    I saw you on Reddit, but I didn't post there because this is NMA, where criticism is very widely accepted.

    This is a bad idea.

    I admire your bravery in trying to create a mod of this size but your concept is flawed. You want to create a new Fallout game from the ground up on the New Vegas GECK. This is going to be so damn hard. Fallout 3 took two years, 100 people and millions of dollars to make. You want to do the same thing with a tiny indie studio, no funding and limited resources. Do you see the problem? Try something smaller first, then when the F4 GECK comes out, learn to work with that. Give it a year or two, you'll have the time necessary to actually build a mod of this size before the next Fallout game comes out. By that point, most everyone who modded F:NV and F3 will probably have migrated to the new game and you'll have a better pool of people who want to work with you.

    fallout total conversion mod needs help!:)

    Hi
    For those who don't know fallout: Fallout is a series of post apocalyptic RPG type games. Although the series is set during the 22nd and 23rd centuries, its setting and artwork are influenced by the post-war culture of the 1950's America. it takes place after a nuclear war.
    this will be a total conversion mod
    meaning a whole new story/game based of the GECK Editor for fallout New Vegas
    the GECK Editor is free to download if you have fallout New Vegas on Steam or if you just have fallout New Vegas without steam download GECK online
    I don't need total professionals I just need people willing to help:)I will be the quest programmer meaning I will make all the quests.

    WHAT I NEED:

    -Level Designers

    Narrative Designers are responsible for outlining plot in addition to writing dialogue and in-game text. Responsible for bringing strong story ideas that can translate into interesting game experiences as well as adding context and flavour to the ideas of other team members

    and even though I'm one of the quest designers I need help from some people:)

    Okay, maybe it's not such a good idea to write a post in the #1 most hardcore Fallout forum on the Internet and start it with "for those of you who don't know Fallout".

    Second, what's your mod going to look like? Do you have a story? A timeframe? A budget? Previous experience? You sound like one of those useless teachers I had in college (I studied game development) that want to get together as many people as possible and separate them into narrowly defined worker roles before you even begin to think about what your mod or TC will look like. Why do you need so many people? Is there any reason why you can't do this yourself? Again, what is your story, what's the mod going to look like when it's finished? What is it about your idea that would make people want to help it become reality?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just saw that you have posted this exact same thread three days ago, and people didn't jump to it, so now you post again and expect different results.

    Go back to Reddit, kid.

    I have a feeling this was copied and pasted from some other website, probably Reddit. How could anyone who would post or even frequent regularly in the modding section of this site not know what the game is even about? :razz:

    And well, yeah, if TS is not a game designer, may he don't expect any to come. Those who actually can do this, will be able to start their own projects bringing their own ideas to life.
    I doubt there can be anyone attracted by scripting, also.

    I bet TS doesn't even realize that even a moderate-quality FO total conversion usually takes from 3 to ∞ years.

    /Edit: Merged the two threads.


    To me it seems you have no concept at all. Making a game "as you go" won't work / you will very likely fail with it. Write a *real* concept first- not just the general story of the game, but everything that happens. Write down the background of every location, and every important character. Write down every quest in detail with everything that can happen due to attempting / resolving it, etc. If you can't get at least like 50 pages, you will most likely fail at some point.

    My suggestion: Start small. Make a tiny quest mod first and after that you can try something bigger. It also helps to draw the attention of other people. Usually nobody likes to help if you can't show anything.

    PS: At this point, play testers is the least you need. :>
