Fallout 3: Elite Edition is a collection of Fallout 3 PC mods that I put together for the Playstation 3. My goal is to add as many mods as I can into Fallout 3 GOTY without creating any "lag" or game "freezing". So I put together a mod pack for those who are finding it difficult to mod Fallout 3 because of the PS3"s limitations, or are new to modding. It really annoyed me that I could"nt take In-Game Screenshots from my XMB because of that stupid blur that overlaps the screen when pressing the HOME button. After days of research I finally removed it, now all screenshots taken of the Wasteland are crystal clear and not a blurry mess :chuncky: So far I"ve successfully added over 40+ mods without any lag! I had over 100 mods running but it was too buggy and frequently froze up the PS3...probably because of the Playstation"s limited memory, or mod compatibility issues.

My projects will always be free, but If you enjoy my mods please consider making a small donation. I spend alot of my spare time modding various PS3 games, as any game modder may know...this puts my consoles through alot of stress. All the freezing and resetting that occurs while testing mods puts strain on my PS3, not to mention its extremely time consuming. I have killed several junker refurbs in the past few years by overworking them too much, leaving me with only a one junker console to mod with. Donations help me continue to mod games, and to help buy/replace broken consoles and parts. To make a donation please visit my PayPal donation link below.

It is recommended that you create a BACKUP of Fallout 3 and your game save BEFORE installing this mod pack. Files inside of your Fallout 3 folder will be overwritten with modded files during installation, leaving you with only a modded version of Fallout 3. I left backups in the folders for those of you who wish to continue without making a backup. If a backup is made beforehand you dont have to rename/delete files to uninstall the mods, just simply delete the modded version.

Installation is simple really, just copy/replace "PS3_GAME" folder from my mod pack into your Fallout 3 folder, and delete the Game Data for Fallout 3 from XMB. For those who need more help, ive listed detailed instructions below:

So make sure you are selecting "Game Data Utility" and NOT "Save Data Utility". Game Data for Fallout 3 can be deleted anytime, it will re-install what it needs next time you play the game.
