War never changes."[/B] -The Narrator [I][B]The World[/B][/I] The Great War is the single most important event that has shaped the Fallout world into its current form. On October 23, 2077, the United States, China, and other nuclear-armed countries bombarded each other with a rapid exchange of nuclear missiles and bombs lasting for only two hours. The destruction caused by the brief nuclear war was staggering; more energy was released in the early moments of the war than in all previous global conflicts combined. The Fallout games take place 90 years to 2 centuries after the Great War as humanity struggles to survive and rebuild. Some groups have barely managed to survive above ground, either scavenging the scorched ruins of cities or surviving and adapting to the new irradiated environment through mass mutation. Communities that were sealed in underground Vaults during the war are now emerging to re-populate the blasted landscape. Striving to organize and sustain the human race, these tattered remnants of civilization are threatened by psychotic mutants, rogue machines, vicious raiders, and all manner of hostile mutant creatures. The first two games take place mostly in the area known as the Core Region on the West Coast of the post-apocalytpic United States, where the main threats so far have been the Master and the Enclave, while the third game takes place in the Capital Wasteland on the East Coast of the United States.

You will take the role of a Vault-dweller, a person who has grown up in a secluded, underground survival Vault. Circumstances arise that force you to go Outside -- to a strange world 80 years after the end of the modern civilization. A world of mutants, radiation, gangs and violence. Your immediate task is to find a replacement for the broken water purification controller chip. Without that chip, your fellow Vault dwellers are doomed to dehydration or be forced to leave the safety of the Vault for the Outside. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game, developed and published by Interplay in 1997, is the first game in the Fallout series. The game was initially intended to use Steve Jackson Games' GURPS system, but when that deal fell through, Interplay created its own system, S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Fallout is seen as the "spiritual successor" to Interplay's classic 1987 CRPG Wasteland. [B][I]Gameplay[/I][/B] Fallout is a role-playing game with turn-based combat and an isometric view.

The village elders have selected you to wear the sacred Vault-suit of your grandsire and, in time, to ascend to the leadership of your people. First you must prove your devotion to your people. Your tribe needs help. If you are truly the Chosen One, then you alone are capable of claiming the heritage of the Vault Dweller, to take back your birthright. Among the many wonders described in hallowed yellow pages of the Vault Dweller's Survival Guide is the Garden of Eden Creation Kit. The GECKTM is said to have the power to turn the harsh Wastes into a fruitful paradise. The Vault Dweller's Survival Manual promises the redemption of the GECKTM to all Vault Dwellers. Your tribe has survived over ten-years of drought but now their reserves are at an end. You must find Vault 13 and claim the technology that your tribe needs to survive. If you fail in this quest—your tribe will surely die. You must travel the perilous Wastes on a holy quest to find Vault 13. The same Vault that cruelly cast your grandsire out into the Wastes 80 years ago. The Vault owes you. The Vault owes your tribe. Now it's time to collect. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout 2: A Post-Nuclear Role Playing Game is the sequel to the original Fallout game. Released in 1998, it was officially developed by Black Isle Studios, which by that point had become a full-fledged design outfit [B][I]Gameplay[/I][/B] Fallout 2's gameplay is similar to the original Fallout. It's a role-playing game with turn-based combat, where the player plays the game in the pseudo-isometric view.

The vault has reportedly been sealed for 200 years until the player's father opens the only door to the outside world and disappears without any explanation. The Vault Overseer believes that the player was involved in their father's escape, and sends the vault's security force to arrest him. This leaves the player little choice but to also escape from the vault, with the hope of locating his father and finding out why he left. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic computer and console action role-playing game developed and published by Bethesda Softworks as the third installment in the Fallout series and a sequel to Interplay's Fallout and Fallout 2.

By offering protection to villages of tribals, the Brotherhood is able to draft recruits from among the tribals. At the beginning of the game, the player character is an Initiate, a new recruit to the Brotherhood, tasked to lead a squad of soldiers made up of available initiates. Raiders in the area are the first challenge to the Brotherhood's authority, so the player's squad of initiates is dispatched to kill the bandit leaders and mop up the bandit threat. As the campaign against the raiders succeeds in dispersing them into the wasteland, the player character is accepted fully into the Brotherhood and learns the eventual goal of the Brotherhood: a campaign west across the Great Plains towards the Rocky Mountains in search of Vault Zero, the one-time nucleus and command center of the pre-war vault network, where the most senior government, scientific and military leaders were housed and the highest technology available was maintained. [B][I]Background [/I][/B] Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel or simply Fallout Tactics, developed by Micro Forté and published by Interplay in 2001, is the third title in the Fallout series, but is not a traditional RPG (so it wasn't entitled Fallout 3). Instead, Fallout Tactics focuses on squad-based combat and introduces near real-time combat, called "continuous turn-based" by the developers, as well as a multiplayer mode, to the Fallout series. The plot of the game takes place in the American Midwest rather than the West Coast, as the previous Fallout titles did. Because of numerous inconsistencies with previous Fallout games, Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is not considered part of the official Fallout canon except for its pivotal events. [B][I]Gameplay[/I][/B] Unlike the previous two Fallout games, Fallout Tactics emphasizes tactical combat and strategy. Players are not able to respond to non-player characters, but they can still trade and gamble. Instead of towns.

