The hunky-looking Fallout 3 remade in Fallout 4 overhaul, the Capital Wasteland Project, has all of a sudden cased development. "During this conversation it became clear our planned approach would raise serious red flags that we had unfortunately not foreseen". And as a result the "not taken lightly" decision to stop work was made.

"Recently we have communicated with Bethesda regarding our planned method to implement the voice acting and other audio from Fallout 3 Into Capital Wasteland". Projects like this have always existed in a gray area of the law but we as a team value our connectiopns with many memebers of the amaziong dev team that is Bethesda Game Studios. NafNaf95, as the project lead, would be fully liable for any legal, well, fallout resulting from the creation of the mod. We quickly realised we would have to replace iconic voices like Liam Neeson's, Malcolm McDowell's, Ron Perlmann's and of course phenomenal Eric Todd Dellums'.

"Without some of these voice fallout 3 looses its charm and personally I can't bring my self to replace Them (sic)", wrote Nathan. "If at any point in the future it becomes fully legal for us to continue working with the blessing of Bethesda and Zenimax, we will".

The Capital Wasteland Project has been cancelled following some sketchy legal issues.

The letter goes on to state that the team attempted shifting its methods in various ways, including re-recording dialogue, or requiring Fallout 3 to be owned in conjunction with an audio extractor. It looked promising. However, the developers have been forced to cease working on the project.

"They talked internally for a while about this and I believe consulted a lawyer".

That, then, appears to be that.
