    I have been trying to figure out how to edit the amount of space in my car trunk (in fallout), but I just don't know how. The notepad ++ plugin is hard to understand.

    If I have posted this in the wrong thread please let me know, as this is my first post and I am still figuring this website out.

    What notepad++ plugin?

    Use the Proto Manager, open the car trunk proto file and change the max size setting to the desired value.

    A plugin called Hex Editor which allows me to view files in hexdecimal
    And I will use Proto manager, thank you.

    Hmm, it says it is either a corrupted or unsupported file format. It does say it has an attribute of 'R/O', which I have no idea what that means.

    R/O is Read Only. That shouldn't bother you.

    I'm guessing you corrupted your file when fiddling with Notepad++. Delete it and let the Tool extract the proto by itself from the Master.dat file.
