Better Settlers – The New Settlers – Beautiful Female Settlers Merged Patch
This is a Merged Patch combining Better Settlers v. 0.96 (BS), The new settlers a plus Overhaul vanilla v. 1.2 (NS), and Beautiful Female Settlers v. 1.21 – Non-Replacer (BFS). Running the combined merge of all three will expand your possible unique settlers to almost 200, all with the Better Settlers perks and upgraded gear.
IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU UNINSTALL OR DISABLE ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THE NEW SETTLERS AND/OR BEAUTIFUL FEMALE SETTLERS DEPENDING ON THE VERSION OF THE MERGED PATCH YOU DECIDE TO USE, THESE MERGED PATCHES REPLACE THE ORIGINAL VERSIONS OF THOSE MODS.
UPDATE V. 1.31 :
V. 1.31 – New version of all three patches updated for the latest version of Better Settlers v. 0.96, to be loaded after your Better Settlers plugin and add-on packs in your load order.
Also added optional files for each version making all added settlers Mortal, for those of you running the Mortal option in Better Settlers.
UPDATE V. 1.3 :
V. 1.3 – Fixes issue of males showing up with female voices and adds new faces for the vanilla settlers. Before and after pix of the new vanilla settler faces can be seen here.
UPDATE V. 1.2 :
V. 1.2 – All faces ripped out of original files, checked for content and consistency with the original intent, and ripped into clean records for the new update. This is probably as clean as I can get this merge. I’ve spawned over 1000 settlers in testing this update and everything seems to be working the way it should. No mismatched skin tones.
I’ve included a BATCH FILE in the miscellaneous files section for spawning settlers. Extract the file into your FALLOUT4 directory. While in-game, open your console and type:
This will spawn 4 random settlers from the list of all possible settlers in this mod. Repeat as many times as you want to spawn as many random settlers as you want.
WHAT THIS MOD DOES NOT DO:
This mod will not fix any file or save corruption issues caused by the original version of The New Settlers, unless it happens by accident. if you’re having problems associated with an earlier install of The New Settlers, you can try to keep New Settlers active and then make sure both Better Settlers and the Merged Patch are after New Settlers in your load order, it might help. No guarantees though.
Please let me know of any issues you have with THIS mod. Thanks.
There are three version of this Merged Patch.
One combines BS, NS, and BFS
One combines only BS and NS
One combines only BS and BFS
Take your pick. They all require Better Settlers to run, and you should disable or uninstall any other versions of NS and BFS if you run the full merged patch, HOWEVER, if you’re having problems associated with an earlier install of The New Settlers, you can try to keep New Settlers active and then make sure both Better Settlers and the Merged Patch are after New Settlers in your load order, it might help. No guarantees though.
The NS and BFS settlers have their starting stats, perks, and inventory matched with BS, and are linked to the BS starting outfits and leveled lists.
Running the combined merge of all three will expand your possible unique settlers to almost 200.
BS and NS both replace vanilla settlers. but the vanilla settlers all got new faces in the 1.3 versions, BS got them in the original BS BFS Merge.
