Coming up next week

Challenge 3 - Renovation Rescue

Searchlight Airport in Fallout New Vegas doesn't have a lot going for it. some inaccessible buildings, some rusted planes and a few radscorpions. For an area marked on the map one expects that there should have been more here.

Your challenge is to renovate Searchlight Airport. You may simply add content to what is there, or you may rip up everything and redesign the area from scratch with different buildings. You may choose to make it a town, a combat area, or just the outer cover of something that lies under the surface, or you may have a completely different idea.

The only restrictions are 1) It must be able to keep the same map marker name (i.e., it still must be "Searchlight Airport") and 2) It must be a more interesting place to visit than it is now.

Home viewer Contest

Here are this weeks first 3 selected Home Viewer Contest entrants for you to choose from. Please vote for your favourite, as only one will progress.

First up is Denis517 (Say, don't I know you from somewhere) with Keepin' it light, a perk designed for scouts, and other light armour users.

Zman130 would like to introduce you to The Berserkers, a group that may just redefine Hammer Time.

And Brotherhoodknightpaladin has some Changes to the crafting system he'd like to propose.

Please vote for your favourite, only 1 will progress

Want to join in?

For the home viewer contest You are to pitch us a "feature" for Fallout 4. It may be a game mechanic (like VATS), a Perk, a location or faction, or anything else you can think of. You should keep the feature independent of the overall location that Fallout 4 will be in, as that's not been announced (so factions and locations should be kept general).

You should not pitch us the whole game. Just one small thing that makes Fallout 4 different to the other titles.

Link your subbmission in the comment section of this (or any other Fallout Apprentice blog). Each week we'll highlight up to 3 entries, and let you pick the entry of the week. All entries of the week will go into a final vote at the end of the series... So get writing!

(Players in the main game may participate in the home viewer contest as well - and don't worry, I'm planning a prize for at least the winner in that too!).

Just some advice on this: This is in two parts, you have to tell us about your feature, but you also have to tell us how it makes the game different from those before it. Here's some practical examples for the suggestions given above:

  • Perks: Perks typically support a certain style of Gameplay, or enable/improve certain other things like items or other featuyres. Make sure you you're telling me what the problem is you're trying to solve - what gameplay style are you trying to support - is it a new one or has it been neglected, how does it "Solve the problem"?
  • Mechanics: This is a tricky one to give advice on, but again, tell me the problem you're trying to solve. Aimed Shots and VATS allow easier sniper play. The Perk system opens up new abilities outside of the skill system, etc.
  • Location/Faction:Easier to give advice on. Simply come up with something different to whats in the game.

NB - You must post your proposal as a blog, and link to it in the comments. If you just describe the idea in the comments, it will not be considered.

Please also include the following code at the top of your blog page:

That's all for this week - join us next week to see who will win the round, and see if you can pick who will be The Apprentice.
