    Well, apparently, they pissed in /v/'s wheaties for a few weeks on end, so when this came out, they got blasted into quitting. I feel bad for the lead dev and some of the other talented people, but some of these devs, especially Phobos, are just insufferable.

    the discord was very toxic. useing the transphobia shield, calling people that want the enclave natzis [ which is why i know that dev is lying during that interview.]. heck when zu was first found out they banned the guy who posted about it.

    7 years of hard work ruined by this degenerate motherfucker. Feel bad for the rest of the dev who worked on this.

    The mod was always going to end up kind of as this mish-mash of modding tropes, I think. Even early on it was pretty clear that it was going to be intended to be mechanically and visually dazzling but narrative-wise they were just kind of going to take the path of least resistance to get you from one huge cinematic battle to another.

    The mod and discord is one of the most entertaining trashfires in recent memory, also mod lead did so much deflecting it's hilarious.

    This mod clearly had no single vision to drive everything and make it a cohesive experience. Instead it's a mishmash of random bullshit with no consistency whatsoever.

    The proof of this is when people like Phobos started to blame the criticism of mod on the dev that worked on the NCR questline.

    Alot of this could of been prevented if they had editors to tell them no. But it was a free project made by people who aren't friends and they would of taken their ball and went home if you told them no.

    I don't think so, personally. The whole thing was too ambitious from the beginning and would have either ended up like this due to them accepting any freak that volunteered or as a more boring iteration of this where they either fill in all that space with nothing at all or with rushed and shitty quests that aren't fun even when they work.

    "Hey if you won't let me put all my disgusting fetish stuff in, I'll just take my scripts, animations and maps with me" something like that.

    Damn i didn't know people were shitting on this mod before me, i even made another thread, but anyway yeah this mod is a complete shitshow.

    First they handled the criticism and trolling ridiculousy poorly, specially by banning people from their discord for having a single negative opinion about the mod including a big fallout youtuber like TKSMantis, people that got mad over them calling enclave fans trump supporters also got banned.

    Afterwards it was revealed that one of their devs was a furry people that i shit you not, he actually made a post in furaffinity COMPLAINING about them not allowing CHILD PORN.

    They got scared shitless of getting their entire mod killed by the nexus staff so it was hidden and there's no way to download it anymore.

    And according to some other people their twitter and discord server got blown to shit as well and aren't returning anytime soon.

    Their stream was hilariousy bad, with them ignoring several emails and getting overwhelmed by people shitting on the mod, people even tried to take the stream down by trying to get them to say things like "america" and "cia"

    These same people said that "simply uncut" is a shitty unstable non-lore friendly by the way and one of the guys in the comment section of the simply uncut mod in nexus, said the mod was gonna be a buggy failure, which is some voodoo stuff lmao.

    Also the development team dispersed completey, i haven't seen a project go so horribly wrong.

    It still would of been bad, but not the shit show it is currently.

    Pretty much. From what I heard Devil's Wish the writer for the NCR questline basically held the mod hostage. He didn't want to make any changes and if he left there would be no mod.

    What about the Nebraska Enclaves and the Sheboygan branch of the Brotherhood of Steel?

    ""Subject E: Diagnosis complete. Begin Recording.
    My name is Whitley. I'm a researcher at Adams Air Force base. Until recently I was in charge of the Duraframe reinforcement project for the combat model Eyebots.
    Eyebot Duraframe Subject E is both the prototype, and the last functional model in this test group.
    I was prepared to make several significant upgrades to the machines.
    However, as the project was canceled and all Duraframe assets are being diverted to Hellfire Armor, I am sending this model to the Navarro outpost.
    If you are listening to this log from one of our Enclave Outposts in Chicago, give this unit whatever repairs it needs so it can continue to Navarro.""

    People make a mountain out of a molehill with that line. The next most significant branch outside of Adams Air Force Base was Navarro, which was why it was ED-E's destination and not the much closer Chicago Outpost. If you recall, Navarro really wasn't that huge, being an outpost in and of itself. If Chicago was only a pitstop on the way to an outpost, I imagine that "outpost" in the city was very, very small.

    Only mods I think will be good is Sonora and mutants rising. Seems like nufallout is cursed to have shitty TC mods. Maybe Cascadia will be good? Can't tell because there is very little footage. They seem to be doing the right things. Like going back to the traditional leveling system in old Fallout and using the classic dialogue system. I wish it is the new vegas of mods but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Fallout miami has cool art direction and looks pretty. But that's about it. The enclave and sole survivor is a turn off for me. It feels like it is made by people that think Fallout is about the wackiness and not the post apocalypse.

    Navarro is smol yet can spread its tentacles across the whole state, them vertibirds travel to New Reno outskirts and up to V13, for one. I think a smaller outpost within a ruined city can be important and influencial enough within Chicago limits. Being an agent of enclave in a little different setting is an opprtunity to tell an interesting story.
