Hey, I can't find the answer to this question anywhere in game or on walkthroughs or other sites. When a character goes up a level and you see the flashing yellow light by their icon, how do you then spend your skill points? I've clicked everywhere, both left and right click on the yellow button, the skills, wherever and nothing happens. Any help please? Thanks.

@Creepyguyinblack: you can spend level up points in the data/personal sheet of the mercs, always check all pages or u might miss out on a trait, happend to me and you cant reverse it.


Well i found this game in the rubbish bin of my local gamestore.
I had no Bugs, due to it beeing the "extended edition", eventhough i have not found the extended contet after completion of the game.

To summerize my experience with "The Fall" id say its fun. Decent maps, graphics, models and quests.
The only thing it really lacks is tactical options/behavior.
You cant go prone or move tactically, your best bet (in all fights exept the final one) is to form a group and blast away with auto weapons, kinda dissapointing, but ive seen worse.

In fact it has a ton of nice features like digging for water, cooking meat and if u rest, theres a cool animation for your squad camping, talking and playing cards before they rest.
You can also let some mercs keep watch, to not get ambushed by bandits in your sleep.
Although they ambush you quite often, i found them to be really weak.

If u manage to find it, theres an arena where you can fight and take the gear of your opponent(or he takes yours if u loose). Theres some good armor to get, and some more hidden in various lockers on the map. The arena however is really easy. You have to fight bare handed, but can take drugs before hand and wear full armor^^


A great plus are the different cars you can actually drive around the maps, really funny.
Eventhough you cant drive over people, and everybody has to exit/enter on after the other.
Most of the weapons are also really good, with laserweapons being the top class and ultimatly rare.
If ure a nosy player you can dig up quite bit of equipment, at the end i almost had 6 complete suits of m46 armor(except gloves), but this seems to be a little random, cause if found fever pieces on another playthrough.

Trading system sucked a bit in the end. Halfway through the game i had three cars parked on a map stuffed with items. Only one car was filled with my guns/ammo stash the others held items which i just couldnt trade in cause the vendors just had crap to offer.

So, if u liked fallout/JA2 or similiar tactic rpg

Am trying this now Smile ... seems my english mod works at least Very Happy ... though it seems that not all speech is always translated.

Graphics are not excellent, but not too bad when considering its age.

Since they made it very moddable, I just wish there were some mods available for it.

Haven't played much yet though.

There were some mods. But the guys at Silverstyle decided with all their wisdom to delete the old forum. I had personally written some mods, like one that randomized the duration of drugs. I also made a mod that let you fill gasoline in glassbottles and cut clothing into rags, so you could built a lot more molotov cocktails. Oh, that mod also let you manufacture makeshift hairspray-grenades and some other stuff. Very Happy Another mod I made, respawned various junk items in the trash cans and other containers after a certain amount of time had past, so you had more opportunities to build your own weapons and armor.

But all this is gone now. About a month ago, I could have sent you my mod files, but my Laptop overheated and destroyed a lot of files, including my The Fall installation and I can't find my CDs. The only mod, which I clearly remember how I did it, was an exe hack that let you change the ingame fonts.

Had some time these days and replayed some old saves...
Seen nobody else reporting the encounter from Copper Hill in this wonderful game, so I felt like this was necessary:

Heck, i know so much about this game its almost embarrassing.
Very Happy

Funny, your party is almost the same as mine.
With the exception that i have Ivana(for the interaction with Butch and driving skill) and usually leave Agnes standing around where i have my cars parked.

...So they never released an English Version ? The next best thing is find the MOD that translates the text ?

There is fanmade translation which is quite good actually. Don't remember where I got them, but maybe google will help. Go for the boxed german 'Reloaded' version, which contains all the official patches. Game was still available on some online stores, atleast a year ago when I bought the game..

If some of you are still interested in this game, check out this in-depth let's play on the Something Awful forums.

What the heck is a Pipboy? - Let's play The Fall: Last days of Gaia(SSLP)

Might be interesting, if you didn't want to bother getting a hold of this game.

This game was by far one of the most underdeveloped post-apoc strategy games I've ever played.

I mean, it had it all. Atmosphere? Check. Cool maps? Check. Survival stuff? Check. Full blown editor? Check. Easy code access? Check.

Classic case of a great game being shelved and forgotten. It had the potential to be awesome, but they went under too soon. If they were in US and could use Kickstarter to get funds they would've rocked.