The player chooses to control one of three initial characters: Cain, Cyrus, or Nadia, all of whom have pledged their services to the Texas Brotherhood of Steel and have become Initiate. With the help of familar faces such as The Vault Dweller from the Fallout, Harold the Mutant, who has been featured in every game to date , And Rhombus, Leader of the Brotherhood of steel paladin's. The player must find the Secret Vault and kill the mutant Attis. [i][b]Background[/b][/i] Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel actually had many inconsistencies with Fallout 1 and 2, Such as The Vault Dweller, or the protagonist of Fallout, being out of California and into texas. This has made the game be considered "Non-cannon" [i][b]Gameplay[/b][/i] This game was different, in the sense that it wasn't free roamable, once you passed a place that was it, if you forgot something well then thats shit luck for you. It was also only on the PS2 and Xbox.

Fallout: New Vegas will take place in 2280, 3 years after the events of Fallout 3 and 39 years after Fallout 2, making this installment set the farthest in the series. The New California Republic will play a major part in the story, in a three way struggle between the NCR, the Caesar's Legion slavers, and the local New Vegas populace. The player will play as a courier, who was left to die in a shallow grave, rescued by a TV Robot named Victor, and patched up by a Doctor Mitchell. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout: New Vegas is an upcoming role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. While New Vegas is not a direct sequel, it will use the same engine and be in the same style as Fallout 3, and is being developed by some of the people who worked on previous Fallout games at Black Isle Studios. It will be set in and around post-apocalyptic Las Vegas (New Vegas). It has a projected release date of Fall 2010 and will be available on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. [B][I]Gameplay[/I][/B] The gameplay will be very similar to Fallout 3's Gameplay, the player will be able to switch between 1st and 3rd person, and VATS will return.

[B][I]Background[/I][/B] Project V13 is the codename of an unannounced massively multiplayer online game being developed by Interplay and Masthead Studios. Chris Taylor, one of the creators of Fallout, is one of the lead developers. Jason Anderson, one of the other makers of Fallout, was involved in the project between 2007 and 2009, but has since left the team. [B][I]Beta[/I][/B] Fallout Online now has a website where you can sign up for the beta, which is speculated to be in 2012.

Because of this the player was given a choice. He could be an innocent that was imprisoned because of some misunderstanding, or he could choose to be a criminal and take bonus traits that would bolster some of his skills. The player would awaken in a prison cell, but not the one he remembered falling asleep in. Suddenly the floor rocks violently from an explosion and the player is knocked unconscious. When he awakens he finds his cell door open and a hole in the wall leading outside. Leaving the prison, he is under attack by some unknown assailant. Deciding that discretion is the better part of valor, the player flees into the night to explore his new world. Unfortunately, his new found freedom may be short lived. The player is relentlessly pursued by robots who want to return him to the prison. As he explores the world and tries to outwit his pursuers, he begins to uncover an underlying plot. Why was he in a different prison than the one he fell asleep in? Why can't he remember being transferred? What was the attack on the prison about in the first place? Then he finds out about NCR's problems, and a few things don't add up. Eventually, the player would discover the true reason behind the prison and the attack on it. It turns out that through extensive research, the mad scientist called Presper, disgusted with what the world turned into after the War, discovered the history of New Plague, the virus that FEV was initially created to cure, and its genocidal potency, and also discovered a viable means to cleanse the world. Using ULYSSES, the quarantine prison, and a ballistic satellite known as B.O.M.B.-001, the way to human planetary domination and order became clear. He needed to get to B.O.M.B.-001 and use the nuclear weapons to clean the filth and wretch that currently occupied the surface. Presper and his followers released the New Plague virus in the remote areas near Boulder and Denver. It was close enough to the quarantine prison to spur ULYSSES into action, but not near enough to cause huge populations to start a general panic. Once enough people were infected and ULYSSES “arrested” enough people to just about fill up the prison, Presper’s men would stage an attack on the prison which would allow everyone to escape. This event would start a countdown of sorts for missile launch on B.O.M.B.-001. ULYSSES would assess the viral spread, try to gather up the escaped prisoners, and once 90% of the prisoners had been retrieved, launch nuclear missiles to “clean & prevent” any further infection. By the time this happened Presper had planned to be on, and in full control, of B.O.M.B.-001 and reprogramming targeting solutions to clean the areas he wanted. Humans of his choosing would wait out the second nuclear holocaust in the Boulder Dome, until the day came where he declared the Earth safe for pure blood humans once more. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Van Buren was the project name Black Isle Studios assigned to their version of Fallout 3. The game was going to use an engine that Black Isle had made for Baldur's Gate 3, commonly referred to as the Jefferson Engine. It was fully 3D. Black Isle Studios planned to include a dual combat system in the game that allowed for the player to choose real time or turn-based combat, due to Interplay's demands, though Josh Sawyer had stated that the emphasis would be on the turn-based version. Co-operative multiplayer was also going to be included in the game, again because of publisher requirements. In 2003, the game was canceled and the Black Isle employees were laid off. At that time the engine was about 95% done. You could create characters, use skills, perform both ranged and melee combat, save/load games, and travel across maps. A tutorial level was done that would let the designers do all of the above. All areas but one had been designed. About 75% of the dialogues were done and at least 50% of the maps. BIS already had many of the character models and monster models.

