This talk page is only for discussing improvements to the page "Fallout: New Vegas miscellaneous items."

Caravan decks and Caravan Cards Edit

How do I add caravan cards to a caravan deck? or are caravan cards useless? Namad 14:27, October 22, 2010 (UTC)

They add automatically

Go to the entry on Caravan (game) for info about that. - TandyBomb "I'm only going to say this once... *Give me the naughty nightwear!" 20:30, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Modified the main miscellaneous table Edit

I redid the main Miscellaneous table to look pretty much exactly like the one on the Fallout 3 page. Took forever, but it's done. Added colums weight, value, weight-to-value ratio (the Excel formula for that was a complicated load of crap), quest item, relevant quests, component type, recipes, RIL ammo, and BaseID. Filled in as much of the data as I could, but someone's gonna need to take care of QI, Quests, and RIL ammo. Next item up for business is a massive list purge; lots of the items need to go, because among other things, a lot of them are carried over from Fallout 3 and don't appear at all in New Vegas. --Yamamoto114 11:50, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

--Removed the majority of items from Fallout 3, however I cannot guarantee that they are all gone as I do not want to remove items without my knowing 100% that they do not appear in Fallout: NV (most notably Slave collar). Also I didn't really mess with any item in red that I was unsure which game it belonged to. Prequent 06:22, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Poisons Edit

I was just reading about Mother Darkness, Bleak venom, Silver Sting and Tremble. They're currently included here in Miscellaneous items, but aren't they actually Weapon Mods? (Temporary ones, but still.)

Cards Bug for PC? Edit

So every time i get a card from a vendor, when i buy it, I crash, Any card, Gomorrah,Lucky 38,Caravan etc. Nosferus 02:11, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Needs Serious Categorization Edit

This article requires serious categorization and organization.

For one, the quest items need to be separated from the misc loot. And we need a section for the cut misc items and the DLC misc items.

Considering that this article has sat in this state for quite a while, no one seems willing to do it.

I'm requesting permission to categorize and organize this article. I'm asking because I don't want to do it without permission only for my work to be undone. So... permission?

If you haven't realized, this is a wiki. You don't need permission to do anything; you can do whatever you please to a page. If you do something wrong, it will be fixed by another editor. So the moral of the story here is: do it right the first time around, and there will be no need to fix it. Go ahead and rearrange stuff. I'll help if I can.

I know. I just didn't want to interfere with any plans for this article.
Unfortunately, it seems my computer's processing power isn't good enough to handle the editing of an article of this size. I got it started, but it takes several minutes of frozen screen just to scroll through the editing window's display one notch.
If anyone else is willing to handle this, preferably someone with a better computer, I'd be very grateful. I already got it started, so just follow the template in place. You can use the PC version of the game and FNVEdit or GECK to check if an item is set as a Quest Item or not. I only marked the ones I handled that are for yes, since I intended to mark the ones that aren't on a later runthrough.
Sorry about this! I'll see if I can fix this piece of junk computer up a bit...

More than likely, it's not your computer that's on the fritz, it's your internet speed, but either way, you're still incapacitated. So I'll get to work. Best regards, Kastera 01:20, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

Brotherhood of Steel Holotag Edit

Playing Xbox 360, patch 1.02: 4 Brotherhood of Steel Holotags are obtainable by killing the Brotherhood Paladins in the quest, I Could Make You Care. They should be removed from the Cut Items table. Rook The Knight 06:12, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Check Versus X - and What We Really Need to Know Edit

What is the difference between a green checkmark and a red X on the page? It would be helpful if the page clarified the difference. I assume the green checkmark corresponds to the page comment about QI items that cannot be dropped or sold.

It would be VERY helpful if the charts and pages included whether or not non-unique or consumable items are Quest-related or not. For example, Doctor's Bag, Med-X, Bonesaws, Surgical Tubing, Super Stimpak - just to name a few - are indeed needed to complete certain quest-lines or meet NPC desires.

Readers need to know whether a certain number of found items need to be kept in storage for future, yet unrealized, quests. For example, if one were to use the charts as is, they could assume that they do not bonesaws, and therefore, never bothered to keep any that they found. Later, they would trigger the Restoring Hope questline and might have a difficult time finding a needed bonesaw, because they never bothered to save any that they picked up. Granted, that isn't the best example, because it is likely that they could find one in Dr. Richard's medical tent, or other medic locations. Still, I think the point is valid.

I have the Official Game Guide but it lacks a detailed index (all in one place) where one can look up any of the items and see a list of pages that indicate all its potential uses (if any). Hence, there is a great deal of hunting-and-pecking to find out whether an item is worth saving or not. Because of that shortcoming, players go online to find alternative sorces of information. That is my main reason for searchng the Wikia pages. Many of the pages have that information, but many do not. So, things are better, but there are still many items left to chance.

Cleanup Edit

Anything that has own overview pages doesn't really need to be listed here in my opinion - this is not an "all items" page, but a page for items which do not fit into any other item category.

In particular, holodisks, notes and snow globes don't need to be here (but currently are). I'd also suggest moving the Caravan cards (and the NPC decks) to an own overview page. Thoughts? -- Porter21 (talk) 20:19, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

There are also a few repeated Items in both the quest and non-quest section. Why are there quest Items in the non quest section anyway? Zefiewings 16:51, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Bottle cap- Edit

Why is it a cut item? Is it a special cap that was cut, if so it should say. And the link just leads to the cap that is defiantly in the game.Zefiewings 21:34, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Adding weapon modsEdit

A Miscelanous item page without the weapon mods is... "ridiculous" is the word I am intending, yes. What's the point of cutting 50 weapon mods from this miscelanous section, might I ask? Are they not flag misc? Are they not sorted in that page in game? Are they of little-used category?Laclongquan (talk) 13:17, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

Blank Edit
