    As I said - it is more tech-related problem for me, then anything else (not talking about my language skills that isn't the best).
    Maybe some Pope Amole II could translate it, but I have a feeling that he had not the slightest interest in this.

    Don't question mate. Olympus is good, go help or go home. :troll:
    Kidding, but yeah, may be so because Nevada is way harder to translate/more words than Olympus.

    Well... I understand that this would postpone result with Nevada but I can't force myself to translate what I don't like or just not favour.
    Or maybe later I'll get willpower for that.

    It's not THAT bad, it is just not that good as Nevada.

    You said you don't like it, so I wondered what you don't like about it. Care to answer it?

    I didn't played it, it is just its visual style and what I have read about gameplay and quests.

    It's like if you read about quests and saw visual design you still have no idea what the game it is.

    I'm p. sure the visual design is the same for any FO2 TC mod. Unless something is being lost in translation here.

    No, the visual design in Olympus is quite unique in comparison with other FO2 mods. But I would say that it is actually the best feature of this TC. Almost all sprites and tiles are new or heavily retouched. Olympus has a certain dieselpunk vibe which I really enjoyed. Even the power armor in Olympus is diesel-powered:lol:. I find the weapons sprites especially cool.

    Writing itself isn't very good, but passable. The main problem of Olympus is the lack of structure and coherency. The different locations just feel unconnected and differ too much in style. It's like the usual Fallout2 incoherence, but squared and doubled. Story doesn't give any motivation for PC in the last parts of the game. And closer to the end the narration just falls apart.

    FoN is defenetely more :obviously:. It has far more content and its quality and coherency are also higher. But on the other hand, FoN heavily relies on the already existing setting of Fallout, while Olympus offers something new.

    I mean I don't like how it look. New models, armor, etc.

    Yep. And note that I said (or did I?) - it is worth attention clearly because many like Olimpus, but main point was that FN is better, not that Olimpus "bad bad wolfy".

    A small update about the translation.

    19% translated for now but we are moving to Dungeon Rats translation.

    Anyway if you want to contribute - welcome.
