Original Fallout Game Mods and Conversions


Fallout Fixt by Sduibek

This mod amalgamates most available Fallout 1 mods into one installation. In addition to included mods/patches, it fixes many bugs that still existed in the patched version of the game, adds new customizable optional content, and new features. Goal of Fallout Fixt: To enhance, fix and improve the Fallout 1 experience. This includes fixing bugs, restoring features, modifying balance, adding features, and many fixes to text/dialog. In addition to that, all other available mods and patches are rolled into Fixt (see below), meaning that Fallout Fixt is the only thing needed for "the best" Fallout 1 experience. It currently contains:
  • Official Interplay patch (1.1)
  • TeamX patches (1.2, 1.21, 1.3.5)
  • No Children Fix
  • Nimrod's Dialog Fixes (many text improvements)

Fallout Restoration Mod by TeamX

A direct successor of the Fallout Update Mod. It introduces most of the features seen in the Fallout Update Mod and plenty of the new ones. Mod is developed from scratch so it's expected to be more complex, solid and stable than the predecessor. Questionable and incomplete features are being removed. Project is based on the most recent version of the unofficial Fallout Patch v1.3.x.

Since currently only Wasteland Ghost is involved development, release model of the mod had been changed into modular structure. Non-cumulative updates are being released when ready. There are two parts available at this day:
  1. Game Restoration Mod Part 1: "Invasive procedures". An invasion of mutants army in all major towns has been restored. As long as Master exists, he and his army will slowly invade Wasteland. An invasion begins with the destruction of the LA: Boneyard. Then it continues to the Necropolis, Hub, Brotherhood of Steel, Junktown, Shady Sands and finally Vault 13. Note, that by interacting with the game world you can hasten an invasion in certain (or even all) locations. After a town's been invaded, all it's natives are killed and an invading army of mutants appears on the streets.
  2. Game Restoration Mod Part 2: "The Unknown Wasteland". This part deals mostly with caravans and random encounters. A caravan is actually shown, when it arrives in the town. Customers are now roaming around a caravan when it's in the town. A caravan leader now offers you a mini-quest: assist to unload a caravan. Few special encounters are fixed or re-enabled. Alcohol addiction (beer and booze) restored.

Fallout Revisited by Sorrow

This mod changes weapon damages and armor stats to more realistic. Damage Values were calculated with help of 3G3 Guns! Guns! Guns! weapon design system. Earlier versions of the mod were released in Poland and were liked by players. Game world changes: I fictionalized RL weapons and ammo (.44, Desert Eagle, .223) to fit the post WWII divergence and changed AK-112 to be more fitting to retro-futuristic USA. FDM:
  • No AC bonus from armor.
  • Modified HP of civilians and some of opponents - some people had as little HP as 12 (a leftover from GURPS or what?).
  • More random ranged weapons damage - FDM had unrealistically lethal firearms due to less random damage.
  • No HP bonuses for higher level NPCs.
  • Shotguns now fire salvoes of pellets which cause small damage to armored targets, but huge damage to unarmored ones.
