Patch notes/Horizon/1.2.0

From Horizon Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
PLEASE NOTE: v1.2 is considered a MAJOR update release. A few simple things will be required if you are using an existing Horizon save game.

1> Load your save game (and backup any save games if you wish)
2> Unequip ALL your armor/clothing (don't be inside Power Armor either)
3> Don't have any food/chem buffs on
4> If you care about Power Armor, check the patch notes below, and unattach any material mods that are changed
5> Save your game
6> Uninstall the old Horizon, and install the new version
7> If you manually install, make sure "Z_Horizon_Tags.esp" is deleted. It's no longer used.


Update v1.2.0 - The Commonwealth United

The Command Table has returned in full force. This update contains part of what I originally wanted to bring to the Command Table when it was first implemented, but so many other things in Horizon have been taking priority before it.

This update adds a new gameplay element to settlers, to allow them to perform tasks and missions for both you and the community you're creating by building up your settlements.

My end goal with the settlement progression system (which still isn't anywhere near done) is to make settlements feel ALIVE and part of the game. You should want to expand settlements and rebuild the Commonwealth on a global scale.

This new system should work perfectly fine in parallel with Sim Settlements. Settlers can have a Horizon job, and still live in a Sims residental house. Horizon jobs are very specific, so this isn't something you assign to all settlers. It will have a nice mixture and balance with standard jobs (farming, vendors, defense, etc.)

Future updates will include reworking the Resource Manager and production to work more like this new system does.

Armor and Power Armor is completely overhauled. Any existing PA in the a save game will need to be modded in a PA station to be upgraded.

There are bound to be minor errors with armor (tags/icons, etc.), so please let me know when you find something.



Full patch notes below


Tags Addon ESP (OBSOLETE)
- The file "Z_Horizon_Tags.esp" is no longer needed!
- If you installed using the installer, it should automatically remove it
- If you manually installed Horizon, BE SURE TO DELETE "Z_Horizon_Tags.esp"
- Leaving the old file in place will cause your item naming to be incorrect
- A blank version is included in the zip, in case anyone does not read the patch notes, so they hopefully overwrite it


(NEW) Settler Missions/Tasks (Command Table)
- Settlers can be assigned to specific roles, and sent on missions/tasks
- There is a maximum amount of personel that can be sent on missions/tasks, based on varying conditions (listed further below)
- You can have over this maximum of personal assigned, and they will gain settlement bonuses, but not be able to go on tasks/missions
- If you unassign a role that is used on a current task/mission, it will cancel that mission/task (this may or may not be working yet)

Job Assignment Roles
- All job stations add small mounts of happiness to the settlement
- Militia: Military personel that are assigned to both defense and offense.
- Technicians: These are salvagers and repairmen. 
- Hunters: Hunters can hunt animals for meat, and forage wild plants. 
- Engineers: Engineers can craft random devices, and help research technology. 
- Entertainers: Entertainers write literature and perform acts for other settlers.
- Doctors: Doctors that you assign to standard vendor stalls, count as Doctors.
- Traders: Traders that you assign to standard vendor stalls, count as Traders.
- (Doctors and Traders are tracked, but there are currently no tasks for them yet)

Job Stations
- Each job station declares what role this settler is filling
- Job stations are located in the "Resources->Misc" category of the workshop
- Some roles have multiple job stations, but these are for cosmetic variety only.. you can choose any of them you want.
- There's an Options Menu in the Command Table, where you can turn off job assignment messages

Job Assignment Missions and Tasks

- Technicians: Scrapping tasks, Scrounging tasks
- Hunters: Hunting tasks, Gathering tasks

Job Skills - Overview
- All job skills are global for all settlements
- Skill can be gained up to 100 points
- Skills are gained by sending personel on missions and tasks
- Failing a task still gains skill for that job role
- Most tasks have a 45-50% base success chance
- Every 2 skill points increases the task's chance of success by 1%
- Most tasks give 2-4 points per success, and 1-2 per failure (tasks with more settlers usually give more xp)
- Above 79 skill, there is a -2 skill per day decay*
*This means settlers need to be honing their skills if they want to be in the "Master" skill level

Job Skills - Types
- Military: Gained from Militia missions
- Scavenging: Gained from Technician tasks
- Survival: Gained from Hunter missions
- Engineering: Gained from Engineer tasks

- Supplies are taken from either your inventory, the scrap storage, or your designated resource destination workbench
- Most tasks/missions have a starting 40-50% chance for success (this chance increases with skill)
- Most tasks take 48 hours (32 hours with timescale addon), a few larger ones take 72 hours
- The time it takes is NOT exact, as it is based on cycles

