I finally finished my Fallout 3 mod for the workbench. It’s on Fallout 3 Nexus and you can grab it here. It has three plugins: one for just Fallout 3, one supporting only the Operation: Anchorage stuff like the Gauss Rifle and the T51B armor, and one master plugin that supports everything. It makes things a little more ‘realistic’ by making you strip out armor and weapons and make repair packs that you can take out into the field and use instead. Only the “high tech” stuff was affected…like plasma rifles, laser rifles, tesla armor, and so on…with everything else left alone (like assault rifles, raider armor, etc..). Not everything could be covered, though, because the script apparently has a size limitation that restricted me from adding in too much stuff, but it’s out in the wild for everyone to play with.
In other news, I saw this pop up in the past week…Michael Jackson’s arcade collection on auction. It looks like the King of Pop is doing a little spring cleaning, but what is in his collection is an amazing plethora of odds and ends that would be the envy of any gamer looking to build a personal arcade in their basement. Seriously, take a look at these:
But there’s more…a lot more. Leafing through the catalogs at Julien’s Auctions shows that MJ had a ton of other incredibly cool (or creepy?) stuff lurking in his collection. Here’s a taste:
The auction hasn’t started yet (it begins on April 22) and they’re still adding things (the last catalog listing personal memorabilia isn’t available yet), but take a look if you’re curious to see just what is going to be hitting the block later this year. If you’re interested in bidding, you have to pay a small fee and arrange shipping yourself. But even if you’re not, this is a lot more interesting than the Acclaim auction that was held several years ago that cleared out their corporate HQ.
