TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Barstow's coming tomorrow. Another dog and pony show. Entrance is finally properly done. So if she brings VIPs, as long as they stick to that section, it'll feel like a real Vault.

Turns out the construction boys aren't so bad. Been having a friendly poker game. From the way things are going, they're going to be here a good long while yet. Got invited to some Halloween party. God knows we could use a little excitement around here.

August 29, 2077[edit | edit source]

Finally got a real security system. I know the entrance is window dressing, but if Barstow keeps bringing the top brass around it's my ass if something goes wrong.

The construction crew keeps griping about the new security measures. They can complain all they like.

Vault 88 is designed to test a variety of prototype devices with the aim of rolling them out through the rest of the Vaults. Once Vault 88 is fully operational, we expect to roll out new devices every fiscal quarter. The initial prototypes are admittedly rough, so do the best you can with them.

Unlike other Vaults, we'll send test subjects before any disaster scenario. Best estimate is early 2078 you'll have your first batch. Use each batch as long as feasible, but we are prepared to replace personnel if there are complications. Quick iteration time is a must.

If the Vault goes on lock down, the urgency of the time table diminishes. So you'll have to keep the test subjects docile and in-line. We have every faith you're up for the task, Doctor Barstow.

Power Cycle 1000 Analysis[edit | edit source]

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Additional power production."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Power output increased by 50%. Max heart rate 183 bpm. No permanent damage to test subject.

Evaluation: Complete success.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Sustained usage incentives."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

No increase in power output. However, the test subject voluntarily maintained power target levels throughout the entire experiment. No noticed deleterious effects.

Evaluation: Success.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Environmental enhancer."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Power levels sub-optimal. Power production also "spikey". At one point test subject got up to answer the "call of nature" - resulting in a 5m27s gap of no power. Unacceptable.

Evaluation: Failure.

Soda Fountain[edit | edit source]

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Appetite Suppressant."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Appetite of test subjects immediately reduced. Will monitor both to ensure minimal nutritional needs are met. Perhaps introduce discreet IVs near sleeping areas?

Evaluation: Success, will lower dosage.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Mood Enhancer."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Biometric data indicates test subjects in a state of euphoria for a short time after introduction of the soda delivery mechanism. Will monitor test subjects to see if there are long term effects. Unclear if there are substantial benefits.

Evaluation: Partial success.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Generic Caffeination."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The chemical added is a flavor enhancer. There are no additional benefits. At all.

Evaluation: Dismal failure.

Phoropter[edit | edit source]

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Subliminal messages."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Run-away nuclear fission reaction shutdown by fail safes. Additionally, timing of images considerably off. Longest image exposure was 0.3s. Clearly perceptible by test subject B. Despite this, the data looks promising.

Evaluation: Recommend full production.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Vault Monitoring."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Catastrophic MRI feedback resulted in massive radiation spike. Test subject B exposed to 63 rem in the course of treatment. Flaw identified and final unit production should be in the 3-12 rem per treatment.

Before the system shutdown, the "Inefficiency" card did result in Test Subject A being identified to a 63% degree of confidence.

Evaluation: Complete success, pending MRI fixes.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Improved Eye Care."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

This device showed so much potential. Instead, it performed its overt function (admittedly better than a standard phoropter).

Evaluation: Failure.

Slot Machine[edit | edit source]

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Indentured Servitude."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I thought the probability adjustment curve was too aggressive and would result in minimal addictiveness. I was completely wrong. Test subject A showed no signs of disengaging even after 30%. Test subject displayed extreme agitation when the ratio dipped below 10%. Too noticeable at that level, will adjust.

Evaluation: Complete success. Doctor Braun would be proud.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Customer profiling."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The test mimicked the behavior of a gambling addict. The machine correctly identified this behavior and recorded it. However, the photography is too overt, test subject noticed. If I removed the flash, however, it should be fine. Just make sure to place the machine in well lit areas.

Evaluation: Success.

Note: This is displayed if the device is set to "Lost Revenue."

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The control was never meant to be tested by itself. Of course the test subject was exuberant. Who wouldn't be on a machine that's programmed to reward the subjects an overwhelming percentage of the time? The longer this version of the slot machine is active, the more net resources the Vault loses.

Evaluation: Total failure. DO NOT BUILD!

By administering electric shocks when the subject's rotations per minute dips below acceptable levels, the amount of power generated can be increased.

Voltage decreased by 50% after several failed experiments (see "Autopsy 130-K" and "130-L"). Note: keep a fire extinguisher nearby just in case.

R&D Lead Notes[edit | edit source]
TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Over the many trials, we found that some test subjects would present physical resistance to Power Cycle testing. Using coercive or psychological force to maintain the Power Cycle could prove problematic in Vaults with minimal security personnel. By discreetly injecting small dosages of Buffout, not only will the test subject pedal longer and faster - but potentially they'll associate the narcotic effects with the activity.

