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.
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 ****-you." Even in its current state, this is incredibly enjoyable, I find myself wandering about aimlessly enjoying the grim outlook and darker atmosphere of the California Wasteland.It perfectly captured the meek outlook, and melancholy meant to be experienced by New Vegas flawlessly, even in the music from the NCRPR *I love the blues feeling given off by most of the songs chosen, and the voice actor fits perfectly with the idea of the station.*. I eagerly await the chance to watch giant wars take place across the wastes of California. Astounding work, and I wish you great success with Episode Two. I should give this a ten, but I will keep it here - at a highly-respectable nine, and bump it up to a ten whenever we get to see Episode Two, or whenever that bug I get with Robotodog is fixed (I had to reload an Autosave for wasting a Science-magazine while attempting to get to A.L.P.H.A, and I could no-longer interact with Robotodog, only his terminal.) Well, regardless. Thank you for an amazing mod experience, and I wish you all great luck and speed with the last two episodes.
Very lore friendly, excellent voice acting with believable characters. Despite some criticism from users, the vault is well laid out and easily navigable and is a truly interesting place to explore with plenty of attention to detail.
I'm happy to report that I've found a mod here with plenty of text based fluff, leading to greater immersion and a more believable world.
Some fantastic jokes and sometimes some jibes at the players expense (for my second playthrough I maxed out some of my S.P.E.C.I.A.L skills to make life a little easier leading to some...unintended dialogue options) made this mod a joy to play.
The only thing that has prevented me from giving this a 10 is some minor bugs that occasionally crop up. I'm sure these will be fixed in due course.
Congratulations to the team that built the mod, and I for one, will be looking to the next instalment with baited breath.
An unusual sight among mods, Fallout: Project Brazil is an unofficial expansion so incredible, it feels like you got a professional, full-priced DLC for free! Incredible writing, unique and colorful characters, impressive world-building, and very unique gameplay based around stats and perks all combine to create one of the best mods - nay, expansions - ever made for a game in recent years.
Oh, and when you finish the first installment, step outside Vault 18 and explore. You won't be disappointed with what you find.
