    The new critters under construction (Mr. Black and Miss Punky), need to have all of their frames changed before they can go into the game (50,000+ for each character), otherwise if your character tried to use a weapon who's animations aren't in the game, the character will revert back to the original state.

    @Endocore - your scrutiny is insane, that's why we love you. Maybe you run Bethesda's QA department, they need you...:wink:

    Fifty thousand?!?! That sounds horrible and ridiculously daunting. (Or as Jabba The Hut would say, "Un yung kosa fifty hahtoo?!")

    Feel free to apply said scrutiny to FIXT if you ever play it. Feedback is always a good thing.

    Cheers :D

    This is a known bug that has been around since Vanilla. Hopefully you have a previous save. Car might be gone forever, or it might randomly re-appear one day. (With it's trunk missing or something if another bug also happens.)

    The car can reappear if you lose it? That's awesome, I didn't know that.

    +1 to knowledge of crazy game mechanics.

    EDIT: What about if it's lost on the world map? (I seem to recall you could lose it this way if it ran out of gas, or if you just ran off the screen, depending on the encounter type)

    Yeah, the car teleporting away somewhere (the Sun, perhaps? Hammerspace? Instant Transmission dimension?) and you being on foot the instant it runs out of gas... Wonderful bug. Just had that one happen to me, wasted hours of play because of not saving.

    Ordinarily if you run off the map in a random encounter and the car is there, you automatically drive off in the car. Not sure actually what happens if Car Outta Juice at that moment. Haven't even wanted to try, my car always has extra fuel cells or I ain't drivin'.

    It might be at the chop shop in New Reno, T-Ray's boys will steal it after you leave the entrance map without the car. With a high perception you can follow the trail, or talk to Jules about it (Black dude in a red jumper).

    Oh wow, my bad, didn't pay enough attention to what you had said. Yeah, if you left the car on the first New Reno map that opens then it can be stolen if you leave the car there and exit the map. Hopefully that is what had happened.

    When you enter New Reno for the first time, your car is automatically stolen. Talk to Jules right next to the parking lot. He won't want to talk, but he can be "convinced".

    Could the modders make Jules white? It's kind of ridiculously racist to have the only significant black character selling drugs.

    Then I'm voting for a black Renesco. It's racist to have white character selling most dangerous and poisoned drugs. :roll:

    Jagged Jimmy J is peddling drugs in front of the Jungle Gym...he's black, and don't forget T-Ray and his re-birthing operation over at the Chop Shop. I always thought black people only made a living from drug dealing or stealing cars, that's what watching 'The Wire' taught me. :P

    Just make the Wright family black, that should offer a better variety. No need to keep blacks poor and whites rich after the apocalypse.

    Not quite. You have to leave without the car. It isn't automatically stolen until then. Important distinction imo.

    What mod from the RP changed the posters in the game to... well... ones I would rather not look at?

    @Endocore
    Thanks for your continual fine tooth combing of the game!

    @everyone
    New year release for the RP sounds more reasonable with my current schedule. I did say end of year/early January, so I haven't deviated yet... :D

    It was part to of the overall map atmosphere improvements that Pixote brought in. I know that he had gone through the maps (after initially modifying them) and made the number of posters less abundant. I'll have to look through it one more time and see if there are still too many.

    Yeah, I remember reading something about that timetable.....last year. But, I'm not complaining. I happy. See.... :mrgreen:

    These finishing touches will be the greatest thing to happen since the game was released. This will be, in fact, what the original devs intended and what the original game should have been. Your work is greatly appreciated and the filled out events of the RP should become canon Fallout lore. Thank you! :clap:

    lol, I never noticed that before. Good old [probably unintended but still hilarious] racism.

    Sssshhh, we don't talk about the past. :wink:

    Sigh, I suppose my credibility has gone out the window. Do know that while deadlines may pass, I don't leave things half done. I get to everything eventually.
