Replaces the bulk of the tired and crappy food packaging textures with high quality ones; replacing some with new ones like freeze-dried Rocketship Ice Cream! FYI: Comes with PLUGIN!!!!

[size=+1]///// DETAILS & FEATURES /////[/size]

A while back I decided to replace the Radioactive Gum Drops with a new food item. Atomic Power Bars. I just found that texture and food item to be extra crappy, and, I had some ideas I wanted to incorporate as part of an overhaul mod I am working on -- Fallout 3 Redux.

I also wanted to develop my texturing skills, and felt that this is one area of the game that decent mods for haven't been created for. I also didn't just want to create high-res versions of the original ones, but put some extra effort into these textures and add to the world of Fallout -- you'll understand when you read some of the packaging fine print ;).

I started off with one, then a second, then a third one and before I knew it, I had done them all! Well, all the ones that are part of the one 'foodpackaging.dds' texture. So there are new textures for:

> Bubblegum -- now: Red Chief Gum!
> Radioactive Gum Drops -- now: Atomic Power Bar!
> Potato Crisps -- now: Rocketship Ice Cream!
> Instamash
> Dandy Boy Apples -- now: Dandy Boy Cherry Poppers!
> Cram
> Yum Yum Deviled Eggs -- now: Whole Hog Lard!
> Salisbury Steak
> Blamco Mac & Cheese -- now: All-Natural Powered Milk!
> Pork N' Beans
> Fancy Lad Snack Cakes -- now: Bad Wolf Honey Buns!

Both Atomic Power Bar and Pork N' Beans have new models (nifs), with Pork N' Beans having a new can texture. The ones that needed it now have new Pipboy inventory icons. I also changed the stats for Atomic Power Bar, Rocketship Ice Cream (and Junk Food variant) and Whole Hog Lard. This is along with changing names for others, in that I felt the stats undersold the new food items -- especially the rare Atomic Power Bars.

In the future I may do the rest found in the game, at which point I'll update this mod.

[size=+1]///// INSTALL /////[/size]

First, your going to either have to manually set archive invalidated or use Fallout Mod Manager (FOMM) to do this automatically for you -- or ArchiveInvalidated invalidated. I'm not going to tell you how to do these, try searching Nexus or Googling it ;).

1. Extract the mod files to a temporary location.
2. Examine the folder structure and make corrections where necessary.
3. Copy files to (install folder)\Fallout 3\Data\
4. Start Fallout Launcher click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the BetterFoodPackaging.esp file.
OR: Run Fallout Mod Manager and checkmark the file in the mod list and then Launch Fallout 3.

[size=+1]///// USAGE /////[/size]

This is more of a modder's resource so people are free to use it as long as credit is given to myself and to those below; however, please don't port it over to New Vegas. I will be doing that myself when I get around to it. Thanx.

Oh, and endorsing this mod would be nice as well ;).
