Watermark Edit

Do the maps need "Mothership Zeta" watermark? If so, where can i find a file with? (English isn't my mother tongue, don't bite) Rothessy 10:31, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Demolition Expert PictureEdit

Hello, Fallout 3 Demolition Expert Picture is missing. (I see, you added all other perks pictures).

need help please Edit

me and my freind was looking for uniqe armor to get on fallout 3 and we found the outcast recon armor but we also looked and it said it was "Outcast variant of the armor, available only through console" and were woundering wat does that mean and if you can give us a helping hand for that if you can it will be very helpful.

Well, if you're playing on the console, you can forget getting that armor because console commands (PC only) are codes that PC users can use to debug the game in case the game gets stuck or just to plain cheat.--Master of cheeZ 05:13, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Where abouts in Mothership Zeta did you find General Chase's Overcoat? Thank you. user: Locklear 86, 19:37, 3rd August, 2009 (UTC)

Adminship requirements Edit

Sounds reasonable. Ausir(talk) 23:51, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Maybe the requirement should be about main/template/category namespace edits, too? We don't really want someone with 500 forum posts and comments to think they qualify. Ausir(talk) 00:23, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Right, I missed the word "article" in your message. Ausir(talk) 00:29, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Zip GunEdit

Why did you remove the Template Fallout 2 weapons in the page of Zip Gun ? There is a category Cut Content where there is the Zip Gun. Image of Zip Gun that you put is not used in Fallout 2. If you acquire through a inventory editor, it will not have this image but the image with a square pink. Itachou 15:25, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

T-51b Edit

Is T-51b the best armor in fallout 3 or is Hellfire armor better?--LoneMerc101 21:04, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

"w00t first comment" Edit

I suggest a policy to delete such idiocy, it serves no purpose outside stupid spamming. 15px-Scribe.jpg Tagaziel (call!) 09:31, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Helmet? Edit

Is it just the helmet which has a -ch effect for the Hellfire? Because I might sell the T-51b but it'll be hard to find a merchant who has 999 caps. :)--LoneMerc101 11:30, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Not if you've invested in the caravansWastelandAtheist 08:39, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

subjectivity Edit

Don't simply edit out the entire block.

Change what you must but it's not like the fact that there is no Karma gain isn't true...

Picture. Edit

[[File:Overlapping.jpg|frame|Overlapping issue]] This is a screenshot of the recent news overlapping the main article.

Thanks Edit

I know it's not a major problem but thanks anyway for your help.--LoneMerc101 12:13, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


why does every body get that bullshit hello thingy message except me? and wTF is a template (just explain it dont say a link cuz i dont get it.......)Halfgod 19:03, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Multiple images in short articlesEdit

Hi Porter21, still sorry for this little problem I had forgotten to put a gallery, thank you for having solved this inconvenience, see you =) Itachou 21:37, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Canada Article Edit

Cananda has been Vandalised by Warriorsfelchii --LoneMerc101 21:30, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Guides? Edit

Is there any places we can make small miniature guides? Or is it not allowed? I have some helpful tips for the sniper rifle because there is an art to killing enemies with it without using tons of ammo?--FLaSHBaCK HaSH 00:09, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd keep these to the forums and blogs. Ausir(talk) 17:07, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I got the guide finished and i gots to say it is some damn fine work, but its lengthy and I'm not sure if its short enough for a forum post, it's 5 pages on MS Word. Still spell checking and i need to get it with links. If it wasn't subjective I'd add it to the Sniper Rifle page. Could it be possible to add a link on the page that goes to the guide on the forum. I could add an intro clause that states the benefits and dangers of using a guide maybe?--FLaSHBaCK HaSH 03:02, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Personally I'd use a blog for your guide. This way nobody else can edit it and it can be more easily categorized (if more users take to writing guides), making it easier to find. -- Porter21 (talk) 05:53, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Canonboxes Edit

Well, there are different levels of canonicity, with some sources being more canon than others - e.g. Fallout Tactics is officially semi-canon, and the devs have taken some ideas from the canceled projects as well. We might also see the line between canon and non-canon blur with Fallout: New Vegas, which is likely to use some Van Buren lore. So I'd have at least one additional sentence in each such box. I was also thinking of having different canon boxes for e.g. information that contradicts canon sources, non-contradictory information from non-canon sources that might end up incorporated into the official canon, and material referenced in canon sources, but with the canonicity of details being uncertain. Maybe also add a "non-canon information ends here" box.

I edited your sandbox with 2 examples. Ausir(talk) 17:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks good! Ausir(talk) 19:40, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
semi for Tactics (just added), unconfirmed for VB and FO3CC, default for the rest. Maybe make it so that each of them can be changed to "contradict" or "unconfirmed" using a parameter, on a case-to-case basis? Ausir(talk) 12:16, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Right, I guess "unconfirmed" should probably be the default. Ausir(talk) 12:32, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

By the way, I think we should retire Template:JESimple and Template:VB-SPECIAL. If they contain only stats, and no lore, we don't really need sourceboxes for them. I already retired Template:FO2 and Template:Warfare, since both were used only in single articles, and Warfare was just part of the Tactics release and shares all of its lore with FOT itself - the Tactics sourcebox is enough here. Ausir(talk) 11:22, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Maybe we should just merge Matthias Presper into Victor Presper under an "early design" header. Ausir(talk) 12:36, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
And yes, I'd get rid of the VB-SPECIAL and Simple templates. Just like there's no need to have Template:FOT on Tactics perk pages. Ausir(talk) 12:38, 30 July 2009 (UTC)


There is a blog (I think it's one of the mothership zeta) that has descended into a worthless flame-war against my brother,so i think it'd be a good idea to burn all comments containing flame-stuff (Like "Chaoswolf licks big-dick")Y'know,in the interest of keeping the flame-wars off the blogs. Mr.Wolf 17:11, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I've been deleting such comments and banning the commenters, although I haven't had time to do it with the most recent ones. Ausir(talk) 17:12, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Given the fact that there are 150 flame comments up there its not a suprise. Burgerman 17:24, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, while the personal attacks are not acceptable, your brother is not completely innocent either. If you're being aggressive it's not surprising if people respond in kind to be honest. -- Porter21 (talk) 19:18, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I've deleted some personal attacks both against your brother and by him. Ausir(talk) 19:39, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Excellent,even if that blog still has more flames in it than a pissed off volcano,or a maccy man forum post. Mr.Wolf 14:32, 29 July 2009 (UTC)


Stupid me created the Refrigerator page because I misspelled it as Refridgerator! Spence 06:37, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

BTW, how do I do redirects? Spence 07:15, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Help with wiki formatting Edit


I talked with Ausir about the portuguese wiki asking some questions about how to do some stuff on wiki, he asked me to speak with you about it.

