The interface looks enough like Bethesda's editor to be authentic, and includes features not seen in the regular GECK. Are these real, or a photoshop? No one knows.

Working PipBoy 3000s and Wearable Tech [ Community -> Article ]
Posted by Manoil | Related News Items Sat 26 Apr 2014, 12:15 AM


As wearable technology sees an industry boom, NASA-contracted group "Team Reno" has created a fully-functional PipBoy 3000 that provides users with numerous features including a sensor display, communications array, and geiger counter. What is more impressive is that the device was made by 3-D printing.

The device was created by the team of Colin Loretz, Ashley Hennefer, Andrew Warren, Christopher Baker, and Ben Hammel (collectively known as “Team Reno”). The device can sense relative humidity, altitude, latitude and longitude, atmospheric pressure, ambient temperature, and radiation.

The most impressive part is that this was designed as part of a 48-hour challenge with readily available components and a housing created using a Makerbot Replicator 2. The team is planning on also adding a bluetooth heart rate monitor.

Ivanpah Solar Plant Goes Online [ Community -> Article ]

Ivanpah Solar Plant - Release Photo

Today marks the official launch of Ivanpah, the world's largest solar energy power plant. The plant, located just southwest of Las Vegas in the vacinity of Nipton, has been the subject of both praise and criticism along the course of its development; as of today, it is generating in large excess over its demand as part of California's power grid.

Gizmodo discusses the story posted on NRG:

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG), through its wholly owned subsidiary NRG Solar, LLC, today announced that the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is now operational and delivering solar electricity to California customers. At full capacity, the facility’s trio of 450-foot high towers produces a gross total of 392 megawatts (MW) of solar power, enough electricity to provide 140,000 California homes with clean energy and avoid 400,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year, equal to removing 72,000 vehicles off the road.


Fans of Fallout: New Vegas will recognize the developing Ivanpah power plant as the inspiration for the game's location, "Helios One," a functional solar power plant in the Mojave Wasteland. While we usually have mixed feelings about Fallout predictions becoming reality, this is a rather positive development.

You can read more about it and view photos at Gizmodo or go directly to NRG's release article. Also, you can follow the plant's demand-vs.-supply in real time here.

Fallout: Lanius PAX Teaser Trailer [ Film & TV -> Update ]
Posted by King of Creation | Related News Items Mon 15 Jul 2013, 2:21 PM
More info on Film & TV: Fallout: Lanius

The teaser trailer for Fallout: Lanius has been released. Check it out below along with the press release.

Perth, Western Australia- (July 16th, 2013) ENCRYPTION FILMS and DRACOGEN INC. are proud to reveal the PAX AUS Teaser for ‘FALLOUT: LANIUS’.

‘FALLOUT: LANIUS’ will have its World Premiere at the first annual Penny Arcade Expo in Melbourne, Australia on the 20th of July 2013. This huge event has been sold out for months.

Director Wade K. Savage and Producer Stuart Mackenzie will reveal the film to a massive and excited audience as apart of their eventual campaign to release the film online. Excitement for the film has reached fever pitch.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the film” Savage commented; “It’s exciting, blood soaked and sexy. It has a great sense of pace and drama, with a really stylised look. I’m over the moon with how it’s turned out”.

Producer Stuart Mackenzie followed suit "After all the blood, sweat, tears and blood that went into creating this project, it deserves to premiere on a grand stage. And there is no bigger stage than PAX. I couldn't be more excited or terrified to screen "Fallout: Lanius" to a packed house in Melbourne”.

Executive Producer Steven Dengler of Dracogen Inc. was a principal supporter of the project from the onset “It's a true pleasure to have played a part in bringing this story to life. I'm a huge fan of the Fallout games and the Fallout universe. Wade and his team have created a gripping vision of one of Fallout's most compelling characters”. He continues "The writing, acting, and direction are amazing, and the production quality rivals studio releases”.

Dengler also went on to comment on the nature of crowd-funded Fan Films "We live in amazing times. Dedicated groups of fans can produce professional quality content based on their own vision, not what a studio decides will have the best monetary return. And fellow fans can put their own money behind it and help make it happen. It's wonderful”.

