I would just like to mention that Killap's unofficial patch also adds new sprites for your team members so you can see the armor they are wearing.
It may sound a bit silly, but it's one of the main reasons why I use that patch.
I had killap's patch installed and it was causing me a ton of bugs, most notably I couldn't enter Westin's ranch in NCR because after talking to the cop he would go to the console to disable the laser beams, but the beams themselves would remain there preventing me access. Removed the patch and it worked. Tbh I think it causes more hassle than good, but then again it may be just me.