I intend to start working on the The Vault portuguese wiki, I'm going to translate everything I can and I wanted to follow the format on The Vault english page since it has a very good organization and stuff.

But I can't apply the layout that the english wiki has on the portuguese wiki, like, when I try to copy the contents table from the english wiki to the portuguese, is displays a blank table, without the title and border.

Could you help me with it please?

Thank you—Preceding unsigned comment added by Walhart (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Blog categories Edit

Looks like currently categories can only be added to blog posts through the category select tool and can't be added manually. I reported it to Wikia staff so hopefully it will get fixed soon. Ausir(talk) 13:53, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I also have the damn thing off normally. Ausir(talk) 14:20, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

That First Sentence...Edit

Where you say ___ appears in Fallout 3. Do you make it bold, the brackets, or both? Spence 14:31, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Sister wikis box Edit

How about replacing the default WIkia Gaming footer on the main page/portals with a "sister wikis" box? Ausir(talk) 16:48, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but I was thinking of maybe making it look more like the rest of the main page/portal sections, and also adding logos for sister wikis and flags for other languages. Ausir(talk) 17:41, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

The codes are not ISO-3166 codes for countries, they're ISO 639-1 codes for languages :). Ausir(talk) 10:11, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Anyway, it's looking good. Please also add Chinese and Japanese. Ausir(talk) 11:12, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Mboxes Edit

Well, the bottom of the page is where stub message is traditionally put. Also, I don't think it should be on top, because it's not really as big of a priority, unlike some messages that say that something is wrong with the article, it just says that it could use some expanding. By the way, I like the smaller mboxes, but I preferred when they were aligned to the left personally. Ausir(talk) 17:05, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Race categories Edit

I was thinking that maybe we should rename the race categories to e.g. "Human characters" and "Super mutant characters". Then "Super mutants" and "Ghouls" would have articles about different types of super mutants and ghouls, while the characters would be in the character subcategories. Ausir(talk) 18:10, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't think we need categories like "Mister Gutsies" etc. - for robot models where the only articles other than the main one will be individuals the previous version ("Mister Gutsy units" under the robot category) was IMHO better. Same for characters like unique molerats or spore plants - there needs to be just one category there (e.g. "Molereat characters") under "Creatures". There's not much of a point in having a category in which the only thing is a subcategory. Ausir(talk) 12:11, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, sounds good. And I'd screw the technicalities and categorize Seymour under animal characters too. Ausir(talk) 12:20, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Mariposa/V87 super mutants Edit

I think the portals should still link to the main super mutant article, given that it's where the general info about super mutant biology etc. can be found. Ausir(talk) 20:26, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I think that at least in this case the overview article is a better starting point, unless we copy over the biology sections etc. Ausir(talk) 20:56, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I still think that in FO1/2/T portals, the main "super mutant" article fits better. I'll change it back. Ausir(talk) 10:13, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
The main super mutant article has just a summary of the Mariposa mutant history - the history in the main article was shortened, while the specific one has the full version. So definitely not all info in the specific article is also in the general one. I also intend to add FO1/2/T in-game stats later on, and these will go into the Mariposa mutant one. Ausir(talk) 11:00, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd make them subcategories of "human characters", but also include in the "characters by race" directly, since that's where people would expect them to be. As for the Van Buren trogs, there are more of them in the design docs, although I suppose Billy-Bob can just go under humans for now. Ausir(talk) 12:56, 31 July 2009 (UTC)


I noticed someone changed alot of articles "perk damage" and it just showed "Damage with Pyromaniac marked in red. ". Was this part of the new template? It was an anoym user so I figured what the hell is happening. So I reverted them. Apparently I wasn't aware of the new template--Kingclyde 06:46, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Making a CategoryEdit

I'm working on the inFAMOUS wiki doing the side quests and I realized that there is no category for side missions. How/ can I make a category? (>^_^)> He Wants a Hug! 10:26, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. I would have asked someone on the actual wiki, but no one is ever on the darned thing to ask! (>^_^)> He Wants a Hug! 10:36, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Request. Edit

Can you lock my user page from editing? The Second Wolf Brother. 14:36, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

arararar Edit

thanks for the {{perkdamage}} expansion and documentation -- 21:42, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

No problem :) -- Porter21 (talk) 21:52, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Alien RifleEdit

After watching the trailer, I believe my point has been proven. There is a black RIFLE, alongside the disintegrator. Should the page be remade? //--TehK 22:54, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh and, I think you should block Crisscross, he keeps moving Katana to Samurai Sword, and undoing any edits I do to that page. //--TehK 00:16, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

im the one that made the page why dose it matter if its samurai sword or katana this is my first page just let me be and edit any new info you find but dont just trash everything i post

It doesn't matter if it is "your page". You are not the owner! This is a public INFORMATIONAL wiki. //--TehK 00:19, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Porter, I think you should lock the page so that moving is Sysop only, editing could stay normal however. //--TehK 00:24, 1 August 2009 (UTC)


