TTW JIP CCC Unlimited Hiring Patch

Allows hiring RL-3, Charon, and Clover with unlimited companions without needing to first fire other companions.

As a side effect of how this is done, Tinker Joe, Ahzrukal, and Eulogy cannot be force-recruited with JIP CC&C.

Note: It is already possible to hire unlimited companions with JIP CCC and TTW, but the "sold" companions can only be hired if they are the only critter (RL-3) or humanoid (Clover/Charon) -- This ONLY applies to the INITIAL hiring. You can re-hire later with any number in your party.

There is already a workaround: firing Dogmeat/ED-E/Rex before hiring RL-3 and then re-hiring Dogmeat/ED-E/Rex (and the same applies to the humanoids).

This mod makes it so the workaround isn't needed.

Why does it happen?
* JIP CCC includes a check during the unlimited companions where it only changes the companion flag during dialog with a companion. It does this by seeing if the person you're in dialog with has a variable named "waiting" in their script. Normally, Tinker Joe/Eulogy/Ahzrukal don't have this because they're not companions.

How does this fix it?
* This plugin just adds a "waiting" variable to the three companion-selling npc's.

Why does it break force-recruiting of the sellers?
* The force-recruit in JIP CCC checks the same "waiting" flag as the unlimited unlocker does. It does this so that you don't force-recruit an actual normal companion and break its script/quest stuff.

Hey, first thank you for your patch and all the TTW work you do. The link seems to be broken because the file is "in user's trash".

Does this work? The link doesn't work anymore but I'm trying to hire Clover in Paradise Falls and I have Jericho and Dogmeat with me and it won't let me and tells me I can only have one humanoid and one non-humanoid follower.
