Moding Fallout 3?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay so I got Fallout 3 and I want to mod it, I downloaded the Modern Weapons mod from:

http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3925

I extracted the files using 7zip and I moved the .esp file to my data file and I can buy the guns, but when I equip them and try and use them it doesn't show any gun and when I have it "Equipped" the screen turns a transparent white while I move. I moved the textures over too and it still doesn't work. Can someone please help, this is the first time I've modded a game. Or tried to I guess. I don't have any other mods installed so nothing could be conflicting with it. I must have done it wrong, and if anyone has ever done this mod a step by step would be awesome.

Thanks

20th Century Weapons is god-tier. Anything else is a spah! As for the errors, make sure you invalidated files and that you installed it correctly. You need to merge all the folders. Meshes merges with meshes, textures with textures, etc etc.


Also, Joe is right about Vault 42. If I can't answer it, someone else can.

How do I make sure that I invalidated them correctly and which folders do I need to merge and how to I merge the folders, there is a Meshes, Textures, then the .esp file. I tried just moving the esp over and that obviously doesn't work ha. Sorry for all the trouble guys, OCN was the very first place I turned.

I was going to point out the handy dandy invalidate button in fomm, but apparently, you found it.

This is how I do it:

Open downloaded archive --> Select folders --> drag and drop into Fallout 3/Data --> Hit "Yes" when promted --> ??? --> Folders merged!

Or, if the mod comes packaged with a Data folder already containing those folders, I just do this:

Open downloaded archive --> Select "Data" folder --> Drag and drop into main Fallout folder --> Hit "Yes" --> Done!
