Familiar with this FO3 Mods?

Question

I'm spending the next couple of days checking out these listed mods to see if I can find any issues with them, if they do what they say they do, compatibility and what not... Obviously it would take more than a day or two for me to completely test them out so I was curious if anyone has any direct experience with them. I didn't want to clutter up Kelmych's forum with this question. The Jefferson Crash Fix is a God send for me as i lost an entire RP series back when due to the issue it fixes. 

 

Jefferson - Rivet City Crash Fix

Point Lookout - Double Barrelled Shotgun fix

Radio Ownership Fix

Council Seat Fix

Fixes Wasteland Scout Hat

I previously looked at several of them but I wasn't sure they were useful and hadn't had time to test them. There wasn't enough detail in the comment posts to be sure they were. They all look like good candidates for the guide and I don't think they are in the Unofficial Fallout 3 patch.

Good to see you  = )

 

The Double Barrel "fix" works just fine. Checked it out in xEdit as well and what it changes seems to make sense to me. I read the comments on it and people complain that it's not a fix but unless you have a gun with double triggers (and the option to shoot one barrel at a time) I've never heard of (or could even find on google) a double barrel shotgun that has to shoot two shots at once. I'll be using this one. I like not going through 2 shells at once... need to check the others = )

 

Edit: Of all the "fixes" on nexus these were the only ones that didn't seem to be a part of anything else. I had a list from Yuk and other mod authors but they all seemed to have been put in the patch.

Great and thanks for checking these out. They will be added to the guide shortly. I'll add a post to the guide thread about this and a few other mods I have been following.

Absolutely = ) This series is something I've wanted to do for a long time. Finally have the abilities to do it correctly.

 

Radio Fix works as described. In the Family subway station there is a radio (and some other places but only tested this one) that is red instead of green. Turn the radio off and the guard shoots you like you stole something. With the mod the radio is now green, no ownership, turn it off and on and the guard doesn't care. I couldn't find anything in xEdit that would tell me what the mod was about (maybe just lack of experience with it) but from what the author says he only set these specific "problem radios" to not have ownership, nothing else. Guessing I need to open the mod in the GECK to check out what was done better? ... though I don't think there is a need to.

 

Edit: off to the council....

Council Seat Fix works just fine as well. Simple. Adds the Railway Rifle Schematic as an additional gift (makes sense reading the mod page). Just ran through it using the wiki to guide me quickly. 

 

EDIT:

Scout Hat Fix adds meshes like it says. Seems to relate to FormID 00074952 in the Fallout.esm which is KIDOutfitWastelandChild03Hat with the name Wasteland Scout Hat. 

This hat is suppose to not be anywhere in the game due to the bad mesh in the vanilla game.. though... i don't know how to look to see if it exists or not? I may add this to my own plugin later on if I find that it fits somewhere. Definitely not a CaPD guide mod... i think?... unless the hat is in the game world and I just don't know how to find it...

Final note for this thread = )

 

The Jefferson Crash Fix is something hard to show because I don't think that it happens for everyone. Again, I did lose my entire first FO3 RP series due to this issue lol but all the save files are long gone because I gave up on it before this mod was creative.

 

This fix Deletes a leveled mini gun super mutant at FFSuperMutantCamp 04 . All the mod does is add a Deleted flag to this creature. (looked in xedit). To really know if it works someone would have to be in the situation that I was in, load the mod and test it. Not even sure it's possible to guarantee that you will encounter this issue unless under specific conditions (High enough level, happened to me before going into the Jefferson Memorial a second time... dad already dead... scientists ready to go..). I'll be using it because it's only a single creature being deleted and the issue was horrible. Though I can't give proof of it's purpose.

