Hey Ghouly! How are you? Some idiot sent a bomb threat to our school on Monday. Meh. User-Nukey Pedobear Squee.jpegKawaii Toast.jpg 00:56, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Not much. I'm about to head to bed, since it's 9:00 here. User-Nukey Pedobear Squee.jpegKawaii Toast.jpg 01:09, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, and I did sleep wonderfully. ¡Estoy usando el Internet y es muy bueno! :D. User-Nukey Pedobear Squee.jpegKawaii Toast.jpg 09:54, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Take no prisoners!

Here. :P

Just delete the nasty comments. Nitty Tok. 21:37, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Except the ones aimed at Nukey, I want to see his reaction first. >:D Nitty Tok. 21:38, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Twisted indeed.

Free time

I stay up late on weekends and usually log on during my Information Processing class. I'm an anon then, and that sucks. Can't even move pages.

I really don't have much to do with my time. No job, no car, no friends to hang out with because they're all nitwits!, etc. That'll probably change in about 2 or 3 years, but I don't plan on the latter two things. :P Nitty Tok. 04:58, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

1. Yes, I live in Americaland. And yes, I'm already mated. No funny ideas, buster! :P
2. I can long on, I just don't want to. Also, apparently the Classic Pack was flagged for 'pornographic content'. Nitty Tok. 05:18, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

File maintenance project

Hey thanks for pointing that out - I had put it in the list of things to check for each image file, but had left it out of the tables. Metalspork and I had been changing any incorrect categorizations as we came across them, but I have now added it as a Currently used/Properly categorized section on the tables.   phoenix  txt  Mini-FO3 Logo2.png 08:51, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

I am VERY concerned that the FO1 and FO2 tables are going to be taken over by a certain Ghouly89 character :P Go hard! :)   phoenix  txt  Mini-FO3 Logo2.png 09:23, May 29, 2010 (UTC)


Your doing such a good job with the articles ^-^. A treat is for you. Also, edit this page in source for a joke.Chem Cookie.png

User image

You need a perfectly square image for it to show up properly, like my Pokemon does. Crop a bit of your image in Paint or Photoshop, or find a different one. :P Nitty Tok. 04:35, May 31, 2010 (UTC).

Mutants Rising

Does the Mutants Rising project need any artists? I would totally help out with art. Fallout hates Macs, but I can draw things. I looked at the forums and it said they want artists, but it also says they're 88% done with the mod, so maybe it's not worth me helping because I noticed this project too late. The other thing is, I know nothing about actually modding, but if I'm able to contribute some art I'd totally be up for it. Anyhow I thought I'd ask you since you're working on the project... Metalspork talk  contribs 06:41, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

I would love to do some loading screen art. Is the art required to be digital artwork, as in totally drawn in photoshop? I have a drawing tablet but I prefer doing art on paper/whatever because it's faster. If they need to be a certain file type, I can convert them to photoshop files, etc if any of the other people need to edit them. As for examples, there is a good amount on my Flickr account, but I'd try mainly looking at this set and the mostly-pen-drawings-with-less-color sets here and here. Uh... Don't let the overpopulation of fetus-y creatures deter you. Also, I'm going to be on vacation until June 7th, so I probably can't do much communication until after then. Just so you know. If you/they want, I could come up with a few ideas while I'm gone next week. Metalspork talk  contribs

00:12, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

If you send a picture, I can draw you an example, maybe like a pen drawing to start with? To see if it's what you're looking for? And I'll send you a jpeg when I get home and have a scanner. Metalspork talk  contribs 04:30, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

I'll take a picture of the drawings with my camera and send them to you, but they won't be as hi-res as the scanned images. But they'll be good enough so you can see everything, I'm just OCD about quality so I like to scan them. But yeah, if you want them, I'll send them to you before I get home. The place I'm staying is supposed to have internet so I should be able to send em. I'll email you back with the drawings. Metalspork talk  contribs

06:21, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

Aaaaactually, I'm coloring both loading scenes right now (and watching Jurassic Park :P). I just saw your message while finding Brahmin pictures, lol. I should be done in an hour or two, and I'll scan them and email you :) Yeah, I'm playing Fallout... I haven't defeated the Master yet so I'm not exactly 'done' with the main quests. It only works on the family Macbook Pro so I have to go steal it in order to play... I've only progressed as far as getting the water chip. I'm super poor and super weak. Such is wasteland life. Metalspork (word vomit) 03:54, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

I just emailed you the 'updated' versions. By not being able to post the pictures, do you mean they have to be uploaded to another website? I could load them on Flickr if you want to link to them that way (although they'd be public then... But I wouldn't have to say what they were for :P). Oh, and when I try to register, there's an anti-bot question that says "who are rising?" and I don't know what they want me to type :( I guess I'm a bot lol Metalspork (word vomit) 02:50, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Oh my gosh... Metalspork + anything slightly like a riddle = MegaFail. Mutants! Wow... Lol. Metalspork (word vomit) 07:14, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Welcome Back!

Nice to hear from you man. Yeah, my computers literally still have a mare, solve one problem, another starts. Alas, with New Vegas drawing ever closer, I must be getting back, I have two computers, so all's well. ;) How's the FO1 Character project going? StarfishCostume 23:20, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I feel ya, the only reason I started it is because I wanted to do something which it is unlikely others would want to do. Someone has got to do it.I won't be able to get back to it fully though, I have a lottttt of coursework to do at the moment, which obviously comes before this, shouldn't be long though, only have a few weeks left of term. StarfishCostume 07:38, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back reply =D

Hehe hello my friend and thank you for your message, it's really nice =).

On this, good day and soon on the Wiki ^^ ! Itachou [~talk~] 12:39, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Gizmo

I wouldn't call that a mess, you just forgot to close th gallery tag, and I'm always happy to fix those little things :) --Anon (Talk) 08:28, June 17, 2010 (UTC)


Hello my friend =).

That I saw your message on Ausir's talk page and since I'm a great contributor of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and I'm finished the game with several time, I think I can take right decision on this one.

He tells us his name in dialogue, but he said he appreciates more the name "Armpit", he thinks he's just a little bartender and he took the habit of doing so call "Armpit".

I think it may be noted on the page that its real name is "Arnold" but keep the name "Armpit" for the page name is better. Itachou [~talk~] 20:09, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel quest

Yes of course, given the few people who completes pages of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (like Fallout Tactics), I have to complete them. I just finished today the weapons of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, they are all listed with a few trick too !

Also, if you have the opportunity to buy (cheap now) or playing, I highly recommend it (like Fallout Tactics too).

I'll handle tomorrow dice my friend =). On those, good night, it's already very late in France ^^. Itachou [~talk~] 22:13, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it was pretty near half past midnight last night, but I work today (I'm at my work there ^^), and so it's late to be fit for tomorrow.
Hmm... for Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, you can always test but I don't think it's backwards-compatible with the Xbox360, but for the PS3 should be good.
You can also test it with emulator (PCSX2) or buying a PS2, which costs about $45 now (but it's a lot for a single game, except you have any other PS2 game to be tested, personally, though I have a Wii and a PS3, I still have my PS2).
But frankly, it's an excellent game, weapons are really well thought out and excellent (like the Continuous Laser Fire , Monster Ripper or the Shredder, a kind of Big Gun Shotgun), encounters with cult characters like The Vault Dweller, Harold and Rhombus yet, and a very nice story.
For Fallout Tactics, is true that the beginning is awfully hard, but you're missing a really excellent game, which lets you play ghouls or Super Mutants with unique traits and perks, a excellente story, controllable vehicles, and especially, especially the MEC Gauss Minigun, which is just a divine weapon.
Of those, good day to you my friend and see you soon =) ! Itachou [~talk~] 11:10, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Fallout 3 Hate

Actually, I do have some proof. In the forum post, Grizzly commented: "I think the fact that they're in Fallout 3 makes them miserable enough. Can't top that. Tagaziel (call!) 17:49, July 26, 2010 (UTC)". Nukey (talk) 04:14, August 2, 2010 (UTC)


At ease, corporal. XP

What's up? How's Mutants Rising? Haven't seen you around much. Nitty Tok. 23:39, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Mutants Rising is on my Bucket List. X3
Critters look guud. I'm waiting for the black Enclave combat armor coming in the next RP update. :D Nitty Tok. 23:55, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
To be fair, I was skeptical until I looked at the list of contributors and saw your name. I was like "Yeeeessssss! Someone who speaks flawless English!". Which in turn is no offense to Lexx. :/ Nitty Tok. 00:12, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back

Hey! I haven't seen you on for months. How have you been? There's been so much news about F: NV! Nukey (talk) 23:48, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, there's a few new users that you'd probably like to meet:

  • Deadlykris: He's really resourceful with the G.E.C.K. and he's on often as well.
  • TrailerParkApe: Also resourceful, he's moved a lot of pages lately due to a de-capitalization project.

These user's also look like potential administrators as well :). Anyways, hope your doing fine. Have a nice day/night. Nukey (talk) 23:59, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Not much interesting going on. Summer vacation is almost over, so I'll be going into my last year of junior high. I can see why you've been avoiding the spoilers. But, you can't avoid them for much longer :P. Nukey (talk) 00:02, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Custom Presents

Thanks for the presents, they're appreciated :) I think I prefer Grizzly's original version though - I'm just not a fan of animated gifs in general. Good to see you around more often again :) -- Porter21 (talk) 14:25, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Mutants. They be Risin'.

Yas. I check the forum a lot, although it seems like not much is going on. I've been working a lot on sculptures lately, although I do have time to do some sketches... I should probably do some stuff. I just don't really know what to do?
Random question. Is there a dogmeat equivalent in this game? Wouldn't it be cool to have a dogmeat TH? I mean, I would be willing to do the modeling, since I'm learning a lot with Blender at the moment. Plus I'm decent at animals, and it'd be cool and wouldn't require voiceovers, just dog sound effects, lol. Just a thought. Metalspork (word vomit) 00:04, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I remember that. A sketch of him in his car-throne thing, if I remember correctly. I'll try taking a stab at that soon, I'm going to watch some TV/movies tonight so I'll try working on it then :)
Dogmeat TH I could do (well, I know nothing about animating it but I'd guess it wouldn't be that hard for me to learn, or for someone else to do...?) once I learn a bit more about Blender. I can do like, boxier stuff now but I'm working on doing more. I wish I had done this like 7 years ago, because I took a class back then and I could make 3D dolphins/heads and shit, it was awesome, but now I forgot everything :P I'm a little busy right now with art shows and stuff but I do have enough time to work on it, I just need to not procrastinate. Metalspork (word vomit) 03:39, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Linking external images

Thanks for your message, as it's actually made me aware that displaying external images seems to have been disabled. It used to work by simply inserting the URL into any wiki page, but now that results in a link :/ -- Porter21 (talk) 06:47, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

I guess Wikia disabled it for all wikis, so the chances of getting it reenabled for The Vault are slim to none. -- Porter21 (talk) 12:50, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Protect the Simple pages while you're at it, will ya? Nitty Tok. 17:55, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

I've been arguing with myself, mostly. Fixing the stats for Tactics guns, uploading renamed png files of the Tactics guns, debating over how much more of Simple should be integrated into the Vault... Stuff like that. Nitty Tok. 18:04, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

Tactics artwork

Don't jump to conclusions; there's still a large amount of sprites from Tatics that are either not here or are of very low quality.

Fan Made Fallout has all of the F1 and F2 sprites still hanging around, though. Nitty Tok. 12:49, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

I can tell you right off the bat that we need to replace the Grenade pistol and Tank gun pictures with trimmed down .png files that just barely fit in the infoboxes. Naming format is 'tactics in-game name of gun in all lowercase'.png, 'kay? Nitty Tok. 22:44, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
You got these two?
Well, you... uh...
Wanna take the nasty-ass black jaggies off of the Bug-on-the-shell? Nitty Tok. 04:07, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
...where is that grenade pistol image, exactly? Nitty Tok. 04:13, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I don't really know of any more sprites we need that I can't get myself. I'll yell if I find more stuff.
Though, you should really keep an eye out for any patches for Tactics beyond the official 1.27; it's still buggy as all hell. (And if you need something to do after completing Mutants Rising, PLEASE fix the dialogue errors in Tactics!) Nitty Tok. 04:24, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
For weapons, it's 'tactics', then the name of the weapon. So, it would be 'tactics grenade pistol.png'. The consumables can be just 'bug-on-the-shell.png'. Nitty Tok. 04:33, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Awesome. Goodnight Ghouly.
And I'm going to hold you to fixing the dialogue now. :P Nitty Tok. 04:48, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

I'll get 'em. Nitty Tok. 04:53, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Argh, there's some white junk tacked onto the bug-on-a-shell picture. I'll get that too, you get some sleep. :D Nitty Tok. 04:57, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Html / Css help

Not sure I completely understand what you're looking for. Are you having trouble with the layout (i.e. arranging the various page elements side by side) or with replicating the functionality (i.e. displaying different images depending on the user's choices)? The latter can't be done with HTML alone; it'd require JavaScript (or some other script) to show/hide the various images. Maybe you can find something suitable by searching for JavaScript galleries - otherwise this will be quite a bit of work. -- Porter21 (talk) 19:11, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the easiest way to do something like that is with a table. Something like:
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" style="border: 2px solid green; background-color: darkgrey;">
  <td style="border-right: 1px solid white; vertical-align: top;">
   <a href="">Link</a>
  <td style="vertical-align: top;">
    <select name="box1" size="1">
     <option>Option 1</option>
     <option>Option 2</option>
     <option>Option 3</option>
    <select name="box2" size="1">
     <option>Option 1</option>
     <option>Option 2</option>
     <option>Option 3</option>
    <select name="box3" size="1">
     <option>Option 1</option>
     <option>Option 2</option>
     <option>Option 3</option>
  <td style="border-right: 1px solid white; vertical-align: top; text-align: center;">

Special Request for Maintenance Help

Porter has pointed out that Category:Nominated for deletion has a backlog of about 2,000 image files. Please give this category some attention. I am asking you and about 20 other editors who have shown a willingness to contribute regularly to The Vault to aim for reviewing and taking appropriate action on 100 of the images marked for deletion. If we all do our part, things will be manageable again by the end of the holidays. Thanks for your help!

  • If an image has been superceded by a better image, delete it.
  • If an image is unused or unlinked to by any page, delete it unless it is unique and worth having. Perhaps we will use it sometime. If you can think of a use, please add it to that page.
  • If an image should not be deleted, remove the delete tag.


Hi Ghouly. Yes, that's true. I am kind of addicted to the Fallout wiki, especially when it comes to images. Thanks for the present! --Jspoelstra 20:34, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

Van Buren navbox

Looks good! Although maybe we should just split it into separate navboxes for different types of content, like with other main games (and create game-specific navboxes for things like factions, creatures, etc. for all games while we're at it). Ausir(talk) 04:35, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Wrong category

Ok, I made a little mistake there, creature instead of non-player character..., but it was at least to Fallout. I remember categorizing them, I was not sure at the time if it should be creature or non-player character. I think you can forgive me; 5 mistakes (or a little more) out of a few thousand categorized images isn't too bad I should think. But no harm done.

Thanks for making me feel so welcome to the wikia! I know it is a message that is compulsory but still!! Just asking what is you're fave fallout game and fave fallout new vegas character???

Thanks again

Yeah, that's what I was trying to say by compulsory but it didn't exactly come out correct :)

I think New vegas is mine as it feels like more of a conflict if you know what I mean?? Also It has a fair amount of humor...

My fave character well that is hard.....Maybe the king??? Or maybe boone.

But sorry for another question, what is your fave mission in new vegas/ campaign that you would choose NCR/Caesars legion/independant/Mr.House!!

Legendary creatures

Hi Ghouly, What do you think of this? All legendary creatures (which are unique) have been decapped (some of them by an admin). I'd say they should all be capped due to them being unique. --Jspoelstra 15:24, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Ghouly, can you (being an admin) take a look at this Special:Contributions/ user? He's not behaving well... Jspoelstra 01:11, January 23, 2011 (UTC)


Does it really matter? It doesn't sound good rolling off the tongue, either, so... {{SUBST:Signatures/YuriKaslov}} 02:52, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Bollocks. Every time I get a message on this wiki it's another damn lecture. {{SUBST:Signatures/YuriKaslov}} 03:02, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for the info about searching the maps. Scooter4849 12:47, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

FO1 & FO2 overhaul

Hi Ghouly, I've seen you uploaded some weapon images from FO1. Maybe we could get together and sort out some plans for improving several FO1 & FO2 articles? Can I reach you via some instant messenger or IRC?

Would be glad to work with you on some of the articles :) Ryzawy 15:43, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Honestly, it's hard not to notice the great effort you put in those articles, very good work! ;)
Sounds like a good further plan, I think we'll definitely work something out to distribute the work on this.
Anyhow, I'm ready right now, you can find me via IRC (#wikia-fallout @ freenode), if you got some spare time right now. --   ryzawy  (talk)   19:26, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Harold and Deathclaw

I am only bothering you for this question because you were one of the contributers to the article for the quest where you help Butch find out what's been happening to his caravans and plus it said you were knowledgable about Fallout. Anyway I talked to Harold about the Deathclaw, waited a little and did some other stuff, then I came back and now when I try to talk to Slappy he doesn't give me an option to take me to the Deathclaw's cave. Do I have to talk to Slappy at a certain time or did I miss my chance when I didn't talk to him right after talking to Harold? Thank you for reading and I look forward to you response.

Okay thanks I'll have to try that.

I just recently posted this.

I posted something about the I put a spell on you quest on New Vegas, the problem is I went out to investigate the miss haps and I told curtis about the lead and waited till 2 am went to the tower and found curtis there I killed him and found the code for the bomb and I went to tell Hsu and he told me to defuse the bomb and I did when the objective told me to report back to Hsu i did and there was no speech option to tell him about me defusing it please help.

Infobox item

Just to let you know, I have edited it so that it auto links to the dialogue file. ☣Avatar☣ 05:18, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Forget what I said, I did make it auto link, but it then also showed in all item boxes. ☣Avatar☣ 06:52, February 1, 2011 (UTC)


☣Avatar☣ 21:32, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Ahhh, ok then it needs to be a .ogg file format, details can be found helpwiki:Audio_files and here, it is enabled for us already. Concern it then going to be about copyright etc since the Wiki will be hosting the file. ☣Avatar☣ 23:15, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, like GhostAvatar mentioned the .ogg format is supported by MediaWiki. There's some help on converting at wikipedia:Wikipedia:Creation and usage of media files#Audio. I'll see about importing/adapting Wikipedia's Template:Listen when I get the chance. -- Porter21 (talk) 00:55, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
Cant agree more, hence why I suggested the youtube option first. Why they cant just make it like any other player and keep it simple is beyond me. ☣Avatar☣ 03:49, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
Ohhh and you do realise, we now need a new set of categories for audio files hihi. ☣Avatar☣ 03:51, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
Very true, guess that's up to Porter, cus I have no idea how to change that part of the Wiki. ☣Avatar☣ 03:59, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: This page provides interface text for the software, and is locked to prevent abuse..... dang ☣Avatar☣ 04:18, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
I think they look a bit better if you place the player first, followed by the transcript Hakunin. ☣Avatar☣ 07:59, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

( No, you don't have to ask for permission ;) Regarding visuals, I've submitted a bug report to Wikia - hopefully they'll at least fix the icon exceeding the boundaries of the button. As for the licenses, I think it'd be easier to simply replace the word "image" with the more general "file" in the existing copyright tags - I'm gonna go ahead and do that. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:12, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

To be honest, I'd rather not mess around with the button style. Currently, all buttons can be styled at once via the Theme Designer; I don't want to take that away unless absolutely necessary, plus I'd have to constantly patch it up each time Wikia changes the underlying CSS. Maybe they'll notice that it isn't that brilliant-looking when looking at the icon issue - one can always hope ;) Can't say I can confirm the scaling issue - it scales fine for me on the page you linked. Might be down to the browser or which media players you have installed on your computer.
I've also finished {{Listen}} with which audio snippets can be placed properly in articles. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:08, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
I think the look is intentional, for monobook it has the normal wiki colors. Guess they wanted it to fit in with all the other green buttons for the new look, so I wouldnt hold out much hope. ☣Avatar☣ 18:36, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
It works fine on my computer; both the button and the player respect width limits. However, I just double-checked with my notebook, and there I indeed have the same issue as you described (despite using the same browser). No idea what that's caused by, but I don't think I'll be able to do anything about it, sorry. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:47, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
I take it this is chrome you are bothing seeing it in? ☣Avatar☣ 09:12, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Shady Sands split

