  1. Started a new game and got a fungal farm really early. So I'm producing just enough food to survive. And since it doesn't seem like fungal crops fail I don't have to worry about running out as long as I got people working it. However I chose a harder starting zone with cold waves, dust storms and meteors being common. So they keep pounding my colony but now that I got some people and a small supply of polymers I can work on another dome and bring in more guys.

    Fallout Settlement Like Games?

    I think we should take any further discussion on Surviving Mars to it's thread mostly to ensure we don't clog up this one when it's asking for varied games on a certain genre.

    Fallout Settlement Like Games?

    Surviving Mars is an excellent if difficult game as the lack of any real tutorial hurts first time players. I'd look up some guides and tips for new players. Colony management and resources. It's a game where you can really amp up the challenge and go for impossible situations. But on easier difficulties say under 150 it should be okay for beginners assuming you know a thing or two.
  4. Picked random mystery, and finished it. Man was it satisfying. I think I picked a longer path to dealing with it though and the UN doesn't like me. But MUAHAUAUHA. I have a SUN what does Earth have! NOTHING!
  5. Been playing it hard these last couple days. Sol what 200 I think. Got my first Wonder a Space Elevator. And working or maybe finished the Marsgate? I'm not sure. Marsgate is a mystery objective/challenge. One of the ones you can choose to bump up difficulty, and I think one of the harder ones. I have a little over a hundred colonists, and swimming in cash thanks to Extractor AI. Which negates the need for workers by allowing Metal and Rare Metal Extractors to function at half efficiently without workers. Which means I can load up on metals early and have cash to spare. Although it was close, nearly had a major failure due to lack of important resources like polymers and machine parts. But that Space Elevator is a major game changer for me. I can load up in seconds what took days.
  6. Gopher is usually well informed so it's possible he's trying to keep things as simple as possible and then roll out advanced guides with instructions on how to fix errors and deal with issues.
  7. Now this is a place for my Fan Lore, but any suggestions will be welcome. I intend to use this in a few RPs that I may currently be in, or have planned. Some may make the cut, others are just for fun. Updated At August 5 2016 Let me take a minute to thank my contributors in no particular order.

    Fallout Alaska Fan Lore

    Fallout Alaska OC Name: Mako Ravencroft Born March 4 2281 Age 21 Female Human, Asian descent Height 5’6” About 140 pounds Background: Mako grew up surrounded by people, born to a family of Japanese descent in the heart of Vault 121. Although there wasn’t much in the way of culture of Japan in a post apocalyptic America, what remained was bits and pieces of westernized fiction, but not all of it was so off the mark. Mako read books describing the world of old, she read tales of knights, and mages, monsters and legends of film. She however grew ever fascinated by what little Japanese culture she found, most of it described belligerent, honor bound delinquents, who formed gangs and fought claiming street justice. And as such she grew into her role, surrounded by a father; a Ranger who was sent off always on missions aiding far flung villages, a mother busy with work and brothers chasing after women. She tried her best to fit in, to be praised by her academics and studies. Yet it was never enough, not in a city as big as this, and surrounded by her perfect brothers. Who even after flirting with every girl they saw, managed to ace test after test and score the highest marks in class. Eventually she had enough herself. She modeled herself after the delinquents of old, who she saw as strong and admired. Mako founded her own gang, on the principles of loyalty, honor, and strength. Though in truth, she just found more trouble. Ascending upon Anchorage her and her motley crew fought gangs and thugs and a never ending amount of Raiders. Her father took notice soon enough, as he tried to straighten out his only daughter. He taught her to shoot, and survive off the land, and for a time this father daughter bonding lead to a decrease in her violent activities. She had only ever wanted the attention of her family anyways. Her father, with the iconic ranger duster dragged her along out into the wilds, as they sat by a fire. And his hyperactive, carefree, and loving little girl that he raised returned to him. But nothing lasts forever. The Rangers sent her Father to rescue Caravaners who had ventured into Zhang territory by accident; a freak storm forced them to find shelter. The rescue mission almost went as planned, however they were unaware that Zhang forces were marching on their location. Apparently they knew the Caravan had not left their territory. They were ordered to capture and imprison the caravaners, as well as retrieve the goods. The team of Rangers were prepared to fight if need be, but all it took was a single bullet to end his life. Mako was delirious when she heard the news, all she wanted was her father's love and attention. She wanted his praise, the thought that he could die so easily did not align with the image of him that was larger than life. There wasn't anyone else who she respected enough that she'd listen to. And one day she disappeared. Her mental state became unstable, unhinged. She became insane to a degree. She's aware of who she is to a point, but she's lost her sense of fear. Her mind swirls in a state of constant movement where all her actions send adrenaline to her body pumping her full of chaotic energy. Always moving, always in a state of flux. Her enjoyment in life is the torment she inflicts upon the Empire of Zhang, as she rains down destruction and anarchy. Personality: Chaotic, aggressive and ultimately unpredictable. Since her Father's death her mental state has become somewhat unhinged. Her hyperactive and carefree nature have turned violent towards just about anyone. There's always a chance someone will be shot in the back. Though she feigns innocence. Occupation: Raider Combat Preference: Unconventional, chaotic and highly dangerous. Closest DnD class Barbarian/Rouge. Likes dealing massive damage then retreating back into cover and disappearing.
  10. I won't watch anymore which is a shame. I need to beat the storyline and the last episode is just on that spoiler level for me, I haven't dealt with Ghost hounds yet so I should stop and pick these up later.

