So, trying to play FO3 this afternoon; get my companions mod lined out so I can tackle the other set of saves and see whether the Nos' Adventures game is recoverable.
I've gotten in around an hour of play, had four random crashes... and now the game won't let me back out of my Springvale "Survivalist House" into the wasteland.
I am now forcibly reminded why I hated FO3 with a passion and was quick to jump ship to NV, never looking back.
And, to top things off the categorized containers that I've gotten such wonderful utility out of in Oblivion and FNV? Yeah, they don't work at all. FO3 won't let me remote-activate a container at all, whether it's in the same cell as me or not. As well, the 'stay close' option that I've been using in NV to keep one of the girls with me during combat while the other two roam free? It doesn't work either. Apparently, the "continue during combat" flag is just there for decoration. Either that, or the game is refusing to allow any updates to the plugin without clean saving first; which gets real old real quick.
Wonder if anyone would notice if I spiked what's left of my Rockstar with Stolichnaya...
