Lisac2k strikes again, with a spiritual sequel to Beth the old hag, the Vault Rats mod:This is a small mod cosisting of one map, 9 NPCs, 3 main quests and bunch of references to... Well, to many issues (check out the List of Features for
more info). The idea came from the numerous previews of Fallout 3, which is currently in production, that struck the Fallout Fans who were eagerly waiting for the worthy sequel of their favourite game franchise for more than 10 years.
On the other hand, the mod has been made as a "from modders for modders" project, which should provide better overview in what way the Fallout 2 game can be modded and how a new, small mod can be released in just a few weeks (it took me less than two weeks to make this one). The script sources have been included, though I hadn't enough time to optimise them, so there's probably parts which are hard to understand. Nonetheless, I hope some of this mod's features will find their way into other mods, or at least sparkle a few of new ideas.
