I look forward to seeing this develop. The desert/arid themed maps are my favorite, it is a shame there has only been The Dust since the original game.

I will do my friend. And I agree with the “Arid” thing as well. I love that part about BL.

Time that I step in and show some of my work on this project (this is one of my “TDW” maps).

Take note that this is map is in a extremely RAW stage a.t.m. as this was just done in 1 day… Yes I’ve just began working on this map today, but I’ve drawn a sketch for my self in what kind of way I want it. If you get a “Skag Gully” feeling from it then you’d be correct as that is my major source of inspiration for this map. But as its name implies “Scrap…” it will be like a cross in between Skag Gully and junk.

The Scrapbelt

Thanks, look forward to our “5th DLC” Collab. Which will tell the story of the Fall of New Haven and the liberation of Sanctuary. (all cannon)

Why does this have the same title as my thread?

Notice the distinct The Dust Wastes between dem brackets. And I also explain that the TDW is part of our DLC which is the “Fall of New Haven,” so it should make sense.


New pictures! Check out that progress baby! XD

Hey, you think you could use some side quest ideas? I’ve had something on my mind recently. If you’d like, I could PM or e-mail you the whole thing. In case you’re still not convinced, one of the mission arcs has treasure hunting, time travel and Young Mr. Torgue “High-five” Flexington. Best of luck with the DLC!

Time travel = declined.

Do note that we are far off from actually implementing side-quests. Its one of the last things we’ll add.

Loving what you’ve done so far… Great premise for a DLC :acmaffirmative:

(The Gun Smith himself! :D) #19

Thanks man, I’m currently in the detailing stage which will be followed up by post-sfx scripting and hostile scripting and I’d say it would be a wrap for The Scrapbelt. After which I’ll move on to the Deep Cathedral.


I’d figure I’d leave all of you the pictures of my current progression before I have to send my laptop to ASUS for repairs. The new pic’s show the current status of The Scrapbelt! (some pictures are unlit as the lightning is still placeholder)
