UPDATE DECEMBER 22 2018:

So real life caught up with me, and in between eating glass (long story, but some food was tainted), catching a bug in the hospital (norovirus) and the run up to Xmas it's been carnage.  I've also decided to change the questing part of it.  Rather than being a simple "go and fetch" quest, I've decided to break it up so the backstory of several protagonists can be explored.  It's intended to be a sort of origin story and covers parts of New Vegas (I'm not recreating New Vegas, but it is referenced a lot, and there may be a sort of prequel mod for NV at some point, just don't hold me to that), and as I'm trying to remain as lore friendly as possible I need to do some research.

It's also going to episodic.  I'm not going to release it all in one go, but over time with updates.  I've decided this mainly because of what the story developed into and how it expanded.  Most of it will be told through holotape entries, letters and dialogue.  If you don't like reading a lot then it might be an idea to go for the basic version which just adds the radio station.

One final thing.  It's going to be very dark.  The story will contain themes that are disturbing, and most definitely not for a young audience.  These aren't just there for the sake of it, and will alter the quest as some will involve making choices which will be a lesser of the two evils and what you choose will alter some of the future quests.

Please bare with me, it will be worth it (I hope :) ).



OVERVIEW

A little radio station that plays 21 radio plays from "Sci-Fi Radio" which was a real radio series years ago, the War of The Worlds radio play, and a new station called Commonwealth Sci-Fi Xtra (CSFX) which will have around 30 episodes of the Dimension X series.  It adds hours of audio to the game under CSFR and CSFX in the Pipboy Radio tab, or with the radio for settlements (under the decorations > Miscellaneous section in the workbench, although there isn't one for CSFX at the moment).

Ads are now mandatory.  The enormous outlay of operating not one but two radio stations in the Commonwealth can't be borne out any longer, so advertising has started for everyone.  While it's currently confined to CSFR, there will be ads coming to CSFX (eventually).  They're only around a minute long, and some are truly amazing.

The current version 2, doesn't have any quest associated with it, although there will be a small quest to unlock CSFX very soon.  There is also rumours of an advanced tuxedo and an overpowered rifle.  Sadly this is only known to people who practice the occult arts known as "Console".  Simply summon your console and chant help primarni 4 (tuxedo) or help devastation 4 (gun), then note down their references and type player.additem xxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxx is their reference).  Remember, with great power comes great responsibility, and no matter how much they cry, never feed them after midnight.
