Coffee, eyes and aching


Tonight has been productive. Wrapping up on the heavier duty parts of Wave One, we are both feverishly working away on revising touches and whatnot to bring you something special (00:36am GMT as I write this and going strong)

So as another little piece of info, see below the complete list of features you'll expect to unzip with Wave One...

Wave 1 Features
  • An introductory and follow-on optional quest pulling you into the background that sets the stage for Waves 2 and 3
  • Interchangeable TARDIS Coral & Nautical Desktop Themes
  • Upgradable Sonic & Laser Screwdrivers, each with 5 distinct modes
  • Temporal Engineering Skill with upgrade unlocks
  • TARDIS Piloting Skill with control and feature unlocks
  • 5 Interior Rooms to configure your Ships interior with
  • Primary and Auxiliary Systems to configure and upgrade
  • 3 Flight Modes;
  • Spatial Randomiser with 100 Mojave locations,
  • Vortex Flight with endless XP Gringing capability
  • and Programmable Flight, opening up any previously visited locations to you via the ship Navicomp
  • Real-time Flight Effects from explosions to 'seasick cam'
  • CSR! 'Context-Sensitive Response', an unscripted, randomised flight command system
There are also additional features scattered around the ship interior, from medical vendors to food cube machines so be sure to explore and activate everything as you go.

Once released, the plan is to patch any major bugs not found by our testers, but otherwise, the key thing, is to take a break.

Once we've taken enough time, we intend on cracking on with Wave 2, which will introduce 7 Monsters, old and new, to the Mojave, along with a continuation of the story started in Wave One, additional rooms in the TARDIS and more items and equipment to craft, upgrade and charge into battle with.

Until the time is right,

Demeggy

Kris said...

Wave One - TARDIS
Wave Two - Monsters/additional rooms/items

Ok cool. Thank you for all of your work on this mod. I haven't been following for two years like some, but I can still recognize the time and care that went into this mod

q:why did we see the silent in the trailer for wave one when its going to be in wave 2? 2nd q:did it take 2 years just for wave one or setting up all the waves for testers and when you are done with wave 1 you will bug fix wave 2 and 3 or did it take you 2 years just on wave 1?

dude just shut up comments like that do not help in anyway, all it will do is piss off the mod makers

ok wait you mother fucker how is this up setting them all I am asking is a question are you the fucking guard of this place how come I am the only one that can not say any but you can say whatever the fuck you want

Raverbane said...

Looks sweet!

Raverbane said...

I did have a couple of questions. I dont follow the board too closely. So, if these are answered there. I appologize ahead of time.

What level would be recommended for a character to be at to start this? ie Is the Tardis near Goodsprings or in the middle of the Deathclaw Promontory?

Also, can there be a sidequest called "Ood World Blues"? hehe

Keep up the great work!

Cwang92 said...

Hello anonymous. I'm sorry that you feel offended by my fellow fan's comment... And we hope that that in no way effects your enjoyment of the modification upon release. Most followers of this mod are a little sensitive to any sort of response which seems to challenge the Development team's efforts and sacrifices, and for that I apologize.
To answer you previous questions:
1) If I can have any speculation whatsoever of the trailer, than I believe that the appearance of a Silent could have either been an easter egg to be found within Wave One in order to ramp up excitement for the proceeding release.. or it is just a snippet from Wave Two that was meant to incite anticipation for the overall mod similar to my first theory.
2) The implentation of "Waves" into the development of the mod is a relatively new (at least to the fans' knowledge) idea... That being said, the previous two years of Demeggy's, and his trusty cohort Spyduck's, time was spent designing and customizing both the TARDIS, its varying functions, and gameplay characteristics for the eventual release. Before the institution of "Waves"... The Team had planned upon six unique episodic releases to be rationed over a timespan similar to the organization of Doctor Who. (A beginning introduction episode ultimately leading to a culmination of a finale.) This plan was scrapped in favor of the leaner, meaner, and more streamlined structure you are familiar with today, with all the base designs already having been created, but just needing to be put into place like an elaborate puzzle.

Now with your questions answered... I'd like to point out that we are all a collective fanbase.. here to enjoy the project these two bright young men have created through seemingly insurmountable odds and even more stressful toils. We are all here to enjoy the fruits of their labor, and we gain nothing from trying to "metaphorically" tear each other's throats out online. We are a community.. and we have to act as such. Keep in mind that that is not solely aimed at you Anonymous, but also any others that want to harass anyone simply because of the way they are presenting themselves within the comments section.

As always... Have a "fantastic" day!

cwang92 cant wait for this mod I was planning on watching some matt smith stuff but I watch them already keep up the good work and thanks for the info

cwang how do you know slient might be in wave 1 when you cant rember they where there them (this is not a question just a random comment on the silent}

Jerosh said...

Hoorah! Happy ending! Always makes me feel good inside when these internet conflicts get resolved. As rare as that happens.

Cwang92 said...

I don't believe it was specifically said within the boards.. But I do remember there being some question similar to yours and it was answered by Demeggy ( I think. There might have a Silent involved because I'm having trouble remembering.) Upon the start of the mod, I think Demeggy said it would be best, though not mandatory, to be a mid-range leveled character, so as to not cause too much peril at your own expense. The location of the TARDIS, though still not confirmed to date, is going to be within Gibson's scrapyard (or some other scrapyard. Like I said I'm having trouble remembering.) It would be better to not have to start from the intro of the game, as it would be easier to travel to the designated location then.

