    SFall's for Fallout 2 only. I'd like to find one for Fallout 1 if possible! The Database doesn't appear to have one though. :-/

    Oh well. Back on-topic, STILL really looking forward to this Van Buren revival project. :)

    After hearing about this project, I almost uninstalled Bethesda's Fallout 3 from my computer.

    ...And then I remembered that Bethesda's Fallout 3 is not only canon, but also I find it fun... and it hits me pretty close to home since I live in Pennsylvania and Bethesda's Fallout 3 takes place in Washington DC which is one State south of me.

    Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    I'm just gonna go ahead and say "Yay, both versions!" and consider both of them canon. Headcanon FTW.

    Considering both Fo3 & Van Buren will leave you less issues than considering both FoNV & Van Buren canon.
    Unless Hexer & Co makes some changes, a lot of FoNV plotline come from Van Buren. (some of Fo3 plotlines too, but much less)

    I'm a pretty good story-teller so I could probably work out a way to blend the two. :)

    fallout 3 is non-canon
    new vegas is sequel to van buren

    since inXile has registered van buren trademark, will you continue working on this mod?
    what do you guys think, will inXile recreate van buren? if so, will it be the way it was supposed to be or bethesda style?

    inXile's registration of Van Buren has nothing to do with Fallout. They might create a game called Van Buren but that will have zero to do with Fallout.

    but why would they register it. certainly not for marketing purposes, since van buren is popular only among oldschool fallout fans. maybe it will be another wasteland series instalment? they also registered "meantime" trademark, which was supposed to be another wasteland game.

    Beth. has all rights to Fallout, they are in the process of making Fallout 4 or will start soon.

    There's no point, no sense, no purpose in registering Van Buren, a code name for FO3, if you're thinking of making a Fallout game.
    So, they must've registered it in connection to Meantime OR just for marketing purposes.

    Well, after some time without any notice here and in the RPGCodex, it is expected that this project is dead or on hold ( or the devs are just mean bunch for leaving us in the dark :irked:) but it looks that they are still posting in their Facebook. Their last post was Feb 15 of 2015 and it shows a image from the Nursery. There are others news too, Hexer is not the project leader anymore because of his business, although it looks like he will come back, and it looks like the development is still going. IMO it will not be this year like I dreamed :sad:

    I don't know this is necroposting ( probably is) but after so much time ( at least for me) without news of this project, it made me shiver and be kind of sad, to think Van Buren will still be only in paper is a sad thought for me and I still dream a little dream of it, but just to see new updates made me happy and hopeful.

    So if anyone is still wandering if this is dead or no, well, it looks like not, let's see what the future holds and hope for the best.

    If everything goes well they might even release it before Mutants Rising! :look: ( Talking about it, how the old mutant is holding up?)

    I guess you can only cross your fingers and hope for the best, but unfortunately the graveyard of unfinished mods is a large one. Sometime though, no news can be good news if people are actually busy working on stuff and haven't gotten around to post about it.

    There is a page on facebook about this mod, and it's updated fairly regularly. I don't know if I'm allowed to link it there.

    Is he on holiday, or just dropped the project completely? :sad:

    HEXER - commented

    "Hopefully, in the next year I will make enough money to leave the job at the bank and focus only on my job in Egypt and on game development. I can't focus any of my time or energy on Van Buren for the simple reason I cannot sell the game and I need to do something that brings in the revenue. I can only return to it with money but for that I have to be successful in either Egypt or with my own RPG. "

    Hexer did leave the project, but many other people are still working on it.