Tasks and Missions - Types
- Scouting: 2 Militia can bring back military supplies, with a chance of a scouting report*

> Hunting Reports: These are missions that give the location of legendary-tier creatures, spotted by your hunters.
(Reports will most likely only be gained from Tier-3 missions, which require 80+ skill, so by the time I finish this, you may be there)

Tasks and Missions - Rewards
- Tasks that fail give no reward
- Each successful task gives random rewards based on task type
- Rewards are placed into the Mission Container, which is accessed from the Command Table
- You can only withdraw items from the Task Container, you cannot store items in it
- Rewards can become increasingly better as settlers in this role become more skilled
- There are currently 3 tiers of rewards: 1-39 skill, 40-80 skill, 80-100 skill
- Example: Scrounging Tier 1 gives common junk, Tier 2 and 3 adds a chance for rare and unique items
- Example: Crafting Tier 1 gives Grade-1 Lockpicking tools, Tier 2 and 3 may give Grade-2 tools and various devices

Task Deployments (Maximum Deployments Slots)
>> The maximum amount of settlers you can assign to missions is based on your total settlement success in the Commonwealth
- Militia: 4 Starting, +1 per Successful Settlement, +4 per Military Outpost
- Technicians: 3 Starting, +1 per Successful Settlement, +2 per Industrial Park, +2 per Water Treatment Plant
- Hunters: 0 Starting, +1 per Farm, +1 at 1/3/6/10/15/21 Successful Settlements
- Engineers: 0 Starting, +1 per Industrial Park, +1 at 1/3/6/10/15/21 Successful Settlements
- Entertainers: 0 Starting, +1 per Recreational Park, +1 at 1/3/6/10/15/21 Successful Settlements
- Doctors: 0 Starting, +1 per Successful Settlement
- Traders: 0 Starting, +1 per Trading Market, +1 at 1/3/6/10/15/21 Successful Settlements

(NEW) Settlement Classifications
- Each "Successful Settlement" can further be molded into a specific classification for that settlement
- Each settlement can only be classified as one thing at a time, but can change based on it's current conditions
- Different classifications unlock more slots for personel to go on missions

Settlement Classifications are:
- Farming Communities: Requires 70+ food production
- Military Outposts: Requires 150+ Defense
- Trading Markets: Requires 25+ Trading Income
- Water Treatment Plants: Requires 100+ Purified Water Supply
- Industrial Park: Requires 200+ Power
- Recreational Parks: Requires 400+ Bonus Happiness

Notes on Jobs and Missions
- Keep in mind, these job roles are designed as specialists, so you don't need to be assigning LOTS of settlers to these roles. Just assign as many as you need to fill open task/mission slots.
- Settlers assigned to jobs do not technically ever disappear from their station even when sent on a mission. This is done on purpose (for now), to ensure there aren't any assignment problems.
- The assignment system will never be perfect because of the way settlements work. I would recommend (if you can spare them), to have 1-2 "extra" settlers of each job over what you can currently send out on missions.
- Doctors and Traders require vanilla or Horizon vendor stalls. They currently won't work with 3rd party vendor stalls. But currently they do nothing yet anyway.

(NEW) Settler Equipment Outfitter!
>> This brand new system allows you to walk up to a settler and quickly/easily equip them with weapons and outfits
- To access the menu for the outfitter, interact with a settler while you are CROUCHING*
*This is done so that the option doesn't conflict with popular mods such as Quick Trade

Settler Equipment Outfitter - **IMPORTANT NOTES**
- This system is experimental, and has limitations. Read before you use it.
- Don't keep any clothing/armor that you value on settlers, and it won't ever be a problem
- Equipping multiple settlers in a short time can cause a backlog. It'll go through but it may take a minute or 2.
- It's NOT recommended to leave a settlement (especially fast travel), until the settler's equipment swap is done

Settler Equipment Outfitter - Options
- There is an OPTIONS menu on the bottom, that allows you to switch how old equipment is dealt with
- Click on each option button to cycle through the available settings

Settler Equipment Outfitter - Weapons
- Weapons require weapon parts and some raw materials
- Weapons come in 2 Tiers: Standard (base weapon damage) and Powerful (+75% damage)
- Powerful weapons require Smithing skill (from Craftsmen) to be 50+
- These weapons CANNOT be modded, and have 0 caps value
- These weapons can be scrapped (usually 4 weapon parts)
- You can enable an option that will automatically move ALL old weapons/ammo into your inventory or scrap storage!

