Fallout: New Vegas Base ID Sheet
So now that the new Fallout: New Vegas have been released, we need a new list of so called Base ID‘s of all items in the new game. These are most often (if not always) used to spawn any item in-game via the console.
I have just compiled exactly such a list, download here (Open Document Spreadsheet format).
Spawning items via console
To spawn an item in-game, open the console by hitting the “~” (tilde) key, then type in:
player.additem [BaseID] [Number]
You need to replace [BaseID] with the base id of the item you wish to spawn, and [Number] with the quantity of the item you which to spawn.
E.g. If I want to spawn some .308 Rounds I look up the Base ID and find it to be 0006B53C, I then hit the “~” key and type:
player.additem 0006B53C 10
And hit enter. Now I would receive 10 .308 Rounds.
The first part of the spreadsheet, is an extracted list optimized for printing, with all the most commonly used items (ammunition, weapon mods and weapons).
The second part of the spreadsheet, is a complete list of all items in the game with rows for the Base ID (called Form ID here), Editor ID, Type and Name, all of which is filterable via the drop-down boxes for quick access to specific types of items.
From here you can find e.g. all armor items by filtering Type to “ARMO”.
List of NPC’s
Altough the primary purpose of the list is for item codes, the list actually contains a lot more data than that. If you switch to the “Complete list” sheet, you will have access to a large amount of Form ID codes for various things in the game, such as NPC’s. All you have to do is select the appropriate type from the dropdown menu of the “Type” field, so say you are seeking a NPC Form ID, you shall select the “NPC_” type. The type names are from within the G.E.C.K utility, so they are all shortened to four letter words, some are easy to guess (such as “NPC_”) while others are a bit more tricky (like “RCCT”).
Interesting types of Form ID names, are:
- ALCH – Items used in alchemy (like “Human Flesh”, “Hydra” etc.)
- ARMO – Armors, Gloves etc.
- BOOK – Well, books
- CCRD – Playing cards (if you ever wanted a complete set)
- CDCK – Complete decks
- CELL – Names of the cells (places) in the game
- CMNY – Various currency items (like NCR $)
- KEYM – Various keys for accessing stuff
- NPC_ – All standard game NPC’s
- PERK – Well all the perks you can acquire
Those are the most interesting, but there are plenty of stuff in there, just waiting to be discovered.
So go ahead and download it from below, and enjoy.
