Description

EDIT: Please note that this is the BETA version of Fallout 3 Reborn, expect some issues to be present. You can post said issues on the comments page of the mod. Fallout 3 Reborn V8 was going to be the "Hardcore" edition of V7, but it grew to be quite more than that as I developed it. V8 is built with the foundation of V7, but a lot has changed. Many bugs have been fixed, some features have been removed, and a slew of new stuff has been added. One of the main features is the removal of the "fake" Fallout 3 vanilla weapons and armors, and their replacers, real-life weapons and body armors. Along with these changes, all the new weapons deal even more damage, and the wasteland critters are far more deadly, so Deathclaws are an actual threat now. The Introduction and Features sections from the readme are posted below.

i think you spelled something wrong...

(If you were previously playing V7, just rename your "fallout3_reborn_v7.esp"
folder to "fallout3_reborn_v7.esp", and you're good to go.)

"fallout3_reborn_v7.esp" To
"fallout3_reborn_v7.esp"

Not a Difference?

Also, is this password Protected

Yeah man, go ahead, as long as the files remain untouched, you're welcome to spread it around as you like. I'm not quite sure what you mean by the graphics overhaul, as such a feature was never a part of my mod.

i believe he was referring to the 'upgraded look' of the armors and weapons included...at least thats what it sounds like, they are better than the vanilla stuff its true.

Oh, well, those aren't my models, I'm using them with the permission of other modders skilled in texturing and modeling. And pretty much anything is better than the default models, which look like crap, in my opinion :P

i found a bug. (i think) first of all, almost anyone dies at the radroach attack in the vault.

second, i took a morphine, and a blood pack, and after that i could not eqyuip my bb gun anymore. i also did not have a body analyser in the vault.
Also, i love this mod. Keep up the great work!

Both fatigued an well rested NEVER disappear. I even tried putting needs off, but it did not help. I have installed the Broken Steel DLC and the world looks like you have already completed it. (Plants grow everywhere.) I am sorry, but this mod is just a bit too buggy for me.

Hello yannickgd,

First off, this is a BETA, nobody promised that it would be bug-free, hell I warned people that it is full of bugs.

Second, the green grass is NOT a glitch, I added it in to add more realism to the game. After 200 years, there would be something growing, however, I didn't take the route I did in V6, where I put green trees in and removed most of the rads.

Third, you start with player needs off, that's why you don't get an analyzer until you leave the Vault, and go to your player house to turn the needs on/off.

However, the fatigued and well rested DO sound like glitches, same with the BB gun, however this stuff has never happened to me. What version of the game are you running (Steam or standard), and do you have other mods installed? Lastly, is your game updated with the latest patch?

Remember that this is a BETA, and it has issues, if you can't deal with that, then wait till the finished version is release, don't judge a mod by it's beta.

Finally, I would ask that you post any issues in the forum from now on, if you continue to use this mod.

Strange. There is a disguise system in the mod, but it's only supposed to affect Talon and Raider armors. Try finding some Talon armor and put it on, then take it off. That might do the trick.

Fatigue from lack of sleep wont go away, and neither will "Well Rested", etc.

Brilliant mod, made an otherwise garbage game into one of my top games. I got killed by a gary ffs, a gary!

Hope you fix these game breaker bugs soon so I can carry on playing. But otherwise it seems to be working rather well.

Thanks for a great mod.

Hope you'll work on new Vegas once it comes out. I'm sure it needs some work, although it seems to be following what you have done with this mod. Tweking the combat wil most likely still be left to the modders.

I'm gonna test this out, because I'm 99% certain that the effects fade when I'm playing.

Thanks for the compliments, and yeah, you can be killed by almost anything, even Radroaches pose a threat to you.

If the bug really bothers you, simply disable player needs, it seems like a simple solution to me. If it really is such a "game breaker", then giving up the needs feature should be worth it.

And if NV releases modding tools, nothing will keep me from modding it, even though it looks like a huge step up from Fallout 3 in terms of realism.

You can run the mod with the DLC enabled, but there will be inconsistencies, and the DLC won't be modded. DLC mods will be released at a later date, however.

You can also find a terminal in the Tenpenny player house. You should probably play the mod a bit more before you start giving out suggestions :P

I know the advice you gave to the last guy was to play a bit before asking stupid, easy-to-answer question that could be found by reading the info of the mod (uh) but I have a major question. Where are the ATM machines? You know, for the bank.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

They can be found at each major settlement. The Megaton one is down by the brass lantern (near the bomb), and the Rivet city one is in the marketplace. There are 7 in total around the wasteland.

Thanks for the answer, I didn't bother to check there, as I thought of Craterside Supply or The saloon. I have only discovered Megaton this early in the game, as I had to delete some saves and didn't want corruption in my old saves after I deleted some major, not-as-good mods for this great one.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

No problem man, just look around any major settlement, and you should find an ATM.

Thanks for the compliment, I quite enjoy my mod, as well, but V8 is only beta right now, in a while it will be even better. However, to avoid issues, the best thing to do is to start a new game, otherwise you run the risk of inconsistencies or crashes.

