    During my last play through, I could not get the Assault Vault 88 Conqueror quest to complete. After digging through these here forums (for the life of me I can't find the thread to link it) someone else posted a similar problem. What they ended up doing was killing the Overseer (who was not hostile) and their quest completed.

    During the Vault 88 quests, I ended up pissing off one of the three starter settlers, so she left. The Overseer left too. By the time I scheduled my raid, those two were never to be found and the quest wouldn't complete. I even tried to summon the Overseer via console commands. I even cloned her. But nope.

    So, my next time through (I'm a whopping level 11 right now!) I will do two things:
    1: Keep the Overseer in the vault.
    2: Keep the starter settler in the vault.

    The first one may be hard because she's gonna be right pissed off that I did the 'happy' things to keep the other settler from leaving. (I want the happy bonus for the slot machine anyway).

    But, I reckon that by having all the NPC's assigned to the Vault still in the vault, I should be able to complete the quest.

    FYI: I couldn't find the proper QuestID to trigger its successful completion. Believe me lawdy lawd, I tried.

    this is something that i have also been wondering about.
    there are 4 settlers
    Overseer
    Clem
    the cynic
    and the not jumping into a reactor guy.

    which one of these have essential flags?
    which ones are not cleaned up by the game properly?
    Is it better to just swat the overseer outright and prevent the crew from even spawning?

    Or is vault 88 Best left as a vassal?

    I'm running a new play through and will let you know if 88 works well as an outpost. I like that idea because it's an instance and hopefully can support a very large build.

    i found that there is a issue with vault 88 and i wonder if mechanist lair will be the same.

    Namely that it does not project a sphere of control so you cant vassal jamaica plains that next door.
    It however does make a great location to move your HQ though since then there wont be random attacks and such interupting jammer/ophelia.

    Oh and i found the vault is best taken care of by shooting barstow the moment you see her.
    if you don't do the quest to recruit them they wont bug your missions.

    Good to know. Not there yet, but I may just do that.
    I'd like to have the happy slot machine and soda fountain, but having 88 as an HQ that I can build up to my heart's content may be worth that sacrifice.
