About this mod

This mod just contains a texture
if you decide to use the OPTIONAL .esp the location of the gun is in your "Megaton player home"

NOTE: If you don't like the stats of the gun feel free to change them via the G.E.C.K.

Permissions and credits
This IS NOT an overhaul mod!! This "mod" just adds the G3 Assault rifle with a brand new texture into the Megaton Player Home.

There is also and OPTIONAL .esp for those who don't know how to add the texture to the game themselves. 


If you didn't already know the location it is located:
Inside the Player house in Megaton


None that I'm aware of other than the base game
If you do have compatibility issues
I am using FOSE (Fallout Script Extender) and Archive Invalidation Invalidator


Place the textures folder inside you Fallout 3 directory (Fallout3, Data Directory)
Optional .esp - Place the "G3AssaultRifle.esp" in your fallout 3 data directory (located in your "Fallout 3" folder, then select "Data")


I also changed the original stats of the gun:
- So, there is no spread   (the gun is more accurate), 

- There is also a higher dps and higher damage   (Original damage was 8, Now it is 15) (Original DPS = 32, Now it is 64)

- There is now 25 bullets per clip   (originally there was 24/clip)

- A lower weight of 5 lbs.   (originally 7lbs.)

- A higher chance to hit in vats   (originally the base hit chance WAS 45%, it is now 65% chance)

- Increase in weapon value   (1500 caps)

- Higher crit damage   (was originally 8, Now it is 30)

- The gun durability was increased a lot   (originally it was 100, now it is 1000) 

- Other than that the sound, as well as the ammo of the original Assault Rifle stayed the same
all the animations stayed the same as well


So I didn't really like the original texture of the "G3 Assault Rifle" so I used a program called "GIMP" to make a new texture! :D 
I hope you like the new texture, and the stronger Assault Rifle. (I personally don't know if this mod is "Lore-friendly", but if you really want it to be then YOU can place a note beside it saying the original owner of the house "left it behind")

I am sorry for the people who decided to blow up megaton prier to obtaining this weapon, because there is no other way to obtain it in game.
 (UNLESS you use cheats or Implement into the game yourself)

Mods I used in the video provided:

Sprint mod


Just give me credit if you decide to use MY texture.
Other than that I don't care if you repost it with different stats, or a new location, etc...
