Near-Total Overhaul Mod for New Vegas
Fallout: New California aka ‘Project Brazil’ is finally available after 7 long years of development. The project is highly regarded and popular in the Fallout community as an ambitious project for Fallout: New Vegas.
Story-wise, the mod intends to bridge the gap in the lore between Fallout 2, 3 and New Vegas. It is the year 2260, the Enclave has one last squadron left in California. Meanwhile, the rest journey East on the call of the President. Furthermore, the New California Republic is on the verge of economic collapse. Their political structure wracked by deep corruption that goes to the highest office.
This of course opens up the west to other factions who wish to take full control. This includes Raiders whose various factions are under the warlord Juan Elsdragon. There are also thousands of survivalists who are continually resisting the NCR rule.
