Original description from the Fallout 3 version of Alton IL, by EMH:

Alton, IL- a two and a half year project started in March of 2009, and most likely the largest Fallout 3 mod to date. Alton was created by Elijah Houck, alongside a team of numerous and indispensable voice actors (including DarkSpace (Nathan Mubasher) among others), resource creators, beta testers, and even our own composer, the talented Justin Hardin (aka jhardingame).

Alton, IL features an expansive and highly immersive quest in which you not only try to find your way home after ending up in my imagining of post-apocalyptic Alton, Illinois, but also choose sides at the brink of all out war between two factions. During your stay in Alton, prepare to be sucked into the lore as you play through the branched main quest, an adventure that will have you choose which faction you will side with for the rest of your stay. Will you side with the Plague, a group of damned vault dwellers seeking revenge, or will you fight with the Underground Railroad, the largest city in Alton?

Alton, IL also includes numerous side quests, dozens of new locations to visit, and a fully explorable world twice the size of Point Lookout, completely separate from the Capital Wasteland. Alton is also easily replayable, thanks to the split halfway through the main quest. Alton is NOT a total conversion, it is seperate from the Wasteland. Think of Point Lookout, where you travel there whenever you want.

For you fellow modders out there, see this as a new world for you to expand upon. Running out of space in DC for house mods? Feel free to renovate a ruined ranch house and release it as your own mod. Got a cool idea for a farming mod? There's a cornfield in Alton with 2,880 hand-placed dead corn stalk models (I'm not kidding). I only ask that you link to this page and credit me as the author of Alton. Feel free to send me links of what you've created, I'd love to try it out!

Alton is something I have been extremely passionate about and has been a huge part of my life for the past two years. I'm overjoyed to finally release it to the public, and am always open to suggestions. Please report any bugs found, but make sure to check for any known incompatibilities or bugs here before commenting.

Welcome back to Alton, newcomer.

924 Creative Works is proud to bring you Alton, IL, freshly converted to Tale of Two Wastelands 3.2! There is currently a version that exists for 2.9, however, as far as I'm aware, no such thing exists for 3.2, so here it is!

The decision to do my own conversion of Alton was born from a post on /r/FalloutMods on Reddit. I have a bit of a personal connection to this mod, you see; it's the whole reason my own project, Washington's Malevolence, even exists! I was inspired to create my own project after playing through this, so I felt like I kinda owed it to this project to give it a place in TTW 3.2!

I want to give a HUGE thanks to Elijah Houck for allowing me to not only do this conversion, but post it here on the New Vegas Nexus!

This is the English version of the mod only; I am unable to translate the mod to any other language at this time. The community is more than welcome to do so!

This is basically a straight up barebones conversion of the Fallout 3 version currently available, with New Vegas-specific bug fixes. However, included with the download is an optional ESM, hereby dubbed "The Janitor's Cleanup", that includes several minor changes to the presentation, as well as a few bits of content that I've hidden in different places. The reason for keeping it separate was to make sure the mod could be experienced as it was in Fallout 3.

As with the Fallout 3 version, you are free to make mods for this version of Alton. I will be more than happy to post the links to any mods y'all create!

All screenshots (except the Happy Holidays photograph) were taken by Janitor Dave inside the TTW version of Alton IL. The screenshots are almost exact replicas of the original screenshots of the Fallout 3 version taken by EMH. The Happy Holidays photograph was made by Elijah Houck for the original Fallout 3 version of Alton IL.

REQUIREMENTS/OTHER NOTES

  • Fallout New Vegas
  • Tale of Two Wastelands 3.2
  • This mod does NOT require any external plugins.
  • Do not contact EMH for support with this version. While he is the original mod author for the Fallout 3 version, Team Silent Pizza is the sole entity responsible for support for Alton IL in TTW 3.2 as there are changes that are specific to this version and I don't want him to be bothered over bugs for this version. This note is also in the Permissions section.

FILES USED

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KNOWN ISSUES
  • Some of the voice acting is missing from the re-voiced files. The re-voicing project was missing some dialogue files, and as a result, this cannot be fixed. I intentionally avoided using the dialogue files from the Fallout 3 version for the re-voiced characters to avoid auditory whiplash.

INSTALLATION

  • Extract the contents of the file to your Data folder of your TTW installation.
  • Alternately, just use Mod Organizer 2