Cwang92 said...

I don't know. "Eye-Drive" maybe? Why are there marks on my arm?

Cwang, you da mang!

I also got a story for my 'doctor' it started in the capital wasteland I found a base called U.N.I.T it was empty the only one there was me I went into a room and then appered a blue box it looked new and old I could not found a single spot of radation so I went inside.....I could not forget that moment when I came in it was bigger on the inside something told me to press this button and then my head started to burn and then I know every button switch on the TARDIS it was damged left by its owner I decided to fix it. Day 2:I got all the parts to fix the TARDIS fixed it up and it can now do what it was for.....saving the universe Day 55 in the TARDIS: The TARDIS punctured a hole in time and space I had to fix it now or else the universe dies. Hours after last entry: ghost are in the machine I trapped it in a door and found all the cracks in the TARDIS time to fix this. Day 60: I have became a timelord when the TARDIS crashed back at UNIT don't know how or why I just am. Day 100 I have tracked the slient to the Mojave Desert. Day 101: I have trapped the silent deep into the tardis and lanched him out into space. Day 200:I decided I will stay in the Mojave Desert and turn back into human and keep my timelord watch deep inside the TARDIS I have left clues leading back to the TARDIS and just incase I left one live for myself in case I get hurt.....goodbye. [that's my story about my guy from fallout 3 lcog and gitm crossing over to fallout new vegas hope you enjoyed it

Kris said...

The Quest will trigger off automatically, and is set a year in your character's future... as for that, I don't want to give any spoilers away... so in short, the TARDIS cannot be 'found', because it's found by you.

Wave 2 does indeed contain an Eye-Drive, and that was a Silence you spotted correctly, and as our most faithful follower Cwang pointed out (who pretty much feels part of the team as he's been around since the LCOG days...) they've been inserted into Wave One for a little something of a buildup to Wave 2.

See if you can hunt them down, I'm sure the people of the Mojave would be appreciative...

thatguy said...

dude i cant wait this sounds awesome thank you and the rest of the team for all your hard work you have done and are still doing :)

Simsparrow said...

*loads shotgun* They shall be killed on sight...... I'll hunt them down with my mobile phone.... box...

Oliver Harper said...

So kris you said you added the silent, I was just wondering if they're aggressive at all? sorry if this has already been answered.

Kris said...

Can't guarantee their inclusion with Wave One, might have to remove them until Wave 2 as we've stumbled across a filthy little bug...

DoctorWhose said...

Dont wanna fix it first and then release them with Wave One?

Kris said...

Short answer? No. We're aiming to get Wave One up ASAP and if that means pulling a feature which was only there because in honesty, we forgot to remove it with the Daleks, Cybermen et al, then so be it. They'll be in much more abundance in Wave Two anyway, including the TimeShip interior...

Oliver Harper said...

Kris you and the team should take it one step at a time and do what ever is easiest for you, I look forward to having a chance at fight some of the monsters but hey when the tardis is released I'm sure we can all manage a while to wait for the monsters ;D

Alex said...

Just please make, regeneration and rad resistance optional!
Regen screws your skills and rad resistance made the game a lot easier.

Best regards

Kris said...

Regen has been carefully balanced to prevent that from occuring. Not only do you have the option, but it retains your human skills so you can switch back to them later if you so wish.

Alex said...

Thank you :)
I had to remove "Ghosts in the Machine", after I finished it ofc, because of that.

Congrats and respect for your hard work.

Anonymous said...

So you forgot about the Silence? You made them so accurate you forgot about them

DoctorWhose said...

Alright Kris, thats understandable. :)

Raverbane said...

This is gonna sound totally geekish, but too bad. :)

The funny thing is April 7 is my birthday. And I am looking forward to this much more than any b-day present that my mates are getting me.. lol

100 Locations, how many was there in LCoG I dont think it was anywhere near that, seriously impressive. I'm sure you would make the creators of Doctor Who proud with this mod.

daniel malpas said...

does the waves mean wave 1 = episode 1 and wave 2 = episode 2 or just all waves are waves for episode 1?

amren jolly said...

episodes are just the old layout, only waves are being used now.
wave 1 = wave 1
episodes aren't a consideration anymore.

I understand why they put the TARDIS in a scrap yard because in the first ep of doctor who we saw the TARDIS in a scrapyard where the camloen circuit shorted out

Anonymous said...

Stop begging for it to be released, it'll be out when it's out.

Cwang92 said...

Just for future reference, there will be no release date, unless the team chooses to disclose otherwise, which if previous griefs prove anything, I seriously doubt. The mod will be released when its released. Just gotta take it one day at a time...

is cwang a tester if not he sould be a part of the team or playtester

Cwang92 said...

Why thank you kind sire... Made me smile. But... I can't really be a play tester, as I declined to sign up for the open beta last year on selfish reasons (i.e. I didn't want to miss out on the finished product by sampling with the developmental work). Besides, my computer is a terrible piece of [EXPLETIVE DELETED]! It sucks a lot. When the mod releases there's only a small chance my computer could even withstand it... Given that the actual game can only play on the lowest of the low settings.. and even then it lags. For that reason alone all I should provide is moral support, just like all my fellow fans-in-arms.. as anything else would feel like a hollow gesture in comparison to the efforts of the Fallout Who team. Sorry I'm ranting, but I had to explain... Thanks you though kind sir/ma'am/celestial-being!
