Extended NeoScav Mod
This mod adds new recipes, items, a new lootable location and new graphics but I will keep expanding it with more stuff while trying to stay within the game lore and graphic style as close as possible. Here's a list of the new stuff in the mod:
Features in red will represent content only found in the old version of this mod and will not be re implemented in the new one because I never liked them or because they are too much of a hack, requiring to change vanilla content and the like.
Characters with this skill now get terrain bonuses when in certain hexes. This skill also allow players to look for alternate food sources, which are mainly bird eggs.
Characters with this skill can now port Apps from Smartphones to iSlabs and vice versa. The apps need to be put inside the laptop and the ingame modding is done via laptop encounter. The only cost of doing this is battery power.
Characters with this skill can now disassemble electronic devices for spare parts or repair them.
Knowledge in the use of needles and thread. Required skill for leather crafting, basic sewing tools and clothing.
A negative trait. It reduces awareness when sleeping, which means it's quite unlikely to be woken up by the presence of other NPCs.
A negative trait. It makes characters constantly crave for cigarettes. Failing to satisfy the need to smoke will add a number of small penalties. Characters might also suffer from headaches if not smoking for a while.
A negative trait. It makes characters constantly crave for alcohol. Failing to satisfy the need to at least reach the Minor Inebriation condition will add a number of small penalties. Characters might also suffer from vomiting.
A negative trait. It makes characters suffer from chronic asthma attacks, which have a small chance to be fatal. Inhalers are a must for them.
Not an actual faction. Loner NPCs are Psychos or Bandits who will attack anything on sight, including other loners. So far, they can only be encountered as looting accidents.
A faction of Tarp clad ninjas which are good at hiding and disappearing. They are mostly harmless and won't speak. They will pick up anything of value they find lying around in the open.
A new attack move that can only be used by Dogmen. It replaces the move Kick but it's quite similar, just a bit more deadly and does cutting damage instead of bruising damage. Also it has a chance to cause another cutting damage but minor, compared to the main one.
This move will distract the target for 1 turn, making them go investigate the noise and move 1 space away from you.
This move will distract you for 1 turn but it will make enemies a bit less likely to fear you. It's like the opposite of the Threaten move but it also affects other enemies because it technically reduces your threat lvl, making you look less of a danger.
Threaten with Torch/Flare
It allows you to scare away creatures that are fearful of fire or bright lights. A very useful tactic that can affect multiple targets and might save your life. It makes you really visible when used but it also has a chance to reveal hidden targets, since you don't need to see the target to be able to use it.
A move that can only be done while having a shield equipped. It makes you easier to hit but it also increases your armor value. It only helps against damage so other effects can still be applied to you, like being suppressed or staggered from a flurry of attacks.
Combat moves that only appear when riding a bicycle. It allows you to close in and retreat faster. Charging with a Bicycle also increases the melee damage for the next turn. Both need you to be at least 5 spaces sway from the target.
A handful for an Eye
This move will improve your odds of survival in a hard situation. Also known as pocket sand, this attack will stun the target and make them retreat 1 space away from you, giving you a precious turn to either escape or attack. It can only be done while fallen and characters with the strong and melee skill are unable to use this move. This move is not always available but unlike most moves, it can be used while recovering.
Engages into grappling combat with the target. There's a chance to miss but if you manage to get hold of someone, both will get a new set of moves depending on the role, Grappler/Grappled. Head Butt, Leg Trip, Pull Down, Get Up, All the Surrender moves and Taunt can be used while grappling.
This is basically the ability to deal damage while grappling. It's comparable to using fists and can sometimes miss. It will also have a chance to knock off the target's equipped weapons and vehicle. Always available for Grapplers but not always available for Grappled targets.
Similar to Melee Surge but can only be done while grappling. Always available for both Grapplers and Grappled. Cannot be used with a broken leg.
This will cause you to push the target away, breaking the hold. There's a chance for the target to get damage, fall and lose a turn. Always available.
This is similar to release but is only available for Grappled targets. It affects both the Grappled and Grappler. Both get a chance to get damage, fall and lose a turn. Not always available.
This move is available to Grappled targets only when the Grappler is fallen and vulnerable. It will attempt to switch Grappler/Grappled places, leaving the previously Grappled target with control of the grappling hold.
A move only available for Melee skilled Grapplers. It will bring both Grappler and Grappled to the ground, but only causing damage to the later. This move can miss, leaving the Grappler vulnerable and with a chance of falling down alone. Cannot be done if the target has a vehicle equipped.
