This Week In Modding: Final Fantasy 14 Crack Down, Portal Remake, And More ...

Fallout, Skyrim, and Portal are all featured in this weeks mod round-up. Fans are tired of waiting for a remake of the official Portal game, and have started working on one themselves. We also have an update from the Skyblivion team, giving us an update on the ambitious remaster.

Elsewhere, we see the director of Final Fantasy 14s. The MMO is set to clamp down on mod usage, including eliminating suspensions and perma bans to any rule breakers. In this weeks mod news round-up, there will be a few surprises.

In the new Engine for 2''s, portal fans are making their original appearance.

It''s unlikely that the original Portal remake would be done soon. Instead, the developers are taking the picture upon themselves, recreating it in the Portal 2s engine. Although both games utilize Source Engine, the sequel also features quite a lot of upgrades, such as improved graphics and lighting. Both games are experimenting with the same core of Portal 2 while maintaining the rest of the gameplay. It''s possible that the developers will continue to modify the first version of the original, and this is certainly true.

The Devs for Skyblivion Reveals Their First Look At the Remade Oblivion Elven Set

The Skyblivion team continues to improve its development this week, giving us a good look at an elven weapon set. This week, the new models look stunning, much improved upon their 2006 designs. Now, they actually look elven in appearance, with much more sophistication and elegance than they are with locations such as Bruma and Bravil. This also allows the team to apply a shiny new coat of paint to the much-loved RPG.

Nearly everyone can interact with the Fallout New Vegas "Truce" mod.

It''s quite difficult to get through Fallout: New Vegas without skipping a few factions off. In fact, a new mod allows you to understand some of your differences diplomatically and negotiate new contacts. However, you can convince Mr House that the Republic, Brotherhood, and Kings arent his enemies, among others. It''s a fantastic way to mix up your next playthrough, and a much less effective approach at that.

The multiplayer version of Fallout 4 has been recreated.The Point Lookout DLC for the 3rd party is now available.

Want to play Fallout 3, but aren''t willing to stand up to its shooting capabilities? As always, a modder has recreated the Point Lookout DLC in Fallout 4, allowing you to make a nostalgic trip back to the Capital Wasteland without the jank. It''s now available, even if it''s not completely finished. All of the DLCs content have been restored in a fresh coat of paint, which is both excellent and effective.

Square Enix Cracks Up on HUD Mods for Final Fantasy 14, and Game Director Naoki Yoshida promises to improve the UI.

This isn''t a remake, but it was too important for us to mention in this week''s round-up. Final Fantasy 14 players among you should make sure they don''t have any mods installed, even if they''re synthetic. This comes as many as the game''s UI will be penalized, according to Yoshida. Official improvements will be made, although he did admit this will take a while.
