About

Hey, I'm DirtyBlue929, aka the Dirty Blue Dog, aka that guy what used to be interested in becoming a mod but has completely lost that spark. I've been using the wiki since before the split with The Vault, but only registered and started editing afterwards.

I have a passion for writing and history, and thus most of my past major edits related to lore and the "background" sections of articles, ranging from minor edits to sentence flow and structure to total rewrites that expand on information, correct it, or just making it more interesting to read. These days I'm honestly totally burnt out from major editing or community engagement here due to the constant interpersonal drama and toxicity, which I honestly don't think any amount of leadership shakeups on-wiki or exoduses to other services is ever going to be able to change long-term, #sorrynotsorry.

Might eventually get around to updating/improving the less-than-stellar Fallout 4 character infobox images like I used to be really passionate about doing, assuming that I don't get immediately reverted and chastised by an admin for really shaky reasons like last time, but don't expect that to involve some major return to the community or anything. I honestly don't want much to do with this place aside from using it as a resource any more.

Modding

I've recently taken up modding for Fallout 4, and potentially other Creation/Gamebryo games in the future. Here's a list of mods I've released on Nexus so far; most of these are just things that I got fed up waiting for someone else to make:

  • Better Weapon Diversity for CHW: Companion piece for Classic Holstered Weapons, reworking vanilla levelled lists so that certain NPCs who logically wouldn't use pipe weapons don't, as well as generally increasing the diversity of weapons for generic town inhabitants in Diamond City and Goodneighbor.
  • Cut Content Restored - Dirty PreWar Clothes: Exactly what it sounds like. I found some unused textures for dirty versions of a few outfits and reimplemented them, with a little distribution to places I thought it appropriate.

Pages I've done a lot of work on (that I can remember)

  • The Pitt (city) - I rewrote a few sections of the background section before the merge and was a little bit disappointed when those changes got overridden by it. Thankfully (?) I subsequently noticed that 70% of said section was plagiarized from the Fallout 3 Game Guide and got the go-ahead to rewrite pretty much the entire thing from the discord server; this is also what finally got us to add a section about what happens in the actual DLC to the page (though I didn't contribute too much to that one; credit goes to Aiden4017 for summarizing all of those quests!) Well looks like literally the entire thing got removed and replaced with a hyper-condensed rewrite in my absence so whatever.
  • Roger Maxson - I expanded on and reworded a lot of the biography section following his appearance in FO76, and divided it into subsections to make it easier to navigate (it's a long section)
  • Tribals - the "Background" section as it exists now (Sept. 2020) was originally a meandering wall of text located above the table of contents; most of what you see there right now was written or re-written by me.

Hall of Departed Images

This is where I'll showcase old versions of logos and such that sadly had to get axed for THE GREATER GOOD (of accuracy).

To-Do

Fallout 3 Game Guide copy-pastes

This stuff is honestly kind of inexcusable IMO. This section contains a list of Fallout 3 articles whose background sections contain passages copy-pasted from the game's Prima guide with little to no alterations or clear attribution. Fallout 3 characters

(LIST INCOMPLETE)

I've noticed a few of these myself, so to add to your list:

I'll try fixing some of these myself, but I thought you'd like to know about them. Aiden4017 (talk) 00:07, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
