BTW, in the Slog Diner you didn't notice but the benches in the Diner all connect to the Slog's workbench cloud storage. Also that little square platform with the blue lights is supposed to have an armor dummy standing on it but sometimes it doesn't show up the first time you enter the diner due to some glitch in the vanilla game.
Say, got a question about the Rockin' Red Rocket mod. If I have a supply line to that settlement, can I access my building materials inside the player home to mod things like weapins and armor and cradt chems and explosives?
But Ox I already rebuilt the Slog Diner with that Filled food and drink shelves mod you reviewed! Ooooh no! I suppose....I could just rip down the Grand Opening sign and....Cocktail the place for the insurance....<.<
As an update to your Atom Cats comment. RedrocketTV who you feature in the beginning just released an amazing Atom Cats garage mod that turns a warehouse across the way into a multi floor power armor workshop. Very well done as is all their mods.
Love the mod reviews! I wish you could slow down your camera pans when looking around though. I really appreciate all the information you provide in the "read more" section. Keep up the good work- it's SO delightful :) :)
The diner behind the slog had a note and skeleton suggesting a man was trapped in there to starve by someone he clearly trusted. I don't know if I'd feel comfortable there, his betrayal doesn't sit right with me.
What a shame through, I love that mod
I can't drink coffee and I must avoid drinks with higher amoutns of caffeine, like Coke. I came down with a somewhat serious depression a year and so ago. I underwent treatment but when I told my psychiatrist what caffeine was doing to me, she said it was not because I mixed it with the anti-depressant she precribed, and honestly nothing like that was written in the information buletin for it. Turns out the depression made a permanent mark on how my brain handles caffeine and most likely alcohol so I'm afraid I can't enjoy your videos while drinking anything with caffeine.
Hey Oxhorn! Would you consider doing a list for additional animation mods? Like I saw there was a mod to have npcs be able to use bathtubs with a lounging animation. Stuff like that. Would be interesting to see what's out there! :D
Do you dislike MxR? Probably a bit straight forward but I think your videos are much better and you post more, they have more detail and your voice makes the lore and reviews much more interesting or if it's sad or scary or happy, more alive
I made a cool diner in my Sim settlements build and was about to post it, but then cdante on Nexus decided to be a little bitch and block me. Then Kinggath acted like a bitch too and blocked me from the forum for me telling cdante to stop harassing me. Thats on top of all the crap I dealt with last year with actual pro-nazi modders in the discord groups. Apparently most of the modding community really is morons and hateful assholes.
I'm now hoping for the Creation Club to replace or exile those people...
you should show us how you normally play,like your show your power armor(s) and guns and weapons and your fav mods and settlements,also im curious if you use the settlement in the city,i dunno the name,srry,but its like a tiny alley which was filled with some raiders,i like that one cuz its like a little private home out in nowhere,thanks for entertaining us, really love your vids
ps.i guess i should say not the settlement in diamond city, in Boston city.
Quick question, Oxhorn. I saw you used the Place Anywhere mod to scrap items that aren't normally scrappable. Does that mean you don't need a mod like Scrap Anything in order to scrap anything? Does Place Anywhere do the same thing?
Okay this is 100% unrelated to this video, but you are 100% responsible for inspiring my new FO4 playthrough. And tonight I was doing the steps to get the "best" ending where only the Institute dies, and I realized two things.
That ending is intentional, and it's ONLY available through metagaming or through RPing a character with a very strict moral code, COMBINED with critical thinking and reading the lore.
The Institute motto is "Humanity, reimagined." That sounds like they want to remake themselves into a different, better creature. Like the original purpose of the FEV research, in fact.
The program of kidnapping people and replacing them with synths makes little sense on the surface beyond pure maliciousness, or testing of an unknown purpose.
While most gen 3 synths are made to human specs so that they are virtually indistinguishable from a regular human, Coursers prove that the Institute is capable of creating superhumans using their Gen 3 program (Coursers aren't that dangerous in-game in my opinion, but it's clear from the way they talk no normal human should hold a candle to them unless they're decked in power armor)
Edit; forgot this part: The FEV experiments also make sense; if they could control the supermutant mutations to grant their synths the radiation resistance and limited physical benefits without the gross muscular changes and psychological issues, they would have a huge advantage in the wasteland. And since they would be artificially produced, the FEV's side effect of infertility is of no concern to them.
Here's what I think is happening.
The Institute wants to upload themselves into perfected synth bodies as their endgame.
The "regular" gen 3 synths you see in the Institute are basically the Gen 3.0. Mostly blank servants.
Then you have the "replacers" who duplicate the personality of the kidnapped individual to an uncanny degree. Nick also shows their successes in fully transplanting personlities into synth minds. Curie could possibly also count as supporting this, as it's clear the synth mind is designed to readily accept a wide range of personality imprints from various sources.
Now, if they perfected that personality cloning technology, combined that with a perfected physical specimen from the Courser program, and add in a perfected strain of FEV, and you put them together, you get everyone in the Institute (or the elites at least) in Courser++ bodies, immune to radiation, with the ability to repeat the process, granting a form of immortality (not unlike the Tleilaxu in Dune, who eventually used a similar ghola cloning process to achieve immortality of a sort). This also fits with "child Shaun"; perhaps Shaun was hoping to place his mind in a child body before releasing the Sole Survivor, and letting them raise him.
This also implies that once that transformation took place, they would see humans as competition for resources, and would begin a purge; possibly by using their test-replacers who they went ahead and put in positions of power to bring about conflict and wars amongst the Commonwealth.
This also resolves the biggest sour note for me; why the Institute murdered the reps from the CPG. Prior to this theory, which fits perfectly, my only theory was based on something you mentioned in their lore; perhaps the larger Institute leadership wasn't behind the attack, but an isolationist faction within the Institute used it as a way to force the Institute into remaining underground. Edit: I should explain I think. This gives the Institute a motivation to cripple the CPG in it's infancy; since their synth project was already underway, they would want to prevent any topside organizations from forming who could challenge them once they completed their transformations and claimed the surface.
One has to wonder, even, if maybe the Institute wasn't behind the fall of the Minutemen as well. It wouldn't take much for a few well placed or well financed synths to coax the Gunners into that attack. Or perhaps the Minuteman traitor was a synth and flipped sides at the right moment to completely destroy the Minutemen, knowing they could pose a threat in 50ish years when the plan was due to come to fruition.
Hope you read this, I'd love to hear what you think.
The only reason I dislike him is due to all the radiant quests he gives.
He's ok in combat, but other than that I'm largely indifferent to him. I travelled with him predominantly to get his perk, but that's about it.
A Zombie out from under the bed..too many monsters under there anyway.. and then you've got another coming outta the closet... hardly a surprise there... always wondered about him... and of course there's always the party guest that hangs out in the kitchen..you know what I mean!... who just doesn't know when it's time to go home... sounds like a share house I stayed at for a couple o'nights years ago...... never again... never again.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
