    Heh.. I missed this thread somehow previously.

    I too have been working on a bug-fix patch for Fallout 1.

    It's going along slowly, as first, I've got to learn this stuff as I go. Right now I'm concentrating mainly on scripts and dialogues (mostly because I've got those figured out better than say how the hell to get mapping working well for FO1 maps =p)

    The other reason it's not quick is that I have to re-re-re-play the game while doing this to find, fix, then test everything until I'm satisified that it not only works, but works in as many potential situations as I can thnk of (varried stats -especially INT, possible exploits, etc etc.)

    Anyways.. lol :)

    That is why I made this thread - so people can post bugs and other "bad things" they come across instead of me trying to test every possible situation.

    Then you should swear a Pact of Brotherhood and jioin forces!

    (Also, only the fenced area was Adytum. The Blades and Followers area (the library) should be referred to as Boneyard.)

    Tnx Raven for mentioning us (part of Team-X). But i think we should first of all finish translation of Mod back to English, and purified mod from errors , and only then as say Silencer "...jioin forces" on this foundation

    The TeamX's patch sounds like a mod. The storyteller Agatha, for example - I had a thought of adding her myself, but since I found no "stories" for her to tell in her .msg file, either I would have to write them myself (thus making the patch a mod), or leave the Agatha as she is - just an NPC who doesn't really do or say anything important. That, plus the fact that she wasn't put in the original game made me decide against it.

    I do not want to "improve" the game by adding new stuff, I just want to make it [more] playable and maybe a bit more realistic - so that players can enjoy the original Fallout the way it was, minus the bugs/glitches, inconsistencies, etc., and maybe plus a bit of realism.

    It Is a Mod. Raven was wrong. it's current status are mod v. 1.2.5

    Again. it's not a NEW stuff. these all NPC's planned and they was in project but as always with problem of insufficient time BIS rejected all of them. We just did Fallout1 more alive, returning they back.

    If these planned characters where never really completed, you would *have* to add new stuff if you want to bring them back the way they were intended. For example, what about the Agatha the storyteller? Does she tell any stories to player? If yes, where do they come from? If no, I don't see any point in bringing her back...

    She still doesn't tell story, but it's a question of time, because mod is not completed too :)
    Point in bringing her back (also as all others NPC's) is to make good game fuller, atmospheric to sate with new characters.

    Nice stuff you have here. I hope you can finish it.

    It seems Junktown can get a bit messy if you try to solve the quests in unusual way. I'll just give an example.

    I took the quest to assassinate Killian. I told Killian I had been hired to kill him and took the quest to get Gizmo's confession. I snuck to Killian's bedroom, waited until he came and killed him. I snuck out, unseen by the guards and took the reward from Gizmo.
    Then I talked to Lars. He asked me for help getting rid of Gizmo. Since I didn't return Gizmo's confession to Killian, I believe he shouldn't. I accepted, and guess who helped us kill Gizmo? Killian. Alive and kicking. Now that was too much for me. :roll:
