2022 edit:
There are two legacy continuation mods for this project:
Both mods above fix the issues with this one, DO NOT USE SOTS WITHOUT ONE OR THE OTHER, do not use both.

A note from the authors:
Due to increasing demands from our personal lives and the current climate of the world, we are unable to finish this mod and we feel it is unfair to its users and fans to keep progress on it delayed for a time that will never come. We have discussed this as a team and of those who are left as developers (Baerthe and Crypt) we agree this is the best move for the project.
As of today, we are opening up the permissions of the mod and releasing the final update under CC BY-NC 4.0 licensing. We are ceasing all active development. This means the mod is free for you to issue your own updates, revisions, fixes, expansions, whatever you like, as long as you credit us directly and do not use anything we have made for commercial use. Thanks for the fun times and I hope to see the community again when we take up modding on another game and when time allows.
Peace. If you want to release a comprehensive patch or upgrade to the mod and want it added to this page, please dm Baerthe on here or Discord.

Strange sounds and horrible monsters creep into the Glowing Sea from parts unknown; are you brave enough to crawl into the depths of the Earth and go beyond and below the Glowing Sea to face the madness and horror that is HADES itself?! Poison gas, vile Ghouls, Fanatical Atomites and crazed beasts crave your flesh in the dark underground world that lives beneath the surface of the Glowing Sea. The world of Hades is not for the faint of heart. Are you strong and brave enough to reach the end of the Underworld itself and find the grand city of Elysium? Adds over 65+ new Locations in and below the glowing sea. More Loot! More Fun! More Thrills! This mod is still in production and not all content is established.

XBOX 1 VER: https://bethesda.net/en/mods/fallout4/mod-detail/4053490 It is TWO ver. behind.

What we release is finish content and we try to not have working or unfinished content in the mod; However, we will try to fix and add to locations as we go! The mod is basically feature-complete at this point. We, however, need you guys to test it since it is so damn big.

Current Ver:1.50 Beta July 2020. Codename: Final Beta

Patch Notes:
Currently the mod is in final Beta. All of the content is in the mod but may contain bugs.
We have added:
Entire Swamp zone (a handful of locations)
Giant Tree Area
Several New Underground locations.
We added a lot of stuff and fixed a lot of bugs... Please report more bugs.
-Tweaking the nasty radiation damage in Lethe
-Reworked Fanatics with new variations and set levels instead of leveling with the player (Level 60 minimum) also custom faces
-Reworked Daemons, balancing stats to be less bullet sponges but also more dangerous, also adding new features such as functioning nests that spawn Daemon Grubs, as well as Daemon meat and eggs with recipes for crafting Hyper
-Reworked Hyper drug, will now serve as a late-game XP booster, sacrificing health for increased XP gains, useful for high level badasses but dangerous for low-level softies
-New faction - the "Swampfolk" with multiple level variants and a new weapon unique to their faction (Level 50 minimum)
-New faction - "Miner-Bots" with four variants, randomly spawning along-side miner ghouls in the new dungeon, Southrock Mine (Automatron will now be required for this)
-Many new locations and accompanying lore, some of which are very unique and unlike anything else found in the game (some stuff not in the screenshots yet)
-Swamps EXPANDED (Crypt's old mod) has been merged in and the new locations reduxed for the Swampfolk faction, so note that Swamps EXPANDED will not be compatible in the next update, nor will you want it in comparison to the new SOTS versions of each area.

New locations
-North Styx
-Fantastic Comix
-Styx Safehouse
-Vault-Tec Supply Depot
-Vault-Tec Warehouse
-Vault-Tec Factory
-Hope Police Basement
-Sparky’s Gun Shop
-George Washington Station
-George Washington Lobby
-Church of the Prophet
-Dusty Room

-New Faction: The Arisen, a faction of friendly ghouls who have sought sanctuary in the deepest parts of Hades

-Wallace from Wallace's Bar now has a custom dialogue with working voice
-Hannibal from Fantastic Comics has a custom dialogue and voice
-Sammy from Broadcast Station Delta now has a custom dialogue with working voice
-The first two variants of Arisen Guards, one male, and one female found guarding Hannibal

-Two Hyper-creatures, the Daemon, and the Charon
-Heavily re-worked Fanatics, including new armor, sets provided by CarnageFiend which have been properly balanced.

-Absolver, a special .44 with unique effects and firing sound
-Loot containers found in Hades have special lists to spawn SOTS-themed items, such as Hyper and the custom consumables
-Heavily re-worked the consumable items from CarnageFiend's Church of Atom Over-haul to fit South of the Sea, they will now be found throughout Fanatic-heavy areas.

-Styx Ambient Track
-Players will find a dialogue option with Hannibal where you can turn in Hyper for caps, the quest has not yet been created but the dialogue is there
-Daemon and Charon NPCs emit a firey effect that will still appear when they are underwater. There is not much we can do about it without completely removing the fire effect.
-The Arisen Guard currently comes in two variants, one male and one female, but we have at least two more variants per gender in the works, with a total of at least 6 possible voices that the Guards will spawn with.
