    The day of release has finally come. It has taken me about almost 2 years to get this complete and yet I still believe I can find stuff to add. The purpose of this mod is to add back into the game all the content that was originally planned by the Fallout 2 devs. You will find about 6 new locations (some quite large, other smaller) as well as a few new areas to old locations. In addition, almost every town in the game has new content whether it is new characters, quests, or items. Playing this will definitely be a new experience. Completion of this expansion would also not have been possible without several individuals who I thank in the readme of this mod. Big thanks to all of you!

    I am sure there are bugs in this mod - I'm not perfect and most coding occurred late at night. Still, I think it is pretty well tested and I even had the help of two beta testers to sift through the nasty ones. If you come across any issues, please post them in this thread.

    There WILL be another release of this mod since I still plan on including the Shi submarine but am waiting on content.

    Below is a list of all that has been added. Some of it might be considered a spoiler, so don't read too in depth if you like to make discoveries on your own. I hope everyone enjoys! it is my hope that this mod will allow everyone to squeeze a little more goodness out of Fallout 2.

    *Note: download is about 21 MB for the installer and 26 MB for the manual install.*
    *Note2: The installer version contains some extra features that are not found in the manual version of the game. You may pick and choose which features you want.*

    The expansion includes my unofficial patch, so there is no need to install it separately.

    I've never played a Fallout mod. (Well, except for my rockmod.) This could very well be the first.

    Does this version include travel slowdown? If so, can it be turned off with hexediting or something?

    Read the readme Per 8-)

    But yes, it is indeed possible to turn off the map slow down.

    Oh, and in addition to bug reports, I would love to hear general feedback. I am willing to make changes (skill check changes, quest redoes, etc) if one suggests. This is my first real mod that involves self made content. (well, other than my patch)

    Very good work! :clap:

    One little issue found during quick Arroy walkthrough...

    Little geckos in hunting grounds won't turn hostile even if you're next to them.

    Actually, according to the script this was how it originally was. Only the bigger geckos attack when they see you. The small ones only attack when provoked.

    Oh, and for future bug reports. Please post how you installed the game and if you used the installer, what extra features you chose to install.

    Ya !


    I have some questions...

    What's the difference between this one and the Fallout 2 Patch V1.02.22?

    For example... Does this Expansion have all the aspects of the F2 Patch V1.02.22?

    Thanks !

    Hey I'm a Fallout 2 Modder too... but I don't know anything... Most of the things I picked them from other Mod's...

    Hehehehehe !!!

    I'll gonna wait the final version ! The submarine and other things.

    And more... I'll gonna stop all my work here !

    Just keep the frames and protos of some items...

    Well weapons like M4A1 and other things... Interested?

    What about a huge Mod ?

    Fallout 2 Expansion made from fallout players to other players !


    Thanks a lot !