Oh, can non-admins move over redirect? If I knew that I'd have done it myself! :D //--TehK 00:33, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh I see, lol it would be so much easier to move without a redirect and such. //--TehK 00:49, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

regarding the Katana Edit

it appears teh krush has vandalised the page on the katana but im not experienced enough ti deal with the problem myself so thought i wud bring it up with you porter --Greeny1911 00:44, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

i was doing the vandalism. <_< //--TehK 00:44, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

i was the one who made the damn page

There is no page ownership here. //--TehK 00:51, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

im just saying you cant vandalise something you make and dont be a hepercrit you 2 act as if you own the page all i wanted to do was make 1 damn page and thats vandalism

We aren't hypocrites, we edit the page because we are active contributers. And technically, Porter does own the page, being an admin and all. And yes, you can vandalize a page you made, by replacing it with "FUCK YOU" when you get angry. //--TehK 00:55, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

your the one that did that when you got angry Crisscross1993

You're the one that got angry, stop trying to turn this on me. Porter, can you check his IP and compare it to the one that vandalized the page? //--TehK 01:04, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

thx Edit

dont know if u are an admin or something but mighty fine job mate.

just as i was about to change the phil part of khans after creating another phil page like 2 minutes ago. i saw you went and changed it for the newbie contributor.

i had to say that you do a good job. =) Lachanadan 01:06, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

regarding my MSZ Talk article Edit

sorry that the article keeps trying to add a million times i know it needs a forum now but when i added it i hit the save changes button like a million times Sorry im just i n00bBoS979 15:16, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Template HelpEdit

I have some problems about templates at the new Turkish Vault and Ausir said you can help me with copying "basic templates" with you bot(?), can you help me? Ogly 19:57, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright Edit

Sure, why not. Ausir(talk) 20:58, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

MZ article creation Edit

Great idea! Would it be possible to link to it from Special:CreatePage somewhere? Ausir(talk)

Maybe put an "Add a Mothership Zeta article" link in the sidebar for now? Ausir(talk) 21:19, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Wasteland wiki lets you select article type and fill out the infobox: w:c:wasteland:Special:Createpage - does this require a new extension to be installed or can it be done with some MediaWiki templates already? Ausir(talk) 22:31, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Should I request it? Ausir(talk) 22:57, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
I requested it through Special:Contact. Ausir(talk) 23:18, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Looks like it works pretty well thanks to the sitenotice link. Maybe we should make pages like this for all Fallout games, and add them to the sidebar? Ausir(talk) 20:18, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, too bad we didn't think of it during previous add-on releases. :) Oh well, we'll be ready for New Vegas, and it will come in handy when adding missing FO1 and 2 articles. Ausir(talk) 22:37, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Base ID for TorcherEdit

I tried to spawn more Torchers. I wrote "player.placeatme ca761" but it didn't work. Is ca761 right Base ID for Torcher? --Ogly 22:31, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

why Edit

why did you edit the shotgun page the shotsguns fire 9 pellets each can do a critical thats why i put 27x9 or 40x9

Because it's the damage multiplied by the critical multiplier...ffs. [Composite 4] (My Talk)

well its not allways easy to remember to do the Crisscross1993 07:28, 3 August 2009 (UTC) thing i have used this wiki since fallout 3 came out but i only made my acount a few days ago i dont know exacty how it works Crisscross1993 07:28, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

wait so the game isent out today i thought it was everyone has been saying its out later today Crisscross1993 07:31, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

MZ release Edit

I wish they'd just release it and get it over with. --Sentinel 101 08:10, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm lookin' forward to that already ... :) --Sentinel 101 08:28, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

some guy said on the discussion page for mothership zeta its for sale now maybe you should edit it saying its for sale Crisscross1993 10:26, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Porter since we know Paulson is the cowboy should we change the name of the revolver to reflect that it belongs to him Five Star Genral Of The Dead BigDog 11:40, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Fallout game add-on pack 2 Edit

Hello,is there a release date yet?--SixDog (Talk) 10:54, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Question about Fallout 1 and 2Edit

Umm do you know how i could make a screenshot so i could contribute to some missing info boxes or so? Thanks Onipix 11:29, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Also another question, I have already finished the skills and special boxes for F02 and F01. Please look into it and take that off the "helping out" area. Thanks Onipix 11:31, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

what country are you from Edit

or where is your version of fallout 3 from as you keep saying you need someone to tranlate the items names

Request.....Again. Edit

Can you help out please?I tried to make a navbox group template to support a mothership-zeta style template,but it says i have a template loop thingy,can you help?Please? The Second Wolf Brother. 15:36, 3 August 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for changing the special thingy or whatever. Also I didn't know that you could change it so whatever anyways. Onipix 15:57, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Alien Worker Edit

Probably depends on the interpretation. Same with e.g. Super mutant master. Ausir(talk) 22:35, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd make a separate page, but whether it'd be a creature or character one, that's your choice, I guess. :) Ausir(talk) 22:46, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Crisscross1993 Edit

Porter i am letting you know that he has vandalized Teh Krush user pae twice i have put it back to it's original form but i think you might want to consider banning him for a week if he keep up this vandalism Five Star Genral Of The Dead BigDog 00:48, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

What he said ^ //--TehK (tok) 01:36, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

thats what she said Crisscross1993 01:37, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Perk damage Edit

Do perks like Pyromaniac and Xenotech Expert also increase the critical damage? Asking caus' I'm going to add the adjusted damage for all Alien weapons with Xenotech Expert, like we did for Flame weapons with Pyromaniac. First I thought all damage stats were increased, but then I noticed that the Flamer's page shows no increase in critical damage with the perk, so now I'm not sure what to believe. -- Sentinel 101 16:10, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I suppose critical damage IS increased and the missing stat on the Flamer's page is just an oversight, as all other weapons affected by Pyromaniac do have increased critical damage. -- Sentinel 101 16:32, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
How about AOE? Is AOE increased by Xenotech Expert? -- Sentinel 101 17:16, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta Item Name Confirmations Edit

