Purifying the water

Post by Sphunx » September 28th, 2014, 5:53 am

Is it possible to fix the waterpurifier in Highpool?
I read somewhere there is an engine that you can use on the car in the Railnomads camp or the purifier in Highpool.
Cant find it anywhere tho..

I'd take a look around somewhere near the merchant in Highpool, who removed the engine from the water purifier ... ;)

Huh. I'd just assumed it was a reference to the first game.

If you install the engine you're also going to need someone with a decent amount of Mechanical Repair for what comes next.

Yes you can, the engine should be near the trader's desk. You can put it in without any mechanical repair skill...but then it will start filling the room with fumes which makes the trader angry. After that you can fix it with mechanical repair. I believe it gives you exp and extra swing in the incoming voting for a new mayor.

Seems like a small glitch, but the water purifier in highpool cannot be repaired using the usual right click menu when examining it. I have noticed this happen in a few other places also such as the robot corpse in the sewer tunnels.

To repair the water purifier:
1) pick up the engine
2) open inventory and select use on the engine then select the water purifier
3) now that the water purifier is blowing smoke, click on the mechanical repair skill in your characters skill list in the bottom left corner of the screen. This is the important detail as right clicking to examine the purifier does not bring up the repair option.
4) after selecting the character's repair skill, your cursor will change and you can hover over the purifier to see the % chance, and click to attempt the repair
