    I got to Silver Rush in freeside last night and couldn't stop thinking about this. The displays look so nice though :-/

    In some places owned goods are sitting on top of non-owned Workbenches, Reloading Benches, beds, and what not. I find moving the items away so I don't accidentally steal them when crafting is a much safer approach.

    It has its uses, but I agree that being able to move items is very situational except if using it to exploit or to play the Garry's Mod minigame.

    Regarding the save-fail-reload thing, I noticed this with merchants. If merchants don't have things I like, I have to exit the game entirely and then start it up again before I can see a new inventory. The save-fail-reload thing works once before the merchants' inventories are locked.

    That's what I figured, and that was the case -- at least until I hit the late level 20's.

    As it turns out(apparently), damage, accuracy, armor penetration, and "scope wobble" are all built into the skill level. So when I'm level 30 with ~50 pts in both energy and guns (and even lower in unarmed/melee) I am almost *completely* ineffective in combat against the games harder enemies (particularly deathclaws).

    I managed to complete the game regardless due to the following:

    - Very high speech checks
    - Great follower NPCs
    - Great quest NPCs
    - Mass chems/implants
    - Heavy quickloading

    The Super Sledge at ~30 skill was actually reasonably effective in the final battles whereas my guns (and I was armed to the gills with effective, top-cond named weapons) were practically useless.

    And found out later that the Alien Blaster is apparently even more OP in this than in previous games. Seriously, it wrecks almost EVERYTHING in 1 shot (I think the Legate took ~5 randomly placed shots) even at ~50 skill level, and it's got a great ROF.

    I also tend to make certain my favorite equipment is always in tip-top shape. I did not realize the disastrous impact that had on my previously-beloved Mysterious Magnum. Live and learn.