[B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2, also known as Vagrant Lands, was the canceled sequel to Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. The development started before the release of the first game, and it was almost complete when Interplay laid off most of their employees in 2004 __________________________________________________ __________________ [IMG]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070510104552/fallout/images/thumb/5/54/Croc2.jpg/250px-Croc2.jpg[/IMG] [I][B]Fallout Tactics 2[/B][/I] [B][i]Story[/i][/B] The game took place toward the Southeast of the USA, as far as Florida, and the major conflict was to be between man and nature. The Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel was to be portrayed as even more fascist and oppressive, and as BOS only in name. The basic premise was that a GECK had been irradiated, and so the "Garden of Eden" it created was full of mutant plants and fungi. It begins to spread fairly rapidly, preying upon animal life and using them as carriers/fertilizer to spread its fungal seed. The player basically gets tasked with discovering the source and a way to put an end to it. You had got accelerated regrowth, and nature reclaiming the wasteland, but because it also wants to get rid of humans, there's a real moral ambiguity to it. Unlike its predecessor, it would feature Combat Armors. Mutant crocodiles were also going to appear. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout Tactics 2 was a cancelled sequel to Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. developed by Micro Forté. Pre-production started shortly before the release of the first game and it was cancelled around December 2001. After the game started selling rather poorly, the sequel was canned by Interplay. After it was cancelled, a petition to save it was started by a fan of Tactics. __________________________________________________ __________________ [IMG]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/thumb/b/bb/Fallout_Extreme_Logo.png/250px-Fallout_Extreme_Logo.png[/IMG] [I][B]Fallout eXtreme[/B][/I] [B][i]Story[/i][/B] It is unclear when exactly the game was going to take place. According to the summary in a design document, "almost a century has passed" since the Great War, but it's probably just an error that would have been fixed in the final version of the game, just like the "I was born just after the bombs fell" in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. The Brotherhood of Steel (judging from the concept art, probably the Midwestern branch from Fallout Tactics), the "once silent organization", has been expanding and seizing more and more territory under their control. Their area of influence stretches as far as Alaska, where the Brotherhood's new headquarters is now located. The Brotherhood's agenda "leaves little room for the survival of radiation or FEV outbreak victims". Local humans are either drafted into the Brotherhood's ranks as cannon fodder or enslaved, and mutants are outright eradicated. It is the Brotherhood that the player would oppose during the first half of the game. The player controls a squad of revolutionaries known as The Cause. Throughout the game, it would gain momentum, starting in Oregon, Washington and Canada. Each reclaim town would vow loyalty to the player's cause. However, after defeating the Brotherhood, the player would learn why the Brotherhood set out to Alaska in the first place. The rebels must now venture across the Bering Strait, through Russia and Mongolia and finally into China, in order to destroy the Doom's Day Missile that could obliterate what is left of America. The endgame would take place within the Forbidden City, where the Chinese Emperor resides. Among the factions encountered along the way would be the Issaquah Nation, the Inuits, the Montauk, the Horde of Huns, Siberian Cossacks and finally the Army of the Golden Tiger and New Imperial Guard. [B][I]Background[/I][/B] Fallout Extreme was a canceled squad-based first- and third-person tactical game for the Xbox, using the Unreal Engine and developed by Interplay's 14 Degrees East division. It was in development for a several months in 2000, but didn't really have a concrete development team and never made it out of concept. [B][I]Gameplay[/I][/B] The game could be played in first and third person perspective. The player would control a 4-person team and would be able to switch the active character, all of which had various skills, at any moment. The team could consist of ordinary wastelanders, former Brotherhood of Steel members, super mutants, Native American shamans and even Mongol warriors. There were both single- and multiplayer modes. __________________________________________________ __________________ [B][I]Websites[/I][/B] [URL="http://fallout.bethsoft.com/index.html"]Official Fallout Website[/URL] [URL="http://www.nma-fallout.com"]No Mutants Allowed[/URL] [URL="http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Fallout_Wiki"]Fallout Wiki[/URL] [URL="http://www.fallout3nexus.com/"]Fallout 3 Nexus[/URL] [URL="http://fonline2238.net/forum/index.php"]FOnline 2238[/URL] [URL="http://www.duckandcover.cx/"]Duck and Cover[/URL] [URL="http://www.fallout-on-line.com/"]Fallout Online Official Website[/URL] [I]Do you have stuff you think should be in the OP? well then speak up![/I]
Fucking awesome series. Although I think in the OP you should state what genre the game is and how it is played. Because fallout 3 greatly differs from the first 2 minus the story elements and such.
Updated it a bit, added more info about the games, still got some stuff I want to add (mods, canceled games...and Fallout Brotherhood of Steel at some point).
Fallout 1 and 2 were awesome, 3... not so much.
1 and 2 were fun, but i liked 3 mostly because it felt more...There, i felt more in control of my character, i remember coming home from school just to get into the wasteland and suddenly its 4 in the morning. Fucking awesome series, has my vote for best series ever. [editline]04:07AM[/editline] [img]http://siliconsasquatch.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/thumbs-up.jpg[/img] Also, its the VAULT BOY, not the PIP BOY, Fallout Tactics fucked that up and gave the option to recruit the "Pip-Boy" as a party member. -snip you posted it-
Now, why did you post that? It's fucked up.
Brilliant series.... anyone know when the new one is out?
Now this is what i call a quality thread.

