Version 9.0 of Fallout 3 Reborn. The successor to V8.0, and likely the last version in the Fallout 3 series.

Well, it's finally here. A lot of sweat blood and tears, figuratively, anyhow. Enjoy it, everyone. What's changed since V8 is below:

NOTE: An asterisk indicates a feature that can be controlled from the player house terminal.

-----------------------KEY FEATURES-----------------------

-Re-worked most of the weapons to support RH_ironsights. RH-Ironsights is now REQUIRED for the mod to work properly.

-Re-worked the needs system to be far more stable, realistic, and stat based. You also need to use food/meds one at a time, and you cannot use weapons while using them.

-Limited HUD assistance, no more rad counter, sneak menu, HP, AP, air menu, or crosshair HUD (unless you're aiming in 3rd person).

-VATS has been disabled, no more easy way out of combat.

-Level max has been raised to 100, it now takes less XP to level up. You get always 5 skill points per level up, plus 1 if you have the Educated perk.

-Greatly reduced the amount of ammo and chem loot you can find on enemies and in containers and around the wastes.

-Added in a sprint system that allows you to sprint when you hold Shift.

*Put in an option in the player house terminal that allows you to change the amount of enemies that populate the wasteland, from 1 to 10 times.

-Modified main menu and loading screens.

-DLC's merged with the game, you now need them to play it, but they are more stable and support Reborn better.

*Added in "Realism Points", a new system that takes account of how realistic your game is, and awards an XP multiplier from 1.25-2.0X.

*Added in the option to disable fast travel.

-Added in travel terminals at six major settlements, these allow you to travel quickly and safely around, but at a cost.

-Removed the [EMPTY] indicator on your HUD, you have to figure that out yourself now.

-Reworked the addiction system to be stable and glitch free. Doctors actually remove addictions now, certain features are fixed, and some messages have been tweaked.

-Changed automatic weapons chambered in 5.56 and 7.62, and some SMGs, to deal about 30-40% less damage.

-Increased melee weapon damage greatly.

-----------------------TWEAKS AND MINOR FEATURES-----------------------

-Made fists more useful, scoring a critical will knock down an opponent. base damage multiplied by 10, level up damage increase multiplied by 5

-Blunt two handed melee weapons now deal half the damage, and will knock a human down on a critical strike.

-Re-worked the night-vision goggles to have a (crappy) 3D model, more options, and greater availability, they also consume fission batteries.

-Toned down the auto-aim, this isn't a console game.

-Removed the royal wasteland bank.

-Increased some radiation sources by 10 times more rads/sec. It's recommended you either avoid these areas or use the improved rad suits to survive the radiation.

-Followers now level up independently of you.

-Increased Mirelurk damage values.

-removed SCAR-L

-Tweaked Scrounger and Fortune Finder perks to be more balanced.

-Raised the level and skill requirements for most perks (to fit with the 100 level cap).

-Added the Benelli M4 shotgun.

-Fixed the alien ship crash random event to NOT send the ammo flying everywhere, and to include more ammo.

-Made it far easier to get addicted with the new addiction system. Before it was almost impossible.

-Vendors carry far, far more ammo.

-The Mesmetron now has a 90% mez chance and a 10% frenzy chance, it used to be 20% mez and 80% frenzy.

-The Nuka Grenade is now made with Detergent instead of Abraxo Cleaner, since the previous item has no use, and Abraxo is now so useful and rare.

-The Stun Grenade now paralyses enemies for 15 seconds instead of 5.

You don't have any of the DLC? Really? I don't know anyone who still plays the game and hasn't bought at least a few of them.

V9 isn't all that different from V8, though. So you're not going to see a HUGE change gameplay wise, except for a few large features, V9 is a lot of tweaks and bug fixes.

i have 2, pitt and broken steel. after hearing everything else but Point Lookout sux, i didnt' bother. I tried er...downloading them but it wont work, even when i unclick them, just can't get v9 to even start without an error. It's not FO3 because when i undo f03 i can run it just fine.

Operation Anchorage is pretty ****** (unmodded), but modded, it's better than the actual game, in some ways. I also found both PL and Zeta to be quite ingenious and interesting, even if Zeta is kind of random, it still had some parts that were very cool. Especially the space-walk and mother-ship battle parts.

You could try running Reborn without all the DLC's... but there is a potential for bad side-effects.

Well there are a few reasons why people dont want DLC on their game. Its a well known fact that fallout 3 is becomes super unstable under the weight. Well, after testing on the nexus forums people pretty much figured out the reason the GOTY edition is almost unplayable is because both Point Lookout and Mothership zeta are broken. Try playing GOTY on the 360 or PS3, and i highly doubt you will get 10 minutes in without a crash.

I played 10 minutes on my friends xbox of vanilla FO3 a few years ago... It red ringed. Thing is my mod is for PC, and on PC, I swear Fallout was less stable back in the day of no DLC, with the patches (both official and non), it's gotten a lot better.

Hey! I've been following the progress of the v9.0 and I finally got to test it out! So far it has been very enjoyable (just like the earlier reborn versions) but there are still some minor things you could look into. I'd really like more customization options in the player home terminal (like the ability to remove those [MEDS], [FOOD] and other *descriptions* from your aid items since it's pretty obvious that squirrel on a stick is food and nuka cola is a drink!) Other thing I noticed was that even thought the new ironsights are pure awesomeness, some weapons' sights aren't quite matched with where the bullet goes, leading to that you have to aim more up or down than what the sights tell you. I'll tell you if anything else shows up and I really believe you can make this your crown achievement after couple fixes!

The brackets are a new organizational idea by another Abyssal games studio member. The idea is to organize items via their type, rather than alphabetically. All chems in one area, all meds in another, etc. It's a test to see if the idea is worth expanding to other items, such as weapons: [SNIPER], [SMG], etc.

Hi, I'm glad you enjoy the mod. I don't speak any language (fluently), other than English. However, I would be willing to try and make a Italian version of the mod, if you would help me translate English to Italian. I'm not sure what you'd change, since an AK-47 is an AK-47, regardless of the language.

If it's a problem with Fallout 3 not letting you play mods with a different language setting, I'd try google. If it's just my new stuff brought in by the mod, it's understandable.

Well,for example,"Brahmin steak" in italian version is called "Carne di Bramino",or if you want to talk with someone in italian version shows "E) Parla" in english version "E) Talk".And most of the dialogues are in english.If you can tell me what files in the mod contain the language i'll try to change them with the italian ones.
Or,if that is not possible,help you to translate the mod.

Slayer_2 Jul 12 2011, 7:10pm replied:

The item names are all included in the main mod file, what I find strange is that dialogue is affected, since I didn't touch any of that. How exactly do you choose to play with a different language? I'm gonna try to put my game in Spanish mode and see what happens.

Now,i unistalled and reinstalled all because before i used some other mods,now dialogues are in italian,voice too,but the items and other things(weaps are ok,'cause that are their names)are in english,if you want we can talk somewhere you want(steam,msn,skype) and then tell me how to modify the language file.After i'll give to you modified file and you can put it here for italians downloaders.:D
Tell me what you think.

Modifying the mod is easy, just open it up in the GECK and change the item names as you wish. I you're new to the GECK, I know some tutorials that might help, but they're in English...
