Replaces the transparency effect with a bluish solid effect (shown only for a few seconds) when using either chameleon armor or stealth boys.
Removes the blinding flash shown when the transparency effect would start.


When you are transparent, aiming accurately is almost impossible when using certain weapons.
If you wear chameleon armor, a flash effect is applied each time you stop moving while sneaking. I personally found this very annoying.


I recommend installing the mod through Nexus Mod Manager (see this video for detailed instructions).

Known Problems

The Pip-Boy screen is still transparent and difficult to use.
The character model may look strange in third-person view. It will sometimes be partly transparent, looking more like dithered transparency.
Characters other than the player is likely also affected and may look strange if they normally were transparent.
You cannot see when the effect wears off.


Mods that change what happens when a stealth boy is used, or chameleon armor is worn, may conflict with this mod.

Technical Details

The mod overrides MGEF records for the chameleon effect. In the changed versions, the VMAD subrecord (which references a script for showing a particular IMAD effect) has been removed. This disables the flash effect.
To get the alternative model effect, a HitShader field, which previously was empty, now references a EFSH record.
Exactly how the transparency effect is applied I actually don’t know, so it isn’t really disabled. Instead, two game setting records (GMST), controlling the minimum and maximum refraction, has been modified to invalid values, and luckily this seems to eliminate the effect in most cases. Hopefully a cleaner way to do this can be found.
