    Eh, Enclave is a played out. Now the player stumbling upon an old forgotten Enclave facility that in game doesn't Identify itself as one but as a facility of the United States of America is far more interesting.

    Also Sheyboygan Brotherhood of Steel. they will have cheese hats on their helmets.

    I agree 100%. Unlike Frontier, I’m actively following the development of Cascadia. I won’t get my hopes up too much, but I will give credit to the writers though, they seem to be well versed in the lore of both the new and original games, and have pretty good concepts in their mod’s lore. I’m also fuckin’ ecstatic that they aren’t gonna go and milk preexisting factions for once. Like I said earlier, the only well-known faction in the mod will be the NCR, which I’m fine with because it takes place in 2329, 50 years after NV so I wouldn’t put it past them to spread up there. Even then they said the NCR are basically just spectators to the plot between the original factions they’ve made. Even the BOS is absent from this mod aside from a nod to them thank GOD. Here’s to hoping.

    I’m interested in Sonora too, however I literally have no clue what the hell that mod is about or what’s in it aside from that it’s made by the people who made Nevada, which I personally wasn’t the biggest fan of. I’ll play it for sure though.

    I know it is small potatoes compared to all the other crap in the mod but why the fuck is Ceaser's Legion in Oregon fighting the NCR? like do the devs not know the layout of the US or something?

    I don't think they really cared, they just said "Fallout 3 COD in the snow! :^DDD"

    Can this mod even be rewritten? Is it even worth it? Unlike New California, it barely even has a plausible story to go off of.

    The only thing of worth to salvage from this mod are the technical aspects, mainly the vehicles. Everything else is disposable.

    I'm gonna take back what I just said, just watched some videos that are related to fallout frontier, and I gotta say, the dev team is quite pathetic.

    Because that was the easiest way for them to set up huge battles, which was more or less the main point of the entire mod.

    Couldn't go to Colorado or Utah? make way more sense than fucking Oregon, considering it is part if the NCR and not actually the frontier.

    Even Utah and Colorado wouldn't make sense. I mean fuck it, if you're going full fanfic territory why not have the story set after an NCR victory at Hoover Dam and have the thing be in Phoenix or Flagstaff with the NCR taking the fight to the Legion. Then your mary-sue NCR and Legion leaders might make sense. Could even have multiple factions in the fractured Legion to choose from to make them more alluring.

    Would even justify the Brotherhood of Steel as a third party with the progression of the NCR-BoS conflict. An NCR that is beginning to really lose steam with its over-bloating, a fractured post-Casear Legion and a Brotherhood of Steel looking to make tactical advantage of the raw chaos.

    I can buy a NCR expedition deep in Colo-tah and the Legion had a deep strike team attack that one place from lonsome road. hell Van Buren had both messing around in those regions. with proper writing one could probably make sense with it. and that is where we hit the road block and got fucking Oregon.

    The thought process regarding the location probably wasn't much more complicated than "Oregon = Snow and Snow is the opposite of Desert which will make it interesting"

    I think they've kind of said as much. Nothing's wrong with the location itself, it's just that they should have used different factions.

    This is so fucking weird, if you want trigger warning stuff just put it in the options menu to filter out certain content or something... this kind of stuff is immersion breaking for everyone, including the people its trying to help.

    Please think for a second before jumping on the bandwagon. There are questionable content in the mod but this is not about it.
    This whole thing was a disgusting troll attack by 4chan.

    They photoshoped devs' posts and messages, harassed people and incited hatred by exaggerating facts.
    You don't like a mod you criticize it, not try to destroy it.

    Even if this is true the mod is dogshit based on it's own merits and would be the subject of ridicule even without all the background shit with the devs.

    Also since we are on the topic of fun mod ideas that are better than The Frontier, I have always had this idea of a prospector-centric DLC-sized adventure where The Courier finds themselves as part of a team of scavengers going through some pre-war site untouched since The Great War that basically serves as a mega-dungeon. Gradually as the story goes on more and more segments of the dungeon are unlocked as The Courier and their companions learn of the terrifying secrets this place hides.

    No, the mod is shit.

    I saw Rimmy's vid on it. He ain't no 4channer. I saw the Furry artist's porn on Derpibooru, of Twilight licking Spikes snake dick. I don't know how much is true about some programmer holding the rest of the mod hostage for his magicalrealm stuff, but from Rimmy alone ( I really don't give a damn about some furry fuck doing furry porn) the mod was a mess.

    to be fair the mod devs provoked 4chan first by shilling their mod then getting offended when /v/ told them it was bad.

    I heard that the programmer drew stuff of a MLP version of Jesus from The Big Lebowski exposing himself to a younger pony. So yeah, this mod is cursed.
