    I'm trying to figure out how to put the water chip back into the water chip computer, in the vault under Necropolis. I've tried everything I can think of, can someone pleease help me with this? :(

    I have the chip in my inventory, but when I click on the computer, I keep getting a message saying that a water chip is required to do that. ......huh? And if I put it in one of those two inventory blocks so I can use it, I can't click on it. There's no "use" type, like when you normally use a usable object, like a stim.

    Click and hold on the computer, select the backpack icon, then select the chip.

    Why are you trying to put it back? You aren't trying to fix the watershed?

    I think you can raise the amount of time you have left to finish the game that way. You know: 150 days left to find water chip in your PipBoy. I think re-installing the waterchip in Necropolis adds an extra 100 days to that. I'm not sure about the exact amount, but I'm pretty sure that's what he's trying to do.

    Thanks Per!! I'm gonna go try that right now!

    Yeah, I LOVE this game... but I totally HATE playing a game with a clock counting down on me. I like to explore and get side tracked, be a pack rat, etc. So I found out how to raise the time limit. :D

    All you do is take the water chip back to the vault. When you're asked for the water chip, you press 0. The quest is completed, but you still have the water chip. Then you just take it to the computer and put the water chip back in, and the clock resets. So you can basicly play as long as you want. Personally... I think I might go kill a bunch of deathclaws and get that 1000 xp for each time I kill each one. You kill all the deathclaws above ground on the deathclaw map in the Bone Yard, then go back to the map before the deathclaw map, sleep for an hour, then go back to the deathclaw map and wala! New Deathclaws! You get 1000xp each time you kill one. :)

    I also wanna explore the entire map and try and see if I can find that alien blaster. :D

    Yeah that thing was cool. It's in a random encounter that I never got with less than luck 9. It kicks major ass though and well worth it.

    Funnily enough I just started a new game with a character with Luck 7. Encountered the Alien crash site between Junktown and the Hub, though I normally encounter it a lot closer to The Glow.

    You have all the time you need after bringing the water chip to Vault 13.
