    Fallout 2: Weapons Redone

    v2.3c

    Thank you for going to the thread about F2WR! Seriously, it's cool.

    What does this mod do?

    ---------------

    Here's the essence of the mod: All weapons, combat styles and ammunition types should be fun to use, and combat should be very dangerous.
    This does not mean that all weapons are equal, or perfectly balanced, but rather that you can have fun with all of them, and that none of them are completely useless.
    It also means that battles, and especially gunfights, are now shorter and more tactical, since damage has been increased allround.
    Check the bullet points below, or the full list of details if you like to look at numbers.

    Armor-piercing ammo works:
    Use JHP ammo against Leather Armor and below, as it hits them for massive damage.
    Use FMJ and AP against Metal Armor and above, as JHP is not effective on them.

    Throwing is useful:
    Grenades and Molotovs are much more powerful and easier to hit with, and many more melee weapons can be thrown, including Crowbars and Combat Knives.
    Throwing ranges are longer (based on Strength), AP cost to throw is lower, and Melee Damage now applies to thrown Melee weapons.

    Melee weapons are more powerful:
    Most melee weapons do much more damage, based on whether they are blunt (high minimum damage) or sharp (high maximum).
    Your Melee Damage is now applied to the minimum damage as well as maximum. This means Goris becomes immensely more powerful.
    Some melee weapons like the Ripper have gory death animations if you hit hard enough!

    Laser weapons are very scary:
    They blow big, smoking holes in anything but Metal, Tesla and Power armor. Combat or Leather armor is not a good idea for storming the Salvatores.
    They also cost less AP to use, so the Salvatores get two shots a round with them.

    Unarmed is better:
    The AP costs for unarmed special attacks have been reduced to 4 for all punches and 5 for all kicks.
    These special attacks no longer have Knockback, so you can pummel thugs with Piercing Strikes without having to chase them across the screen.
    The regular attacks still have Knockback, so you can send a Fire Gecko flying with a good Haymaker.

    Big Guns are more convenient:
    The Bozar is now an enormous, single shot, armor-piercing Sniper rifle - just what Marcus always wanted.
    Flamers weigh less, have slightly longer range, do a bit more damage and are not affected by darkness.
    Burst weapons like the LSW and M60 now have a single shot mode.

    Weapons are less overpriced:
    Certain weapons like the Combat Shotgun have had their price reduced by more than 50%.
    Upgraded weapons have the same price as the regular counterparts.
    You will still get rich from arms dealing, but now it's not quite as obscene.

    Ammo is better (and more rare if you want):
    Inconvenient ammo types such as 7.62mm, .45 cal and Flamer Fuel have been made more convenient, either by damage, clip size or weight.
    You can optionally install files that cut ammo stacks in half or even 1/4th, so you will find much less ammo.

    Useless weapons are useful:
    The Sawed-Off Shotgun is now a very good weapon at short range, and looks like a Pistol when you fire it.
    All of the previously useless melee weapons are now viable instruments of pain, depending on personal preference.
    The 14mm Pistol is now one of the best pistols in the game.
    The 9mm Mauser is now on par with the 10mm Pistol, but is easier to hit with. It has been swapped with the .223 pistol, which means you will find only one .223 Pistol and many Mausers.

    Inconsistencies have been fixed:
    Putting a speedloader on the Magnum no longer increases its range from 15 to 20, now it always has a range of 20.
    The Flamer now does Fire damage like its improved version, and so does the Molotov Cocktail.
    Ghosts are no longer vulnerable to Plasma damage.
    The miniguns have a consistent bonus to hit, instead of a wildly varying one.
    The M60 now has a burst weapon sound.

    And much more!

    Installation

    ---------------

    The intended way to install F2WR is by using the supplied installer. First unzip the F2WR archive to wherever fallout2.exe is located, and then run F2WRInstaller.exe.

    If you can't use the installer (like, you're on a Mac or something... ugh...) then you can still do a manual install. Check the F2WRInstallation.txt file for how to do that.


    ---------------

    Full list of changes

    ---------------

    Armor

    ---------------

    Some armors have had their Normal damage resistance values changed, to make them more susceptible to AP ammo:

    Leather Jacket has a Normal DT of 1.

    Metal Armor has a Normal DR of 35 and a DT of 3.

    Combat Armor Mk.II and Brotherhood Armor have a Normal DR of 45.

    Power Armor has a Normal DR of 50 and a DT of 10.

    Hardened Power Armor has a Normal DR of 55 and a DT of 11.

    Advanced Power Armor has a Normal DR of 65 and a DT of 13.

    Advanced Power Armor Mk.II has a Normal DR of 70 and a DT of 14.

    Tesla Armor has a Normal DR/DT equal to Metal Armor Mk.II.


    All armors have been redone for more playable Laser resistance. I imagine DR represents how much of the laser that gets reflected, while DT is how much damage is absorbed while the laser burns through the material. Armors are listed by average effectiveness:

    Armor - Laser DR%/DT

    Leather Jacket - 00/01 (Black leather reflects nada and easily burns.)

    Leather Armor/Combat Leather Jacket - 00/02 (Still leather, but more of it.)

    Leather Armor Mk.II - 10/02 (Polished, so reflects a bit.)

    Combat Armor - 25/04 (Only the shiny bits reflect, but the material is full of heat dischargers and whatnots.)

