    I'm no longer working on FO3, it is deleted from my PC. Passed my role onto Roy. Had a lot of fun working on this game over the years. Thanks for all the support. I'll still be around of course for comments and such.

    For anyone running into the issue of the program crashing your windows explorer, here is the solution.

    Right click installer > Properties; at the bottom of the menu, there will be a box that says unblock. Your computer is blocking all changes or actions from this program because it came from another computer. Check that box, apply and close the window and try it again.

    Please sticky for others to see. I've noticed a few people with this complaint recently.

    I am no longer interested in Fallout 3 nor do I have the time for it or the Fallout 3 community.

    I just came here to post a question after getting into this game again after many years away and I'm sad to see that it's no longer in development. This is truly a godly patch / mod for an epic game. Many thanks to those that helped contribute over the years. It is appreciated beyond what my words can ever express. Fallout 3 is one of my favorite games of all time and your 10 years of devotion only made it that much better.

    I might as well post my question for discussion anyway and I apologize if this has already been addressed. Shouldn't the Winterized T-51b have at least the same 50DR and 2000 hit points as the standard T-51b? From what we know of established Fallout lore, all power armor of the same generation (T-45, T-51, etc.) and model revision (a,b,c,d,e,f) have the exact same comparative specifications aside from any post-production defensive coatings such as winterizing paint. If anything, the suit of Winterized T-51b could be considered to be slightly better than the uncoated model, but certainly not worse.

    It's also possible that the Winterized armor is actually T-51a instead of b, but there's nothing obvious to indicate that it's named incorrectly in-game. The helmet also has the correct specs for T-51b which would indicate that the inferior specs are simply the result of a developer oversight.

    Thoughts?

      Is very sad to see this community dead. But if you are still there we can learn moding of this game together. And create new generations of Fallout 3

      A late response but I can answer this.

      No, there isn't a T-51a model. The armor found in Operation Anchorage is the standard T-51b power armor, the only difference being is that its Winterized. General Chase refers to the armor as so.

      As for the stats, some developer probably thought it would be "OP" to have T-51b power armor be obtainable so easily. So they decided to nerf the Winterized armor by giving it 5% less DR and 1000 less health points as way of balancing the game. Which, doesn't make any sense lore wise but this is Bethesda, the same guys who gave us the wrong version of the armor ( Were supposed to receive the wasteland version of the armor, not the sim version which has 10 million hit points.) .

      That, or they didn't want players to ignore the rusted T-51b power armor which was already in the game. They only downside to the regular armor is that it can't be repaired with anything. The Winterized armor ( The wasteland version) can at least be repaired with the old T-45d suits.

      I do hope somebody can one day continue this mod. I've stopped using it personally as it's no longer maintained. And it has a couple of bugs. If someone can pick it up and redo it, then that would be amazing, but I won't hold my breath.

      1. "And it has a couple of bugs." but also corrected a LOT of other bugs, IF you didn't notice.
      2. " I've stopped using it personally as it's no longer maintained." Your loss. Frankly. Besides, no one cares about of what you are using or not.
      3. It doesn't have to be perfect, it has to be functional. And IT IS very functional.
      4. What it was started, should also be stopped. It cannot continue ad infinitum.
      The forest is there, despite its trees.

      I'll say this, it fixes some pretty big game-breaking things. . . annoying stuff really that on PC can be gotten around, but most the stuff I see for this mod is just nit-picking NPC dialog (like not understanding 'me' means my, but it's an accent, yet the word my is replaced with me, because I dunno.) or "fixing" stuff that isn't a bug, but something they just didn't like.

      It's unfortunate that so many good fixes are lumped in with some nit-pick, a bit like I'm doing now. It's like when you want a mod that changes how guns aim down iron-sights but it for whatever reason decides it also wants to chage how people look or what weapons they have and adds others and tried to do more than what it was advertised as / people want.

      But this is just me being devils advocate and VERY ungrateful. Truth be told, I'm glad the mod exists and I DO love it, but that dosn't mean there aren't down sides and me pointing them out dosn't mean I hate it or the creators/maintainors. Critisism is part of the creative process, is my point.

    When I installed the patch and looked in the data folder I did not find the Unofficial Fallout 3 patch.bsa, and only the esm file. Do I re-install this patch.

      No, the author clearly has pinned a cmoment stating that he no longer has any interest in Fallout 3. Consider the current version of this mod as final.

      @RoyBatterian. I find the GOG version of Fallout 3 runs better than the Steam version on newer systems. But I suppose it won't work for everyone.

    Can you safely uninstall and reinstall the mod in order to bypass a glitch (getting RL-3) or will it corrupt your save file?

      Hi,
      save corruption from removing or changing mods mid-game is an issue born with Skyrim (I ignore whether or not it plagues FO4 as well).
      Luckily, Fallout 3 -and Oblivion before it- are immune.

      That said, don't expect to remove a mod as big as this patch and nothing funny happens while it's gone.
      The less places you go to, the less people you meet... in other words: "the least you do" while this patch is off, the better.

      Ciao ciao

      [edit]
      Ok. Stupid question: wasn't there a mod supposed to deal with the RL-3 bug?? (for the life of me I can't remember its name)
      If you find it, better add that to your game than remove the UUFO3 patch...

      Uninstalling and reinstalling mods mid play is always a terrible idea no matter what Bethesda game it is.

    this is the only mod ive installed and it crashed my game on start up, also it crashes nnm, where it will freeze for 5mins then unfreeze. It only happens if i click on the mod or do anything that has the mod displayed like downloading or installing. Also the mod doesnt install at all. At first I thought it was the my directories were messed up but i installed another mod and that worked perfectly. So this mod cant install at all.
    Any help since it seems to be this mod that caused the problem.
