    The armor texture is as good as finished. I am just tweaking it a bit here and there. The helmet texture will get finished in the next few days. So count on the next weekend for a first release.

    I added the glove mod from above, now it really looks better. But: Now it is added as standard to every power armor. I have no clue how to do it just for the APA.. but seriously, I am also not really interested in changing this because it looks far better now on every power armor.

    Also for now I have planned two version of the armor:

    Version 1 - the APA as no-replacement with Fallout 3 vanilla-like stats. It will be a bit weaker than the Mk2 (because everybody says, this is the Mk1..)
    Version 2 - the APA as no-replacement and with adjusted stats. All power armors will get adjusted stats, based on the Better Power Armor mod. And of course, more original-like stats. That means, the APA gives +4 strength, the T-51b +3 strength, etc.

    I personally just use the second version because in Fallout 3 vanilla a power armor means nothing and is useless crap.

    Well, let's be honest.

    Neither of those options fits original Lore very well since Bethesda screwed the pooch with the APA Mark II in the first place. Bethesda's APA Mk II looks absolutely nothing like the Mk II from Fallout 2 (and of course doesn't have the same stats either). A good option for smooth continuity with Fallout 2 would be just to assume all Enclave are now using the Mk II and replace all "Enclave Power Armor" with your new model.

    IMO, it shouldn't be the Mk I, it should be the Mk II.

    A replacement can be done in approx 2 minutes, so this isn't a problem.

    Hmm well it looks amazing kinda like monalisa of fallout community xD

    Only a little thing bothers me, its the eye textures they look kinda soft. Im not a spec in this matter but u could add a grid to it and check if its not looking better would try t myself but my skills in graphic end up in using paint :P

    First of all Thank you so much for creating this awesome thing.

    I have just one question: I installed the "ClassicEnclaveAPA-Better-APA-english.esp", how exactly do I get the Armor now ingame?

    Some of the Enclave soldiers are wearing this armor. Not all of them, but approx 50%. Also mostly the big weapons-soldiers carry this armor. If you just activated the module, it can take a while until you see the armor because the Enclave soldiers need to respawn. Existing soldiers will have still the normal PA.
