  • How to make it compatible with TZMapMarkers

    ➢ Get the right tool

    Download fallout 4 creation kit in the bethesda launcher. We won't use the actual creation kit but, a tool that comme with it.

    You can open Ba2 files with Archive2.

  • Something soon

    After some long absence and a really weird sleep schedule I am back to fix some issues. I am currently looking into making this texture mod a ba2 file with little success. If necessary I may need to use BAKA . 

    The way that I mod the texture uses the .dds files within Bethesda's ba2 files. More recently I have been unable to extract any new versions of the dds files that contain the actual textures. Additionally this also is more low effort work as I can only do basic edits. To aid the setup of textures I went looking for a way to export nif files . Long story short Nifscope doesn't work for F76 so I found an alternative. Using a program called Nija Ripper I was able to rip the necessary Object files . Just spent a majority of the day getting the front portion of the Pipbo...

  • Font Library Installation Instructions (Russian)

    Инструкция по установке библиотеки шрифтов


    К сожалению, Fallout 76 не загружает файлы напрямую из папки interface, как это делал Fallout 4. К тому же после обновления от 10 июня 2019, невозможно переопределить библиотеку шрифтов, загружая ее в стороннем BA2-архиве. Поэтому, единственный способ установки шрифтов - перепаковка одного из оригинальных BA2-архивов, со всеми вытекающими последствиями, такими, как невозможность играть в ...

  • Manual Patching Guide

    Since 10th June, 2019 Bethesda have made it impossible to load custom fonts via standard third party mods. If you still want the icons you'll need to modify the main game files directly as described below.

    Warning: By modifying the main ba2s you may cause instability, or possibly get banned from the game. Although it seems no one ever has been banned for this.

    Note: You need to swap the modded and original ba2s around if you want to play Nuclear Winter as Bethesda are doing integrity checks for that mode.

    Important: If you ever get errors when patching make sure xTranslator is up-to-date.
