The Sole Survivor owned a dog before the war. Presumably he/she knows how to trim dog nails. I found the “click click click” sound effects annoying; I fully expect no one else to care. This mod simply replaces the sound of Dogmeat walking on wood and stone surfaces with the sounds that are used for dirt. It works for me, but I can’t promise it won’t break your game. Sorry the video is kind of janky; I was recording onto the same HDD.
1. Unzip into your Data directory (maintain folder hierarchy)
2. Edit your Fallout4.ini file in your Documents\My Games\Fallout4\ directory as follows:
Change “sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\” to “sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, SOUND\” If you are using a texture mod, you’ll change it to “sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\, SOUND\”
Thanks to Gorgulla for sharing how to change the filepath in their texture mods, and to jonwd7 for creating the Bethesda Archive Extractor.
