Fallout 3 Mod Compilation
« on: January 11, 2020, 23:21 »
Hi there wastelanders! I decided some time ago to play again Fallout 3 with a bunch of mods I read about on the internet. After some time testing and playing some awesome games I decided to do a compilation for future use and I thought that probably someone in this community might be interested, so I made a guide for quicker installation that will probably save you some time and headaches if you are planning to give Fallout 3 another try . I really had a LOT of fun with the last games I played, and I can say that all these mods reshape the game completely, making it something much better from the original.

This is a pretty stable custom mod compilation for Fallout 3 wich includes many popular upgrades to the vanilla game, avoiding overloads and priorizing the gameplay over the graphical optimization. For that reason I've not included big texture packs (wich are pretty easy to find and add to this compilation) and I've selected the most intuitive and easy to use and install mods from Fallout Nexus (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/). After lots of trial & error and a couple of games that sums arround 160 gameplay hours, I can say that this compilation works pretty fine on a relatively old computer. I am not sure if this compilation will fit with the tastes of everyone, wich is turning F3 in a realistic hardcore game (widely configurable via the in-game mod menus that most of the big mods include, anyway). If you enjoy tactical approaches over action, thinking twice before engaging an enemy or make your low level first steps a real survival crusade in the harsh environment the wasteland should be, enhancing also the action and roleplay features, this compilation is for you.

Mod List and quick description

- Enhanced Weather(Enhanced Weather - Rain and Snow v2) - AMAZING, yet a bit buggy. You won't love rain when you get stuck in some lost shack, out of food, water and... RadAway. Yes, now rain is radioactive as it should be (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/6170).

I'm a bit late but RobCo Certified is a must have for me ever since I discovered it, it lets you hack, repair, and build robots, both vanilla ones and new crazy ones with the right perks:
https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/712

Wasteland Player is a very naughty mod which I very much enjoyed, it's wonky at times and has no voice acting and the dialogue goes by too fast most of the time, it's not animated but it really tickled my pickle:
https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/2273?tab=description

I'll add some more if anything else comes to mind.
