Hello, to all the very talented MOD Authors, I'd like to make sort of a personal request. I'm hoping that maybe this idea will catch the eye of some enterprising Modder and become reality.
When I started my PC playthrough of Fallout 4, I went through the opening sequence of story narrative. I discovered ...my Player/Hero is descended from a long line of military service, with special notice given to an ancestor that fought in World War 2. *imagination goes PING* Then I find that my Player/Hero is due to be a speaker at the local VFW on the day that the bombs fall, giving rise to the idea that my Player/Hero could be a bit of a war hero. *imagination PINGS again* Then through no fault of his/her own, my Player/Hero becomes trapped in a situation that leaves him frozen and when he/she finally awakens, He (or She) is a "Person out of Their Time". *imagination goes PING once more*.....So then after exploring the Vault I finally start to head out into the upper world and...they give me the option to change my Player/Heros name. I grin. Suddenly my game play has new meaning, as 'Stephen Rogers' makes his way into the Fallout 4 world.
Some of you have already guessed where I am going with this. I am playing the game as a descendant of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. So, I would like to request a MOD that allows shields in general to be used in Fallout 4, and more specifically, I would like that same mod to have a sort of a minor quest to find (or to create) a very special heavy duty shield (that can be painted with a patriotic color scheme) and used within the game.
yes, I know this is sort of a single-minded Mod idea, but the usage of a shield isn't a bad idea. I'm not asking for the ability to toss it around like a frisbee and produce multiple richochets between enemies. I'm playing with the idea that my Hero is a descendant, not the actual Captain America.
Anyway, if nothing else I think this idea is creative, and who knows...a lot of people might like carrying a shield in their game.
Thanks for reading
P.S. a mod that creates a vault style skintight costume/uniform with a bit of a 'Commander America' theme would also be greatly appreciated....lol
