Version 9.0 has been uploaded! It can be found at the Downloads page of this mod. It's still a WIP, so expect some issues.

Post news Report RSS Fallout 3 Reborn V9.0 Release Date

That's right, the official V9 release date has been announced!

Posted by on

July 1st, 2011!

Get ready for another trek through the capital wasteland, Reborn V9 is coming out in less than 4 days. I just have a few tweaks and fixes to do, and the mod should be ready to go, then I have to package it up and upload it, and wait for mod DB to approve it.

Now that the important news has been released, time for a quick list of what Reborn V9 will require to run, and what I recommend for you to get the best Fallout 3 experience. Maybe you can use this guide to get Fallout 3 ready for the mod, to speed up the install process when the mod is released.

Fallout 3 Reborn V9.0 Requirements:

-Fallout 3, patched to the latest version (1.7).

-Fallout Script Extender (FOSE):

-Archive Invalidation Invalidated:

-All FIVE downloadable content expansion packs. Yes, that means Op. Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and Zeta.


A few things I'd recommend you do to prevent bugs is to remove all other large mods, to prevent issues. And also, START A NEW GAME. I cannot say this enough times, and yet I still always get people complaining that their old saves don't work with the mod, I can't help you with bugs if you didn't start a new game.

Final Notes:

Well, I hope you guys are excited to play V9, and that you'll have as much fun playing it as I do. Please note that the beta testing was done by three people, so if we missed a few bugs, then don't get too riled up, patching V9 will be much easier than previous versions, due to the merged DLC mods. Also, new content updates with weapons/items may become a semi-regular thing post-release. See you July 1st,
