Zumbs’ Console Mod

Wearing the console goggles


This mod adds a set of goggles to the players inventory that allows the player to open the console by equipping the goggles. It is intended for people that are unable to open the console by conventional means, and have tried the recommendations on http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Console#Bugs, such as disabling the IR drivers.

When you load up the mod, a pair of “Console Goggles” is added to your inventory (for a new game, they are added after Amata has spoken to you during the Escape). Equipping them opens the console. It is recommended to hotkey them as this allows you to open the console with your pipboy closed.

This mod is a remake of VISTA Console Mod by Rapier_21. The reason for a remake is to increase compatiblity and ease of use (this mod comes as a FOMOD ready archive).