I've added some of the item names you requested on this page. -- 16:36, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Bullshit technicalities Edit

Please don't go around harassing people or you will be banned.--Kingclyde 19:12, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Kind of ironic, actually it's people like him who can't settle disagreements in a civil manner which make people doubt that wikipedia can work :) -- Porter21 (talk) 19:15, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Alrighty, fine, I apologize. 4RM0 19:18, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


I wanted to get your opinion on this. I am finding people posting 30-40 minutes worth of videos on how to do a quest vs. actually writing an article and giving all of the options. In my opinion, videos should be used to describe how to obtain certain items. If the person creates a quest video(s), it will never show every different option that is available. It that was done there would be about an hour or more of videos per quest. It seems to me that creating a series of videos 1)limits the options that the person who watches it will use and 2)show the sign of a lazy editor. What do you think. I've been moving the hour of videos to the discussion page for two of the zeta quests.--Kingclyde 16:55, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

explain to meEdit

okay i apologised i did everything i could

and still you didnt unblock me

i mean

that is just cuz ur pisst

but it doesnt help the vault

cuz i needed to do some editing

and you didnt even answer

i mean isnt that egocentric?

to block somebody becuz he did something to you

and not to the vault himself

and if he apologised

you ignored him?

i mean

thats just misuse of youre powers

i know that you are not with me on this subject

but i would like an answer on this. Halfgod 17:13, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

jeez i didnt know you would be angry

and no im not going to ausir cuz i think that would be childish

we are going to settle this as two adults not as two childs

Halfgod 17:59, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

First off,stop typing like a poet,second,you aren't and adult,you already stated you were 15,thast makes you the teenager and porter the adult Join Me! 18:03, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

ooh dont do like youre above me (to porter)

because have you not done what i have done

i mean i was in a childish mood

so because of that you would punish me

and what you said

'even if i saw it i wouldnt unblock you'

thats just for youre own cause and not for the vault's one

if you would just say to me that you did it for you (because i was irratating you)

i will leave the subject to be

but if you dont than you would just prove that you are just a guy that mis uses his powers as he sees fit.

Halfgod 18:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

You were in a chilidsh mood to get porter to punish you?Thats called trolling. Join Me! 18:17, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

lol no i mean that i was in a childish mood and because of that he punished me

and im typing like im always do so i will see that as an compliment and last just because im 15 doesnt mean im not grown up im very intellectual and im treated like an adult so maybe thats why i act like one.

Then act your age.If your in a childish mood,STFO (Stay the fuck off) the wikia untill you calm down. Join Me! 18:31, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

well porter thank you for the information but that doesnt answer my question:

you did this because i was annoying you and even if i could contribute to the vault you wouldnt unblock me just because you wanted to punish me and even if i said i wouldnt do it again and apologised you just wanted me to suffer or something even if the rules justified it you could think by yourself:

i will unblock him cuz he has shown regret

i agree with you on that point but who says im demanding anything i just want you to explain to me why you didnt.

Repair Grenades? Edit

Okay, I've been adding proper repair sections to the weapon infoboxes, but I've noticed that all of the explosives have repair spaces too. I was under the impression that all explosives are at 100% condition. Anyway, since most players won't repair any grenades, how can we hide those? Nitty 18:02, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Excellent! Thank you. Nitty 18:12, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Local map problems Edit

Take a look here. The space walk area doesn't allow you to access the pip-boy. Spoon 18:19, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

MDPL mass relay station Edit

i have a question about this place: will your stuff disappear in the dressers/ footlockers? cuz my game wont let me into my tenpenny suite anymore --Masqueradebunny14 05:55, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

OK Edit

Re: Mother-ship zeta

Well Sir your opinion on my screen shot are highly valid, note to yourself I created a new account and have submitted much information before which was once rejected b4 (for reasons of pot smoking teens or inadequate adults such as yourself!, who I figure manage this site) this led to the use of a new account. Now I will continue to mention NO IMAGES AT ALL OF THE "CPTSDRM" are featured! I hear your statement but to call me childish for such strict contribution measures is unjust.

I only write this cause you're fucking morons! see anybody else contributing screens the day the DLC came out?

Your right about the weapon aspect, but calling me childish for trying to expand your site means you yourself ya YOU DICK! this has been copied in a National forum, like that means anything. still in place, choose your words wisely for those who help for free...

MZ Weapon Vandal?Edit

As I do not have Mothership Zeta, I cannot confirm this, but someone created a page Shock cannon sx-2000. I never have heard of this and am not sure if this is even real or not. Is it? SuSpence95 (Talk) 09:45, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

I broke something Edit

I am a technical dilletante, I tried importing your templates to the C&C Wiki (namely and aesthetically, even after adjusting nb main, it still doesn't work.

Help plz :( 15px-Scribe.jpg Tagaziel (call!) 14:01, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd be very grateful for your assistance, great Porter. :) 15px-Scribe.jpg Tagaziel (call!) 14:41, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

MZ retail Edit

Although that's what it says on the article page, I put the link there so people could see what store it was. I was in there yesterday and saw the disc, in a box, for ten dollars. Yes, I was confused, but it was there, all wrapped up nice and pretty. Hwrtwh 16:08, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm going to post something right not about it, because i plan on going back tomorrow to purchase it. Hwrtwh 16:10, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Confederate hat cleanup Edit

Could you clear up the first sentance on the notes section as it says quote: 'The Confederate Hat is one of the few hats to degrade, it degrades very quickly'Its pretty confusing and i don't know which one is true. Thanks --KieranBOS 17:10, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Race Edit

Is ethnicity in the game denoted by some field in the GECK? Otherwise, it's pure speculation. What's Jingwei, for example? Is he Asian? Is he Chinese? Is he "Korean-Chinese"? Is there any way to actually know?

