    That's my major annoyance and would be a huge quality of life improvement if it was changed.

    That argument falls flat on its face when you see that they had Ian tag big guns and Katja - energy weapons, a clear intent they were meant to be used.

    As with most games, it is far more likely the devs simply ran out of time to add the frames for the models.

    Party members don't have tag skills. They just have higher skills in some areas for whatever reason.

    Katja can use laser / plasma pistol. I've added this in ettu, it's not a vanilla thing, btw.

    If you want Ian to use big guns, you have to create the missing graphics, it's as simple as that.

    ...thats what tag skills are. And yes, they do have them.
    From the wiki:

    No it's not. You can tag a skill and still have others be higher.

    NPCs do not have tag skills.

    Energy weapons are also laser, plasma, and pulse pistol, which Katja can use (in ettu), as I mentioned above.

    Wiki has lots of wrong information, especially about Fo1/2. Don't quote it in a discussion, look up the original files.

    No idea. If it works in other mods that use sfall, then it should work here too. Don't think I ever saw that one, though.

    WTF @agris
    You tryin' to troll poor 'ol Lexx here?
    You speak of a black background for a char sheet ingame, while as a proof of this happening (and it never was the case), You show Character creation/adaptation screen, a.k.a the one you get along the way, when you press "New Game". This always had black background. Character sheet ingame however always had game background behind it.

    It's easily distinguishable since you have the choose triat window instead of three tabs: "Perks" , "Karma" , "Kills" , also the "+" and "-" buttons next to each special proove my point.

    oh no, i'm not. that's just a mistake, i saw it posted in another thread and didn't look closely - just focused on the black background.

    it may be that my memory is just wrong on this, or it was a specific version of crafty's sfall that had it that is superseded in my own install of F1

    • Tweaked: Turbo Plasma Rifle now uses 2 energy ammo on every attack.

    • Tweaked: The 500 days Vault 13 invasion timer is now disabled by default.
    • Tweaked: The Fo2 .44 Magnum Revolver now needs 3 AP to reload instead of 2, to differentiate it more from the Desert Eagle.
    • Tweaked: The Hub Old Town Captors will only attack the player if he actually enters the house. No more unwanted attack from walking past the door that was just opened by a stupid child.
    • Tweaked: The garrison troops in the Master's Lair have a respawn delay now.
    • Tweaked: The super mutant conversation in the Master's Lair now only happens if the player has visited the Lair at least once before.
    • Tweaked: Vault 15 entrance hi-res patch screen edges.
    • Tweaked: Warning messages will now shut down the game completely, and not just send players back to the main menu.

    Find the latest release here.

    Sitting on this update for a while already, decided to release it now else I'm going to sit on it even longer.
    Not much to say this time. The footprints mod is in a state now where it isn't just an experiment, so I've decided to put it directly into the release build. Also there's a new optional "Vault 15 Rework" mini-mod, which merges the Fallout 2 V15 style into the original Fo1 style V15 location. It's pretty much just a map replacer and does nothing more than looking slightly different. Keep in mind that Fo2 is set 80 years after the first game, so even though it's in similar style now, it's not a 1:1 Fo2 map recreation (it wouldn't make any sense).

    Other than that, lots of fixes, some balance tweaks, and more toggle options in the fo1_settings.ini file so that you have more freedom in deciding what you want to have in your game.

    It's advised to start a new game. Actually I'm not sure if old savegames are loading anyways with this update. While at it, best to delete your existing files and do a clean install with this version.

    Also, keep in mind that mods-handling has been changed in latest Sfall versions. Check the \mods\mods_order.txt file to enable/disable mods.

    What are satellite quest locations?

    Quite simple really..

    there are about 3 quests that send you to another location ( radscorpion caves in shady sands, Irwin's Farm, and Deathclaw Lair in Hub)

    originally you were just teleported to those places, once you've talked to the right people. with Satellite locations enabled you will now have to go to the worldmap ( red exit grid ) and travel to those locations by yourself, once you get the coordinates, and they'll show on your worldmap.

    simple as that.

    Is NovaRain's PerkEveryLevel Mod compatible with E Tu? Also what happened to the bonus items when starting from V13 with the game setting on "Easy"? Yeah, I'm one of those players who also save scum.

    Finally is there any way I can tweak the new barter formula? Vanilla barter was so busted, but the modded version is too harsh for my taste. If not I'll stick to vanilla but just try not to abuse it.

    The process giving the starting loadout is fixed. Now it correctly gives bonus items based on your tagged skills, as you are not supposed to receive extra stuff from other skills.

    You can write your own barter formula script using gl_z_fo1barter.ssl as the base.

    Thanks, I might check on that! And considering you made the mod variant, can I extract your version of PerkEveryLevel(or similarly your perk every two levels) into Fallout1in2? Thanks.

    I took the request from Michael to give Sophia the pulse grenades, but if I give it to her, the game crashes with memory reference. If not, Michael gets pissed off and unwilling to give me stuff.
