A huge mod for fan favourite Fallout game- Fallout: New Vegas– has been subject to controversy recently due to highly questionable content that has been found to have been created in the past by one of the developers of the mod.
The official page for The Frontier mod on the Nexus Mods website has a notification declaring that the mod is currently as hidden as well as a statement that was released yesterday. It reads as follows:
Some deeply concerning news has emerged in the past few hours. We have been recently notified that one of our developers, ZuTheSkunk, had posted animated paedophilic content on their personal artist accounts. The items in question are deeply disturbing to the entire team, and we condemn them in the strongest sense. ZuTheSkunk has since been removed from the Development Team and banned off of our Community Discord. We will be conducting dialogue with members of the development team to hear their thoughts regarding the current situation and help make our decision more informed. We have stopped production and work on the mod to address the current events properly. More measures will be undertaken and a more detailed address will be posted soon.
The views, thoughts, and opinions expressed both in the mod, and outside of it, belong solely to the authors who write them, and not to the mod’s organization, community, or other group or individual.
Fallout: New Vegas- The Frontier is a mod that is so large that it is the size of a game in itself, with all new features including gameplay, side quests, characters and voice acting to go along with them. It is a shame that something that must have taken so many people a lot of time and effort to create has been marred by the actions of one individual. At least- as suggested in the statement above- the rest of the developers on The Frontier Team are keeping an open dialogue with the individual in question and looking into the matter thoroughly. Here’s hoping that The Frontier can receive a smooth release despite this set back. For everything that is available within The Frontier mod, check out their official page on Steam which includes a full description.
