Fallout 3 Repair sounds pretty cool, glad that it's an option.

I'm doing a F03 run right now, and would like to comment comment on the way speech and repair works in the game versus FNV. I'm not going to focus on the crashes I'm enduring or the mistake I made loading both FOOK2 and FWE together, but I do really like how speech checks works in 3 with this setup.
I have a chance to make a speech check whether I have the necessary value or not. In FNV, I either end up waiting or end up getting frustrated and just cheat and pass the speech check that way, then set back. Stupid, but there it is.
While I was originally dismayed on repair, I kept working at it and eventually managed to get up to worthwhile on weapons on armor. Perhaps it was the mods helping especially CRAFT, I'll try another run without mods and see how that works.
Have never tried TTW, looking forward to it with interest, especially if I can run FNV with fewer crashes on it.

Well, that argument could be made for any stat-locked content in any game ever made. The way it is supposed to work is you wait, or you don't do the check at all. Cheating to get every check in the game without the actual skill needed is not the intended way to play the game. It's no different than cheating to open a lock that is above your level, or otherwise bypass gated content.

I much rather FO3 speech checks, as it kinda allows for keeping track/retry the dialogs in a future occasion down the road, sort of having to 'build a relationship' with that NPC xD
For example trying to get Doc Church in Megaton clinic to talk about the Replicated Men quest, or Leo's drug habit. I can keep going back to him after a day or two until I get him to talk, it is sort of like in real life, building a relationship and such. Ofc there are those speech checks you can't retry and must pass in the heat of the moment, but those are ok to depend on RNG (luck), it adds to the thrill and replay value.
