fallout4logoI have started the process of planning out my first mod for Fallout 4. I have decided to do a Minute Men mod initially since its the one faction that never gets wiped out. This means it will be active in everybodies game and makes a great primary mod to base other mods on later.

You can read all about the ideas for the Minute Men Mod by Clicking HERE and going to the Planning and Design Thread for it.

A summery of what I am thinking about would be a cross between the Skyrim Fighters Guild Mod I made and my NCR Mod. The player would start by doing simple random missions for the minute men and slowly unlock one off quests that lead down the road to a Government being formed for the Common Wealth. With armies, depots, major battles, small battles and more and more recruits until the newly found Government faces its first real enemy, a power that would be able to match its own.

Anyway, its all the thread above, all being talked about right now, sign up on the forum, share your ideas or common on those already posted, be part of the creation of this new mod. Once the Editor is out of beta or things start to look stable, work on this mod will begin.

I would expect the mod will take 1 to 3 months to complete and contain at least 10 quests in Version 1 to get the ball rolling.

fallout4logoBig day today folks....

It was TEGs Birthday on 17th April and April has always been a time of big changes for TEG. Changes that have dramatic effects on your gaming fun. For starters TEG is throwing its doors open to all visitors today, whilst keeping the introduction forum because its good for keeping trolls and spammers out.

But first lets have a little history lesson so you can see where TEG came from and where TEG is going.

The Guild's History....

Back in 2000 I opened a site called Respawn to support mod makers and gamers, it quickly grew in to something special and branched out to support Mechwarrior 4 when that game was released. That spawned a site called Mechstorm which was also successful at supporting mod makers and mod users for the Mechwarrior series.

fallout4logoBethesda have added mod support to the "opt in" 1.5 beta on Steam.

To access it you will need to right click on Fallout 4 in the Steam Client and go to beta's and opt in. Once the beta has been applied to your game a new mods menu will appear in the game.

To access mods you will need an account on Bethesda.Net.

fallout4logoBeth have released a Alpha Launcher for their games that right now will not even let many people sign in and appears to be very buggy and basic. Unfortunately to get the Fallout 4 Editor which is still a beta even after 6 months waiting. You really have to have a https://bethesda.net/ account and need to be able to log in to the Launcher.

Whilst the https://bethesda.net/ website allows logins and works, the launcher clearly does not, so the Editor is not available to some due to the bugs.

The new system appears to be a Facebook/Steam/EA Origins style system with Block and Privacy functions that I have expected to see being more widely supported finally coming to Bethesda.net. This means the trolls and other twats can be blocked and players can get on with enjoying their games finally.

Assuming it works as an effective block, many of these gaming companies do a half arsed job on these things.

Right now the feature does not even seem to be working, but when it does, if it is a REAL Block feature, it will give trolls a good reason to behave because whether they get to see your posts or follow you, will depend on them not annoying you. This system has worked successfully on Facebook for years, many facebook groups are far more friendly than most gaming forums are these days because of these features.

I really support moves to a Facebook style gaming system, too many gaming forums are dangerous troll fests these days. Being able to block people I do not like would be great, or even set up circles of friends to talk too without others noseying in is a plus.

It is already a common feature in many places and it works in reducing the trouble, at least it works in places where the block feature is real and more than just a gimmic.

Update: I was able to sign to the new Launcher after about 40 minutes.