As sdude said there is no info where u can find this terminals. No offense.

I would have another suggestion ;)
1. I think Sniper Rifles should get an accuracy bonus when theyre scoped.
It is a bit strange that u can Snipe better with a Pistol than with a Rifle.

2. I saw another Mod whitch allowed u to Modify ur weapons on workbrenches. Adding Scope, Suppresor, Laser Sights or High cap Mags.
I dont know if u can do that in ur Mod to.

3. I think the Selfrepair System was cut to extremly. If i repair i Rifle using Parts of another shoulb be realistic if that works fine. I think reducing the efficiency by 1/4 could be enough (just because Repairing at a Traders is really expensive..)

4.U mayby could write a Tutorial what exactly u changed in the Mod.
For example the thing with the Terminal in the House. What u changed at the Perks. A Weapon list with possible addons. And all these little things :) Than nobody would have to ask u all the time what about this whats that and so on ;)

Just suggestions .. what do u think about that?
And yes i know its a Beta but that could be for the finished version... ;)

Well, there is something called looking for things yourself. This mod affects over 50,000 references, and you expect me to not only document it all, but to provide directions to every new item in the wasteland?

Sniper rifles already have perfect accuracy, unless they're suppressed, in which case, they have a VERY slight decrease in accuracy. An increase of accuracy on something with 100% accuracy seems incredibly pointless. If you want to negate the effect of the scope sway, increase your Big Guns skill.

I find that modifying your weapons in such a way is unnecessary, as you can simply find these weapons in the wasteland, or you can buy them from vendors.

This is something I did on purpose, to force you to pay for repairs, it's part of my larger plan to stop the player from becoming a millionaire by level 20. I also jacked up the prices on almost everything, and cut the amount of loot you find.

I could, or you could. Or someone else could. Look here: Moddb.com

This tutorial is Wikipedia style, anyone can edit it, and fill in what they wish. The idea was to get you guys doing some of the work, so you can get what you want. It was created back during V5, and hasn't been touched since. I don't want to waste what little gaming time I have writing about all I've worked on, isn't it smarter that I spend my time actually modding (finishing V8, perhaps?), nevermind the other tutorials I'm trying to do about how to mod with the GECK. Start work on the tutorial, if you wish. Also, as Catman said, I do have a readme with the mod, it's not named such because I want people to avoid reading it.

The don't read me idea work great, I have been trick by my curiosity many times.

One thing that didn't come up in the readme and player house terminal. How to get a loan from the Royal Wasteland Bank. It mentions it several times, yet I can only withdrawal or deposit. Is this an upcoming feature? Also, I only noticed one bug. The flamer has no sound anymore. If this was intentional, ok, but I remember there being a flamer file in the sound file.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I also just wanted to say that, even as this version is a beta version still, this is the only major mod that still keeps me interested in the storyline and side quests. In fact, this has enhanced my gameplay severely and I hope you keep it up.

Also another little side note. Let me tell you all a little story. Once upon a time, there was a hero trying to rescue Red and Shorty from Germantown and all its mutant horrors. He took out a few mutants with his silenced rifle, and decided to reload, to be on the safe side. To his dismay, the modder of the mod he was using screwed up his weapon reload sequence so badly, he killed himself. Fun, right? In many good mods, the owner cut them short by not giving a good reloading sequence, so you smash your gun in your face. Not in this mod.

I think you may have outdone even the maker of Fallout Wanderer's Edition.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Slayer_2 Author

Yeah, I think I might have to re-label the "readme" in the finished release.

I forgot to remove that little tidbit from the readme, loans are actually a canceled feature, as I thought it was:

a) unnecessary

b) hard to force the player to pay back his loans

And yeah, the flamer has no sound, for some reason. I have had this issue with every version of my mod since V1. It says that there is a sound, and it SHOULD be working, but I think there might be a code issue with the GECK and looping sounds, the Ripper suffers the same problem.

And thanks for the compliments, although, I know what you mean, I love Fallout 3, but I would have dropped it long ago without mods, mostly mine, but I've enjoyed some smaller ones as well. And don't worry, a swarm of fanboy haters couldn't stop me, my only obstacle is real life :P

A terribly sad story, indeed. Did the brave hero's weapon jam so badly that it was beyond recovery? :P

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the Fallout 3 reloading animations, especially with my mod, but they at least work.

I've never used FWE, but it looks like it was developed by several people in a team, so I doubt that my mod is superior :|

Reply Good karma+1 vote

sdude290

I said the whole story and that your mod was better because in FWE, the reloading sequence for some of the weapons was unbearable. There was one weapon so bad, when you reloaded, the gun would kind of come back at you and jam you in the face, while you sort of make a waving gesture. The textures of the weapons also sucked badly.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Well, the story is still pretty much the same :P

Escape the vault, find dad, work on project purity, etc.

The weapon models/textures aren't actually mine, I just got permission to use them from their authors, and the animations are the default ones, they're ok, but some guns (like the P90) look retarded when you reload them.

Reply Good karma+1 vote