Settler Equipment Outfitter - Outfits
>> WARNING: Outfits will always REPLACE existing clothing/armor on the settler
>> The system attempts to move all existing clothing/armor on the settler first, before applying the new one*
- Clothing/Armor sets come in a variety of styles
- Equipment categories: Clothing, Leather, Metal
- Each category of armor usually requires different materials
- The destination of where the old clothing is put, can be selected in the options menu
- This automated process is done on purpose, because the game will DESTROY existing clothing
- WARNING: The system does NOT account for retrieving DLC armor/clothing or player-modded armor/clothing.. these items will be destroyed if replaced
*The system knows about most vanilla clothing/armor, but if it doesn't know how to "save" something, it will get DESTROYED. It will not destroy other items, such as weapons, ammo, etc.

(NEW) Equipment Shredder
>> This new settlement device can shred large quantities of clothing and armor into scrap
>> This device may not make casual scrapping much easier, but it's designed to make swapping/scrapping settler outfits easier
- It can shred: clothing, hats, armor, helmets, and eyewear
- It outputs based on the scrap you normally get: cloth, leather, metal, plastic, and glass
- It does NOT account for mods. If you want the best possible scrap on armor, scrap it manually
- To build this device, it's located under "Crafting" in the workshop
- To use this device, simply activate it to bring up the menu
- Select "Open Container" and add any clothing or armor you want to scrap
- After you activate the shredder, you can go about your business, and the shredder works in the background
- Notification messages will appear when the shredder processes each material type
- These messages can be disabled/enabled in the menu
- When the shredder is completed, you can take the processed materials out of it's container
- Any items that it doesn't know how to process, will remain in the container

Settlements
- Starting value for maximum settler population is now "20 + Charisma" (up from 10) to account for the Charisma changes
- The Mailbox container is now withdrawl ONLY (you cannot put items into it anymore)
- Opening the container on the mailbox will go back to the menu after
- The bonus happiness on the decorated pool table is increased considering it takes a lot of components
- Tier 3 vendors give more bonus happiness
- The Cargo Bot that you call out, is specifically called the "Cargo Bot 1-X", so that it has a unique name
- Fast Traveling no longer fails when you're over-encumbered and try to use the caravan transport (part of the point of a caravan is to carry stuff for you)
- BUG FIX: The Cargo Bot Station can now properly give you rank 9 of the Cargo Bot perk

Caravan Travel Hub
- Supply Kits only give 30 supplies (based on the new ingredients per kit, its actually a +10 buff)
- It only costs 400 caps for 30 supplies (slightly cheaper per supply than before)

Speech Check Overhaul
>> Dialog speech checks are changed to account for the changes in charisma (and because the default is not very good)
>> No longer should having 8 charisma FAIL on easy checks, and 10 is the maximum needed now
- REMINDER: Some survival debuffs reduce charisma... remember this before making incorrect bug reports!
- You need at least the minimum range listed below to have any chance to pass a check
- Easy (yellow) = Requires: 2-5 charisma (25%,50%,75%,100% chance)
- Medium (orange) = Requires: 5-8 charisma (25%,50%,75%,100% chance)
- Hard (red) = Requires: 8-10 charisma (35%,70%,100% chance)
- Lady Killer/Black Widow now give +20%/+40%/+60% chance (up from 10/20/30)*
*Example: you have 5 charisma, 25% chance on medium, but with a black widow rank 1 target it would be 45%


Chems
- Advanced Antibiotics are now called "Advanced Cure-X", and is priced higher
- Calmex's water breathing tooltip now properly states that it cures Insomnia too
- Calmex is reduced to 2 agility and 2 perception, but it's much more common now (on vendors and loot)
- Psychotats can be found more often on some vendors and loot
- Psychotats only lasts for 5 mins now, no longer gives perception, but gives +20 damage resist (up from 10)

- Poison Antidote gives a more stable version of the Poison Immunity buff now, and will display in the perk tabs while active
- Caps prices on some chems were adjusted
- Grape Mentats: Now gives +2 Int and 20% bartering bonus (up from 10%), but no longer gives charisma*
- X-Cell: No longer gives charisma, but lasts for 10 mins now (up from 5m, which was originally 2m), and has half the addiction cost
- Day Tripper: No longer gives charisma, but gives +4 luck and only -1 strength
- Day Tripper: Fixed the bugged duration so it lasts for it's listed duration now
- [DLC] Smooth Operator: No longer gives charisma
- (All beers still give +1 charisma)
*This type of buff does exactly what was needed for a long time. It's actually useful for any charisma level, and less overpowered for low charisma.

