LyonsPrideIconA question was asked today if Lyons Pride would be supporting Consoles with our mods.

I am leaving that particular question to the individual mod makers on the team but as a rule Lyons Pride DOES support consoles. I will probably be using Bethesdas official system for mod uploads providing it does not involve signing up for their troll infested forum again. If that is their system, I will not be supporting consoles.

I hoping for a separate upload system from them, one that does not expose modders to the poorly moderated forums they run.

Also if it is possible, I will be using the main DLCs with my mods to expand the available resources I can use to make mods. So you will need some of the DLCs at least. I suggest buying the season pass before 1st March to take advantage of the current low price before the price hike hits.

Speaking for my self, I have found it a mistake to get too close to most developers, you get entangled in their communities politics, which includes the hate and anger over bugs, which colours a communities mood when a game is released too buggy. As we all know Bethesda have in the past released some of the buggiest games in the world.

Though not this time with Fallout 4, most issues where minor this time around and the fixes have actually been mostly improvements and better support for modern graphics cards. At least thats how it looked to me having played through the game 5 times already and seen it improve with each new game I started. I should add that the way Bethesdas games work, if you dont start a new character after each patch release, you will not see all the fixes in your current game. Some changes are remembered in your saved game and are not updated when a patch is released, others are not remembered by your save and are updated when a new patch is released.

So rule of thumb when playing Bethesda games whilst Beth are still fixing the bugs..... Restart with new characters often!

You may find that turns the game in to a pleasant and enjoyable experience instead of a buggy nightmare made worse because your character from Fallout 4s original release day is now conflicting with the fixes already made.

Food for thought.

fallout4logoBethesda have announced the first 3 DLCs for Fallout 4, posted some Geck/Creation Kit News and announced a Price Hike for the Fallout 4 Season pass.

So lets get this ball rolling with all this good news shall we.

Season Pass Price Hike.

We have plans for more. More than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features throughout 2016.

Given the expanded DLC plan, the price of the season pass will increase from the current $29.99 to $49.99 USD (£24.99 to £39.99 GBP; $49.95 to $79.95 AUD) on March 1, 2016. However, if you already purchased the season pass for $29.99, nothing changes - you still get everything at no additional cost— the full $60 offering of add-on content for the original price of $29.99. In addition, if you didn’t buy the season pass yet, there is still time: anyone who buys the Season Pass for $29.99 before March 1st will get all $60 worth of content. This is our way of saying thanks to all our loyal fans who have believed in us and supported us over the years.

Thats a $10 saving for those buying the Season Pass AFTER March 1st and a $20 saving for those buying it before March 1st. Also I would point out that I will be using these DLCs in my mods if its possible, so you will need them.

Creation Kit News

Yes they called GECK the Creation kit in their news announcement, maybe because its totally incompatible with the older system previous fallout games used. Papyrus is a game changer so mixing the Creation kit with the older GECK editors is probably a mistake, especially since they will no doubt be added to the wiki for it.

Anyway, this what Beth had to say about The Creation Kit for Fallout 4.

We’re also hard at work on the Creation Kit, which will allow you to create and play mods absolutely free. We’re currently testing both Survival Mode and the Creation Kit now, and more details will be forthcoming.

So thats more good news then. Remember they are hosting mods them selves this time, so they will no doubt be testing the new upload system with the editor too.

I came across a few screenshots showing a game called "A place for the unwilling" with a really nice art style set in what is described as Love Craft style enviroment. You get to strole around a city fighting, exploring, doing side quests.

Most of the best Adventures of the past had a good art style too that set mood and this one by AIPixel looks like its going to be a good one.
