Current team lineup: Ilove3D (mapper), The Brazilian Slaughter (gameplay designer), Vaarna_Aarne (writer), grotsnik (writer), Whisky (writer), Kamoho (writer), Kane Vollstrecker (inventory art), hexer (everything else)

Hello mutants!

As you can see our team has grown. We finally found another FOnline mapper who is currently finishing Twin Mothers area. TBS joined us to help with SPECIAL and overall gameplay changes. He'll also contribute as a designer for one area.

We found a professional VO actor for our intro, end game slides, and perhaps a talking head or two.

And now for something unexpected! During our last Skype session, the team came up with the following idea - the player can play the game as either a ghoul or a super mutant! I personally can't wait to try out something different for a change.

I've been very busy making new art lately. Because there is so much of it, I'm sleeping no more than 5 hours a day. But that is the price I have to pay if I want to deliver! Currently, my game installation folder is already over 3 Gb but still there's much to be done.

P.S. We are looking for people that know how to make isometric game scenery or 3D movies.

See you around!

Super Mutant and Ghouls being playable were referred to in the docs in a few places, but there was little elaboration aside from a few references of NPCs being paranoid about you in certain areas. It was something that fans have always wanted to do, so we felt that it would be a worthy endeavor.

I hope to make both choices have a lot of reactivity from NPCs.

Yep, if your companions can consist of ghouls and super mutants then there's no issue with you being one of them.
It won't break the story or anything and it's worth the extra effort.

I'm hoping playable super mutants can get armor better than combat armor level (which is as far as Marcus grows in FO2 afaik).

The immunity is purely a technicality due to the fact the main effect of the virus doesn't even do anything to them. Born Ghouls are a different matter.

I'd say that since we have crafting in the game, anything's possible.
Actually, the most powerful (pre-War) equipment can be acquired only through crafting.

I like having different "races" playing in different ways... like Super-Mutants relying more on hit points and resistances than armor.

I suck at 3D, sorry.

:thumbsup:

As for crafting - any chances to implement something like schematics from Arcanum?

As items because I didn't like the crafting system in Arcanum.

Yes, there are schematics to be found on holodisks and elsewhere (don't won't to spoil it for you!)

Lovely stuff! :)

Fallout NV dlc dabbled with Cyborg upgrades, will Van Buren feature something similar?

Yes! Cyborgs and cybernetic implants are part of the Fallout world from Fallout 1 and we plan on allowing you to play as a cyborg.

Yay! <(^_^)>

Will it need Fallout 1 or 2 to run? Or will it be Standalone like C&C Twisted Insurrection?

You'll have to make some tremendous work if you wanna forge all these things like super mutant, ghoul or cyborg main character into F3 flawlessly, not just skin and animation and different features and characterictics but a great writing and different behavior of many NPCs (even extra design work) and let's be honest, F3 was not supposed to be played like that. Also you'll have to guess how NPCs would react to non-human main character which may cause a quility loss and you'll have to make way more content and likely even extra quests if you want it to be interesting expirience. If you realise all that and ready - go ahead. Maybe it's just me who can't imagine all this done into comprehensive story.

Since your VB companions can be super-mutants and ghouls, I don't think there will be any bigger problems with you being one of them. BIS designers already noted down any special reactions regarding them in the docs.

You will need Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

Alrighty then.
Wish you the best with your project, must be helluva lot of work to be done.
Not quite sure, but maybe you can use some recources of this abandoned mod: http://www.nma-fallout.com/showthre...0-is-fan-made-on-line-RPG-based-on-NWN2/page3

I dunno. I think he's cautious because big Fallout mods have a history of epic fails.
He's welcome to join us at any time.

Because he's been there, done that. And has plenty of other shit he needs to do without taking on anything else.

I have Fallout 2 but not Tactics.

Do GOG distribute it?

My Laptop died a little while back but I'm getting a replacement soon.

I really have great admiration for guys and gals like you that work on Van Buren, LoK: Blood Omnicide etc.

I'd really like to pay back all the hard work and dedication you guys put in.

I have no experience in modding sadly but I would be willing to learn and help out once I have a Computer again.

Do you have any reccomendations on how to get started for a newbie? :)
