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



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!

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!

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

We will hopefully be releasing Alpha5 soon. (Had a bunch of teething problems with our switch to the New UI which is causing delays) So I would love you to grab that when it comes and give feedback on how you feel it is progressing!

Vaults are dotted all over the map, they are the 'mine' art work. on various tiles, they are very large so you can't miss them. If you are trying to play as bos, enclave, or super mutant, and you do not start with a vault 'under' your settler, then quit to main menu and start a new game. That will give your settler a starting vault. There is a glitch in the map code we have taht for some reason does not work the first time you start a new game...

hmmm...have you installed it in the main mods directory of the game and not my documents, and are you running the game as administrator...

if it just doesn't start I cannot think what the problem could be.. normally if something was wrong it would crash or some other oddity, but just not reloading... never experienced that, other than sometimes mods take a while to start for me if my computer is in a lazy mood.

I can barely run the mod at all. No matter what faction I play, the UI never shows up. The tech adviser is completely blank, there is no way for me to give units any orders from the nonexistent UI, I can't tell cities to do anything... it's just overall a broken game. I've been looking all over the place, but everyone just says "run as admin," which I tried already.

oh, well if you are running as admin it should work, the only other thing is making sure it is in the main game directory, but that would normally crash the game on initialisation.

The mod works fine for me and everyone else using it, that problem is usually caused by not running in admin as it has the BUG mod, which needs admin permission to work properly.

these UI issues will hopefully resolve themselves with the next release as we have changed to a different base UI code