    Bridgekeeper's Robes - 90/3 (Equal to Tesla Armor, but uses magic instead of technology!)

    Combat Armor Mk.II - 30/05 (More shiny bits and better dischargers.)

    Metal Armor - 40/03 (Metal reflects a good bit, but easily conducts heat.)

    Brotherhood Armor - 40/06 (Plenty of shinyness and even better dischargers.)

    Metal Armor Mk.II - 65/03 (Reflects a lot more because it is polished, but it is still just metal.)

    Power Armor - 70/07 (Lots of shiny plates that are hard to burn through, but also some areas that don't reflect.)

    H. Power Armor - 75/08 (A slightly more reflexive coating that also takes a while for the laser to burn away.)

    A. Power Armor - 60/20 (Less reflective than Power Armor, but is mostly made out of ceramics, which can stand enormous temperatures.)

    A. Power Armor Mk.II - 60/25 (Its materials can stand a bit more heat than regular Advanced Power Armor. Invulnerable to Laser Pistols, but not Magneto-Lasers.)

    Tesla Armor - 90/3 (Specialised energy absorbers give incredible reflection, but the material is still just metal. Not invulnerable to anything, but takes much less damage from Laser Rifles than Advanced Power Armor Mk.II.)


    A few armors have had their Explode damage resistance values tweaked a bit, as they were weird:

    Leather Armor has an Explode DT of 1 instead of 0.

    Tesla Armor has an Explode DR/DT equal to Metal Armor Mk.II.

    Combat Armor Mk.II and Brotherhood Armor have exchanged Explode DR/DT values, so that Brotherhood Armor is better than Combat Armor Mk.II.

    Power Armor and Hardened Power Armor have an Explode DT of 16 instead of 20.


    And finally:

    Tesla Armor has a Fire DR/DT equal to Metal Armor Mk.II.

    Metal Armor Mk. II no longer has any Electric resistance.

    Advanced Power Armors have a 45% resistance to EMP damage and Power Armors have a 75% resistance. Bring some EMP grenades to those Enclave patrols!

    Robes (regular, not Bridgekeeper) have a normal DR of 15, Explode DR of 10, Electrical DR of 20, an AC of 12 and no resistance to Laser damage.

    Bridgekeeper's Robes now have stats equal to Tesla Armor (that is, Metal Armor Mk. II with incredible energy resistances.)
    This makes it less of a cheat item (by the time you get it you likely do not have any Combat Armor) and fits the item description better.
    If you don't like this change, see F2WRInstallation.txt for info on how to install the default Bridgekeeper Robes instead.


    ---------------

    Ammo

    ---------------

    Half:
    The installer will give you three choices on installing ammo. The recommended choice will cut all ammo stacks in half (rounded down to the nearest whole number). As a result of this, ammo is now twice as heavy, twice as pricey and half as abundant at shopkeepers. Exceptions to the cut-in-half-rule are as following:
    MFC comes in packs of 35 instead of 50.
    SEC comes in packs of 30 instead of 40.
    7.62mm comes in clips of 20 instead of 35.
    Flamethrower Fuel comes in clips of 6 instead of 10.

    Fourth:
    Same as above, but these ammo stacks have been cut in FOUR.

    Normal:
    If you like the original Fallout 2 way of swimming in ammo, choose this.


    In addition to the optional amount reduction, the following changes have been made to the ammo types:

    All AP ammo has a damage modifier of 1/1, making it useful.
    Sharp ammo (.223 FMJ, .44 FMJ, 7.62mm, 4.7 Caseless) has an AC modifier of -10.
    Armor piercing ammo (10mmAP, 5mmAP, Needler AP, .44 Magnum FMJ) has an AC modifier of -20.
    Super-AP ammo (14mmAP, 2mmEC) has an AC modifier of -30.
    Flamer fuel and Improved Flamer fuel have AC modifiers of -10 and -20, due to their ability to burn and overheat armor.
    Rockets and AP Rockets have AC modifiers of -15 and -30, due to their ability to shatter and distort armor plates.
    All other ammo has an AC modifier of 0.

    Explosive Rockets have a DR modifier of 18 and a damage modifier of 7/4.
    Both types of Flamethrower Fuel have a weight of 6 instead of 10. Regular Flamethrower Fuel also has a DR modifier of 20 instead of 25.

    HN Needler ammo has been changed to Taser Cartridges (see the Pistols section for more info on the Taser).
    The regular ammo has no modifiers, the AP one has an AC mod of -10 and a damage mod of 5/4, meaning it does 25% more damage.
    Both ammo types now comes in clips of 20.

    10mmJHP and 5mmJHP have a damage modifier of 7/2 and a DR modifier of 48.
    5mmAP has a DR modifier of -40, 10mmAP has a DR modifier of -45, 14mmAP has a DR modifier of -50.
    14mmAP weighs 2 pounds instead of 1.

    .44JHP has a damage modifier of 7/2 and a DR modifier of 46.
    .44FMJ has a DR modifier of -30.

    The game's 20 rounds of 9mmBall have been replaced with .223 FMJ because of the Mauser/.223 pistol exchange. It has a damage modifier of 2/2 to distinguish it from the real .223FMJ, since the two types won't stack.
    9mm ammo now has a damage mod of 3/2, an AC modifier of -10 and a DR modifier of 15. It also comes in clips of 20 rounds, which have a base sell price of 100$.
    9mm ammo has been replaced with 9mm Ball. This all means that you can now buy plenty of 9mmBall in NCR, and that you will no longer find 9mm ammo as no weapons use it.

