About this mod

Replaces the vanilla food packaging, Abraxo Cleaner and Box of Detergent textures with some more colorful, detailed ones.

Permissions and credits

Thanks for the hot files guys, you rock!

I love to eat delicious snacks while roaming the wasteland, but the bland textures included in the vanilla game always bothered me. After some thought, I decided to try and see if I could change them. My first retexture for this game!

I came across sELFiNDUCEDcOMA's fine Better Food Textures mod while searching, and loved some of them. I however wasn't big on the idea of renaming the food, and the plugin requirement made the mod not compatible with Simple Needs. Therefore I set upon reverting them to their old names, giving them some flair, and of course, removing the need for a plugin. sELFiNDUCEDcOMA kindly allowed me to use some grimy textures from Better Food Textures here, for which I'm deeply thankful.

Also, for fun, I made a small retexture of the Abraxo Cleaner, based on Arm and Hammer Washing Soda, since all retextures I found tend to change the brand. The colors are pretty different from the original, so I'll leave it as an optional file for anybody who may be interested. There's also a nice retexture of the Box of Detergent, based on Dancing Bubbles, for a nice variety of color. There's also a high-resolution texture of the Sugar Bombs (vanilla style) in 1024, 512 and 256.

These are the items that have been modified:
- Bubblegum
- Radioactive Gum Drops
- Potato Crisps
- Instamash
- Dandy Boy Apples
- Cram
- Yum Yum Deviled Eggs
- Salisbury Steak
- Blamco Mac & Cheese
- Pork N' Beans
- Fancy Lad Snack Cakes
- (Optional) Abraxo Cleaner
- (Optional) Box of Detergent

I looked around for some nice retro-looking labels, although some of them may be a bit off the time setting of the game. I personally think they look great nonetheless.

To install, extract the file to your '\Fallout 3\Data\' folder. That's it!
