A very happy Hearth’s Warming to all!
Novel Idea here (you know, like every other time). I won’t keep you long today. I just wanted to let you know that we won’t be doing updates for the next two weeks. You know, Christmas/Holiday/Hearth’s Warming, etc.
However, it doesn’t mean that we won’t be busy! I will be doing a lot of backend work to set up for some efficiency and reporting improvements on our internal systems.
As I haven’t received a response from the admins of the Nexus (and I strongly suspect I know the answer), I’m also going to be preparing our internal forums for the potential launch of “The Manehattan Network,” a central hub for all MLP and Fo:E mods for Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Skyrim and Fallout 4. (And maybe other games too!). I have no intention of hosting any mod directly on this site, but I intend this to become a database where everyone can find and discuss our favorite mods. Hopefully, some great collaborations can come from this. However, if this is going to work, I’ll need your help. You’ll need to spread the word and let everyone know about it so they can join up.
After all, we’re stronger together!
I also intend to get some bug fixes into Smuggler’s Run in the next two weeks, so you’ll have a fun new version to play with in 2016. And don’t worry, we plan on doing preview mod for Fallout 4, though details on that are completely under wraps (deep inside my head…it’s a scary place, so don’t try and get them out).
Remember, we’re still looking for folks willing to help out! We’ve opened up all positions, but you need to have samples and experience. We’re essentially creating a full-fledged DLC here for both New Vegas and Fallout 4, so bring your A game!
We’ve had a communications snafu with the audiobook, so I’m sorry to say we’re still on hold for that. But as soon as I get the new version, I plan on updating all of the YouTube videos.
We’re also looking for anyone who has experience in creating visualizer effects for YouTube videos (specifically for our music videos, not the audiobook. 😉 ). If you’re interested, let us know!
Have a great Hearth’s Warming and we’ll see you in 2016!
