This mod is a complete overhaul of FOT. Aimed at revising the single player camp. of FOT, to make the game more non-linear and to give the player more choice. This mod is a weapons bonanza, as all of the weapons (one version) from Fallout, and Fallout: 2 will be added. Not including all of the new firearms that the team has already added into the game. The original missions are being modded to allow the player a few different ways to finish the a mission. Every item/weapon/armor is being re-balanced to make each one distinct. Even the sounds are left unchanged as each weapon, will have a distinct set of sounds instead of them all using the same default sounds. The special encounters are being overhauled to make then more useful (particularly the ones without a point). Commodities will reflect in value i.e. a military ration pack will be worth a nice chunk of change. Atmosphere is the key and that is what this mod strives for.

Posted by on

First up, three new weapon variants of the standard M4A1 the Barrett Rec7 (6.8 SPC), the .50 Beowulf CQC Rifle, and the 6.5 Grendel DMR.

Barrett Rec 7.50 Beowulf CQC Rifle

6.5mm Grendel DMR

The Barrett Rec7 will have at least one upgraded form, but will only be found as a complete weapon. However, the standard M4A1 can be upgraded into the Beowulf CQC Rifle or the Grendel DMR nether of which have upgraded forms. The parts required to upgrade the M4A1 into these weapons can be seen in the following images.

The ammo sprites for these variants were created by PyrO17 and as usual they are excellent.

Last up, a video demo of the Destroyable Doors.

The doors will only be destroyed by Explosive type damage i.e. Frag Grenades...etc and will provide an alternate way for players to access locked areas without a key. The door will be incorporated into the mod as much as possible in order to give the player multiple choices in resolving missions. The sprites for the doors were done be requiem_for_a_starfury.

Looks good. A great improovment, but there should be a bunch of indestructible doors on the misions, right?

I'm not sure how he will do it but i think ALL doors will be destroyable but the biggers with more explosives. But he will tell it when he comes online ;)

Well, the way the doors are coded is that any explosive type weapon can destroy them, that is an unchangeable fact...at least for now. The positive thing is that you can't tell the difference between the DD's and the standard doors. Not every door will be destroyable in the missions some will force a player to pick/hack/unlock. For example the huge raider gate isn't destroyable, same with the gates in Macomb.
