We have nothing to give you but your own freedom. [...]
If it is the future you seek, then I tell you that you must come to it with empty hands. You must come to it alone, and naked, as the child comes into the world, into his future, without any past, without any property, wholly
dependent on other people for his life.
You cannot take what you have not
given, and you must give yourself. You
cannot buy the Revolution. You cannot
make the Revolution. You can only be
the Revolution. It is in your spirit, or it
is nowhere.

- Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed


This total transformation mod (not following Fallout lore) aims to bring to life anarchist utopias after Global meltdown. It takes place in eastern part of former Canada and United-States. The game is a bilingual (french & english) single player non-linear RPG. It can be called a radical camping simulator or a positive post-apocalyptic game. The world has been challenged by the Sum of all heavily anticipated catastrophies. Humans survived and organised themselves according to a mix of anarchistic, aboriginal, technological and nomadic ways of living, mostly driven by anarchist ideas (anti-domination, direct democracy, freedom and autonomy). In-game, "Sum" refers to the sum of all catastrophies, the name, a new currency and mispellings of words "son" and "sun". The Sum (french version : Nous Aurons) is an art project created by the french canadian artist Hugo Nadeau (www.hugonadeau.com).

★ Non-linear RPG (exploration based).
★ 25 cities and hundreds of locations to visit.
★ Original soundtrack and ambient sounds.
★ New interface, mascot and cursors.
★ Environment dangers (air / water / soil pollution, radiation, floods, forest fires)
★ False & fatal endings, finish the game anywhere.
★ Hunger, cooked meat/veggies, boiled water, water gathering, coffee, tea and kombucha making.
★ Portable electricity monitored for a variety of uses.
★ Random objects and resources.
★ Campfire, cooler, flashlight, headlight, solar backpack, flares, cart, bike, solar oven, batteries, GPS device,
teleport devices (eVAC), fishing, gas mask, torch, tent, ultrasonic device, radio, electronic lockpicks, rope.

★ New weapons : Atlatl, Crossbow, Slingshot, Blowgun, Gaz grenade, etc.

★ Thieves that are not satisfied until you give away ALL YOUR STUFF.

50 000 visits! Thank you so much everyone, I'm touched. As you probably know, this mod is still very active and in progress. I don't have a timeline yet for version 1.6, that will be the definitive features and contents update, or BETA version. Until then, I plan on doing some updates to keep you well fed, like 1.5.4 Alpha and so on... Working on the second half of the portraits right now, so you can expect as a next release an all-portraits (400 more), contextual perks and bug fix update.

Awesome. Mate i hope that in the following patch you can put a portrait on all the robot assistants that can join to the player crew hehe.

Yes good idea I'll keep that in mind. Do they use a generic portrait at this point in your version or no image? I don't recall exactly where I put them all ;), if you can send me the place your remembrer they where that would help :P I have so many maps it's hard to track the contents sometimes! I know there is one in FAT CITY, one in a special encounter inhabited by mutants, this is about what I remember spontaneously. I'll create a unique portrait for each of them, with wigs :P that is for sure.

They have no image. I remember one robot assistant on Fat city and the Coca Cola factory that i dont remember the name exactly this time. Oh and Jerry the npc that is allowed to join you if you free him from the jail neither have a portrait image.

Oh thanks for telling me about Jerry. I will add him too. I am quite sure Coca Cola is the starting mission of Hiverse, I'll take a look. Thanks!

New 1.5.3 version now available for download, as complete version or patch! Patch can either be applied on 1.5 or 1.5.2 version. OK, previous versions savegames might be affected, but I honestly don't know exactly how. What I feel is that already visited area will not be updated by the patch or new version, but locations visited after the update will be updated. Whatever, it might be a good time to start a new game, as 5 starting locations on 20 now have recruits in them. Now half the starting characters can count on at least one other character as a companion. Plus I incorporated a new special location that is found by any player early in game with 3 possible recruits, a man, woman and child. Enjoy!

Finally I can enjoy what was promised in the update and see areas that were unattainable, have missions and I hope you do not have that problem before some objects lacked description (also that some emerging messages and texts could not be read in English, but it was obligatory in French) but what has changed at the end came. ^.^

There is still a lot of french or english only contents, but these dialogues are completely optional. All side quests are of the language of the game, and at least half the communities can welcome you in your chosen language. Also, as time pass, there is less and less bugs and missing items descriptions. The list of items is HUGE, but I am slowly winning against it!

The truth is that I have tried and all that. It seemed a pretty good update (Talking about the patch only since the full version in 1.5 is very heavy, you know what is normal) for example that sumbridge error in which suddenly came to attack is no longer (although this still happens in Arena (I do not know what is causing it) and there is a new problem in Capital that this happens and check in the console and is caused by a junker) with respect to objects this is better than before most (say 90%) are with a description and the minority lacks a description or an image. I have certainly done 2 ottawawa missions and I liked them a lot since I had seen the cult in the kettle and in the case of posawan it became complicated (normally if you use only one character that is hardly armed with a magnum and a little more xD) what if that complicates me is the reward that they do not give it (since it is on the shelf which can not be opened because it is owned by someone else) of the 3 missions I did (2 ottawawa and 1 win -win) I have not known how to do the win-win certainly and more than bother me gives me doubts about how to get it . Even so I liked the only thing that I could not prove is the crafting system (I do not know how it is used xD) and the truth with the update is the theme of cooking something nice ^.^ .

Hi Gecko,

I noted all you bug issues and I will check that when I will have some time.

I can already say that the crafting system works by visiting some specific random maps. Most of the random maps have a unique crafted item related to it, that you trigger following 2 conditions :

- You DON'T already have the related items in your whole party : like shoes, spear, knife, armor, etc.

- You have enough skill (Search + Repair), meaning you are able to find the correct ingredients and know how to make the item.
