FALLOUT PROJECT BRAZIL BETA 1 3 1 FULL is the only file a first time user will need. Use a Mod Manager to install.
This is a near Total Conversion for Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: Project Brazil adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a quest to a hidden complex in the ruins of Los Angeles. Along the way you'll discover a pitched battle between the Survivalist Army, the New California Republic, and The Super Mutants, which shapes the politics and events leading to the NCR's invasion of the Mojave. The story takes place in 2260 - many years before the "Courier" awakes in New Vegas, while the Enclave struggles to rise again on the West Coast.
The Mod branches off from New Vegas right from the New Game menu. The game will be released in chapters, with the first release containing 3 parts. The full campaign will contain 16 Main Quests and several side stories, all related to the player's journey through Vault 18 and the wasteland of San Bernardino. Their choices at each stage will shape the next, creating 2 plathroughs worth of unique content.
The download of the First Installment comes with a custom installer package containing a few optional add-ons for your game, like the SGhi.info REVELATION Interface, and DLC compatibility patches.
The game features several hours of new exploration and game play, with each branch of the story telling a new tale for repeat playthroughs.
An Alternate Start in Vault 18 with a New Player Character and Main Quest.
A New Intro Video to really give it that "New Game"feeling.
An Ornate Main Quest Line with Compelling Side Quests rich in Fallout & Character Lore.

[This mod has nothing to do with the country of Brazil. No, seriously, it's not The Country of Brazil. I swear. Project Brazil is a working title. The artistic form and story themes are heavily influenced by the Monty Python veteran Terry Gilliam, and the classic 1985 film "Brazil." It's also a throw back to Black Isle Studios, if you're into Irish Myth. You can read more about us on our fan-run Wikipedia Article. How cool is that?]

So 2014 pretty much blew past in the blink of an eye, and while a lot of work was done, we kinda fell off the rails there for a while. But! We've been back online for a while now and began making progress. We have the story in the GECK, some interesting new plot twists, and a long way to go.
And this sign~!
If you were to go back to 2011 and tell me that in 2015 I'd still be working on Fallout: Project Brazil, I'd probably have a heart attack. That is a long time to be working on anything. But, as history shows, here we are.
We are currently down to just two coders, one of which is our venerable RickerHK from the 1st Installment, and our other mate only drops by every few months or so. We lost Freddie to the responsibilities of real life, along with Marco.
That leaves us with a bit of a problem, since I, Brandan Lee, am not a programmer. I chose to play a 3D Art & Designer cross class character and rolled a 4 on programming. That means that after Level Design and Quest Dialogue Writing are finished, I get to sit on the bench and be a cheerleader.
When I open my email in the morning, my heart either soars or gets crashed depending on whether there is a team update waiting or not.
Currently, the story of F: PB in the GECK is just... it's just too damn big. It is a VERY deep story, 7,000 lines including part 1, encompassing 15 Main Quests full of major branches, 5 Companions, and about 8 side quests! It took Steven and I months to finish getting the text alone into the engine, and I'm still missing a chuck that's in the form of Google Documents and not in the GECK. I recent brought JoshBadWriter on board to help tackle it.
I assembled it as though it were the best game we could possibly make. I ripped it apart, I minimized it, I cut out the 3rd installment, and hacked and slashed until it was this:
This is the first part of the 2nd Installment, the famous "A Night in Pinehaven," which starts right out of Vault 18. This is where all the decisions the player made in Vault 18 get summed up. All the companions, the Enclave vs Wasteland Scouts, and the player finally grows out of their Athlete / Nerd bracket and becomes a Warrior / Scientist.
There are 6 possible companions, and we decided to account for them all right here. WE had to distill 6x6 combinations (36 variable sets) down to 12, and then we got it down to just 9.
I did a poor job of documenting this late in March, so it left Rick in a tight knot of established variables and condition checks in the dark. That was my bad. We went through a serious burnout phase that lasted the remainder of 2014 after this monster hit us. I'm kicking myself for designing this thing, no matter how cool it is. Damn.
It then connects to the next part:
"Nothing lasts forever, Aku! Your evil days are at hand!"
We decided at the start of the year to trim this down. The flowchart on the left shows all the content we had planned back when we had things like momentum and energy! :p The one on the right shows what we're going to do to get F: PB released this year. There are still major branches and lots of details, but it's more on par in scale to the 1st Installment.
I'm bringing GePalladium from the Vanessa Mod on-board to take over the companions, so Rick has better time handling the Main Quest.
The story on the left was designed with Project Brazil being a really significant mod team in mind. I wrote all the dialog and planned the quests to be done by new coders that would join after the huge thumbs up from Bethesda and Obsidian. After all, we got a lot of promises from some really incredible people.
For all the work we did, we were really well rewarded with positive reception when the 1st Installment launched. We had a lot of time, since I was unemployed through a big stretch of it at the end after leaving Crystal Sky, and the other team mates were pretty settled. But that help we were banking on? Never materialized. Lesson learned there.
That was okay, because the team was still together. We didn't need new folks anyway.
Since the first installment was my yardstick, I figured that we learned a lot, had better managed our assets, and had laid the foundations to make the rest of the game stitch together fluidly - the next part would be a breeze. All the levels were done, all the characters ready, and the story was written and edited... so there was no more waiting for assets to move down the pipeline! Smooth sailing, right?
Mmm, not so much. Real life had other plans. Between some of us being put in the hospital and others getting big day jobs, keeping up with F: PB was a real bear. So we all decided to take a break and recuperate.
I actually took some time off to build some star-ships for a new indie Role Playing Game game I plan on announcing after F: PB is finished:
But, after a good long vacation, we're back on the horse. After Fallout: Project Brazil is on track and we have more programming to show, I'll update everyone again.
You can read 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.
FALLOUT PROJECT BRAZIL BETA 1 2 0 PATCH - Fixes many bugs, refines some dialogues, avoid common crashes, optimizes a few areas, and updates quests.
Highest Rated (10 agree) 9/10
Project Brazil has to be one of the most hopeful mods ever. If it were to be picked up by ZeniMax, and offered as a DLC - I would pay for it tenfold. This is honestly one the best mods I have ever played, with an amazing storyline and astounding voice acting, very professionally-done. The new Enclave "Patriot" uniforms are amazing, and despite my personal enmity against America, I wear one often. I guess I can coldly state "I wear this as a big fuck-you." Even in its current state, this is incredibly…