I thought I'd explain the reasoning here: the Shady Sands is intended to be an overview article, compiling information on Shady Sands as it appears in Fallout 1/2 and how it is mentioned in Fallout: New Vegas. Yes, I know it's named NCR in Fallout 2, but it is consistently referred to as Shady Sands throughout New Vegas. Rather than having the history split across two different articles and creating chaos, I endeavoured to split gameplay information into separate topics and merge historical details into one, since otherwise, the articles were a damn mess.

10,000th edit

LOL Thanks, I didn't even realise, I knew I was close but I thought I had a few hundred left to do hihi. ☣Avatar☣ 05:52, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

LOL, I hope I didn't keep you waiting to long, kinda got distracted for a moment watching Star Trek II. ☣Avatar☣ 06:02, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
Hihi, I thought you had gone to bed. ☣Avatar☣ 06:20, February 3, 2011 (UTC)


That'll be quite the list :P Probably more or less all templates which you imported from the Vault - I went through all of them a while back and streamlined the CSS classes. I'll go over Vault-Tec Labs' template repository and compile a detailed list when I get the chance. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:21, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

The list isn't quite as long as I thought.
-- Porter21 (talk) 18:54, February 10, 2011 (UTC)


Yeah, I apologize for the upload. I am unable to get images from Fallout 2 via game, due to my lack of owning it, but I was finding a bunch of images online and uploading them. I hope the image can serve its purpose until I can properly replace it or someone else can. Sombar1 17:12, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't want to push the work onto anyone else, although I started the project to begin the process because I have limited abilities and time to do so due to school. I should be able to get the Fallouts relatively soon, within the next two months or so when my time isn't so stretched, but then I will be working hard at all of the major Fallouts, especially the locations of Fallout 2, but I am working at locating Fallout 2 pictures even without the game. Sombar1 03:52, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Fallout map images

It's an interesting idea, but I think we should remain consistent and if we can't remove them from some images, then we should leave them in for all. I think you'll agree with my reasoning that consistency is key and that since grids play a role in the gameplay, they should be visible, if only to give new players a rough idea where they are located.

Have you managed to convert Fallout demo's map for the Fo2 Mapper, by the way? Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 08:18, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

No lighting, meaning they're at default brightness. I think all dark Fo1 maps should be converted into Fallout 2 format and remade, because the lack of lighting makes it impossible to make out what's going on. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 08:29, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for making the maps for Fallout 2. I must admit that I don't know much on the subject, but when I looked up Unfinished Vault the artical Fallout 2 locations didn't have it on there, your map lacks this location as well. I just wished to inform you of my observation.--Ant2242 01:06, 1 December 2011 (UTC)


Hi :) the reason for the revert was because the image was unnecessary, and in some ways actually worse. The cinematic from which that screenshot was taken was actually recorded at a resolution of 640x480, and scaling it up from that doesn't actually add any extra detail to the image, it just stretches everything, which is apparent when viewing it at full resolution. Secondly, the quality of the image was actually worse due to JPEG compression. While my image was taken directly from the game as a bmp file and saved with the lowest possible loss, on yours the artifacts can be seen even when viewing your image when scaled down. Hope this answers your question, --Flower of Pock-Lips 02:27, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

Saw your convo, so I decided to take a stab at it, how about this File:Test.png User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 03:40, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that image is fine! --Flower of Pock-Lips 19:06, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Re-formatting admin request

Thx for tidying up my admin request, Ghouly. Now I think I'm going to frame it and hang it over my bed! Greets, Jspoelstra 20:45, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, Ghouly, for your support in the past few months and now with my admin request. Your tokens of appreciation have inspired me to contribute to the Vault the best way I can! Greets, Jspoelstra 14:28, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Yes! There are about 500 left in the Image needed category. A lot of them related to the older Fallout games. I just may get to them in due time. I humbly ask you, you being the classic Fallout ghuru, if it's ok I upload images from those games should I get to it =). I'm still looking for an opportunity to play those older games. Greets, Jspoelstra 18:19, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Classic Fallout images

Allright, I'll do that. The 2 I did were a bit dark, a simple click in Photoshop improved them. But I did rename them to jpg. In the future I'll give them the .png extention then. Greets, Jspoelstra 15:04, March 8, 2011 (UTC)

Vault boy Fallout demo

Hey hello Ghouly89 ;)

Thanks for correcting and emerged an fresh image from the Fallout demo. I haven't the Fallout demo on my computer, just old image I took a long time ago on a French site, and some name as you saw was not the original ones.