Doctors / Health
- Endurance now gives 20 health per point (up from 10), since you cannot gain it dynamically anymore
- Having "Dark Craving" should now be counted as an addiction to allow the menu you to cure you

- You can now use a device called the "Weapon Toolkit" to switch ammo and firing modes on certain weapons
- This device can be crafted in the Weapons Lab under "Tools and Parts"
- The device is located in the AID tab, and can be assigned to your favorites bar
- Certain ammo types may require additional tools called "Conversion Kits"
- You simply need to carry the appropriate Conversion Kit with you, in order to swap some ammo types

- It allows you to have a ballistic weave helmet, that is hidden and which doesn't use the top hair slots
- If you try to equip a real helmet, after you exit the pipboy it will immediately unequip it
- It uses a temporary hat in order to force the helmet off your head, which only takes less than a second of time
- You must remove the Stealth Helmet in order to wear another helmet
- This helmet uses the "Headband" slot.. so anything that uses that slot will remove the Stealth Helmet
- This helmet is still experimental, so please report any problems you see, and let me know if it works ok for you!
- NOTE: This hat switch occurs every time you equip any piece of armor, so you may see this hat flip on your head occasionally after you switched your clothing/armor.

- Gas Masks scrap into "Used Filters"
- Rad Filter: This slot can be upgraded 5 times (+30-150 Rad Resistance)

Gas Mask Upgrade System: Advanced Rad Defender System[/color]
>> The concept behind these gas mask upgrades, is they are very useful, but you don't want to wear it all the time
>> The design of the Defender System is to provide high rad resists while allowing you to wear your regular armor
- Advanced Rad Defender System: This slot can be upgraded 5 times (+50-400 Rad Resistance based on rank)
- The Defender system does not remove rad damage you already have, it simply helps to prevent further damage to your body
- The Defender system reduces your AP refresh while wearing it (-40% to -80% based on rank)*
- The Defender system mods have a very unique crafting feel to them, with a progressive flow that requires different skills and recipes
- Each rank (above 1) requires the previous rank's loose mod
- To upgrade each rank, choose the standard mod to eject the current mod, exit the workbench, and then build the next rank with it**
- NOTE: Be careful not to build the same rank twice by accident, as it will do nothing
*I may make a better debuff system in the future, but I don't want to add more to the patch right now
**The loose mod requirements won't update properly unless you exit/enter the workbench again

Armor Rebalancing - Armor Pieces

- Armor pieces can be upgraded/downgraded to Light, Medium, Heavy, depending on your perks*
- All "paint-based" material slots for armor such as Combat Armor, no longer effect the stats, just the paint

Armor Rebalancing - Legendary Mods

- Legendary mods are crafted inside the Armor workbench as all other mods are
- Legendary mods usually require raw materials found on legendary enemies
- Legendary mods that didn't make sense or don't fit/balance, are not carried over (which are many)

- Medic Pump is now "Winterized Insulation" which gives +5 cryo resist

- Photovoltaic Plates gives +10% ap regen in the sun, and +5 fire resist

- Jumping now drains the battery by a very small amount

Armor Rebalancing - Power Armor: Classes (T-45, etc.)
- Armor values are rebalanced so that the different classes of PA aren't quite as far apart in stats
- Each class of Power Armor has it's own differences, even if they're minor

(NEW) Armor Rebalancing - Power Armor: Base Structure Mod
>> This new mod slot is the core of Power Armor pieces now, which allows you to specify what material the base structure is made of
- There are 2 categories for these mods: Torso and Limb (includes Helm)
- Limb mods are 1/4th of the protection that the chest gives
- Structure mods are expensive/difficult to upgrade, but are interchangeable between different classes of Power Armor*
- Structure mods are the first mods that return their full materials inside of the "loose mod" item**
*Example: You can unattach an Aluminum Alloy mod from a T-45, and move it to a T-60
**What this means, is you can scrap your old detached mods and re-use the alloys again

There are 3 paths you can take in the structure system:
>> The path you take is based on your stat preferences, and the materials you can find/spare
>> Titanium is the best overall, but it can be costly as it is ALSO the best for weapon crafting
>> You can still get a nice balance by mixing Steel and Aluminum pieces, but it's not quite as high as full Titanium
- Steel Alloy (rank 1,2,3) -> Reinforced Steel Alloy (rank 4,5,6)
- Aluminum Alloy (rank 1,2,3) -> Leaded Aluminum Alloy (rank 4,5,6)
- Titanium Alloy (rank 1,2,3) -> Insulated Titanium Alloy (rank 4,5,6)

