Halout 3, the total conversion mod for Fallout 3!

Post news Report RSS Announcing "Fall of Skopje"!

It is with great pleasure and regret that I announce to you the new indie game in development from the same team that made Halout 3. Unfortunately that mean I will be putting the mod itself on hold. Before you start to panic think of this as a large improvement for the mod. The storyline is still the same and the game play is just as good (I personally feel its even better). Over all it will have better graphics, AI, physics, drivable/flyable vehicles, huge maps, and much much more!

Hello everyone,

Fall of Skopje is a free indie game being developed on Cryengine 3 SDK, the latest engine released by Crytek. Cryengine 3 provides beautiful graphics, intense AI, amazingly large landscapes, breath taking views, great audio support, vehicles that you can drive and/or fly, multiplayer capabilities, and much much more! This ensures the game will be much better then the mod could ever be, it will help us achieve our ultimate dream for what we wanted to see the mod become.

For more information about Fall of Skopje please visit Fallofskopje.webs.com we have many cool things planned and we are looking forward to sharing them with you when the time comes :). Remember Fall of Skopje is a non-profit project being developed as an educational experience, we share our educational creation for the world to enjoy. Bungie still gets full credit for their legendary game series "Halo" that inspired this project. Once again I can not stress enough that this is 100% non-profit, we will be making NO money off this project!

Thank you all for your support and time,
Justin (Lead developer/Project Manager and the creator of "Halout 3").

I'm already contacting Bungie about that. I'm also asking Microsoft about using Halo 3 or Halo: Reach models in the game. For those who don't know me (as most of you don't), I'm the newest team member. :)

How is it not cool?
I can see two things:
1) Microsoft or Bungie can sue if we use them without permission
2) I wouldn't think you'd be saying it's not cool about us using their models, though we aren't until further notice.

Probably not, I understand Cryengine 3 is also out for the 360 but I'm going to be making this with the PC version so I'm not sure if it can be converted.

We are also using models created by Bungie, Micro$oft would be on our case if we try to sell this in any way and I think we would prefer not to be attacked by a ton of soulless lawyers.

Oh, I thought we weren't using Bungie and Microsoft models yet. Well, either way, I have messages in to both places regarding usage permission. :)

I can not confirm all of them are ripped and the ones I can I am sill deciding if we should use them. Either way Microsoft would sue us if we sold it and it wasn't the real models from the game. They would sue us simply because it uses the basic storyline of Halo and the same characters.

Well, just don't sell the game then. Nobody has been able to sell halo content other than RoosterTeeth, and only them because they give MS a huge chunk of their income from the show.

We are not selling it to start with.

Actually, I can't answer that, because I don't know PoW's intentions, but I *believe* this is only for the PC, due to the fact that we can't really make a Halo game for the Xbox/Xbox 360 without shipping CD's or paying for large filehosting.
