    It is one of those projects that never go anywhere. Someone that has never opened the GECK thinks they can create a huge DLC sized mode, by getting other people to do all the work while they act as project lead. Notice how the trailers show nothing about the mod and how the mod page was taken down because it was just resources from other mod authors.

    Haha ok! I thought it was a bit odd that there were no gameplay to be seen.

    It seems like they're using TrickyVein's San Fran worldspace...
    San Fran was a personal mod that TrickyVein was working on his spare time with help from some other TTW devs a few years ago. There were plans to make it linked to TTW using the functional train that allows travel between wastelands. I was lucky to be included in that project and I must say that the world space was awesome.

    Even that picture included in that video is a picture Tricky took from his San Fran worldspace:

    I wonder if this "Dead Shock Studios" got permission to use Tricky's work. Maybe I should investigate this a bit.
    EDIT: Tricky released the worldspace to the community, since he moved away from the project but didn't want his and other people work on it be wasted.

    Now I got nostalgic and decided to share the very pre-alpha videos made by Tricky of San Fran:

    The presidential metro train from the Broken Steel DLC can be reversed and imported into New Vegas. I already imported the freight elevator from Anchorage that leads down to the Outcast bunker into a mod I'm working for New Vegas. It takes some time and its fucking annoying because a single mistake will break the scripts but its worth. And its not even an elevator. Technically the elevator never moves. It's the elevator shaft that is animated and moves up and down. Same with the train ride from Broken Steel. The player equips an item that is the same model from as the inside of the train and then a script makes you fly along a predefined path. It's all really interesting when you break it down but also really stupid the way they implemented some things.

    Bethesda's developers could not even program and animate an elevator?
    I knew that they resorted to some trickery to make the train work, but this?

    Yeez, and they continue to do this crap.
