    You can not distribute ANY assets at all from any Fallout game period. That is Cease and Desist faster than you can say r00fles!

    You CAN use the FOnline engine and make 100% of your own original artwork/sounds etc... as long as you are not using ANYTHING from the original Fallout games, you are actually OK (for the most part).

    What about the whole requiring the original CD files thing? Does that work?

    Yes. Like the Exult people did, they made their own engine that requires the original game to be installed (of note, and why they are not shut down is they DO NOT have ANY of EA's copyrighted artwork/sounds etc... in any of the Exult distribution downloads. Just the engine and tools that manipulate the original files). It uses all of the original art/sounds etc... but they manipulate those files with external programs to work with their own proprietary engine.

    THAT is the ONLY 100% way you will not get a C&D letter from a Publisher. For the most part anyways....

    Strange. We worked on FOnline since years, and never did anyone from Bethesda ever contacted us. They sure as hell know that the game and all the other stuff existed, yet they never cared. We even had some butthurt players who got their characters banned for cheating to write mails to Bethesda, and the only answer they got was something along the lines of "it's not our shit kthxbye".

    Surf Solar just lied so he doesn't have to work on his game so he can go skating and drink foreign beer.

    We were in contact with Interplay, but I don't see how that would influence Bethesda. Besides, I've just asked cvet and there was never any specific permission or similar.

    Oh shit this is a bad piece of news. I'm waiting for this mod for ages! Looks like Todd and Pete are afraid that Surf Solar's freelancer work could be way better than their AAA high-poly shit.

    I'm simply taking everything fallout related off of it. That should do the trick :)

    Why not rip the assets you need from the users' Fallout 1/2 CDs/installation directories? It seems like such a simple solution that lets you continue development.

    Then fuck the Beth lawyers and keep on developing WR!

    I wouldn't care if it didn't look so promising. Don't give up on your dreams, man!
