UPDATED Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch

What it does
This mod fixes errors and bugs in the FO3 + DLC esms. Cut content is reviewed/restored only if fixable and able to blend into the game perfectly.

  • Fallout3.esm
  • Anchorage.esm
  • ThePitt.esm
  • BrokenSteel.esm
  • PointLookout.esm
  • Zeta.esm

If missing dlc, the installer will offer an older version (1.3) with the critical Rivet City crash lacking in the original version of this mod.

  • Uninstall any error-fixing mods that are already included in this patch
  • Uninstall the original unofficial patch by Quazzy and any prior version of this mod if present
  • ** This is a complete replacement for the original unofficial patch, the two must not be used at the same time!
  • After downloading it, double click on the exe file. (If this fails, right click it and select "run as administrator".)
  • Tick it in your Mod Manager

This patch overwrites the same texture & mesh files as some other mods.
Simply activate this mod before activating other mods, so that all other mods "win".
If using a mod manager, you can quickly de-activate all mods, install/activate this, then re-activate all other mods.
If this instruction is followed, there are no known conflicts with other mods.

Load Order
  • Fallout3.esm
  • Anchorage.esm
  • ThePitt.esm
  • BrokenSteel.esm
  • PointLookout.esm
  • Zeta.esm
  • Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch.esm

Boss Auto Sort will arrange for you in this order.

  • To uninstall, simply run the uninstaller from your programs menu or in your control panel - uninstall a program

Cut Content Restored and Reasons
  • Restored the Ranger Battle Helmet's texture to green so it matches its green colored armor
  • Restored Moriarty's Strongbox key into his inventory. If you talk to Jericho in Megaton and give him money for booze, in return he'll tell you about the cabinet in which Moriarty keeps his caps, and the key that opens it. The only problem is Moriarty didn't have the key.
  • Restored when you receive the T-45d Power Armor from Sarah Lyons to receiving the Lyons Pride Power Armor instead. It didn't make sense with what sarah said when she gave you the T-45d Power Armor and you weren't able to receive the Lyons Pride Power Armor in the game. Not only is it disappointing to receive an ordinary T-45d Power Armor set, it made no sense to what Sarah Lyons said to you about becoming an honorary Lyons member. You can find the T-45d Power Armor set in many places before reaching that point. Reaching that far in the quest line should reward you with an unique Power Armor set and for what you're about to face (which is the fun enclave battle).
  • Restored when you receive Recon Armor from Sarah to receiving the Composite Recon Armor instead. You weren't able to receive the Composite Recon Armor in the game. The only reason why it's in here because in the similar scenario as the previous change, reaching that far in the quest line should reward you with an unique recon set and for what you're about to face (which is the fun enclave battle ). That armor set is hardly more powerful then the common one in any case.
  • Restored the area behind the Chop Shop in Underworld. An inaccessible door blocked your way to get behind there. I see no reason why you can't go back there. There's a locked safe and 2 named ferals that don't attack you.
  • Restored the Protectron's Gaze to The Mechanist and Ant's Sting to The Antagonizer. Protectron's Gaze is awarded after handing the AntAgonizer's armor to the Mechanist. Ant's Sting is awarded after handing the Mechanist's costume to The Antagonizer. Both weapons couldn't be obtained by killing them and they didn't use those weapons to defend themselves. I see no reason why these 2 characters shouldn't have their own weapons to begin with.
  • Restored Megaton Brass Lantern Customer's unique dialogue. They're supposed to be friendly and the only npc that's supposed to be rude is Andy in The Brass Lantern.
  • (v2.1) Restored Mister Burke fully into the game(Screens). There's dialogue Burke says either before, during, or after the Tenpenny Tower quest and the You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head quest. Burke's house was pointlessly sitting in Megaton never being used by him. Burke sat in a chair at Moriartys all day long and never gets up. He's disabled from the game for no reasons. Everything that was cut fits into the game perfectly which are the following:
  • - Burke will only disappear/be disabled from game if you charm him and not blow up megaton
    - You're able to initiate conversations with Burke at appropriate times including before and after quests
    - Burke is a resident of Megaton with a daily routine. Going to his house to sleep at night, sit in that chair at Moriartys during the day, etc
    - Burke's house isn't level locked and only unlocked with his house key
    - Burke's house key is back in his inventory
    - Burke has a daily routine at Tenpenny Tower. Hanging out in the balcony area during the day, sleeping in his own bed at night, etc

Mod Suggestions and Reasons

Future Version Changes (2.3)
  • Fixed Victoria Watts to not find the player outside of Rivet City during The Replicated Man quest. My 1st attempt at fixing it was close :) (Thanks to InAComaDial999 + RoyBatterian for the assist)
  • Fixed Lucy and Walter to not disappear from Megaton (thanks to InAComaDial999)
  • Fixed the changes to the Chinese Stealth Helmet so players can wear it separately from the armor, including with FWE
  • Fixed Goalie Ledoux, Centre Dobois and Winger Gervais health from being altered to over 10 times their vanilla values
  • Added Power Armor Pauldron Glitch Fix by trulypanda
  • Fixed some UV's with the house interiors in Tranquility Lane. It's the stairways that have the super stretched texture on the wall (Thanks to SuBNeRoCL)
  • Fixes for the Pitt which consists of some floating debris piles, and blinking in and out from engine bugs (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fixes for statics around the wasteland for rocks, bushes, seams, kit pieces, and all the bathroom wall gaps (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fix for Dr Li Teleporting when using the Taft Tunnel entrance after she uses the intercom (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fixed RL3 being aggressive after firing, including at raven rock (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fixed the fire extinguisher to stop reassembling itself after it's been destroyed (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fixed/Improved when one of the Arefu/Family members being killed not by the player and they went hostile on the player anyways (Thanks to RoyBatterian)
  • Fixed the Big Town robots from disappearing (Thanks to RoyBatterian)

Current Version Changes (2.2)
  • In progress of fixing all of Megaton to account for when npcs are dead for dialogues (Examples: Screen1, Screen2, Screen3)
  • Fixed the doors for entering/exiting into the purifier room that were backwards. When you entered into one of them, you'd be on the opposite side of the room. Thanks to chucksteel
  • Fixed not being able to obtain the Protectron's Gaze and Ant's Sting weapons twice. If you obtained the Protectron's Gaze in dialogue and then kill The Mechanist after, you could have 2 of them in The Superhuman Gambit quest. Same scenario with the Ant's Sting. In those dialogues for both characters, their unique weapons will get removed and get added into your inventory instead.
  • Fixed not gaining/losing karma (for all DLCs as well) towards dogs, vicious dogs, feral ghouls, mad brahmin, turrets, mirelurk kings, mister gutsy, mister handy, protectrons, robobrains, sentry bots, swamplurk queen, and spider drones
  • Improved the Bloody Mess Perk towards the You Gotta Shoot Em In The Head quest. The perk will not be in effect towards those npcs you kill
