It has come to my attention that people dont know what The Wastes is.

For a start, the homepage:
http://www.planethalflife.com/thewastes/infomatic.shtml

Now, a basic rundown. The Wastes is a Post-Apocolyptic First Person Shooter, loosely related to Fallout and the Fallout World. The point that near every player of TW will tell you, it is NOT Fallout Half-Life. It has some parts from Fallout, but is not to be mistaken with a title from Interplay. It is continuously changing, updating and improving. It is a Mod for Half-Life. For more information, see the site.

i hope this helps and more people decide to post here.

thank you. icon_razz

The Wastes isn't actually related at all to fallout nor the fallout world. Although one of the player models is based upon or the teams homage to the vault dweller, thats where it ends on any similarities. If you are going to "clarify" for people goose, get it right.

DinoX, he said related, not based on. It is somewhat related to the Fallout world as well as the Mad Max world and a few other references too. It uses these things as inspiration. You don't have to be so nitpicky about this, damnit.

hmmm...last I checked Shady Sands (one of the maps in TW) is a town in Fallout. There's also a number of Vault-Tec signs taken directly from the same game. One of the other maps looks surprisingly like a Vault.

The Wastes is about 1/4 Fallout, 1/4 Mad Max, 1/2 Wasteland
