Hi there![edit source]

Welcome to the Vault!

Welcome to our Fallout wiki, and thank you for your contributions! There's a lot to do around here, so I hope you'll stay with us and make many more improvements.

Recent changes is a great first stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
If you haven't already, create a user page about yourself! If you do, we'll be able to know you better as a member of our community.
Questions? You can ask in the Forum or on the "discussion" page associated with each article, or post a message on my talk page!
Need help? The Help page has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit.

I'm really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you!

Thanks! -- Sentinel 101 16:28, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Hey! As a fellow member this holds no real weight, but I want to thank you for all your edits so far! --Vault Snake 16:28, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Vault Snake. It's nice to know my contributions are appreciated.--Sentinel 101 16:30, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll add to that. Thank you for all the contributions. Good to have another user with an eye for edits. And a 360 user too. :) -- Vicious Dog alive.jpg Five Dog (talk) 18:53, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Ashur's PA[edit source]

The screenie is not of Ashur himself, it's the Lone Wanderer in his PA. Ausir 15:50, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh! Sorry for that. I've removed the image.--Sentinel 101 15:55, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Only to find out I've removed it from the wrong page ... my mistake. I've already undone it. Sorry! --Sentinel 101 15:56, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

T-45d[edit source]

I originally assumed that it can't be T-45d because it does not run on fusion cells, but then I came to the conclusion that it must be the T-45d after all, since the T-45d is mentioned in FO3, and Bethesda probably simply ignored the fusion cell issue due to technical reasons, just like e.g. the Ripper does not use energy cells anymore in FO3, while it did in FO1 and 2. Ausir 19:08, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

That makes sense ... seems you're right. Allright. Thanks for the swift reply! --Sentinel 101 19:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Ref tag[edit source]

The tag I used was the one all the other links had, and when you use the one you did, you get "name="http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/vault/diaries_diary9-04.28.09.html" " under the ref section. I think they both work, just one is completly inside a tag (and uses name=), the other uses sepaerate tags (and dosn't use name=) DragonJTS 18:34, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

The ref tag you added didn't work right; it added a red error message under "references". See here. I added a wrong one too, forgot to remove "name=" ... . -- Sentinel 101 18:42, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
oh, how did I miss that. And i see why it didn't work, too. DragonJTS 18:44, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Broken Steel weapons[edit source]

I've added the GECK statistics, V:W and DMG/AP are calculations done based on other values in the table I believe. -- Porter21 (talk) 18:16, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

The Pyromaniac weapons look right to me. Regarding MDPS, I have no clue how they calculated that number either... -- Porter21 (talk) 20:09, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta[edit source]

I've added it. Changing the sidebar is restricted to sys-ops (as is editing of all pages in the MediaWiki namespace), hence you couldn't have changed it even if you knew how :) -- Porter21 (talk) 18:25, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

SPECIAL[edit source]

Can you put SPECIAL in the infoboxes in the form "6 ST, 5 PE, 4 EN, 4 CH, 4 IN, 6 AG, 4 LK" rather than "6 5 4 4 4 6 4"? It's more convenient to read. Ausir 18:40, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

OK. --Sentinel 101 14:45, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Race[edit source]

Hey there. I talked to Ausir about the race thing. I suggested maybe adding another line to the info box to differentiate. For instance one line says human and the other says Caucasian. What do you think?--Kingclyde 17:19, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Mary Holden / Charisma[edit source]

Where did you get the CH 90 for Mary Holden from? Just asking because her Charisma was 10 when I looked it up in the GECK; however, that could just be the editor capping the raw data. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:31, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

I get all SPECIAL stats from User: Mirar/Chars. Since I don't have access to the G.E.C.K. myself, I've got to look it up there. Just in case, but could you check the stats of Beatrice Armstrong and Ellen DeLoria with the G.E.C.K.? They showed similar Charisma stats. --Sentinel 101 17:36, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
It's the same for them, CH 10. I suspect Mirar got his data from the raw data files and the GECK caps the values at the maximum possible value (as does the game probably). -- Porter21 (talk) 17:42, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

MZ screenshot[edit source]

Can you please submit it as news using Special:CreateBlogPage? Ausir(talk) 14:40, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Done. Hope I did it right though. Not used to creating blogs. --Sentinel 101 14:54, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, edited it a bit and added the news categories. I could use some help with the newsposting, so I'm not the only one posting news. :) Ausir(talk) 14:56, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Mass Effect?[edit source]

Is mass effect a good game? I only recently got into rpgs.--LoneMerc101 19:58, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

That all depends on what kind of games you like, what your playstyle is, ... . Personally, I quite liked Mass Effect (but liked Fallout 3 more). It's somewhat similar to Oblivion and Fallout 3; Main Quest plus lots of side quests, nearly complete freedom to go where you want (once you reach a certain point in the game), being able to play good / evil, lots of weapons and armor to choose from, ... . One of the big diffirences is that you're nearly always accompanied by your team; that's yourself plus two others (but, again, you can choose from a total of about five). If you want to learn more I'd recommend going to the Mass Effect Wiki, if you haven't aready. --Sentinel 101 14:16, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Sysop[edit source]

Would you maybe like to become a sysop? :) You're doing a good job here.

Please let Ausir know whether you want to or not (I'm going to be away for a while). -- Porter21 (talk) 20:29, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

I already suspected you were on vacation :) Guess that means I can put my new bureaucrat powers to use. Congratulations, you are now a sysop :) To get an overview of your new "abilities", see Help:User access levels#What can administrators do on a wiki?. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:41, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
COngratulations sentinel,you earned it!But sadly,i don't think i'd be allowed to make a COngratulations on becoming an admin template. You waste my time, motherfucker. 18:34, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta achievements[edit source]

How have you unlocked Mothership Zeta achievements before it's relased?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Piotrek1 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

He did not unlock them, if you are talking about the achievements listed on the Mothership Zeta page, the description and images were released from Bethesda. Also sign your post with 4 ~ Spence 07:28, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Also, Congrats on making Sysop Sentinel101! Spence 07:30, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I found an user who unlocked those, but i don't know I can type his gamertag here.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Piotrek1 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hmmm... I'm not sure then. Spence 07:39, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

If you have the PC version you can unlock the achievements via console (it's been possible since the 1.7 patch). That's how people who already "have" the achievements got them. -- Porter21 (talk) 07:42, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Well that takes the fun out of the game! Who/ why would anyone want to do that? Spence 14:16, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Groovatron[edit source]

MZ release[edit source]

Don't you just love DLC release days? :) -- Porter21 (talk) 07:56, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, once it's out the "alin AtmoZier - the aLin atomzer is a wepon in mothershp zeta" articles are going to start coming in :P -- Porter21 (talk) 08:17, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Perk damage[edit source]

I suppose critical damage is increased as well. In the GECK, e.g. Xenotech works as "multiply value of calculated weapon damage by 1.2" which to me seems to include all damage. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:05, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Good question, I'm afraid I don't really know. AoE damage does not directly originate from the weapon itself (but an "explosion" source) so I'm not sure whether or not it's affected. Maybe Servius or Macros would know better, they've been more involved with weapon/GECK stuff than me. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:23, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Projects[edit source]

Please join the discussion here: Forum:Projects. Thanks in advance :) -- Porter21 (talk) 12:04, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

New pages[edit source]

Are you using the Rich-Text-Editor? I'm asking because for some reason the categories are missing when you create new pages (I'm assuming you use the createarticle pages, hope that's correct).

Another small thing: Please add any new location pages you create to the progress table at The Vault:Fallout 3 locations project#Progress/assignment tables so they don't get missed. It'd also be good if you could mark off the pages where you've already added the cell names/IDs there :) -- Porter21 (talk) 16:05, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Inventory template[edit source]

I'd put ammo in "other items". -- Porter21 (talk) 17:07, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Exact would be better :) -- Porter21 (talk) 17:32, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
User:Mirar/Chars has the inventory items with exact amounts - of course, that's only for base FO3. One day I'm gonna have to figure out how Mirar made those data dumps... -- Porter21 (talk) 17:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
You're right, I hadn't noticed that before. The list does not include leveled/randomized items. (Don't ask me why Tenpenny's ammo is a leveled item ;)) -- Porter21 (talk) 17:48, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

GOG competition[edit source]

So, will you be joining the GOG competition? It looks as if no one's interested for now (or maybe it's simply because of vacation time some users are somewhat less active for now). Ausir(talk) 15:27, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Help needed in adding Ref/Cell ID for Fallout 3 Locations Project[edit source]

Greeting to you! Could you help me adding ref id/cell ID for MDPL-05, MDPL-13, MDPL-16, MDPL-21 and MDPL Mass Relay System articles.

Thank you.