The film raised nearly $20,000 online in late 2012 and has been continually teasing more info via their Official Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/FalloutLanius).

“FALLOUT: LANIUS” is a blood soaked high concept action epic, which will explore the origin story of the primary antagonist "Legate Lanius" from the 2010 video game "Fallout: New Vegas".

STORY SUMMARY

On the brink of ruin, the Hidebark people are about to be wiped out by the slaving organization, Caesar's Legion. However, their most ruthless warrior would prefer death to dishonour. "FALLOUT: LANIUS" will recount how a single man brings ruin to his people due to his lust for bloodshed and victory.

ABOUT THE TEAMS

ENCRYPTION FILMS is an independent film production company headed by Director Wade K. Savage. The company's sole ambition is to create entertaining films,that combine story, style and substance.

Founded by Steven Dengler, DRACOGEN™ is committed to helping fun and awesome things happen. We back some pretty amazing tech companies, new media content, and fun creative projects.

Fargo Strikes Again: Torment Kickstarter Is On [ Game -> Preview ]
Posted by Tofu Man | Related News Items Wed 06 Mar 2013, 3:53 PM
More info on Game: Torment: Tides of Numenera | More info on Company: inXile Entertainment | More info on Person: Brian Fargo

Seems someone suddenly found a new lease of life, huh? Kickstarter hasn't been kind to everyone (right, Chris Taylor? (no, not that Chris Taylor)) but it's been kind to some. And some of those aren't going to be shy in making use of it again. What use? Torment: Tides of Numenera is the name and it's purporting to be not-a-sequel (wink, nudge) to well known Black Isle limbo-opera Planescape:Torment. Bullet points?

  • Torment is a single-player, isometric role-playing game.
  • You will play a single, specific character, though you will encounter optional NPC companions you may choose to include in your party.
  • The story-driven game will have a rich dialogue system and approach similar to that of Planescape: Torment.
  • The game will be developed in the Unity engine for PC (Windows), Mac, and Linux platforms.
  • The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.
  • The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)

You say you want more conveniently arranged info from the horse's mouth? Alrighty then...

  • A Deep, Thematically Satisfying Story. The philosophical underpinnings of Torment drive the game, both mechanically and narratively. Your words, choices, and actions will be your primary weapons.
  • A World Unlike Any Other. The game has a fantastic, original setting, with awe-inspiring painterly visuals, imaginative locations, truly offbeat items, and massive feats of magic. In Numenera, however, "magic" is actually something surprisingly different.
  • A Rich, Personal Narrative. The story is thoughtful and character-driven—epic in feel but a deeply personal narrative, with nontraditional characters and companions who have their own motivations and desires that drive them throughout the game.
  • Reactivity, Choice, and Real Consequences. The game emphasizes replayability and reactivity, and your choices will make a real difference. You can play the game with a different approach and discover entirely new pathways. Most important, we won't tell you how to play. The best ending is the one you choose, flowing naturally from your actions throughout the game.

So, it sounds, err... dead serious. Unlike the video. Because, yeah, you can't have a Kickstarter without a comedy skit.

Ha... ha... funny, right? Hum... yeah. I'd keep Mr. McComb away from coffee, just playing it safe.

I keep hoping someone tells Fargo to sod gaming and pay Warner Bros a visit. In the meantime, if you'd like to help ol' uncle Bri and his boys at inXile have a shot at the game, use this link right here (not like they look like they need it, the guys just went up $100k (into $200k/$900k) in the time it took to make this post, but hey, maybe you wanna reserve your digital copy or something). Who knows, maybe after this additional round of free pub, the guy may finally decide to answer our questions. Providing he's not auditioning for the new Ben Stiller movie.

UPDATE: Done deal! After just one day, Fargo & chums have amassed 200% their proposed target ($1.8M), so expect stretch goals sometime soon.

Radiated Wasteland [ Game -> Preview ]
Posted by King of Creation | Related News Items Thu 31 Jan 2013, 6:54 PM
More info on Game: Radiated Wasteland

Radiated Wasteland is a new browser-based MMORPG. Check out the press release:

“Post-apocalyptic browser game Radiated Wasteland in open beta on the 11th of February 2013”.

https://www.facebook.com/RadiatedWasteland




Browser game studio Pixel Pandemic announced that it will open up its free beta of Radiated Wasteland the 11th of February 2013.