I guess if I'm strongly outnumbered on this one, you can undo the edits I've done so far, but it seems a little unnecessary to have it at all when there's no effect on gameplay or lore, no way of giving an definitive answer on the majority of cases, and the entries for the previous Fallout games don't have it either.--Baalzak 18:51, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

That's all I needed to hear. Thanks. I've undone the posts you didn't already get to, and I will leave further editing of that field up to the PC users. My apologies, and thanks for the heads-up. --Baalzak 18:59, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Somah Edit

Since I'd like to contribute to this blog in a positive manner, I'm just curious why the image I uploaded of Somah with 100 repair skill was deleted? Was it against policy in some way? Chianti 23:39, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

The quality of the picture... yeah, I'm sorry about that :) I took it with my iPhone (as evidenced in the meta-data) and posted it only because there were a large group of people who didn't believe she could have +100 in the first place. I intended to prove otherwise, which is why I left it in the "bugs" section! Chianti 10:03, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Recent News & tipsEdit

I recently adopted the inFAMOUS wiki. Since I'm now bureaucrat I'd like to do a recent news thing on the main page like on here so I don't have to leave everyone a message saying new blog or something.

What I'm trying to do is get this wiki together as it is very sloppy and poorly written. There are only about four people who contribute, including myself. My goal is to get this place more traffic and I need to pull everyone together so we can work to make it a great wiki. Any good tips? I thought you might be able to help me with the recent news thing. Thanks! 06:05, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh sorry its me. SuSpence95 (Talk) 06:06, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey how exactly do you wikify the dialogue files. I want to wikify it, but i am really confused on how to Onipix 19:01, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Use the <nowiki></nowiki> mark-up code. Mr.75 19:08, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
Wikifying means adding links to related articles - that's what it means in the context of dialogue files at least. For "normal" articles it also means checking whether the article is categorized and formatting it (that has already been done for the dialogue files though). Onipix, I replied on your talk page. -- Porter21 (talk) 19:12, 8 August 2009 (UTC)


I believe XXTAPOUT95Xx should be given a ban, read his contributions. //--TehK (tok) 05:42, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta for sale on disc Edit

I think you erased a bit i posted on the main page about finding Mothership Zeta on sale in disc form for the XBOX360 for $9.99 at E.B. (Electronic Boutique at Great Northern Mall in North Olmsted Ohio) I left it in quote form so that one of you site manager guys could fix the false statement of "it's not for sale in any disc form", because that statement is false. --UltraMegaUltraMan 07:55, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Dialogue files Edit

I still think it's best to go through them manually anyway, given that many of them have encoding issues, and when wikifying a dialogue file I also each time look for any information in it that is not included in the appropriate articles yet. Wikifying some keywords by a bot is a good idea, but I still wouldn't remove the wikify tag then. Ausir(talk) 17:10, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Can't we just move them to a "Dialogue files for wikification" subcategory? Ausir(talk) 17:57, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. Ausir(talk) 18:06, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Editing Edit

I've been doing a lot of editing as I proceed through a new game in fallout 3. I was just checking to see if my edits are creditable. I've been spellchecking pages and fixing any grammatical and format issues that I find. If there's any projects that need to be completed I'll try to assist where I can.--FLaSHBaCK HaSH 17:18, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Icons Vault Boy Fallout 3 Edit

Hi Porter21 =). So, I wonder how you are doing to make a black aura around the Vault Boy of Fallout 3 for example Power_Armor_Training.png

To come out better, without it not editable. Itachou 18:25, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Ho yes, it would be really nice, if you don't take too long for you =) Itachou 19:13, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Really thank you for all these precision my dear friend =). Through its, I can more to make better pictures of the Vault Boy of Fallout 1, who they are brown. Good evening to you and thank you for take the time to help me ^^ Itachou 21:07, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Policies, guidelines and projects Edit

Sounds good. I've wanted to do it for a while as well. Maybe we should set up a forum page or pages for discussing the proposed policies? Ausir(talk) 19:35, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Or we can start with the basic proposals now at e.g. Forum:Policy proposals (with a section for each proposal), and add new ones as we go along? Ausir(talk) 22:03, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Sounds good. Maybe then post a newspost like "The Vault news tidbits" like these proposals and the new article creation pages? Ausir(talk) 22:25, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I think putting it in a newspost and in the sitenotice could help. Ausir(talk) 22:45, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Sounds good. I'd move the policy proposals to the forum already too. Ausir(talk) 19:17, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Loving LifeEdit

I was roaming the very Western border of the F3 map and noticed a dead wastelander. I approached her and saw she had a note on her called Loving Life or something. I've never heard of this encounter. SuSpence95 (Talk) 20:10, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm so glad I did this.

I've been telling Joshua for years that if you really want to live, you've got get out there and LIVE! Wander, explore, interact with this crazy Capital Wasteland.

I've met so many great people, done so many amazing things. I can't wait to get home and tell Joshua all about it. I may even combine my journals into a book! SuSpence95 (Talk) 20:16, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, I can't remember for sure as I just started a new game recently. It was on the very edge of the map kind of behind the Yao guai tunnels. SuSpence95 (Talk) 22:32, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I've been going up the edge of the map from the tunnels and I believe I've found the exact location. It's on the 1 column and on the bottom half of the 6th square down on the western edge. Almost directly west of Shalebridge. The body should be next to a large boulder, on a worn path which splits and then meets up again passed the boulder. (Maybe you can word it better for the article?) :) SuSpence95 (Talk) 23:33, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta loot Edit

A lot of the mothership zeta articles refer to general loot so I was thinking about making a page with the generic loot of Mothership zeta so that it can unify some of the articles. If you think its an ok idea just let me know, because I wasn't sure if it was allowed since it doesnt really have an ingame relation.--FLaSHBaCK HaSH 20:19, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I mean like generally loot is a food item, a weapon, ammo, and maybe a crystal. I feel like making an article with the generic loot might help. --FLaSHBaCK HaSH 18:52, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

