Safe Storage in the Lighthouse?[edit source]

I was looking at the Player Housing page and it says that the lighthouse in Point Lookout can be used for storage, but doesn't give any details beyond that. Is it only that items dropped on the ground will remain safe or can the containers be used safely as well (or vice versa)? (360) 184.57.106.7 22:03, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Seafarer's Friend?[edit source]

What is this questline exactly? It redirects here...

Note removed?[edit source]

Is there any particular reason the addition I made in the notes section was removed? I think it was a perfectly valid and useful piece of information. I was simply stating that replacing the light bulb serves no real purpose, offers no reward or any XP and if you wish you can simply keep the bulb as a souvenir. I can site hundreds of pages where things of this nature are noted so why not here?

I don't know. It sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Chaos ian7 17:00, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I removed the note. Here it is as written:
  • Repairing the Lighthouse serves no real purpose. There is no reward or XP given for doing this so if you would rather keep the light bulb as a souvenir to display in your house then by all means do so.
Here's the problem: The only info in the entry is the fact that there is no xp awarded.
  • "No real purpose" is a subjective statement, especially since replacing the bulb actually makes the lighthouse work, i.e. emit light.
  • You can always keep every item as a souvenir, so it is not worth noting anywhere.
Hope that clears things up for you.--Gothemasticator 21:16, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

Lighthouse Design[edit source]

The Assateague Lighthouse is less known than the NC lighthouse (which became incredibly famous when it had to be moved, successfully, inland due to erosion). The feat of moving the lighthouse garnered nationwide attention and spawned at least one major documentary on the engineering feat. Mictlantecuhtli 23:42, April 4, 2011 (UTC)

And that has what reference to the Fallout world? Secondly, the Cape Hatteras Light has a different pattern painted on the exterior to that of the game, so what source is there that the design is based on that particular light house, especially since the structure is a generic design seen all over the world.

Point out another example of that type of lighthouse which is so famous. Look at the length of the wikipedia article compared to the Assateague Light for instance. I doubt that design is used on any other lighthouse of note. Given how hard people argued that Lady Deathstrike (the other adamantium skeleton person) didn't belong in the behind the scenes due to her low popularity, why shouldn't this lighthouse be included as a reference point since it is the most famous example? Mictlantecuhtli 00:02, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tallest_lighthouses_in_the_world - Yeah it really looks like a common design according to this, the ones that come close in appearance have far too many windows, etc. Mictlantecuhtli 00:07, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
Really if the most famous lighthouse of that type doesn't qualify, maybe we should change the adamantium skeleton article to just say "is in reference to various Marvel comics characters". As its essentially the same thing as what happened here. Mictlantecuhtli 00:13, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
Length of a page does not determine its popularity or fame, secondly it is of notability only at a national level, not that of a international level. As for basing of that light house, you know the rules on speculation here and the Marvel wiki has no relevance to this wiki either. User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 00:27, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
Adamantium Skeleton I disagree it has nothing to do with it, and name one international example of that lighthouse design. I only pointed out the article length as one example, there are others (namely the nationwide attention it got in the news, the documentary about the move and the fact its one of the tallest in the world). If you can come up with a foreign example of that design which matches as close as Hatteras I will drop it. I don't think you will since that design looks isolated to North America (and more precisely America), your belief its a common worldwide design at this point is pure speculation (as both examples are American). Mictlantecuhtli 00:59, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
Before I go into this, do not go into the level of detail of bringing up the number of windows, cus I can pull that apart in your own example, since the Point Lookout lighthouse has staggered windows every 90 degrees plus many other aspects between your example and the Point Lookout lighthouse differ. But examples Split Point Lighthouse in aussie land that appears in a TV show over there, Westerhever Sand Lighthouse in Germany that is famous over there, it appears on beer bottle and stamps etc. There is Ile Vierge Lighthouse in France, the tallest lighthouse of this style in the world, The Bell Rock Lighthouse in the UK, the oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse, Cape Lookout Lighthouse just cus the name is so close to Point Lookout, all have similar design principles and the list could go on.

I'm removing the Behind the scenes section of this article entirely. The "Point Lookout Lighthouse" linked to does not resemble the in-game structure at all. Name-only similarities do not constitute cultural refs. Also, there is no evidence whatsoever that the in-game structure has been based on any existing lighthouse. General similarities to real-world objects or events also do not constitute cultural refs. And, as for Adamantium Skeleton, the deal is that Wolverine is the primary character associated with Adamantium skeleton. All other characters who might have such a skeleton were created after and because of Wolverine. So, he gets the mention.--Gothemasticator 01:31, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