    7.62mm comes in clips of 35 instead of 20, to make it less scarce.
    7.62mm ammo has an AC/DR modifier of -10/-20, up from -5/-10.

    .45 caliber now comes in clips of 30 instead of a completely bloody useless 10. This means Eldridge now restocks 120 rounds of .45 caliber instead of 40, and that a fully loaded Tommy Gun weighs 9 pounds instead of 12.
    .45 caliber now has a DR mod of 52 and a damage mod of 6/2, meaning it's good against leather and unarmored, and poor against Metal and armored.

    4.7 Caseless ammo has had its DR modifier increased from -10 to -15.

    Gauss ammo (2mmEC) no longer increases the weapon's base damage, but its DR modifier has been increased to an incredible -100, which means it ignores DR completely.


    ---------------

    Big Guns

    ---------------

    The Minigun and the Avenger do one more point of maximum damage.

    Previously the Minigun and Avenger had a hit bonus of 8% * Perception, while the Vindicator had none. All the miniguns now have a +20% chance to hit.

    The Rocket Launcher does 45-100 damage.

    Regular Flamers accept only regular fuel, Improved Flamers accept only Improved fuel, which does more damage. They both do 50-90 damage and have a range of 6, and their chance to hit is not affected by darkness. The Improved Flamer is also loaded with Improved Fuel by default, which ironically makes it a bit harder to exploit Algernon for it.

    The M60 now has a single-shot mode that costs 5AP and has a range of 40. Its ammo capacity is increased to 60, and it fires 12 bullets per burst instead of 10.

    The Light Support Weapon now has a single-shot mode that costs 5AP and has a range of 45. It also has a 20% bonus to hit, due to its small scope.

    The Light Support Weapon and the M60 now sound like Assault Rifles, since the Minigun sound made their single shots fire in complete silence. Also, they now have Single Shot as their primary attack mode and Burst as their secondary.

    The Light Support Weapon has been swapped with the Bozar, meaning they have switched locations in game.

    The Bozar is now single shot only, uses 14mmAP ammo, has a range of 50 and sounds like a Sniper Rifle. It does 50-76 damage, has a capacity of 10 and behaves like a Scoped Hunting Rifle in that it is excellent on faraway enemies, but poor up close. Its AP cost is 6 for a single shot.

    The Minigun and the Avenger now come loaded with AP ammo by default. This affects enemy weapons in random encounters and what the weapons will be loaded with in shops, but not what ammo they will have in town maps. For example, Marcus will still have JHP in his minigun, but Super Mutants in random encounters now use AP.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    Flamer - 2000 - 2000

    Rocket Launcher - 2500 - 2300

    M60 - 2800 - 3500

    Minigun - 3400 - 3800

    Light Support Weapon - 4000 - 4750

    Bozar - 5000 - 5250

    Avenger - 5500 - 5500

    Vindicator - 14000 - 15250


    ---------------

    Energy

    ---------------

    The Solar Scorcher does Fire damage instead of Laser, and no longer has a 20% bonus to hit.

    The Plasma Pistol and its upgrade do 21-35 damage and cost 4AP to fire.

    The Plasma Rifle has the same stats as Turbo Plasma Rifle, but costs one more AP to fire.

    The Laser Rifle and its upgrade have a ST requirement of 5.

    The Pulse Pistol has a range of 18 up from 15.

    The Laser Pistol and its upgrade do 15-25 damage and cost 4AP to fire.

    The Laser Rifle and its upgrade do 30-60 damage.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    Laser Pistol - 1400 - 1400

    Plasma Pistol - 1800 - 2750

    Laser Rifle - 4500 - 5000

    Plasma Rifle - 5000 - 4000

    Pulse Pistol - 7000 - 12500

    Gatling Laser - 7500 - 7500

    Pulse Rifle - 10000 - 17500


    ---------------

    Grenades

    ---------------

    All grenades now have a +20% bonus to hit. The Holy Hand Grenade has +40%, of course.

    All grenades except Molotov Cocktails weigh 2 pounds instead of 1.

    Molotov Cocktails do 35-50 damage, Grenades do 50-80 damage and Plasma Grenades do a mouthwatering 70-90 damage.

    Molotov Cocktails do Fire damage instead of Explosive, which means they work better on armored enemies and extremely well on Aliens.

    All grenades except Molotov Cocktails have a max range of 30 hexes, but you need a ST of 10 to throw that far. Molotovs have a max range of 24, which you can achieve with ST8.


    You can now go tossing armed explosives around, like the omnicidal maniac you are. Just put the ticking bomb in your weapon slot and chuck it at someone, preferably before it goes off in your hand. Both Dynamite and Plastic Explosives cost 4AP to throw and have a range of 18 hexes (Strength 6). They do no damage when they hit, but it is possible to knock someone unconscious with a good aimed throw to the head. The bomb will then explode wherever it landed when the timer runs out, for the usual amount of damage. Be aware that since it is now technically a weapon, unarmed enemies might consider picking up the bomb before it explodes and throw it back at you!

    Plastic Explosives and Dynamite now do 20 more points of damage when they explode.


