This week we have a new modding interview with BGS forum member Sami Pesola of Canterbury, UK — otherwise known as CptJoker in the forums.
If you’re wondering about the pic above, it’s from his Enhanced Night Sky mod.
Back in March, we shared news that Planet Fallout had started a modding competition called Project Safehouse, which centered around creating user-made Vaults with The G.E.C.K. Today they announced the winners in all three categories — Personal Vault, Corporate Vault, and Government Vault.
Here’s a quick look at the winners, who each scored an e-GeForce 9800 GTX video card from the folks at nVidia.
Today we honor mods that achieved Hall of Fame status at Planet Elder Scrolls for both the months of May and June. Check out the links below to learn more about each mod.
Congrats to all modders for their fantastic work!
In addition the the Brink coverage, I thought I’d share some updates on WET, Fallout 3, and even Oblivion.
At Entertainment Weekly, there’s a new feature on 11 Videogames Spawned by Summer Movies, which includes WET as the game draws inspiration from Grindhouse flicks and the works of Quentin Taratino and Robert Rodriguez. Those seeking for information on WET should check out G4TV’s video interview with Lead Designer Ash Ismail. Additionally, new previews are up at Binge Gamer, NowGamer, and Ready Up!

This week’s modding interview is with ElminsterEU. Originally from Germany, he now lives in Australia, and indicates he has no plans of leaving. When he’s not modding, he works as a Lead Architect for a relationship database management system. His hobbies include reading science fiction and fantasy novels, pen-and-paper RPGs, swimming, and scuba diving. I guess the scuba diving wasn’t that great in Germany.
J3X, maker of the popular Enclave Commander Mod, recently introduced another great mod for Fallout 3 — J3Xified Driveable Motorcycle. As the name suggests (and this video demonstrates), the mod enables your character to ride a drivable motorcycle through the Capital Wasteland. As if that wasn’t cool enough, the bike comes equipped with miniguns, flamers, gatling lasers, and missile launchers!
J3X wasn’t alone in making this project. Props to VeliV who created the Drivable Motorcycle Beta mod, as well as other folks who have contributed to the project — Backsteppo, Odin_ml, Dragontamer, Rolandb, Skykappa, and DieHard335 — who created the trailer.
Looking to add some Fallout 3 decor to your gaming room? Gamer Graffix has new skins and wall graphics to make the room more “Game Shui.”
If you’ve got an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, they’ve got Brotherhood of Steel skins for your console. If you’re looking for something to put on your wall, they’ve got a Wall Graffix collection featuring the Brotherhood of Steel, Vault Boy, and a Fallout 3 logo. If you want to go all out, they even have a massive 33 x 60 Brotherhood of Steel Wall Graffix that’s 5-feet tall (shown above)

Last year I posted about Morrowind Modding History, a site dedicated to preserving mods created for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
I got an update recently from site founder Fliggerty — letting me know that the site is accomplishing what it set out to do. With the help of some passionate members in the community, the site now hosts over 5000 mods from other now-defunct mod sites.
Cheers to all the members that have helped this site become a success!
It’s been a while since our last modding interview (don’t worry, more are on the way), but we return this week with an interview with Joel Klausen — better known as throttlekitty in the BGS forums. For a living, he works as an airport skycap at the local airport. He enjoys art and tinkering, so it’s no surprise to see hm modding games. When he’s not modding you might find him at a local diner or coffee shop, or hiking in the Black Hills during summertime.

At Planet Elder Scrolls they’ve announced their April Hall of Fame mods for Oblivion and Morrowind. Here’s a look:
Congrats to these modders on their hard work.
