New News is Good News!

Hey there, everybody! My name is Samantha and I'm the new news manager for the TTW development team. Starting now, I'm going to be working on keeping this community updated with news about the project and its continuing development. This is a great community for a fantastic mod and we know you all want to know where we're headed next, and it's my job to let you know!

Rest assured, the team is hard at work making TTW bigger and better. While we don't have a release date for 2.3 yet, it is on its way and I will be providing consistent updates on its progress.

I just wanted to take a moment to say hello and let you know how excited I am to be a part of the team. If any of you have any questions for me or for the team, feel free to let me know and I'll answer them the best I can! I'm looking forward to watching this project expand and I hope to be able to share my excitement with each and every one of you.

Thanks, Chuck! I'm proud to be a part of such an awesome team and I hope that I can do the project justice!

(On a more personal note, I'm a huge fan of your work! Your conversion of DCinteriors makes the Capital Wasteland a lot more engaging. The train transition between wastelands is also just beautifully immersive.)

Perhaps there should be an individual "News" tab for you instead of having to post in the forums, that way everyone will know what is going in case the thread gets pushed down!

Fangirl, Chuck didn't just convert DCInteriors, he made it. He's a regular Renaissance man, is our Chuck.

Well this is posted in the Development News Forum, and the homepage automatically has a news thread. What else do you suggest?

Oh gosh I had no idea! Sorry for not giving you enough credit, Chuck. I'm afraid I'm not 100% up on such things. I'm sure I'll get it all figured out eventually!

I only just saw it at the Home section, I first saw it under Recent Content and falsely assumed that it was a forum post... That was my bad.

What I meant was that we should have a News hyperlink on the Main Menu...

Ah yeah, I would agree if it weren't automatically on the front page. Thanks for the suggestion, on rereading I may have come off a bit snippy, not my intention.

As I said in the team only

As I said in the team only thread, welcome to the team Fangirl . Don't mind Chuck, once you praise him a bit about his work he will be happy again that or beer...

It is great that you will be the News Development person around here, it is an important job to keep all of the community informed and no one around ever had the time to do it (me guilty of it as well). Although I hope you don't get too burden by community members questions and stuff . I haven't been on for a while so I didn't get the chance to know you better but you seem quite fit to be in the team and do this job quite well.

Keep up the great work (by the way I am addicted to smileys around here so if you see a post with tons of them in it you will know it was made by me instantly ).

With best regards.

Thanks, Risewild! It's great to feel so welcomed by the team and I'm definitely going to do my best to pull my weight and keep the news page up and running! I'll be happy to answer people's questions here (or on my blog for that matter) and I'll try to keep the community up to date and informed.

See you around the site!

Thanks, PeaceMaker! I hope I can keep you satisfied with my updates! Modding can be a slow process sometimes, but when there's news to report, you can count on me to report it!

Awesome! It will be really

Awesome! It will be really cool to have updates on the team effort. I have been part of a Mod team in the past and everyone benefits from more exposure. It's has been difficult to keep hoping when the same front page has been up for months. This is all good!

I hope everyone remembers that this is for fun. Not pay, it something to be enjoyed and trolls just kill the joy.

Thank you

Don't lose hope, I haven't

Don't lose hope, I haven't had time to do much for TTW in months, but it is still on my to-do list, I just have other obligations. The installer is the primary hold up, in order to fix problems many people were having it needed a complete overhaul and that is in testing by the team. There are also a few things I wanted to fix but didn't have time, but they are non-critical and have been set aside so that we can get 2.3 out soon.

You can certainly count on me to remember that! I'm doing this because I love Fallout, I love this mod, and I love this community. And I know the whole team does as well!

Will be cool to be updated.

Will be cool to be updated. When I found this site a couple months ago, I originally thought the mod was dead :P Turns out there's a quiet, dedicated community here, and it's probably one of the nicer atmospheres I've seen around the web (Bethesda forums can be rather intimidating, and some of the third party ones aren't as welcoming as they seem), but I almost didn't find it - it took a second look and a reinstall to realize there was still stuff going on here. Not that it's the teams fault, but as many others have said, it doesn't hurt to be told that stuff is still going on :P

...

...

...

I'm glad we understand one another.

Modding is, unfortunately, a slow and time-consuming process and there isn't always much to report which probably explains the long abscence. That said, it doesn't hurt to be given occasional reminders that we're still hard at work, so you can rest assured that we're still giving it our all!

Hi Fangirl, nice to meet you

Hi Fangirl, nice to meet you and all that :)

Regarding progress updates, I can understand not giving release estimates, things like holidays and hospitals can completely change the ETA in an instant. But, how about a 'xx% complete' till next version in the original post? That number is more manageable, and can never slip back, and the team just change it when they feel it's moved forwards enough?

It's arbitrary. We don't even have a goal, really. The next version is almost ready, we are having a few problems with the installer and I haven't had a whole lot of time to work on it.

That might be a bit beyond our capabilities at the moment! I'll be sure to post updates as they happen here on the site though. Maybe after 2.3, we can think about the idea!

Veering off topic onto the topic of newsletters... Mailchimp.com is actually a really decent newsletter site that allows you to send up to 2,000 subscribers at a time. I don't know how many people would sign up for it, but I feel we'd get less than that.
