Description: Fallout 3 - Megaton House Extended v2.61

The main function of this mod is to greatly expand upon the Megaton House. First off the back wall of the bottom floor was removed to make way for a massive new living room, Kitchen w/ bar, and a full bathroom. To go along with the expanded rooms, new furniture, decorations, and containers have been added. They revolve in design around the PreWar theme, which was the core originally of the this mod. Buying the PreWar theme pretty much gets you a completely refurnished house, basically all the stuff added you see in the pictures is bought with the PreWar theme as of V2.6.

The main function of this mod is to greatly expand upon the Megaton House. First off the back wall of the bottom floor was removed to make way for a massive new living room, Kitchen w/ bar, and a full bathroom. To go along with the expanded rooms, new furniture, decorations, and containers have been added. They revolve in design around the PreWar theme, which was the core originally of the this mod. Buying the PreWar theme pretty much gets you a completely refurnished house, basically all the stuff added you see in the pictures is bought with the PreWar theme as of V2.6.

There is now also a new basement that is truly unique for my mod. The Basement can be purchased in V2.6, and is free in V2.5, the room adds a massive research center as the heart of the room decorated with Vault and Enclave computers and gadgets, like comm center, Holographic war Map, The BOS survey mapper, etc. Off this main room, one leads to you very own medical facility. Its Very well detailed down to the placement of operating tools on the trays. there is also another Lab set for good fun. The other main room is your own personnel armory overlooked by the Lincoln Memorial. The room has several lockers, and gun locker variations (Some with shelves and ammo boxes), along with tables and shelves for displaying all your armor and weapons in the open.

--------------------------------------------------------
Latest Version Update - What did it do?
--------------------------------------------------------
Version 2.61 tries to resolve the new bedroom issue with new custom walls, a new desk, and removed clutter on the desk area. There is also a new shelf in the bedroom to display items, and some better less intrusive desk decorations. Significant clutter within the vanilla PreWar theme has been removed, useeless pots and pans, crap like that to free up shelf space and better performance.
--------------------------------------------------------
Upcoming Releases: 2.6 Variations and Fixes: 2.7
--------------------------------------------------------
2.6 Initial release makes it so everything must be purchased. Ill release a free version soon. I am also expecting adding in more decor and furniture may be too much for some people. If so Ill release a lite version mostly containing fixes since 2.5 but with less stuff. I'm currently doing some tweaks with V2.6 you may see some minor incremental versions such as v2.61 etc. Mostly they will revolve around moving or resizing objects, adding additional decorations stuff like that.

Version 2.7 will be worked upon after any bugs or issues from 2.6 are resolved. 2.7 Will be mainly to expand upon other house themes besides the Pre-War Theme. I plan on releasing two complete expanded themes for 2.7. The Love theme and another theme by popular choice, so leave a comment to put you support behind another theme. My custom Communist Theme will probably not be included in 2.7 just worked upon, to be released in future time since it will contain custom art for furniture, flags, pictures and decorations.

I am also up for putting some other rooms into the Basement. The area itself is actually really small, there's alot of room to expand without performance issues, and since the areas unique there's no possible conflicts since it is its own cell. Leave a comment if you have a recommendation for adding on anything else

For Compatibility With these MODS:
--------------------------------------------------------
FutureVisions "My MyMegatonBasement Fixed." ALL Verisons
There is a way to avoid CTD's with our two mods but you must follow these instructions and you need the Fallout Mod Manager.
Have his mod load in precedence to mine, (His mod higher on the list than mine). This works however his door is partially now covered up by the wall and u need to no-clip (Code: TLC) to activate it.
He has also suggested using the free version of his mod "V1_3 "which may prevent any conflicts at all.

"Megaton House Expansion Mod Final" by SPiKENSBROR is 100% Compatible with 2.1 and all future versions

"Megaton Tweaks" mod by dragon0421, is reported to work Work 100% with my mod. Thanks to kox23 for letting me know.

--------------------------------------------------------
Known Issues - Please read if you get a CTD
--------------------------------------------------------
If you are getting CTD's upon loading a previous save, deactivate my mod, then try removing ALL your items in your megaton house that were in storage, save, and then load the up again with my mod loaded.
--Thanks to Piso Mojado for making me aware of this.

It is also recommended before activating my mod you clear whatever house theme you using, even if its the prewar theme. Do this by going to Moira and say I want to change my theme at which point your theme is just removed. Save your game then activate my mod.
---Thanks to sabreblade for this recommendation.

Loading my mod LAST (Bottom of list) in the Fallout Mod Manager is advised to prevent conflicts with other Mods. But pleased be advised that using my mod with another mod that adds storage or objects to the locations I have will obviously cause conflicts.

Past releases had issues with CTD's due to graphic restraints for most people. 2.5 and ALL future versions should be much more accessible to people due to the separate cells and reduced clutter and better lighting.

Companions so far cannot follow you into the basement. They tend to follow ok into the living room, but may have problems wit the expanded bedroom in v2.6.