Each structure material has different properties:
- Rusted Steel: Very poor stats. Can sometimes be found on Power Armor you find on NPCs/frames
- Steel (Standard): Starting mod. This is the base default stats. Increased weight.
- Steel Alloy: Gives high Damaged Reduction (DR), low Energy Resistance (ER), adds armor health
- Reinforced Steel Alloy: Gives high DR, moderate ER, adds armor health
- Aluminum Alloy: Gives high ER, low DR, adds some fire resist, adds AP, reduced weight
- Lead-Lined Aluminum Alloy: Adds rad resists to Aluminum Alloy, moderate DR
- Titanium Alloy: Gives high DR and ER, adds armor health
- Insulated Titanium Alloy: Adds fire/cryo/rad resists to Titanium Alloy

Armor Rebalancing - Power Armor: Overall Condition
- The "Model" mod slot is completely reworked and simplified for crafting
- The slot is now considered an overall "condition" slot, which is long-term wear that can't be fixed with just simple repairs
- Model A = "Rusted" - Very poor protection/durability/value (uses the rusted texture)
- Model B = "Deteriorated" - Poor protection/durability/value
- Model C = "Degraded" - Below-average protection/durability/value
- Model D = "Functional" - Standard protection/durability (This is the standard working version)
- Model E = "Improved" - Improved protection/durability
- Model F = "Customized" - Superior protection/durability
- You can craft anything Functional and above, in order to restore old and busted PA
- These upgrades are cheaper than structure upgrades, since they are tied to the class of armor
- Each level has increased protection, and significantly increased durability
- Raider armor now has all 6 levels of mods, instead of 2
- Raider: Small bonus to Damage Reduction each rank
- T-45: Small bonus to Damage Reduction each rank
- T-51: Small bonus to Energy Resistance
- T-60: Small bonus to both DR and ER each rank
- X-01: Small bonus to both DR and ER each rank
- The T-51 "Model A" slot now properly shows a rusted texture like the other PA types
- All Model A mods now have a loose mod so they sort correctly

Armor Rebalancing - Raider Power Armor
- (NEW) Raider Power Armor now has a material slot
- (NEW) Now has a brand new texture map for palette colors
- (NEW) Now has a full palette of 16 possible colors patterns
- The default vanilla skin can be applied with a paint job called "Raider Paint"
- The default vanilla skin is automatically applied to "Deteriorated" and "Degraded" conditions
- The new "Rusty" paint is automatically applied to "Rusted" (The Model A)
- The new "Clean" paint is automatically applied to "Functional" and above
- These new palette-based paint jobs are very basic, but it adds a lot of variety to raider power armor

Armor Rebalancing - Power Armor from Loot/NPCs
- Power Armor on frames will often spawn with varying health damage
- Power Armor frames will no longer automatically have only the "highest" class of PA based on your level (T51, etc.)
- Raiders with power armor will spawn with some variety of quality and paint jobs

Armor Rebalancing - Armor/clothing naming
- Horizon's default armor/clothing naming/tagging system is fully expanded
- Every piece of vanilla/dlc armor and clothing will sort properly and have an appropriate icon
- You no longer require Armorsmith to have detailed icons/names, but it is still supported
- The Armorsmith patch itself now has the Horizon naming system, plus the AE tags as well
- All DLC armor/clothing is included with these changes
- Many DLC items no longer use the DLC naming rules, as Horizon's default rules account for mostly everything now*
*I'll still need to fine-tune this for DLC items as I go

>> The armorsmith patch requires Armor Keywords 3.2+

- All clothing uses Horizon's mods and balance now (let me know if I missed something)
- Fixed misc conflicts
- All of the Armor Keywords' armor/clothing naming rules now exist inside of this file, along with Horizon's naming rules
- Danse's PA pieces were missing in the patch, and updated with the proper Horizon balance
- All of the new ballistic weave recipes are disabled*
- All of the stats on existing weave mods were balanced closer to Horizon's level (in case you are already using them)
*Sorry, but I'd rather use Horizon's balanced weaves, which are always available regardless of the mods you use. Horizon currently has 2 styles of weaves, but I may add 1 or 2 more, so you can get a wider customized feel.

