Help me keep heather alive!
« on: September 15, 2012, 06:22:10 AM »
Greetings modbase, I do not want heather to die, but I also do not want to make her go away. In the unofficial patch there is a way to save her by telling her to stay indoors, but I missed this opportunity, not knowing what it was at the time. I wish to know if there is a way through modifying the game code that I could make sure heather isn't killed after the fact (keep in mind I have the latest version of compmod installed and nothing else) thanks in advance for the help!

Also as a bonus side-note, I would like to know if by using compmod you can gain Venus (the Confession sexy-bish) as a companion. On the compmod home page in the spoilers section she has a stat block, but the section doesn't say how to get her D:

I'm not sure about this, but afaik, compmod is built on a version of the patch from before the Save Heather option was included.
Making it possible would require editing two python scripts. In bradbury.py look for the function def heatherCheck(): , and make sure, the first if statement looks like this: if(G.Heather_Drank == 1 and G.Heather_Haven == 1 and G.Heather_Gone == 0 and G.Heather_Kill == 0 and G.Heather_Indoors == 0 and not __main__.IsDead("Heather")):
then edit vamputil.py: find def heatherHaven(): here the second if line should look like this: if((G.Heather_Gone or (G.Story_State >= 75 and G.Heather_Indoors == 0)) and heather):
In both cases you probably have to add the G.Heather_Indoors == 0 part.
When this is done, start the game as usual, and before sou set out for Hallowbrook hotel, enter G.Heather_Indoors = 1 in the console. And of course for future games, you also have to edit the Heather dialog. If you wnt to do it, send me a pm.

For Venus, I can't help you.

Wait a minute kiddo. Why dont you simply grab heather before the hallowbrook quest, keep her for that and the next quest, then leave her home? If you let her follow you, she's just like any other companion- invincible.

Also, it's actually impossible to take over venus, although you can take over the blood doll there.