This move can be used by both the Grappler and the Grappled and it will throw the target down 2-3 spaces away and cause damage. This move will naturally break the grappling hold. Cannot be done if the target has a vehicle equipped.
This move will prevent you and the target from using most moves for 2 turns. It will increase the chance of getting hit even more for the duration of the move so if the Grappler has allies, they will benefit of this. The Grappled target will still have small chances to escape this or to counter attack while being held back.
This move is only available for the Grappler. The grappler will attempt a choke hold, which will distract him for a turn and the target will be left having trouble breathing, that means all next moves will be more tiring for 5 turns, this state stacks so multiples choke holds will render the target blacking out/unconscious. If the target is blacking out but still struggling back, the next strangle hold will render them unconscious. If the target is unconscious and the Grappler decides to use the move again, it will strangle the target to death.
Only found in forest hexes, this is a dangerous place to look for food but if successful, you can obtain raven's eggs or a squirrel, if you are "unlucky" enough.
These can be found in suburban hexes. Potatoes and Carrots can be looted from this location and having the Botany Skill will increase looting chance and allow you to loot a bit more.

A rare item to loot, mostly in urban areas. There are 2 kinds, lockers with mechanical locks or with electronic locks. They cannot be carried and can only be interacted with via "use" button. May contain interesting loot but only a character with the lockpicking skill or the spoofer app can open them. Will consume a set of basic lockpicking tools regardless of their current condition.
There are two of these tools, Sewing Kits and Basic Sewing Needles. Sewing Kits are better in a lot of aspects but Basic Sewing Needles are more common and also craftable by characters skilled in Tailoring.
This lootable "crafting kit" can contain a variety of equipment for crafting and repair recipes. These tools are Monkey Wrench, Claw Hammer, Utility Cutter, Screwdriver, Pliers, Hacksaw and Duct Tape but they sometimes have other tools inside.
It needs powered batteries to work and all recipes that need it will also ask for Solder, which can be found mostly in Tool Kits. Used mostly to craft or repair mechanical and electronic devices.
Electronic Spare Parts
Electronic Spare Parts are needed in all electronic crafting and repair recipes. Players can get them from breaking or disassembling devices.
Most electronic devices can be repaired now. Devices that didn't degrade now will need maintenance. Most repair recipes will need the Electrician Skill, Screwdriver, Pliers, Soldering Iron and Solder, the device to be repaired, Spare Parts, Mechanical Parts and some recipes will ask for a second device for more specific parts.
Usually spawned inside some urban building, these can be repaired to get power siphoning, lighting, heat source, etc. They need the most materials to be repaired. They will also degrade and revert to their broken state with time but it will be a long time till that happens.
It's like a Sauce Pan but it cannot be used as weapon and it degrades quickly. Specially handy since Foil Scraps are very common.
It's similar to Sauce Pans but bigger and with the ability to store liquids and small items inside. They also don't degrade but cannot be used in combat.
It's used to make Moonshine or turn strong drinks into Pure Alcohol, mainly. To make one you need either the Medic or Botany skills, Pliers, a Pressure Cooker, a Sauce Pan, a Glass Bottle, a Copper Tubing, 7x Medium Shaft and 4x Medium String or Strong Tying Object.

Scrap Metal Knives
Weak makeshift knives. They can also be thrown at enemies, which makes them quite useful. To craft 4 of them, you will need a Heavy Blunt Object, Hacksaw, Scrap Metal and 8x Duct Tape for the handles.
Scrap Metal Machete
A medium sized sharpened blade. Not as sturdy as other melee weapons but it does good damage and it's also feared by most. To craft one, you will need a Claw Hammer, Hacksaw, Scrap Metal and 4x Duct Tape for the handle.
Scrap Metal Shield
A weak makeshift shield. It adds a new "Block" move in combat and can also be used to bash a target, which can push them 1 space away from you. To make one, you need a Claw Hammer, Hacksaw, Pliers, 2x Scrap Metal, 1x Rawhide Patch, 2x Strong Tying Object, and 5x Small Mechanical Parts.
Another DMC faction item. There's a chance DMC Guards will carry this instead of a pistol and holster. It's better than hitting with a rifle butt, which is not much, but it barely degrades and takes little inventory space. Still a deadly melee weapon in the hands of someone with the strong and melee skills.
It's better than a Scrap Knife in all aspects but it cannot be crafted. It can be found in stores or carried by NPCs.
