My job has gone rancid, more or less overnight.

We have a lot of elderly and vulnerable staff, who have been urged to go into the classroom this week. Bare in mind, there is nothing protecting them from the Coronavirus, besides masks and face shields. Meanwhile, they're having to sit shoulder to shoulder with a different kid, every half an hour, packed in a small room with around 30 of them.

Anyone who doesn't think that's very safe and doesn't wish to attend has recieved a lot of berating from the management and a fair few threats. It's clear that the new management look down on us but the level that they do so has only really been made clear this week.

Every day this week I'm seeing people I've grown up with, people that I respect and see as family leave in tears. All because our weak manager can't lead properly, so she has to resort to this rancid behaviour.

On top of that, our former manager got into an incident with them, which they are over reacting to. They've offered to 'protect' us from her but when it comes to the killer virus, we're SOL. I'm not sure I'll ever know the words that can express the level of contempt that I feel for this situation and our joke of a manager, who hasn't left her house since this mess started, gloating about how she gets to work at home in staff meetings with the higher ups.

The people that I work with are some of the kindest, most professional people I've met and what' shappening to them is unforgivable. I'm looking into a way out as there'll be places with jobs available that pay better and people treat you like a human being on top of it.

I wish my management the greatest of success in making the places that they run rancid shit holes. I cannot wait for them to be surrounded by incompitent guttersnipes who all hate eachother and fail time and time again as they cannot work together for more than ten minutes. I hope that she gets the loyalty that she deserves, when all of the people she's looked down on and try to manipulate over the years find themselves in a position, where they can royally screw her over and will do so for one reason or another.

Haven't really been able to express my disgust to anyone in my personal life, don't want it coming back on me, hence the vent.

I hope nobody else here is going through anything like this. Hope you're all hanging in there and are getting through everything as unscathed as possible. <3

I couldn't even get it to work. I installed it but the NPC that finds you at the start just never showed up.
I tried an abundance of possible fixes and was waiting for someone to find one that worked.

If anything can be taken from this mod, it's that Gamebryo/creation's dumbass NPCs should not be trusted with the important task of being the gateway into a DLC/Huge Mod! They're likely to fuck it up, by falling through the floor or hugging a deathclaw and you might end up completely fucked.

I never had that much hype for the Frontier, but I am looking forwards to Cascadia... I hope they don't end up with the same fate, but at least we know the warning signs now.
Same, I was a lot more excited for Project Brazil/New California. I actually really enjoyed that one and besides a few iffy things about it, it's mostly quite good IMO.
Frontier I was willing to give a chance, it seemed fun or potentially fun but they managed to screw it up, spectacularly.

Don't know anything about Cascadia, I'll have to look into it.

There is nothing that can be changed about the mod to fix the heap of garbage that was released to the public, its not anything like a "Fallout DLC," more like an unholy abomination of Call of Duty and "18th birthday" pornography.  It's not the slightest bit balanced or lore-friendly.  The NCR campaign is dozens of hours of mindless Michael Bay-esque action shooter gameplay, while the other factions barely manage to hit one tenth that quantity of content.  The dialogue feels less like genuine human interaction and more like appropriated erotic roleplay messages from discord direct messages, complimented by comically flat voice acting which often doesn't even line up with the subtitles.  If anything good is going to come from this mod, then it will be through hacking out whatever shreds of well-made content can be recovered, like pieces of scrap metal and electronics from a broken terminal, and leaving the rest of it to the dust bin of history.

Can people just STOP with the child fetishizing? I feel like we're at a point that we need to force every member of the general public to attend a class where they have to write 'I will not fuck kids' 10,000 on lined paper before they're allowed to leave.

I couldn't get this mod to work and was hoping a future update would fix it. Sadly it didn't. Would've liked to have seen how it turned out for myself.

It's a shame that so much work has ended due to the actions of a corrupt project head, moderators who want to play god and being unable to keep their fetishes out of it.

It sounds just like the Isle and a few other games and mods, all ended a similar way.

Maybe it'll come back, better for it, having had the weird shit removed and the perverts plucked from the Dev team but I won't hold my breath.

Unwashed Village / The Amusing Disaster of Fallout: The Frontier
« Last post by Sharkee Jeff on January 28, 2021, 05:36:18 AM »
Let me paint a picture for you.  A game in development for seven years, almost a decade, being hyped for that entire period.  The hype builds up near the release... a 2020 release date looms closer and closer.  There are a couple of delays, but people still have a fair amount of confidence in the final product.  Then, as the release is just around the corner, a few rumors come out... things sound bad.  But there's not enough time to react.  The game releases.  Then it all comes crashing down, as the entire gaming world discovers what a piece of shit was in the oven all this time.  Its taken off of big platforms, and this once hyped project has been reduced to little more than a joke.  Now imagine that after the release of Cyberpunk 2077, the exact same thing happens again except way funnier.