1 was awesome, but 2 was the best (in my opinion). Tactics was great fun if you did not buy it expecting a game like FO1 and 2, if you did you will most likely be disappointed. FO3 was the worst one (still good/great, but not a Fallout), Tactics was a spin-off (so it was expected to be different), FO3 wasn't, so FO3 has no excuses for not being a proper Fallout. FO3 without mods that is. The above is an opinion, if you think that FO3 is the best FO then good for you, I didn't say you can't like it. Let's hope New Vegas really will be inbetween (gameplay-wise) FO2 and FO3.
[QUOTE=UnidentifiedFlyingTard;20700731]Fallout Tactics has Multiplayer. also added Fallout:POS to the OP.[/QUOTE] I thought it did, but i wasnt sure :C [editline]05:05PM[/editline] [QUOTE=RayvenQ;20702375]It really doesn't, it's like the bastard child that nobody wants to admit whelphing of the fallout series[/QUOTE] I know I know, but there were alot of people who liked it, suprisingly.
Ah, so there's no option to select your background in Fallout: New Vegas? What a shame, I was looking forward to playing as a ex-Chinese operative turned ghoul.
Is New Vegas really a spinoff?
Needs more "Awesome mods for Fallout 3 on PC" Marts Mutant Mod - RC 5 ([url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3211[/url]) [quote] ::: Overview ::: -------------------- This mod is a port of MMM from Oblivion to Fallout 3. It focuses on adding a huge range of diversity to creatures and NPCs in the Fallout 3 world as well as adding new and unique creatures and NPCs to encounter. The mod is broken down into a core base and a range of optional modules. The key results the mod achieves are: * Every creature and NPC is unique with its own stats, size, confidence, health, damage and even skin (texture) * Creatures and NPCs suffer improved wounding effects such as visible bleedng and statistic penalties * Creatures and NPCs can loot the corpses of fallen enemies, afterwhich you can find this loot if you kill them * Creatures and NPCs have improved behavioural AI based on class -- in any given group some may be aggressive towards you, some may be ambivalent, and others may avoid you outright. * Configurable increased spawns allow you tailor how many creatures and NPCs spawn in the game at any given spawn point * Improved faction system to better reflect inter-faction relations and ensure the player isn't the center of the universe * New creatures and NPCs to add variety to the wasteland -- all hand-crafted with their own stats, abilities, loot, weapons, textures and in some cases scripted AI behaviour. Main features include: :: Stat scaling All creatures and NPCs have a sliding-scale random modified adjustment to their base values for STR, END, PER, INT, AGI, LUC, Speed and Health. The adjustments range -3 to 3, with the following percentages: 30% no change, 30% -1/+1, 30% -2/+2, 10% -3/+3. The exceptions are STR, END and Health values which are based on size (see next), as are loot drops for creatures (see below), where larger creatures are stronger, have more endurance, and more health. :: Size scaling Isn't it a little bit odd that all creatues and NPCs are identical in size? Indeed, so size scaling randomly adjusts size based off base value between a factor of +/- 20% for creatures, and +/- 12.5% for NPCs (though it's actually weighted -10% to +15%.). It's not quite a blanket rule -- Ghouls for example follow size scaling closer to NPCs, given they were formerely people. As above, size is more than just visual variety -- it impacts the strength, endurance, and health. Larger creatures hit harder, and last longer. :: Size based loot Larger creatures will drop more meat, smaller ones less (or none at all). This may be expanded in future to include other types of loot. :: Factions A new faction system through the optional Natural Selection plugin ensures you're not always the center of the universe -- creatures and NPCs have foes they might consider more dangerous than you, and act accordingly. Additionally a special No Attack faction protects Scavengers, their pets, and optionally traders (with the Tougher Traders) plugin from being attacked, without the need to mark them Essential (and thus prevent the player from killing them). It's also used for special creatures in the mod, such as the passive Wasteland Scorpion and Corpse Flies being largely ignored in favour of bigger threats. :: Behaviour AI Why is it that most creatures and NPCs seem to be hostile, despite the fact that in order to survive a creature or NPC still needs to pick its fights (otherwise, how did it last this long?) Changes to wildlife on a creature-by-creature basis reflect that not all MoleRats are suicidal, and even a Vicious Dog can have the sense to avoid a fight it's got no chance of winning. NPCs, as well, can have a greater sense of self-preservation but to a lesser degree than creatures and, as with size and stat scaling, the chances are randomised based off their base value -- so Raiders are more likely to turn tail and run than Outcast for example. :: Diverse Creature Skins Most creatures in Fallout 3 have only a single texture, making every creature a clone of the next. Diverse Creature Skins provides a range of texture variants for each and every creature, so when you encounter a pack of rabid, yet slightly cute, MoleRats they all look a little different. This is one of those features that sounds simple but makes a huge impact in-game. These are some of the creatues and the number of variants in the mod: * 3 Brahmin * 3 Radroach * 3 Deathclaw * 3 Deathclaw Baby * 3 Deathclaw Matriarch * 3 Giant Ant * 3 Floater * 3 Wanamingo * 3 Vicious Pup * 4 Vicious Dog * 4 Mirelurk * 4 Yao Guai * 4 BloatFly * 4 FireFly * 5 Molerat * 5 Molerat Young * 5 Centaur * 5 RadScorpion * 9 Geckos * 84 Feral Ghoul * 104 Supermutant :: Diverse NPCs Just like Diverse Creature Skins, the NPCs in the game also get some treatment. Mostly, and for the moment, this focuses on Raider diversity and includes 100 Raider variants all with new unique faces, hair, etc. Additionally, there are 12 variable tattoos styles which are mixed and matched across 28 different race variations. The result is a much wider scope of Raider appearance you will encouter in the game, and greatly fleshes them out as a faction in the Wasteland. :: New Creatures & NPCs What's an MMM without new creatures and NPCs? Just to start, the first release of MMM for Fallout 3 will have: * Supermutant Gargantuan -- the guy the Behemoth goes to when he runs home to mummy. You don't want to meet mummy. Really, seriously. What, you got a death wish? Ok... * Firelurk -- just when you thought the Mirelurks couldn't get any more dangerous, one of these brethren will show up. As the name suggests he's a Mirelurk, only he breathes fire... he also drops a unique loot: Firelurk Saliva. Hey, what do you think he's using for fuel? * Wasteland Scorpion -- first of many passive creatures. This is a small, loner creature (just like the real thing) which will avoid you if it can. It just wants to find a rock and live to see another day. Be kind, eh? Or not. * Wild Dog -- semi-passive wasteland scavenger. He's no friend to the Vicious Dogs, but he's not necessarily yours either. Push him into a corner and he'll fight, otherwise he'll probably leave you alone. * Night Ghouls -- You've heard reports of Ghouls roaming the wasteland at night, but you didn't believe them. You still won't... that is until you run into them first hand. They travel in packs, and see better in the dark than you too. Oh, for a bigger torch than the Pip-Boy... * Corpse Fly -- These little creatures have a chance to appear at a corpse after a number of hours. They are ignored by other creatures and NPCs and a non-hostile, though you can take pot-shots at them in VATS if you want to. They add a unique dynamic to the Fallout 3 world, where even the smallest creatures can be seen to scavenge... * Vicious Dog Pups -- small, hungry, and seeing you as a threat. They're weaker and do less damage of course, but they drop a unique soft fur that you can sell. They'll also try and follow their parents when they're around. * Young Mole Rats -- Mole Rats tend to keep their young safe in burrows so you won't see these often, but if you happen to catch them out in the open you'll find them fast but easy prey. Because they are rare, their teeth fetch a higher price than that of their parents. * Little Geckos -- Little Geckos are the smallest of the Geckos and generally passive, and as such are ignored by most wildlife. They are will fight back if attacked, but don't post a large threat. Their skin can can be collected and sold. * Golden Geckos -- Golden Geckos are mutated by feeding near radiated waste, and as a result are immune to radiation adn slightly larger in size, more likely to be aggressive, and can swipe with poisonous claws. Being more dangerous, their skin is more valuable to sell. * Fire Geckos -- Fire Geckos are the largest of this breed and extremely dangerous -- they attack on sight and can ignite flames on their foes on impact. Naturally, they are immune to fire as well. Their hide is the most valued of all, and can fetch a good price. * Deathclaw Matriach -- You think the Deathclaw is mean? Wait till you see his female partners -- bigger, stronger, faster and with the chance to send enemies flying with a knockback effect. If you know what's good for you, avoid her at all costs. * Deathclaw Young -- Although rare as they are often protected in lairs, Deathclaw Young can be found out in the open. Naturally they're aren't as strong as an adult, and don't drop the valuable Deathclaw Blood. For that reward, you need the tougher fight of a mature Deathclaw. * Floaters -- Just like their Fallout 2 counterparts, floaters are odd and creepy looking creatures that don't move fast but can hit for a punch. They spawn with their Supermutant masters and their meat is particuarly restorative. * Wanamingos -- Another classic creature, Wanamingos are fast and furious and will happily tear you a new hole. They can be found in the wasteland and, as in Fallout 2, the best defence against the is to cripple their legs causing them to flee. * Fireflies -- Fireflies are completely passive creatures that appear at night and disapppear by the morning. They can sometimes be seen far away flickering in the moonlight, and if you get close you'll see them in a rainbow of colors. * Ramblers -- The Feral Ghoul Rambler is a bigger, stronger, beefier and more dangerous Feral Ghoul. His claws are also toxic, and will poison you on contact. Dangerous as he is, he's called a Rambler for a reason and limps slowly along, lunging towards you -- don't let him get close! Between size scaling, stat scaling, behaviour and diverse skins every creature you meet is literally unique. See a group of Vicious Dogs? Each one looks different, has its own temperament, has its own size, moves at its own speed, has its own endurance and health, and its own strength and damage. Fighting in the wasteland will never be the same, every encounter is unique! :: Other features * Night Ghouls that appear only at night, and are faster and stronger than normal Feral Ghouls * Wild Dogs and Wasteland Scorpions may appear at wasteland spawn points, and are generally passive * 3% chance of a special Supermutant spawn with muties, which includes 8 variant Behemoths and the Supermutant Gargantuan * A new food -- Radscorp Meat -- added to Radscorps. Afterall, you can eat pretty much everything else. It heals well but has high rads * Slightly reduced chance of Robots and Radscorps for wasteland spawn points * Evergreen Mills Behemoth replaced with Gargantuan (great in tandem with Increased Spawns) * Robots aren't included in stats/size/confidence scaling -- afterall, they are machines, produced identically off the production line * Corpse Flies may appear at corpses after a certain amount of time. They can be VATS targeted and killed, if you feel like some sharpshooting * GMSTs adjusted to extend corpse lifetime, the number of corpses before cleanup, and the number of actors able to be in combat at one time. * Special effects like the Gargantuan's demolishing strike, Glowing Ones and Robots may explode with force on death, Fireflies casting colourful light at night, Skeletons decayed from corpses after a time and much more...[/quote] tl;dr adds new NPC's, AI behavior, and other stuff Fellout [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2672[/url] Tired of that stupid ass green tint that hovers around everything?

