auto doc


So in the new update, Caliborn goes on about how Dirk banished his soul into Lil Cal, and how ARquiusprite showed up out of nowhere and ended up getting pulled along for the ride.  And if you notice, HALF OF GAMZEE TOO.

This explains so much.

Why the game read Scratch’s sudden death as an opportunity to revive him into Lord English. (Caliborn)
Why Lord English is so muscular. (Equius)
Why Doc Scratch is so shrouded in mystery. (Equius)
Why Doc Scratch and Lord English are so vastly intelligent, unlike Caliborn. (AR, a splinter of Dirk’s soul)
Why Lord English is so mirthful and angry. (Gamzee)
Why Lord English can destroy souls. (AR, a splinter of Dirk’s soul)

Lord English even stole his name from Jake English, who in turn got his name from his Grandma Jade English, who in turn stole it from Lord English.  Paradox.

It all makes sense now.

Question time~ 8D
Has anyone played/know much about

It looks like a really good writing resource and I’m tempted to try out the free trial is all c:

Just wanted to see if any of my friends know anymore before I do. ♥

that did not take as long as i thought it would

but jesus christ, looking at scratch’s logs now is like reading one of hal’s logs in white. i cannot believe the original theory didn’t take off more. doc scratch is ar with less bro puns and more omniscience. the repetition and insistence on their good qualities, the over explanations of mundane things, the arrogance and self-assurance, the obvious delight in psychologically messing with people, the whole ‘i’m doing this for everyone’s sake, i’m not evil’, FUCK

it’s hard to pick out specific things, the above are all just general comparisons of their personalities and manner of speaking. did find a couple things in his conversation with rose though

almost had an arquius/equius moment

the sentence structure is referencing something rose said earlier, but that particular insult came out of absolutely nowhere and is incredibly ‘strider’

and of course

I’ve always thought that Doc Hudson should have had a girl, and who knows, maybe he did and Disney just never included that in any of the movie theme matter. Not knowing if they did, here’s him and my OC, Cornelia Eldorado-Hornet. Yes, they were married in my universe.

I drew a picture like this a few years ago but I think it’s time for a redraw, so here it is! I didn’t have many references for Cornelia, but I think she turned out pretty good. She is a Cadillac, but I modified her grille to look just a touch more.. feminine? It’s hard to find a look that works!

I spent a significant number of hours yesterday replaying FNV from the start, because what else do you do when you have apocalyptic-level sunburns but wander the wasteland!

I have established that Specs, my original courier, is 100% inimitable. I’ve tried to recreate her in the character generator, referencing screenshots and the Auto-Doc at The Sink, and it never gets close. Honestly? I think she’s a glitch. I can’t remember now what I intended her to look like, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t mean to walk out of Goodsprings with a blue-skinned mouth-breather. 

(Seriously, her mouth is always a little open. I can’t make that happen in the character generator for TRYING.)

Eventually I just opened the oldest save file I have with the original Specs. It’s about an hour and a half in. Still bumbling around in Goodsprings. Specs is already in hot water for theft (because I didn’t realize you couldn’t just take things!!! Doc Mitchell didn’t mind!!!) and for manslaughter (because I panicked upon being confronted and started swinging!!!) But that just became part of her story.

I just wish I could edit her stats, because I really screwed myself over that first playthrough and I’d like to screw myself over in a different way this time. Unfortunately, the save file is past the point where you get that one-time emergency reset.

(young adulthood) An awful, stupid mistake.

“You shouldn’t have said that,” Emily said softly as she dabbed at the words carved accross Tobias’s shoulders.
“It’s true. A machete is just as much a piece of technology as a holo tape or an auto doc or-“
“Well you shouldn’t have said it. The Legion is quick to punish dissidents, even if this decanus is less cruel than some.”
Tobias scowled, angling the dingy mirror in his hand to get a better look at his punishment.Honestas, Industria, Prudentia. The virtues by which a slave ought to govern themselves, carved deep into the skin to serve as Tobias’s reminder that he was a slave.
“It’s going to scar.”
“Of course it is. These fucking delusional, megalomaniacal slavers don’t believe in medicine.”
“Quiet down. They’ll hear you.”
Angry words rose in Tobias’s throat but Emily was, as usual, right. She’d been under the Legions yoke longer, knew how things worked. One of the Legionaires might overhear and there was no telling who’d bought into this Caesars insanity or who would sell them out in the hopes of some small measure of preferential treatment.
“For all their talk of technology turning men into animals, there’s certainly plenty of beastial behavior going on…”
That earned a laugh, if a small one, and the sound gave Tobias some measure of comfort. Emily’s fire hadn’t died out but it was rare that she showed it. When she did was probably one of the greatest feelings in Tobias’s life, or what little he could remember of it.
“Remember anything new?” Emily asked quietly as she rested her forehead on his shoulder.
“You’re not a telepath, are you? I was just thinking-” Another laugh, easy as a breeze on a hot afternoon. “But no, I haven’t. Everything’s still too corrupted. I think I’d need an honest-to-god terminal or something to even begin to see which parts of my memory banks can be salvaged.”
“Funny that.”
“You’re really a robot then?” She sighed. “Didn’t believe it, not at first. Thought you were delirious from the sun or hunger or something. But you are, aren’t you?”
“Tell me about it again.” Emily didn’t need to elaborate, as often as she asked to hear it. The one clear memory Tobias could access before he was woken up, the only thing in his head that wasn’t touched at all by the fog of static and error messages.
He starts off describing the cold in the air at first. Very unlike the brutal, scorching expanse of the Mojave. There’s green for miles, he says, and she gasps in wonder but he’s certain by this point it’s just become a ritual in the storytelling. She’s heard about it enough that it can’t possibly still be so incredible but Emily does it every time.
“We should go sometime?”
“To the Commonwealth?”
“Yeah. I reckon these Institute folks might have answers about where you came from, and I’d die to see the harbor in person. And that city, the big one? Diamond City?”
“There’s always the Strip? New Vegas-”
“New Vegas is glitz and neon and vice. I’ve seen New Vegas, before the Legion. Found it…wanting. Empty, ya know, like everyone’s just trying their best to forget a bad situation with enough booze or chems or whores. But the Commonwealth? That’d be something.”
“Yeah, yeah it would…”

Before you Leave

She had the tendency to jump in front of bullets meant for him without considering the consequences.

