    I am pretty sure there is at least some people on this forum that have played Wasteland merc mod for fallout 2 and i would like to hear some opinions about it. It would help me out now when we are making Wasteland merc 2 to know what to keep and what people think we should add and allso what they hated and what we should improve in the second part.

    Anyway here are 2 screenshots from Wasteland merc 2.

    Why is there a satellite inside the fucking building? And surrounded by about a hundred fucking aliens?

    To begin with it was not screenshots i wanted coments on but on actuall wasteland merc mod. And that alien base well its not cut scene but more of an aranged fallout 2 editor picture. That place exists but aliens are much more scatared all around that map. Only if your a jackass you will get in to that situation. And its not inside a building. Its outdoors. Well people that played wasteland merc 1 should understand that screenshot better.

    As i said you got to play Wasteland merc 1 to understand that screenshot. I am not gonna go in to explaining why alliens keep there stuff outside. Its like asking why vault dweller is walking around wasteland looking for a waterchip but yet again he doesnt drink any water at all.

    Oh... So it's the aliens computer? I guess they buy their stuff from the same place as the enclave. Go figure.... *shrugs*

    Yea its bought at same place. Big wasteland super market for all your needs. :roll: Actually those screenshots are just first draft. Final mod probebly wont look nothing like those 2 screenshots. When we where making Wasteland merc 1 we had custom interface on screenshots that people didnt like and than before mod was released we removed it.

    Its understandable that the codex is a bit grumpy at the moment, we're like a pedophile that's been in lockup for 5 years - we need little boy ass and we need it now!

    Well, for my part they look good and the nitpicking is kind of lame.

    I would blow a goat for a really good fallout mod.

    Its just a regular girl that took that pic to come of as goofy. And i asked her if i can use it in a fallout 2 mod and she said ok. I didnt ask to give out personal info about her so i wont do that. But she is not in any way insane or something like that if thats what your wondering.

    Well go to http://wastelandmerc.atspace.com/ And there you can find link to all webpages where you can download Wasteland merc mod and allso description what the mod is about. Or you can go directly to Duck and cover or gamespot or fileplanet and look for it there.

    We made some progress in making Wasteland merc 2 so i am posting 2 more screenshots. Oh yea dont mind the spelling on them. It was fast made text file just for testing the script. Final version allredy got fixed by one of our dialog writers that actually has english as native lang.

    Its an oldschool ultima online like crafting menu so you mine ore and smelt it in to bars and than go to a factory and craft from the main pc in it.

    This is looking good.

    I will download the mod sometime tomorrow.

    NMA hosts it, right?

    Though I don't know how much time I may have to really play it out. Is it a large/long mod - many areas or quests? Just kinda wondering as things are pretty hectic for me.

    Though what better use of my free time than playtesting a good Fallout mod. Right?

    I guess what I mean is: Is this mod worth my time?
    Can you give me any reason why I should try it out?
    Other than it being a Fallout mod, I mean.

    Thanks.

    btw. Those craft/resource screens have me intrigued...

    Crafting menu is not in Wasteland merc 1. We recently scripted it and mining to go with it and its going to be in wasteland merc 2.

    And if its worth a download. Well here is the one of best player made revievs that i seen. It sure is a bit overkilled reviev but the guy that played it really liked it.
