    Hey guys, I have released a new plugin that will bring the game experience a step closer to Fallout. It won't significantly alter the game mechanic but will increase the game difficulty. Since changes were made only to the radiation properties it shouldn't conflict with other plugins afaik, make sure to load the plugin after the others and not before for the changes to take place.

    * Changed radiation level from 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000 to 150, 300, 450, 600 and 1000 respectively.

    * Changed Minor Rad. Poisoning (-1 EN) to Slightly fatigued (-1 ST)

    * Changed Advanced Rad. Poisoning (-2 EN, -1 AG ) to Vomiting does not stop (-1 ST, -1 AG)

    * Changed Critical Rad. Poisoning (-1 ST, -3 EN, -2 AG) to Hair is falling out (-2 ST, -1 EN, -2 AG)

    * Changed Deadly Rad. Poisoning (-2 ST, -3 EN, -2 AG) to Skin is falling off (-4 ST, -3 PE, -3 EN, -3 CH, -1 IN, -5 AG)

    * Rad-X value increased from 20 to 300 caps.

    * Rad-X gives immediate +50 Radiation Resistance (After 60 Seconds: -25 Radiation Resistance, After 120 Seconds: -25 Radiation Resistance) instead of immediate +25 Radiation Resistance for 4 minutes.

    * Rad Away value increased from 20 to 500 caps.

    * Rad Away gives immediate -25 Radiation Count (After 120 Seconds: -50 Radiation Count, After 240 Seconds: -75 Radiation Count) instead of immediate -50 Radiation Count.

    * The Contemplating Contamination Quest (The Wasteland Survival Guide) has been modified to work with this plugin.

    * The Rad Regeneration Perk has been modified to work with this plugin.

    * Small changes has been made to the Gameplay, Tutorial and Help messages.

    Even though no one seems to have any interest I'll still keep you guys updated - just in case, you know..

    Here's my third and probably most noticeable and mechanic altering plugin. Am I the only one who noticed how useless and dumbed down Fallout 3 attributes are. I spent an hour playing with most of my attributes decreased and there was slightly no change at all. Not only that but how incredibly moronic they affect skills! I'm surprised no one ever fixed that...

    Attributes points will now significantly affect their related skills and their distribution will become increasingly important as the character level up as you can no longer rely on base modifiers. With only half of your Hit Points, carefully choosing foes and opponents will become a big part of the game, combats are now brutal! Action Points have also been decreased and no longer will you be able to rely solely on your V.A.T.S. to cripple specific body parts. Unarmed and Melee fights are going to be painful and doubtly viable.

    Would be nice to see food/drink/meds mod in some bigger mod
    Very good idea with effect over time.
    Bad part is meds price are kinda high this can make player rich in early lvls just selling few meds thus making game easier. And cripled limbs in purly my opinion stims or doctors should be the only things that heal criple limbs. In Your mod case super stims could heal limbs with over time effect like 3-5 mins.

    Anyways very good job on the mod :)

    Hey mrowa, thank you for replying to my thread. The reason why I'm breaking my stuff into several smaller plugins is because it was made to be used with a bigger more complete mod (RttW or XFO for example), you can thus only download the parts that you want and leave the ones that you don't without fear of having issues with the other mod. I know the meds and chems prices are higher but using the plugin with a mod that reduce their amount takes care of the issue. About crippled limbs, I'll have to find a way to deal with that, maybe in a future version or plugin? In any case, thank you for commenting, it is much appreciated.

    Another thing : can u think of some way to affect the range of weapons ? Shooting a SM Master with Ol' Painless standing 2 km from me with PE = 1 is kinda uber lame.

    Maybe something like adding a value to spread of weapon when player shoots, with the value depending on players PE ?
    Dunno if it can be made with the GECK tool?

    OW. BTW - great work with the chems.
