalistic (vanilla+/bugfixes) setups.

Q: Ok, so what is changed?
A: With Nevada Combat, you should feel the next in combat:

- Enemies will notice/attack you from bigger distance when you start shooting (but not act like they have sonars in their pocket)
- Enemies will flee on bigger distances and search for cover more actively (but not running 5km away)
- Enemies will dodge bullets much less often
- Enemies will be less "snipers"
- Enemies will search you in bigger radius
- Enemies will "rethink" their will to return to fight faster
- Enemies will turn in your direction faster
- Enemies will loot bodies and switch weapons more often
- Melee enemies will be more agressive and perform power attacks more often
- Knockdown from enemies to you will be more dangerous (but not that hard, just a little stronger than in vanilla)
- Creatures reach was made a bit more logical
- Grenades bounce time was made more realistic
- Melee weapons reach is fixed via one lighweight script, ensuring compatibility with mods

Q: Compatibility and/or superseded mods?
A: Highly compatible with most of popular mods! Click the "Show" button to see compatibility notes:

YUP - fully compatible and a must have. No actions needed.
Project Nevada - fully compatible. Shares only 1 same setting. Load NC after PN Rebalance plugin.
JSawyer Ultimate - fully compatible. No actions needed.
Vicious Wastes - Difficulty Rebalance - fully compatible, just make sure to use "No Agility" version of my mod (because this feature is already included in it). No other actions needed.
Cover Based Stealth Mechanics - fully compatible and very much recommended. No actions needed.
Enemy AI - Tactics - NPC Healing - fully compatible. No actions needed.
NPCs Can Miss - fully compatible and very much recommended. Shares only 1 same record. Load NPCs Can Miss after NC. Recommended version of NPCs Can Miss - "High Accuracy".
Super Mutant Overhaulord - fully compatible and very much recommended. No actions needed.
NPC Dynamic Combat Styles - compatible and recommended. Simply load this mod plugin after Nevada Combat plugin.
After War Nevada - NC and AWN share 5 same AI settings with different values. If you want my mod to take full advantage in terms of AI, just load it after AWN. But take into account that AWN is a complete gameplay overhaul and it's settings were made for reasons - so it's totally up to you to use my mod together with it :)
Interior Lighting Overhaul - fully compatible. No actions needed.
All "cosmetic" character overhauls (FCO/NV Redesigned/Dragbody NPC overhauls) - fully compatible. No actions needed.
TTW - compatible. TTW version available during FOMOD installation.
Melee Reach Fixed -  included in Nevada Combat with Naugrim's generous permission.
Quest/New land mods with "populated" encounters (AWOP, Someguy series) - compatible, but may lead to much harder combat due to more enemies attacking you. Be prepared :)
Combat Enhancer - superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. Great mod, but often turned NPCs into mediums with sonars, also "cover-based" fight was impractical and in many cases just made enemies run away for no reasons
MCV - Modified Combat Values - mostly superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. Great mod as well, but had some other unreasonable NPC behaviour values which often leaded to weird combat.
No Neos - superseded mod. You don't need it when using NC. This mod removed NPC dodge entirely - Nevada Combat implements this in more balanced way - NPCs will still dodge, but just much less often, which will still keep combat interesting from this perspective.

Q: What about "flavor"?
A: I was always piggered by the fact Agility does [not] affect character's movement speed. Now it does! Above 5 Agility, you'll have small movement speed bonus per each point of Agility. Below 5 Agility, you'll have small movement speed penalty per each point of Agility below 5. This movement speed bonus is carefully balanced - it won't turn you into Flash and won't turn into turtle, but give exact that small, but pleasant bonus that this attribute always had to give. Max movement speed bonus is 15% (at 10 Agility) and maximum movement speed penalty is 10% (at 1 Agility). This little feature was incorporated with permission of Slippyguy from his amazing Vicious Wastes mod. If you want version with bigger or smaller bonus - let me know and I'll upload optional version.

