A post on moddb.com has shown the remarkable similarities between a recent mod for Fallout: New Vegas and a mission on the new DLC for Fallout 4. The post by BaronVonChateau highlights the resemblance of the Autumn Leaves mod for New Vegas and Brain Dead, a mission in the Far Harbor DLC.
According to the post, both have a “cast of eccentric robots, in charge of a forgotten Vault where a strange murder happened.” The post continues to show a series of images that seem to highlight the similarities between the two. To avoid spoilers I have only used 2 pictures but the full comparison can be found here on the website.
The article makes a valid point about whether modders should get recognition from the industry or even compensation if their content is used for inspiration. It also questions how paid content and free creation can be managed to make it fair for all parties.
What do you think of the comparison? Do you think that it is coincidence or the Bethesda borrowed the idea? Let us know I the comments section below!
