Take your time all take your time

"What we want is to speak to a decision-maker, because if we could make it a standalone thing with their [Bethesda’s] permission, that means that people on gaming consoles could use it, which they currently can’t."

Unlikely. To be standalone it would have to be published on the PS/XB stores. The FOLON devs don't have a publishing license on either store. I don't see how they would actually expect Bethesda to go out of their way to not only publish the standalone mod for them, which isn't free, but also grant them a license to legally use and market the Fallout name.

Every time I see an interview from these modders they sound more and more entitled. Like when they were pissed off that Bethesda didn't tell them when the next gen update was releasing. Saying they were a big, popular mod and should have gotten a phone call. Sorry bud, you're talented and your mod looks great, but you're not some rockstar dev that deserves special treatment.

Id say theyre more focused and dedicated than a triple a dev team

You do this level of work for free

1) That has literally nothing to do with what I said. I never once criticized their focus or work ethic. I literally praised their talent as devs and I am absolutely going to play the mod.

2) They technically aren't doing it for free. They have a patreon that has more than 1,000 members.

"If we could" ... doesn't read entitled
They know the request's not usual but they just want to try their luck ...
Valve has been doing it since ages.
And they did hefty bit of work for the mod ... all they asked previously was just a prior official communication for a smoother initial intended launch and now some recognition, thats all.

Regarding your "l didnt say anything"

"Sorry bud, you're talented and your mod looks great, but you're not some rockstar dev that deserves special treatment. "

It sounds like you're just comparing them to a person who mods some female models in. Their mods are hard work and updates knwn in advance can really help keeping their mod from falling apart. IT REALLY isn't too much to ask for a dev or spokesperson from bethesda to give them an email for a contact person.

Bit unfair that. Publishers have their ear firmly to the ground when there are copyright claims/infractions etc. Like act pretty quick, but in this instance a little unfair of them to not give a heads-up to a well-known and highly anticipated project. It's not like it's just a some random clothing item or a single new quest. it's way more than that which is plain to see.