Have no fear, this motherfucker is here [quote] This is my attempt to change NPCS in Fallout 3. I have redesigned their facial structure to give them a more natural appearance, as well as to preserve their character as well. It removes some of the awkward skin tones, and facial structures of the Vanilla versions. Next, please download the "INSTRUCTIONS TO DOWNLOAD THIS MOD" manual and read it carefully. I carefully went through each and every question that was asked in forums and in private messages and placed a new manual which will be more helpful. If you want no hair mods, download the "Main Files" one. If you want Project Beauty HD, download the "Project Beauty HD" files. You'll then need to get the updates to get either of the latest versions. Again, please read the manual for clarification, as it is very helpful for you. Installation directions are on the manual. The manual is listed on the Files Section. These are the female and male NPCS changed so far: Alan Alejandra Torres Anthony Ling Arkansas Armitage Bill Seward Bill Seward Bill Wilson Billy Creel Bittercup Biwwy Bob Brianna Butcher Caleb Smith Charon Cherry Chief Gustavo CJ Clover Crazy Wolfgang Cromwell Cross Daniel Littlehorn Derek Pacion Diego Doctor Lesko Doctor Li Dominic Dukov Eclair Elder Lyons Eulogy Jones Evan King Fantasia Father Clifford Flash Freddie Gomez Gary Staley Hannibal Hamlin Harkness Ian West Irving Cheng Janice Joe Porter Joseph Jotun Justin Karl Kimba Knick Knack Knight Artemis Knight Durgas Lucky Hairth Lucy West Lucy West Machete Maggie Martha Wilson Megaton Settler (some lady who kept giving me random stuff) Michael Hawthorne Milicent in Tenpenny Mister Lopez Moira Mother Maya Mysterious Stranger Nathan Nova Paladin Bael Paladin Gunny Pappy Paul Cantelli Paul Hannon Penny Princess Pronto Red Reily Richter Robert Scribe Jameson Scribe Jameson Scribe Rothchild Shorty Shrapnel Sierra Silas Silver Simone Cameron Sister Squire Maxson Stacey Susan Lancaster Sydney Trinnie Vera Weatherly Walter Yearling Young Amata Zip All Talon Mercs have been redesigned to have a more realistic and gritty appearance.

