    Both of these open up with Navarro.

    The Abbey gives you the alternative way to finish to end the game without going to the Oil Rig (majority of endings have a flag that depends on you blowing up Oil Rig/ killing Horrigan so if you follow this path you'll get Myron's ending and maybe one for Gecko).

    To follow the Abbey path you have to give them the Vertibird plans + FOB from Navarro and collect the data from the mentioned computers.
    It prevents you from joining BoS and reactivating the tanker.


    The location of the Bunker is given by Elridge from Reno Arms if you get him any Gauss gun.

    Okay, thanks! Apologies for all the questions, this mod simply doesn't have great documentation and there are some outstanding bugs.

    One more: for the Cold Hearts mission to scout out the Broken Hills basement, the Megamod guide claims that the shopkeeper won't let me into her basement if I turned in Jacob and Aileen; I'll have to talk to Phil instead. I already turned in Jacob and Aileen, and Phil doesn't seem to have any unique dialog regarding this topic. Do I need to do something else?

    Not a problem, despite a few problems I had a lot of fun with MegaMod.
    Hopefully more people play it.

    The guide is referring to vanilla dialogue, but I'm not sure if it'll work after you've already busted the conspirators.

    When you get into the basement you'll have to step on majority of basement grids for it to count as scouted.

    Well, I just made it to Vault 14 from the Mariposa computer. The front door is locked, and the Megamod guide says that I was supposed to have a random encounter with a couple of dead supermutants holding the keycard to the door. I never had that encounter, and I don't feel like driving in circles on the world map until I do (if I do at all) so I'm thinking of using the save editor to give myself the key card. What's the key card's name in the save editor?

    Alternatively, can't I use the save editor to put the random encounter somewhere on the map?

    I understand the EPA is full of bugs currently.

    Is there any way to get to the NPCs there at present to recruit one (or all) of the three, even cheating it or save editing?

    The stairs and elevator are out, I understand that and the vents I can interact with but nothing yet happens.

    Thanks for any help.

    I am having issues with two things right now, other than random crashes that make me save every five minutes.

    1: Sulik's sister gives and error in the update box at the bottom left, even though the .msg and the .ini related to her is there. If I click on her, the game crashes.

    2: There is no crate for Salvatore's guns anywhere, moving on with the Cold Heart's is impossible. I don't know if it wasn't written into the code, but there is nothing to click that gives an ammo crate.

    1. Not sure why you are experiencing that one.
    2. It's on the gun stash map. Get the job. Go to the map. Grab the crate there. Return to Fence.

    If you're on the stash map, killed everybody and can't find the crate, then try to pickpocket Cold Hearts that assisted you during the fight.

    I had 1 instance that I could not replicate where one of them picked it up after the fight.
    They won't turn hostile if you fail to steal it, so you don't even have to reload after every failed attempt.

    Also had the issue. If you open the cage door and then talk to her the dialogue will open and she'll escape (you might also have to kill the slavers first).

    As soon as I touch the door, it goes into the dialgoue and crashes. How do I open the door without that happening?

    BTW, I already wiped out the slavers. hehe.

    One more thing. . .there are times when Dogmeat runs away from me to a specific place and starts barking loud. What does this mean and what do I do?

    I'm at the slaver camp and he ran next to the door and started barking. He did so in the Wanamingo Mine too.

    That error usually happens because the text file is missing. Maybe your data\text\english\dialog folder is missing rtibec7.msg? That is the name of the text file for Sulik's sister.

    As for Dogmeat, that may be something I wasn't finished adding yet that might have accidentally been triggered. Dogmeat could be trained to find certain items for the player (ammo, drugs, explosives, etc.). I wonder if part of that code is being activated?

    If it were working properly, yes. But, the player character is supposed to be able to train Dogmeat to find one type of item only. It's not supposed to happen on it's own. And, I don't think it's ready yet.

    Pretty nice mod. :)

    Too bad that there won't be any updates it seems. :(

    Is that an attempt at some reverse psychology, or something?

    From the readme that I have that is in progress:

    -Corrected a number of scripts which had incorrect/missing variables regarding Sexpert, Gigolo and Virgin (Thanks to Muttie)
    -Added story/character enhancements from Endocore
    -Asking Klint, Sulik, or Cassidy to wait will no longer corrupt saved games

    -Corrected team issues with certain caravans
    -Numerous corrections to NPCs/quests in Colly
    -Can no longer repeat the Arroyo/Umbra pact repeatedly for experience
    -Corrected Dipper's script