Nick sighed to himself as he glanced over in the corner. One shotgun blast to the stomach this time. She was alive, thank god for that, but out like a light. Same as she’d been for the past eight hours.

All in all, he decided, the whole thing had been his fault.

I've been thinking of getting FNV but I don't know if I should get the ultimate edition or just the base game.

haha, well you can wait for another steam sale at half price, but if you do buy it for full price, for just $10 more you get

- to lock an old homophobic asshole in a vault and steal all his gold

- to beat up a flaming ghost bear after drinking drugged out tea

- a hovering brain in a jar yelling at the courier, calling their extremities “penis shaped”

- the courier’s actual brain in a jar yelling at them, which they can also flirt with

- a homicidal toaster, a mini securitron with anxiety even worse than mine, flirty light switches, a bio research station thats…kinda kinky, and a really sweet juke box and auto doc, a talking sink, and a like… vendor thing with the most caps

- WWE mailman smackdown

There are definitely issues with each one, but overall they are definitely worth the price all in all, even at full price. You find out answers to questions you find in the vanilla game that aren’t absolutely necessary, but it is a very nice tie in. They’re also very individualistic with an underlying plot that ties them all together, ultimately leading you to the backstory of Courier 6 without… railroading? it? i guess? like you can still have a backstory you can make up for rping purposes, but it adds to it.

if you’re coming from fo4 being your first game its…i can’t even tell you what was notable about far harbor or nukaworld except… they were pretty? Nothing resonated with me at all, nothing stuck out in any way except “oooOOoo shiny fancy environments!” Those are the only 2 DLCs worth mentioning, and together they’re priced at about $50 vs NV full dlc at $10 (if you get the Ultimate edition).

Idk, I think it’s worth it but it also depends what kind of person you are and what you’re into I guess, but at the very least the DLC are good cheap ways to have fun!

mistajeff-blog  asked:

Thanks for the response, Josh. To clarify, my question about the Legion being "meant" to fail was specifically in regards to the state of Caesar and the Legion that we see at the time of the game. Was Sallow still shooting from the hip or had he developed a grand, long-term vision of synthesis with NCR that extended beyond the demise of the Legion? He didn't seem to take his own rules very seriously-- he keeps an Auto-Doc in his tent despite his own ban on advanced medicine and technology.

What he tells the Courier in F:NV suggests that he did have a long-term vision that involved the Legion acting as the military arm of the NCR, without the R, i.e. as an empire.  He sees Tandi as the most effective NCR leader in large part because she was so powerful and stayed in power for so long.

Caesar absolutely has different standards for himself than for the Legion.  This is pretty common for strict and powerful leaders.  Even when he was young, Edward Sallow considered himself above/apart from the other Followers of the Apocalypse.  The rules apply to everyone else, only to him when it’s suitable.


Old World Blues

“In the years before the Great War, Big Mountain had been the home to the brightest minds of the 21st century. Scientists of vision were drawn to the facility to tackle the greatest technological challenges of the era. They sought to create a new world, fueled by technology, for the benefit of all mankind. Sonic emitters, space age alloys, DNA hybridization, force field particle research, Auto-Doc advances in cranial, cardiac, and trauma surgery… the hopes and dreams of a century became realities in the electronic forces of Big Mountain. The nucleus of this research was the Dome, a huge stone facility that held the labs of every science known to man. It was a think tank where no problem could not be solved, where no question could not be answered. The Great War brought a new energy to Big Mountain and its scientists. Although sheltered from the frontlines, the scientists waged their own war, fighting their battles at the atomic level. Equations and calculations marched endlessly across chalkboards and computer terminals toward one solution: Winning the war. For years, the minds and computers of Big Mountain were a blaze of trajectories, weapon schematics, and nuclear theories. The problems began to outplace the solutions, first geometrically, then exponentially. As the war escalated, so did the questions. On the night of October 23, 2077, the scientists received an answer that put all their questions to rest. In the aftermath, Big Mountain’s silent experiments went to sleep, their creators slowly dying in the new world that had been left behind. And the great stone in the middle of the Big Empty lay untouched, filled with countless technological wonders… Wonders that, in the end, had been answers to the wrong question.”

  • If anyone out there is a doctor or training to be a doctor or dentist you could be the one. You could be the one to free our descendants from having to pay exorbitant ransom for their lives like we do every time we need medical treatment. Pay attention to everything you do at your job and what references you use and actions and how they could be automated to allow people to treat themselves with an auto doc. Destroy your "profession" for the freedom of and strength and continuation of humanity. So that we may all be doctors again as we were evolved to be. Think about it, no one dying on the way to the hospital, nonone contracting diseases at hospital, no doctors being fatigued and jaded, if grandma is sick you use the auto doc's instruments to read her conditions, and intelligent animated instructions that can tell you if you are about to make a mistake. The same goes with all other specialized professions. Absolute rubbish! We can do anything with a database of knowledge and instructions. Specialization is slavery! You may be bored with life and will always be because of specialization. We need to grow our intellect, learn many more things and have to know nothing, our destiny is to become time lords.
