Better game pacing is reached by reducing XP rewards for combat, lockpicking and hacking, thus focusing the big XP gains on doing quests. I felt that fallout3, especially on the high difficulty settings, punishes you for exploring by upping your level way too fast. consequently you could only see about 1/10th of the game before hitting the level cap and having only top-of-the-line enemies and gameplay that stops developping. Now this takes a lot longer, and you get to explore more and be introduced to better items and enemies at a better pace that matches the size of the game.

Version 1.0. For best results start a new game, but it's completely save-game compatible.

A Fallout 3 expansion I think would be more useful for me...

XP reducers are for people who play Fallout 14 hours a day, why don't you guys just make a level increaser mod?

That would involve changing the coding, and fiddling around with some other stuff.

Plus, whats the point in doing that? The enemies would still max out, they'd still have the same equipment as at level 20, if you got to level 50 (for example)

This, makes far more sense.

Plus, it doesn't make any difference on how often you play it - you'll still reach the same areas, but within a different time frame. Hell, i'm level 7 within about.. 3-4 hours of gameplay. Something ain't right there. Sadly, thats on the 360, meaning i can't get hold of this... =(

You got a good point with the equipment of enemies, maybe that can be changed in the upcoming fallout 3 editor.

That ruins the realistic feel of the game however. I would rather it have realistic than see all my enemies having pistols and then suddenly switching to rifles...that's just confusing.