TOTAL OF 456 NPCS HAVE BEEN REDESIGNED!!!!!!!! ========================================================== If you have suggestions to improve upon some of the character designs, please let me know and I can make changes in the next version. ===================================================================================== FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ================================================================ 1. Is this mod just a "Barbie-doll" or "celebrity" mod that makes everyone in the world look like super models? Answer: [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/images/6341-1-1248672337.JPG[/url] [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/images/6341-1-1245312013.JPG[/url] [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/images/6341-3-1245312014.JPG[/url] 2. This mod doesn't work with ____ mod. Check the Compatibility section on the "Updates". I work with some folks who help my mod to be compatible with others out there. 2. I"m getting pink eyes or I'm getting pink eyelashes! Purple eyes/purple tongue/purple eyelashes means you are missing textures. It is one of three reasons. a) You have a different copy of Fallout 3 (Steam Version) or you have a different copy of Windows. If you link the textures to the right folder it will work. Try making a duplicate folder (for testing purposes) at this EXACT folder location and copy the associated textures: Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data\Textures That way, GECK will link to it. b) You have another mod that is using eyelashes and that may be causing a conflict. Try temporarily running PB by itself and see what mod is causing the conflict. c) Archive Invalidated isn't working correctly. Sometimes unchecking it and then checking it will fix the problem. 3. Help! I don't see the folders listed here! I don't have a "Textures" folder. Or.. I don't have "headhuman" files. Or...I don't have a "Female" folder. If it's not there, you add it. Just right-click, and click "Add New folder" and title it as the way it should be labeled. Make sure that at the end the directory is: Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data\Textures\characters\female Whatever you do, do not delete the main textures.bsa files. 4. Help! I installed the hair textures and meshes exactly as you said, but it's STILL not showing up in my game? How come the hair isn't showing up on my ladies? ANSWER: [url]http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/9721/solutionj.jpg[/url] Oh, and another thing. You have to add your own hairstyles to the characters. I provided you with directions on how to do so. I did this because some people may want one style and another person might want another..so I thought it best to just teach you how to add it. :P 5. Ok, I've downloaded everything. I installed everything correctly, but I'm getting characters with white faces but black skin. Verify that you downloaded ArchiveInvalidationInvalidated. That should fix the problem. 6. Will this work with Dimonized textures? This will work with Dimonized body type. But it will not work with Dimonized faces. This mod will pretty much work with any body type. You name it. Malos, Type 3, Type V, etc. But it will not work with other face mods. For example, Josef Grey's makeup textures or Dimonized 7. I have some problems with hair meshes or hair textures and I've read your manual and checked everywhere. Help! ==> Most of the male hairs were not put into the game. I was initially going to place them in, but I decided to remove them as I felt they were not lore-friendly. The problem that you are having is due to the fact that the coding may still refer to the old male hairstyles. I removed them out and this is why they are not showing up. You can remedy the problem in one of two ways. The first way is to get the male hairstyles here. [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=1146[/url] This installs all 14 male hairstyles. The second way is to just use the default male hairstyles for Fallout 3. There is a detailed guide by SydneyB which explains how to add and resource each hairstyle to the correct source. Here is more detailed instructions on how you can add the male hairstyles and link it correctly. It's a bit tedious, but it will work. Credit to SydneyB for the directions: Install ======= 1. Extract the files of this mod to a temporary location (you can use 7zip: [url]http://www.7-zip.org[/url], to unzip them) and chek the folder structure. 2. Copy to (install folder)\Fallout 3\Data\: .- the meshes folder .- the textures folder If asked if you want to overwrite existing files say "Yes to all". 3. Open the GECK (you can download it from here: [url]http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/downloads/geck.html[/url]). 4. Select File -> Data from the top menu, and check Fallout3.esm and your current cosmetic mod (or only select Fallout3.esm if you are not using any cosmetic mod). Select your current cosmetic mod and press the button "Set as Active File". Then press the OK button and wait for the GECK to stop loading. 5. Add a new hair: * Select Character -> Hair from the top menu: a window will pop up with all the available hairs. * Right click on the list of hairs and select "New" from the pop up menu. Enter a unic name for your hair (for example, FallenHair1) and press OK. * On the right section of the window, enter a name for your hair (this will be the name displayed in the character facegen screens in game). Check the Flag "Playable". Check the flag "Can be female" or "Can be male" depending on if the hair is for female or male characters. Make sure the flag "Fixed color" is deselected. * Click on the Edit button of the Art file section and select the hair mesh file (for example Data\Meshes\Characters\Hair\FallenHair1.nif) * Click on the Edit button of the Texture file section and select the tecture file (for example Data\Textures\Characters\Hair\FallenHair1.dds) * Click OK 6. Assign the new hair to your race: * With the hairs window opened, select Character -> Race from the top menu. Another window will pop up showing all available races (move the window as needed if it covers the hairs window) * Select the race you want to modify (for example Caucasian) on the list. * Select the Face Data tab on the right. You'll see a list of Hair Styles available for the selected race. * Left click on the new hair you've just added in the hairs window and with the left mouse button pressed, drag it to the Hair Styles window of your race and then drop the hair there (stop pressing the mouse left button). The new hair has just been added to the list of available hairs for your race. * Click OK on the races window. * Click OK on the hais window. 7. Save your changes to the active .esp file. 8. Start Fallout 3 Launcher, click 'Data Files' and place a checkmark beside the .esp file 7. In what order do I load the mods? ■Project Beauty HD version.esm - After Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch.esm, as early as possible USE ONLY Project Beauty HD version.esm OR Project Beauty.esp NOT BOTH ■PB mika.esm - anywhere, use instead of original mika.esp ■Project Beauty.esp - As early as possible USE ONLY Project Beauty HD version.esm OR Project Beauty.esp NOT BOTH ■Original Moira Brown.esp - right after Project Beauty.esp ■Project Beauty- Broken Steel.esp - right after Project Beauty.esp ■Project Beauty- Point Lookout.esp - right after Project Beauty.esp ■PB FOOK2 - Main.esp - Right after FOOK2 - Main.esp ■PB FOOK2 [DIK].esp - Right after FOOK2 - [DIK] DLC Improvement Kit.esp ■PB MMM.esp - Right after Mart's Mutant Mod.esp only use with non-HD version ■PB MMM HD.esp - Right after Mart's Mutant Mod.esp only use with HD version ■Project Beauty- Point Lookout MMM.esp - right after Mart's Mutant Mod - DLC Point Lookout.esp[/quote] FOOK2 - [quote]The second installment of FOOK. This edition is designed to go beyond what FOOK had started. Including better weapons, armor, items, and an overall rework of the system from the ground up. FOOK2 and FOOK are different in that FOOK2 is a revamp and reproduction of everything that wasn't fixed in the original FOOK. The newer development was designed around better ergonomics between mods and compatibility to reduce bugs and overall conflict among some of the most popular pieces of work to date. What started off as nothing more than a compilation of previous mods and material turned into a completely new development. FOOK2 redesigns the wasteland in better flow with the fallout universe and tries to fill in the gaps that Bethesda left behind.[/quote] tl;dr it's alot like Oscuros Oblivion Overhaul except for Fallout 3 FWE (Alot like FOOK with some differences) [b]REQUIRED: if you are running FOOK as well you MUST use the FWEFOOK merger however FEW 5.0 is NOT supported at this time. The mod is still being updated daily so expect an update for that coming soon.[/b] [quote] Fallout 3 Wanderers Edition (FWE) is a major overhaul mod for Fallout 3 that changes underlying game mechanics and adds new features to the game. The aim of the mod is to improving the challenge, sense of immersion, depth of gameplay, and range of options compared the vanilla game. Generally, you'll find the wasteland to be a more dynamic but far less forgiving place. FWE's development is guided by two objectives. The first is to enhance the First-Person-Shooter (FPS) elements of the game (while still preserving non-FPS options). This includes making combat faster paced, exciting, and more player-skill based. The second objective is to enhance the role-playing elements of the game by emphasizing choices and consequences, balance, character development, immersion, and the range of viable options. Both these objectives aim to increase the replay value of Fallout 3. NEW IN FWE 5.0 In FWE 5.0 MANY of FWE's features from prior versions and new to 5.0 are now customizable or ON/OFF toggle-able.

