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.

If using a mod manager, you can quickly de-activate all mods, install/activate this, then re-activate all other mods.

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:
  1. Burke will only disappear/be disabled from game if you charm him and not blow up megaton
  2. You're able to initiate conversations with Burke at appropriate times including before and after quests
  3. 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
  4. Burke's house isn't level locked and only unlocked with his house key
  5. Burke's house key is back in his inventory
  6. 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
