    In begining concept this mod was prior build to make new areas. Mostly small and medium, interesting and crazy like random encounters. Now i got ideas about making large dungeons. Like in Might&Magic game when you walk on world and sometime found building with deep labirynth. I like this rpg concept and maybe make this in fallout world. Not every underground levels will be vaults. It may be some industrials or.. metro. But this must got some sense. So write here ideas about undergrounds.

    I'd like to see another army base like (but not the same as) Sierra, myself.

    Well, assuming my ideas are good, why ruin it for everyone who chances upon this thread, right?

    I'm pretty sure he has said it's on the Fallout2 worldmap, only some changes, new locations, etc. And you are not the chosen one, but somebody else...?

    Yes, its alternate Fo2 world. You got private goal, not save world.

    Well its possible start game in any worldmap location as any person. For example you can start game in New Reno as boxer. But my story will be more complicated i think.

    ColJack: MR is actually riding a wave crest at the moment. Both of us are still with the team. :)


    Lich: Have you decided on how you start the game? Boxer? MP? You've tossed quite few ideas around.

    You will be just come from desert man, some unknown that change world. Start game as nobody give much more possibilities- you can chose own primary quest. It is best story concept for rpg games because you can be and do whatever you want.

    So probably you start game in this horizon-arizona desert without any plot.

    Realistic world depend on possibilities

    Already i am curious about Baldursc Gate1 mods, especially "Northern Tales of the Sword Coast where lot of new locations was add- see this map for example.

    That gives possibility to gain more experience, but to use it in Fallout all random fights must be deleted from game so you will search new adventures as only known source of exp.

    -remove from game all random fights when walk on worldmap (also remove shops)
    -add lot of new locations to standard game, where you can gain exp and items

    So that make different, better way to play game, already most exp and equipment was taken from random fights. When this will be changed- you must visit all locations, made all quests to be superhero.

    Other thing: It is possible to finish F2 game in fev minutes, so story must be more complicated, anyway made all game more hard and realistic.

    Mod will bring fresh and hardnes that make desire to play again whole game. Already i try finish BG1 game using just one person (play without team) from begining to end, game is more hard but that increase playability. So the same i try use making F2 mod i think more difficulty make game better. Especially when you play before.

    Black Steel looks like a mercenary's paradise.

    Fuck the chosen one genre, time to strike on your own.

    More bizzare random encounters are needed, like stumbling into a plot of ghouls and mutants minding an orchid of apples and fruits.

    Or some hidden facility where human's process other humans (the lost, the homeless and such and turn them into food. Soylant Green anyone?)

    Mostly locations are one level- so why add some extra new ones?
    So i got idea to just extend already exist locations to new areas.
    In every known locations possible to find something new areas.
    Its good idea for example because
    -you not must use city limit path
    -new locations will not ruine world that you known before, just walk to areas that was curious like cave under bridge in Arryo or big hole in temple Arryo
    -cities will be large that known and its better, personally i got favourite places like Redding that would be larger to stay longer within (some extra quests there)

    I will think about every possibilities.

    Chosen One and Vault Dweller was not fully independend person characters, because got important mission that dont permit them make trully own life way. Big invention may be changing it!

    Not sure about start game, already i got some ideas
    -start near vertbird crash site
    -start in broken car on road
    That make you dont remember who you are, so start new life from there.

    And about end game: there will be no end, fully epic game
    -fully randomed locations
    -specializations in any proffesion
    you just find yourself what you want make, nobody will tell you that
    when you find it- this will be great fun

    This need to make many different possibilities and specialisations to +10 level experience (something like many games in one, its a dream of RPG fan)

    I got an Idea. how about the Main character Forgets everything and finds no need to try and remember. I don't no if that makes sense but I mean that the Protagonist has no desire to learn about his past.

    Re: new locations

    Some rich guy's fallout shelter.
    Maybe it was never used, maybe there are some corpses in it.

    A sewer system like in Arcanum.

    Another military base would be nice.