    ---------------

    Melee

    ---------------

    All low-tech weapons have been redone for consistency, more of them are throwable and most of them do more damage:

    Weapon / Min-Max dmg / AP cost (thrown) / Perk

    Blunt:

    Rock / 3-4 / 3(2) / none

    Lit Flare / 2-9 / (2)3 / Does Fire damage

    Brass Knuckles / 6-6 / 3 / none

    Wrench / 7-9 / 3(3) / none

    Club / 8-8 / 3(3) / none

    Crowbar / 12-15 / 4(4) / none

    Uranium Ore / 14-16 / 4(3) / Requires Strength 6
    Gold Nugget / 14-16 / 4(3) / Requires Strength 6

    Sledgehammer / 15-17 / 5 / Knockback, requires Strength 6

    Power Fist / 18-25 / 3 / no longer Penetrate

    Refined Uranium Ore / 20-23 / 4 / Knockback, requires Strength 7

    Louisville Slugger / 25-32 / 4 / Knockback

    Mega Power Fist / 26-40 / 3 / no longer Penetrate

    Super Sledge / 35-50 / 5 / Knockback, requires Strength 6


    Sharp:

    Sharpened Pole / 3-8 / 4(4) / none

    Knife / 3-8 / 3(3) / none

    Spiked Knuckles / 6-10 / 3 / none

    Combat Knife / 6-12 / 3(3) / none

    Switchblade / 8-9 / 3 / none

    Shiv / 7-10 / 3 / none

    Throwing Knife / 10-17 / (3) / Penetrate

    Spear / 10-20 / 5(5) / none

    Sharpened Spear / 10-20 / 5(5) / Penetrate

    Little Jesus / 8-14 / 2 / Penetrate

    Wakizashi Blade / 12-28 / 3 / Penetrate

    Ripper / 17-36 / 4 / Does Laser damage


    The Super Sledge now requires a ST of 6 to wield properly.

    Throwing Knives have a base price of 75 instead of 100.

    The Ripper technically does Laser damage, which means it's extremely effective on Leather and Combat armor, but much less so against Metal and Power armor.

    Cattle Prods will now always knock an enemy unconscious on a critical hit, in addition to other critical effects. They no longer have a +20% chance to hit.

    Unlit flares now cost 2 AP to throw.

    Yakuza in worldmap encounters have a throwing skill of 60% instead of 0%, so they may now hit you with their knives.


    The thrown low-tech weapons' max ranges and the ST required to achieve such a range are the following:

    Spears - range 27, ST 9

    Throwing Knives, Rocks - range 24, ST 8

    Combat Knives/Wakizashi Blades - range 21, ST 7

    Knives/Sharpened Poles/Uranium Ore/Gold Nugget - range 18, ST 6

    Crowbars/Wrenches/Clubs/Flares - range 15, ST 5

    The actual ranges depend on character ST, with a ST of 5, the weapons above would all have a range of 15.


    The Melee Damage stat is now also applied to Minimum damage like it says in the in-game descriptions, not just Maximum.
    It is also applied to Thrown melee weapons, such as Spears and Throwing Knives.
    (The inventory screen will still show the default damage, but the damage calculation now takes these changes into account.)
    This change has a noticeable impact on all critters that rely on melee damage (such as deathclaws, golden geckos and Yakuza), not just you.

    The AP costs for unarmed special attacks have been reduced to 4 for all punches and 5 for all kicks.
    These special attacks no longer knock back an enemy. The regular kicks and punches still do have knockback.

    Certain melee weapons now have critical death animations!
    If someone is killed with a hit that did more than a certain amount of damage (or you have Bloody Mess), you will see their death in gruesome detail:
    Lit Flare (15 damage or more): Extra crispy.
    Wakizashi Blade (40 or more): Sliced in half
    Ripper(45 or more): Sliced in half
    Deathclaw attack(50 or more): Sliced in half.
    (Super) Cattle Prod (40 or more): Electrocuted.
    (Mega) Power Fist (50 or more): Blowing hole in torso.
    Super Sledge (75 or more): Bloodsplosion!


    ---------------

    Pistols

    ---------------

    The 14mm Pistol does 15-21 damage and has a range of 30.

    The Desert Eagle and the .44 Magnum do 12-17 and 13-19 damage, respectively.
    Putting a speed loader on the .44 Magnum no longer increases its range from 15 to 20. Instead, both versions of the weapon have a range of 20.
    The Desert Eagle and its upgrade have a range of 27.
    Putting an extended magazine on the Desert Eagle now yields a capacity of 12 instead of 20.

    The Needler Pistol has been renamed to Taser. It does 18-24 points of Electrical damage, has a range of 15 and costs $1600.
    Scoring a critical hit with the Taser will always knock an enemy unconscious, in addition to the usual critical effects.

    The 10mm Pistol does 7-13 damage and has an AP cost of 4.

    The 9mm Mauser now has a damage of 10-16 and a range of 25. It still has an accuracy bonus of 20% and an AP cost of 4.
    The .223 Pistol has been swapped with the Mauser, meaning you will only find one .223 and many Mausers.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    10mm Pistol - 300 - 250

    9mm Mauser - 650 - 1500

    Desert Eagle - 700 - 800

    .44 Magnum - 800 - 600

    14mm Pistol - 950 - 1100

    Taser (Needler Pistol) - 1600 - 2200

    .223 Pistol - 3500 - 3500

    Gauss Pistol - 4750 - 5250


    ---------------

    Rifles

    ---------------

    The Assault Rifle and its upgrade no longer have a bonus to hit, and their single shot range is reduced to 32. They have a burst range of 27.
    The Assault Rifle and its upgrade fire 9 bullets per burst instead of 8.
    The Assault Rifle now has a capacity of 27, which gives three bursts per reload. Putting an extended magazine on it yields a capacity of 90 and ten bursts per reload.

    The FN FAL and its upgrade fires 11 bullets per burst.
    Putting a nightvision scope on it increases its range to 38 single shot, 33 burst.
    It has a capacity of 33, with or without a night sight.

    The FN FAL HPFA does 14-22 damage up from 11-22, has a range of 40 single shot and 35 burst, and a +20% bonus to hit.
    It fires 18 bullets per burst, and has a capacity of 36.

    The Sniper Rifle does 17-34 damage.

    The Hunting Rifle and its upgrade do 10-20 damage.
    The Hunting Rifle has a range of 35, the Scoped one has a range of 40.

    Assault Rifles and the XL70E3 now come loaded with AP ammo by default. This affects enemy weapons in random encounters and what the weapons will be loaded with in shops, but not what ammo they will have in town maps. For example, the Raiders in their base will still use JHP in their Assault Rifles, but in worldmap encounters they now use AP.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    Hunting Rifle - 900 - 1000

    Assault Rifle - 1150 - 1300

    FN FAL - 1350 - 1500

    Sniper Rifle - 1500 - 2200

    FN FAL HPFA - 2500 - 2250

    Gauss Rifle - 8000 - 8250


    ---------------

    Shotguns

    ---------------

    The Combat Shotgun, H&K CAWS and Pancor Jackhammer now have burst ranges of 18, 23 and 26.
    The Combat Shotgun, H&K CAWS and Pancor Jackhammer now fire 4, 6 and 8 shots per burst.

    The HK CAWS and Pancor Jackhammer now carry 12 and 16 shots, and weigh 12 and 15 pounds.

    The Shotgun does 15-22 damage and its range is now 18.

    The Sawnoff Shotgun does 19-24 damage, uses the Pistol animation, has a 20% hit bonus like all other shotguns and its range is now 9.

    The Combat Shotgun's single shot range is now 20.

    The HK CAWS now does 16-27 damage.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    Shotgun - 750 - 800

    Sawnoff Shotgun - 750 - 800

    Combat Shotgun - 1200 - 2750

    HK CAWS - 1750 - 4750

    Pancor Jackhammer - 2500 - 5500


    ---------------

    SMGs

    ---------------

    The 10mmSMG does 7-13 damage.

    The HK P90c does 9-14 damage.

    The Tommy Gun does 8-18 damage instead of 3-20, as I cannot imagine how a firearm could do 3 damage unless it just clipped your toenail or something. It also has a burst range of 25 instead of 16.

    The HK G11E now has the Nightvision ability, like the upgraded FN FAL.


    Most base weapon values have been redone. Upgraded weapons go for the same as regular ones.

    Weapon - New Price - Default Price

    10mm SMG - 950 - 1000

    Tommy Gun - 1000 - 1200

    Grease Gun - 1100 - 1750

    HK P90c - 2500 - 2500

    HK G11 - 3000 - 6500

    HK G11E - 4000 - 8000


    ---------------

    Random Encounters

    ---------------

    F2WR contains a set of changes to the random encounters, to make ammo more scarce and adjust when certain weapons become available. The installer will ask you if you want to install these or not.
    (The installer will look through your Worldmap.txt file, and change those encounters that are specified by F2WR, if it finds them. It will leave the rest of the encounters alone. This keeps F2WR compatible with mods that add new encounters, as those encounters will not be changed.)

    The encounter changes are as follows:

    Some early encounters (Den, Modoc) had a condition on them that the player must be a certain level in order to see all the enemies. You will now see all enemies in those encounters at any level.

    Enemies no longer carry any spare ammo, you will have to loot what's left in their weapon. This mostly affects people with shotguns, and a few caravan guards.

    Enemies with a (Sawed-Off) Shotgun have a melee or thrown weapon as a sidearm, because they run out of ammo after just two shots.

    Molotov Cocktails can now be found on Robbers, Highwaymen and Vault City Slavers, with increasing likelyhood for each of those groups. Bootleggers around Redding and Moonshiners around Modoc also have a handful of Molotovs to steal or buy, since they brew their own alcohol.

    Vault City patrols and NCR Rangers now have Grenades. Vault City Slavers, Broken Hills Rogues and NCR Marauders may also have them.

    Vault City patrols have Assault Rifles, FN FALs, Tasers and Desert Eagles, instead of only Assault Rifles and Desert Eagles.

    Prospectors and Bootleggers around Redding have Sawed-Off Shotguns instead of Pancor Jackhammer.

    Claim Jumpers around Redding have .44 Magnum instead of Taser.

    Homesteaders around Redding have Scoped Hunting Rifle instead of HK G11.

    Bishop's Raiders (on the worldmap, not in their base) have Assault Rifles, HK CAWS, 14mmPistols and Grease Guns, instead of Assault Rifles, Combat Shotguns, Grease Guns and more Grease Guns.

    Rogues around Broken Hills have Sniper Rifles instead of Pancor Jackhammer, and 9mm Mauser instead of Shotgun.

    The Broken Hills Unity patrols have a 30% chance of spawning a mutant who wields Refined Uranium Ore as a weapon.

