USE THIS MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK

This simple mod affects all the power armors in the game including the unique sets. There are two versions, do not install both at the same time.

All Power Armor has been improved. You can choose between 60% DR and 75% DR versions (including helmet). It is hard to say which is more balanced as the game is already rather easy on the highest difficulty without any modding. If you kill everything before it can shoot back it doesn't matter how good your armor is. Radiation resistance has been increased to 30% for Brotherhood suits and 40% for Enclave suits. Tesla Armor has around 10-15% more DR than regular Power Armor.

All suits except the Medical Prototype give +2 Strength with no agility penalty. It is currently not possible to make the armor have no weight when worn (although this functionality existed in Oblivion). Instead, wearing the armor increases your character's carry weight by 50lbs so that it effectively carries itself.

In line with the vanilla statistics, Brotherhood, Outcast and Enclave suits provide the same protection but Enclave suits are much more durable and have better radiation resistance.

Better Power Armor with Assisted Targeting makes the Power Helmets increase AP. Power Helmets (including Brotherhood and T-51b Helmets) give a +25 AP bonus, while Enclave Helmets (including Tesla Helmets) give +30 AP. It also includes all the above changes, so do not use it with the original Better Power Armor or there will be problems. Like the original it comes in 60% and 75% DR versions, do not use both together.

To install, place in the 'Data' folder of your Fallout 3 directory. Start the Fallout 3 launcher and go to 'Data Files'. Check the file and exit. Start the game. Please read up on how to install mods for Fallout 3 if you have any other problem.

Without a proper Construction Set all entries have to be decoded by trial and error so there may be bugs. There shouldn't be any problems with this mod but please remember to back up before installing. If you load a game where your character is wearing Power Armor the old stats might conflict with the modded stats, resulting in the permanent stat increase bug. To prevent this, please take off your character's Power Armor and save the game, then install the mod, load the savegame and put the armor back on.


Feel free to tweak this mod to your liking. Refer to the modding thread on the Bethseda forums for details of how to edit the values.

Credits go to Bethseda for Fallout 3, Timeslip for FOMM, Rheikon for decoding the armor entries, and Throttlekitty for helping me learn how to mod.
