    Title says it all. Firstly: thank you to all the past and current FOT modders, all the hard and amazing work that you have done is greatly appreciated! :clap: Secondly: I have decided to become a modder myself and will brush up on the skills required. My first plan is to generate a mod that extends especially the high level gameplay of the original game (i.e. more maps/missions) and tweaking the item progression (a few new items and some rebalancing of said items).

    Eventually I plan to mod Fallout 1 and 2 as well, but for now I will stick with FOT, since there are sadly so few mods for this gem of a game. And yeah, I love FOT! I believe it is a terribly underrated game. It is ofc not as good as F1&F2 (then again...very very few games are, even F3 and FNV are trash compared to F1&F2 to be honest), but it still captures for me that "vibe" of F1&F2 and I love the engine Microforte used.

    So yeah, that’s just me introducing myself. I will definitely hang around here with the FOT modders. To those working on your own FOT modding projects: don't give up! Take your time (there is no rush, it is after all unpaid time you are giving), but please don't abandon your projects; there is so much awesome fun gameplay that can be generated via FOT modding (as Awaken and FOT: Enclave have shown)!

    I also really appreciate the guys that are making awesome sprites and other novel material and making it available to other modders for their projects! You guys rock!

    So that's it; into over! Time to get modding!

    Dude, I like your style and wish you the very best of luck.

    The Fallout Tactics modding system depends entirely on what you wish to create. Most basic ways of modding through the editor are easy to adjust to quickly and with some intelligence (which you clearly have) almost anything is possible. Everything that is hard to understand or difficult to find solutions for, I turn to this community. There are a lot of us modding in entirely different aspects of game development. With a few friends, your task may just become easier.

    I hope you enjoy your dive into the depths that is Fallout Tactics modding and hope to hear about your projects in future.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I am still inexperienced with the modding of FOT, but will be learning as I go along. This forum and the links in the FAQ are wonderful resources in this regard!

    Welcome to the FOT Mod community and Good luck with your project Phillon.

    Thanks for the encouragement. The FOT Editor is kind of like having a little Digital Lego-block set that I still enjoy building with... My Mod will never be abandoned and will be released but I am taking my time on my MOD as it's become kind of a labor of love for me over the years and I want to release a finished product that is bug free and playable.

    I will say that I am on the Final stretch on my mod and hope to release it soon.
