Companion Carry Weight Modifications


Companion Carry Weight Modifications

If you’re interested in this mod, you may also be interested in my other mod, Automatron Robot Carry Weight Modifications.

This mod increases the carry weight of your companions by either 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000, or 128000. My aim was to implement this as cleanly as possible and so I magnified the effect of the magazine Live & Love #3 Trim the Fat, where in the vanilla game it increases your companions carry weight by 10. This means that you will have to first find the magazine Live & Love #3 Trim the Fat to increase your companions carry weight.

This mod also patches the bug where the Live & Love magazine perks do not effect Cait, Curie, Dogmeat, MacCready, or Preston Garvey. If you are planning on installing this mod in an ongoing play-through please install and execute the Curie Live & Love magazine perk patch bat file in the optional files section. Curie doesn’t seem to update Actor Effects at all if applied to an existing save game. The only way of adding Actor Effects to Curie in an existing save game that I have found is applying it through the console. That is where this bat file comes in, please look at the FAQ for installation instructions. If you are installing this mod in a new play-through then you are not required to do this.

If you are interested in only the bug patch then I suggest you check out my other mod, LiveNLove Magazine Perk Patch.
