    Ive just started playing this again and was wondering where or what is the best texture pack for the environment in the game?

    I cant seem to find anything tho so far have installed an enhanced rain and snow addon a ui reducing addon and just downloading something called FOOK.

    any other recommendations? havent downloaded any of the DLC yet as i want to have a little run through the game and see if it will keep me hooked.

    thanks

    dont forget the mmmf mod,probably the best mod out there apart from fook,also dont forget the masterupdater...mmmf allows you to increase the spawn rate and lots of other things,which is important if you are using slower leveling and wasteland mastery combined iwth 10 year respawn...i suggest you readup about each mod before you install it


    i have over 100 mods and i very rarely crash whatsoever,its the way you install the mods,just follow the instructions and always use FOMM(fallout mod manager)

    Have you tried a forced refresh of the site (CTRL + F5 instead of just F5, or perhaps it was ALT or Shift, one of them should work.)

    Also try deleting temporary files to remove any old cached stuff, you can keep cookies to avoid losing log-in information and such.

    Other than that your ISP might be a bit slow with updating from the old to the new after the server move, site works just fine here for example.

    there should be from what i recall dunno mothership zeta was so short and not very memorable, but by the time you should be getting hoarded by alot of aliens you should have your gear off in a side room before you hit the halls that you run into a ton of them, also at the point the little girl wants you to quick go in there, or stealth past the first few halls and rooms with them in or something, dunno i had my trusty m41a pulse rifle and i just love shooting stuff with it. but she tells you get in here, or go left now and stuff when discreation might be the better part of valor.

    use vats and aim for the heads, to kill the tougher aliens, kinda like them ghoul reavers, real pain less you get clean head shots on them. but i think you missed the room with your gear in is why your having so many issues. its a room with liek 4 storage containers in it and your gear is in one of them the wall opposite the door if i remember right. after the first section right after the girl opens unlocks the door. i think your gear was in that little section before you get to the halls.

    did not enjoy zeta all that much, thought point lookout was good and broken steel the best of the whole lot. with the pitt kinda eh i went to school in pittsburgh so i hate the place lol.

    thanks, in that case ill load an earlier save and restart zeta and have a better look. i agree broken steel and point lookout were the best dlc's so far , ill see how i feel after i finish zeta.

    maybe a background task interfering? try turning everything off before you play, cause ive never had that problem and ive played it thru 5 times so far.

    I was at level 18 in my current game (Steam) when it crashed (it was actually behaving rather nicely up 'til then). As usual, I restarted and went to continue from my last quicksave (at Rivet City, with Harkness about to slay Zimmer after I did the Replicated Man quest). However, when the game started my character was outside of vault 101 and got the messages "you have become addicted to a drug...." and "you have discovered several locations and may now fast travel...". I had no apparel and, upon checking my pipboy, had absolutely no items, quests or any markers on the map (contradicting that fast travel message), my skills at the basic 15 each, zero XPs, and without even the haircut that I'd selected.

    I tried again, this time going through "Load". I thought it was good that "Load" showed my latest quicksave in Rivet City as mentioned above, and my latest auto save a short time before that. However, the result was the same. Naked and unarmed outside the vault, easy picking even for a mere bloatfly.

    I've got a message in to steam suppport, but was kinda hoping for a quicker fix. (If there is one.)

    Any suggestions? (I verified the game cache integrity and defragged through the Steam game properties, but without any difference.)

    Fwiw, I run a few mods from FO3 Nexus - the high res texture packs for terrain (including rocks)/ megaton/ rivet city, as well as the quick manhole entrance to underworld and some additional tracks for GNR. They were all working very well, and I run the same ones on my lappy except for the quick manhole to underworld one. (I downloaded the manhole ones most recently - just a couple days ago.)

    edit: I downloaded the FO mod manager to see what it showed in the saved game list and the list was empty. (I hadn't used FOMM previously.)