--Like-minded 10:58, September 3, 2009 (UTC)

Age and references[edit source]

Instead of adding age to the intro section, please add it in the background section, in the form of the year of birth instead. So instead of saying "Lucy is an 11-year-old girl", put "Lucy was born in 2266." under "Background".

Also, instead of having several separate references to the guide, make them all link to the same reference. E.g. make the first one <ref name="FO3 Guide">[[Fallout 3 Official Game Guide]]</ref> and then use <ref name="FO3 Guide" /> for the latter ones. Ausir(talk) 17:30, September 3, 2009 (UTC)

Don't redirect dates just to Timeline, but to e.g. Timeline#2212. Ausir(talk) 17:58, September 3, 2009 (UTC)

There we go. Everybody's is done. Spoon 16:00, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

Fallout 3 notes[edit source]

Fallout 3 Notes / GOG contest[edit source]

I'm planning to put the notes in a table like at Fallout 3 holodisks, just without the "type" field.

Regarding the download codes, you'll have to ask Ausir. He's the one who's been in touch with GOG. -- Porter21 (talk) 14:10, September 16, 2009 (UTC)

Policies and guidelines[edit source]

Please check the policies and guidelines I've written up and see whether anything is unclear, otherwise needs changing or needs to be added. It would be nice to give some feedback on the project talk page even if you have nothing to criticize.

If possible, I'd like to put these into effect by the end of the week. The project has been dragging on for so long with little input that I'm simply tired of it. -- Porter21 (talk) 16:16, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

hi, you recently deleted my page i was working on (Endgame Scenarios (New Vegas), you stated its "moved" to a section of another page but it was DELETED. the page you directed to does not cover the information my page did. and my page directed to that page for the information it covered as the two pages were covering different content. there are a few pages that direct to my page as well, now leading to a deadend. I was still working on it to expand its content. and dont have a backup. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Trusselo (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Theme Designer[edit source]

Looks like one of the admins changed all the site's colors using the Theme Designer again. Do NOT do that. Looks like some people think that it only changes their theme and do not realize that it screws up the skin for the entire wiki. It's an administrative tool, not something for setting up a personal theme. Ausir(talk) 17:00, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

How to read an NPC's GECK page[edit source]

Hi there,

First, I just want to say it's great to see another user uploading the NPC stats from the GECK into the game. I've been doing it for a while for the Fallout 3 NPC pages, and was hoping others would join in eventually. Thank you for working on it.

I'm just writing to clarify what some of the info in the NPC pages of the GECK means.

1) The stats tab shows 2 health stats: Base Health and Calculated Health. Base Health is actually the amount of health added to the NPC upon creation. Calculated Health is their actual health in the game (base health + health from endurance + health from leveling up). So, an NPC's "hit points" would be their Calculated Health, not their Base Health.

2) For NPCs that level with the player, the stats shown are for their minimum level (Calc Min). To show what their health and skills would be at higher levels, you actually have to change the Calc Min value to the level whose stats you want to see, then switch away from and then back to the stats tab so the auto-calc will re-adjust the displayed stats to the new level. I.E. Lanius has 845 health at Level 15 (his minimum level). To see his stats at Level 30, you need to change the Calc Min value from 15 to 30, then click on Traits and back to Stats again. The auto-calc will show that his skills have increased to 100, and his health has increased to 920. When you're done, you can just click cancel to close the NPC box without changing any data values.

You can confirm this in-game by clicking on an NPC in the console until their PRID appears, then typing getav health to show their health, getav meleeeapons to show their melee weapons skill, etc. For New Vegas you can also use the Perk that shows NPC's hit points and DT.

Anyway, just FYI. I hope I made sense, it's almost time for me to get some sleep and I know my instructions are kind of jittery.

New policy on inactive admins[edit source]

This is a friendly notice to inform you of a recent policy change here at Nukapedia. We have enacted a policy concerning all inactive admins/mods/chat mods who have not edited here in over 9 months. As your most recent edit was on December 1, 2010, you are one of the those who fits that criteria. We felt it important to get in touch with you to give you the opportunity to again become an active contributing editor and member of the Nukapedia community, whilst retaining your user rights. Please respond on my talk page, otherwise, if we do not hear back from you by October 16th, as well as see an increased presence on the wiki, your extra user rights will be removed. You will have the opportunity to respond to a bureaucrat to request them back at any point after becoming edit active for at least one month and show an active desire to make continued contributions again on Nukapedia. Thank you for your time.--Kingclyde (talk) 06:14, October 3, 2012 (UTC)