    New Reno Mobsters have Sawed-off Shotguns and Grease Guns instead of Sniper Rifles, and a 30% chance of spawning an extra mobster with an M60.

    NCR Rangers have Pancor Jackhammer instead of HK CAWS, Sniper Rifle instead of Grease Gun, FN FAL instead of Combat Shotgun, Taser instead of Flamer and a 30% chance of spawning an extra Ranger with an XL70E3.

    NCR Marauders have Ripper instead of Combat Knife, and HK G11 instead of Sharpened Spear.

    One of the docile San Francisco Hubologists now wields a Light Support Weapon, because all of her Plasma Grenades have been stolen.

    One of the hostile San Francisco Mercenaries now has twice as many Plasma Grenades as before.

    San Francisco Mercenaries wield XL70E3 instead of Tasers and have a 30% chance of spawning an extra mercenary with an FN FAL HPFA.

    San Francisco Press Gangs have a 30% chance of spawning an extra gang member with a Super Sledge.

    Enclave Patrols use upgraded Plasma Pistols instead of normal ones. They now also have Magneto-Laser pistols, and they no longer carry any Money or Combat Knives.


    ---------------

    Psycho

    ---------------

    Psycho gives you +50 DR in the unmodded game, which means you will become invulnerable to JHP ammo with F2WR installed. Worse, if an enemy takes a dose of it, all of his companions will become unstoppable death tanks. The installer will let you choose to modify Psycho so that it gives +40 AC instead. This means you will be much harder to hit, but still take normal damage if you do get hit.


    ---------------

    Sounds

    ---------------

    The installer will let you choose to install the Fallout 1 sounds for big pistols, a very loud BOOM. These are identical to the ones from Killap's RP. Some enjoy them, some don't.


    ---------------

    Item descriptions

    ---------------

    The Pulse Rifle, Super Sledge and Laser Rifle had wrong ST requirements displayed in the item info (the correct one was used by the game, though).
    They now display the correct ST requirements, and so do the Rock/Ore weapons.
    A few other weapons have had their item descriptions modified to fit their new behavior in F2WR.

    (The installer does this by modifying the lines of those items in pro_item.msg, but leaves the rest of the file as it is.
    This should therefore be compatible with any other mods you might be running that add new items or modify item descriptions.)

    The installer will not alter the item descriptions if it detects that you have a non-English version of the game.


    ---------------

    Sfall

    ---------------

    A few of the changes in F2WR require sfall v3.4-v3.6, or higher.
    For good measure F2WR comes with sfall v3.6 bundled, and the installer will ask you if you want to install it.
    You can choose to install 3.6 and the changes that depend on it, or not to install 3.6 but still install the changes, or neither.

    The installer won't overwrite your ddraw.ini unless you explicitly tell it to (it will only recommend doing so if it detects that you don't have sfall installed at all). However, it will set certain properties in the .ini, and add them if it doesn't find them there. You might want to check the ddraw.ini yourself after installing the mod:
    CorpseLineOfFireFix=1
    ExplosionsEmitLight=1
    CheckWeaponAmmoCost=1
    PlayIdleAnimOnReload=1
    RemoveCriticalTimelimits=1

    Note that the sfall version that comes with Killap's RP is 3.3, and the one in the Megamod is ancient.
    To my knowledge there is no harm in upgrading to sfall 3.6 with the RP or Megamod installed, as long as you leave the ddraw.ini intact.


    ---------------

    What else

    ---------------

    F2WR is backwards compatible, which means that any version of F2WR can be installed over an older version. Before you do this, make sure to revert your Worldmap.txt to the one you had before installing F2WR!

    F2WR is also compatible with old save games, as its changes apply themselves whenever you load up the game. Thus there is no need to start a new game.

    F2WR is fully compatible with Killap's Unofficial Patch and his Restoration Project, because it uses his item protos. The installer will switch off any changes you've made to the Damage Formula, as F2WR uses the default Fallout 2 damage system.

    F2WR is also compatible with the MIB88 Megamod, though I personally have not tested this. A big bonus to those who run it with the Megamod is the Megamod's included Mr. Fixit, which allows the player to craft Molotov Cocktails, among other things. Since F2WR makes Molotovs quite useful, the two mods fill each other out perfectly.

    As for Shattered Destiny, and every other Fallout 2 mod: I don't know. If the other mod edits any armor, my changes will overwrite them, as I have redone laser resistance of all armors. If it edits any ammo, my changes might overwrite them, as I have edited mostly all ammos. The same goes for weapons.

    If you are sure that the changes in F2WR will overwrite the ones in a mod that you really like, then you can do a manual install instead of using the installer. This will let you decide which files get overwritten, and which do not. Check the F2WRInstallation.txt file for how to do that.


    ---------------

    Coming?

    ---------------

    AC rebalance of armors, so that Leather Jackets give more AC than Power Armor.

    Optional "Badass" maps, where enemies carry more AP ammo and more balanced weapons.

    Quite so. At least they fit in with other firearms' stats.

    Also, why did you reduce the Sniper Rifle's range? It's a SNIPER rifle, not a regular one.

    I reduced its range so it would be shorter than the Bozar's. I'm about to swap their AP costs and increase Bozar damage a bit, too. We'll see in the next version.

    It doesn't make a speck of sense. Leave the ranges alone, or, better, make them equal.

    Remember, the current longest-range kill wasn't done with a Barrett, but with this, a regular sniper rifle.

