All of the Madre's and Villa's conveniences were supplied by machines tied to the casino.

Sierra Madre vending machines are pre-War devices apparently developed at the Big Empty that dispense and redeem numerous items in exchange for Sierra Madre chips. They can be found throughout the Sierra Madre, and one is found in Elijah's quarters in the Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker.

Background

Where the Vending Machine technology came from is unknown. While they take Sierra Madre Chips, they seem to supply a number of non-commercial services.

Dead Money loading screen

A revolutionary pre-war technology that never achieved much commercial success outside the occasional World Fair or the Sierra Madre. The vending machine is in fact a self-contained matter transformation device. It can recreate any item (limited by the templates stored in its memory) by using Sierra Madre chips as a battery and source of raw material for the created goods. It can also take any dispensed items and transform them back into Sierra Madre chips. Selection is made through a holographic interface that displays the item being purchased.

The machine demonstrates something astounding about pre-War civilization. As the chips are not some form of nanotech feedstock, but simple alloys of common and fissionable elements (see Coin Operator), the machines use nuclear fission/fusion to process this material not only into tools, but edible food and even prescription chems. They demonstrate that civilization was on the cusp of unimaginable prosperity when the bombs fell: a truly great height from which to fall.

Characteristics

Sierra Madre Vending Machines initially offer only food, cigarettes, doctor's bags and the chance to redeem cigarettes for chips. However, scattered throughout the Sierra Madre are special holotapes that enable the vending machines to dispense more useful items in quantities limited only by the Courier's supply of chips.

Notes

  • The codes for making alcohol do not work on vending machines outside of the casino area (this includes the Vending machine in the Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker.
  • For every item you return, you'll receive +1 in "Crafted Items" counter.
  • The Sierra Madre vending machine will not accept returns of sexy sleepwear, Pre-War bonnets and baseball caps, or pre-War businesswear, despite these items being commonly found alongside other, returnable articles of clothing.
  • Even though it was the researchers in Big MT. who created these machines, they are nowhere to be found in Old World Blues. They are talked about on a terminal outside the Y-0 facility which means that they were lost in the destruction of the facility.
  • The only pre-war food item that is not dispensed by the vending machine is Cram. The likely reason for this is it would allow the player to make mass quantities of Caravan lunches.

Appearances

The Sierra Madre vending machine appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Dead Money.

Bugs

  • xbox360Icon xbox360 ps3Icon ps3 pcIcon pc The "Return Outfit Item" vending machine code includes an option to return Fedoras for chips. The Fedora is a "non-playable" article of clothing, meaning it cannot normally be obtained, and furthermore does not appear anywhere within Dead Money.
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 ps3Icon ps3 pcIcon pc Returning any pre-War outfit while wearing it will give you a permanent Agility bonus. The bonus can be stacked far beyond 10 Agility and though it stops increasing related skills and AP, weapon draw/holster and reload speed will continue to increase. While running some guns may glitch during the holster animation due to the speed of the animation causing the gun to glitch inside the player usually leaving the gun sticking out of the player's shoulder. The gun will return to normal if you draw and holster again while staying still or if you reequip the weapon.
    • NOTE: Even though the glitch will increase the Agility to max, the Agility stats will remain the same in SPECIAL due to clothes that are wear items giving that extra bonus of skill. This attribute is not working as an implant.
