Fallout: New California adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a journey through the wastelands of the New California Republic's Cajon Pass. An unofficial prequel to New Vegas, FPB adds hours of new gameplay and a fully voiced stand alone campaign.

Post news Report RSS [Fallout: Project Brazil] is now [Fallout: New California]!

New month, new name, same great taste. Getting ready to release means we're re-branding a bit to reflect a new prospectus.

New Name Same Great Taste

We are, beginning our final approach to releasing this gargantuan mod!

Sweet news for those of you following us from the very beginning wondering... ahem...

"why its called project braziil[!!??BRBRBR[sic][sic][sic]"

Turns out it was just a code name.

We are in fact going to be landing in sunny Post-Apocalyptic New California late this year.

New Name Same Great Taste

But no, seriously.

New California is a superior name for this mod.

It's opening shot is of California, the intro is all about California, we say California several times in the narration, it's set in California, within New California Republic territory, about the struggles of New California against California factions that impact the New California Republic in New Vegas.

This Month's Updates!

This Month's Updates!


Some of those legacy logos may still hang around for a while.

California California California, in case you missed that.

Project Brazil was an intentionally misleading code name in the lore to throw Soviets and Subversives off the track of the Pre-War Conspiracy that the legacy name was based on.


I don't want that intentionally misleading code name misleading you guys. XD

That was stupid, and I feel much better knowing this will fit expectations better.

New Name Same Great Taste


In addition to that, BETA200 is now SO comprehensive that it is a fully complete mod. No stone was left unturned, no file left unchanged, no texture left ugly and hardly a level or even rock unmodified.

If Bethesda gave us the source code we would have even ripped that up and made mods that effectively made New Vegas look like Fallout 4 (but run waaaay better.) Unfortunately that'll probably never happen, but one can dream.

This Month's Updates!

We'll be releasing the entire mod all at once start to finish, basically rebuilt from the ground up as a single mod. No parts, and no extra downloads. Everything all together in one solid ~6GB package.

We talked with the Nexus staff and they're letting us keep our URL and page intact, and we worked out a deal so our file won't need to be broken up into parts. That's super cool of them to do, so thank Dark0ne and SirSalami for that.

Same goes for our ModDB. I'll keep the URL the same as the legacy but replace the titles and art there too.

So get ready!

We have the Alpha version internally circulating in a small group of fellow modders, HOPEFULLY who will be assisting us in getting more upgrades to our map, bug patches, and some minor extra quests, guns, gear, VFX, static art, and creatures.

That means things aren't far off, and we'll have a release date as soon as Rick wraps up MQ05 and Jack adds the new weather and missile launch effects.

Gonna be crazy the next couple months.

Super exciting.

You can read more about our progress on the Design Documents Found Here. In the mean time, you can keep track of us on ModDB, Fallout Nexus, or Facebook. We've got a thriving online community centered around each one.

You can also throw dollars at me on Pay-Pal so I don't starve to death at my desk: Nexusmods.com

Cheers

New California fits better than project Brazil...anyways i'm a new comer to this mod, i've been following it for a long time now & finally ready to get into it!
is there an ideal load order & list of compatible mods for this that won't make the game(mod) unstable? i use a **** ton of mods and my vanilla game is already unstable, so any suggestion is welcome plus i would also like to take a look at the author's load order if possible..here's mine Pastebin.com

Looks fine. As long as there are no alternate start mods you should be good to go.

I was always convinced it's either placeholder codename, similarly to Van Buren for original Fallout 3, or some acronym, just wondered about context.

Love the new logo with the name change, looking forward to the mod too. I do hope you guys are still considering a patch that replaces the spiders when you got time because I really would like to give this one a go!

Uhhh will this work fine with the vanilla new Vegas or does this require some sort of graphic overhaul?

FNC works just fine with vanilla. Rudy ENB is highly recommended but not necessary.

I heard that this was set 20 years before Fallout: New Vegas. Since the Enclave is involved, and based on the time frame I heard about, I can't help but wonder... Will we run across child Arcade Gannon, Craig Boone, or younger versions of anyone else from the Remnants or NCR in the mod?

No. All those folks aren't in San Bernardino at the time of our mod. We don't involve any NPCs from vanilla or any other game except by mentioning them.

Thank you for the reply! Though it would have been cute to see them as kids I definitely understand not wanting to mix in the vanilla people.