It can be found in office or apartment buildings but it's really rare. There's also a tiny chance for NPCs to carry one. Fire Axes are powerful melee weapons and they also degrade slowly but each swing will give you a stackable condition that will make any future action tire you more and more.
Only available to Mechanics and skilled in Ranged. You need to combine two guns using Tool Kit equipment and 5 units of Lighter Fluid to clean/repair and reassemble a 100% condition gun. Repairing Makeshift guns is the same but the Ranged Skill is not required.
Cathcart North "Perforator" 12-gauge Sawoff Shotgun
It's the craftable Sawed off version of the "Perforator" Shotgun. It takes less room, it's lighter and does slightly more damage but its firing range has been greatly reduced and it makes less melee damage. You need a "Perforator" Shotgun and a Hacksaw to craft it.
"Outcast" .308 Makeshift Hunting Rifle
It is weaker than the original gun in every aspect. It can only hold one round but even with all its penalties, it's still a dangerous weapon. It can also be upgraded with a scope and shoulder sling.

Armor Piercing Rounds
AP rounds do the same damage as FMJ rounds but all of it is cutting damage and with a +1 penetration bonus. They are available for Handguns and Rifles.
Breach rounds are really weak for combat purposes but they can be used to loot locked storage sheds and metal lockers. They will most likely attract unwanted attention but are pretty valuable for those without the lockpicking skill. They are only available for Shotguns. They are also really rare so their market price is high.
This piece of equipment will make a .45 pistol do slightly less damage but a lot more deadly by reducing the chances to give away your position. It also increases the chances of to make the target lose sight of you when hit. The suppressor is only used when the gun is being held so it doesn't use extra inventory space.
Deltec Tactical Stock
The adjustable stock in on SBS4s shotguns are now a separated item mod. Using the shotgun without it takes less room and makes it possible to put it in a short shotgun holster but it gives penalties when firing the weapon, which are slightly less range and giving the "Vulnerable" condition.
Containers which can only fit ammunition inside. They are 3x3 in size but they can hold a good number of ammo. There are 3 different ones. Handgun ammo box, shotgun ammo box and rifle ammo box.
Torches and Flares
Torches can now be used to scare certain creatures like melonheads, dogmen and endfield horrors. They also provide some warmth when held. Flares are a more powerful version of torches and they are kinda common to find inside storage sheds and forest shacks. Flares can also illuminate an hex by just being dropped in one, making easier for you and others to be spotted. They are really easy to lit via right click menu, which also allows them to be lit in combat.
Powerful thrown weapon which can cause multiple wounds in one hit. You need to hold either a lighter or a torch to be able to use one.

You can now use the Hood in Hoodies by right clicking and choosing the option. It provides a bit of extra warmth at the cost of degrading speed. Bad Muthas wear the Hood in Hoodies so some of them can be identified more easily. Looters can pick up Hoodies with the Hood On and wear them like that, though.

Increases melee damage by 15%, decreases defense by 25%, increases tiredness rate by 100%, increases body temp by 3, which is 1 point more than corn-a-cola, gives the "Coughing Blood" condition when the effects are gone. Effects stack and can be used twice. It can be crafted with the Medic Skill, Makeshift Still, Medium Heat Source, 2x Water, a Spent Inhaler, 2x Hydrocodone Pill, 1x L-thyroxine Pill, 1x Soda.
It's a spray used by game hunters to mask their scent from animals. It's rare and only found in forests shacks or carried by Loner Hunters. The effects stack and have a duration of 10 "map" turns. Those with the Tracking Skill can make a weak, homemade version of Scent Killers. To make one, you need the Tracking Skill, a Medium Heat Source, a Large Water/Fire Proof Container, 2x Tannin Solution and 1x Spray Bottle.
OTHER GAMEPLAY CHANGES:
-Cryo Lightning has a different recipe. They also need a Soldering Iron, Solder, Spare Parts, etc.
-All Carving and Butchering recipes are hidden under 2 recipes. This will help to reduce the huge lists in long games.
-Cooking and Boiling recipes now need a Medium Heat Source only.
-Gathering resources from Forests and Water Sources now use an encounter system. This new system adds a fatigue or tiredness cost to gathering resources.
-Patchwork clothing and similar items now need the new Sewing tools to be made instead of Sharp Edge/Point tools.
