Fallout*Qt

April 20, 2011 - Posted in Fallout3VE , FalloutNVVE Posted by:

So I guess this is kind of my first official announcement around Fallout*Qt and the future of Fallout*VE applications. First up Fallout*VE will not continue to be actively developed, updated or supported. Now before you go getting all in a huff, realize that Fallout*Qt will take it’s place as I still feel there is a need for a good Fallout savegame editing tool.

So just what is Fallout*Qt? Gald you asked, Fallout*Qt is a Fallout savegame editing tool that is written in a language I actually know!  C++, where as the current Fallou*VE series was written in C# a language I knew nothing about before I started this endeavor, in fact that was one of the reasons I wrote it in C# as I wanted to try it out. However after doing so I was kind of bound to the Windows platform. Now that I’ve gone back to C++ I’ve created Fallout*Qt for Windows, Linux and Mac.

As the development continues the Fallout*Qt series proves to be just a simple to use with all the same payout, and even more stability and functionality with the added niceness of cross-platform usability.

So what does Qt stand for?

Qt simply refers to the cross-platform application and UI framework that it’s built on.

i love your fallout VEs. have you ever considered making a Oblivion VE? its an old game but everyone that i know who liked it when it came out still loves it today.
Also on a totally different note… could you think about adding the option to edit your running speed and jumping height for at least Fallout NV if not both fallouts? i’m sure there are plenty of fans who would love to be able to run like Flash Gordon or Sonic the Hedgehog. just a though. =)

thank you, glad you enjoyed them. as for the oblivion editor probably not as i don’t own the game, and have never played it.

as for those options i don’t see why not, i’ll work on it for the next release. – thx

I’ve been keeping up with the New Vegas VE program after my friend got me into it and was ecstatic after you added support for the Dead Money items. However, I’ve been having trouble with editing in the Trenchcoat and the Mysterious Stranger outfit. Are these just buggy to begin with or does replacing certain items cause a game crash? I’ve noticed this when overriding the Bright Brotherhood Robe. Anyway, I just thought I’d just seek some help while saying thanks. I’m glad you update the VE as frequently as you do and that you’ve taken the QT step (my brother’s been envious of my 360 since I showed him NVVE.)

@Mitch, tbh I’m not 100% sure but items that were never intended for player use could for sure cause issues. I’m going to check this out for myself and get back to you. – thx

Hey Synmuffin I had a quick question, I came across a save that someone had made and released it on his website. It had Every armor and weapon and even weapons that are from fallout 3 and armor as well, for Example Mayor MCcreadys outfit from fallout 3.
I was wondering could you add items like that with the editor? and the save also had a custom safe house. It was the good springs school house totally redone fixed up and added some NPC’s in it as well as a npc that allowed reputation editing and what ending you want. I was wondering how he did that and how did it work? could you do that with the VE? If you want the save its at powerpunchers.net you gotta sign up and go to forums you’ll figure it out from there

@Mike.P,

There are several ways to go about doing this, one way would be use FalloutNVVE and add said items to your inventory and drop (place) them appropriately. This is not to bad for simply weapons and npc’s etc.. however there is a much simpler / faster way to do it and thats get a pc version and use the game’s console to edit it, once you’ve edited it save the pc game and convert it to an XBOX 360 version.

There is also the G.E.C.K. that allows you to do things like this again for PC only, but saves can be ported to the XBOX 360.

I noticed something on FONV Ve is that the database button between Close File and Import PC to Xbox360 it says “Load searchable Fallout 3 Item Database.” but it is on NV VE. And i wanted to let you know. In case you wanted to Fix it. I know its not much but a simple typo and wanted you yo know.

@David, thanks for letting me know :) I’ll make sure to change this in the next release.

@kyle, not sure why it would do that, seems to be working for everyone else.

@kyle, in my experience that is usually the sign of a virus or just bad internet.

@synmuffin, I cannot believe you have not played Oblivion. :P I hope you try Skyrim when it’s released! Anyways glad your back making epic tools.

will it be released for only Xbox or PS3 and Xbox cause i cant seem to find any mods on ps3 for fallout NV well i do find a couple but it requires a jailbreak witch is illegal and i could get sued. so if its only for Xbox can you try and make one for ps3.

Reply

synmuffin 3 years ago

Xbox 360 only. I don’t even own a PS3.

Hey, has anyone every thought that it would be cool if ther was an addtion to Fallout*Qt or Fallout*VE or an external app that let you take mods that where intended for the PC, to be changed, compressed, and re-written into an .esm file so it can be added as a DLC into our fallout game saves and so we could have sweet weapons or armors like M4 carbines, or US Marine armor an such. (hint hint synmuffin you should look into being the first to do this, it would be a hit INSTANTLY WORLD-WIDE, as long as its possible, which im not entirely sure is)

Reply

synmuffin 3 years ago

Such a tool already exists, it’s called Content Creator XDK.

Oh, and another question, if you use GECK for PC Fallout and install mods, will a converted save (that you do with Fallout*VE) to xbox 360 have the mods in the inventory or in the game?

Reply

synmuffin 3 years ago

No.