    What Remains of Edith Finch #5

    This entire play through feels like Murphy's law except not as fun as the cartoon. Which they did make. Milo Murphy's law. This entire family just needs to pack for everything. Tornadoes, frog storms, packs of feral wolves. You know normal things.
  12. Opened the forum and Chrome asked if I wanted to translate the page. I scrolled down asking, TRANSLATE WHAT!! I am still confused.

    Fallout New-North Fan Lore (WIP)

    Almost feels like a robot of sorts you know, saw these this morning but I was in a rush to work. Really do love the logo for Goltangage.

    Fallout New-North Fan Lore (WIP)

    If you go for a more rare mutated animals taking a focus on the people and environment then you could set up so that these mutated creatures are special and a dangerous threat few have seen. I also like how Goltangage shut down and reopened later selling a new product.

    Question regarding making small mods myself...

    I think what he's saying is that the world pauses in conversations in Fallout 3. No time passes unlike that of Skyrim or Fallout 4. NPCs and enemies will still go about their business and sometimes interrupt you by pushing you out of the way. Dragons will attack mid conversation and the world moves on. He wants to create a mod that will create the same situation. Unfortunately I know not how to script or even basic mods but I hope this does help someone who does.
  16. I'm just glad he realized he could use the elevator to get to the blocked room. I've played enough games for me to wonder how you get down there and then immediately look at the elevator and go. Yeah that looks about right.
  17. Gopher wouldn't be as lost if he had picked the map up. But this is Gopher so maybe he'd be even more lost.
  18. Jack likes the idea of having someone else in charge as long as he still gets to be in charge. I wonder if Gopher will ever finish the game that way?
  19. I think he's considering the guards in his new zone more innocent than the ones who directly aided in the coup. Could be anyways. He'll probably still murder the assassination targets. Also, predictive text following assassination is classroom. That is the direct word it suggests. Slightly off topic but it was funny.

    NUKA WORLD #19 : The Finale

    Need to do a run soon through Nuka World, not sure if I will be evil through it though. Never was able to do that well.

    Enabling console commands for survival mode?

    Well shame, thankfully Transfer Settlements is a thing. Thanks for the quick response.

    Enabling console commands for survival mode?

    Does TGM work with that? I use god mode for building a lot I mean yeah I could just additem every build material but that does get a bit more tedious. I'll check if anyone in the mod comments on it.

    Enabling console commands for survival mode?

    Would you mind sharing just so I can see what the options are for console commands. I think Survival Options enables them but I have not tested it yet to be sure.

    Fallout Alaska Fan Lore

    Right did some editing, hopefully it'll load faster and be easier to browse. Also new character time. There is a nude version out there by the artist but certainly not linking that here. Clicking the image will take you to the Deviant Art posting of below image all SFW. There is no 9 and 10, they are OCs for a RP I am in, and are not Fallout related. Victoria Bearhorn AKA Guild Leader Born to her father Franklin Bearhorn she was poised to be his successor on the day of his death, death and combat were key roles in her religion growing up; war was revered, honored and those who fell gloriously were immortalized. Vtron the Bear God was their Odin their Valhalla, and they believed foxes who swoop down and pull warriors from the battlefield like Valkyries of Norse myth. Truth be told the first Bearhorn was just a charismatic raider punk who conjured up tales of myth and legend weaved from Norse mythology and present day happenstance. Mountain Bears unlike their smaller Yao Guai cousins were massive four armed goliaths who shook the ground with each step, it was easy to see why he had modeled the religion of Vtron after these creatures and pure luck other raiders believed him. The Raiders Franklin led the ones the first Bearhorn Jack had managed to cobble together had grown into something not seen in the lower twelve commonwealths of 48 states. The petty shit raiders fought over would not fly in the harsh Alaskan state, everything including the flowers wanted you dead so raiders too grew smarter stronger; forming larger more organized bands and eventually guild like entities to those powerful enough to hold them. The Guild Victoria runs is the second largest in Alaska right below Stonewall in power, thankfully Stonewall was located in Juneau far from the Anchorage ruins they called home. As you’d expect with organization raider guilds were more like factions as the strong absorbed the weak into themselves they regulated trade, agriculture and industry. While the strong got rich they turned this wealth onto the war torn state, improving roads, building jobs and ensuring neutrality to traders passing through their lands for a fee. Guild roads were safe, and easy to travel. They had been repaired by slaves who are now free due to an agreement that saw Bearhorn’s alliance with the Arctic Rangers one secured by North Ashland himself. And one that saw the death of Franklin Bearhorn. Bringing this back to his daughter Victoria the terms of the alliance was simple, Bearhorn would ally themselves and implement a feasible plan to end their slavery within an acceptable timeframe. Only if North could fell Franklin in battle. One would assume young Victoria who watched her father be slain before her to harbor resentment but her belief in her religion was deeply rooted as was her father's, his death was glorious a fight that left North scars and one she was sure her father was pleased to have before he died of age. Some would question her ability others find her battle prowess fearsome, as she flaunts her strength and boasts her power. But most agree she is calm and composed even in the face of death, for as she would say. “Acting calm and composed is a privilege of the mighty.”

    Minions With Guns (Destiny 2 Clan)

    I've heard some disturbing talk about how tough the ban system for Destiny 2 is. And add to the fact they don't allow overlays like Discord so I'll likely never pick it up. Good for the minions who do like the game, but it's not something I'll pick up.
