    Why Alpha?

    This mod has been in development by myself for a number of years.

    in the last few years I have been able to build a Dev Team to take the mod to a whole new level.

    I have released Alpha versions to mark the completion of major new core code Infrastructure or content.

    The Final Game concept is a long way from complete.

    The game should now be more or less completely stable, there are some known issues and bugs, but these should no longer be game breaking (as of Alpha3) Obviously please let us know of any issues you encounter!

    the game currently has a lot of missing content, including art, sound, text and a lot of faction specific content.

    Even in this early stage, as a team we think we have made something really exciting, and we hope to develop a following that will help us test and develop balance for the many concepts that we have already developed, and those that have yet to see the light of day.

    We are always looking for more team members to help with the development of the Mod, and in part this release is an advertisement for how far we have come, but also to demonstrate how much further we intend to take the mod and the help we want to get it there.

    So come take a walk in the Wasteland! It awaits the birth of your Legend!

    Faction Descriptions:

    We Currently have 2 distinct Faction Types:

    Vault Factions
    and
    Non-Vault Factions

    Vault Factions:
    Brotherhood of Steel
    The Master's Army (Super Mutants)
    The Enclave

    So what is the difference?

    Vault Factions:
    Vault Factions (VF) can only found settlements on Vault Features.
    This limits their potential expansion throughout the game.
    Vault Cities (VC) Will generally have better buildings.
    It will on average:

    Produce More:
    Specialist Slots
    Yields (Food, Hammer, Coin)
    Commerce (Gold, Science)
    Bonus Resources

    Produce Less:
    Commerce (Culture/Safety, Espionage)

    Buildings available to Vault Civs are marked with a (V) before their name.

    The distinctions between VF and Non-VF will grow larger as the Mod Develops.

    Every Faction will eventually have it's own Unit and Building sets, some buildings will be replacements like UB's are now, other structures will be unique to a Faction or Factions, giving them a Unique advantage or disadvantage over other Factions.
    The same will be true for units.
    Each Faction will have a Unique Playing style and your choice of faction will heavily influence the way in which you play the game.

    The Master's Army Discussion Thread (Post Comments Here)

    Super mutants, strong units, Slow growth, must harvest human populations to generate new supermutants, Perhaps only able to build a basic unit such as a 'slave/prisoner' that has to be upgraded to the better Super Mutant representing the need for a 'slave trade' infrastructure to grow the ranks of the army.

    Good tech, immune to radiation, positive effects from radiation, good health buildings, can build simple radiation based facilities, eg. 'Glowing One' hosipital, nuclear reactor, etc. Ghouls love the radiation.
    Possibly benefits from radiation tiles.
    Possibly through having the ability to build improvements on fallout tiles, perhaps by having a UU worker, this could add the interesting twist of the Ghoul Civ using Nukes to 'Terraform' the planet into a more comfortable environment for them hehe!

    Low tech, high population, large spread, lots of weak units good against animals. Low upkeep from distance and number of cities (each is a self contained village loosely banded together with the other tribes).

    The New Vegas Strip Discussion Thread (Post Comments Here)

    Leader: Mr House

    So far the Kind of Unique qualities I see coming out of the New Vegas Faction would be:

    Growth/Food Negative:
    Because of his policy of 'Super Rich Only'. He will have much smaller population cities than the other factions.

    Poor Human War Machine:
    So he is going to be able to produce less human fighters, because his pop. is low/slow.
    They will also in some way be weaker than most others due to a lack of motivation and loyalty, maybe incurring extra costs or some such as well, owing to the need to 'encourage' their cooperation.
    His Human Fighters will also probably be more focussed on the DOps side, as they are mostly 'Legitimate Businessman'...Cough...cough..

    Improved Robotic War Machine:
    The Securitron Mk2 was always ear marked by us to become a House unique unit, so they will have that.
    Robots will also be easier to build/acquire by them.
    Things like requiring a lower minimum population to build them.
    If he is the Science/Industrialist/Software Developer type, he will probably also have some good unique robot boosting buildings that will see his robots are better trained than average, as well as probably some kind of production boosts to robots, either with a unique civic(if we get that modcomp working) or through unique buildings.

    'Legitimate Business Partners':
    So he will have some stuff that links in with the eventual criminal elements of the game that I want to bring in, the big difference between Vegas and Reno will be Defensive Vs Offensive.
    Vegas is more interested in simply 'keeping the strip' business is booming and the money comes to them.
    The Reno's would be more expansive in their designs.
    (After all they invented Jet for this purpose)

    Tourism and High Rollers:
    The Strip will have access to a host of special high end tourist facilities, Casinoes, Restaurants and Hotels. I am thinking I will probably add a specialist type like a 'High Roller' that Vegas will have an almost exclusive access to.
    These guys will generate lots of money, and again will probably recieve some benefits from some Unique Vegas Civics.

    Faction: The Legions of Caesar (Future Addition)
    The Legions of Caesar Discussion Thread (Post Comments Here)

    Leader:

    Caesar (What was his NCR name? Full Name)


    Strengths:
    Melee Combat
    Espionage
    Slavery
    Public Order
    Coinage

    Weaknesses:

    Range/Firearm Combat
    Anti-Drug/Medical
    Anti-Robot

    Unique Qualities:
    Legate (Great General type Maybe)
    Praetorian Guard
    Centurions
    Legionary Decanus
    Veteran Legionaries
    Prime Legionaries
    Legionaries
    Recruit Legionaries

    Vexillarius (Possible Medical/Support)
    Frumentarii (Spy/DOps)
    Legionary Assassin (DOps)
    Speculatores (DOps/Scout/Explorer)
    Explorer Legionary
    Legionary Scout
    Blacksmith (Support/Heavy Melee)

    Perhaps some kind of Auto Raze City Feature, or perhaps an auto spawn of slaves upon city capture.
    Slaves can be turned into soldiers a bit like the Master's Army and Super Mutants. Perhaps the only way to get the 'best' Legion Soldiers.
    Crucifix Public Order Building
    Plenty of other 'Roman' Concepts to draw on for unique buildings and civics.
