If I could put one thing into FO3 other than greatly expanded quest options and dialog choices, it would be a viable stupid playthrough.

Eh they did have a valid excuse for not putting it in, having to record unique dialog for every NPC you can interact with would be terribly expensive.

They just hire the same fucking five guys for an extra day?

...

Okay first they have to rewrite almost every single line of dialog. This is significant work for the writers and would effectively close to double the time it takes to write any quest. Then they have to record all these new lines, which pretty much doubles the time it takes to record everything. Keep in mind voice actors also entail a writer sitting there coaching the actors, and studio time for the microphones, and audio engineers to clean up the files, and then someone has to get the sound file into the game and clip it to the right length and stuff, and then this all has to go on the disc which perhaps becomes troublesome.

Then they have to have different facial expressions in each conversation because of course when talking to an idiot the NPC will often get angry, so the scripter or coder or animator or whoever does that gets twice as much work for every conversation, and finally they get to write all new lines for the player in every case.

And this is IGNORING the IMMENSE work it takes to make the game function so that a mildy retarded PC could realistically accept and subsequently complete the more complex quests.

It was really more of a cheap shot at the VA than actually being an argument for more dialogue.

Honestly I think the idea of going full VA was a bad one for the series because it forces stuff like this.

The whole point of a retard run is you cant do 90% of the quests

But then you guys would be bitching about how Bethesda is lazy and took out 90% of the quests from the retard run. You guys always find lots of things to bitch about.

noone bitched about that in fo1 and 2.

Becuase for some reason, people were less dickish about the games they played in the mid 90's... Youngsters these days, just a bunch of whiney ingrates. :P

To many games these days are afraid of cutting off certain paths becuase of base character builds. Every one wants to be able to do every quest in every way with every combination. Sometimes, the mayor of a town just doesn't want to put the fate of his people in the hands of a dip-shit.

    I think my question slipped through the cracks:

    What steps can I take to swap an armor's model with something else? I would like to be wearing badass threads until the end of time on my melee character, but DT needs outweigh that desire and im currently stuck with the infinitely silly combat armor mk 2

    Hey hey I agree it can only be filed under 'rad and also awesome' but my desert samurai needs to look the part. My 'ronin' facial hair looks dumb with the helmet and it covers up my cool hair. I am also thinking about replacing my unique axe with a modded sword that has the same stats and a headband with combat helmet, but I'm still looking about on how to do it (I also don't want bumpersword nightkin wielding 70 damage monstrosities)

    mojojoeo wrote: »
    I will continue the uber list on monday. Next section will be gameplay Please if you have any mods you think are essential/worth having PM or post them here!

    PA FO:NV MOD UBER LIST v.BETA

    All completed sections are spoilers to keep size down with new adds unspoiled and limed for ease of reading. All Thriller, no filler. 87% less boobs than trolling the nexus on your own. have a mod worth a damn? Suggest it. Most of this can all be loaded up in the same game unless otherwise stated.
    User Interfaces – pics are spoilered for size
    Darnified UI - The mod was directly cited by the developer as a reason that they did not create a separate UI for the PC (re: the community will handle it). Darn does not post on Fallout nexus so get it from his thread here. He generally will respond to questions bug reports there too - http://forums.bethsoft.com/index.php?/topic/1131897-wipzbeta-darnified-ui-nv/

    Darn does not play too well with others without some work- but it is all encompassing… you won’t need any other UI mod.
    DUIFONV_Skills.jpg DUIFONV_HUD.jpg DUIFONV_SleepWait.jpg

    MT UI - Text is made smaller so that more lines fit in menus and speech boxes. The menus also fill the screen. Available here : http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34902&navtag=file/images.php?id=34902&tab=3
    34902-1-1287703327.jpg

    Pipware - All stsus effects and info are on one pipboy page. Handy for harcore types (DARN UI DOES THIS OUT OF THE BOX). Here : http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34913&navtag=file/images.php?id=34913&tab=3
    34913-1-1287784445.jpg

