The Lone Wanderer.

A young man who has seen so much in so little a time. He was only nineteen when he left his home, vault 101, in search of his missing father. He trekked the Capital Wasteland in search of him, gunning down raiders, super mutants and all other sorts of abominations to finish what his dad has started and bring back life giving water to the Capital Wasteland. Now, ten years later, he is thrown into a whole new world to explore. A world where humans are pets and horses can talk.

This is going to be a loooong day.

Not bad, my friend. I cannot wait to see the shenanigannery that will no doubt ensue later with the whole "Holy horseapples, that human's talking!" thing.

As a side note, I did notice a slight grammatical mishap in one sentence:

...that he had gotten it along with...

But other than that, you did pretty well. I was a bit surprised to see an immediate rewrite, but it is your story, so do as you wish with it.

Anyhow, I eagerly await the next chapter.

Sincerely,
Hunter Redflame.

This looks great!
I'm eager for more!

There's gonna be an obvious ammo problem problem later on. Hopefully the power armor is lore accurate with its power source. Hydraulic suits shouldn't burn through a fusion powered core in a couple of minutes.

There's also going to be the obvious attempted confiscation of his technology and weapons. Call me paranoid, but I always hate those kind of scenes. Nuclear power and guns are something that Alexander should never let in anyone else's hands. Especially since he's seen what they can do to a planet.

love the story more please

Mr. Meredith was hardy man, capable of getting thrown by a deathclaw into a puddle of toxic waste and shaking it all off like it was nothing.

‘Mr. Meredith was a hardy man’ makes more sense.

Or you could say he is a hardy man

In my story, a single fusion core lasts for about three days of continuous use in power armor.

8572431
I guess that's alright. I was always with the pre Fallout 4 power armor, where they had a built in nuclear reactor that outlasted the user.

Bethesda just made the lousy fusion core excuse to make it balanced ingame, despite the lore of how they originally worked.

Very nice i really like the look of your lone wander!

8572434
you can't expected everything to be bulletproof

8572434
Well, there are such thing as retcons. But that isn't true about Power armors originally having nuclear reactors.

I personally thought the fusion cores were a reasonable enough addition. Although fusion cores were made up of nuclear energy as well.

But I can't recall many Power Armors having built in nuclear reactors in the first place, unless you are referring to CERTAIN editions or variants of Enclave armor, which kinda does (which is shown with the cooling fan on the back). But the Enclave variants aren't shown in Fallout 4.

8572454
True, but it was their intended design. In the Fallout universe, they essentially replaced tanks due to how effective they were.

I know you're trying to keep your character from being too OP, but by giving him power armor, a gatling laser, and a gauss rifle... there's no point in hiding it.

Sorry about all that. I'm just tired of how Bethesda handles the Fallout series. Whenever I look for an accurate representation of how Fallout works, I look at Fallout 1, 2, & New Vegas, since they involved most of the original devs.

The T-51 set of power armor was supposed to have a century's worth of fuel. T-51B can last up to 1000 years.

8572527
Well I looked up T-51 and their variants.

Nothing says anything about nuclear reactors (or shows anything) as far as i've seen. I think If they did, they would've have a visible cooling system similar to the certain Enclave power armors.

unless you are talking about the Microfusion Packs (at least for t-51b itself), which aren't nuclear reactors and more like those fusion cores.

8572570
Yeah, sorry. That's what I meant. The TX-28 Microfusion Pack. I said reactor because it's pretty much nuclear powered.

I think they have a shelf life of 10000 years, but it shortens depending on how fast it's being used.

8572581
Well, they did say that t-45 power armor derived energy from fuel cells and would go through them at an alarming rate. Also, the shelf life is a little over 200 years, not 10,000.

If you think about it, you only need fusion cores to make it FULLY operational. The suit can be opened without a core inserted, so where do you think the power to open it comes from?

The aforementioned 200 year nuclear energy source, of course. So maybe, the fusion cores are used to overclock the power armor, not operate it.

One of the dials on the inside of the power armor is labeled AP%.

Like in my story, I personally call it auxiliary power because it just sounds cooler. But what is the point of preexisting power armor to have that dial? To monitor the extra levels of power that the fusion core gives the suit. Without the core, you have no AP while in the suit.

So the core would be used for strenuous or advanced functions of the armor, like sprinting or jetpacks.

I'll just draw in a quote from a thread.

"The T-51b powered infantry armor is designed with the latest passive defense features for both civilian and military disturbances. The back-mounted TX-28 MicroFusion Pack generates 60,000 Watts to power the HiFlo hydraulic systems built into the frame of the suit. Made of the latest poly-laminate composite, the T-51b shell is lightweight and capable of absorbing over 2,500 Joules of kinetic impact. The 10 micron silver ablative coating can reflect laser and radiation emissions without damage to the composite subsurface."

