Shows essential Mods to fix any stutters, FPS caps or weird engine physics going haywire, so you can at least play the vanilla game with some optional enhancements. I dont show huge overhauls like DUST[www.nexusmods.com] but i do show things like Project Nevada and FO4 quick loot.
THIS GUIDE IS W.I.P
im mostly making this as a reference for myself. If others use it, thats cool too.
Next time i play this game ill update with more things that are suitable for generic play.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PLAYING ON WINDOWS 7 or enabling windows 7 compatibility in properties for the main executable
I made it dual boot on my SSD for WIN 10 for general gaming and WIN 7 for fallout3+NV since win 10 crashes too much for fo3/nv

Bullettime[www.nexusmods.com]I LOVE THIS MOD, i prefer 114 version. Slows down time when you push a certain key, itll drain AP or not if you want. PJNevada has this in it, but i like the way its implemented as a standalone and i disable the nevada one
Sprint Mod[www.nexusmods.com] My prefered settings:
set SprintSpeedMultGlob to 3 [normal running speed is 1]
set SprintAPMultglob to 0 [default 2]
SPRINT MOD PERKS
With this perk, you can keep your weapon out while sprinting. Don’t expect to be very accurate while you’re doing this, though.
Sprint into a hostile enemy (they have to be hostile) to attempt to tackle them. Your strength and unarmed skill will be compared to their strength and endurance, and if you win, they’ll be knocked over. If you lose by too much you might be knocked down yourself, so watch out! Attempting a tackle takes 1/4 of your AP, so don’t waste it all on the way there.