    Revelation UI – AN odd duck, but quite a look. He took the boxes from fallout tactics and two and merged them into the UI. It is different and very functional (there is more info on the menus than vailla to boot.) Worth a look here :
    http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34971
    34971-1-1287766324.jpg
    34971-4-1287766326.jpg

    MTUI, Pipware, and Revelation can be combined into one super UI that looks fantastic as well. See instructions how on the Revelation UI page above.
    NEW Bullseye - The Crosshair Replacement Pack - Choice is king in this crosshair mod. Many to pick from and works with most things flaswlessly. http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35669
    35669-1-1288239231.jpg 35669-3-1288240431.jpg
    NEW Shiloh DS - Colored Map and Icons - adds a detailed colored map to pipboy with new map markers to boot. Extremely flexable with many options- color or nor, icons or not, REMOVE PIPBOY scanlines and static or not. http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35619
    35619-3-1288221224.jpg

    RADIO
    Active channel extender - Mod adds your own MP3s into the game with basic controls. Step by step instructions and the mod are here - http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34999

    CONELRAD - An ammazing piece of work splicing together actual PSAs with period appropriate music. Even has DJ. Ever want to here Johnny cash, or Tony bennet tell you what to do in the case of a nuclear attack? Here it is- http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35061

    Existence 2-0 -Robot Radio - A chilling awesome radio DJ'd by a sentient robot who rembers when the bombs fell. Labeled as ambient terror. Its a fantastic add. http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35330

    Radio new vegas extender - Another add your own MP3 mod but this one has built in support for the 100 songs added by 'GNR more where that came from' (a spectacular f03 mod) AND step by step instructions on ripping GNRs songlist into NV. Thats like 120 songs plus what new vegas plays normally. A full 6 songs will play between Mr. new vegas with the news. If you want diversity in period specific music this is they way to go. Takes leg work to get running tho. http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35344

    These all play well together! Rock the wastes!

    World Look
    Be for-warned shader mods do not play together unless specified...
    Western Sky Beta – beautiful cloud filled skies and dark dark nights. http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35497
    35497-1-1288142281.jpg

    Fellout – Removes orange tint and adds darker nights. That pip light is now your best pal. Crisper look for the whole world. http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34888&navtag=file/images.php?id=34888&tab=3
    34888-1-1287851862.jpg

    URWL for New Vegas - Realistic Lighting – Similar to fellout, removes some camera filters and features dark nights. http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35570
    35570-3-1288196350.jpg 35570-4-1288196351.jpg

    FNV Enhanced Shaders HD - see vid Does anyone use this one? Share input?

    NEW Section Companions
    Veronica Fix - Veronica doesn't level up with the player like other companions as of right now, this fix fixes that http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35124

    A Cuter Veronica Felicia Day edition – Face gen is of Felicia Day the voice actress for the character. It is not a crass Veronica in a bikini with anime eyes and giant... you get the idea- this seems appropriate: http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35831
    I think he did good here... And the MOD is approved by Day on her twitter... imagine that...
    35831-3-1288349460.jpgfeliciaday.jpg
    Weaker Boone – This make the ‘angel of death’ slightly less so. You may actually have to shoot something with this mod. Its balanced pretty well actually. http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34915

    Unlimited companions mod- Take em all with you since you just can’t decide. http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34870

    Companion sandbox mode – Hey boone wait here. Boone – frozen in time! No more with this mod! If you tell a companion to wait they will interact with the environment, smoke or find a place to sit. It’s a nice RPG ish touch and must have! http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34955 'yes, work those fields Boone'
    34955-4-1287748473.jpeg
    All companions essential- Simple fix to *WUSSIFY* hardcore mode. Companions can no longer die. Don’t worry we won’t judge you for using it….. much. http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34887

    Companion Dress Up – You can now hand companions faction armor to wear and they will wear ANY armor you give them. Dress up time is fun! http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34912

    These all play well together! Go to it!