It adds between 20 and 100 new songs to Three Dog's Playlist using a special version of PimpBot's excellent GNR Extender Mod. Also, thanks to PimpBot's meddling, on average you will hear 6 songs before Three Dog cuts in again. It also retains the original songs instead of replacing them. All the sound files are taken from public archives like the Internet Archive's 78RPM Digitization Project, so they should be considered public domain. I have tried my best to retain the original developers' aesthetic sensibilities--light on the funny stuff, lots of melancholy mixed with absurdly upbeat things. Most of the tracks are by artists already in the soundtrack (Bob Crosby, the Andrews Sisters, Danny Kaye, Cole Porter, etc.). Credit Where It's Due: This Mod uses PimpBot's GNR Extender mod to do its business. [url]http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2972[/url] Go vote his mod up. To Install, download the ESP and Ad File, then as many of the ten track packs as you'd like to have. Unzip the files to your Fallout Data directory, preserving the directory structure of the files. This should unpack everything to Data/sound/songs/radio/GNR.) When you Launch the game, check the GalaxyNewsRadio***[M].esp for the number of tracks you want, using either the Fallout Loader or the FOMM. Included with that file are five different .esp files. If you only one to add 20 new songs to your game, just download Track Packs 1 and 2 and use GalaxyNewsRadio[M]20.esp. If you want all 100, download Track Packs 1-10 and use GalaxyNewsRadio[M]100.esp. For 40, 60, or 80, use the appropriate number of Track Packs and the appropriate .esp. The mono.wavs and mono.mp3s are called by the game for more than just in game radios, so you really do need all three sets of 100 tracks. The tracks are all sampled at the game's native sample rate, which is fairly high given the quality of the originals, and which unfortunately means very large files to download, particularly the mono wavs. Here are the new additions to the playlist: Track Pack 1 1. "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow, and Me" by The Ink Spots 2. "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar" by Will Bradley 3. "Dear Hearts and Gentle People" by Bob Crosby and the Bobcats 4.

