Oh, and to top it off, I used a save editor to:
Raise my luck to 10
Raise my outdoormans skill to 300%
Cheat level 3 bonus move perk so I could run away from enclave
And guess what? I STILL GOT FOUR RANDOM ENCOUNTERS IN A ROW THAT I COULD NOT SKIP! WTF!
I had to literally cheat myself 300 hp to get past the TWO enclave patrols I encountered within 3 feet of each other, AND I STILL ONLY LIVED WITH 1HP!
Is the game trolling me? Seriously? Is there some copy protection being triggered here that I'm not aware of? I'm playing a legit version obtained from GoG...
Like, I could understand if I got caught a few times, but what the f....Fallout 1 had nowhere near this many encounters, and they were at least REASONABLE to survive. In this game there's like 6 deathclaws, or 6 overpowered aliens per encounter, i mean come on
