    To anyone making content Mods, that require science skill,
    I am willing to offer my help in physics, chemistry or biology. :)

    I have some relevant skills in these areas and if anyone has a script, text or dialog in plot that needs to be scrubbed for realism or written, I am willing to help.

    I dont have any IT or coding skills (as evident in some of my other posts) but i want to give something to the community.

    I dont know how much we as a community care about accuracy of such things, but it is a thought.
    :wink:

    Great skills to have (I wish I had them)...but scripting is what makes the games work, we need scriptors and programmers ie: Timeslip - Killap - Nirran, etc; could you at least clone one or more of them. :)

    I have done cloning before but on on people.

    I was thinking more if someone was making a new plot and needed some plausible "science thingies" in it. ;)

    But I am not super heartbroken about it.:)

    Restrictions, ligatons, transforming, prepping, infecting, culturing..
    that kind of stuff right?

    I think fallout has that stuff already with its FEV, but that my opinion,

    ooops ther was a typo, <not> on people small difference ;)

    yes thats approximatly right those are some of the tool you may use in cloning.
    Basicallt you use restriction endonucleases to cut out desired DNA sequences and Ligases to insert them ( simplfied but roughly true).
    cloning of course is ,

    Yes FEV is in there.

    I dunno was just trying to find a way to make myself useful to the community and this is the only way I could think of. :)

    Nice offer... but finding the science (especially of the level that fallout requires!) is pretty straightforward. :D

    If you are dealy serious about helping the community - I suggest getting the official mapper... FSE and learning to script. We are desperately short of people who can actually make mods especially when more scripters are leaving than coming onto the scene atm.