What I mean Edit

What I mean by "how do i post my character" is on the left side of the screen is the fallout 3 tab then special/character creation and then character builds, And i would like to post my character buil there but i don't not know to do it properly because i'm knew to this kind of stuff.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Awsome King (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I actually think that the character builds page should maybe be moved to the Forum namespace. Ausir(talk) 00:05, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Fallout 3 unique weaponsEdit

Shouldn't it be updated with unique weapons from the new DLC's? It has such things as Trench knife on it from O:A. Just a thought. SuSpence95 (Talk) 07:47, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, if you want to give me half an hour or so (so I can look up all the stats) I can do it :) SuSpence95 (Talk) 07:54, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, now are they all going to be incorporated into one so the DLC and vanilla weapons in one category? SuSpence95 (Talk) 07:59, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, please look at the sample on the page. I've copied and pasted all of it into a Word doc and am rearranging it so to divide the categories. Once that's sorted, I'll add the DLC weapons. SuSpence95 (Talk) 08:14, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I believe I have arranged it properly, I'll now add some DLC weapons. Are we having DLC separate or incorporated? SuSpence95 (Talk) 08:26, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
Finished the melee and unarmed. SuSpence95 (Talk) 08:47, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

The Captain's sidearm is repaired by Atomizers, but it looks like an Alien blaster. Which is it? SuSpence95 (Talk) 09:15, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, it's done! The only thing is perks that boost DMG like pyromaniac and xenotech expert, I didn't add the added damage. Also, I didn't add the GECK coding afraid I'd mess it up. Other than that, I think it's done :D SuSpence95 (Talk) 09:30, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Tesla cannon, Beta Tesla cannon and Heavy incinerator? SuSpence95 (Talk) 09:55, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Perk images for cut Point Lookout perks Edit

Yes, I agree, but hey we can do nothing, the fact is there. The images are present when we are add the three cut perks with the console command and they are present in the GECK. And then in the old Fallout, it is possible that several Perk have the same images, even if it is not the case in Fallout 3 =) Itachou 13:06, 11 August 2009 (UTC)


Could you stop by Forum:Videos and leave your feedback? Thanks--Kingclyde 23:49, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

FO3 item and other templates Edit

I actually believe that all such infoboxes should be made more generic, not FO3-only, especially given that Fallout: New Vegas will use the same engine and thus will need identical infoboxes to the FO3 ones. Ausir(talk) 01:24, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, I think that it won't be much of a problem in the future if people use the "Create article" pages to make them, since these will always have the right templates. Ausir(talk) 06:46, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
So, what do you suggest? I'm not that fond of having a gazillion different templates. Ausir(talk) 07:12, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
How about renaming them to something like "Beth weapon", "armor" etc., since it will likely apply to other future Bethesda-publisher Fallout games (for which the template could be IPLY weapon, armor, etc, for Interplay). Ausir(talk) 07:36, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Sorryy, I must have missed it. Not sure engines are that good of an idea, given that the Fallout 1/2 engine has no name, and the Tactics engine's name is known but is pretty obscure, and it's best to just go with the only Fallout game ever based on it. Ausir(talk) 12:01, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Lopping off zeros from base game "base id's" Edit

Is there a particular reason you're removing the leading zeros from the base id's of the base game contents? The initial two digits of the base id's in the base game can never change (always '00') because the base game has to be loaded before all mods and DLC's. I've seen it in quite a few of the base content pages, and while removing the first two leading zeros is perhaps reasonable (still unnecessary), removing the third leading zero from content that has one seems incorrect to me. It seems like this could be confusing for people new to the concept of base id's and form id's. Anyway, let me know your thoughts.


PS. (It just occurred to me that you might be using a script to edit all these pages, given their quantity and all. Maybe a rogue regular expression? (Try saying that 10 times fast when your drunk :P))

Hi there ! Edit

Sadly I've been following your struggle with some videos and these kids who embed them (especially those poorly edited and cheap-like videos). And I've noticed that nobody really knows what kind of videos you want in here and what you need them for. Therefore I now suggest that you, Ausir and other admins / decision makers will take the matter in your hands and try to find the official policy for videos in here. Im tired of re-editing and quarrelling about my videos and those completely bullshit videos that have taken over some pages. After all, I think Im the only one who has pretty well done videos for pretty much everything (I still dont know if u know how many videos I have and how popular I am in Youtube). I dont want to sound too cocky, but I've pretty much had enough of this incapability of admins in here to draw the line. Now its constant fight against different video makers and whatnot and I really dont have time for that anymore. I have my hands full with Youtube (hundreds of messages in a day) and with my videos. I know that I still dont have videos for everything, but thats only because I have this thing called "life" (job, wife, *too* many friends, family, many sport activities etc...). However, Im not going to stop making these videos and soon enough I will have videos for everything in Fallout 3. After that comes Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4, so I will be making videos for years to come. I would be more than happy to be the official video provider for this wiki, but I understand if thats not going to happen. Tho it would make me sad, since I have worked a lot for my videos and I have always backed up this wiki. I have links to this wiki in my video descriptions and in my Youtube channel as well. I direct people to this wiki from Youtube frequently when they ask me all kind of questions about Fallout 3 (I get about 60-100 questions in a day). I will not stop doing that what ever happens, since I truly love this wiki and I would be nothing without it.
When Ash left here, my dream of that idea went with her. She was supporting me with full heart and she believed that Im helping to make this wiki even better. I hope some day someone else will see the same way. Youtube1smaller CryonBrion (Talk) 04:20, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your fast reply. I totally understand all your points, dont doubt that, and I agree. Admins and other people (like me), who actually gives a shit about this wiki and its adequate content, are sunk in per se redundant edits and whatnot. And there is no need to apologize anything, since you are simply making a good point. Im not that easily unnerved person, I can take a lot, specifically from people who I respect highly. You are one of these few persons.
And what comes in being the "official" video provider, I perceive the situation well. What I would really want at this point is an approval from you, Ausir and other admins that I can take control of all videos in the wiki. What I mean, is that when I see some new video on some page, and after watching it, I can make the decision if it is good enough video to stay on that page and that I have the "power" to remove it. And if I decide to remove it and the maker of that video "attacks" against me for it, I can say that I have the authorization to supervise embedded videos on our wiki and that I can determine their validity. As I said earlier, I dont have time to actually edit this wiki that much, but I hope that you see that my intention are close to this wiki's well-being.
And I can not deny the fact that I would benefit from this all, in a way. I get thousands of views thru this wiki for my videos in a single day (I get total of 50000-60000 views/day). But then again, I do not profit at all from any of my videos, views or my subscribers, since Youtubes sponsorship and partnership services are not available here in Finland. So I dont benefit from any of this in practice. Its just the taste of fame I guess, although nobody actually knows who I really am. I dont share my identity in the web, not yet anyway.

