    So this is an attempt to recreate Fallout New Vegas in the "Fallout" 4 engine. As demonstrated in the video they have brought back skills and traits. If they manage to get this done within a short enough time span it will be a huge achievement.

    The benefit over good ol' New Vegas would be the better gun play and AI.

    I mean, I don't hate the idea. However, IT seems like a huge waste of time to me. Mods like project Nevada, weapons of millenia, EVE would have to be ported or made from scratch. Fully modded new Vegas is already very good.

    I'm not going to buy a copy of Fallout 4 just to play New Vegas - I already have New Vegas. If you already had Fallout 4, that's why we can't have nice things, and you don't deserve New Vegas.

    So it seems kinda pointless.

    I admire what they already did (bringing back skills, Vegas perk menu and intro), but I don't feel that they succeed.

    We've had FO1 and 2 in NV and the recent FO3 in FO4, but everyone eventually burned through their enthusiasm and those mods got cancelled.

    The Fallout 2 in NV is still going strong. I keep in contact with their team.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that mod is called "The way of Chosen". Made by the "Molten Clouds" team.

    Yeah I also tend to agree that these ambitious projects in general never get finished because they turn out to big or to long for even a very enthusiastic modding team to be finished. Remember Fallout Lonestar? (the actual mod, not the dream project I would like to make)

    Fallout New Vegas for Fallout 4 is perhaps still ongoing but I expect that within the next six months we will get the message that the project is temporarily being paused because team members have Real Life matters they have to deal with and that then he project will eventually be cancelled.

    Kind of a shame that Fallout 1 for FNV got cancelled because I had wanted to see it, especially if it had brought back some of the cut material from FO1 and perhaps even added some new material.

    The way of the Chosen, I found out about this one rather late. I really would like to see it get finished but I don't hold my hopes up.

    Did they implemented an actual dialog system ?

    Huh? It won't be hard to port weapon mods from Fallout 4 into Fallout 4: New Vegas. Weapons of Millenia will be easily outclassed by Fallout 4's superior animation systems. EVE as well.. Project Nevada is the only thing.

    Nobody cares enough about FO1 or FO2 to have good community support/outreach to have it ported into the shitty Gamebyro engine that Fallout NV uses. Sorry, tough truths. Fallout 3 got cancelled because they didn't want to re-do the dialogue themselves, but F:NV as evidenced by this video are obviously doing just that. If I could donate to Fallout 4:NV, I would.

    If anything i'm glad Fallout 3 remake got canned, I hope the modders that are still enthusisatic about recreating a Fallout game in the 4 engine shifted their talent over to the Fallout: NV remake.

    I read this summary of the mod status on the Codex. Sound pretty sweet:

    i remember saying somewhere that this mod will never happen. looks like they're going to shut my mouth and i really hope they will. new vegas on F4 engine would be one of the best things ever

    one thing that bothers me is the voice acting. i understand that they can't use the original files but the voice acting in the intro sequence wasn't good. i think it would be better to leave it out and put the resources in other areas

    Does anyone know if they will add the cut Legion content/add the east Colorado part of the map? If they will develop Legion as nicely as New Vegas did the NCR, I'll worship the creators of this mod for many years.

    I think it is unlikely, the Legion material was dropped very early during FNV's development. There is little known of what the Legion territory would have been like.

    I also meant just adding more world space. Besides, videos like this one show, in my opinion, that there is something to ''restore''. But yeah, realistically speaking modders will have to invent much portion of that content. I prefer Van Buren version of the Legion though, where they are much less misogynistic and they use female agents. Makes more sense. Sawyer did admit on his tumblr that they would've made Legion different now.

    Yeah but that sounds more out of the sake of what is "acceptable" now rather than because of artistic vision.

    What they should have shown in FNV were the female priestesses who served Caesar, or perhaps the Daughters of Hecate should also have been included as a source of trouble for the Legion, secretly working behind the scenes to make the Legion weaker through their knowledge of genetic selection (switching healthy babies with sick or weak ones) while their male soldiers the Hounds of Hecate ambushes groups of Legionnaires.

    I don't think Caesar had female agents as in female Legionnaires but his organization did employ female bounty hunters from the outside.

    I'm not too sure about that. Did you mean that nowadays you can't make a game that features misogynistic characters?

    I agree with the second part, but it comes down to conclusion that more content is what Legion needed and still needs. Yes, by agents I meant secret agents like Trisha. Bounty hunters too, and a female Courier can work for Legion too. Caesar is highly pragmatic, he won't stick to his own rules if that would cause his failure. Anyway, working for Legion as a woman and being paid while still being free is arguably better than being a legionnaire.

    https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/64337 <- do you know this mod? I'm definitely waiting for it. New land, at least one Legion town, Mars priestesses and more!

    Yeah, if the journalists don't get all PC then it is the loud crowd on twitter, even if the misogyny makes sense.

    I am not saying you are wrong but a little more context/information would have been needed. Does she know what status women have inside the Legion while trying to gain Caesar's favor or is she ignorant of it?
    Could be that if the player had learned about the Legion and how women are treated and tell Trisha this that she might change her mind.
    It doesn't mention if she was recruited by the Legion to begin with, that is kind of important to know in this case.

    Probably very vaguely but I have not been following it because these mods often tend not get finished.
