Fallout editors now/later? by Odin - 6:24 -
Chris Avellone posted a poll on the Bis forums asking if BIS should release the editors for Fallout 1 & 2 now with no documentation or later with documentation:
I'm posing this poll as a hypothetical question. No action may come from it, but I am curious what you guys would think about BIS releasing the Fallout editors.

But before you cast your vote, some disclaimers.

One, these editors are not the holy grail. You will not suddenly have a light shine down on you from above and allow you to instantly create any Fallout scenario you require - especially since scripting and dialogue are a different beast altogether. Furthermore, after playing around with the editors for five minutes, you may discover that your eyes are bleeding and a strange rash is forming on your fingers - and whatever you do, don't scratch.

Two, BIS could not offer on-line support at this time or even provide the support documentation required anytime soon. The few people (maybe 2) who even remember how to use it are currently very busy with in-house projects. Given a few months, we might be able to put some documentation together, but our ability to support it on-line is unlikely.

Three, this wouldn't include the source code.

So, my poll concerns this:

1. Would you rather have the editors as soon as possible without waiting a few months for documentation (which could be provided later) just so you could play around with them? Or...

2. Would you rather wait until all the documentation is in place and then get it at some point later down the road? I don't know when this would happen, or the extent of documentation that would be avaliable (again, I don't know how much the editor folks remember about it, and we don't have a programmer avaliable to dissect it), so it may not help out in the end.

In any event, this poll is purely hypothetical, and again, no action may come from it. But we're curious to hear your opinions.

You may thank Mr. Sawyer for pushing the idea, Feargus for listening, and Darren Monahan for permission to post this question.
Thanks guys !!!! Now gitt on over and vote!