Yes, I was meaning to ask you about these. Should each project have its own different medals, or will the Vault have one specific set of them to use? Nitty 06:40, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good. But what about users who just tacked their names onto a project, and didn't actually do anything? I've got several of those. Nitty 06:45, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

hey look at it now and tell me what you think. Gene projector i think its much better than last time. Green death35 13:09, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

ok thanx 4 ur opinion. i won't put "work in progress" into articles unless i'm at my mom's house and I can't think of the information at the time or find it on the internet like the Hair section in Gene projector. so that'll probably never happen again cuz i'm like obsessed w/this game. but yea, again thanx.

A quick question about weapons. Edit

About the Captain's sidearm. It's essentially an Alien Atomizer, but uses the skin of an Alien Blaster. Why is it classified as a unique Alien Blaster? Lincoln's repeater uses a Lever Rifle skin, but is essentially a Hunting Rifle, and is considered a completely unique weapon. Should the Sidearm also be classified as completely unique? Nitty 17:55, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Alright, I'll switch it to a unique Atomizer. Same ammo, same repair, same weapon. Thanks. Nitty 18:40, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

You edited out the idea that she'll wear Winterized Combat Armor rather than her BOS Power Armor stating "the winterized T-51b *is* better than Cross' follower armor." Winterized Combat Armor is different than Winterized T-51b Power Armor. So, this doesn't seem to make sense. Will she equip Winterized Combat Armor? If she does, is Winterized Combat Armor better than her initial Power Armor? I'd test it, but for some reason Cross has disappeared on my game, and I can't find her.

If Winterized Combat Armor isn't as good, and she will equip it, then this would be a valid bug to keep on the page - even if it's not that big of a deal. I just wanted to clarify, since the wording was confusing.

Followers equip apparel with more HP, and Winterized Combat Armor has more HP than Power Armor. ~ HAZMAT82 18:42, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

OMG, LoLz... sorry I forgot to sign that last question. I appreciate the quick response. Hazmat, I'm pretty sure Porter's right about this one. I've never noticed them equipping things with better HPs unless the HPs cause the DR value to drop. For instance, it could have a million HPs, but if it's DR is only 1 (Spacesuit), then they shouldn't equip that over almost any other piece of armor. And thank you again Porter, for the clarification. I'll try to remember to sign things from now on, even though I forget to regularly and have to go back and edit my comments again just to add it :P--Sigan 18:58, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

guidelines discussionsEdit

do I just add stuff in the sections or just copy stuff to the comments section? I see the video and images are empty, should we move over the stuff from the video forum?--Kingclyde 22:19, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Because you're the template guy... Edit

Alright, Fallout 3 unused items has two different tables of stuff. The armor table is dated, where the weapon one is more modern and easier to edit. You wouldn't happen to have some fancy tool that could change the armor table's code to the weapon table's, would you?

And yes, I know I'm being a bother. Nitty 03:16, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

So it's not useless after all... thanks, I'll get right to filling in the latest add-on stuff. Nitty 03:23, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm back, with another somewhat annoying question. :) Apocalypse gladiator armor has its own page, as do all of the cut weapons. Should we merge those into their respective articles, i.e. Metal armor for the AGA, R91 Assault Rifle for Wanda, etc., or create new pages for the rest of the content, i.e. Power-Suit Armor or Shellshocked Combat Armor? Nitty 04:45, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Hmm... should I join the discussion? I'm not an admin, and I'm not sure how helpful I could be, though... Nitty 13:01, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Good. You know how little I like to actually do things. Nitty 18:40, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Megaton Edit

Most of it was already written, including the layout section (yay) so it was mainly a matter of moving the stuff around and cutting the notes and bugs down. Spoon 14:23, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I'm going to go do the Deathclaw sanctuary since it seems no one has revamped it yet. What should I use as an example? Evergreen Mills? SuSpence95 (Talk) 15:50, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Locations such as Sugar BombsEdit

Do we really need a locations list as these are spread throughout the wastes, the pitt and point lookout?--Kingclyde 17:38, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

did you know?Edit

Hey i saw you can edit it. Can anyone add their own? Onipix 23:55, 18 August 2009 (UTC)


Should we start a weapons project after the others are done? I can do that exclusively if you want. Let me know.--Kingclyde 17:23, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Take a look at the power fist articles (reg, fisto! and shocker) as well as the brass knuckle variants and let me know what you think. That's the weapon format I wanted to follow. Let me know.--Kingclyde 20:12, 24 August 2009 (UTC)


How do you make a redirect? Onipix 00:10, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Fallout 3 Location Project---Infobox Issues Edit

Porter21, I am so confused. If you don't mind, would you detail all necessary ingredients of a complete infobox on the fallout 3 location project page? I could use some help here.