      This is a beta of [FNV|FO3|FO4|FO4VR|TES5|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERAL|ENDERALSE]LODGen/Edit with terrain LOD meshes and textures generation.
      This is for experienced mod authors and users that know how to use xEdit, xLODGen or DynDOLOD already.
      Installation and Setup
      Download
      xLODGen beta 94 - based on 4.1.4b
      Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any Steam, game or mod manager folders or special Windows folders like Program Files.
      Rename xLODGen.exe to [game mode]LODGen.exe (TES5LODGen.exe for example) or start with command line parameter -fnv, -fo3, -fo4, -fo4vr, -tes5, tes5vr, -sse, -enderal, -enderalse
      Use -o:"c:\OutputPath\" command line parameter to change where files are generated to, default is the game folder.
      Do not generate into any game, any mod manager folders or special Windows folder like Program Files x86.
      Requirements
      Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 - Required by LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe and Texconv.exe/Texconvx64.exe. Get matching platform x86/x64 depending on which xLODGen.exe (x86) or xLODGenx64.exe (x64) is used.
      RTFM and Share Results
      See the included Skyrim-Occlusion-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions or give feedback in the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread.
      See the included Terrain-LOD-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the settings for terrain LOD generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions about terrain LOD in this thread for a more in-depth explanation if required and share feedback (with screenshots) about results or problems.
      These tools generate LOD meshes and textures "exactly" like CK, but not like the meshes and textures which are shipping with the games (they are often manually edited).
      However, these tools provide more options and higher resolutions (use the x64 version if there are memory errors because you believe you require 4k or higher) and can be updated to add more useful features and options.
      I did some testing in the different games, but finding the best combinations of options and settings requires lots of testing and are a matter of personal opinion and which game is used, the load order, mods, even different worldspaces probably.
      That means, I am only able to give generic guidelines and hints to send you off to find and test for yourself and share your results. My main interested is that generations works correctly and without problems for now.
      Check out the thread xLODGen Terrain Settings Compare. Also refer to any modding guide which has a list of relevant mods close to your load order.
      The object and tree LOD generation is the same as the current versions of xEdit / xLODGen. Refer to their respective descriptions and explanations.
      Obviously, users of Skryim/Enderal/Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/EnderalSE continue to use the easier and more comprehensive DynDOLOD for drastically improved object and tree LOD generation and only use xLODGen for terrain LOD (and maybe Occlusion) generation.
      First Time
      Here are suggestion to start without going crazy and that should be quick enough to generate:
      Set quality of meshes for LOD4 to 5 and then +5 for each next level. Or just set levels 8/16/32 to 10.
      Check protect cell borders (yes it fixes the ugly terrain drops at outer cell borders that still exist in Fallout 4).
      Use the max vertices setting only if you want to hard limit max file size.
      In Skyrim Special Edition or Skyrim VR, if you notice terrain briefly flickering when new areas are loading in, set [Display] bEnableLandFade=0 in Skyrim.INI
      Set Optimize Unseen to off for LOD4 for first generation. Start experimenting with a value of 550 with a quality setting of 10 or lower for LOD32 (used for map) and compare coastlines and file size to other settings.
      To quickly generate terrain LOD meshes just for the map, check only terrain LOD Meshes, check the Specific Chunk checkbox and set drop down to 32. Leave SW fields empty for complete map or set SW cell coordinates to same values as a *.btr filename to test a specific area with lots of water, river etc.
      Set texture sizes to 512 for a start. Larger sizes and large world spaces will take a considerable time (like 15 to 30 minutes or more easily). Each higher resolution means quadruple the work.
      Use DXT1 for diffuse and 565 (DXT1 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition and VRAM is not of concern use BC7. Uncheck mipmaps, raise steepness and Bake normal maps.
      For now, leave the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma at 0 and 1.0 respectively. It seems that only Skyrim CK and Skyrim SE CK are manipulating the intensity of the textures to adjust for the noise.dds and the god awful "improved" snow shader of Skyrim SE (just turn that thing off, really). If textures seem too dark in the game, brighten the noise.dds instead or vice versa. That way you can get perfectly matching LOD textures that look just like the textures in the loaded cells. For Skyrim a good average color of the noise texture seems to be around #C0. See below for a couple noise texture downloads.
      If you want to test larger texture sizes, use the chunk option to limit the number of textures that need to be generated. For example, check [x] Specific chunk, leave the drop down empty and set WS to the lower left cell coordinate of an 32x32 area, like 0, 0. It will then generate all textures up to 31,31. Not all worldspaces have their origin at 0,0 so you will have to check already generated meshes/texture filenames for their lower left coordinates.
      Questions and Feedback
      Obliviously anything related to terrain LOD should be posted in this thread.
      Posts related to Occlusion should be made here.
      Recommended Optionals
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega)
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega) - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots)
      SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm (Mega) - Entire map from -96,-96 to 95,96 with northern ocean extension. Useful for mod authors.
      Put in game data folder obviously. Adds back terrain for Skyrim (Tamriel worldspace) at the outer edges so there is no missing terrain meshes/textures when generating terrain LOD for Skyrim.
      Load as early with lowest priority as possible, so that any other plugins overwriting or adding land records or cells with the same coordinates take precedence.
      Only required to be loaded when generating terrain LOD. No harm done when loaded in-game but typically the player can not get close to these areas. There are no effects outside the far away added cells.
      Noise
      Single color flat noise, Adjusted vanilla noise, HD Terrain Noise Texture SE
      Examples for Skyrim. Install to game folder like any other texture mod. The noise texture is applied in-game on top of terrain LOD textures, so no effect for LOD generation.
      Only the red channel is used in case the textures is not a grey channel format. MipMaps are ignored. The textures is tiled 3x3 per LOD quad, e.g. for LOD level 4, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 4 cells, for LOD level 8, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 8 cells and so on.
      Test-Terrain-Tamriel.7z
      For testing terrain LOD distances. Plain color terrain LOD textures for Tamriel with coordinates for every LOD quad. Green for LOD 4, yellow for LOD8, blue for LOD 16 and red for LOD 32.

