This mod from Quarn corrects many bugs found in the game that Bethesda hasn't fixed.
The Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch is an extensive mod fixing various bugs through out the Fallout 3 world!
How do I report a bug?
All bugs should be reported on the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch bug tracker here: Uf3p.gamedata.us. Registration isn't required and highly recommended you use it to report bugs as it will help me greatly in keeping track of everything but of course if you'd prefer you can still post/email me any bug reports. When reporting object placement bugs or pretty much anything simply open your console, click the object with the problem or one near it and write down the formID, only report it if the first 2 numbers are 00 (Fallout.esm) or 01 (Anchorage.esm) otherwise it means a mod added that object and it isn't something I can fix.
The Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch has been created for Fallout 3 v1.1 (english) and should not be used with any other Fallout 3 versions.
ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated! will not be deactivated\removed upon uninstalling of the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch, if you want it gone then run the program and deactivate before uninstalling.
If you have already been afflicted with the Charon and Ahzrukhal "stuck" bug then it will be reset so you can talk to Charon and initial the event again.
The Mouse Menu Acceleration Fix will not be removed upon uninstalling the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch, if you want it gone then use the shortcut created in your start menu to remove it before uninstalling.
FAQ (Fallout 3)
Question: Help! My game crashes! What do I do? Can you fix it?
Answer: The majority of crashes that occure are because of hardware/software/vista related issues and those I cannot fix, you have to! Also following "tweak" guides isn't such a good idea... sometimes they contain untest information or unknown side effects by applying "hidden" settings and pushing the game below or beyond the limits Besthesda gives us in-game/in the Fallout 3 Launcher can cause random/strange things to happen.
Q: Can you fix the VATS problems?
A: No as it is a "core" bug, now stop asking.
Q: Fallout 3 is acting strange, whats wrong?
A: If you've got Windows Vista and your Fallout 3 is installed to your program files folder expect problems, either install it somewhere else or turn off UAC.
