This is the installation executable for the Fallout2: Survivor mod packed in a ZIP archive. You have to install Fallout2 and apply Fallout2 1.02 patch...
It's a weapons/npc/items/critters/maps/scripts/dialogues/fixes/car mod. All in one.
The main idea is: you can go through the whole game using only one class of weapons. If you want to use energy weapons only, now you can. If you want to go through the game with a melee character, just go ahead! The weapons and their parameters are changed, and you'll find more powerful weapons of every class as you go further and further through the game. The game is NOT so well balanced (it was hard to make it perfect), so you might find big guns very powerful, but don't forget they need many action points to be used. Melee weapons are not so strong, but they require less action points etc... There are some moments during the game, where scripts give you weapon/equipment/items etc. depending on your skills. Some shopkeepers will sell you nice equipment if you pass weapon class skill check (e.g. if you have 125% or more of energy weapons skill, a shopkeeper will sell you a big-bad-mo-fo energy weapon). The conclusion: choose your favourite weapon class and boost it through the game. That's the main idea of this mod. Other things in this mod (as bug fixes, dialogue changes etc.) you might find useful, too.
-28 new weapons, 4 new ammo types
-Davin levels-up now
-Many items positions (approxim. 70% of them) are changed
-Shopkeepers won't trade with you if you don't pass level-check
-No more stealing from the shopkeepers
-San Francisco, NCR (Westin ranch, Carlson estate) and Broken Hills areas contain more items now
-81 scripts changed or corrected
-26 dialogues changed (from slightly to drastic), 8 game text files changed
-New car, modeled, textured, FRM-ed and ready. It looks like the car that Mad Max used to drive
-bunch of bug/glitch/exploit fixes
Many other things, I can't write it all here, just go to the homepage (homepage address updated, but the page itself is still a bit messy) and read it yourself...
