    I played Fallout 1 with Fallout Fixt and had an absolute blast, and now I want to play Fallout 2, enhanced with an awesome mod like Fallout Fixt. It appears I have two choices: The Fallout 2 Restoration Project by killap and MIB88's Megamod. My question is which one is better and why, since I know you can't use both at the same time. I want to download Fallout Nevada as well, but I'm not sure if that conflicts too. I'd really appreciate some guidance on this, as well as perhaps knowledge on how to download and use these mods.

    Keep in mind: I have Fallout 2 through steam, and I'm playing on windows 10

    Since it's going to be your first playthrough, F2RP will be the one you need to install. It fixes all the bugs that the devs didn't quite managed to, while also restoring cut content. Megamod adds a lot of stuff, and even though I've only tried Megamod by seeing the first screen before entering the tutorial area, Megamod is obviously not for those who only want to experience vanilla/purist playthrough. It's okay if you want new content (even though the content would be modder-tier at best).

    You can install Fallout of Nevada into its own folder, without needing to mess up with Fallout 2's folder.