Nice evening and see soon my friend! Itachou [~talk~] 01:26, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Re-hello Ghouly!
Well, looking closer, there are some mistakes in the image, like Vault Boy used in the final version of the game and a forget of one vault boy. I also acquire the demo and I'll put other informations and change some stuff.
Finally, we have the skin of this demo! Nice evening my friend and see soon! Itachou [~talk~] 17:49, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

multiple followers

Hey its me enclave, do you know how to get multiple followers in fo3 or fonv. If so thanks, if not well... okay. i will see you later. 01:02, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Hi there

Heyy, Ghouly, long time no see. Nice to see your name here today. Probably busy with other things, right? Enjoying the weather a bit. Well, hope to see you here some more again. Greets, JspoelJspoel Vault Boy.png 13:42, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

  • Good to see you you're doing something extra for The Vault. I'm sure you'll let us know of further interesting progress. I'm still very active, it has not dropped much, has it? Almost a 1000 edits a week on average. I want to (and think can) reach 25,000 edits before being a member 6 months. Still a lot of work left (projects and so on).


Hi Ghouly, Thanks for correcting that for me. Like you said, I'm sorta new to the whole wikia editing scene, so I was just trying to do anything I could to help. Next time I'll try to upload higher quality pictures. Thanks again, TheSquishyTanker 17:21, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Ultra-Lux is not loosly based on the mirage.

Just noticed something when researching the Ultra-Lux article. The casino itself is loosly based off of Caesars Palace not the Mirage. If I could edit the header, I would, but I can't nor do I know how to. Just dont want to fuck things up, so I'd figure I'd let a sysop know

Here is a comparison picture Caesars Palace front entrance

Mirage Front Entrance (view from the venetian hotel)

As you can see, Caesars Palace has a moat, or pond, in the front entrance, the Mirage, on the other hand, has a volcano.

FO3 NPC project

Hello Ghouly,

Maybe you have forgotten about the Fallout 3 NPC overhaul project and maybe you haven't. I have recently been pouring lots of work into the project and have finished essentially the majority of all unfinished sections, including all the add-ons. However, there is one thing that I cannot do and that is give peer reviews. As the new project leader, I'm asking to to take some time out of your online schedule and do some reviews on the project, if you'd be so kind. Who knows? If I get enough people doing peer reviews, we could finally finish this project. We didn't finish it before Fallout: New Vegas came out like we hoped, but at least we can finish it. Best regards, Kastera (talk) 22:38, May 24, 2011 (UTC)


Hello there Ghouly,

I don't think that we have spoken before, but I wanted to ask you something about your project, the Fallout 1 and 2 characters project to be precise. I have been the only person working on this for the previous two months and I see that you have not been here for some time. People continue to sign up to the project, but they do nothing to help. This may sound rude, but I have no intention to come across in that manner, but I wanted to ask if I could take over as the project leader. I really don't want to offend you and I hope this doesn't because I would never want to offend anyone (even more so you as we may soon be working on MR dialogue together if all goes well with Ardent), but it really needs to be put into gear again and as I am here every day, and doing the project as often as I can. Hence my request. I really want to finish this project, but without the authority to get people working, it will take me months. Thank you for your time, and I hope you will fulfil my proposal. All the best, TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png.

Fo1 Deathclaw's Lair.png

Hello my friend ;)

Why you have narrowed the image of Deathclaw's Lair? Please don't do that my friend, more an image is big, better it is, for the quality and for the details (and we have an infinite place for all files on The Vault server so the size does not take into account).

Have a nice evening and see you soon! Itachou [~talk~] 21:54, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
