What's with all these teddy bears? I keep picking them up whenever I stumble upon them just in case they have some future use. Actually, to be honest, I keep picking them up because I am a fool for teddy bears and can't stand to see them abandoned. Kay

They make good ammunition... evil Really, there is a home made gun you can make if you buy or find the blue prints that shoots just about anything, including Teddy Bears.

How terrible. I will take all my teddy bears and give them a good home .......... until I have a home made gun and don't have anything else to shoot. Then they are toast. Kay

Kay, take them home and use them to decorate your house. I have a lot of them as well as Nuka-Cola trucks, lunchboxes, Lincoln artifacts and other assorted items. You can put them on the wooden shelves by your stairs by dropping them and then Using Z to pick them up and place them. There are some interesting toys in the Arlington Library. I also have garden gnomes both inside and out.

I can't stand the dirty mattress in my megaton house so I cover it with Teddy Bears and Nuka-Cola trucks. I suspect if I bought a house theme it might include bed linen and covers BUT I like to decorating my house myself. Wish I could buy a rug.

I use a lot of pool balls in my decorating as well as things that Pokey mentioned. I can't wait to get a 100 in a couple skills so I can use some skill books around the house too.

I set up the little table outside myside my house with a gnome in the chair and a plate full of kabobs, a bowl of soup and lots of bottled beverages. Jericho comes and stands around and looks longingly at it and growls at me for having the good karma...I think he's jealous of all the gifts I get from a certain citizen.

I am liking this more and more. Now that I have my own home so Dogmeat and I have a place to go.

Pokey, I will try the drop on floor and then use Z to pick them up. They are currently in a locker with a lot of other stuff and are probably very uncomfortable.

Nipomo, thank you for the other decorating tips. I have been so relieved to have my own place to sleep that I have only now begun to think about spiffing it up.

And Dogmeat doesn't care what it looks like. But I think my robot would like a nicer place.

The decorating is a fun goof around when you just have a short amount of time to play or need a break. Just be sure and save every time you get something placed right as its a tricky buisness. You can read back some pages where people talk more about it. I like putting at least one of most everything somewhere sensiable in my house, some things look lame so I just don't bother. Got to say it makes coming home to rest or get ready to trade alot more fun to have the house all tricked out.

You can make a spot for dogmeat between the work bench you can buy and the bobble-head show-off stand. I put a bowl of squirrel stew and a dog bowl full of crab cakes out for him as well as a wooden box from the kitchen that I placed against the wall in back of his food and filled it with baseballs for him to play with.

If you practice and save alot its fun to do stuff like that. Its good to take a look at U-tube and see where stuff you might want to buy (not the house themes but the other items) go and not put anything in those spots. Also you'll notice the floor in some spots doesn't hold stuff when you drop it out of your inventory, it might be on the floor below or just gone...(another good reason to save) so just learn the good floor spots to dump and then carry the item upstairs or where ever you want it. I haven't noticed that when you place an item it falls through anywhere just when you dump out of your inventory.

One of the fun things I did was put some milk bottles on the top of my frig...only use I ever found for them and they look cool up there.

Holly Molly Rocky, flying teddy bears and trucks. It is going to take some practice to drop, hit Z and place items. But I have a lot of time. kay

No, this Dogmeat is the real thing (flesh and blood) but new and improved. You can tell him to just stay here and he does and I am finding that "stay here" is often the best thing for Dogmeat to do. But there is something very comforting about having Dogmeat around. He actually wants to be with me and acts like he does. Not so many other people do yet.

So how to find him? Actaully he found me as I was doing a Megaton/Moria quest at the Minefield. He just showed up but I think if you want to find him he is around the Scrapyard just south of the Minefield. kay

I tried to keep Dogmeat in my house after I took him out in a few excursions and he didn't do too well. All was well until late in the game when I was in the midst of a firefight in DC, he suddenly popped up and attacked the powerfully armed enemy. He didn't last long. I could have reloaded, but it had been a while since I saved and it had been a tough section, so I left him. I believe this is a bug in the game.

Dogmeat looks like a German Shepard mix with ? mutt. They will not do well shut up staying at home. They need a lot of exercise. I am surprised that Dogmeat didn't pull your whole house apart. But, of course, this is a game and he may not have been programmed to do that.

I think from playing Fallout 1 that Dogmeat is a fun friend to find early in the game and have around but not the very best companion. I am enjoying him while I can. When I hiked up north to deliver a letter on the "Blood Ties"? quest, he was great with killer bees and feral dogs. He is also a great early warning system in other places. Just before he gets killed and I get upset and reload and try again.

But I know that Dogmeat does not understand his limits and can only be let out every once in a while. The same goes for me but I have to do it all. poor kay

I haven't played in 3-4 days now BUT will soon. I'm all set to start going back to my old vault 101 because my "girlfriend" has put out a radio message for me. She sounds desperate so I'll just wait to do some odds and ends I was planning to take care of later. Hope its not like real life were I totally forget what I was up to if I don't do it right away.

Hi guys! I am devastated about two things where I can`t understand how can I be so stupid!! I have been "selling" my stuff to Gob (at Moriarty`s) and to Jenny Stahl and just realized that was giving it away, for they only sale!!! don`t know how many thousands of caps lost over the past few months. The second one is that I am "very evil"!! Cannot believe it. Have been so nice to everybody, never killed a good guy and only stole a few things here and there!! Enough to make me very evil? not fair!! do not have enough pure water to regain karma, what can I do???

