    I recently tried installing the Pipboy-2500 mod but I found it far too buggy for my liking, so I installed a similar mod, the Pipboy-3500, and I'm wondering whether it's lore friendly.

    It's not too much of a stretch that Vault 21, a vault in very close proximity to House (who is the CEO of RobCo, manufacturer of the PipBoy's) would receive the most modern version of the Pipboy before anyone else.

    You also can't really tell how thick it is, it could be as thick as the 2000 for all we know.

    Technology wise I think it's mainly fine other than the buttons(which don't look very Fallout) and the wires, but they can be explained somewhat, we know wires exist in the Fallout universe, but were obviously not that wide spread (We see a unique Vault 22 Laser Rifle, which has wires on it), and maybe the wires did get that small, or maybe it was a prototype for the 3500 series.

    But then again this is just me trying to justify using a cool looking Pip-Boy, I want to know whether you guys think this is lore friendly or not.

    Though what annoys me about handheld Pip-Boys is that HOW can they check your health? I mean, if it didn't have the 'STATUS' area, then sure. Also the wires look.. I don't know. I'd prefer it without wires.