Armor Rebalancing - Notes/Future Plans
- I plan to add more mod attachments (some legendary) to certain mod groups, to make more use of Mutated creature parts
- I want a wide variety of options for armor attachments
- I want to make the upgrade attachments the real focus for gaining bonuses, not the armor itself
- I want upgrading your armor to have a progressive feel, so there's always something to work towards
- I want more options to buy/loot armor upgrades, so its not 100% tied to crafting

Horizon Setting Holotape
- (NEW) Poison FX: You can now toggle on/off some of the poison effects that appear on your character*
- NOTE: Not all poison effects may be included in the first version. 
- NOTE: This feature needs more testing!
*This effect can be toggled at any time, including when you already have poison already on you

Blur Removal Addon
- (NEW) Screen Blood Removal: The full version will install a BA2 archive which includes 1 texture that disables blood splatter on the screen*
*You can use this BA2 file with any blur removal version. Just copy or delete it in the data folder. The full version option in the installer automatically includes it.

(NEW) Camera Addon
- An optional addon can be selected, to remove camera shaking from FO4

Strict Carry Weight Addon
- Updated to support the Cargo Bot fix
- Updated mod tooltips

(NEW) Scrap Everything Patch (Optional)
>> NOTE: This patch is specifically tailored to what I personally want out of scrapping settlements. If you don't like it, don't use it!
>> My Goal: To be able to clean up settlements without the fear of accidentally deleting stuff that probably shouldn't be deleted
>> I limited what can be scrapped, so that it's safer to scrap areas without the fear of removing roads, sidewalks, foundations, and buildings.
- REQUIRES: Scrap Everything Ultimate v2.4 (All DLCs - I'm not making a patch for the regular version)
- Most scrap recipes are roughly balanced for Horizon, but its not fine-tuned or anything yet
- Most buildings, sidewalks, roads, bridges, large walls (i.e. permanent structures) are not scrappable
- Dirt hills, small grass, and large rocks are not scrappable
- Some recipes give no materials, such as removing corpses
NOTE: I've only tested this on Sanctuary, but you can freely scrap there without worrying about deleting structures. I'll tweak it as I go.

Developer notes for patch authors
- Using bandages, cargo bots, and memory devices will use a message form now, so you can translate those messages
- NOTE: I'm trying my best to use message forms from now on, for text messages, to make it easier for translations. I will attempt to update more of the older code in the future as I go.

Missing Patch Notes from 1.2.0

Armor Rebalancing - Armor Pieces
- (NEW) Armor pieces can be hidden/shown using a mod slot

Weapon
- Molotovs will now show a full description of what the fire damage does
- NOTE: Molotovs will appear with a legendary "star" (this is the only way to show the description)




Q: Can companions work jobs?
A: Yes, human/ghoul companions can be assigned to settler job stations. However, I have plans to make their own missions (and skills) eventually.

Q: What about Robots?
A: Robots don't count if you assign them. I plan to add special jobs that only work for robots, since some of the current job stations are too specific to humans.

Q: The "Resource->Misc" category is getting crowded.
A: I know. I'll figure something out. But this works fine for now.

Q: Can I remove the old ammo from settlers once they have a "Settler-Only" weapon?
A: Yes. The Settler-Only weapons use ammo that isn't visible to the player. By default, when you equip a weapon on a settler through the interface, it will give you all the old weapons/ammo automatically.

Q: The shredder doesn't seem all that efficient at saving me time to shred clothing.
A: It's designed to work best for the settler outfit system, and in the future I plan to have an option for your Cargo Bot 1-X automatically drop off clothing/armor into the shredder.

Q: I have player-created armor added, and it uses the Armorsmith attachment mods, is this ok?
A: It's fine. My main concern is making the base FO4 items automatically supported in Horizon. The Armorsmith mod slots are prefectly fine by themselves. If you want custom armor to use Horizon's mod system instead, it'll need a small patch.

Q: Why was charisma nerfed so hard?
A: Temporary charisma was WAY too unbalanced. It never made sense that you can stack so much charisma. It made actually having real charisma not mean anything. If you really want the benefits of charisma, you should have to put points into it.

Q: The carry weights on packs seem high since they add together?
A: I think they're ok, especially since my hardcore addon in the future may require you to carry a pack to get decent carryweight, since your starting value will be lower.


Feedback I'm looking for:
- Anything on the settler task/mission system
- Anything on the settler equipment outfitter system
- Bugs, oversights, problems, with anything

Special thanks to Kinggath for help with how to deal with certain parts of the settler assignment code.
