    I've been lurking and keeping track of this, and I have to say I'm REALLY looking forward to it!

    I do have one question though...

    Will there be infinite free-roam after the game's ended? None of that hard-coded "You have 13 in game years to screw around before we kick you out!" nonsense?

    Sometimes I descend down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon to loot ancient uranium mines. But sometimes I drop everything and run for my life...

    I like the new scenery. How goes the writing?

    Were you guys able to make the Grand Canyon's mutants?

    Oh wow, that's suitably creepy!

    And thanks for confirming infinite free-roam! ^_^ That's been something that bugged me about the original two Fallout games, that they were free-roam but not infinitely. I really like exploring but I prefer to get the main quests done first so that I don't have to worry about "wasting time." I'd really like to see if anyone creates a mod for Fallout 1 and 2 that works around the 13-year limit.

    On topic though, I'm really excited for this project of yours and I can't wait to play it!

    There are already mods that do that and they've been around for years. Where have you been living, in a Vault?

    That awkward moment when you realize that only a tiny hand full of people ever experienced the 13 years ending in the game. Everyone else managed to see the game in less ingame time.

    I misread that as 'mutant cannabis'. :mrgreen:

    You have time to do every single quest, and then comeback in every cities to kill everyone, before reaching that limit.

    I am a very slow paced player and i never reached it.

    Hell, half the time I don't even finish the Oil Tanker questline before I start a new play through.

    What's the status of this mod? Still in the writing phase?

    It's not a mod but the biggest Fallout game :P

    Since I'm changing my career at the moment and setting up my own business, Van Buren is low priority for me personally. I have to earn money somehow to survive so that's top priority. Other guys are working on it though.

    I still cannot believe this happening... I thought it was just a wishful dream.

    I'm not giving up on the game, I just have less time to work on it. Usually only over weekends, not over weekdays anymore. But that's just a temporary period.

    I have plenty of cash savings but I need a steady income so I can pay off my loans. Starting a business isn't the same as finding a new job. I have to do a lot more.

    That was not what I meant. I just thought this cancelled Fallout 3 would never happen.

    No problem bro! I just wanted to say that so you all don't wonder why the updates have slowed down.

    Congratulations on the new business, Hexer!

    You wouldn't hit me if my answer was "yes," would you?

    On a serious note, where are those mods? I've looked around all over the place here and I can't honestly say I've seen them. Then again, maybe I missed them somehow. Fine print and all that...

    Mind sending me links? (Sorry for derailing the thread a bit >.<)
