About this mod

A shady doctor relocated to Point Lookout many years ago. Can you find his Point Lookout motel room and uncover his motivation for being there?

Permissions and credits

In the Shadow of the Swamp

(It overwrites your existing .esp from episode I & II)

v 1.08

A shady doctor took up residence in Point Lookout years ago. Exploring his motel room may yield clues as to his motivation for being there as well as the plan he had laid out for the residents of Point Lookout.

A biologist travelled to Point Lookout to research and document the symbiotic relationship between Punga plants and the indigenous Punga scorpions. Will his research bring him into contact with the disreputable doctor from Episode I?

A young anthropologist finds herself taxed with investigating the history and culture of the swampfolk in the Point Lookout area. She finds more than she bargained for in the murky swamps.


Enclosed in the latest patch you'll find a new .esp: PLFewerItems.esp. It makes numerous changes to the Point Lookout environment as a whole to make it more difficult; principal to its design is a reduction in healing items found strewn about.



v 1.00

The objective of this mod is to reduce the amount of various healing items and ammunition available in Point Lookout and make the player's trek through this DLC more challenging.

The amount of stimpaks, ammunition, and miscellaneous items in Point Lookout annoyed me. Finding multiple stimpaks on swampfolk just seemed wrong, and the sheer *amount* of stuff didn't sit well with me. Those who favor a more challenging experience with limited provisions and suboptimal equipment may enjoy the changes implemented by this mod.


  • Drastically lower the amount of stimpaks and ammunition in Point Lookout
  • Lower the number of items found on Swampfolk, especially stimpaks
  • Reduce the stimpaks & medical items found in Point Lookout first aid kits
  • Remove numerous healing items strewn about like confetti from several portions of the DLC


This mod was tested using the new 1.7 patch, but should not require it for functionaility. Regardless, it is recommended that you update to the latest 1.7 patch.

Thanks for checking out my mod. Please don't forget to rate and/or leave comments in the comments thread. Have fun


I would like to thank
for his generous donation of a Punga respawn script. I incorporated a slightly modified version of it into this mod.

I'd like to thank joefoxx082 for his excellent work on the 14mm pistol. I used his model, sounds, and texture in this mod. The pistol's texture has been modified to make it consistent with Tiger Manufacturing's product line. If you would like to see the original direct your browser to:

The new Tiger Caspian is based on the fantastic MP7 meshed & textured by the always impressive HeroinZero. The weapon's texture has been modified to make it consistent with Tiger Manufacturing's product line. If you would like to see the original direct your browser to:
