Re: NVW Edit

Until Obsidian confirms this, ''it is not true.'' Nukey (talk) (blog) 07:05, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

You don't need a bunch of programers to tell what guns their using in the game when you have commom sense. - Texas Ranger 14:53, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Guns Edit

The similarities to real-world weapons have been discussed already; they aren't to be mentioned unless the gun is explicitly named exactly what it is in the real world, like the Desert Eagle .44 or the UZI. Nitty Tok. 20:30, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

And what if they're not named after their real world counterparts due to legal issues such as not purchasing the rights to use the real life name of the weapon? Ever think of that? Clearly not.
You say that because your lazy and would not know what kind of gun it is unless it's explicitly named in the name of the in-game weapon. I don't play video games alot and Fallout 3 and Bioshock are the only games I've ever played. I mostly practice with My Gun Collection and work on cars. I was firing shotguns when you were crying in your crib. Just because you don't know what a gun is since You never leave your house(except for video games) does not mean you can't mention what the gun is based on. - Some Old Southern Hillbilly 23:07, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
No, he says that because that's the rule of this wiki. It's not some arbitrary thing he made up. Kris (talk) 23:38, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
I strongly suggest you cease making implicit insults, otherwise you'll find yourself blocked rather quickly. To explain our stance on similarities between real-world guns and ingame weapons, they're quite simply irrelevant - this is a Fallout wiki, not Wikipedia. Fallout is set in alternative universe, 270 years in the future (in the case of FNV), and what real-life gun the artists chose to base the model on has no bearing on either the gun's in-universe designation nor its characteristics. For example, Fallout 3's assault rifle is similar to a variety of real-life weapons, but its ingame designation is "R91 assault rifle", not the name of whatever real-life firearm the model was based on. Additionally, if New Vegas follows the naming conventions of Fallout 3, most gun names will be generic and not include any specific model numbers.
What real gun a weapon's model is based on is material for a "behind the scenes" section at best, otherwise it has no relevance for our wiki. We used to list such similarities there, but we have ceased doing so because it just leads to gun enthusiasts warring over which real-life gun is the correct one to list, and the resulting maintenance effort outweighs the gain. -- Porter21 (talk) 23:48, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but that was "Fallout 3" In "Fallout: New Vegas, the weapons are very clearly based on real-world weaponary. Example: Look at the "9mm pistol" in Fallout: New Vegas and compare it to the Browning Hi-Power, a real world handgun designed by John Moses Browning, and you can tell the 9mm pistol design is based on the Browning HP. - Texas Ranger 00:47, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well, it's not clear yet because the names and stats that go along with the gun models we've seen haven't been revealed. With the wide array of real-life guns in the world, there's a very close visual match for just about any Fallout Universe gun; but it can't be said that any particular Fallout Universe gun was based solely on what it looks like, unless it's named the same; and even then, it's only a passing reference unless it shares similar characteristics beyond just the visual.
We can make valid assumptions for some of the stats of most of the weapons, of course, but until we're sure of the names and full statistics of a given weapon, it's mere speculation as to what it may or may not be based on. Kris (talk) 00:59, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

I've been trying to explain this clearly, but apparently with no suscuss. Let Me add to the previous example. The Browning Hi-Power is a 9mm pistol and the 9mm pistol is based on the Browning HP. I'd show you a picture below this comment, but the picture was deleted, so here is a link. [1] Enjoy! - Texas Ranger 01:07, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

I thought I had explained it well enough, but I guess not. It may look like a Browning High Power, but if it's just called a 9mm Pistol ingame, and the RoF/recoil/etc isn't comparable to the Browning High Power, then it's just a lookalike and not actually a Browning High Power. Even if the stats are similar to the real gun, if the developers don't say that it's a Browning High Power, then it's not; it's just a 9mm Pistol. Kris (talk) 01:28, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
I've found something that I thought was impossible. Somebody more stubborn than Me. If I can't convince somebody with cold, hard facts, than you deserve the "Most Stubborn Man on Earth" title. You deserve it, for I have been defeated. I guess I'll have to settle for Second Place this year. - Texas Ranger 01:48, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
On the contrary; I don't argue that it looks like a Browning High Power; I'm with you on that. But this is Obsidian's game, and if they want to call it a Smith and Wesson and have it look like a Browning, then guess what? It's a Smith and Wesson, as far as the Fallout Universe is concerned. My point is that we don't KNOW what it's called yet, we only know what it looks like. Kris (talk) 01:55, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
I not saying We call it a Browning Hi-Power, I'm just saying We should put something like, "The Design of this gun is based on the Browning Hi-Power, a popular 9mm pistol produced since World War II."

I wasn't trying to say, "Let's change the name of this file" Sorry for the misunderstanding. - Texas Ranger 02:04, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hostility Edit

Your hostility is not welcome here. Either calm down and act mature, or leave. Also, I recommend you take that Confederate flag off your page... you can keep it there if you insist, but I don't want anything starting up about racism. Nukey (talk) 23:39, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Let me tell you two things

1. The Confederate Flag is not a sign of racism. Go to places like South Carolina, Kentucky or Texas and people raise their Confederate Flags with pride. If You were from the South, You would understand that and the feeling Southerners get when they see someone who flys their flag and know what it really stands for even after everybody tryed to turn it into some evil thing.

Secondly, I'm not Hostile, I'm sarcastic. Sorry for this misunderstanding. - Texas Ranger 00:24, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Thank You Edit

Thanks for clearing this up. I'm glad to have you here, and I hope you stay! Nukey (talk) 00:37, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I've almost always had to explain myself just because of misunderstandings. - Texas Ranger 00:40, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Howdy Edit

How are you? I haven't seen you on in a while. Nukey (talk) 02:36, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

My computer crashed a while ago. I just finished reinstalling everything. - Texas Ranger 02:38, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
That's too bad. By the way, post a response on my page, or I might miss your response. Nukey (talk) 04:35, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Huh, Edit

I grew up watching Walker, Texas Ranger, , was about 5 then, 14 now, still a big fan of Chuck.

I think you should say that the guns are "Based on............" if you have'nt tried that already,

If you play Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, Look up Chuck Norris in Oblivion on Youtube, brought me back to him ya see.

Also, Home-Town= Phelps KY
