    Hey, I know the PNP stopped, but what happened is this. I had to go on vacation for two weeks, told everyone, when I came back, I couldn't get everyone together, and they were out of it. So guess what, we're back baby! Starting hopefully this saturday if we can get enough people. PM me for details.

    I'll even make a deal, if we get too many people for one session/too many who cant make it (timezone issues, etc) Ill make a sunday session...
    Based off of 'Aloha Smoothskin'
    I might be able to do a good ghoul voice.. I got a deep gravelly voice and if I drink fanta beforehand i get enough phlegm in my throat to do the rest.

    Wait, this is a mod, right? I'm a bit confused.

    If I could put a scope on This Machine, I wouldn't bother with using anything else.
    There's a mod that adds a moddable normal version called a Service Rifle. Does about 20dmg less but you can make that up with psycho if you want, and you can fit a scope.


    I think there's also another mod that lets you scope This Machine itself.


    Personally, I just run a mod that adjust the irons a bit, if I need to snipe something farther out I grab my AMR.

    No, its a PNP - Pen and Paper. Imagine Dungeons and Dragons, but Fallout.

    Edited:

    And if you guys DO do it, record the logs. I'd love to read it. I'd want to be a part of it but it all seems kind of complex for me.

    I really want to play Fallout 3 but I can't get into it. Not because it lacks compared to NV (which it does, but I modded the fuck out of it so it's alright) but it's just so pathetically easy. I never get less than half health, even in massive fights. I've barehandedly killed Deathclaws, I have thousands of bullets of every type, tens of thousands of caps... I just can't get into it when every enemy is comparable to a radroach.

    You can install 20th Century Weapons, activate the ALIVE plugins so the NPCs use the 20th guns, then use vanilla yourself. 20th weapons are about 2-4x more powerful than vanilla, which should make the enemies a bit tougher as long as you're not using them as well.

    Well, you could try Requiem for the Wasteland and use any NV mods that make the game harder. I think most FO3 mods are compatible with NV anyways since the engines are more-less the same; the largest limiting factor is the fact that you don't have the NPCs, map, etc from Fallout 3 which causes mods to be largely nonfunctional, but I can't say anything for sure. For example, I actually directly ported Mothership Zeta to my NV game a while ago while only changing some masters around so it didn't require the Fallout 3 ESM and it functioned with a few bugs here and there (probably due to the fact I used coc to get there instead of going there the legitimate way) until I got to the big lobby room where I couldn't continue because I couldn't get the guys to follow me.

    Assuming he can get it to work. I've tried six times now to get it to work and so far I've only managed to horribly break it. The instructions aren't any help either, following either set ends up with a game that barely starts at all.


    God it would be nice to get it to work though.

    I think most FO3 mods are compatible with NV anyways since the engines are more-less the same; the largest limiting factor is the fact that you don't have the NPCs, map, etc from Fallout 3 which causes mods to be largely nonfunctional, but I can't say anything for sure.
    A lot of the resources were blatantly reused. Crack the GECK open and you'll find references for Vault 112, James, all the assets for most of the weapons are still present and could be easily reassembled, many of the NPC vendor chests still exist, and all the industrial and office assets were flat out reused.

    Bit lazy, but Obsidian was on a schedule, so they had to make do.

    For example, I actually directly ported Mothership Zeta to my NV game a while ago while only changing some masters around so it didn't require the Fallout 3 ESM and it functioned with a few bugs here and there (probably due to the fact I used coc to get there instead of going there the legitimate way)
    That would break the scripting. If you wanted to fix this, find a suitable spot out in Bumfuck, Mojave and set up the same scripts that activated out in the Capitol Wasteland. If you have wild wasteland on your characters you can even use the alien mothership that spawns up in the northwest.


    You will have to have both GECKs open to do this, though.

    until I got to the big lobby room where I couldn't continue because I couldn't get the guys to follow me.
    Another relatively easy fix in theory. The Fallout 3 companions lack the companion wheel NV has, which is going to cause issues and may be why their AI is bugging out.