"This is a standard power unit for powered armors. Developed by West-Tek just before the Great War, it was substantial in allowing Power Armor concept to come true. The TX-28 Micro Fusion Pack is said to be cabable of operating for roughly ten thousand years."

I was already aware about T-45D armor using energy cells. However, your character isn't wearing that. It's nice you did research though.

Also, shelf life is different than what you describe. It's the difference between letting a Duracell battery sit and do nothing, which would last around 10 years. To routinely using it, which can last maybe a few months or less depending on what it's powering. Same with the Microfusion pack. Radioactive materials can last a VERY VERY long time... if they sit and do nothing. The lifespan would be obviously reduced when the pack is actually active, of course.

If you think about it, you only need fusion cores to make it FULLY operational. The suit can be opened without a core inserted, so where do you think the power to open it comes from?

The aforementioned 200 year nuclear energy source, of course. So maybe, the fusion cores are used to overclock the power armor, not operate it.

There is literally no point in designing a power armor in that fashion. The military is all about efficiency. Why make an overclock option in the first place when you can just draw more power from the Microfusion pack, or replace the fusion core with a second Microfusion pack?

Why is there seemingly no point to the unneeded extra work to overclock the armor? It's because fusion cores shouldn't even exist. They were a gameplay mechanic thrown in so you don't beat the game in 10 hours, especially with that suit you get 20 minutes in.

One of the dials on the inside of the power armor is labeled AP%.

And? You do know this is another gameplay mechanic, right? AP% is used to measure your action points. HP% measures your health. I'm not talking about gameplay, I'm talking about lore.


There's no point arguing further though, since it can go back and forth for a while. Everyone has their own opinions on which Fallouts are good or not, and I respect that. People either really like it, or despise what Bethesda did to it. I just wished people took a moment to understand the old Fallouts before going off saying things.

Sorry for acting a bit harsh. I get cranky when I'm tired sometimes.

was there anything actually changed about this chapter?

A fresh scent wafted over Alex. A scent he has only smelled in one place. The scent of... nature. He slowly opened his eyes, finding them to be as heavy as cinder blocks. Once he pried them open them open, he could see some obvious differences.

Duplication?

The problem with that? They are more common than stimpacks, at least in my runs. I ALWAYS have over 30 of them by the time I reach diamond city, and I don't stray off the main story missions before that time too much. By the time I reach endgame, I end up with over a 100 fusion cores sitting in my pack in case I wanted to leave the game running while I go on vacation. Something went horribly wrong somewhere.

8573182
I get that.

But from a more logistic and practical standpoint, the military wouldn't allow such a design flaw to happen. They're especially not going to be able to switch fusion cores mid-fight, since you have to get out the suit to switch them. You'd also have to acknowledge that the BoS and old Enclave would've spent thousands upon thousands of fusion cores in very short amounts of time if that were the case.
To one person, it's fine. But to a whole army, that's a lot of resources being wasted.

They also present a huge vulnerability. Getting shot in the fusion core would make you explode with the force of a mini nuke. An obvious weak spot like that would've been addressed.

8573020
Less info dumps and a bit more streamlined storytelling.

8573523
Even better dude, will the next chapter be out anytime soon?

8573535
I'm just excited for this because I haven't read a good fallout crossover in a while

I mean the rewrite is good but I was expecting the second chapter.

8573538
Now, that, is a cool profile pic of Mr and Ms Lutece

Also, great story by the way. You really know how to write this game.

Hey was the super mutant he killed Fawkles?

8576525
I know but its been 10 years and super mutants do eventually transform into Behemoths.

I just think of this song when ever the MC of a story starts killing

8573957
So is this story going to continue? To me it shows promise but I don't want it to just die out like the other ones like it.

8585395
Yes, it will continue. Just give me some time.

Will do. I'm just really liking this one so far.

...I can officially say that it is taking all of my willpower to not start begging for a second chapter.in other words, you did an amazing job, keep it up.

Wow I am loving this man!!! :pinkiehappy:
Power armor, heavy firepower, everything I could ever want In a world that enslaved humans. Do
When the next AWESOME chapter?

Iffn you need an extra spark I'd go back to the sources that inspired you to make it

Out of the corner of his right eye, he could see something looking through the shrubs at him with wide dish-like eyes.

*Stares*

It was breathing so heavy and panicked he could shoot it in the dark.

*Stare intensified*

Wish it was a longer chapter but I'll deal.
