    In case you're tired of just doing the same quests over and over while tinkering with the systems and graphics of Fallout: New Vegas over and over, or you simply want an excuse to redownload the game on Steam, you might want to check out the beta release of the first installment of Project Brazil.

    The mod, which will have three installments in total, is a total conversion of Fallout: New Vegas with a new storyline taking place around Los Angeles and Vault 18, in 2260. The mod, at least going by the summary on ModDB, seems to make heavy use of elements of the Fallout canon and older factions, with NCR, super mutants and the Enclave all making appearances. Given I haven't even downloaded the mod yet, it's difficult to say whether the writing makes good use of these elements or if it's bad fanfiction material.

    In case you check the mod out, let us know what you think about it!

    Neat, will try this. Does anyone know if it's compatible with Josh Sawyer's mod?

    It's called Project Brazil because the main quest line revolves around getting people to "gib u gold"

    huehuehue

    That's such a horrible joke... but I'll admit it. I laughed.

    If the mod follows their development bible completely, I probably won't like the storyline in later installments much. Maybe I'm just not into those Sci-Fi reference materials. :\

    Based on the document, the mod seems to be rather linear. Also I am really not a fan of this enclave & survivor stuff. Then again, I am not much a fan of enclave yet again anyway... Especially as the player seems to be able to join them?

    Sounds like fo3 fanboy's fallout fantasy mod.
    I really wonder they have played 1 or 2.

    I am downloading it right now. Won't be talking bad about it if I haven't played it by myself.


    /Edit:

    Right at the start...

    +The intro is superb. Very well done for a mod. I like it a lot.
    +The voice acting is great so far. At least as good as the main game, imo. Though I haven't heard many people yet.
    +Mapping seems not bad so far. Still Vault interior, though.
    +General presentation is very good.

    -I already hate this "survivalist" faction stuff.
    -Player was adopted and taken to the Vault or something? Vault is in a fight with NCR? Is this some Enclave whatever vault? Ehw.
    -The game is pre-defining a "nerd" or "brawler" path for me and is adjusting my SPECIAL attributes with a perk depending on what path I chose.
    -In the same vein, I apparently cannot chose my own tag skills.

    /Edit: Oh my god, awkward dating simulator? Few minutes into the game and I already convinced two chicks that I am a super fancy guy who they would love to hang out with with my super cheesy football-douchbag-pro-player language skills. Yeah, I really do feel like one of these football douchebags from old 80s kids movies, where the weak hero nerd guy is being bullied by the pro athlet baddie. I'll guess it's the style they wanted to hit with it?

    Graphic wise it is still pretty good, though.

    /Edit: Aaaand I am stuck. Can't end the prequel, it freezes my player on the bed. No idea how to get around that.

    Yeah it's explained on the main mod page..
    but, it's just a name, no meaning behind it. Author said he was watching the movie Brazil when he first started working on it, and when he polled the community on whether or not to change the name, the community chose to keep it Project Brazil.

    I used this patch already. Still lots of bugs there, though.

    He wrote "almost" at least. But yeah, there have been at least two I can recreate: 1. When I am at the home of this Jennifer Hale chick and her daddy tells me I should bang her - if I then talk to Jennifer, the dialog with her dad will loop till humanitys end... And 2. if I want to go to bed to end the prequel I just can't advance, regardless of what I am doing.

    depends what your daughter looks like. If shes more a pig then human, then yes, good parenting. If shes a diamond, then you have to hide it of course, because are you giving your treasures to the next stranger? Of course not. That would be crazy.

    What if she's inbetween?

    [spoiler:843e32b1ee]
    Like, not beautiful but not fugly either, she's just... Normal looking, average, nothing perculiar.

    D. "Thanks for installing my TV, I'm really bad at electronics so this would've taken me days if not a whole week to get working."

    M. "No problem, it actually took me 5 days of clicking around with the remote to understand everything, so I know how frustrating it can be".

    D. "Well, as thanks, if you're interested: my daughter is upstairs listening to music."

    M. "O-Okay...?"

    D. "Well, yknow, just as thanks for helping me out I'm giving you permission to nail her, I'll go to the pictures and watch that new kung-fu film so you can have some privacy."

    M. "Well that's not-"

    D. "Honey!"

    L. "What?"

    D. "Maverick wants to talk to you!"

    M. "No really this isn't-"

    D. "All right then, if she likes you then I'm sure you'll have lots of fun, toodles!"


    I'm gonna be a great dad.[/spoiler:843e32b1ee]

    On a more ontopic note: How's the writing and RPG mechanics in it? Is it worth checking out?
