    Expanding the Fallout Cathedral so it is more than just a facade has been worked on by several Fallout modders for some time. Now Kilgore posted this on the FOnline Wasteland 2155 forums:

    In less positive news, ActionBoy has suspended work on the "the Wastelander" project (originally Fallout 8-bit). He did put up a four-minute video of the game in action:

    The Cathedral screenshot is grandiose.
    It's even better than the Scorpitron 2.O concept art :wink:
    I wasn't aware of The Wastelander project, it looked fun.

    Kinda my fault with Wastelander, though I got the impression we were both burning up. I still write content for it from time to time, but it's not enough to waste ActionBoy's, or any other programmer's, time just yet. It's on my head daily, but so are many other real life things, regrettably. Sooner or later, I wish to seriously get down to it.

    Its quite impressive how far you guys got with The Wastelander and I really like all the portrait images you guys made.
    It really did give me an old school vibe.

    I could upload all the portraits I made, if anyone's interested. Guess they'd make okay avatars.

    I thought I had a good time working on the Wastelander. The project just came to a stop. I was thinking more about coding then coding. In the end project faded away. I think the story was a little to close too 'Rage'(even if it was written way before Rage and deadlus had a better story in my eyes) and when Rage came out it kinda killed some of my spirit. I cant stress it enough it just came to a natural end.

    I also loved working on it, and it was the first time I could actually see my stuff in something playable, so I'll be eternally grateful for that. If I ever have enough content to warrant programming time, you'll be the first one to know.

    Cathedral looks amazing. Love it :)

    8-bit portraits in Wastelander project look really good. Too bad you had to stop production, but real life demands a lot of time. Hope you'll have time to continue one day. Great work so far
