    This is really excellent - lot more progress than any other Fo1/2 restoration mod I've seen.

    What is it with Russians that makes them so good with mods, anyways?

    So this is still in development, huh. Nice to hear. Though to be honest I don't really care much for F1 and F2 remakes made in the F3 or F4 engine. I think they are fine just as they are. I would rather have F1 and F2 with a bunch of UI improvements like Fonline. Another thing is no matter how hard these mods try, they are never able to capture the atmosphere and grit the old games have. I think it has something to do with how the engine looks.
