Trouble on the Homefront - Keeping Vault 101's door open forever - Best way?

#1sonkatekercsPosted 3/1/2010 11:13:15 AM
So, I already know of these methods listed here:
http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Trouble_on_the_Homefront

But I want the best solution, where I don't kill anyone, and they remain in the Vault so I can go in and out freely as nothing has ever happened.

They say there's multiple ways to do it, too.

So. What is the best way to do it?

The best way to keep the vault open and not kill anybody is to destroy the water chip. Everyone has to leave and they might die out in the wastes but at least you didn't kill em' right?

Oh man, that ain't sounds right.

I meant, to leave them in the Vault...

Rule of thumb: When Gfaqs doesnt know consult the wiki. If the wiki doesn't say its possible...it probably isn't.

Convince the Overseer to let them leave Vault 101. They will leave from time to time but will still live in the Vault.

There's no way to complete the quest with the parameters you've specified.

I thought that I read there was a way to glitch it so that the door remained open to you even though people continued to live in the Vault, but if you're not seeing it in the Wiki, then I guess I was wrong.

Yes! The wiki says something about that, but it's not that clear... I need more info on that...

Try convincing the overseer to step down and make Amata the new overseer. Then kill both Amata and the overseer. You will get a message saying "Vault 101 has been thrown into chaos". Once you leave the vault door stays open. I dont know if everyone else stays, I know Butch doesnt.

Yes it is that bad. It's sad to say you would actually be safer in Fallout 3 than in Detroit.

Yes but that means I fail the quest... =/
