I was looking at the vehicle mods in fallout 3 and new vegas but I thought the map was a bit small for vehicles but I was wondering how you thought about them and if you think the map is a bit small how much bigger do you think the map should be for vehicle mods and with fallout 4 coming out later this year do you hope for usable vehicles.

The only vehicular devices i want in fallout 4 is what they have showed us - vertibirds
Vehicles just dont fit in Fallout IMO
Plus you are right -- XRE makes the map seem WAYYYY to small

I don't think it would really fit, I'm skeptical on the vertibird as well to be honest. There's no telling about the map size though. I just hope if there is that it doesn't make getting around way to easy and quick, it would kill a lot of the fun these games have.

I sometimes use XRE cars for new vegas and I think the map is big enough for them because you get the highway that you have to follow south, then east and then north so the vehicles make it quicker to travel the distance. Also I'm not bothered about lore or whatever so I don't mind if they don't fit into the game world.
In regards to fallout 4 I wouldn't mind have cars or bikes, however I think just using that vertibird would be awesome as well!

I use XRE's Cars and some Drivable Motorcycle mod i found a while back but forgot what its called i use it as a alternate to fast travel
I just wish there was a mod were it aloud you to go around and fix the roads to make them driveable on
I hope Fallout 4 will have working motorcycle's or cars maybe even vertiberd
I would even love just to drive a shopping car lol
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.

I don't usually use any for serious playthroughs, but I'll usually have XRE's vertibird mod installed because it's hella fun.

Maybe the dont fit in the game but if you have the power and knowledge to run sola installations and energy weapons why not have usable vehicles.
And i really hope that the F4 map will be huge so you can use mods or maybe the base game(i hope) to travel the wastes.

I wouldn't really consider this a vehicle, but maybe some mounts would be lore friendly. Like maybe you can ride like a mutated horse or something.

For New Vegas I can see where cars would be useful but for fallout 3 I don't think so. There's too much city in 3 for cars. Obviously the map for 4 must be pretty big if they're giving us a vertibird to travel with.

A working car or motorcycle would fit with the Fallout setting imo. I think a veribird would be wrong, and correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't they exclusive to the Enclave?

tbh i would like to see some sort of motorcycle in fallout 4 it would be very fitting. xre's handling just sucks for the cars also cars is too much. some sort motorcycle like from gta5 but a little bit slower would definitely fit in new vegas aswell

No, the NCR had vertibirds according to either the Fallout Bible or the Fallout P&P RPG. Kind of makes sense since a lot of the blueprints for them went missing from the Enclave in FO2.
edit: I just remembered they obviously had one: Bear Force One that brings the president to Hoover Dam in FNV.

It'd be nice if there was a good motorcycle mod. (dirt bike maybe). I think they would fit in pretty good especially if fast travel was disabled (or limited). A horse would work well too. Either would let you get to places that a car could not go. The normal speed of either the motorcycle or horse could start at about 110% of the characters running speed and top off at 200% - 300%. Eventually you would have to find fuel for the bike or food for the horse so that could be used to limit things if necessary. ... In either case it would be nice if it recognized a TTW install so you could use the transport in either DC or NV..

With a mod that repairs what roads are available in-game, I don't see what's wrong with the map size.
I'm a little disappointed no one ever made a mod to repair the Wrecked Highwayman, what with all the other mods designed to re-purpose and rebuild vanilla areas into player homes.

I don't know, I'd have to try it with a bigger map, but I think vehicles kind of ruin the mood of a Fallout game for me. Sure a bike should be ok, but going on to bigger things.... It'd have to be VERY well implemented and it should be a replacement of the fast travel.

I would argue for the idea of vehicles and mounts, but that falls into the realm of mods. I could never get XRE Cars to work, and both that and the motorcycle mod take too much fuss to work on a controller. It it were integrated naturally, like a quest where you find the parts to repair a motorcycle mid to late game, or had to work to train an animal as a pack mule and eventual mount, I could see that working in New Vegas since you had a great deal of open space. I like the Mobile Truck Base because you had to fill it with gas and it eliminated fast travel while making a more accessible home base. I think that kind of vehicle integration would be reasonable, even with a limited amount of driving ability to set up your own locations.

I use the Mobile Truck Base as my only vehicle mod. Its basically just a van with some stuff in it which you can use as a mobile home. You can't drive it yourself but it has some fast travel points it can go to. I think there was a car you could drive in Fallout 2 so it isn't lore friendly or anything to have vehicles. Especially when you have the Enclave, Brotherhood and even the NCR flying around in Vertibirds. If they can drive around in flying vertibirds, the boomers can fix up a 300 year old german bomber, surely I could fix up an old truck and drive that around.

The idea of getting some vehicles in future Fallout installments sounds pretty cool imo. The Fallout 4 map is going to be huge (twice the size of the Skyrim map, supposedly), and having vehicles fits in perfectly fine with the lore. Also, riding around in a vertibird sounds awesome to me.
