Hey all, I'm just looking for some general advice and recommendations on mod usage. I've found it a bit difficult piecing together all the information on mod installation, compatibility, and such, especially without central repository (like nexusmods) or when top level posts don't reflect the current state of updates, and so on. I'm pretty savvy when it comes to modding games; I've modded almost every game I've ever played if it was possible from DOOM to FO4, so just point me in the general direction and I'll figure it out! I played Fallout 1 or 2, can't even remember, for a very short period of time a long time ago but never got super into it. I've just now finished off of a modded first time FNV playthrough with like 200 hours playtime, and I've catapulted it to the top of my favorite new age fallout/elder scrolls games. I know it's reminiscent of the OG titles so I figured I should give em another go, namely FO2 because I know I won't have the patience to work through both titles. I'm a sucker for modding my games; If I know I can get an essentially superior experience (and you guys have been crafting these mods for like 2 decades) I just can't justify a vanilla playthrough. I generally try to keep things lore-friendly, which usually comes down to fixing and modernizing the game, adding in things that are in the spirit or the vision of the original creators, and making things as brutally difficult as the fun allows (I think dark souls has ruined difficulty for me in other games). And as for the actual question(s): I'm very interested in EcCo as it seems what the creator set out to do is very much in line with how difficult I would like to make things. So as far as I can tell, what I want for my definitive vanilla-esque modded playthrough is RP 2.3.3 (pkged with sFall) with EcCo? I know that RP is the base for this, but is it possible to use RPU? What about latest updated sFall versions? It would be a bummer to miss out on fixes provided in recent years by sFall, RPU/UPU, but there are really no economy/combat difficulty balances otherwise. Are there any other major fixes or mods that are definitive must haves? I've gotten quite used to the whole grabbing whatever the fuck mods I want for FO3, FNV, FO4, Skyrim and doing a quick 1-2 in xEdit to make everything play nicely, but I suppose there's some more pick and choosing for older games. Sorry if it's all a bit lengthy and vague! Oh yea as a side note, was a bit tricky having to figure out the registration question when the links to the forum archives 404! Wayback machine for the win!
