    you can only go to locations you have visited and it doesn't even circle the location you go to so you can shoot, it just instantly drops you off. I guess its cool but I think id rather fast travel instead of calling a vertibird which will circle enemies when in call it even though it doesn't have a gunner in it so it will take 5 mins for it to land by me then it just drops me off at my destination

    Yeah, that are my thoughts too. I would rather spend like 250 caps per signal grenade and instead have an armed Vertibird shooting its onboard gun as well as minigun for a few minutes rather than just a prettier & cooler fast-travel method. Or a Vertibird call for 500 caps that drops some mini-nukes. :lol:

    I thought it would have been better if the Vertibird for example just air-dropped some supplies instead of providing us with a boring 5 minut shooting gallery.

    Or a BOS Knight (maybe 2) that will follow you around for a short while and then leave again.

    I figured it was just a more realistic way to present "how fast travel works" so you might want to do it for roleplaying or immersion reasons.

    Yet they still haven't bothered to add a car, despite it being one of the most popular mods for New Vegas.

    I'm not sure if their engine can handle car, it will just fly around hilariously over the smallest rock on a road. It can barely do it with a flying object like the vertibird, so a car, no way it's going to happen, unless they change their engine.

    There's already a working car mod in New Vegas, or the car could just work like the Highwayman in FO2