The Sexy Lizards

We knew a lot about the Frontier before its release.  We knew about the various factions and motivations, knew about the vehicles and all that.  But we did not know that there was going to be a race of horny lizards.  And there was.  There was a race of horny lizards.   They have sex with each other in a vault, they are horny lizards.  This is some very weird fetish stuff, and I do not like it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWXmkx4Vsn0  The team actually tried to hide this aspect of the game, there was hardly any mention of it.  Makes sense they'd be embarrassed by this.  Hmm, I wonder who made that part of the mod...

The Pedophile Furry Developer

One of the Developers is a pedophile and a furry.  The latter I don't really give a shit about, if you want to draw yourself as a wolf go ahead, but the pedophile part is not ideal.  In a Furaffinity post, he complains that  "art" featuring minors is banned, but he's done a lot more than complain about pedophilic furry art.  He's actually made some himself.  Not a great look for the mod, its no wonder that...

It's Been Removed From Steam and Nexus

It is now hidden from Nexus and removed from Steam.  On steam, the mod page says "Coming soon - This item is not yet available."  While this is very vague, the Nexus page describes more specifically the problem.

"Some deeply concerning news has emerged in the past few hours. We have been recently notified that one of our developers, ZuTheSkunk, had posted animated pedophillic content on their personal artist accounts. The items in question are deeply disturbing to the entire team, and we condemn them in the strongest sense. ZuTheSkunk has since been removed from the Development Team and banned off of our Community Discord. We will be conducting dialogue with members of the development team to hear their thoughts regarding the current situation and help make our decision more informed. We have stopped production and work on the mod to address the current events properly. More measures will be undertaken and a more detailed address will be posted soon.
The views, thoughts, and opinions expressed both in the mod, and outside of it, belong solely to the authors who write them, and not to the mod's organization, community, or other group or individual."

Speaking of the community discord...

The Community Discord has been Deleted

As I just discovered today, the community discord has been deleted.  There was no announcement or notification beforehand.  The discord server no longer exists.  I've been watching this discord server quite closely for a few months leading up to release.  During this time, though I was watching, I said very little.  I knew from the shit that went on in that server, that if I gave even the slightest criticism of this mod, I would be banned.

Good Riddance to the Community Discord

I do not miss the discord server, or the people on it.  It had notoriously power-drunk moderators who banned people for practically nothing.  A few bad apples ruined this project's team.  A youtuber, TKs Mantis, who has produced consistently decent fallout content for the past few years I've been following him, explained that he lost his position as a voice actor because he had Covid!  He was later banned from the discord on a whim, when complaining about, among other things, open racism on the team.  As were many other people, who were unjustly banned for civil criticisms.

Concluding Thoughts

A lot of the dialogue is terrible.  The voice acting is questionable, but I could forgive a community created mod for this.  The mod has weird foot fetish stuff in it.  Wild Wasteland undercuts the seriousness of various scenes, including a literal funeral scene.  There was a lot of work that was put into this mod, and some of the people doing that work were skilled and talented and passionate.  But now all of this work has been wasted, sucked into the garbage-eating black hole that is Fallout: The Frontier.

I forgot how much I hate the Brotherhood in this game.
I kind of betrayed them in the end, turning on that strike team at Mariposa and gunning them down.
I regret nothing.

I fished the game tonight. All of the companions died in the Cathedral as keeping them alive is near impossible. At least they went up in that epic explosion.
Tycho made it to The Master but got swept up in the crowd of Supermutants, couldn't even find his body.

It was kinda sobering, going in with a party full of chums and coming out alone. I don't think I've ever done a playthrough where everyone survives and shy of dumping them all before the endgame, I don't think I could but I do like the drama of them all dying so... eh.

I didn't realize how many of the endings are broken or missing. I got a few that were apparently impossible to get and triggered some stuff I didn't know was possible. Like I went to see Set, after The Master was killed and he gave me the location of Mariposa, having lines like 'Your desire, my need' and he actually seemed to respect me.

The Ending still suggested that they were overwhelmed by mutants though, despite them surviving the post waterchip slaughter.

The game also thought that I did Mariposa first, even though I did the Cathedral first... dunno why.
Apparently a bug makes that ending impossible but I strangely got it at the end of my playthrough, it's very weird.

I was sad that the Followers are doomed, regardless. Their canon ending is impossible to unlock, because the NPCs needed for the questline don't exist.

As far as I can tell, you can only get the 'the hub dies' ending as well, which kinda blows.

I also got the 'you didn't kill enough raiders!' ending, even though I wiped out the Khans and killed a dozen or so on the road.

I found this game to be even better than I remembered it. Has so many wonderful touches and such a great soundtrack, there's way more weapons than I remember there being too, I guess not seeing the Gun Runners made it harder to get a hold of them but the Gatling plasma/Gatling laser is insane! I doubled the size of The Master's army with that thing. :P

Game is a bit flawed in some places, a lot is missing and some of the things got on my tits a bit (having to put my weapons away, ever time I enter a city... >.<) but it's definitely a game to last. :D