    But the Bozar is a... Bozar. Not a Barrett. It doesn't even have support legs like a Barrett. And Fallout 2 is a game, not a shooting range. The Bozar is bigger and looks much more awesome than the Sniper Rifle, which is why it needs to have much more awesome stats. Pure game logic.

    No, that's retardese, Bethesda's mother tongue.

    Fallout IS based on 1950s pulp sci-fi, but even that was grounded in reality. And Bozar IS a Barrett. Just because it doesn't have a bipod doesn't mean it isn't one.

    Hey mr magnus

    Thrown: I like what you're trying to do with grenades and throwing knives. Thrown weapons are so poor it'd be hard to go wrong revamping them.

    Laser weapons: I appreciate your changes for laser weapons, but be careful. I would say the problem with laser weapons lies not in the weapon stats themselves, but in the fact that almost every kind of armour (not just metal) has a huge DR against laser.

    Bozar: Along with most comments, i like the idea of a big gun sniper rifle (without burst) but again, along with other comments IMO game balance should come above ALL else, including realism, canon, etc.

    Keep up the good work.

    I like any ideas for weapons and damage, so good work Magnus! (especially if it might work with killap's RP mod) It's also nice to see someone working on other weapons than just firearms.

    Have you thought to do something with the pitiful 14mm handgun? That would be like a .55 or .60 caliber, which should cause a whole lot more damage than it does in the game. It's supposed to be a very well-crafted weapon, the ammo is also quite rare compared to .223 (for my favorite pistol!)

    I agree with Josan12 and what Mikael Grizzly wrote (In your other thread also). As your first post stated, the Bozar should be single shot and take a lot of action points to fire. I think it is mostly agreed that it wasn't meant to have burst fire. It's still damned lethal even without changing anything. I got caught trying to steal one from one of Buster's guards and hit with a single shot for 400+ damage! (seriously!)

    A 'Mad Max' sawed-off shotgun pistol would be nice as well, with a high strength required to handle the kick without breaking your wrist.

    Laser Rifle and its upgrade do 34-76 damage.
    WANT.

    Question: Is this mod compatible with the Restoration Patch?

    And also:

    Did you lower laser DR of some armors?

    @Mikael Grizzly,
    What did you do with the 14mm pistol? I read this in the other thread. (check down a bit, Slaughter)

    I would like to try your mod, Mr Grizzly. Where can I find it? Glovs ammo damage mod works perfectly with Restoration Project.

    I know nothing of modding, but if you are not screwing with the files killap is in making his mod, then it should work (?)

    Exactly. Even the metal armors are too high - the unpolished surface does not warrant a 75% DR. Mark II is 80%, and tesla armor is 90% with a DT of 19(! - plasma and electrical DTs are 10). Power Armor is reasonably reflective, but APA is supposedly made of ceramics, so neither it nor combat armors deserve an unusually high laser resistance.

    Edit: The 5% DR bonus per boxing match doesn't make sense either, and really throws things out of balance for the player.

    Hello everyone

    I'm back. Thanks everyone for all the kind and constructive replies, I will see what I can do with them.

    First of all, let me express my sorryness for the mod not having been available to the public yet. The guys in the Vault here seem to have a lot on their hands, which is why I've chosen to upload v0.3 at FileFront:

    http://files.filefront.com/MWRv03zip.../fileinfo.html

    Put that in your browser and smoke it. The mod comes prepacked in modular form, with write-protected files and a highly well-written and informative readme that you MUST read!

    For everybody who wonders, this mod will always and always always (always) be compatible with everything of Killap's, since I'm using his weapon files (and so are you if you have any of his mods). Anyway, he mostly edits items, not weapons.

    To avoid stepping on everybody's toes with my personal opinion of how the Bozar should be, the Bozar will be a 6 AP costing, highly damaging sniper in the next version. Vox populi, vox dei.

    I will look into the laser armor stuff in the next version. It's probably not hard to change, so expect results!

    I will not be adding any new weapons.

    So, Magnus, this is compatible with Killap's patch and Restoration Patch? Great! Can I make a topic in a Brazilian forum about this patch? With proper credits to you, of course.

    You are right. I think 75% and 80% is just too much. Ok, I know this is THE GREAT ADVANTAGE of that armor compared to the other armors. But it's too unbalanced. It's just a bunch of (un)polished junk crobbled together or a well-crafter armor, if it's MKII. Why Metal would repeal lasers, anyway? Industrial grade lasers can cut though metal like a knife though butter.

    I think it would be more fitting for it to be like this:

    Leather Jacket and Leather Armor should have no laser resistance. I mean, I doubt anyone who made them ever though "about then damn lasers."

    Metal Armor:

    Normal: As it is.
    Laser: 60% resistance, DT should be reduced.
    Plasma: Should kill you.
    Pulse: Should fry you (I mean, it's METAL!)
    Explosions and Flames: The same as it is.

    Metal Armor MKII:

    Normal: As it is.
    Laser: 70% resistance, DT should be reduced, but higher than Metal Armor.
    Plasma: Should kill you.
    Pulse: Fried meat.
    Explosions and Flames: As standard resistance.

    Combat Armor should stay the same. Power Armor and Advanced Power Armor could get some reduced resistance against lasers, though.

    I believe the AP ammo fixes included in Killap's restoration project (scroll down in the ddraw.ini file to activate it) should make the 14mm more efficient, but I haven't tested it myself.

