    Thanks for clarifying! Well it's an old mod that has been made easier to access, that's worth a mention I think? I can see that people have had problems before with the install.

    e: Unless you object of course!

    Lich: 13v Mod (Fallout 2)
    __________
    Name: 13v (mod for Fallout 2)
    Version: 1.0.3
    Language: US \ RU
    Author: Lich
    Release:
    ~2011
    Website: NMA
    Copyright: Bethesda Softworks LLC.
    __________
    Description:
    13v - Its Fallout 1 remake, or parody. Every npc have funny dialogs, there is few quests that lead to alternative game ending (mostly funny disaster). Quests are usually solved by find specific item (and its hidden in map), alternative endings.

    Lich: This mod is total conversion, alternate vision of Fallout1. It may look bit like low-budget parody but this style is result of my brainstorms about efficient way to make such big mod. At first point am deicided to explore more mapper possibilities instead of create any new graphics. Secondary, found that battles suck compare to later Fallout Tactic and deicided focus almost entirely on its best part; adventure. This lead me to two major problems later: how make big amount of scripts and dialogs.. above hundread of them! Writing scripts is relative fast, but not their testing thats why deicided to use the same copy of script for most of NPC with small different details in quests. Last obstacle was dialogs, huge amount of text could easy bore to death even toughest book reader. Thats why everywhere I put jokes, and plot is pretty crazy, often lead to unpredictable situations. Also am focus on replayability, and my concept is even better from classic game. There is no one destiny of player, every choices put him in different places where adventure end.

    Yes, yes, fine. I would like to ask you to not abuse the fucking report function just to get this done quicker; I also have a job that I need to do from time to time, and I'm sorry for the delay, but sometimes it might take a day or two until I can do your bidding.

    Would probably be easier to just make a new thread and link to the old one.

    There's no point in multiplying topics. One mod - one theme.
    Otherwise it will be like with Appearance mod and some other mods, that 3-5 themes and files scattered in a mess.

    Well, I can tell you that I won't keep updating every thread. Create a new one, we lock this one with a link to the new thread, and done. That's how it was always done and nobody ever cared much.

    You are the dedicated thread updater now. I'm going to ignore every request that comes my way. :salute:

    Can you explain the advantage of your approach? How is it better?
    Example: You don't make a new topic for the et-tu project with every patch.

    Suppose:
    • Many topics can be created, but if the average person who wants to play can't navigate and find the current version... that's not good.
    • If version 1 is listed in the first post, but version 1.2 is on page 27, and there is no link to it... it's not good.
    • And if these versions are in different themes, it complicates the search process.
    • Forum visitors don't ask where the link to the actual version is and there is less chance that they will ask a question about a bug that has already been fixed.
    • And it's just nice to have order.
    I am expressing my vision of the situation. Maybe your method is better... I don't know. If you ignore my requests for updates - it's ok. I didn't know about it.
    I hope for your understanding.

    You aren't the creator of this thread. It's kinda history revisionism when you change the first post of a thread you didn't start. Closing an old thread and making a new one is semi-standard in other fora as well. You just link to the new one at the end and done. Also, as you can see here and in the past already -- you always need to find someone who is willing to update the thread for you. This is more work and can get annoying fast, depending on the amount of updates. It's simply not a good system.

    Yeah it just ain't your thread bro. You did a mod of a mod so you get your own thread ideally in case the op comes back you don't take over his post. That is how dead forums like THIS ONE work where people leave and maybe come back or maybe not. Now if the op said "yeah take this shit over" that is different and maybe what you are talking about idk.

    Proletaren is definitely more of a people person so it is for the best.

    Either system would work fine I think, as long as people find what they are looking for.

    1. Understand, agreed, less action for moderators.
    2. If the author of the topic returns, it's good. He'll have a decorated theme.
    3. But the idea was precisely to design an existing theme to be comfortable, not to create a new one.
    - Asking for preferences to be able to update the first posts (after agreement, of course) probably makes no sense :) -

    Thanks for the clarification. The offtop can be deleted.
