Story - post apocalyptic world

Sometime in Earth's future, the face of the planet is decimated by a nuclear war which invertible opens dimensional portals all over the world with devastating results . Cities fall, civilization collapses, billions of people perish, and the portals let though hundreds of different aliens and terrible demons to prey on the planet .

The story of wastelander picks up 100 years later. mankind has, at last, crawled up out of the ashes to reassert itself in the world to take back what is rightfully theirs . Only this world is as strange as any alien planet. Reshaped by dimensional energies, inhabited by alien beings and horrors, humankind must learn to adapt to this strange new world or perish.

Based on the Rifts pen and paper rpg game but this will be more post apocalyptic and less about magic ,more of a mech and aliens in a mad max back ground

The Coalition
The Coalition are fascist human supremacists with a totalitarian government, restrictive internal media, restrictive education, and mandatory military service. The Coalition is ruled by Emperor Karl Prosek, and is genocidally opposed to all aliens, D-bees (Dimensional Beings), human mutations, and Magic. Their ultimate goal is to return the Earth to its pre-war status, and do so by attacking anything and everyone that is foreign to Earth as it was before the cataclysm.

The Xiticix
Giant humanoid insects from another world, Xiticix numbers have grown from a few dozen to almost four million in only 50 years! The Xiticix have no allies; they exist solely to breed, conquer, and terraform the Earth into a world suitable only for them. Apparently more intelligent and advanced than their "bug-like" appearance would at first suggest, many foolish adventurers have dismissed the Xiticix as non-sentient, only to end their days staring down the barrel of a Xiticix-manufactured glop rifle.

Beneath a mountain lies an ancient military bunker of the old American Empire; a vast installation built by Cyberworks before the time of the rifts. Inside is "Archie Three", the ultimate supercomputer. Archie's human masters and creators have been dead for centuries now.
Without their instructions, Archie has spent trillions of cycles computing what to do with himself and the self-contained production complex at his disposal.
Over the centuries, the machine has grown both intellectually and emotionally, as well as having altered its programming. In many respects Archie is now some sort of mechanical living entity.

He has created legions of robotic soldiers using the secrets of lost, pre-rifts technology and production resources.Providing him with military power the equal of any who style themselves "Kings" of Earth. Now that he has decided to take a hand in world affairs, he may even decide to conquer it all.

The Pecos Empire
The Pecos Empire is a loose-knit association of dozens of independent kingdoms and bandit groups. Aliens, technology, and magic exist side-by-side in this chaotic society based in southern Texas. The primary strength of the Pecos Empire rests in their mobility and diversity, making them all but impossible to engage and destroy. Sabre Lasar, self-proclaimed Emperor of the Pecos Empire, is warlord of the region's largest military band. While his position is not powerful in itself, Sabre Lasar has cultivated an environment where many of the other Pecos Empire forces come to him for guidance and acknowledge his leadership. "From the seeds of our diversity, together we can build something great. We have the people, we have the territory, and with me in charge, we have the leadership to become a great power."

The Federation of Hell
A new threat to man has appeared in the last 10 years ,from dimensional portals they made a lighting attack on the crumbled remains of Tolkeen after its war with the Coalition.
Coalition force fell back quickly to their own lands , giving ground to this new threat which they were not ready for.
The Federation of Hell is a force of demons and many other fiendish servants, they have conquered or destroyed all that stand in the way , enslaving or corrupting the population to its cause. Their goal is to take over earth , to make it a hell on earth

Did you remember to move the data folder to the directory the .exe is in? I forgot to move it and when I did the giants stopped being immortal.

Is this mod still in development? I've never seen a mount and blade mod with mechs and things, and it would be a shame if it were dead.
