Hello Tank :-)

Yes, you were left for dead in the ruins on the Surface and the Gravediggers found you and took you to their headquarters. That's one more recruit for them! The game will start when you awake in their underground headquarters for the first time.

Few people told me the same on IRC and doubted that we'd succeed. I told them I hadn't worked more than 200 hours on this (and I'm not even talking about Amarok!) to abandon this project.

Another question is...There will be only low-tech stuff?Or even gausses or similar stuff.(In my opinion hi-tech stuff will only ruin this mod)

There will be a huge thrad posted about it in news after we made the map and the game balance (In a few weeks, then). In short, small guns will be very important and I'm not sure even the H&K P90C will make its way into the game. Only a few big guns will be available, but they will be very important as "support weapons". Energy weapons will be rare and their ammo scarce.

Thanx for your support, Tank.

About this project success, it probably has the best chance to be for some basic reasons.
The major is that SD has been well thinked.
We start with a manageable sized area and with a good technical overview of what we can do or not.
Most of the projects failed because their dev aimed to high, here it's not the case. :;):

No. There is no need for it, as players won't even have to access worldmap.

Ah, Nice. Makes me even happier, at last there will be no over powered weapons ingame.

hmm, probably when there will be more areas(like abandoned vault or abandoned military base) we will have access to better weapons

anyway, there shoud be some weapon restrictions(like in 2238's Hinkley arena) for certan maps or dificultys.

anyway, i see this mood like the bastard kid of FOnline and Killing Floor with Dead Frontier as the godfather(well, you know what i mean)

All suggestions about map are for far later Nick.
Surface Dwellers will grow slowly, map by map. Ashtown would have the longuest life as we will not build another untill all our features will be fully polished.

IMHO, the most weapons types the game offers, the best it is. But with the weapons' rework, even the gauss can receive disadvantages which make it useful but not overpowered.

For now I don't feel comfortable with the gauss, the YK42B and the miniguns. However, you're right when you say that the more weapons there are, the better. That's why when we remove one weapon from the game (for example, Gauss pistol) we add eventually (maybe not so soon) we also add another weapon, that fits Surface Dwellers more. For example to replace the miniguns that were scrapped, it's safe to asssume we'll add some light support weapons (M60/LSW clones). Talking about the Big Guns, I also plan to add a grenade launcher (that will have a weaker copy as a SG weapon).
So don't be afraid if we scrap some weapons, because there will be new ones :smile:

Even if this game doesnt try to fit to Fallout's lore, it would be fun to preserve some aspect of the original game, and funny weapons are part of it. I see that you are trying to make the game more realistic, will that point of view be adapted to the whole game ?

As realistic as a zombie-apocalypse game can be :mrgreen: Humor of Fallout is very important and I tried to keep it in the dialogues I wrote. However, when it comes to general game balance and combat system, I can't let humor modify my vision of the game. It's not about being realistic, but about common sense - I can't really imagine a survival-horror game where you have a minigun. We want weapons to be very important for the atmosphere of the game, so they will inherit as few Fallout elements as possible.

Combat system as weapon modifications will grow during Beta stage.
Currently, I dont know exactly how far we can touch it. With time and feelback we will see on other map what kind of weapon can be used. So dont hope to find a gauss in Ashtown... :cool:

Anyway, shooting a zombie with a gauss will only make a perfectly healed 1 inch hole in him, not slowing it at all :mrgreen:
