I've only just started playing through OWB, but have noted that Higgs Village is an easy source of books, there at least 216 books found loose throughout the houses.

On another note I thought that the Book Chutes model number of 232.7 may have been of relevance but in the Dewey Decimal system it is Jesus Christ and his family, whilst in the Melvil Decimal system it is Christian Doctrinal Theology.Dakota_

can create skill books???!!![edit source]

the creation of skill books? wow that seems overpowered. there are tonnes of pre-war books in new vegas. there must be a catch to this?

Its not just Pre War Books you can use but also the Ruined and Burnt books as well. However to create a skill book you need 25 Blank Books, 2 Wonderglue and the relevant Holodisk Recipe. When you create the skill book the Holodisk is consumed just like any other recipe ingredient. As far as I know theres only one of each Holodisk and as such you can only get one extra copy of each skill book.Dakota 14:45, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

It begs the question then: If the DLC is uninstalled, and a save is then made without it, can it then be re-installed and replayed fresh from that save to acquire the holotapes again, or do stats retroactively reset to what they were before the DLC?--Xclockwatcher 06:14, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

That would probably work but would be alot of work to get +3 or 4 points in a skill. Frantruck 23:45, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Not only would it be a lot of work but considering the increased level cap - which will be raised again with the release of Lonesome Road, and the number of existing skill books it really isn't at all necessary as maxing skills has become easier with each add-on. Dakota 13:29, July 28, 2011 (UTC)

Alright, so if it only creates one skill book each, what’s the point? Why didn’t they simply put one of each skill books for us to find? It seems like an overly complicated way to do something so simple. ReapTheChaos 18:43, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Pencil -> Lead conversion[edit source]

This is terribly inefficient. Pencils are worth 1 cap and produce 5 lead, while Scrap Metal - also worth 1 cap - can produce 200 lead! Even if your barter is low enough to be selling Pencils for 0.7 and buying Scrap for 2, you're still more than 10 times better off selling Pencils than feeding them to the Chute. -- Hayst 17:19, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

Besides that, you can't even get lead from pencils — they use graphite. --Bottletopman 09:19, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
It is meant to be the 50s though... GamerAddict7796 06:28, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

i don't think it was meant to be efficient, rather a way to actually USE pencils, before OWB they had no use but to be sold irradiated dirt cheap. this way if you have a lot of hours and have scoured the mojave for scrap to make into lead and your down to buying 2-3 scrap meatl from vendors just to get lead, you now have a new source of lead that is really common, it's a win-win really Brotherhood-overlord-6 01:39, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

proletariat[edit source]

why there is a definition of proletariat in "behind the scenes" section? is there really people who don't know meaning of proletariat in usa? omg what kind of brainwashing-propagandist education system you have there?

That you automatically assume that it is the american education system that causes people to no tknow what a proletariat is, shows your ignorance. Some people si ply doesn't care about knowing it, people who has no interest in such things. It stays, live with it. Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 11:00, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

proletariat is a word commonly used all around the world and its hard to find someone who doesn't know its meaning. and suprising to usa banning "words" makes me "ignorant"? makes perfect sense. by the way what the heck is mean "doesn't care about knowing"? and you talking about "ignorance"?


Speaking of ignorance, the shift key will allow your keyboard to capitalize letters, helping you to appear more literate when you type. If you're going to be a rude jerk, then have the nerve to leave your name on your post.

Character played by...[edit source]

Is this obnoxious little Orwellian played by the ever-annoying Jerry Seinfeld?

Speculation?[edit source]

I just posted (without signing in) a Behind-the-Scenes regarding 1984, regarding the Book Chute's 'journal' remark, and the parallel that drew from 1984. What I don't understand is why it was removed for being speculative: the Book Chute most definitely says this, and the events do really transpire in the novel. I don't really see the connection being any more or less tenuous than the rest that have been added thus far...

Not trying to come off as angry or whiny. Just a little confused. -- Balphezar 22:29, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

I removed it for the very reason you said, it was tenuous. I haven't made any kind of comprehensive sweep of behind the scenes sections, but many of them need to be removed. I just don't see how mention of a journal relates it to Winston and his writing in 1984. BILLYOCEAN Wanna talk? 22:34, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
Also, you didn't seem angry or whiny at all, very reasonable.
