Hi hello from Poland! :)

Few days ago I started working on total conversion mod called NuclearWorld (name to be changed, any ideas?)

Here are some informations about my mod:

1. Mod HIGHLY based on Fallout 1/2 world, but with different lore.
2. No aliens. (WHAT!?)
3. No filler research, every topic should give you SOMETHING
4. Almost every weapon useable in end game, no more 56743 variants of one gun- every weapons has advantages and disadvantages and should be different from the others.
5. You start with one Shelter- you will be able to build more in MID/LATE game. But in EARLY/MID game you are stuck with one- choose carefully what to buy.
6. High replayability- You can/have to choose between factions. Who is gonna be your enemy? Who's gonna be your ally?
7. You cannot build everything in your shelter. Do you want farms? Drills to get scrap metal? Maybe you need a weapon workshop to craft better weapons? Or maybe biolab with Stimpaks? You have to choose. Your base cannot provide EVERYTHING.
8. You start without radar. WHAT? HOW I'M GONNA SHOOT UFO's!? Well guess what, first of all there are no aliens! You will be able to take down human aircraft later in the game.
9. Factions are very important. You can choose to side with them giving you option to recruit members of the faction and more stuff to buy. But you can also just rob them... it's up to you!
10. Limited space in every shelter. You have to decide what to do. Maybe workers, so you will be able to farm, get resources or craft stuff? Maybe researchers? Or maybe you just need that space for soldiers? Your call.
11. Limited storage space. You cannot have 657843 same items- decide what's useful and what not.

For now nothing is set in stone- many things I will change later probably. But I will try to stick to what I wrote. I will try to update this topic daily so I can keep track of my progress.

Looking forward to ANY suggestions/opinions!

Mod status:  KINDA-PLAYABLE
Currently working on: Research Tree Here you can see how it looks right now and what's already implemented into the game!  https://mm.tt/1864369884?t=4L7It5vNTp
Looking for other modders: NO I will be looking for help later in the process of making this mod. For now I have to create hmm... basics. I don't want to waste anyones time if I will stop making this mod and I want to have solid base before letting anyone to add/modify stuff.
YES. The mod has basic structure now and we are open to get more help! Here are the links:

So, like the Hearts of Iron Fallout mod, but for XCOM? This sounds fun, although I suppose you can borrow many things from Piratez with little issue, even if no aliens are present.

One can't never have enough good Fallout games.

Never heard of HoI Fallout mod, but it sounds interesting!

And when it comes to burrowing stuff I want all content to be original/free/not-copyrighted. I don't want to use assets without permission :)

I was joking with the Piratez thing, you just have to ask Dioxine permission to use stuff from his mod and that's it, it's not like he can copyright his own mod. As for the Fallout mod, I meant this:

This mod looks like fun! I'm gonna try it, so thanks for showing it!

And good to know! Maybe later in the process of making Fallout-like mod I'm gonna ask, if some of the assets would be fitting :)

That mod idea sounds really interesting ! I genuinely interested in that idea.

I think you might rework the whole ufo concept since, in vanilla game UFO's are the main source of resources and research topics. But some genrtaed thru deply ruleset missions (like maybe settelment defence or expedition of abandent military base) might be a good idea.

PS. if you need some graphics help, let me know. I like draw guns, armour and tiles sometimes :)

I'm glad that you like the idea! :) And yeah, there are no aliens, there are no UFOs!

You have to help mutants, ghouls and human-based factions! ...or you can raid them yourself!

But I really like the military base idea! It gives me some other ideas too! Gonna work on it today :D


And thanks for the graphics making offer, personally I SUCK with it haha. My partner is interested in this mod aswell and she wants to make some sprites, but she has some other work to do first. So... I would be MORE than happy to have your help :) But first I'm gonna release the mod- then you can check if you still like it and if you still want to help! :)

Thanks for posting! :) :) :)

EDIT: Also, I'm streaming the making of the mod 4 times a week here: twitch.tv/khaligufzel

My friend Filip H told me he's working on your mod. And he is a staple of hard work and high quality standards, so I'm sure this project will become an excellent mod!

Great idea and brilliant implementation, i look forward to see more news from you.
