    Pretty sure that can be coded in. The randomized loot system already exists in those worldmap cave encounters

    It always kind of interested me to see fallout having a more randomized loot mechanica. Also based for example on outdoorsman and luck. In a ballanced way ofcourse. No bazookad in klamath for example. I did believe it was also planned by dudeobj (modder). Anyway, not the topic for it.

    Glad this is being made - I can't wait to play it when it's done.

    I drink soy milk and I acknowledge NV/1/2 are far superior to 3/4/76.

    The New Vegas one is quite new. I made a thread about it.

    thb its the least one I look forward too. Yesterday as my heart.
    While the unity one looks nice, I dont see it getting far honestly.
    If the vegas one got a whole team, I guess they can make it work. Modding vegas is relative easy.

    I think Fallout - Yesterday seems like it is the most likely to get finished. Mod authors of the New Vegas mod said in Discord that it is going to take a lot longer than a few years. Fallout - New California and Fallout - The Frontier took about 7 years each, that is if I'm not mistaken. With that in mind, New California is known for being pretty light on side content and The Frontier is known for being pretty linear. Project Van Buren, the mod author has said at least once on twitter that he wishes he knew the answer to the question of whether or not he will complete the project. Fallout - Yesterday on the other hand seems to be getting the most progress done when it comes to actually implementing the design docs.

    You need to descent to the lower floor and investigate. Try crafting some support planks.

    I did, and I am trying to place them somewhere, but I keep clicking around on everything, nothing seems to help. Is there a specific pixel I'm supposed to hit or what?

    You need to craft 4 planks and either break or unlock the door to the room where the pit is.

    You're serious?
    what do you work for, that you can't afford few USD a month?!
    Congian dollars?
    If so then let me give you a pro tip:
    bananas from your country are worth *A LOT* more in the western world than your money, so how about starting your own buisness and sell bananas to the western world. You'll make enaugh money to pay for what's behind the paywall in no time....
    /oftoppic

    Anyways @hexer
    I'm anxiously waiting for R4 same as for other ongoing TC projects on Fo2 Engine.
    Best of Luck

    As for the patreon.. I'm not that interested in "behind the scenes" stuff, and I'm paranoid about security when it goes for banking, so stuff like patreon is out of the question for me. However If You'll consider some additional donation route, that for example accepts something like paysafecards, I might pour some dough your way from time to time ( when I'd remeber), nothig big, as I'm in no way a Rockefeler, but at least a way of saying 'thank you' for the time already spent on this title.

    I'm not Polpro, but I definitely can't spare a few USD a month.
    I have to follow a strict budget or otherwise the alternative is becoming homeless. I already don't eat breakfast, and sometimes I have to skip lunch or dinner too :shrug:.

    Each person has their own set of circumstances. Maybe Polpro's in a very different life situation than most other people.

    Hah, if it weren't for Patreon and people's donations, I wouldn't even be writing updates. I prefer working on the game much more.
    But since you asked, why not answer... R4 is cca 60% complete! We're on track with everything and ahead of schedule with some stuff but the bottleneck is coding all that in as I am the only one doing that. Nowadays, Fallout 2 programmers are like Bigfoots. You might see or hear about one, but you won't be able to catch him :D

    Thank you, for defending/understanding me while I wasn't here. Won't go to personal details here.

    Thank you Hexer for an update, good luck to you and your crewmates.
