Fallout & Fallout 2 and mods

Recommended Posts

If you're still interested in playing the original games here are a few mods to try, they are both good mods with substantial content...

Fallout 1.5: Resurrection (website)

Fallout of Nevada (see NMA General Modding section)

Spoiler

Nevada, which I've currently been playing, is actually a Russian mod with somewhat complete English translation. Takes place in the same region with additional cities such as Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. See the LP video below. It's a bit tricky to install as you have to install English translation files on top of the actual game. There are multiple ways to download it. I got it from this link. You should also download this patch and this script fix (which goes into \master.dat\text\english\dialog\ folder). Read the readme inside the Translation Patch.zip first! I recommend installing it into a VM like I always do. I'm using my own scripts (perk for each level, gain more XP etc.) they all seem to work with Nevada. Let me know if you want them too.

If only Fallout 2 was easier to mod and had proper tools for modding...

      While I don't agree with everything he says in this video, he did point out many things that were true. The only reason Fallout New Vegas didn't have the success Fallout 3 did is because of the short window of development on Obsidian. And the games had over 200 bugs at launch because Bethesda and their obsession for Gamebryo. What else could Obsidian do about that? Not much. A short time of development and working with a heap of shit game engine. Yet, they did do a real good job. So for Bethesda to see this as a failure for not meeting their expectations, I fully disagree with that. For the amount of time they had and the resources they used on a horrible game engine, it did fine.
      Now what makes me cringe is that fact that so much content was stripped because (as always) they have to appeal to console systems. If they would have given Obsidian more time for development, which means New Vegas being more depth and the addition of the cut content never being cut to begin with, and more time to work out the bugs to top that off, it would of sold more than Fallout 3. And they could of just cut out that content for the console gamers due to restrictive hardware and memory for the console version. But companies don't like to spend more time and money doing that so they just go with the dumbing down PC version to meet the requirements for console systems.
      I never thought I'd defend New Vegas since it's not a game I much like, but back then when I was criticizing it, I was doing so off of my experience itself and not including the factors like the short time of development. Because I didn't really care to know more than what I knew about that game.
      And the reason why I'm even mentioning this is because I among many others would like to see Obsidian return to make another Fallout sequel. But given that it seems Bethesda wasn't too happy with the outcome of New Vegas, I feel like that is not going to happen.

      Requires the assets from http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/42835/?. You don't need to have its esp enabled, just the assets in your game.
      General stuff...
      This is graphically intense and may suffer from low frame rates on lower spec machines, your game must be 4GB enabled.
      The entrance is a trap door between the Goodsprings pub and store. 
      The Navmesh isn't perfect but there are no real serious problems.
      There are invisible walls around the rocks to keep NPCs from getting stuck on them.
      If you use a mod that adds rain then it will rain indoors, this is an engine issue present since Morrowind
      NMM will tell you this is an ESM, the master flag was set to correct navmesh oddities. 
      The lights are on a timer, if you first arrive at night and everything is dark then wait 24 hours, that will get the script started and the lights will switch on and off as intended after that.
      The evenings are slightly longer than standard, I'm a sucker for sunsets.
      This mod is released "As is", no further development will be happening, you are however free to improve upon it.

      View File Precious Companion
      This adds a companion called "Precious" to the Goodsprings pub, those who freqent the Nexus New Vegas Imageshare will probably know who she is. Those who don't can find out by going to my profile picture tab over there, there you'll find plenty of pictures as well as comics and links to larger comics. Not that you need to know anything about her to use her. 
      Requirements.
      Mojave Delight by Glosshouse.
      Eyelashes New Vegas by Throttlekitty.
      (Optional) Mojave Delight Coolhair Replacer will improve hair texture.
      Suggested sources for clothing....
      Kristinas Closet for Type 3 and Breeze by jonas
      Rivens Goodsprings Vendor_Plus Mannequins

      Installation...
      Install the two required mods, the esps don't have to be enabled but the assets must in your game. 
      Drop the esp from this into your data folder.
      Enable the esp from this with the manager of your choice, not the games own launcher, it's crap.
      Travel to the Goodsprings Pub and she'll be wondering about in there.
      To Uninstall...
      Delete the esp.
      That's it. 
       
      FAQ...
      Q, Does she have a companion Wheel? 
      A, Yes and it works.
      Q, Why is NMM/FOMM/My cat telling me it's ESM when the extension says ESP?
      A, The master flag is set to avoid a possible head/body texture mismatch that can happen with custom NPCs.
      Q, Is she also playable?
      A, Yes but she only has one set of eyes and hair, you'd have to add more if you want a different look.
      Q, Is she voiced?
      A, No, being a guy I can't do it and my better half being as supportive as ever didn't want to know. 
      Credits....
      cgy95 for his great Video tutorial
      Rexus3, Brigand231, FastBlackCat and Angrod88 for testing.
      Glosshouse and Throttlekitty for assets that make this possible. 
      And a special shout out to all those in the imageshare who over the last two years plus have commented, supported and endorsed my stuff, you guys have been great. 
      Permissions: Ask, I'll probably say yes, I just don't want her turned into a mutant or hooker.
