    What would you say to mod like this one?
    So far I've made just one map (cabin) and a few scripts (dialogue with Rimmer), some cosmetic modifications and lots and lots of tinkering :) I'm new at Fallout script language, but I'm not new to programming at all, and so far I understood pretty every script I've randomly opened.
    I feel I'm getting into it and I'd like to become really good at it as you lot (I've been watching this category for a while)
    All I need or would like from you is i bit of support, e.g. ideas, suggestions, or just say to me to piss off :)
    Note: I certainly DON'T want (and I wouldn't succeed) to compete with some other mods, I just love to edit games of all kind (my favorite - freeware game Stranded 2, doubt anybody knows it)
    Here are some screenshots:


    <dont mind the cities names, as I said, I'm at the very beginning :)

    EDIT:
    Status:
    Critters art:
    Kryten (48/48) DONE
    Lister (0/~114)
    Rimmer (7/~20) <that ugly green color wont do
    Cat (0/~50)
    Maps:
    Done: 1/???
    Medi-bay
    (me dumb accidentally deleted that lovely cabin map you see bellow :D )

    Scripting:
    Done: ~0
    So far not good, but done A LOT of tinkering and I feel I'm getting into it ;)

    Keep yourself informed, I'll add more categories when I actually have some more :D ;)

    Looks interesting enough. What are you planning to do? That is, are you going to make the show into a game [completely utilizing the show's storylines] or a game set in the shows universe [New stories continuing the Red Dwarf Adventures]?

    Although I probably wouldn't want to play it (I'm hard-pressed to play FO2 nowadays) it may at least mean more custom assets for other modders.

    Good point, I will certainly not make actual episode adventures from the show, it means I'll make new ones (it means any idea would be welcomed), but I haven't decided about time of this all, probably about 3.-4. series (they still have Red Dwarf, already rescued Kryten).
    I understand you not wanting to play like 12 years old game, but if I had to decide whether mod Fallout 2 or 3/NW, Fallout 2 wins since it's my favorite PC game ever ;)

    Hi, HudaJan.
    While I'm not curious to see the Red Dwarf's universe placed into the Fallout background, still is very good to see an enthusiastic modder. :)
    Good luck!

    I LOVE the idea of this, I'm a huge dwarf fan, and as long as you don't smeg it up, should be a right bit of fun. so don't smeg it up.

    Hah! Good fun!

    I'd regurgitate jokes and scripts from Red Dwarf tho. Sure, it's "more original" to write it yourself, but it's also pretty hard, and just vaulting up from existing scripts works better.

    No.

    Such a mod for sure would be interesting.

    I'd play it. I'm also a dwarf fan.

    I can't see it getting completed... but I'll certainly have a glance at what is done.

    Talkie, and pollymorphs are a must as well as pleasure gelfs. If nothing else make it a blue dwarf game.

    The toaster already made it into one mod! :D

    Talking heads would be most amusing. As well as the planet of the nymphomaniacs. :crazy:

    I thought he was banned here now anyway?

    I don't get the point, who is Prosper?
    I`ll try not to be a smeg head :D But certainly I`ll do my best not to dissapoint you as a RD fan ;)
    Probably in a long long time, since (as I said) I'm new at all this FO modding, so expect me to bother you with lots of questions all over this category :|
    Pollymorph for sure ;), plesure gelf is good idea
    Yes, I thought about Holly. He would be cool. It shouldn't be problem to get graphics together since his face is very well seen in the show, however it would be problem about speech. I cant record my own voice, it wouldn't be Holly, i can't use his actual voice, since I don't personaly know the actor (suprisingly :D ) and his speech in the show isn't enough, cause Holly in my mod should be the main hint/quest-giver.
    Planet of nymphomaniacs is great idea, I'll consider it, but I'm afraid player would be stuck there not wanting to go ANYwhere else :D Also I could consider a planet entirely populated by air hostesses ;) And what about a moon shaped like Felicity Kendall's bottom? :D

    Anyway, thanks for your support everybody, it's good to see a forum where everyone isn't hostile, for a change :)
    Note: sorry about typos, typing on DK keybord-pain in the ass :P

    Why make it red dwarf? I recomend useing the blue dwarf as a setting, or some other ship entirely, so you don't need to worrie bout smegging up the voices.

    This mod will fail if you can't reproduce Red Dwarf's humor. Not an easy task.

    I'm willing to give it a shot though. :D

    Though I don't know "Red Dwarf" I say this sounds like fun. You got me with your startup screen already. ;)

    I'm going to make it red dwarf for sure, cause I like RD show and I want to use actual characters. I don't want to create new ones, cause I'd like to concentrate on plain modding, not making up new things. Consider it my first mod, so it could be like experiment ;)

    I'll do my best not to smeg up the humor, I'm also going to watch all episedes in english (since I'm not native speaker) and to catch as much as I can.

    Still didn't explain the thing about "Prosper" I'd like to know who is it ;)

    I'd suggest you keep it small and relatively simple. I think it will be difficult enough to pull off without making it overcomplicated.

    Good luck. :D
