    After putting it on hold for monthes I made the final touches. Includes basically all the changes I was going for, not too dramatic but noticible. Bugs will probably pop up tell me if anything doesn't work. Give feedback and sugguestions.

    FO2 Setting Improvement v3
    ===============================

    Trys to alter FO2 to come more in line with Fallout 1.

    Some files from patch000 merged into mod where able.

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

    ++++Installing:

    Extract using folder names to your Fallout 2 folder.

    Rename PATCH000.dat to something else or mod will not work.

    -----------------Current Changes:

    Replaces gold coins with beautiful, beautiful caps. [Cap treature is now useless paper money]

    Changes some silly Easter Eggs, now more useful.

    Real-world weapons renamed.

    Removed electric maze on oil rig.

    Replaces Temple of Trials with short path.

    Lots of new Arroyo dialogue, better reason for getting GECK.

    Altered Arroyo maps.

    San Fran is now a fight between two gangs, one for more order and power (The Dragon), the other for more freedom and power (The Tiger [formerly Lo Pan]). The two gangs are now more between order and chaos instead of good and evil.

    Shi have some less tech and less old Chinese culture. No more sterotype responses.

    Hubologists are changed. It is explained the Hub was a step towards cilivization and that is what they are about now: Advancing humanity beyond known limits by any means. They want to get into orbit because zero-g and space stuff is the thought to be the final key in their research. They have some dark secrets now (that are mostly left to the players to make the connections, they still don't pose much of a threat) and don't have two stupid porn stars as spokemen.

    Tanker monsters explained.

    BOS can no longer have the resources to issue power armor (BOS combat armor mite be worn now).Hopefully armor progression will no longer be metal or combat armor -> adv. power armor.

    New Reno has more of its shit together. Big Jesus family deals with trade goods and supplies water and power. Biship family deals in drug and entertainment (owns boxing, porn, etc..). Sal family has adv weapons (old guy is leader because he is smart about technology). That hick family supplies farm crops and alcohol. No longer prohibition-gangster/"OMG drugz and whorez" town.

    Some simple merchants that don't restock and can't be pickpocketed.

    Remove force fields and some advanced tech from NCR.

    Ants in broken hills caves reduced.

    New way to find sierra army base.

    New Navarro dialogue. Enclave in NAVARRO no longer hands out plasma rifle and Adv. Power Armor to new recruits (great policy guys). Now they hand out yellow key pass for uniform. Enclave in Navarro now have less adv. Power Armor to hand around to guards.

    No more super deathclaws. Never again hear this out of mouths of Fallout 1's savage killers:

    "I have spent many sleepless nights, deep in thought, pondering just such issues. I have finally come to the conclusion that the burdens and responsibilities associated with the gift of intelligence are countless. There are only two choices available to any thinking being. Either accept life as it comes and make the best of it for yourself and others, or simply cease to be. I have chosen to accept the challenges of life. If this makes me a threat to humankind, then I pity the small mind that finds it so..."

    The Enclave experiments were failures, no one can alter their animal instinct to survive. They won't attack you as long as you don't threaten their survival. Goris can still join.

    I am currently looking about for new games to test... and since I see this patch, well I couldn't help but wonder... And thanks to the Virtual Patcher, I can do all this and more. Recently tried out Silencer's Truck and B21 MOd... Sweet and disturbing.

    Well, Humanshield, I look forward to giving this one a test drive.

    Already did the Klamath/Arroyo Demo mod by Team-X

    Celes' 1.051 patch
    Seraph's 1.03

    and well going through more!!!

    So I assume that now no-one in Navarro will tell you to dress up if you have combat armour? Or do you still get the advanced PA?

    Whoa. No more big, fucking ants?

    Nonetheless, great stuff, certainly worth tying out. Good work!

    Uh, it's Lich's mod, mine is only the translation from Polish.

    It worked pretty fine for me until the game crashed a couple of times when I got to klamath. Later the problem didn't occur.

    Then further into missions random characters INSIDE towns would attack me. First it happened in Gecko, so it was a pain in the arse to sneak about and use combat mode to run past certain critters - ghouls just went berserk and attacked me, though I was overly friendly and idolized in Gecko, i fixed their damn powerplant and STILL some of 'em would attack me. In other towns too..
    what's with that ?

    Hm........ with Gecko it could be how some ghouls just hate normals (remember Necropolis ?)

    Since I havent been able to play any but the begining due to a bug I cant be certain.
