    On a related note, can i steal these bugged weapons out of the confiscated weapons safe or are they just completely gone from existence?
    I'm pretty sure they're gone forever. You could replace them with console commands.

    This time on my trek through new Vegas, I came to the guard robot to the Strip. saw the science option and decided to come back later so I can do science to it once I level up enough. so I went and did various things to try and do just that, including getting the space suit:

    I went to the NCR correctional facility and killed all the powder gangers there. no I don't care about the rep or the karma lowering, these guys are jerks and now they're all dead. Thing is I walked up to the doorman and he greeted me cheerfully as if I was just a fresh face and not already hated with them. I shot him first then proceeded to get rid of the rest.

    next I went far east and found this Nelson place where I came across this NCR guy, agreed to help put some NCR soldiers out of their misery to save them from the Legion. ended up killing all the legion troops there to.

    and then I went to Helios One, to see what that was all about. turns out its a power facility and the NCR hired an idiot to try and fix it. like someone who calls them Fantastic, does nothing but push buttons around and acts as if he is the greatest thing in the world, frigging dunning-krueger effect. and whats worse is how he got hired, apparently the NCR's scientist recruiters are just as stupid as he is. Ignacios a more reasonable and humanitarian fella, so I go and agree to repower the plant and spread it throughout the whole region, seems like a good problem to solve with SCIENCE! so I go in and the robots are hard things to face, at least I managed to turn off the turrets.....on second I should've probably made the turrets target the robots....also no powering up Archimedes, I have no idea what it exactly does, but I probably don't want to find out, even if I have an inkling of it.

    but I manage to make it through, repair the cables, configure the power distribution and retilt the dish to maximize power and boom! the region has power once again! I go back to Ignacio and he gets me stimpaks which I'm actually thankful for because I keep running out for some reason. case in point: right after I walk out of Helios One, I encounter a group of Legion Assassins attacking a merchant for some reason, after a few tries and some stims I manage to kill them all using my grenade gun using up almost all its ammo and take their super-sledge. and now I'm level 9 on the edge of 10 and thinking I should find some way of becoming more durable.

    and throughout this session of it I kept trying to find a place to sleep and getting ambush/finding mobs trying to kill me and I work fast to kill them at low health and stims, its terrifying and annoying. more than once I resort to my rebar club or super-sledge to kill them fast.

    my only regret this entire time is that I didn't get to kill Fantastic in some way. maybe I should come back to Helios One someday and do just that.

    Eh, Fantastic's okay. He's not evil, just dumb.

    After playing that quest a few times, I'm beginning to suspect that Ignacio is helping Fantastic just enough so he doesn't get replaced.

    Yeah, wouldn't want the NCR to have an actual smart scientist who could figure out Archimedes, I guess, so I GUESS thats a reason to let him live.....

    This might be off-topic, if it is, I'm sure our one mod will complain but I have to say something: Why Nexus? Why? Why stop supporting software that if not perfectly functional works at all, for an alpha that's by your own admission bug-ridden and not fit for actual release? And why now can I not install my mods because the FOMM scripting has some how now got the wrong opening line on it's XML file? What on earth were you thinking?

    Okay, rant over.

    Speaking of Legion Assassins; what I find most annoying about them isn't being attacked (i generally don' trigger them until I'm well equipped to slug it out with them) but rather their habit of inflicting collateral damage on named NPCs. In one of my playthroughs, they actually killed Fitz and Lupe.

    And it's not just Legion Assassins. One time I fast traveled to the Gun Runner Vendortron, only to hear gunfire. I search around, kill a lone Fiend, and realize that the Fiend killed Issac. I didn't need him for anything, but there's one quest that involves him I think.

    And another time a wandering merchant got killed by a Fiend, and the Hostetler guy was just nearby on his way to work. I needed him for a quest, and luckily the Fiend was too busy shooting a pack animal to notice either me or Don as targets.

    I get that it's sort of realistic to have these interactions, but it is a bit galling to have your quest-important NPCs or merchants removed from play due to blind luck.

    I don't know for sure, but it sounds like it's because Nexus updated itself to use https instead of http for - everything. Caused my Nexus Mod Manager to stop working pretty much completely for a couple of weeks, until I Realised What Had Happened and updated it.

    If I'm right, and if you can actually find the XML file - then you should be able to solve the problem by opening it (any text editor will do), and changing the "http://..." link in the first line to "https://...".