Radiated Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic, free-to-play browser based MMORPG. The ambition of the development team has been to adapt classic gameplay features from the great RPGs of the past two decades to the browser format.

“We feel that there are way too few challenging browser based RPGs for gamers like us who are or at least used to be hardcore gamers. In my opinion the market is flooded by cute farm animals and boring linear gameplay. We wanted to develop a complex MMORPG with a complex skill and character customization system. We also wanted a game that featured tactical turn based combat gameplay and exploration of a huge map with multiple NPCs, story driven missions and other things to engage in. We feel that we have achieved that with Radiated Wasteland and hope to develop things from the open beta with a focus on what the game community wants like we have been doing to great extend with our 1st game www.zombiepandemic.com”, says CEO Thomas Jacobsen.

The storyline is set a few decades in the future. A giant comet has crashed into Earth causing massive destruction and turning what is left of the world into a giant radiated wasteland.

The player's character is a young adult, who has spent his/her entire life in the confines of Oasis 4, a sheltered underground village. This tiny community has survived for almost three decades, well-protected from the radioactive clouds that suffocated the surface of the earth. Although there has been news of other underground cities migrating to the surface, the people of Oasis 4 know that the surface world is rife with danger. Mutants and raiders rule the surface, and anyone who tries to pioneer into the wasteland is met with lethal opposition.

As the scavenging parties find fewer and fewer resources, Oasis 4 is faced with the difficult decision to finally migrate to the surface. You are among those sent to explore this strange new world and carve out a new path for your people.

Radiated Wasteland is developed by Copenhagen based Pixel Pandemic and the 2nd game following on up on the survival horror MMORPG www.zombiepandemic.com.

DAC Needs Help [ Community -> Editorial ]
Posted by King of Creation | Related News Items Sat 12 Jan 2013, 9:46 AM
News related to Top Story: DAC Needs Help

Hi everyone,

Let me preface by saying that I’m not asking for your money in a crowd-sourcing campaign. Over the past 10 (!!) years that I’ve been involved with DAC in one way or another, we’ve gone through highs and lows, periods of intense activity and inactivity. Most of the time, I’ve tried to build up activity on the site, but in the last year or two especially, I just haven’t had as much time to give the site the attention that I’d like to – and that it deserves. With that in mind, I’d like to ask for help. I don’t really foresee me being as active as I used to be anymore, so in order to keep the site going we need people to step forward and help run it.

The most obvious position to help build momentum on the site is that of a Newsposter. Over the years, a lot of you have come forward to help out with news, but I need someone (or hopefully more than one) person to help consistently post news, editorials, original content – anything at all. There’s already a pretty established framework for exposure (via Twitter, the Facebook page, etc), so that end is fairly simple. It’s the synthesising and posting of news, rumours and speculation from around the internet on DAC that I need help with. It’s always been a big job, and I just can’t do it by myself anymore.

Newsposters are important, but the position that is most sorely needed on DAC is that of a technical administrator – someone who has the skills and knowledge to code. Specifically, we need to upgrade our forums – to phpBB 3 or something equivalent. We’re flooded with spambots, and our captcha-style defences just don’t work anymore. I’ve never had the skills to handle these sorts of things, and it’s showing more than ever. The site itself seems to work, but there’s always room for improvement.

There are other ways we can work together to improve DAC. We’ve had ideas in the past that semi-start, but then are never followed through. We had a big push to make DAC t-shirts a while back, as an example; lots of people talked about submitting designs and it seemed like it was going to be great, but then nothing happened with it. There have been weekly-features by members of the community that start, but then kind of quickly die out. There are some good features that are fairly consistent – I can think of Wasteland Radio as an example. That’s the kind of thing we need more of to survive as a site. I’m sure we can come up with some great ideas.

So, to sum it all up (TL;DR), we need technical-skilled people who can help upgrade the forums, newsposters who can consistently post news, and new ideas that are followed through with from the community. It’s been a while now since Fallout: New Vegas came out, so, with Fallout 4 on the horizon, let’s bring DAC out of this rut it’s been stuck in and into a new Golden Age.
