Unwashed Village / Re: The Amusing Disaster of Fallout: The Frontier
« Last post by Cheeto Bandito on October 09, 2021, 11:15:23 PM »
Dear god its one of those train wrecks your buddies tell you about full of hookers drugs boos and drugs, and the entire time your like bull shit and they keep telling wait till we get there bro. You crest the hill and see the train wreck laided out before you. Play the game and nothing will ever be the same. Legit its extremely impressive from a technical level the story is at best silly at worst insulting to the FO fandom. Its a playable mod and you can have fun with it but the story is ass. From what I have seen from TK and others 80% of the issue is the creators team and fans are a toxic bunch of jerks. From lying, to questionable story directions, buying assets,  and raiding 4chan /v/.  just such a bizzar trip on how we got to the final destination.

Unwashed Village / Re: What can we do to restore the UV to its former glory?

/sprinkles some more necromancy on here.

The only real way to see a more lively community would most like to either make a Discord or a Guilded server. Lot easier to post/communicate but that'd be if people still wanted to on a day by day basis.

Just my 2 cents, nothing against web forums as I do kinda miss the old days of the internet!
I've been thinking something similar. Web forums are kind of a dead thing.

Even the Straight Dope message boards went to Discord. Though, they customized it to be very message-board style rather than MS-Teams or Slack style as most Discord communities seem to be.

My lady is much younger than I am and I used this to show her how things have changed, was nice to see this again (and looking over some of those familiar faces back on that board.)

Discord can work fine as forum software if the features are set up correctly.

The Straight Dope message boards use Discord and have been for many months now.

Unwashed Village / Re: Thoughts on the end of Bethesda's Forums

Truth be told, I find it hilarious.

I have nothing against the Bethesda forums but they were more or less used as justification for my friends and I getting kicked off of Tes Wiki, back in the day. The delusional admins at the time said that the Bethesda Forums were laughing at the wiki and disliked it, because of us. Not because UESP rendered it redundant, ten years before it even existed or because it changes admins every year or the fact that most of the articles were empty at the time and even their best stuff didn't hold a candle to uesp.

No, it was PURELY because they had a roleplay segment on their board and the Beth forums were laughing at them over it or looking down on them or something.

Less than ten years later, the bethesda forums get shitcanned and my friends and I have great communities from our exile. Meanwhile, Tes wiki lost a big chunk of its userbase and spent years getting most of it back, going almost completely dead at one point and having several years of a revolving door for Admins and Mods.

As for the dying out of forums, I find it to be quite sad. I miss the days when this place was a bit more active (which is funny, because those days were considered a 'dry spell.')

I suppose we value quick communication a lot more now. Which isn't the worst thing but it just doesn't have the same appeal to me.

Unwashed Village / Thoughts on the end of Bethesda's Forums
« Last post by Dessert Ranger on August 20, 2021, 06:45:32 AM »
So I'm not sure if many of you have followed/heard that Bethesda is planning on sunsetting their forums and in favor of using Discord instead.
Their full comment on the situation: https://bethesda.net/en/article/3nf1F08LHgUEmSt7EqA9ru/bethesda-net-forums-to-be-sunset

I recognize the somewhat sunsetting of forums in general and the prominence of things like Reddit as an alternative, I don't think I could ever see Discord as a replacement for a forum. I see forums as a good place to make a topic and hopefully have lots of dedicated input from different people (poor Empty threads), but compared to the chatroom setting of Discord, it does not seem intuitive in highlighting important subjects relevant to the community unless it's constantly spammed which may result in people just muting the community and disengaging. Many say that this is Bethesda's way of ignoring feedback but who really knows, I guess it may be cheaper to just have a discord server for people to complain about their buggy ass games.

It may be the nostalgic goggles of a time when forums were hot stuff, but I was wondering what do you think? Especially for a company still operating and producing games.

Unwashed Village / I found the original Interplay Forums
« Last post by The Hanged Man on August 18, 2021, 05:38:42 PM »
Back in College, I got obsessed with looking up old Unwashed Village stuff and at some point I found the original Fallout Feedback Forum from Interplay, including some of Grim Reaper's post and the birth of the Unwashed Village.

Then I lost it for nigh on ten years and I was so pissed with myself for it.
 

When TK covered us, I brought up that I found it but lost it and the feeling came back. I had to find it again and I did.

I was poking around the Wayback machine and thought I'd have another stab at it, so glad I did. :D

Unwashed Village / Fallout Power Armour in Doctor Who?
« Last post by The Hanged Man on August 18, 2021, 09:21:23 AM »
A new trailer for an audio story dropped the other day and I couldn't help but notice how one of the characters on the front cover was wearing T-45 power armour. On closer inspection (with help from a friend who is smarter than me) we deduced that it's NCR Salvaged Power Armour from New Vegas.

No idea why this happened, I'm assuming its been stolen as I doubt anyone could keep their mouth shut about an official crossover or something for this long. Still, it's pretty awesome that two franchises that I like are coming together like this. :P