Q: I don't want movement speed bonus from Agility. Or even better, I don't want your combat mod, only that Agility feature. What now?
A: No problems! Mod has a smart FOMOD installer which will offer you all possible choices.

Q: How to install?
A: Download the file and add it to your mod manager. Install as usually, choosing one of mod versions in installer.

Q: I'm out of .esp slots! Can I merge it?
A: Yep, easily. Just make sure it's loaded after other mods in merge to have it's combat changes, if you're merging it with some other combat mods. Just to be sure.

As mentioned before, Nevada Combat is a simple mod inspired by other good mods, made to be added into your load order as complementary mod to improve combat non-intrusively and fix vanillas too easy fights, with little neat (and optional) addition on top. I've made it for myself initially - but I hope you'll like it too :)

Q: What's LCT?
A: Logic and Consistency Tweaks, or just LCT mod for Witcher 3.
Mod aims on fixing/rebalancing some really irrational/underpowered/OP effects of weapons, armors and items which were omitted by other mods, as well as correcting large amount of miscellaneous things affecting balance in the game (like some ingredients have a higher cost than items you craft from them, etc).
While it can't be called a major overhaul as it doesn't change anything from fundamental game mechanics, in total, it turned out to be a pretty large mod, focused on logic and roleplay.
Also, while not technically requiring, it's made to be used in synergy with the Redux mod.

Q: What is the list of features?
A: Look yourself:
- All witcher weapons (including GM tiers from BAW DLC and HOS Viper swords) rebalanced.
- Each weapon now clearly represents a certain fighting style of that school, having actually unique combat bonuses.
- All relic weapons have useless "Dismember %" removed and replaced by some useful effect fitting each weapon existing effects set.
- All trophies (including HOS and BAW DLCs) rebalanced. One of the largest part of the mod together with the weapons rebalance.
- Each trophy now gives subtle, but pleasant bonuses depending on the trophy, which can fit certain character build.
- Repair kits rebalanced.
- Lesser green mutagen effect buffed to be similar in ratio to Medium and Greater ones similar to how ratio is for Red/Blue mutagens.
- Free DLCs (Temerian, Nifgaardian, Undvik) armor sets rebalanced.
- Teigr rebalanced and made a part of Cat School gear set.
- Some unique armors and weapons from HOS and BAW DLCs were also rebalanced, receiving unique fitting effects.
- Small quest rewards overhaul, for those gold sums in the game which felt wrong logically - for base game, HOS and BAW DLCs.
- Fixed an utterly silly disbalance in prices for many alchemical ingredients - for example, Alcohest base price is 10 gold, while cost of its ingredients is over 40. Makes no sense. Balanced all these ingredients prices to be logical (having a profit from crafting certain alchemy items instead of buying them).
- Some other things corrected here and there - I can't honestly even recall them all now, as I've started working on the mod in early 2021 haha. Once again, purely logic corrections - nothing that can affect game difficulty directly.
- 10 versions of the mod to choose from, names are self-explanatory.
Hope you'll enjoy <3

Q: How to install and what about compatibility?
A: After downloading the mod archive and installing chosen version to \mods folder, run Script Merger. It'll show bunch of .xml conflicts and (probably) couple of script conflicts. Merge everything, it should be automatic for all merges. For merging .xml conflicts, in vastly majority of cases (until something looks really fishy), simply choose LCT lines only. Only part where you shouldn't merge .xml conflicts between LCT and Redux, are these weapon .xmls: "def_item_crafting_weapons.xml", "def_item_weapons.xml", "def_item_crafting_weapons.xml" and "def_item_weapons_relic.xml" - LCT can simply take over those (make merges of those with other mods, if conflicts will appear, though). That's it!

I want to huge thanks to each and every patron of mine, existing and past ones, who helped me to keep going and deliver the modding guides and these mods in particular - without your support, I would never be able to have enough time to compile them <3
