Combat Armor Color Swaps
Bethesda uses a palette system to color the different Combat Armor material mods – which makes it REALLY simple to swap one material’s colors for another.
You want to use the Polymer material, but don’t want dingy white armor? I got you covered. Change the Polymer colors to Shadowed (or a special, darker version of Shadowed), Brotherhood of Steel, Military, or the base color of unmodded Combat Armor.
Want to use Shadowed for the sneak bonus, but want a variety of colors? Change it to Darker Shadowed, BoS, Military, Desaturated (black and gray) or base unmodded.
Want to use Brotherhood of Steel material for the resistances, but don’t particularly care for the tan and orange colors? Change it to Shadowed, Darker Shadowed, Unmodded, Desaturated, or Military.
Have a suggestion for a swap on the other colors? Let me know, I can whip it right up!
Just download your flavor of swap (only one, as they each replace the same file) and install with NMM. If you have a request to change 2 or more (say, you want Polymer changed to Military, and Brotherhood of Steel swapped to Shadowed) let me know that, too. I can crank these out pretty fast.
Also used in the screenshots: Distressed Minutemen Logo for Combat Armor, which replaces the generic Star decal for the Minutemen logo, and Vaultsuit BoS Uniform and Pipboy Recolor for the OD green BoS Uniform.
