I think it would be best that all prisoner's recieve them upon orientation at the prison. BUT, the explosive function is only active when they're outside the main building while inside it has another feature which is basically a low-output sonic ray which disorients the subject taking the fight out of them and when they fight back then the guards pull out the bigger guns (fire arms, C. Regs, and battons.) So to reiterate: Prison Collars -Explosive based on proximity -(exceptions made during Scav. Ops in which case Still Explosive but based on Timer) -Sonic radio waves which disorient and confuse prisoner. (If my ideas were too jumbled in the large wall of text, you'll have to excuse me as I'm writing this after a long day.) To be fair: orientation is different from prisoner to prisoner, it involves at least one of the two things;1.) a shower (The nice and forced kind with de-lice powder) and change of clothes (This only applies to the people who were awake when processing into Sing Sing) and 2.) a face to face meeting with a prison guard and the warden where you're asked a questionare. This way everyone will know who the warden is. (Side note: The Warden is a personality program that can be installed on any Protectron or Mister Handy or whatever, this way if an accident happens, the warden cant be deleted, or can he?" And that the current warden is a olive drab and grey MK II Protectron with the words "Maintenance" written in faded gold letters on the back.) But I am open for suggestion. Also, I nearly pissed myself writing the last post, I had a set outline for how the characters were going to develop and their personalities, thier hopes and dreams but after watching this piece on Nuka Break, I decided that I wanted to make things darker, yes, but slightly into the realm of dark humor between Killgore and Roy. I want them to hate each other but at the same time have an alliance and eventually become friends. But back on my earlier point, while writing this post, I had this idea of a man who cant see the man sitting across from him and another man who now doesn't have to hide behind the social norms of "being nice" or "giving a hell". How did I do with this last piece?