Only tested this once in the lab. After 43 hours of continuous pedaling the test subject experienced a cardiac arrest. Recommend lowering the dosage for the full trial.

Doctor Riley's team took a very different direction in their trials, despite objections. They posited that if the Power Cycle 1000 was associated with natural positive feedback that productivity would be enhanced.

Using strong aromatic essential oils (e.g. lavender and sweet orange) the Power Cycle prototype elicited a strong initial impression. A sub-audible soundtrack of gentle waves lapping on a beach were added. The power production of this experiment was a dismal failure.

NOTE: I don't think Ted is working out, Doctor Braun.

The Power Cycle 1000 is already successful. Wasteful exercise turned into clean power. But I task your R&D team to reach even further. How can we further refine this product? Are there opportunities to further other goals of Vault-Tec?

We've achieved remarkable progress in synthesizing a lipstatin derivative. True, the side effects are more pronounced - but the efficacy is remarkable. Test subjects over the trial period lost 10% BMI. There has been an unfortunate loss of productivity among the subjects (one complete loss from a fatality, and two who refuse to get out of bed). But the others are consuming a quarter or less of a standard ration.

Assuming the kinks can be worked out, it could mean tremendously less resources to feed a full Vault.

Hallucigen provided us with a small sample of the final product, and it is quite exciting. They've made an extremely psychoactive compound that's soluble in water. It creates short term euphoria and in some cases mild hallucinations. Surprisingly, subjects suffered no withdrawal symptoms (though a substantial predilection to depression after the "crash"). In a first for our team, absolutely no fatalities. The worst side effect is Subject 13 who has been staring at his hand for 13 hours straight. Fascinating.

Note: We're trying to do something about the color. And the taste.

I'm just about to give up on Ted. If you parse out his team's elaborate presentation the active ingredient of Supplement Zed is just... caffeine. Plain, ordinary caffeine.

Unsurprisingly, the test subjects suffered no deleterious effects. Ted's team spent an inordinate amount of time balancing flavor and carbonation. They actually did focus testing against Nuka Cola to "enhance" its appeal!

I must admit, it's refreshing. God, I hate Ted.

Notes from Dr. Braun[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

After the initial stockpile of food and drink are depleted, Vault residents will become accustomed to anything new we give them. This gives us the intriguing possibility of adding chemical supplements to their diet with them being none the wiser. After much focus testing, we've settled on the Soda Fountain.

The only limit here is our chemical ingenuity. Make Vault-Tec proud.

R&D has designed a series of microflash images which, when played repeatedly and in a loop, have a statistically significant positive effect on the test subjects' view of the Vault, Vault-Tec, and the Overseer specifically. We never quite perfected an eye drop formula that was both effective and didn't cause long-lasting eye trauma, but we're still working on that.

Note: The lab had further advantages of electroshocks and physical restraints. So your mileage may vary in the field trials.

This one Team Walrus (don't ask) is very proud of, Doctor Braun. A small MRI specifically designed to fit in the phoropter when fed enough power and imaging can process the visual information response from stimuli. In layman's terms, it can read a test subject's mind and show an actual picture of what they're thinking about.

That's the promise, at least, but the images are very grainy and indistinct. Starting from the standard Rorschach test with hundreds of "volunteers" our computers could reliably identify these images with 71% accuracy. It's still early days, but the promise of getting involuntary glimpses into a population's mind could be a game changer for Vault management.

We then developed far more useful word associations that could assist any Overseer. By default the following are programmed in: Traitor, Inefficiency, Gossip, Complaint, and Kitten (that was our test case - hitting bugs removing it from the line up).

The challenge I put before you is to find a way to turn a simple eye exam into something that furthers Vault-Tec's ambitions. The phoropter is an excellent delivery mechanism because it's infrequent enough and arcane enough that if anything slightly irregular occurs, no one would know.

I expect great things from each of the teams.

Notes from Overseer Barstow[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Gambling is alluring by its very nature. Casinos throughout the country have spent millions to further refine its appeal. An in depth analysis of the techniques involved in Commonwealth Psychology Today gave me the inspiration to use gambling as a positive motivational force in the vault.

The big unanswered question is what's the best way to use this device. Options:

a) The device could manipulate probability to first entice a subject then later drain them of all financial resources. This would ensure the maximum amount of revenue for the vault. This is the "Indentured Servitude" parameter.

b) The machine itself could be a standard game of chance. But the machine is capable of identifying behavior and allowing the Overseer to track those with degenerate behavior. "Customer Profiling".

c) If there's time for a control, the probability could be adjusted to maximize the returns. I.e. gamblers will win more often than not. Undoubtedly this would prove popular (and expensive). But the "Lost Revenue" parameter should only be chosen for A/B testing.
