I know, I said I wasn't going to bitch about stupid people anymore. It accomplishes little, and just starts drama... but goddamn it, guys...
I'm not sure which group is worse: the players who can't read or navigate a web site; or the Bethsoft employee who's too lazy to add NV links to the GECK wiki.
Today marks almost a dozen players reporting some form of "problem" with NCCS that ended up relating to the NVGECK/Game 1.3 update (or more specifically: not having them) -- just in the last two weeks. We're averaging one every other day now; combined from comment and PM sources.
Herculine and NeilUK02 have valiantly tried to step in and help these people while I've been in dick mode and largely ignoring the Nexii... but the latest few are even ignoring posts with the proper links when they're specifically pointed out.
As such, I've edited the NCCS file description, to add a notice and hotlink right under the NosCo banner; along with a notice not to report problems until both game and GECK have been updated.
Yes, I linked to the EULA page and not the file direct. I'm not up for being sued for trying to subvert their legalese, thanks.
Now look, I'll grant that Bethsoft's Fallout site is not the most intuitive around... but five minutes of clicky clicky on links that look like they might have something to do with the NVGECK will turn up the file. Beyond that, a ten second internet search for "New Vegas GECK 1.3" turns it up. Seriously. The first post in the first result had a link. I also see hits from Nexus news posts, Yahoo answers, the Wolflore forum, Steam's forums... it's not like the file is being secreted away somewhere.
Unlike the toolset for Dragon Age, Bethsoft really isn't screwing us over on GECK availability.
So please, I implore you: for the love of all that's unholy, update your damned games and toolsets before crying foul and reporting "issues" with a mod -- be it mine or someone else's. Us modders aren't psychic. We don't know that you hate the establishment and so never update your games but still expect all mods to work.
Edit: and apparently Bethsoft has now released an NVGECK 1.4, and not bothered to tell anyone or update the main site.
You fuckers at Bethsoft aren't making this easy for anyone, you know that?
