    Ausir at The Vault blogged some. A new piece of boggy FOOL concept art has been released and there have also been various forum goings-on.

    <center></center>
    For instance, asked one forum member:<blockquote>Will there be children in Fallout Online? And if so will they be indestructible?</blockquote>Answered Chris Taylor:<blockquote>Children will not be targets.</blockquote>But will they be able to dodge highly accidental flamethrower discharges as readily as you dodged those questions?

    Chris also wrote regarding the beta:<blockquote>There is no confirmation email. If you get the Thank You, you're in the database.

    The first mail to the list will be Coming Soon. We'll announce that here. If you don't get it, check your spam folder settings. If that's not there, your registration isn't in the database or your email is wrong. ^_^

    (...)

    Just signing up does not guarantee a beta slot. There will be follow-up questions and forms to help determine if/when people are added to the beta. The checkbox is to see if you are interested in the beta program. Not everyone has checked it, but the vast majority have.

    To be very honest, we've gotten way more people signing up much faster than we anticipated. That's causing us to rethink a few things regarding the beta.</blockquote>Among the forum goings-on is an interview with Eric Caen.<blockquote>Which area of game development do you feel is most important? (For example, plot, character development, graphics, etc)

    This is a tough one. It is like what is the most important in a cake? The quality of ingredients? The respect of the recipe? The precision of the oven temperature? Or everything? Maybe the most important is to create something that will entertain, will make people enjoying their time using it, and not only pretty graphics but dull story or bad controls!</blockquote>Haha! What?

    And sewers.

    And crates.

    There hasn't been enough crates in this concept art.

    I predict the first quest will send you to kill 10 rad-spiders and get their tails.

    I don't really like the art because the wheels in the front are very sharp while the trees looks like a simple photoshop spray-thing

    It's Concept Art, not necessarily what the game itself will look like.

    its unavoidable, even Rockstar who put 20million $ in their last title wont be able to avoid them in a MMORPG(or at least its tween brother the fedex quests), its only a question of how many.

    besides its beats shit shoveling and i know that for a fact i shit shovel for a living 8-)

    You know, rubber tires, just sitting there all in the open, would decompose in 50 to 80 years.

    Just saying.

    But if that's true then 90% of the clutter in Fallout 3 will disappear in a puff of logic!
    :V
    There were more tyres than people in that game.

    And that would be a bad thing? I wish I could use my logic gun to make most of the world disappear.

    I know this is terribly off-topic, but do you come from another forum by any chance? I say because I notice you use the :V smiley a lot, which reminds of a place where, well, they use it around in most posts. :P

    This reminded me, is there any clue to what time period in Fallout Online is used? (I'm not asking this to you specifically alec)
