Hello and welcome to this update of FTTW progress!

For the last 3 months progress was glacially slow, plagued by headaches and technical problems.

A lot of my effort was going in, and very little progress was coming out!

All that seems to be changing this week though!

2 major developments occured since the weekend:

1. Story Events:
I have now managed to code a template for our brand new Wasteland Story Events.
(I hope, I still have to fully test it to make sure I did not screw it up somewhere!)

"What is a Wasteland Story Event?"
I hear you cry!
Well let me tell you!
It is our brilliant, innovative and unique
(at least I don't think I have seen it in any other Civ mod)
Event System!

One thing that Fallout and it's successors (and predecessors) have always been known for is:
Choices and Consequences.

Now very soon FTTW will (hopefully) be known for this too!

We will have oodles (currently almost 1!) of curious/bizarre/moral/ideological occurences and choices for you to make.

Something will happen in the lives of your little citizens, and they shall call upon you to decide what to do about it.

You will be presented with 3 choices, but you won't know the consequence of your choice until after you decide!

Not only that, but these seemingly inconsequential events will have unforeseen effects down the road, leading you down one of a number of unique storylines.

Each Story will consist of 3 parts
(we hope to make longer ones in the future but it is really hard!)
With almost 40 (39 + the starting event) unique choices/consequences in each!

However you will only get to see a handful of these each time you wander down the ever branching paths of fate and destiny!

So prepare to experience the grit and toil of the wasteland like never before with the

ALL NEW

WASTELAND STORY EVENTS!

and if that wasn't enough to get you all worked up!

2. The Fallout GUI Mk2!

After about a year of toiling in fruitless purgatory some of my team have finally cracked a bizarre and confusing crashing issue with the new UI we wanted to adopt for the mod, so we can finally begin on developing the UI to be even better than ever!

We will hopefully have screen shots in the future when we move from the code to the cosmetics of it, but I for one am very excited about the possibilities!

But wait there's More!!

In amongst the fruitless toiling we were able to add in a few more additions that will continue the march toward awesomeness!

New units:
We have added some new units after feedback, that will allow you to create simple fighting units without the need for rare resources, that will be able to conquer cities just like their well armed cousins!

New Buildings:
We have added a few new buildings that will allow you to gather in those much needed and rare bonus resources in the mid to late game, so everyone will be able to engage in the minigun wielding power armoured carnage that we all know and love!

Civic Prereq System Expansion:
This used to only be active for Slaver related units and buildings, but we are expanding it to include more of the civics and more units and buildings.
(Currently fairly early and unbalanced across the civics, but every journey starts with a step!)
So now your civic choices will have even deeper and further reaching effects, you could in one ill planned move bring your entire military to a standstill or collapse your entire economic system!
Whoops!

New Art:
Clanky has been hard at work cranking (or maybe clanking) out this, that and the other, making new things and tidying up old things to look even prettier!
So much in fact that I can't even remember them all!
Highlights Include:
Swanky New Vault Dweller Jump Suits!
A Brand New Vault model with a BIG DOOR!

I'll even think about posting up some images in the image section when I can be bothered!
HOW GOOD AM I!

That is about all I have to tell you right now, so stay tuned for more yummy wasteland goodness in the near future!

Yeah, unzipping is usually best to do to the desktop, then move it into program files. It is something to do with windows security settings, it doesn't let things 'change' stuff in program files directly.

Glad you got it to work.

are you running the game as administrator? right click on your shortcut or the .exe to do it.

are you running the steam version?

and you are putting it inside the mods folder in bts install path, and not my documents?

I can't think of any other reason why it would crash...

that means that you have not put it in the BTS main folder. folder.

That usually means you have put it in my documents.

Because it has a custom reource folder it has to go in the main installation path, not my documents.

C:\Games\CivIV\2K Games\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4 Complete\Beyond the Sword\Mods\K-Fallout

Something like that. Although it will be Fallout: Tame the waste, not k-fallout, that is my test build name.

you can also check these files to make sure the mod name matches the file path, it should do unless you have changed it, in which case change it back.

Yes, but you would have to combine them manually, which would mean recompiling the .dll after combining the source codes.

In short, it is not a simple task.

I have only included oppurtunity fire from RevDCM.

Because this mod is based on kmod AI, it is more difficult to include source code from other mods. you can see a full list of changes to the .dll of the mod at our forum page Forums.civfanatics.com

You will see there is already a lot of stuff in it.