--Like-minded 11:58, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Vandal Edit

Has done Nitpicker's page twice now. Spoon 23:03, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

ppl locking pages Edit

I can understand someone locking there own page... but locking a public article like the Fallout 3 easter egg page is ridiculous especially when there is more info to add to them. grizzly locked it and i was wondering if you could put up a notice of people not locking certain pages not trying to whine---Baz 01:11, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Nevermind Edit

GOD I FEEL LIKE A RE RE lol. I just realized wat registered meant and i shoulda had a v8. but anyways peace

Abandoned ResidenceEdit

Please delete. It was created by a vandal. SuSpence95 (Talk) 02:12, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

GOG contest Edit

Good Old Games (GOG) will give us 15 games (download codes) for a contest (their games include FO1, FO2 and FOT). Any idea what the contest should be? How about one that is about participation in projects? Ausir(talk) 03:12, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, instead of "most edits" how about "most pages brought up to project standards"? As in, passing the peer review stage. Ausir(talk) 08:05, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Reviewed by me and you, then? :) Ausir(talk) 08:29, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, I suppose I could review them myself, then, or ask e.g. Grizzly for help (if he won't prefer to participate himself, that is). And I suppose I could just randomly draw the winners myself in case there's a tie. I'd also create a Fallout 1 and 2 locations project. Ausir(talk) 09:38, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
I think it will be easier if we limit it to character projects, given that the location project for FO3 is already underway and it would be difficult sorting out who did what before or during the contest. Ausir(talk) 06:59, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm currently setting up the contest page. For how long do you think should the contest run? Ausir(talk) 09:23, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
How about a point-based system, with 1 point for each of the required parts being added by a given user? It could be a hassle, but I think the participants will keep track of it themselves. Anyway, see: The Vault:Good Old Games character overhaul competition. Ausir(talk) 09:35, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Also, I was thinking of maybe giving e.g. 3 games to the winner, 2 games to 2nd place, 1 game to 10 more people. What do you think? It could increase the competition. :) Ausir(talk) 09:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
How about text re-write: 3 points, filling up infobox: 1 point, image: 1 point? Ausir(talk) 09:50, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I was also thinking of winner: 4 games, 2nd place: 3 games, 3rd place: 2 games, 6 more people: 1 game. Ausir(talk) 09:53, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

So, until September 13 then? Ausir(talk) 14:59, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I guess we could have separate point tables for each game, without infobox points for FO3, and with only non-generic images counting for FO1/2/T (so that instead of generic sprites they e.g. add a screenshot of the character in question in his normal location). Ausir(talk) 15:28, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
How about now? Ausir(talk) 16:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
It already says "Any registered user" in the rules. Ausir(talk) 16:28, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

AshRandom Edit

I really don't want to seem like an ass for asking this, but what ever happened to Ash... I've been at the wiki for about 3 months now and I noticed that she is an administrator but hasn't made any edits for a long time. I also noticed Orcidea mentioned something about an incident... I don't want to assume anything, and I would like to know.

concept art Edit

Hey its mat mod, im kinda new can you tell me how to upload pics to something? ive got some concept art i drew up

Logged out Edit

Hey Porter, It's Fat Man Spoon here. I've been logged out and the 'log in' button is broken for me. What can I do? 09:44, 22 August 2009 (UTC) (Spoony)

Nevermind, it's ok now. Spoon 09:45, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Project checklist Edit

How about having your bot put a project checklist table on top of every character/location talk page, for people to fill in? Ausir(talk) 10:01, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good, i it won't clutter the page too much. Ausir(talk) 10:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Can you make a progress table for FO1/2 and FOT projects? Ausir(talk) 14:25, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, pretty much. Ausir(talk) 14:35, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Inventory template Edit

In the {{Inventory}} template, where do you put things like ammo? "Weapon" or "otheritem"? -- Sentinel 101 16:44, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Does it have to be an exact amount (like "45 5mm Rounds") , or can I just put in "5mm Round"?--Sentinel 101 17:30, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Darn ... that's gonna be difficult for me without the GECK, but I'll just leave that part for someone else then. --Sentinel 101 17:35, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't think that list is complete ... Allistair Tenpenny, for example, doesn't have any .308 rounds listed, yet he is able to use his Sniper Rifle in his "Wasteland Safari". --Sentinel 101 17:43, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

I'll just have to reupload then.... Edit

You deleted the jpeg I was using for my Fo3 Character Build! It's taking me a bit longer to create than I originally planned. RL gets in the way, ya know? At any rate, just wanted to say I understand and thanks for your hard working keeping this place looking nice! Hope to contribute more once I get my Build finished. Take care!

DarkEternal 21:50, 24 August 2009 (UTC)DarkEternal

Ah, I see now. Thanks for the info! I'll be sure to do that. Don't worry about the image, as I've found one that is more appropriate for my Character Build. If I need any more help, I now know who to ask! Thanks again!

DarkEternal 00:28, 25 August 2009 (UTC)DarkEternal

Extension Edit

Sounds good! Ausir(talk) 08:12, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

New blog worthy?Edit

In the interview with Todd Howard he clearly says in the video that "The PS3 DLC will start rolling out in early september. I believe it's at 2:28 in the video. SuSpence95 (Talk) 08:26, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

RE: Platinum TrophyEdit

I screwed up... badly. I didn't know when you mess around with the template that it gets added to the list. Really sorry! SuSpence95 (Talk) 12:35, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

What I did was copy and paste the template from the Fallout 3 trophies/achievements to my userpage (to create my own little "trophy"). What I didn't know was that when I did, it was for some reason added to the actual list of real achievements/trophies. It was stupid on me. SuSpence95 (Talk) 12:43, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I C&P'd it from the Template: Achievement/doc if that makes a difference.... SuSpence95 (Talk) 12:46, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, nevermind. I guess I did cut it from the article then I used the template. SuSpence95 (Talk) 13:03, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

SatCom missile launcher Edit

Hey I had a question. In this article, the name of the article is it's "street" name. It does not have a name in the Pip-Boy but in the GECK it is called "Satcom Nuclear Strike". Should we rename the article to that and create a redirect or just not the GECK name in the article? Let me know. Thanks.--Kingclyde 17:54, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
