FALLOUT OF NEVADA - MOD - Russian (original), English (translation - ongoing)
I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on here, so thought it worth putting out there.
While the English translation is technically not 100% complete, I've heard the game is playable from start to finish.
So far I've only seen the first 4-5 towns, and the text quality varies - it's generally pretty good, but occasionally looks like a Google Translate job (although so far it's always been understandable at the very least).
English notwithstanding, the writing quality in this is really, really good - probably one of the best mods to a game I've played. Multiple solutions to many problems - so far I've played a few hours and solved many quests, using a number of different skills, and the only time combat was used in a quest (so far) wasn't quite "traditional" combat either. Quests appear to have many outcomes, with many affecting future quests (and the game world).
Game length is said to be between Fallout 1 and 2 in terms of content. You could probably tell someone it's a secret unreleased Black Isle game and they might believe you.
Installing is currently slightly annoying because you need to grab the Russian version first, then update it with the English translation.
Russian version is here (should be easy enough to grab even if you can't read the page): http://fallout-nevada.ucoz.ru/index/fontec/0-5
. You'll need:
- the actual FN installer (should be 566MB)
- HRPatch (to get Fallout Nevada 1.02 HD)
- Maybe FON patch 02 (I grabbed it and applied it anyway)
You'll also need the English translation, latest is here as far as I know: https://yadi.sk/d/xwnnO1nJ3QnvSR
- Only apply the "standard" one, not the one for CE.
- Unless you want to play the "crazy edition" - in which case you can probably install and translate the whole thing from that zip (and I think you won't need the other three files above in that case).
Updates to the translation will likely be here: http://www.nma-fallout.com/threads/fallout-of-nevada-%D0%A4%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%BB%D0%B0%D1%83%D1%82-%D0%9D%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%B4%D0%B0.207311
