Well about time someone would make a STEP-like modding guide for one of the best CRPG's ever made
So, here are some suggestions:
- A World Of Pain for FO3 is really a must-have you should consider adding it asap to the guide. On the other hand, I guess it's gonna need testing since the possibility of conflicting with the rest quest/ interiors expansion mods is very high.
- Franklin Metro Raider Bug Fix v1.0 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/19759/? ] and Safe Regulator HQ v1.0 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/11853/? ] should be added to the FIXES section since they are not included in the Updated Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch and they are pretty useful and basic fixes.
- Here is a couple of mods that could be added as well since they are lore friendly and try to make the game more immersive and realistic:
NPC-Confessor Cromwell has a Break EV _ DV [ https://www.nexusmod...ut3/mods/4660/? ]
Sleep in Megatons Common House [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/18946/? ]
- And some enhancement/texture mods that could fit/combined with the already included ones in your guide:
Vandr HD Creatures [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/18500/? ]
Robot Revolution HD - Protectron [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/18902/? ]
Swampfolk Backwater Retexture [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/18894/? ]
Glowing Ghouls - FO3 V1.0 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/20321/? ]
Citadel Retextured 4096x4096 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/13000/? ]
Mothership Zeta DLC Retextured [ https://www.nexusmod...ut3/mods/8260/? ]
UHQ Terrain Overhaul [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/19799/? ]
Skill Books Hi-Res Retexture [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/19514/? ] (I prefer 6IX's retextures :) )
Improved Glass Bullet Impact [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/13120/? ]
Nuka-Cola Hi-Res Retexture [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/19276/? ]
Retex_Gore [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/16940/? ]
Retex_Gorycorpseparts [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/16927/? ]
Retex_Brahmincorpsetrap [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/16933/? ]
A Useful Metro Map - Texture Replacement [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/20005/? ]
HD Smoky Fire and Explosions for FO3 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/20053/? ]
Sounds From The Wasteland [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/17849/? ]
Fallout 3 - HD Audio Overhaul [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/13055/? ]
Home brewed sound pack v1.2 [ https://www.nexusmod...t3/mods/12209/? ]
By the way, Wasteland clothing Hires retexture [ https://www.nexusmod...as/mods/54478/? ] works fine in FO3.
For the end I left probably the best weather mod for FO3, Weather for ENB - URWLENB FO3 [ https://www.moddb.co...enb-urwlenb-fo3 ] but it has one tiny disadvantage; it needs an ENB preset in order for the sky textures to appear properly(thus the mod's name -weather for enb-). I said "tiny" though cause in 2014 I believe everyone has the capability of running an ENB preset along with FO3 plus there are many performance friendly presets out there already. In fact with this weather/lighting mod you can actually disable Megaton Lighting Overhaul and Realistic Interior Lighting as well. Or you can disable this mod's plugins and let the others. It's up to the user.
PS. Lol I think my post was way off-topic. But anyway here's something that has to do with installing one of the existing mods in your guide. If I remember correct, Crowded Cities mod had an issue with the NPCs added by that mod causing them having white bodies or completely different head/body colors. The issue could be solved if CrowdedCities_v2.esp had its file header record flags changed to an ESM through FO3Edit.
Yep I confirmed its this mod. Take a look at the first page of the comments section in Crowded Cities page.
