Report article RSS Feed Refresh Your Fallout 3 Experience - Rohan's Music Expansion

A collection of purpose-written tracks that essentially doubles the amount of music commonly heard in game.

Posted by Sclera on Sep 15th, 2010

Typically, when doing something we enjoy, we find our stress levels subside and life is generally more enjoyable. So when I realized a few days ago that the music expansion I had posted both here and on Nexus did not work correctly, after more than 60 people had downloaded it, I was a little more than annoyed. Now, however, I am certain that it works, as they are the files that work for me, and have been tested by someone else and confirmed.


So, here we are, here I am and here it is. 50+ hours worth of blood, sweat and tears went into this one and a half hours of music, deliberately composed to sit alongside Inon Zur's existing soundtrack in a way that is appropriate but non-distractingly unique.

The Battle tracks were an interesting learning experience. Making aggressive, suspenseful music (in a way that isn't metal [being 17 was fun]) was almost completely new to me, but I feel like I succeeded greatly.

I had the most fun with the Public tracks, I think. There's something unmatchably satisfying about creating music in that spacey, pseudo-western style established by Zur. R_Public_02 is perhaps too melodic for the game's atmosphere... but perhaps not. Besides, I've gotta have a bit of fun.

The music consists of 6 folders: Base, Battle [+Finale], Dungeon, Explore, Public and Special. The special folder contains a new menu theme under a different name, which can be renamed to MainTitle.mp3 if you wish to replace the original theme (don't forget to back it up). All tracks are named differently than the original soundtrack, so there is no need to worry about backing up anything. In addition to the music, I also made new death and level-up sounds.

Shutting up now. Have fun, and keep on wastelanding (cheesy conclusions awesome)

I know a mod almost just like this, it's called "GNR -- More Where That Came From" and is the same style as the rest of the game, you wont just hear the same over and over again now.

I'm saying this to the people who found this awesome and want to expand more
(I found it on the fallout 3 nexus)

Indeed, that is a great mod. I should stress that that mod adds tracks only to the radio, while mine adds only to the regular game music.

Unfortunately, my laptop can't run F3. Would you UL the music on grooveshark or youtube? I'd rather not wait god knows how long until I get a new PC to listen to it.

You can play the tracks in a media player.
