    I wouldn't say you're a bad person. I played the same fallout 3 character for over a hundred hours. I would recommend finishing the game at least once though. New vegas doesn't seem to have the ability to make wandering around doing absolutely nothing as fun as Fallout 3 did.

    I have a question for all those who own the boxed PC ultimate edition: how many discs is it? Is the Steam key included a regular NV one or doesit also unlock the additional content?
    Tidbits of info I need in order to know whether I should wait out for the boxed version to go discounted or just bite the bullet and get a game key :)
    Thanks!

    Downloading New Vegas again. I beat FO3 about three times, but I can never hold an evil character, and never use energy weapons which is what I'm going to try to do this time around.

    Which weather mod do you guys like for New Vegas? I like Project Reality better than Nevada skies because the sky textures look kind of funky and low-res in Nevada skies.

    I need to switch. I have Nevada Skies and it makes my sky go all rainbow-tastic at times. Huge artifact errors.


    I also need to remove a borked install of NMC's texture pack

    Killing Fiends, I can understand sort of. But killing Feral Ghouls to get good karma always confused me. How exactly is that a good deed? By putting the ghoul out of it's misery?
    That's my thought. Sometimes you can hear ferals muttering a few things that a mindless animal wouldn't, which gives the impression that the original person is trapped in there and suffering. Popping them would release them from that suffering.


    Energy weapons are glorious. What do you mean by 'problematic'?
    The ammo IMO. They use SO MUCH of it.

    I use them as currency. I've tried them, they pack a whollop this time, but I just can't come to grips with using six 'rounds' per shot. Much prefer guns, which use one per shot.

    Also, ash/goo piles are hard to find sometimes. And I play a super long range sniper that sometimes shoots people they cannot get to, bits of brain on the ground help looting.

    I think the whole ammunition system for energy weapons was done poorly, and it has nothing to do with how many rounds are used per shot. I think Energy cells/Microfusion cells should be a lot less common. You should be finding one or two in places where you find 10.

    But each Cell should be giving you an entire "clip" of ammunition and when I shoot, it should partially deplete the Cell, not just make one go away. So instead of having 500 energy cells in your inventory and having 500 "shots" available, I should have 10 energy cells and 50 shots per cell. The system was better in Vegas than in 3, but still not right.

    I agree. Who would design a weapon that fires one shot per cell?

    That's like running a laser rifle on AA's, except the AA's get heavier the more charge they have.

    That or you have to reload a battery every time you shoot.

    I would like it if energy weapons was handled like the batteries they are, I guess that's what 1 shot per X rounds was meant to simulate.

    While I agree, rounds-per-shot and rounds displayed on the hud are part of the issues I see.
    I think Energy cells/Microfusion cells should be a lot less common. You should be finding one or two in places where you find 10.
    Especially given how you can craft them. I never wanted for caps in New Vegas, I'd always bump into a stealth boy before I got to freeside. I'd use that to rob Van Graff's blind, and those display models + ammo would net me...oooooh, 100,000 caps on average. Then, right as that starts to deplete, the enemies level into EWs, containers start spawning them, and I'm swimming in caps again. ON TOP OF THAT I can craft common-as-hell and worthless EW ammo into really pricey shit.

    So yeah. I agree. EW ammo should be a lot rarer to find out in the wastes, should be devalued considerably, and to allow EW characters the ability to use their primary weapons, a bit more common. More than one dealer to buy it from.

    But each Cell should be giving you an entire "clip" of ammunition and when I shoot, it should partially deplete the Cell, not just make one go away. So instead of having 500 energy cells in your inventory and having 500 "shots" available, I should have 10 energy cells and 50 shots per cell. The system was better in Vegas than in 3, but still not right.
    It should tell you how many shots are left in that cell. Each trigger press should drop the number by one, and when it hits zero, the cell is depleted. For example, let's say you're using a bog-standard Plasma Rifle. Right now, when you load a fresh MF cell, you are told there's 24 rounds in there. However, each time you pull the trigger, one bolt is launched, and it uses two rounds. Instead, when you load a fresh cell, it should say there's 12 rounds in there, and each time you pull the trigger one bolt is fired and one round is removed. Functionally nothing changes, you still get 12 rounds per magazine as you do now, but you no longer have to remember it uses two per shot and divide whatever's left by that in the heat of the battle. Glance down, that's how many times it will fire before reload. Simple.

    I don't mind one cell only giving a handful of shots before it's spent, that's fine, but I don't want it telling me I have 24 and using 2 each time I pull the trigger. I don't have time to do maths while trying to kill that bulletsponge deathclaw!

    Edited:

    That happens to me about 75% of the time. It's really annoying and I have no idea what mod is causing it. New Vegas doesn't do it though, except for Lily.

    I really hope there is more urban combat and automatic weapons in fallout 4.

    I also hope they replace that godawful "PAF PAF PAF" That every gun makes when being fired by an enemy.

    Is there anyway to get your own music into Fallout 3 or NV, it used to be easy for Oblivion, just copy songs to the music folder/combat/explore etc now it's not that easy... i'd love to walk around the wasteland with The book of Eli soundtrack playing at certain points, yeah I could just play it in media player and play but that's wasting resources.

    That's the exact reason why I loved FO3; you could pick a direction, walk in it for however long and you could find just about anything. NV seemed a lot more organized, not much chance of finding a patrolling Enclave party or a Deathclaw, or even a pack of Mole Rats. Just boring old NCR patrols with the occasional Legion patrol. NV is still much better though.

    For New Vegas there is a radio mod called RACE that has its own folder where you put your music in and supports MP3 and WAV format.

    Piss easy. Rename 20 songs so that they match the filenames of the default tracks, then dump them in Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas\Data\Sound\songs\radionv


    Bam. They'll play. No mod required. Although you can locate mods that increase the track list considerably. They work okay, though I had issues with RNV going entirely silent after a few seconds with the lot of 'em. Wierd bug with my game.

    Well there's 3 tracks I love listening to all the time, they're "The Journey", "Panoramic" and "Safe" but there are probably more that go well with it but i've not listened to many of the others much which I will do now and see what else goes well... I tried it last night with the R.A.C.E mod and the song panoramic started playing while I was walking the wasteland I got an erection.....

    Edited:

    The track "Outland" would probably fit well too.

    So I've started a new character, my goal is to beat the game only using the tire iron, and when I have no tire iron, bare hands, also I'm killing every killable person in the game (except for house because I'm working for him).

    It's going good so far

    NV sorted out the balance problems (mostly), such as VATs invincible mode, and made enemies a lot more canon in terms of their danger. Everything was dangerous if you handled the situation poorly. Just as a Fallout game should be.

    You can go into thirdperson, aim, and then take it back to firstperson to keep the crosshair on while aiming.

    Go back into first person