You can gain back karma by donating scrap metal to the guy at the water treatment plant in Megaton. When you offer him the scrap metal you get a choice of choosing payment or just giving. Giving=karma. I would think that anytime you are faced with a choice of working for money or doing it for free you get karma as a reward. Not sure about all cases though. Solving some of the side quests gives you karma as well. I know that losing all that money is disappointing right now but eventually you will be so rich that you will not even be picking up many valuable items. Have you tried donating to the atom church in Megaton. I never did but it probably leads to karma. But right now you are in a pickle deciding what you needs most, the cash or the karma. Good luck.

Also there is a church in Rivet City you can donate to.

I have been asking my house robot for clean water whenever his condensers get charged (maybe about every 2 weeks in the game) and then stock piling it in the frig. I want to do some of the neutral/evil quests and then be able to boost myself back up to good by giving those poor beggars water when those quests are over.

When I steal I keep an eye on my karma and when it gets nuetral or bad I stop stealing till it builds up again. I'm basicly playing good but I want to do all the quests so I'll get as evil as needed for those.

I just found a huge Talon company stronghold and have been useing lots of different weapons and tactics to take them all out with a good amount of reward in loot. I sneak off when I'm full and go stash it in my house and then come back to continue my sweep...I'm not fond of those talon guys! I plan to have a big loot sale when I'm done and buy me some much needed supplies.

I kinda wonder if I'll really be able to do the evil quests.

You guys..... talk about the game as if it were so easy..... I do not understand, went down from easy to very easy, I am barely finishing Moira quest on my way to Rivet City and have 3 stupid super mutants trying to kill me from a bridge where I cannot reach them, no even with missiles. They keep killing me and do not even have enough money to buy stimpacks, which is all I spend my money on, seems like it, but had to used them when 5 Talon guys tried to kill me. One had a missile launcher, and another one a flamer, which reminds me, I cannot use mine, not even after I fixed it. Do I need a certain level for it? I think I will go back to simpler quests (like Lucy`s) and come back when I have meaner guns. Ahhh!!! Love it and hate it.

Fallout 3 is set up so you can walk in to places that are too tough to handle so you have to bug out or start from a earlier save and sneak around to find something easier to handle.

Do you have a sniper rifle? That is good for mutants at a distance. If you land one or two shots from the sniper rifle and then pop behind some cover and take who ever ventures forth out with a combat shotgun at close range, that usally works pretty good. Sometimes when you pop behind cover after a bit you will be "hidden" again and can take some more sniper shots. With the sniper rifle it shoots high over distance so I always use the sight and aim right in the middle of the bad guy at about shoulder hieght or a tad lower. I hate to miss and alert everyone to my position.

I cann't think why the flamer doesn't work for you...how is your big gun skill? do you have ammo? Level doesn't determine if you can use a weapon but your amount of skill is a big factor.

I am moving on. Been to the Citadel. Now to Vault 89 (or whatever one) to find a GEEK.

I now have a 44 Magnum, a plasma rifle, and a combat and sawed off shot gun. Still don't have a sniper rifle so I am hanging onto my hunting rifle. This is still too many weapons but it is a lot fewer than I had. It is such a relief to me when I can get down to a few weapons and a few types of ammo. Life becomes much simplier.

Dogmeat. I thought I had lost Dogmeat at the Jefferson Memorial. I told him to "wait for me" when I went into the tunnel to flush the place out. Then, of course, the Enclave arrived and all hell broke loose. I just decided Dogmeat was not my top priority. But later on in the game I got a message that Dogmeat was at Vault 101. And yes he was so I took him back to Megaton. Dogmeat will not be going with me on many quests. But I do know he can find his way home.

I love this game.

Kay, you can probably get rid of the sawed off shotgun. It isn't as powerful as the combat shotgun. I never used my shotgun though I carried it nearly the whole game.

That is exactly where I lost Dogmeat. I didn't get the chance to send him home. He just suddenly appeared and ran after the Enclave soldiers in the tunnel and died quickly.

I have something unique called the Terriable Shotgun. Its very powerful at close range (lousy at anything else and needs repair often)and holds 12 rounds. Its lovely if you get caught out and have a bad guy in your face.

I got this gun by reading The Vault website about an area I had just spent a couple of days on and wanted to see if I had missed anything important. They said you could kill this guy and get his shotgun OR you could pickpocket all his shotgun ammo, go out the door and come back in and he would have put his empty shotgun in his inventory where you could try and reverse pickpocket in a simular wieght weapon and pickpocket out his unique shotgun. I hate killing guys I don't have to and this sounded sneaky and fun so I did it. I think it took me two or three times to get it to work so save a bunch.

Even though this weapon makes 5 guns I carry, I can't put it down, its just too good when I get in trouble. I carry the sniper rifle, the Lincoln repeater, the combat shot gun, the unique chinnese assult gun and the Terriable Shotgun. I need to get rid of something but I still haven't decieded what yet. This is mostly for the wasteland, I haven't gone downtown much yet though I will soon as I have a couple of quests that point that way next.

The Chinese assault gun is the one I used nearly all the time. Effective, easy to find ammo for, and easy to repair. Later I used the plasma rifle a lot.

Hi guys, thx Nipomo, I just leveled up and put a whole bunch of points in big guns. Now I can use the flammer. But guess what? As much as I enjoyed using it, weights too much, so I sold it. I am now using the minigun, the 10 mm whatever machine gun and the combat shot gun and the missile launcher. I only have 210 pounds to carry which is nothing. So next time I level up, how can I increase my strength? I am on my way to Jefferson Memorial, seems like I´ve done too many side quests and not enough for the main quest, so no I am doing the GNR quest... all by myself, no Steel Brothers with me... but will keep going.. love this game.. still no Dogmeat.
