About a week ago, early alpha gameplay made its way online for a new total conversion mod that seeks to use Fallout 4‘s Creation Engine as the means to recreate all of the original world, story, quests, and content of Fallout: New Vegas. Now that the footage has been well received by the post-apocalyptic RPG franchise’s community, the development team behind the mod has decided to provide fans with an update on the project’s progress by discussing a few key details and offering some fresh screenshots.
According to a blog post on the Fallout 4 New Vegas mod’s official site, it seems as if the folks working on the project are rather busy, as the team have been building new locations, making sure the mechanics run smoothly, and much more. Thankfully, per the developer log and as seen in the screenshots further below, the mod is coming along quite nicely, with a solid amount of groundwork laid out for the road ahead.
“On the development front for this week, work was spent primarily working on our worldspace. Between polishing existing locations and pre-terraforming other parts of the world, our Level Design team have had their hands full getting things looking and feeling good. The screenshots with this week’s devlog showcase the area between Goodsprings and Jean, with a nice selection of different previews of the lighting scheme we’re aiming for.”
While the above screenshots for the Fallout 4 New Vegas mod are decidedly beautiful, they definitely make one long to see the finished product, and the developers seem to be up to the task, as they have promised even more updates to come. According to the blog post, the team has “some more great stuff coming down the pipes,” in addition to some extra content that’s “lined up for the coming weeks.”
All things considered, it’s difficult to not admire the ambition and quality of work coming from the development team behind the project. After all, the Fallout 4 New Vegas mod has a boatload of content to reconfigure, but hopefully the project will be completed by sometime in the near future and inspire Obsidian Entertainment to make a new game in the series.
Fallout 4 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Fallout: New Vegas can be obtained for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
