The Fallout Overhaul Kit (FOOK), is a customized compilation of user modifications, gameplay balancing changes, and original content designed for the PC game Fallout 3 by Bethesda Game Studios. 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.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like FallOut 3 Overhaul Kit . We love games like Fallout 3 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).

At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