A: fose.silverlock.org, read what it says, find the right version for you Q: But this is a Fallout Series thread, where are the mods for Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 A: The fuck if I know Q: Are these mods really worth it? A: yes Q: Why? A: Because the main game is fun and all and the DLC is good but once that is all said and done there's really nothing else much to do except explore unexplored places which is ok but mods extend the game's life by a lot Q: You missed a mod that should be there! A: I only listed the mods that are the most used/popular. If you have another mod that you want placed here then go ahead and tell me. Q: I keep getting an Archive Corrupted/whatthefuckereverthaterror is error message! A: Go to FOMM and click on the Arche Invalidator, click yes. What this does is remove the archive check for the original FO3 textures/anims meaning you can now install and use custom textures/anims.
This is the Fallout [B]Series[/B] thread, not Fallout 3 Mod threads, you really want to pot that post, post it somewhere [url=http://www.facepunch.com/forumdisplay.php?f=141]Here[/url]
Needs a couple of "passable but still rather good mods for Fallout 2" to balance things out.

Series is godlike. Though you put the three Semi-Canon's in the middle :| Ach well. Can't wait for New Vegas :)
[QUOTE=imadaman;20718283]Series is godlike. Though you put the three Semi-Canon's in the middle :| Ach well. Can't wait for New Vegas :)[/QUOTE] What? what are semi-canons? why did you put an apostrophe in there? what are these semi-canons in the middle of?
[QUOTE=TheUnDeadGod;20700313]Brilliant series.... anyone know when the new one is out?[/QUOTE] Fall of the year so the last 2 months ish.
Let's hope New Vegas feels like a firs-person game and has good shooting mechanics unlike Fallout 3 (Fallout 3 sucked at that part).
fallout 3 shouldn't be in this thread
[QUOTE=Skwee;20718335]What? what are semi-canons? why did you put an apostrophe in there? what are these semi-canons in the middle of?[/QUOTE] BoS, Tactics and 3. And by semi-canon I mean "Parts of the game(s) can be used to richen the series but the story is not canon"
[QUOTE=L34rn;20718840]fallout 3 shouldn't be in this thread[/QUOTE] Yeah I know, but unlike Bethesda I'm not going to alienate people.
[QUOTE=L34rn;20718840]fallout 3 shouldn't be in this thread[/QUOTE] I liked it :saddowns: Can't ever hold a candle to fallout 2 though (IMO the only perfect game ever released)
