Fallout 3 DLC Retextured (by QuasarX aka MagnesiumFire)

Recommended Posts

Fallout 3 DLC Retextured is meant to complement NMC's texture pack, covering all the DLC textures.

 

There are two locations to get this mod.

 

Falcon Lair has a single download containing all the files  However, this download uses an .exe installer. 

 

Alternatively Modgames.net contains pure texture/mesh archives, but is split for each DLC:

  1. Operation Anchorage: https://modgames.net/load/fallout3/modeli_i_tekstury/dlc_operation_anchorage_retexture/33-1-0-16671
  2. The Pitt: https://modgames.net/load/fallout3/modeli_i_tekstury/dlc_the_pitt_retexture/33-1-0-16642
  3. Broken Steel: https://modgames.net/load/fallout3/modeli_i_tekstury/dlc_broken_steel_retexture/33-1-0-16752
  4. Point Lookout: https://modgames.net/load/fallout3/modeli_i_tekstury/dlc_point_lookout_retexture/33-1-0-16648
  5. Mothership Zeta: https://modgames.net/load/fallout3/modeli_i_tekstury/dlc_mothership_zeta_retexture/33-1-0-16847

 

NOTE: Both sites are in Russian and require an account to download, which is free to do.

 

EDIT: Removed Falcon-Lair link due to iissues with apparent rampant piracy on their site.  Modgames however has a better rep and I know the owners have gotten permission for the mods where appropriate.

Is there a specific reason why this user is not uploading to the Nexus or similar? Generally, we don't get mods from non-English language sites if we can help it.

The files contain textures and meshes. The author's comments mention that most are built from scratc. Only a few replace textures or meshes provided by any other mods, and all the textures and meshes are at much higher resolution than vanilla. I expect the author is more comfortable using moddb (and mediafire where most of the files are actually stored) than Nexus. I agree that the exe version would be a concern but those aren't the links we are interested in using.

Quite a few of the Russian Fallout community don't seem to use the nexus at all.  There are a couple versions of mods that I've had to get from there because only the updated versions are there (e.g. a more stable Busworld with comparability built in).  While I understand not wanting to post non-english sites, the fact that this texture pack is of high quality and covers ALL the DLC, which remain virtually untouched otherwise, made it worth it.  I do agree on the .exe.  I listed it as it is however as it is technically the latest version.  I can remove the link if mods think it is inappropriate.

My issue is just signing up to another site more than anything else. Just sick of signups and trying to recall all the damn passwords. 

 

They might be high quality, and Kelmych wouldn't add them if they weren't, I'm sure. I'd feel more happy if it was a site in English, cause I'm still leery about translators, etc. Don't want to click something I'm not 100% confident in.

I just used a Google Translator Firefox plugin (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-translator/?src=ss) to translate what each link says and to read the descriptions.  It works quite well.  I understand being leery, but the site checks out and while a slight pain to make another account, it was worth it for me to have the best Fallout 3/NV I can get.

Ok fair enough. Your call, and I'm respectful of it. I'll still pass for now, though.

I know that modgames.net site. I've gotten a few files from there and scanned them with Malwarbytes or Bitdefender without any problems. I haven't used the other one though, but they look way better than some sites I've found. There was an East Asian site I was looking at a while ago and it was way worse, had to jump through hoops on some shady sites for files. I really want to just download all the ones on that site and put them on my Copy so anyone can PM for it.

The modgames downloads just redirect to mediafire. And yandex whatever that is.

 

Operation Anchorage: https://www.mediafire.com/download/d1c1vp8g1jbgb8y/Operation+Anchorage.7z

The Pitt: https://www.mediafire.com/download/boi3u7tgqan5htt/ThePitt.7z

Broken Steel: https://www.mediafire.com/download/fwksyu0v6auw32u/BrokenSteel.7z

Point Lookout: https://www.mediafire.com/download/ql238cvbl494re3/PointLookout.7z

Mothership Zeta: https://yadi.sk/d/hdprwCDcWxKzD

 

There's nothing inherently shady about not using the Nexus by the way. There are plenty of reasons not to like it. Some very prominent Oblivion modders are conspicuous by their absence on that site. Less so with the newer games I think, which I put down to lack of options. Anyway this guide seems like an excellent excuse to dig up mods in other places.

It's not that it's not Nexus, it's that I'm not signing up to another site in a foreign language. End of Story.

Don't need to. Just use the mediafire links. I assume you're interested in the mods.

 

If anyone uses Mothership Zeta Crew, the same guy retextured that:

https://yadi.sk/d/SPrFyvOiWW57g

 

He also made some fixes for the NMC pack which are pretty interesting:

https://www.mediafire.com/download/9rc2cd9s2f1cxa3/NMC+0.9.7z

 

I'm installing some of these now. I'll make some before and after pics.

I'll change the guide to reference the mediafire links, and I'll also look at the other files mentioned

Yea I had seen the other two files, but hadn't had a chance to look at them.  I already use a cleaning .bat for NMCs to remove some of the bad texture.  I plan on looking to see if MagnesiumFire replaces the same ones.

      Hey guys,
      Decided to redo my LODS yesterday, basically wanted them in a higher res. So i opened Texgen and i got this error. I was using it last week and there was no problem with it.
      Does anyone know how i can fix this error?  
      Thanks in advance for any help/advice!
       
      Error: Error copying textures\architecture\windhelm\whruinstone_n.dds to  D:\Games\Modding\DynDOLOD\TexGen_Output\DynDOLOD-temp\textures\architecture\windhelm\whruinstonedark_n.dds   The system cannot find the path specified.
       
      Kind Regards, 
      Tris

      I noticed we don't have a mod brainstroming mega thread for people to dump and discuss any cool ideas they have but have no interest in producing and/or ability to do so. 

      Sort of a no bad ideas thing.

      I thought I'd get started.

      In researching other stuff, I noticed that Skyrim dumps (quite literally) the dead bodies.

      It might be a cool mod to create a set of realms of the dead (headed by the various gods and daedra) where you could be sent on some unique missions.  NPCs would be sent to a realm when they die selected based on their alignment and race.  They would be revived as a specter there.  (Warewolves go to the hunting grounds, Nords (both genetic and cultural) go to Sovengard, etc).

      I already have Vortex overiding whatever conflicts come up so I don't need Wrye Bash to do that at all. All I need to do is a simple leveled list merge and I'm finding it difficult to follow the tutorials and guides I'm seeing on Youtube and other places. I can't find one tutorial that's specifically for just merging leveled lists. I wanted to be as safe as possible and just bash together the leveled lists and nothing else.
      I managed to get a bash patch up with a new game with the simplest tutorial I could find, but I feel like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. 
      I have one made now and it looks like it's working, but can anyone give me just simple step by step guide just a safe bashed patch for just leveled lists. I removed USSEP and anything vanilla from the patch. Was I supposed to just leave those things in? If so do I bash it again and continue playing or do I start a new game?
