Fallout: New Vegas Total Conversion - The Frontier

Fallout the Frontier is an ambitious Fallout: New Vegas mod that will be set in Oregon, and it features 16 by 16 km map for you to explore. What was once a majestic and a bumbling city was reduced to shambles of its former glory. Fallout: The Frontier will provide main quest line, sidequests, a hunting system, new animals, and fire propagation.

The weather system has been reworked from the ground up, to bring us a real dynamic clouds and effects, and it will play a huge role in the Frontier. A total conversion mod for New Vegas, set in Portland, has also tanks you can drive. There is currently no official date on release, but the overall Mod status says it is about 75% complete.

As stated on the Fallout the Frontier website, the major factions in the Frontier are the Legion, NCR and the Scavengers. The Enclave and Brotherhood may play a small role. Other than that, Fallout the Frontier is filled with all new custom assets for armor, weapons, and buildings, Frostfall effects, custom emitters fx, volumetric sky clouds, and much more. The Frontier will also have bouncy, floaty space battles featuring new weapons and enemies.

It sounds like an impressive and ambitious total conversion mod for Fallout: New Vegas. Not to mention it features one of the first vaults ever created by Vault-Tec, Vault 6. Although the secrets of this subterranean will be revealed over time, for now, it remains shrouded in mystery.

"Mr. House may have saved New Vegas from being destroyed, however, The Frontier wasn’t so lucky."
