[ Mod -> Update ] - More info on Mod: Fan Made Fallout

While you'll have to wait at least 6 months for Fallout 3, Fan Made Fallout is going to make you wait at least another three! They've made a big news post celebrating their 4th year on the job and even have a graph of the number of forum posts they've made. Here's the bad news:

The poor performance of the first three years can also be blamed on poor management. Systems we've developed now (that have evolved over the course of those few years) are holding us in good stead and bode well for the future of the project. However, we'll need many more new members to join in and help out if we plan on getting this project finished. As we progress however, it's becoming clearer that we WON'T be making our self-imposed July 1st 2007 deadline. At the rate of our current progress, that deadline could be pushed back as far as 2009. I won't be making an official announcement about that or choosing a new deadline until mid this year though, when things will be much clearer and our ability to do what we hope to achieve will be more easily ascertained.

The good news is that there's also a model of a talking head and some FMF imagey thing in the news post as well but as I'm the Project Leader of FMF, I'm going to make you go over there to see them.

As always, they're asking for more members, so go on and join if you're interested. Happy 4th birthday FMF.

YOu seriously set a release date for July 1st, 2007? Its not even a year close yet and you are already delaying it. YOu guys should just kick it into overtime and release it this summer or something. Perhaps you can make a thread for forum members to write the dialog for a character, make it like a community project. Each NPC would of the flavor of someone else, it wont be OMG PROFFESIONAL quality like your writing but it will get the shit done and sense of pride in the community.

I think there is still(?) others making fallout mods, perhaps you can tell them to work with you or die.

Sounds like you guys aren't getting anywhere.

So, forum posts = progress? May I remind you that DAC hasn't progressed since Susan decided to start spamming.

Good luck, I guess.smile

Yes.

Pardon, release what this summer? It's not like we have anything to release. Unless you meant giving everybody access to the development forums.

POOPERSCOOPER wrote:

We already let everybody who's willing write dialogues. With the exception for those who suck.

POOPERSCOOPER wrote:

It already is.

POOPERSCOOPER wrote:

That's unavoidable as long as you have many different dialogue writers. Which we have.

POOPERSCOOPER wrote:

I seriously doubt that.

POOPERSCOOPER wrote:

We already have that too.

The other major fallout 2 mod in the making is Mutants Rising, with whom we already cooperate. Not as in sharing dialogue writers, but as in helping out with management problems and other issues that arise.

Thanks for your consern though, it was very helpful. Now we can probably release FMF a few years sooner.

Show us proof that you guys actually have some work done on FMF. I think you guys just worked hard for a week and made some maps and NPCs.

Be nice POOPERSCOOPER.

I give FMF my blessings, as should we all.

Try contributing some material yourself (i.e. write some dialogue).

Why? (damn, Bloodlust beat me to it!)

Seems like your thoughts about the FMF project is about as high as mine about you.

Thank the Lord.

He already offered his help once. Appearantly his wallet wasn't big enough though:

Ignore that, as my human specific super virus will be ready for field testing as of 2007. Ergo, the buttons will likely remain neglected and untouched. icon_drunk
