Hello everyone!

 

Totally new to modding, I want to understand some things!

 

Long story short: I don't like real name guns in my game. So I started to mess around with fo4edit to edit them and my immersion is saved.

 

But I have a question: I tried to edit the Mauser Pistol to change it to Chinese Pistol. And I got surprised when in game, the weapon showed up as "Chinese Pistol Pistol"

(The same happened with the M1 Garand, where I changed it to Battle Rifle, but couldn't get rid of the "M1" tag-thing, so, iin game after my edit, the gun showed up as "M1 Battle Rifle")

 

So my guess was that there's some kind of tag that automatically applied the word Pistol to the gun.

My workaround here was to simply edit the FULL - Name space with just "Chinese"... It works in game but it feels... weird.

 

So, how do I find this tag thing? Is there a way to remove it?

 

Thanks for your help!

Weapons and some of their Object Mods (OMOD) have Instance Namings so renaming them is not that simple. (To remove the Instance Naming from a weapon: Creation Kit >> your Weapon >> Instance Naming >> Select "NONE" from the dropdown menu).

Thank you for your answer, I managed to do it with one weapon, but not the other, I guess it's because there's so many mods linked to it... I'll keep trying! Thx again
