Fallout Online: Ashes of Phoenix
« on: February 10, 2015, 10:37:48 pm »
I've been a part of this game since it's conception several months ago, and I wanted to share it all with you (and hopefully gain some recruits in game   ;D).   

Ashes of Phoenix
is based off of Fallout 1 and 2, but the entire world/locations and art have been redone. Everything in AoP (barring the original fallout stuff that made it in game) is original. It's based in post-apocalyptic Arizona, specifically phoenix ( Lol Ashes of Phoenix I know right).  4 Factions are warring over "The Core"......aka the ruined skeleton of the city. 

There are:

The Lawyers

Self proclaimed Sheriff types who want o bring law & order to the wastes.


The Brahmin Boys

Good ol' boys, farmers, and backcountry folk alike banded together to form this democratic mob of sorts. They want to bring democracy and "freedom" to the wastes.

The V-Technologists
 
A bunch of former scientists and descendants vault dwellers make up this faction. They have an emphasis on Energy Weapons and are driven by pursuit of knowledge.


And Finalllllyyyyyyyyyy................




THE FAMILY
 

Basically a bunch of Mafiosos, Hookers, Addicts, Thugs, Pickpockets, and Drug dealers that have banded together under "The Don". Their mission is pure and simple: profit, business, and a little bloodshed.

The Family is my Faction, and they get a kickass hotel as an HQ. Not only that but you're close to important crafting materials on the map.


In the stickied topics here you'll find a guide to the different faction HQs.


I strongly recommend choosing the Family, as they have a lot of really friendly players. I also will not be able to help you out with equipment or extra firepower if you choose to pick a different side.


I should mention this game is sort of team-based, your faction members will help you out. Large fights happen often in the center of the game map, or, "The Core".  The game revolves around the Core, with different Zones providing different benefits. Factions fight over the zones so their vendors can have better items. Owning a zone also means NPC patrols will roam it looking for enemies, and the zone will display a message if enemies are moving through it. Scavenging is a big part of the game, as it should be in fallout, and each zone corresponds to different types of loot. For instance, If I wanted Polymers and Kevlar to build armors, I would head over to the PV Polymer Lab zone and scav around a bit. If I needed pipes for guns I'd head to the water treatment plant (Family HQ is located near both of these). The gameplay is extremely unique and anyone who's a fan of Fallout should give it a try.


WARNING

If you're familiar with fallout, you know that it is turn based. This iteration isn't. It's in real time, with Action Point Regeneration based on your Agility stat. This allows for faster, more dynamic combat truly fitting of the fallout series.




This is the core, mostly owned by The Family at this exact screenshot.








In these last 2 the Brahmin Boys and Family are Cooperating to take on Vtecs and Lawyers.












I've attached a couple screenshots below and I have a few more for anyone interested.

Have you just gotten into this? It looks like it has the potential to have crack like qualities. What is the potential to meet new people through this game?

You know all I have is tunnel vision for one game right now.

No, I've been into it for several months, I just got around to making a post about it haha. I definitely think this game has potential to recruit, I have a Platoon base in game and invite people to play in TS all the time.  Most of the people in the game are mature enough, you kind of have to be to play the game effectively. If I had a few people rolling with me all of the time recruiting would be easy.  There's also a Platoon area on the Ashes of Phoenix forums I could make a post about it in.


And while I share your tunnel vision, I love Fallout too much.

There is no time for any other game once Homeworld comes out. NO TIME!!!  NO TIME!!

Man, I just bit the bullet and bought the 980GTX.  I have never spent so much money on a video card in my life.  Hell, I've built whole computers for just a pittance more than the price of the card! It'll be worth it though and my g/f encouraged me to get it as well.  What does she know? She spends too much anyway!

Don't you think its kind of funny how we say "recruit" still even though we really aren't "recruiting"?  I mean, hell, technically, we don't even have recruits anymore.

Looks cool! Been forever since I played an isomorphic fallout game.

Yeah next time I see you on and I have time I'll hop on. I'll just check teamspeak and see if you're in.

You won't see an updated TS window on our site. We just moved hosts. You'll have to login to see who is on for a bit.
