I always wondered why there was no poker in New Vegas, it's Vegas after all. Anyone capable and willing to take it on and make poker a playable game on the strip? Not a modder myself so I'm not sure how hard this would be - just food for thought really. :)

It's possible, but it wouldn't have the same fancy UI as Caravan or Blackjack.

People have made mods to gamble in Skyrim, so it is not impossible.

no but it is hard, i have been looking at this and the script would have to have x,y,z positions for all the cards ect... this is not the problem.

 

the problem is getting the script to PLAY poker i have no idea where to begin there.

 

and YES you can have the "fancy UI"  like all the other games, you could just reuse the blackjack table with a new texture.

 

for a start take a look at the blackjack script.

The most significant roadblock for this would be scripting an AI that is competent enough to play against. I too would have no idea where to even begin with that.

yeah, with blackjack, the opponent (dealer) has zero free will. so its easy to program an AI to play, it doesn't have to be smart. hit on less than 17, stay and 17 and up. the end.

 

the AIs for poker would be MUCH more difficult. not to mention, there would probably be more than just two people playing at once. so itd be a lot of work for sure. Ive seen the suggestion many times though, and most people write it off pretty quickly as not very practical to mod :/

so as far as I understand the Game engin in skyrim is like an Updated version of the one they use in fallout3/vegas ( more advnace, more optimised) and so on. 

Therefore its harder to do things in NV.

 

 I know modders here on nexus that could make it, but they are working on bigger projects like "PB" and "The frontier".

I have to disagree i dont believe the Creation Kit for skyrim is any more "optimised" then the GECK for new vegas.

 

Skyrims engine is terrible and just as grossly unoptomized as all of Beths games.

 

Skyrims creation kit makes manipulating objects in the render window a little easier, but once you get used to the GECK it is just as easy.

 

I feel that lighting in Fallout 3/NV is superior to skyrim.

 

Yes there are differences between the Oblivion construction set/GECK/NV GECK/Creation kit.

 

But AFAIK there is nothing that can be done in one that cannot be done just as easily in another.

 

I have used them all over the years and currently have Fallout 3,NV,Skyrim and their construction sets all installed.

 

Just my opinions.

 

Feel free to prove me wrong.