-Added a new way to deal with the Dogman in Cryo Facility encounter. Using Mechanic, Electrician and Hacker skills will allow players to kill the Dogman and get access to its corpse after the encounter.
-Edited all vanilla recipes to get meat or meat and hide from corpses. They are now shorter in name and should stop causing bugs in the recipe list due to the number of recipes added by this mod.
-The "Drunk" condition has been replaced by stackable Minor Inebriation and Major Inebriation conditions. They are just like the drunk condition but with various lvls, they don't affect blood supply, they make it easier to fall asleep but harder to wake up by noise and will also render the player unconscious if stacked to high lvls.
-HVAC Vent can be turned On and Off via right click menu.
-Software use less room and electronic devices have less inventory space but it's done in such a way that you can store more hardware than before but less power or batteries.
-Dogman Fur Coat + Sharp Edge = 15x Small Chunk of Fur.
-Tool with Screwdriver + First Aid Kit + 2 Small Parts + 2 Medium Thread = First Aid Kit w/ Strap.
-First Aid Kits can only store certain items. Mostly small and thin items. Now they aren't the best shoulder storage item now but a different one.
-All lighters are refillable now. They cannot be used as payment in Zom Zom's. They cannot be used as light source when looting in the dark, giving torches more importance.
-Spears + 2 Medium Thread = Spears w/ Strap.
-Increase the sprite size of soup, stew, tallow and bark solution to 2x3 so they use all the room in containers for liquids.
-Increase the inventory size of the Soup Can to 2x3. It's still not possible to store normal liquids like water in these.
-Small changes to some vanilla items to change their "size" in containers. An example would be a pill bottle, which would be too small to be carried in a Travois but big enough to be carried in shopping carts.
-Tarp degrades now. Tarp is now really useful and being able to use the same Tarp indefinitely with the reverse recipes seemed a bit like an abuse.
-String degrades now. This is to promote the use of better quality straps in the use of makeshift bags and vehicles.
-Recipe to get a Small String from Rags and Footwear.
-Medium String is used only in some recipes now. Straps and Rope are referred to as Strong Fastener and some recipes will need either of the two.
-Edited most of the ranged attack types to make them more unique from each other. Too many changes to mention but some of them are a lot more different than they were before.
-Reduced the Melee damage from the strong skill from 50% to 25%. Breaking someone's leg with one punch was too unrealistic, IMO so I reduced this bonus. This affects all characters and creatures, not just the player.
-Dogman is a bit more resistant to pain. They do less damage due the the above change so I decided to make them resist longer.
-Changed the way suppression from ranged weapons work. Now, even if you fail, it will still force the target to take cover and lose a turn. It will also affects the target's awareness, which means it will be easier for them to lose sight of you.
-Broad Spear, Greenwood Bow and crude arrows can be partially reversed now. Since the wood was worked, it made no sense to reverse them to tree branches.
-Alternate hidden recipe to make a Travois. To make this other one you need 6x Strong Fastener instead of 12x Medium String.
-Gas Mask Filters can be taken out of the masks now.
-Ammo no longer stacks since it comes inside containers now. Most guns now use ammo feeding devices like magazines and clips.
-Most guns hold different amounts of ammo now.
-Foil Scraps degrade now.
-Foil Poncho now needs 90 Foil Scraps to be made instead of 60 and 10 Duct Tape instead of sewing.
-NPCs have more chances to have ammo for their slings and bows.
-The Gauss Rifle now has a different recipe and it now needs a tool kit and a deltec rifle stock instead. It also has a different look.
-Multitools can now be closed and opened via right click menu. When closed, they only use 1x3 inventory space but most of their tools cannot be used, only the blade.
-Plastic bags and chip bags can now be left "always open" so they can fit in a travois.
-The move Tackle cannot be done at 0 distance now.
-The move Charge! will make the next melee attack 10% stronger. The effects only last for a turn.
-Tin Cans turn into Unlabeled Tin Cans when used in crafting. They can also be found as loot and carried by NPCs.
-Different sprite for Sound Traps. They are now unlabeled tin cans.
-New graphics for the Revolver.
KNOWN BUGS AND ISSUES:
-Activating the Hood in Hoodies and Tarp Cloaks while wearing them won't be reflected in the main map character pic until you take it off and wear it again. It's only a graphical issue, the stats apply with no problems.
-Due to the increased amount of new recipes, late games load the crafting menu slower than usual.
Modding is hard but a lot has been achieved with the help of the developer, the mods and the modding community. Thank you all! :3
