Yes, I had a problem traveling from San Francisco in the car. If I clicked on Navarro, the car would go straight north and stop at the water. I couldn't drive to SF from Navarro earlier. The car stopped in the desert. I walked the roundabout way to SF and the car seemed to go with me. I was able to drive the car to some towns but not others. I was nearly done with the game by then so it didn't matter much. You aren't out of gas, are you?

Can't you keep going toward Navarro?

I'm not using the car. When I click on Navarro the green triangle sticks just outside of SF. When I'm on the mapscreen I can't unstick that spot. I have to go to the right edge to get the map screen again but still can't get to Navarro.

Later: After many tries I got to Navarro by hop-skipping all over the map to try to approach from different angles. Couldn't get there from any desert spot either - had to be from a town. Weird.

You have worse problems that I had, I hope you are about to get on the boat and don't have to travel much more.

I had a lot of trouble travelling from SF, too

Actually, midway through the game the car travel seemed very buggy for a while, then it straightened out again. At one point I even lost the car somewhere in the desert because the travel was so erratic I didn't realize I had run out of gas along the way and had somehow walked on.

Edit: This game sure is a lot easier when you know what you're doing. With just my pals Cassidy, Sulik and Vic, properly armed and armoured, this game is going much faster. This time I found a Pancor Jackhammer quite early on and Cassidy has been a holy terror ever since, though it's best to stay out of his way. Vic is actually not half-bad with a good pistol. I think I'll keep him for the rest of the game this time.

I figured out why it is so difficult to travel to SF or Navarro from certain points: You cannot travel over water! On the map you have to hop to another point that lines up with eiher place before you can get to it.

But it's so hard to line up properly. I'm having the same trouble in my current game. This time, though, I have the properly souped-up car and can travel long distances without having to refuel, which is handy.

The only way to line up with SF is to approach it from the SE. For some reason you cannot cross that bay/delta on the right of SF. The best approach is to go to the military base then 3 squares to left then on to SF. Getting out of SF is the reverse of this. To get to Navarro from SF you have to first get past the SF bay then to another point that will allow a straight line (as the crow flies) to Navarro. Took lots of frustrating "training flights" to figure this out. Anyway it doesn't seem to be a game glitch.

Rowan, so glad you figured that out. I did a lot of walking I could have avoided if I just found the right angle to avoid water. I guess I expected the car to teleport. Good to know it is not a bug. I tried it and I can drive to all the cities now.

The really humiliating thing, Pokey, is the fact that the game won't let me walk on water. lol

Bejeebers, why not! grin You should have waved your magic wand. I could figure out that I couldn't walk on water but didn't assume that the car couldn't drive on it either. blush

Hmph. You'd think you could drive along the coast, though. Actually, I have had a few high-experience "encounters" right on the beach, so skirting the edges isn't such a bad thing to do.

Okay, I think I've run into a major problem. In New Reno, I've just talked to Myron and delivered the message to Ramirez at the Stables. When I travel back to New Reno, my PE drops from 8 to 4, and my CHA drops from 6 to 4. It seems to be a permanent stat drop, as I've tried resting and that doesn't help -- and it happens every time I travel out of the Stables.

I can't see any reason for this happening. It's a huge problem, of course, and I have no idea what causes it or how to make it stop. Any ideas what might be causing this?


...Never mind. I forgot I'd tried a Mentat. Which just goes to show, boys and girls, that we should just say, "No," to drugs. grin

Actually, in this game my character has used more stims than in the last game because I'm using her as the primary fighter instead of letting my party members take all the pain. Unfortunately, I am now at the point where the very next stim will give me the undesirable "Addict" trait.

Soon as I finish up here in New Reno I'll be off to rehab.

I do use use those, but even with a Doctor skill of 125% and a Doctor's bag, I only get 4-10 points of healing per use, so it isn't much use for major healing after a tough fight. I do the rest, then heal, then rest again technique, but it gets to the point where I feel that's all I'm doing after a while.

Things should be looking up combat-wise, though. I have a Laser Rifle, and I just picked the Tag perk for Energy Weapons, which immediately took my Energy Weapon skill from 70% to 135% or thereabouts. That should be enough to take on most enemies for the next little while.

Off to the desert for some random encounters.

Edit...I've jut discovered that I didn't finish the Military Base in my last game. But, is there ever a lot of cool stuff down here. And I've leveled up twice!

I've also discovered that in the random encounters near the side of a cliff, you can actually go down into the caves! I missed many experience points, I guess. The last one was full of Deathclaws.

Does anyone know if thre is a way to save the colony living in Vault 13?

Finished the game. I missed a lot, too, hagatha, and I never did get some of the big stats as you did. However, I managed to get throgh it and had fun. Next I'm going to try Fallout 1 which I bought at the same time as this game. Unless I can get Sacred 2 to play for me. smashpc

I really must get Fallout 1 as well. I can barely remember it, or even if I ever finished it. I haven't been a fan of turn-based combat in the past but I'm warming up to it. It takes a lot more strategy and planning, and your character build is much more important, I think.

I'm back in Navarro, this time blazing a path through the various baddies with my Energy Weapon skill up at 190%. I think that will do for that skill, now.

The trouble with Navarro is that this is around the point in the game where you start to get the really good stuuf, and the game is actually nearly over.

I might try some further devilry, such as wiping out the slavers in Vault City, just for fun, though if it costs me too many Karma points I might reconsider. Also, once I've got my hands on a set of Power Armour for all three of my henchmen, I'll be cruising the desert around the coast near Navarre. I love running into those Enclave Patrols, though they are tough.

There are a few other people I'd like to have a word with, too...

Hagatha, did you find any use for the outdoorsman skill? The only points I put into it was whenever I found a book but I don't recall ever actually using it. I also never gambled.