    Post other mods and Ill get it formated up for the OP to use........ need more suggestions for the list! Next up is gameplay, and will be lengthy help by suggesting dammit.

    In the land of "One Shot, One Kill" do you prefer to have 5 bullets or 1? Further, do you prefer to have the whole camp know what you just did or would you prefer your victims to softly slump to the dirt as you go about your business?

    Please help someone. This is the fourth companion quest that's bugged out on me. None of Veronica's dialogue will trigger, Ranger Andy is apparently broken and won't trigger Raul's quest, and ED-E's wants me to loot a corpse I've already looted.

    I'm playing around with the Laser weapons in the GECK, because they seem almost completely useless at any point of the game. I think it's because their max damage is less than the 9mm pistol you start with.

    The laser rifle can do at most 15 DAM, the 9mm pistol can do 16 DAM

    Shouldn't be: I had power armor training from earlier in the game and the quest completed as normal. PC, console, standalone, service-delivered, vanilla, mods?

    I think my question slipped through the cracks:

    What steps can I take to swap an armor's model with something else? I would like to be wearing badass threads until the end of time on my melee character, but DT needs outweigh that desire and im currently stuck with the infinitely silly combat armor mk 2

    It's super easy, just open up the armor in the GECK and pick a new model.

    Is there a place to get the AM Gun for free? Gun Runners price is a little steep. I can afford it, but free is much better than $texas$

    Just buy it.

    Its worth it.

    So so so worth it

    It also comes fully repaired at 100% cnd, unlike any gun you might find

    How much better is it than the unique sniper rifle?

    Its like comparing a hand grenade to an intercontinental ballistic missile.

    Let me ask you a question.

    In the land of "One Shot, One Kill" do you prefer to have 5 bullets or 1? Further, do you prefer to have the whole camp know what you just did or would you prefer your victims to softly slump to the dirt as you go about your business?

    Due to it's Crit multiplier the regular sniper rifle will outdamage the AM, on an average hit. If your crit chance is at 20% you will crit headshots 100% of the time, 124 damage. The AM does 110 on a normal hit and 190 on a crit and has no crit multiplier. They average out to about the same damage over time.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that with hand load rounds .308 does 50% more damage and .50 only does +15%, putting the regular sniper rifle way in the lead as far as damage goes.

    So, if you're specced for critting and hand loading, the regular sniper is the much better choice. If you don't have hand loader and high crit, AM is the way to go.

    Reposted from last thread:

    So, a brand new bug (Arcade Gannon's quest spoilers):
    When I go to get power armor training from Daisy Whitman the game crashes, every time. Could it be because I already have power armor training (got it from the brotherhood?) Is there a way around this?

    Please help someone. This is the fourth companion quest that's bugged out on me. None of Veronica's dialogue will trigger, Ranger Andy is apparently broken and won't trigger Raul's quest, and ED-E's wants me to loot a corpse I've already looted. This fucking sucks because I wanted that power armor and I can't seem to complete this quest without talking to Daisy Whitman, and the game immediately crashes every time I do.
    Shouldn't be: I had power armor training from earlier in the game and the quest completed as normal. PC, console, standalone, service-delivered, vanilla, mods?

    PC, got it through Steam, I use many mods....I've tried turning them off and a bunch of tricks with the console. Trying to use the console to complete the quest gives me an error too.... I can even make it out of the room before the game crashes, but if I save and reload the game crashes right after I reload.

    I think I'll just have to skip this quest. Son of a bitch. Does anyone know if
    the remnants will show up at Hoover dam if the quest isn't complete?

    The prize is the story that Festus tells you. If you do explore more, you can find a pretty decent named Laser Pistol

    If you're at 20% crit chance and using hand load rounds the regualr sniper rifle is significatly better than the AM.

    The AM is for unskilled thugs.
