...and enjoy the various Holiday's this time of year brings I'm compelled to write the first and most likely only News Post of 2013 on TRS.
It seems odd to see the old 2012 and beyond post on the front page still, and it makes me pause and take a look at how slow this site has gotten. It seems like only a short time ago that there were a dozen or more active members here on the forums. Now we are down to single digits, with new posts coming in sporadically and with longer and longer gaps of inactivity.
I know I will be criticized by the last few active members for writing this however I don't think it can be denied any longer. The Radiated Society is no more. No longer is this one of the few remaining beacons of hope in the desolate Wasteland, now it is merely the irradiated remains of a once great community that has fallen into disrepair and ruin. Those few of us still here are just holding on, trying to survive on the few remaining scraps that remain.
I don't know how much longer this site will be here, the cold embrace of the digital reaper grows ever closer and its icy hand will one day drag http://www.stgfc.com down into the dead domain advertisement hell that awaits all expired domains. So before that day comes I'd just like to say thank you to all the past and current members of The Radiated Society for all the fond memories. Thank you to the Fallout Community for all the years of entertainment, and finally a thank you to the Fallout Modding community for allowing me to be a part of two of the great projects of their time. Rest in peace FanMadeFallout, I'm still sad to this day you never made it. Also to Mutants Rising, which is still in development and going strong!
So for as long as it lasts I'll be here, watching out for any who get lost in the Wasteland and stumble into our community and either welcome them in or help them along on their way. As we all know nothing last forever and all good things come to an end, but there is one thing we all as Fallout Fans can count on never changing...war, because as you all know. "War never changes..."

Happy New Year and welcome to 2012, as a new year dawns and we all shake of the dust of the last year we here at The Radiated Society look forward to a fresh start and all the possibilities the future have in store for us all.
This site has been in a slow death spiral for the last two or so years. The last news post was on February 9th of 2011, almost a year ago. Unfortunately this is a sign of the times, the smaller/older Fallout Fan sites are slowly falling away into obscurity and or oblivion, never to be seen again. We have managed to keep the site out of the nonexistence of oblivion thus far and hope to for a few more years to come.
We have tried to keep the community alive, but as we all move on to new and exciting things, as our schedules become more hectic and full and as we find less time to spend here the site has slowly spun down to stagnation and inactivity. The Community is barley alive with only about 6-7 active members.
Over the past few years plans to revamp the site, to update its look and back end to include additional functionality and new features have all been planned and even worked on (very extensively in some cases). Even redirecting the url straight to the forums to help hide the unused front page (which has not been implemented as of this post). Unfortunately these plans have never been implemented only adding to the appearance of death to the site.
As this new year begins it's hard to imagine that things will ever return to the activity levels of three or four years ago. We all hope that if you are reading this that you stop in on the forums and join in our conversations. New members are always welcome!
However realizing that all good things must come to an end we hold out hope that we can push off that end for another few years and ask you to join us, it's not just about Fallout in our Forum, in fact it's mostly just some friends hanging out sharing stories and having fun, so please feel free to join in. Never fear however we still know our Fallout, and enjoy many other games as well.
The Radiated Society Preservation Committee was established to house all the old memories of the community. With user activity as low as it's been this area has now expanded and grown. Let's all work to create many more memories to file away in the Committee's Halls.
Thank you to all our members over the years for contributing to our community, for sharing your good and bad times and allowing us to share in your lives. To any future members we look forward to your arrival!
We hope you have a safe, productive and exciting 2012 and that you will join in with us for the ride.

No The Radiated Society is not dead, even if all signs point to that most logical of conclusions.
Actually perhaps T.R.S. died and now we are back in Zombie form!
Nah that isn't true either, unfortunately we are no longer as active as we once were. With so many other Fallout Fan sites out there these days it seems that TRS has been passed over for younger prettier sites. Well that and most of our users are/were Fallout 1&2 fans and they have gone on to other things, real life has taken many of our members from us, we will never forget them.
With Fallout 3 and New Vegas out and our activity still almost flat lining it seems that the sun has set on The Radiated Society. However there are a small handful of us that will continue to meander around the empty halls of our Vault.
With that said if you are interested in joining in on our random off the wall conversations please feel free to sign up on the forum and help us try and keep this place open just a little longer so that T.R.S. doesn't join all those other Fallout Fan Sites of old in Golgotha.
Also, if you somehow managed to miss it, the first Fallout: New Vegas D.L.C. "Dead Money" will be on PC & PS3 on Feb 22nd. So grab a Nuka Cola and a hand full of Rad Away and get ready to venture forth into the Wasteland once again.

Old News I know, however to once more prove that our Vault was not over run and that we have not been wiped out by raiders I though I'd post the link to Game Trailers video on youtube
Also while I'm here as you may or may not already know the official Fallout Online website is up, nothing fancy or very interesting at this point but it's there!
Again a quick nod to NMA, where we steal, er ah, get most of our Fallout News!
Also Don't forge to check out our Fallout: New Vegas Forum, and contribute to our speculation, excitement and fears!

Is it "Fallout: New Vegas", or "Fallout New Vegas"?
Anyway, no we are not dead, yes people (however few) still roam the forums here, and we couldn't even begin to keep up with NMA or the Fallout Wiki on the new news so I'll just point you to them for all your Fallout News.
However with the first teaser trailer for New Vegas up and all the subsequent talk and speculation out there I though we had to at least acknowledge it with a news post. Also this gives me a chance to point out that we have a new Fallout New Vegas forum section so head on in and give us your thoughts on the next Fallout Game.

Spotted at Gamespot.
So as we suspected Interplay was playing with fire after all. This might explain why some of the builds of Fallout being sold by Interplay through Good Old Games, Steam & Gametap contained fan created content.

With the release of 'Mother ship Zeta' it seems that Bethsoft is done releasing D.LC.s for Fallout 3...supposedly.
I've not downloaded a D.L.C. since 'The Pitt' I'm hoping that they will drop the price on Broken Steel soon, I really don't want to pay full price for what amounts to little more than a few hours of side quests, judging by what was in 'Operation Anchorage' and 'The Pitt'. Hopefully 'Point Lookout' & 'Mother ship Zeta' won't be at full price for too long.
Hopefully now they will spend some time working on patches that fix stability issues instead of adding more pointless and self defeating achievements and perks!
Am I asking too much?
We'll have to wait and see.

Could a bit of extra code really be the missing link to a fourth D.L.C. of Fallout 3?
You never know...well yeah I think maybe you do.

~Edit: Its official now DarkUnderlord has posted the Eulogy for F.M.F. and opened the forum so go take a look at what we had been doing for seven years.~
I can say that unofficially this morning April 14th 2009 the Fan Made Fallout Project has been closed.
There has been no official announcement at this point and until it has been officially announced on the F.M.F. site it may not happen, however at this point I don't see this decision being overturned.
If you were wondering...I'm a mapper on F.M.F. and that's how I know, and we were not told to keep this information quite so that is why I say unofficial at this point however this is the second time this year already that we have almost closed the doors and I think they will stay closed this time.
There is no word yet on if or when the forums will be opened to the public, however I do hope so.
Thanks to everyone on and off the F.M.F. Team that has supported the project over the last seven years! I'm sorry that we couldn't see the dream come true but after seven years we got really close for a closed, fan made, not for profit project.
