You’ve been “inspired” to help find some information. A locked door and a quirky woman stand in your way.
A “simple” quest I made to learn much, much more about the Fallout 4 Creation Kit. Yes, I did all the voice acting! (So, no separate female NPC or PC voices – for now.)
Oh, a couple folks have made videos featuring this mod – including friend to dog and modder alike, AlChestBreach! Feel free to look them up, but I won’t show them here; that’d spoil the fun…
Behind the scenes
This started as a somewhat larger Twine scene, which I edited down and created in FO4 to learn more about NPCs, scenes, and sandbox idles. The sub-basement and extra NPCs were added after, to learn about level building, factions, vendors, and more.
Hoondoon is a composite of the hyper-energetic party gals I’ve met at clubs and parties; her name is an adaptation of the Chinese word for “chaos” (hÃºndÃºn, æ··æ²Œ). Ricky is also based on the kind of focused, purposeful partier you find in the darker corners of an underground rave.
There were two problems with the scene re-write: there’s a line that makes no sense without context, and the player character has no real motivation other than curiosity. The line can be re-recorded, but I needed something to help discover the quest and compel player interest. I won’t give it away, but I think it works pretty well to inspire the PC. Thus, the full name, “Inspiration: Bring Up The Party”.
Sub-basement, mid-production: Built, furnished, eye-lines defined, lit, patrol set; uncluttered, undecorated, navmesh unrefined.