      Well not exactly shure is it Megatone it's after leaving Vault 101 heading in that direction and it CTD before I even reach mail box with grenade. Here is my mods load order:

      Well my main suspect is "Caravan Fast Travel", because it messes up with travelling traders and those are always present in this area when you start the game. I runed xEdit and looked for conflicts, but I haven't found anything obvious to paching. I'm kinda shitty in this. In most cases I have no idea what I'm doing. Additional confusing is created by fact that I am apparently spoiled by New Vegas modding community where many mods are updated to unofficial patch. Here it isn't the case so when xEdit vomit list of conflicts many of them are simply with unofficial patch and because I'm stupid I don't know if I should do anything with them.
      Already tried:
      - creating merged patch: it was empty, I deleted it.
      - changing iNumHWThreads from 2 to 1 and disabling Vsync, didn't help.
      - cleaning DLC's and mods, but in this case I am not even shure if I performed this correctly.
      There are also things that I wanted to do but failed. Apparently command isdllloaded in fallout 3 console doesn't exist so I can't even say that I'm 100% sure is those mods are really loaded.
      My game is Fallout 3 from GOG with all DLCs, probably the one that is called GOTY by wide modding comunity (I'm not even know what it means).
      I would really try to make this work, but already finished my short list of actions that I can perform.
      So, I vomited all this stuff, because I was very focused and now can properly introduce myself. Sorry for that order, but with age I realised that it's very easy for me to get distracted. I'm playing games since elementary school, those were times of Baldur's Gate which had great cinematic localisation in my language and first Fallout, which didn't. This is my first post in this forum (probably, because I already had an account and have no idea when I created it). At this moment I jobless, so I decided to take my time and play games for month or two before going to another job. Last time played New Vegas (It's possible that I change jobs too often).
      I'm done boring. Big thanks for help in advance and if don't get anywhere with this it's The Journey thats really matter, not the destination. Right?
