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.

From talking with the mod owner you can still use your old saves as it does not change anything with them.

Although the last two Fallout proceeded at such a pace as Fallout 3, having the ability to get some really awesome armor at low levels and be able to own most things (I remember having a set of armor in Fallout 1 that had somewhere around 56 DR by level 2 and a fully auto gun. Since you could barter with anyone for anything). I think this pace (the one which you modded) will be MUCH better the type of game Fallout 3 is.

Might you be able to do something like I mentioned the first Fallout games had? Being able to barter with everyone for stuff. Like the Sheriff in Megaton would probably be bartering for his hat and rifle and random junk. Civilians usually had random junk and a few caps. This could be achieved by adding a Want to Barter? option to the chat and then.. well, whatever you would do. Probably go about making everyone something like a shop.

Thank you,
