Beta Version 0.82

Just added a new update file (0.82) to fix the Nova Drainage corrupted cell of doom. Somehow the cell got corrupted during file merges or something. All I had to do was create a new copy of the cell and that worked a treat, thankfully! Never seen a bug like that before!

If you already have version 0.8 or 0.81, then you only need to extract the esm file from the 0.82 archive. Otherwise, follow the instructions in the Readme file.

Endless Walkers?

Endless Walkers to feature in the wastelands of Colorado?

"The Endless Walk is the punishment in which a ghoul is stripped of every worldly possession, including clothing, and sent marching into the wasteland. No ghoul has ever come back from the Endless Walk.

On those rare occasions when one survives more than one year in the wasteland, they turn into wandering, voracious creatures on an endless quest for flesh. Due to their prolonged, open exposure to the desert sun, high radiation, and other hardships of the wasteland, these unfortunate ghouls, who were banished naked, look like walking, sun bleached chunks of beef jerky. Their constant exposure to the hot sun and high levels of radiation has caused their skin to toughen into natural, hardened leather, but at the same time, their brains have been completely cooked.

Endless walkers who have been in the wastes for so long become creatures of instinct and will attack anything that moves in a vain effort to quench an appetite that can never be quenched. Also, their skin is very tough and they strike with their claw-like hands with surprising quickness. Fortunately, endless walkers do not travel in groups. In fact, it is a rare occasion when someone comes across one, though most who travel this side of the wasteland like to keep their distance from the ravenous creatures. Though encounters with Endless Walkers are rare, when someone does encounter them, they are assured to never forget the encounter, if they survive."
