lorefriendly (for more fitting Fallout music, check outCONELRAD 6401240 by the same mod

though that is exactly what it does. Vurts Flora Overhaul for Fallout 3 doesnt just change the
colour of the wastelands dead plantlife it completely overhauls the games atmosphere and
visual tone. Dont worry if youre not a fan of green, this mod comes in fourflavours: Forested
Edition, Dead Edition, Total Devastation Edition, and Lite. The first is the most drastic change,
turning the Capital into a beautiful green paradise, albeit still a horrifying anarchistic one. Its

is a minimilstic approach to the overhaul, sticking as close to the vanilla experience as possible
whilst still replacing a couple of the default trees and groundcovers. Just when you thought the
wasteland couldnt get any more beautiful and/or bleak, Vurts Flora Overhaul promises to give

If you had to download just one mod, it would probably have to be Fallout Wanderers Edition.
Lessof a mod and more of a complete overhaul, thissets out to enhance the core gameplay
mechanics behind Fallout 3 along with the welcome addition of new content. The firstperson
shooter aspect is now muchstronger, making for a fresh experience that requires player skill as
