General Questions
==============================================

What is FOIP?

The Fallout Interoperability Program (FOIP) is a collective effort by a number of modders to improve compatibility between many of Fallout's major mods. This includes developing a more effective and consistent means of providing Compatibility Patches (CP's) to mod users, tracking updates, and sharing information regarding compatibility issues.

What mods are covered under FOIP?

At the moment, we are focusing on covering the larger, more popular mods under FOIP. This currently includes:

- Classic Fallout Weapons (CFW)
- Energy Visuals Enhanced (EVE)
- Fallout Balance Overhaul (XFO)
- Fallout Overhaul Kit (FOOK)
- Fallout Wanderers Edition (FWE)
- Martigen's Mutant Mod (MMM)
- Project Beauty
- Weapon Mod Kits (WMK)

Over time, additional compatibility patches (CP's) can be developed for other mods where compatibility is desired and/or difficult to achieve.


How do I use FOIP?

FOIP is organized as a series of resources:

Compatibility Patches (CP's)

The FOIP page on the Fallout3Nexus provides a central clearinghouse for all available compatibility patches for all mods participating in FOIP. Rather than having different mods package their own CP's, a single point source can now be used to find the most up-to-date set of CP's for the mods you are using.

Furthermore, compatibility patches will have a standard description field that shows what specific mod versions they are intended to be used with, which will hopefully reduce confusion and conflicts.

Merged Patch
Remeber you still need a merged patch when using FOIP(actually it's even more important when you use FOIP). Please see in this FAQ how to create one.