    To be honest, I was planning on making a mod a long time ago that would add the DLC locations from Fallout 3 into the NV map with some changed details to make it better fit the story (i.e. the armory in Operation Anchorage wouldn't be held by Outcasts, but regular BoS members, changing any dates around, etc), but I knew shit-all about scripting, quest stages, and stuff so I really couldn't do much. Then, Requiem came out so I thought it'd probably be useless then.

    The whole Mothership Zeta thing was just a test to see if it could actually work if I tried.

    Yeah, in 3, I was a tank, a fucking one man army. I did not need help from companions. In New Vegas, I am always out of stimpaks, low on ammo, and low on health. Either its stats, or that NV is definitely harder.

    The Gobi-Campaign rifle may have a flashy paint job, but the hunting rifle is a classic. It's iconic.
    I just find the Gobi-Campaign rifle more unique, while being much more effective. Hunting rifles are classic, yes, but everyone uses them. I like to have some identity.

    I guess I'm just a wasteland hipster, strutting around in my pre-war relaxed wear and wearing my eye glasses.

    You are a lot weaker in New Vegas and you don't get as much stuff when you level up, less health, half as many perks. It's little things but it really adds up.

    No one's PMed yet? Come on, you guys were all drooling over the idea of Aloha Smoothskin, and now no one wants to play the closest thing to it we'll get (because I doubt they could pull off a full game in Hawaii, and we don't have enough modders here to get it done) Just PM me if interested at all, and Ill help you get started, even if you've never played a PNP in your life, Ill hold a practice session just to teach you and anyone else interested.

    If we made a thread for it somewhere and had a few people to start us off, I feel we could make a presentable product. FP's got a lot of diversity, and that diversity would no doubt help in making Aloha Smoothskin.

    If it's any help with making it I just discovered today I can do a really good impersonation of Blind Diode Jefferson from OWB

    Well...what about them? There's no problem uploading and using mods on the workshop that require SKSE at the moment in skyrim, so I assume the same situation would apply here would it not? Or am I completely misunderstanding you?
    Wait SKSE mods work with the workshop? Nevermind then.

    Even if you perk every level like I do it's still considerably harder than three. I think part of 3's problem is sneaking completely clusterfucks the difficulty curve. A silenced 10mm, 100 Sneak, 100 Small Guns, and a Chinese Stealth Suit, and you can beat every quest the game has to offer by level 11 or so without even thinking about using VATS. I've done it before.

    It exists, Exodus. It was made to be a Fallout RPG, but something happened with the licencing and it was released with a cover of something that's totally not a man in power armour, and it totaly doesn't have rules for playing as Super Mutants, just something that looks like them.

    Actually, there's also the unfinished PNP made by J.E. Sawyer in the early 00's. You can find a .pdf of the rulesbook online - and that's what we're playing (or, well, planned on playing)

    I was playing some Fallout 2 (again) recently. I forgot just how much I love this game.
    Except for one damn thing.
    Whenever I encounter a bandit squad armed with automatic shotguns, they rip me to shreds. I feel like Murphy.

    Body Mod? Also some of those are nice looking if they had better textures but a lot of them don't fit Roman anything.

    The Otho and Vexarillius don't really fit. The entire point of Caesar's Legion is what happens when the brutal pragmatism of the Roman Empire is mixed with a world supported by scavenging and looting - so why in the fuck would a people that firmly believe in "Might Makes Right" ever allow their might to be compimised by bare flesh?

    A man covered in plate is a man with the might to move in it - and for that reason I fucking love the Prime armor.

    I failed OWB a lot.

    PAH: I think so.

    On OWB, I found out why Doctor 0 was an asshole, he failed a lot before the war(reference to a certain character, I didn't play NV until now, then realized who he was). I don't know why Dala is so interested in my breathing though. She is a little, creepy. Not Moria creepy.
