About this mod

This is just a simple music replacement mod to turn Fallout 3's atmosphere a bit darker & unsettleling

Permissions and credits

-Increased the Battle music volume. 
-I replaced the Battle music with music from The Last of Us franchise & one from Days Gone. I also added both the theme songs from The Last of Us & The Last of Us Part 2 to the Public music.

-Added my "Old Radio Transmission Level-Up Sound" mod into this one & the song from the movie Exit Humanity that I had on a separate file.
I also added a modified version of this mod: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/5181
I just made the Bach song that plays in Tenpenny Tower lobby to sound more aged, adding some grain & distortion to it.

-I  added a suprise song for when you go into Tranquility Lane, let's say you'll have a more...  cheeki breeki experience while in the simulation ;)

I wanted to change the feel of Fallout 3 to a darker, more unsettling tone that will make you feel like you really are in a dangerous unforgiving place. I felt that Fallout 3, even though quite dark, was not as dark as it's predecesors Fallout 1 & 2, or just a bit more light hearted, so I tried to bring that feeling back with the music. I feel that audio makes a big difference & I felt that in vanilla Fallout 3 the music was inviting you to explore the wastes like an adventurer, but in reality, if you were on a desolated ravished nuclear wasteland full of dangers, you wouldn't want to be out exploring for the fun of it, & I feel that this did the job at making you feel dread and despair as you walk the waste always keeping you on alert because you don't know what hides in the shadows.

-It creates a very cool atmosphere with:
Flora Overhaul Dead Edition : https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/19864
The Road Warrior Weather (or any weather mod of your choosing): https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/7478
Eerie Ambient: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/17849

I used music from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. & Metro franchises for the Main Menu theme, Exit the Vault music (when you exit the Vault for the first time), Exploration (out in the wastes), Public (in towns & settlements), Base (when you are in some bases like Reiley's Rangers Compound & also near the Capitol, the Washington & the Lincoln memorials), Dungeon music (when you are inside buildings, caves & metro tunnels) & one of the Battle songs (when you are engaged in a battle), but the majority of the battle music is from The Last Of Us franchise. I have also changed the Level Up  music (when you reach a new level) with a lore friendly sound I made with some old radio interference sounds & a classic Fallout song named "Vault of the Future" & the Death music (the one that plays when you die) for the death music from Resident Evil 4.

It can be installed manually or with a mod manager.

-7 Battle Songs

-9 Base Songs

-10 Public Songs
