The pre-War theme is one of the possible themes for the player character's residence in Fallout 3.

Megaton house

The rug and furniture are the biggest differences noticed, as well as the shelves of food next to the stairwell. A coat/hat rack and gnome are to the right of the door, as well as a brand new Red Racer tricycle in the middle of the room. Upstairs there is additional furniture (small chairs, lamp table and lamp, etc.), including a couch in the spare room.

Pre-War Theme

This improvement also adds:


  • If anything small or flat is dropped on the rug, (magazines, silverware, etc.), they will vanish from sight but are still there. Just move the cursor around until the item name appears and the item can be picked back up. This can happen when trying to lay magazines on the living room table, as the bottom level of the table appears to have an invisible slant on it, preventing items from sitting flat and sometimes sliding off, depending on the weight and size of the item.
  • The tricycle can be very hard to handle, due to its size and that it cannot be put into the player's inventory. It has a habit of bouncing around when the player character or any companions bump into it, which can in turn hit other things and ruin any decorations that have been put in place. The tricycle can, however, be picked up using the grab control and shoved somewhere out of the way, like behind the door in the upstairs den or next to the bobble head stand, though it has the tendency to reappear at its original location every few days. One can completely delete it using the console and the zap command.
  • If any items are lying around the suite/house before buying the theme, e.g. a missile launcher or power armor, they may disappear permanently after purchasing the theme. Make sure all items are either stored in a locker or in the Lone Wanderer's inventory beforehand.
  • In the Pip-Boy's Items' Misc section, the theme is seen as an unremovable item. On the PC, it can be removed by typing "player.removeitem 7c123 1 in the console.

Tenpenny Tower suite

The pre-War theme will consist of a shelf, a coffee table, two chairs, a dog house with a stuffed dog, an oven, a fridge, a work desk, a couch, a bathtub and an non-operational TV. Notable loot is listed. (the fridge and the oven cannot be interacted with)
