    Cool Tutorial: How to 'Become' an NPC

    Okay Then, I hate Tutorials, But I think this PSA should be Done


    How To 'Become' an NPC

    I find that is very hard to make a face worth using in Fallout 3, Many people can atest to turning a ugly Preset in an Even Uglier Blob

    Bethesda made plenty of ugly NPCs, but some came out right

    This Tutorial will allow you to use the face and race of an NPC, I have not seen any Tutorial of the such so I drug this out of nowhere


    This can be done at any time during Gameplay, but the earlier the better
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    REQUIREMENTS

    Fallout 3 PC

    Fallout 3 PC Construction Set

    Modio and possibly Xtaf Explorer

    Possibly Fallout3VE

    A Inner sense of Wellbeing

    Patience

    Posting Thanks

    Converting a save from Xbox 360 to PC

    1. Get your save from your HDD/MU onto your desktop.

    2. Open the save in a hex editor. Scroll down until you see the name of your save on the right. For example:
    S.a.v.e. .6.8.3. .-. .V.a.l.s.e.,. .E.n.g.i.n.e.e.r.i.n.g. .C.o.r.e.,. .0.1.5...3.1...5.4

    3. Copy and paste the text into a text file, then get rid of all the extra stops and add .fos at the end. The above save would become:
    Save 683 - Valse, Engineering Core, 015.31.54.fos

    4. Highlight and copy your new filename.

    5. Open your Xbox save in Modio. Go to the 'Contents' tab, and extract Savegame.dat to your desktop. Rename this file with the text you just copied.

    6. Drop the new .fos file into your PC save folder, and you're good to go.

    Creating the Ability to Be a NPC

    7. Open the Geck Construction Set

    8. File -> Data -> Check Fallout3.Esm

    9. Browse the object window to the NPC you want to Be

    Recommendations:
    Amata or Sarah Lyons

    10. Open the NPC and select 'is FaceGen Face Preset'

    11. Resist the urge to edit anything else.

    12. File -> Save

    13. Name it whatever you Want

    14. Load the .Esp in your Fallout 3 Launcher (If it isnt there, run the GECK as Admin, Vista hates it)


    Gettin Crap Done

    15. Load your save in-game

    16. Open the Command Console ( ~ Button) and Type:

    Player.SexChange (Change to the Gender of the NPC you want. (Remove Facial hair first))(Optional, may already be present in Race menu)

    ShowRaceMenu (Go to the ethnicity of the NPC and cycle presets to find the NPC's Face)
    Confirm the Change

    ShowNameMenu (Change name to the NPC's Name)

    Confirm the Change

    Type TFC while in third person and fly to view your New Player

    Retype TFC


    17. Save (Saving multiple times may help)


    18. Exit


    Converting the save from PC to Xbox 360

    - This requires an Xbox save. Make a backup in case it doesn't work.

    1. Open your PC save folder (usually something like C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\MyGames\Fallout3). Find the save you want to convert and copy it to desktop.

    2. Open your Xbox save in Modio. Go to the 'Contents' tab, right-click Savegame.dat and choose to overwrite it. Browse to desktop and find your PC save. Use that.

    3. Rehash and Resign with Modio - and again with Hash Block Calc if possible.

    4. Place it on your HDD/MU.

    Congrats! You now are an 'Exact' Copy of the NPC

    I'm sure people will get some good use from the info (always forget things like this aren't actually common knowledge), so props for posting the tut.

    Edit: Did the save I sent work?
