I’ve updated the New Vegas version of my Lil Macintosh mod. It introduces a few changes, and the addition of fully-voiced audio courtesy of Radiohooves (who is working on the radio adaptation of Fallout: Equestria) and Hannah May (who did the voice work).

Fallout Confessions

Oh wow, this made me look up an abandoned part of an RAF base I grew up near to. Let me tell you a story…
While I didn’t grow up in a Desert, I once explored a disused part of the Royal Air Force base near where I lived. We (as in my friends and I, all about 15 at the time) found it on accident at first through wandering in the woods. We explored it, looking at the buildings that were all around, disused.

(pictures gathered from the internet)
We were later spotted by a lone security officer and asked, politely, to leave. I reckon he saw that we meant no harm, and weren’t vandals, so he didn’t go crazy about us being there. We all went home that night, and I told my parents about it. As it turned out, people knew it was there, it wasn’t a secret, it just wasn’t visited or spoken about often - why would anybody need to?
This place had several buildings I knew not the purpose of, and a massive hospital built out of bricks. Windows had been smashed over the years, and some had been boarded up in some futile attempt to keep people out.

I explored one of the buildings, and as luck would have it, I found a picture of the very building I went inside (above). the interior was bare, and smelled of tons of dust. It was incredibly eerie being inside the building, but also very interesting.

The hospital itself, we never went inside, at the time, it was boarded up the most, and we weren’t exactly up for ripping a board off to poke around. We were still at the age where trouble with the police meant very bad things from our parents, and there were a few security patrols that wandered around the area due to the proximity to the ‘live’ parts of the base.

It kind of surprises me, and shocks me to be honest, that the hospital wasn’t spoken much about in my family, not until I brought it up to my parents out of curiosity. I learned that I was born there. To return to the place where my life began, and see it disused, abandoned, and falling apart as the grass is left to grow tall around it, was something that stuck with me at that age. The hospital, and the buildings around it, were closed in 1995, it’s mind boggling to remember seeing how quickly nature took over the place and made it look like it had been abandoned longer than that.
Even if I wanted to go inside that hospital now, after all these years, I cannot. Because, as it turns out, the place was demolished in 2008 for a new housing project. Not too long after I moved away, as if my being in the area was the last thing keeping it tethered to this plane of existence.
My place of birth is no more, now. I do not share that fact with my siblings, who were all born in other, still-active hospitals. It really puts into perspective how nothing will last forever, how even the site of something as incredible as one’s own birth can also become symbolic to one’s inevitable death, decay, and erasure from existence. Sure, there is always historic records like the ones I’ve dug up for this post, but even the records will fall victim to time and be lost forever. Moreover, it is not the same as having the thing still be physically there.

“I’ve made 2 female characters that I continuously go back to in both Fo3 and NV, respectively. For Fo3 she has short brown hair, always wears the Armoured Vault Suit and her primary weapon is a Scoped .44 Magnum and the Chinese Assault rifle.
My FNV female has short black hair and the NCR 1st Recon Beret (the only way I can emulate black and red striped hair), always wears Vault Security Armour and Authority Glasses or Sunglasses and her primary weapons are the Euclid Range Finder, Riot shotgun and the Police Baton. When my body parts were swapped in Old World Blues I kept the augmented spine but took my brain and heart back.
Props to whoever gets the references. You deserve cookies and a “fist bump” of a special variety.”
Fallout Confessions

For your Fallout 3 chick, may I suggest you equip her with these? I knew exactly who you were talking about when you were describing her favourite weapons.

http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/16184

I know about and have those mods, but mentioning it would’ve given it away. just found out too that there’s actually a Chinese Incendiary pistol in the vanilla game that was probably what inspired the Zebra Rifle. I found out about it AFTER I posted the thing… AND I SPENT 200 HOURS IN THAT GAME

I think I’ve sunk about 1000 hours actually playing the game, and about 500 hours modding it and making it work.
I hope you got the latest version of Lil Macintosh, I went through a little trouble to give the mod some proper audio for the note found in the safe. I’m still yet to update the NV port, I forgot about it.

83.3 days? Impressive! I estimate my total hours to be in the region of 750-1000, excluding time spent getting the game to work with the many mods that I install

I really wish he had some sort of story to uncover or quest to do as the game seemed to imply. Out of the entire cast, Billy Creel had a substantially better developed character and personality than a vast majority of them.

Will be updating this: http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/16096 using this image.Part of my Fallout Pip-boy mod series of pictures.The goal of the mod is to offer custom Pip-Boy textures for Fallout 3 (and New Vegas if you’re a little savvy) that feature characters from Fallout Equestria, and thus Friendship is Magic also, as a photograph attached to the Pip-boy.You will notice that Dash has been sketched onto an old paper texture, this is because I feel that that, while the characters I’ve drawn so far are alive in the ‘present’ time of the story, and as such have several ‘photo opportunities’, Dash is strictly Pre-War and a little Post-War. Nothing is known about what happened to her beyond her visiting Canterlot and fighting Gilda. No body, no confirmation, nada. Finding photos of her that are over 2 centuries old would probably be a miracle, but given the fact that so many Pegasi devote their lives to following her choice to abandon the Enclave and other Pegasi to try to help the ponies down below, her memory and image would still be passed down, meaning plenty of sketches and drawings.

Well, aside from some pictures that can already be found on my dA that I couldn’t be bothered to post here, and some OHGOD awful early drawings, and a few sketches, I think I’m done spamming pictures for now
This was a request from somebody over on the Fallout 3 Nexus mod site. Specifically, he wanted a custom version of this mod  http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/16096 using an OC he provided a reference image of. So I drew the above picture, and then scaled it onto the Pip-Boy texture and sent him everything.
