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.

Names of all vanilla FO3 and FOOK weapons and items standardized for consistency

Destructible bottles, and other small clutter objects

Brand new mechanics to breach locks with explosives

Increased Realism Features

- Power Armor takes more damage from battle, possibly being destroyed and unrepairable

- Heavy Weapons can always be wielded, but require Power Armor to be truly effective

Demo of brand new Scrapping & Salvage system

- When Power Armor is destroyed, it can be scrapped at a Workbench or with the new Field Salvage Kit

Dozens of new visual effects for energy beams, projectiles, impacts, explosions, and critical deaths

Greatly improved blood-spatter effects

Brand new, custom Nightvision effects that look authentic and really work!


Options & Settings

Easy to access, single menu for various options

Many features can be modified or disabled at any time in game, without the need for additional plugins

User configured options include:

- Nightvision: HUD NV Charge meter, audible warning, and activation options

- Heavy Weapon Handicaps: Turn the particular features of HWH on or off

- Explosive Breach: Adjust several settings for this feature, or disable it completely if you prefer

- Screen Blood: 5 levels of screen blood intensity, including "Off"

- PipBoy Glove: Default behavior of the Player Character always wearing
the PipBoy Glove, or allow the use of the equipped outfit's handwear

- Single option to restore all FOOK2 default settings

- Single option to remove FOOK2-added perks if uninstalling FOOK2 from
an existing game (not required with latest version of Fallout 3 -
option only accessible from console)


Mod Support

Compatibility Patches for the two popular modifications Mart's Mutant
Mod and Weapon Mod Kits have been released by their respective authors
Martigen and Antistar, and continued updates and development continue
with support of the FOOK Team.

Changes have been made to the structures and methods used in FOOK2 to
allow for greater compatibility with other mods in general. These
methods continue to be developed and expanded for even greater
friendliness with other mods.

Crashed mine to before I noticed that I had loaded the FOOK2 - Mothership Zeta.esp. I don't have the Mothership Zeta DLC so I belive that trying to load this ESP without it crashed my game. Check if disabling the FOOK2 - Mothership Zeta.esp works ;)

Lots of things may crash your game but the most common I can think are:

The DLCs have ESP files, watch out for them;
Using a old save game wont work, start a new game;
Are you using other overhaul mods? they might conflict;
Messing up the load list order in the launcher or mod manager might crash your game as well;

Hope I was of any help, otherwise I recommend Re-Downloading and of course, reading the README file.

Good Luck

What do you mean that it "chrashed my game ever ........................" You need to elaborate about the crash. Are you using other mods? You may need to:
1. Fix your load order. FO3 Mod Sorter should help. Well, probably. (http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3596)
2. Use this utility: FO3Edit (http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=637) Rename the FO3Edit.exe into FO3MasterUpdate.exe and run it.
Hope that fixed the crash. Good luck.

I'm having a problem with the textures of some (most I guess) new models. These keep turning into bright white. Does anyone know how to fix that?

Get 'Archive Invalidation Invalidated(AII)' - Might be a litle complex

Or

Get 'Fallout Mod Manager(FOMM)' - Very easy to use, just install, then launch it and click at "apply invalidation" (or something like it). then you are done.

It IS RECOMENDED that you also get 'F.O.S.E.'

GOOGLE FOR THE FILES...

I agree that it is an excellent mod, but sometimes I just feel overwhelmed by how many weapons there are, and sometimes underwhelmed by their meshes and textures, some of them aren't the best to say the least. Maybe you could just improve the some of the weapons to make them up to par with the rest of the mod. Other than that though excellent work, the longivity of the game increased for me 10 fold.

My game just starts to fire up and abruptly crashes when the intro-menu starts, erm, how do I fix this?

(I figured you gents would have an idea on how to fix the load-order.)

(I've posted this on the TES Nexus forums, but awaiting reply, I'm needing to get input here.)

I think it could be related to the fact that you have loaded Broken Steel.esm after Point Lookout.esm but have the FOOK versions in the order of BS and PL. Also the FOIP mods (I think you have them) should be loaded after their respective mods. My games works and I also have the smaller esps loaded before the large mods (MMM and WMK) but after FOOK2. So my equivalent of your mods would be this.

Of course there is no guarantee that this will work but try it. Also use FO3Edit to make a merged patch, WMK will NOT work otherwise.

Instructions (from their site):
1. Set up your mods and your load order in FOMM, then close FOMM

2. Download FO3edit if you haven't done so already.

3. Extract the two files from the archive into your Fallout 3 folder (where the Fallout3.exe is also located)

4. Start the FO3Edit.exe, you will see a list appear with all your mods in it, just click ok.

5. It will take a little while until all your mods are loaded. If all mods load succesfully, you will see at the bottom of the message tab "Background Loader: finished". If you instead get an error message, then you are missing a master!

6. Assuming everything loaded correctly, all you need to do is right click anywhere on the left panel and select 'Create Merged Patch' from the context menu.

7. A window appears asking for a filename. Enter anything you like, for example "My Merged Patch". Hit OK. At the bottom of all your mods you should see a new bold mod named 'My Merged Patch.esp'

8. Now close FO3Edit and you will be asked to 'Save changed files:'. Simply hit OK.

9. Now open Fallout Mod Manager and look for your 'My Merged Patch.esp'. Make sure it's activated and loaded at the very bottom of your load order

IMPORTANT: Every time you add or remove a mod, you should delete your old merged patch and create a new one, following the steps above!
