    I see.
    I just realized that the NCR doesn't seem to use any artillery. Which is strange, because muzzle-loaded artillery was invented waay before the industrial revolution. And solid-fuel rocket artillery may be a bit more complicated to make, but somewhat easier to launch. Ergo: Why the NCR didn't harass the hell out of the Legion with artillery during the stalemate is a mystery. (Because you don't need barrages for that. Just a random shot every now and then will turn any nerves into jelly.) Especially since a howitzer can be seen from the NCR side (and one should assume that it's a matter of time before the Legion get it into working condition), the NCR has anti-aircraft pieces that probably can be used for ground-ground attacks and the Boomers are shelling anyone within range like there's no tomorrow. (The Boomers are neutral xenophobes. But one can't assume that they found the only cache of pieces and shells in the west.)

    Well Baya is right they buy weapons from the Gun Runners which is pretty retarded considering the exponential growth of their territory also: do they have ways to transport heavy artillery? I mean mechanical units for transport

    If the NCR deployed howitzers anywhere around the dam then it'd be captured or disabled by Legion Frumentarii or one of their raiding parties.

    Youre giving too much credit to the Legion, they cant even raid the Helios One or get a decisive victory at Forlorn Hope let alone succesfully raid the most fortified point in Nevada, I think the major issue is the transportation.

    Are you kidding me? They're outnumbered and outgunned. The fact that they're able to keep a single stronghold across the river is amazing.

    Their regular army is in shambles and they think they can restore their control over Hoover Dam with Howitzers?

    This is what Independent New Vegas needs for protection, I doubt the NCR and much less the Legion has the knowledge and resources to perform an Orbital Strike

    Oh, come on. New Vegas needs exactly what I gave it: The nuking of the Long 15 and Dry Wells. In all but one of the endings the NCR and its citizens make a dash for the border via the Long 15. Just imaging all those loyal to the NCR dying of radiation poising before they reach their blessed homeland makes me happy. Regardless, a wall of radiation will protect New Vegas. The gate through Zion and the east is still open so trade isn't too much of a problem.

    But it's all good. Though it would probably be smarter to use Helios as a bargaining chip by using it to power the NCR and other territories. It's just that you can only use Helios once a day and there are better superweapons in the Fallout universe.

    California's been done to death. To be honest, I don't care where it is as long as it's not at a location that's already been done.

    Whatever they do I hope Obsidian have learnt their lesson and leave the development of the game engine and scripts to someone competent.

    Fallout kind of wrote itself into a corner in terms of locations. Having been a devoted fan ofr 1 & 2, 3 seemed like... well it seemed like what it was; a Frankengame whose only real connections to the fallout universe were Vault Boy, the Vaults themselves, and like... Super Mutants, I guess. Fallout, for me anyways, will always be centralized in the american southwest. And while I'm sure if Obsidian tries to change locations again, to like New York or LA (which I would actually be interested in seeing) or what have you, they will give it the old college try... it'll just lack the soul of what I enjoy about Fallout as a franchise. My gut tells me they'll just revisit past locations though.

    And if I get to crucify another character voiced by a former cast member of Friends Imma just flip out and overlook what is sure to be an astronomical number of faults and bugs in this hypothetical game.

    Also, most of my fellow tribesmen in America are concentrated in Chicago/Illinois. :3 I guess it's too much to ask since they've already paid a great deal of homage to a particularly renowned member of my tribe.

    God, I'm such an idiot. I just realised how Caesar's Legion funds its operations. The answer was staring me right in the fucking face. The coins! They make money by using slave labour to mine for gold and silver. On top of that they make their own armour/weapons and grow their own food/medicine which means that the vast majority of all their loot is sold to merchants. They probably extort the merchants into giving them a better price, too. It's fucking ingenious, really.

    Does the very existence of libertarianism drive you mad? I know, I know. How dare they not believe in government like you do! How dare they not worship it as you do! How dare they believe that government adds to problems instead of being the ultimate solution to all problems!

    Grow the fuck up.

    I'm not to big on the Fallout lore, but I'm not sure gold and silver are feasible for American mining if the year is 2250. Maybe by smelting down salvaged jewelry they found or some other form of plundering.

    Perhaps. I'm certain that they use slaves to gather raw materials, though. Remember the story Boone told about his wife? If I remember correctly there were hundreds of slaves being gathered at the Cove. Caesar's Legion paid one thousand and five hundred caps (a small fortune) for her and no doubt paid quite a lot for the other slaves as well. Yet there's less than half a dozen slaves at the Fort. Meaning the slaves being gathered were sent into Legion territories. I think the industrial tools at the Fort aren't for making weapons/armour but repairing them. Once again, the Legion is self-sufficient so even if it can't mine gold/silver it can still provide enough for itself to make a killing off of its pillaging.

    Just once I'd like to see a game in Minneapolis. Such a nice city. Not too big, not too small.
