About this mod

Replaces/adds the Metallic Monks track from Fallout 1/NV to the ambient wind sound effects played in nuke zones.

To address the copyright elephant in the room, Metallic Monks is free-to-download from its composer, Mark Morgan, in Vault Archives, and is classified on the same page as "public domain", meaning it can be used freely without permission.

This track is quite a staple in the series. While not much of a "song" in the way one would normally think, the ambience it provides in Fallout 1 and New Vegas are nothing short of legendary.

This mod replaces or adds the track to the ambient wind sound effect that plays within nuke zones. Granted, the wind sound is obviously not considered "music", so the game's normal music will often play alongside it. Personally, I think it melds quite nicely, however you can always turn the music off in-game if you dislike it.

For clarity purposes, the version with the wind sound maintained has had said wind sound reduced by 5dB, otherwise the track would be nigh inaudible.

To install, first create a "Fallout76Custom.ini" in the following directory (if you don't already have one):
C:\Users\Username\Documents\My Games\Fallout 76\

For the "with vanilla wind sound" version:


Put the following lines in the Fallout76Custom.ini:
[Archive]
sResourceArchive2List = MetallicMonksNukeZones.ba2,

or, if you have multiple mods:
[Archive]
sResourceArchive2List = ExampleMod1.ba2, ExampleMod2.ba2, MetallicMonksNukeZones.ba2,

For the "song only" version:


Put the following lines in the Fallout76Custom.ini:
[Archive]
sResourceArchive2List = MetallicMonksNukeZones_SongOnly.ba2,

or, if you have multiple mods:
[Archive]
sResourceArchive2List = ExampleMod1.ba2, ExampleMod2.ba2, MetallicMonksNukeZones_SongOnly.ba2,

then, simply place the appropriate .ba2 file in your Fallout 76 data directory, which by default is:
C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout76\Data\