    In general, I'm going to sift through every single weapon in the game, sort out the ones I don't like and make them right. I've already done this with all of the grenades, and the laser weapons. Next up for the scalpel are weapons like the Sawnoff Shotgun, the 14mm pistol, Switchblade and so on.

    You are of course welcome to spread the word about this mod!
    Make sure to include the download link found in the top post. Perhaps also a link to this thread so people can post here, since I don't speak Portuguese and won't be checking the Brazilian thread.
    (It would also be extremely nice of you if you wanted to translate the readme?)

    I will be very careful about editing the armours. I think I'll stick with reducing laser resistance for now. The shiny armours will have better resistance than the unshiny ones, since they reflect light more efficiently.

    If I manage to edit the laser resistant armours rightly, I will reduce, perhaps even remove the huge bonuses I've given the laser weapons.
    My mod Fallout 2: Weapons Redone makes AP ammo, Laser Pistols, Sledgehammers, Grenades, Bozars and Assault Rifles work like they should, and is compatible with both Killap's RP v2.3.3 and the MIB88 Megamod!

    Are you editing critter armor stats in Fallout 2? Use The Armorizer!

    And hey, I've made a working vehicle for New Vegas - a Hoverboard!

    You are right. I think 75% and 80% is just too much. Ok, I know this is THE GREAT ADVANTAGE of that armor compared to the other armors. But it's too unbalanced. It's just a bunch of (un)polished junk crobbled together or a well-crafter armor, if it's MKII. Why Metal would repeal lasers, anyway? Industrial grade lasers can cut though metal like a knife though butter.
    You are of course welcome to spread the word about this mod!
    Make sure to include the download link found in the top post. Perhaps also a link to this thread so people can post here, since I don't speak Portuguese and won't be checking the Brazilian thread.
    (It would also be extremely nice of you if you wanted to translate the readme?)

    Thank you! I'll post there right now! I'll test this mod as soon as my game is done!


    EDIT:
    Can I make two sugestions?

    I remember, from Per's walkthough, that some weapons have "perks." I think the Super Sledge Hammer has a Knockback perk. From what I remember, I think the Timeslip fixes allowed to put the Knockback perk into other weapons. You could put that perk in the Shotguns. If there is a Knockdown (not knockback, but knockdown) perk for weapons (there is? I can't remember), you could add it to, say, crowbars and Cattle Prods. WHACK WHACK WHACK at the back of the head. Now that would be helluva funny

    You could add new ammo to the game? Like, say, Flechette and Slug ammo for Shotguns. They had these in FOT, although FOT's bursting shotguns were pretty overpowered. And by "overpowered", I mean a Pancor Jackhammer loaded with slug ammo making mincemeat of people in Powered Armor. I am not making this up They had EMP ammunition, too, but I doubt you can make these, saddly.

    You know what is my beef with laser weapons? The Salvatores. They should've been the toughest fight in New Reno, but even the Wrights can be more threatening than them. It's weird. Half the city scares you about these laser guns, making you fear the Salvatores and wish for a laser gun yourself.

    The situation is like this:

    *Player Character (PC) arrives in New Reno*

    Jules: Laser Weapons are dangerous, and they killed a lot of Mordinos and Bishops without batting a eyelid and blábláblá and more scaremongering.

    PC: Oh god... better not mess with them. I think I'll go and try to work for them, who knows, maybe I can get one of those pretties myself.

    Orville Wright: One man armed with these can kill my whole familiy without batting a eyelid. You must go to Sierra Army Deppot.

    PC: Holy Sh- Ok, I'll go there.

    Father Tully: They're weapons of the devil!

    PC: Man, they must be really hardcore.

    Senior Mordino: You must kill Boss Salvatore.

    PC: Ok, here I go.

    *PC goes to the Salvatore Bar, along his NPCs and starts shooting around*

    Now, it diverges:

    ----------------HOW IT SHOULD'VE HAPPENED-------------

    *PC starts making a ruckus along his partners*

    Guard 1: Hey man, that guy is doing a ruckus all over the place!

    Guard 2: Just shoot the fucker, man.

    Guard 1: Lemme get my laser gun... cap those fools! Bet 500 bucks I can break your record.

    Guard 2: Nah, can't do that, man. Prepare my money.

    Guard 1 pulls his laser pistol and zaps everyone making a ruckus in the bar, tearing the PC and his friends to pieces and sending 'em for a one-way trip to Golgotha.

    Guard 2: You killed them in 00:00:27... Damn, you broke my fucking record!

    Guard 1: Cough up the caps!

    Guard 2: Goddman... not possible...

    Guard 1: Don't be a sore loser.

    -----------------------HOW IT HAPPENED---------------------

    *PC starts making a ruckus along his partners*

    Guard 1: Hey man, that guy is doing a ruckus all over the place!

    Guard 2: Just shoot the fucker, man.

    Guard 1: Lemme get my laser gun... cap those fools! Bet 500 bucks I can break your record.

    Guard 2: Nah, can't do that, man. Prepare my money.

    Guard 1 pulls his laser pistol and zaps everyone making a ruckus in the bar... to no effect.

    PC: Hahahahhaha, your pitiful weapons have no effect on my shiny metal arm-OOOOWWW!!!!!

    PC bleeds to death after being shot in the head by the Almighty Barman.

    I am not making this up.
    Bring your daughter... to the Slaughter!
