Being a lazy person that I am, I didn’t want to have to run or walk through the entire wasteland. Nor did I want to rely on fast-travel to get around. Although, that is the job of the courier to walk the roads of the wasteland to deliver the packages or whatever else.
The reason why I wanted this mod stemmed from the thought I had when I played Fallout 3. If your character or NPCs had a repair skill or science skill of a 100, surely he/she should been able to salvage parts from the vehicles strewn across the wasteland to have a mode of transportation? There are plenty of cars, motorcycles and bicycles around the wasteland.
So when I found out about Advanced J3X Motorcycle, it was the perfect solution.
Kaz did want me to get a vetribird. While that suited his tastes (admittedly, it’d be cool to fly around in a badass vetribird), it didn’t seem to fit with my style of immersion in-game. I wanted the vehicle to suit my character’s personality, skills or at least seem reasonable enough for me to rationalize how they came into possession of a working motorcycle. While I could also rationalize how my character would have gotten the vetribird, the motorcycle made a lot more sense to me.
This mod does need NVSE (new vegas script extender) and FOMM (fallout mod manager). I am not sure but I couldn’t seem to get FOMM to install the mod for me automatically like oblivion mod manager did for the files. So what I did instead was to use FOMM to extract the files then install it manually into my data folder.
What I really enjoy about this mod is the fact you can call it to wherever you are, customize it using the items in the motorcycle storage and tweak the speed to how you want it. However, it may mess with your controls since when I first installed it; it messed with all my default keyboard settings. There are also mods that change the bike’s appearance to a chopper and so on. There’s a mod that gives the bike better textures so you would want to use the default upgrades for your bike. The azure knight looked very odd to me, till I saw the new textures made by someone else for this bike. Will have to consider getting it soon.
Very fun to ride using this motorcycle. Really easy to use as well.
