It is possible to keep your inventory from the simulation. This means that you can keep your Winterized Combat Armor, Gauss Rifle, Jingwei's Shock Sword and whatever weapons you got from the Quartermaster (ie:Trench Knife, Assault Rifle, Combat Shotgun, etc.) and then receive your reward from the VSS Armory in the Outcast Outpost. continue →
This is possible by exploiting an inventory glitch where the player's inventory from the simulation is not removed until after the player returns to the Outpost. To perform this glitch, do the following steps in order and remember to save before performing the glitch because it will take several attempts to achieve this. Also note that the player should not have started the simulation already, otherwise it is impossible to do and I would suggest loading a previous save if you really want to keep your simulation items.
1. - To set this glitch up, the player needs to talk to Protector McGraw and then to Specialist Olin to get the Neural Interface Suit. After you equip the suit, open the simulation pod but DO NOT sit down on it.
2. - Go into the locked room where Gary 23 is and then drag his body back into the pod room. Lift his body into the pod, bending him around the foot rest. His legs under the foot rest, and his head on the top, in the middle of the foot rest. You should be able to interact with him by looking all the way down, while on the chair. Save now, and enter the chair, if his head is in the middle of the screen, and obviously in range if you look all the way down, you have him right. Also, make sure his body is within the shell's range, so you don't get him fracked up... You will notice him get fracked up if he gets moved out of the pod, or begins having seizures. ***It is most important here to be looking at the body when the simulation starts as if you were going to search it but the option will be unavailable at this time*** What I did was I took about four of those wooden boxes and stacked them and them put Gary 23 on top of them so he's right in front of me when I sit down. This really worked but sometimes when you put the boxes on the Pod they dissapear, don't worry though they'll appear when you try to put stuff on them.
NOTE : if you wanna make sure that you this will work , just kill all the outcasts in the room , and place them in the pod as well. Killing them won't make the rest of the outcasts hostile towards you as long as you don't leave the simulation area to return to the...
