A beautiful new mod for Fallout: New Vegas provides a jolly psychic tumbleweed to the game as a critter companion in your celebration. Windy the Wind Brahmin is a psychic tumbleweed that you would be able to buy from some mutants at Brooks Tumbleweed Ranch when you’ve got the Wild Wasteland trait—you understand, the one which provides foolish jokes and bizarre stuff to the game.

“You may praise her, pet her, and when she’s in your celebration she’ll shoot a freakin’ candy psionic thoughts management beam which has an opportunity to make enemies’ heads explode upon loss of life. She additionally has a dozen or so strains of dialogue tied to the principle quest,” says creator DuncanWasHere, “Additionally, she flies. Gone are the times of damaged tumbleweed companion mods which can be extra annoying intrusive than novel.” 

I can solely assume that is a (very) deep minimize from the modding scene. You could find Windy the Wind-Brahmin on Nexusmods.

The mod comprises roughly 100 strains of dialogue for Windy, who’ll apparently even touch upon foremost quest stuff which is neat. Nonetheless, the mod creator does embrace one very ominous warning. “Warning,” it reads, “Windy is a foul affect and should coerce you into committing mindless, unspeakably brutal acts of violence on everybody round you. Set up at your individual danger!”

I am unsure how that makes Windy totally different from most Fallout companions, however I am going to take the warning anyway. For all that she appears harmful, Windy does have a screenshot where she’s carrying a cowboy hat, in order that appears good. And useful for distinguishing the brown-and-yellow tumbleweed from the exceedingly brown-and-yellow terrain of New Vegas’ panorama.

DuncanWasHere notes that it will be suitable “with just about the whole lot” besides different mods that mess with the unused Wind-Brahmin character from Fallout: New Vegas’ information. That is apparently a little bit of minimize content material that’s, similar to you suppose, residing tumbleweeds.

However Jon, you ask, why is the tumbleweed companion named Windy? See video, beneath, for solutions.
