• Essential Mods for Fallout 3

    These are necessary mods that don't really fit into the other three categories.

    Fallout 3 Re-Animated

    Makes necessary improvements to animations, which are lacking in Fallout 3 especially before the mod.

    HeadBob

    http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/18648

    A simple mod that adds headbob and new jumping animations.

    Weapon Retexture Project

    This mod retextures several guns, such as the 10mm pistol, scoped .44 magnum, hunting rifles, and sniper rifles.

    AK-47 Replacer

    This simple mod replaces the "Chinese Assault Rifle" with a more realistic AK. Sorry but I can't identify if in-fact it is the Chinese version of the AK-47, the Type-56.

    AKS-74U

    This mod adds a standalone AKS-74U to the game. It uses 5.56 x 45mm rounds though.

    Mauser C96 Replacer

    This is a replacement for the Chinese pistol. Wonderful attention to detail.

    Combat Shotgun Replacer

    HD reskin for the Combat Shotgun.

    Hi-Res Weapons v3

    Another weapon retexture mod. INSTALL THIS ONE AFTER ALL OTHER WEAPON RETEXTURES/REPLACERS, AND DO NOT OVERWRITE ANYTHING.

    Combat Armor Reskins

    Default Combat Armor is low res and ugly. I recommend a reskin. I personally use the one made by CaBal120 and EmeraldReign, the former having the best Power Armor reskins.

    Power Armor Reskins

    CaBaL120 has made some very nice, 4096 x 4096 reskins for T-45b Power Armor, Outcast Power Armor, and T-51b Power Armor. There are lower res versions too.

    Better Power Armor

    This mod gives all Power Armor outfits more realistic stats/properties.

      Very nice.

      No one should be playing Fallout 3 without these mods, seriously.
      *Except that Chinese Pistol replacer, no one uses the Chinese Pistol.

      Yeah for RP purposes.

      If I tried to make my chars as OP as possible like you do I would use 10mm pistol right off the bat.

      If I tried to make my characters as overpowered as possible, I'd use console commands to spawn items and go to the National Guard Depot right away, but I don't do any of that. Nope, I just use whatever is available that fits my characters, except now I use the Chinese pistol due to this awesome new replacer.

      It's one thing to criticize how someone plays a game (especially a game like Fallout 3 in which they want you to play however you want), but it's another when you're totally incorrect when doing so. I find it funny that you try to criticize others when you purposely miss out on one side of the game, by refusing to make any evil characters. So no Enad, you aren't a "better" gamer than others and you don't play the game "the right way". Shouldn't you be satisfying your XCOM or Dragon Age addiction instead of posting on the forum?

      What the fuk did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.


      You had this coming you punk!

      But srsly, I didn't say I was better lol I just said I use the .32 for RPing, as in I try to purposely limit my 'survivor' type chars to more civilian weapons, instead of a militarized 10mm pistol. I've done all the quests that are 'evil', the only thing I've missed out on is collecting ears from good people for that guy in the junkyard. I think that's acceptable though lol.
      What's up your ass today? haha

      Lie. As for the passage, I have remembered to copy and paste that this time. Thanks for share. Where did you find that anyway? And to stay on topic, if you have any mods to suggest, go ahead and do so. But no weirdo mods allowed.

      Thanks to Enad for discovering that Weapon Animation Replacer for New Vegas works for FO3, and is better than FO3 Re-Animated. So for those willing to take risks, get WAR. I've had no bugs, just that some iron sights don't line up properly.

      Yeah, it's pretty damn awesome. It gives Fallout 3 almost 'makeshift' iron sights without having to get the unstable Ironsight mod along with script extender blah blah.

      Updated with 4 new mods.

      Vurts Flora Overhaul, MG Neat Clutter, Hi-Res Weapons, and Point Lookout Reborn.

      They're all great mods and are compatible with all existing mods. Definitely give them a shot, especially flora overhaul!
