FS#22150 - Several security terminals lack tapedrives, rendering the Total Hack tapes useless

A number of computer terminals have no holotape drives, rendering the Total Hack holotapes useless in tampering with the security devices (Protectrons, searchlights, turrets) attached to it.

So far, the following have been identified:

* Curator Given’s terminal in the Boston Public Library controlling some turrets and protectrons (TERM:00100D9B)
* A terminal in HalluciGen controlling a pair of Protectrons (TERM:000AF8BB)
* The sergeant’s terminal in BADTFL controlling a turret (the one over the lockup pinning down raiders) (TERM:000FEBAD)
* Two identical terminals at Hub City Auto Wreckers, the Gunner compound to the north of Finch Farm, that also control the bridge crane thing (TERM:00124266)
* A terminal right past the decon arch hallway at Med Tek controlling a pair of turrets (TERM:00100D50)
* The cell block control terminal in the Med Tek basement (TERM:00100EBB)
* A wall terminal right next to (and locking) the basement lab in Med Tek Labs (TERM:00101A86)
* A terminal inside the Boston Police Rationing Site warehouse with an attached protectron (TERM:00099DBB)

* DN151_ExteriorTerminal “Grounds Terminal” [TERM:00129F9B] Controls a single spotlight on the exterior of Weston Water Treatment Plant. Missing keyword linkage to second spotlight ([REFR:0019FA72] (places SpotLightDetect01 [ACTI:0009F983] in GRUP Cell Persistent Children of [CELL:00018AA2] (in Commonwealth “Commonwealth” [WRLD:0000003C]) at -16,-1)) also fixed.
* DN151_TerminalFacilities “Facilities Terminal” [TERM:0019DFBD] controlling ten(!) wall turrets inside the Weston Water Treatment Plant
* DN028_LightsTerminal “Terminal” [TERM:0019A7A7] Used twice in D.B. Technical High School, once to control a turret and another to control a spotlight.
* DN059_CollegeSquareStationProtectronWallTerminal “Security Terminal” [TERM:001073B9] Used twice in the College Square metro to control the same two Protectrons.

* ADV08_Vim_Terminal_BrewingProtectron “Vim Brewing Terminal” [TERM:03027010] Used in the Vim! Pop Factory in Far Harbor DLC, controls a Protectron.

* BoS_DN084_Terminal_MassFusionMRAnalyst “Analyst’s Terminal” [TERM:0014EEEC] in Mass Fusion basement, controls protectrons.
* BoS_DN084_Terminal_MassFusionMRPrototype “Prototype Lab Terminal” [TERM:0014EF85] in Mass Fusion basement, controls protectrons.
* BoS_DN084_Terminal_MassFusionMRAttendant “Attendant’s Terminal” [TERM:0014EFCE] in Mass Fusion basement, controls protectrons.

In the CK, simply checking “Has Holodisk” on the Terminal form objects in question and leaving the selection dropdown blank appears to make a terminal have an empty holodisk drive (as opposed to no holodisk drive). A recent developer release of FO4Edit available on the xEdit GitHub repository properly identifies the subrecord now as well. Null means no holodrive, 0 means empty holodrive, 1 means full holodrive (which also unlocks a referred item subrecord below it).

I have since found two other terminals linked to security hardware that lacked a tapedrive and mooted the point of the Total Hack holotapes; one in the HalluciGen building linked to a pair of docked protectrons in the same room, and the sergeant's terminal in the BADTFL office, linked to a laser turret over the evidence lockup.

All three are corrected in the following plugin. This also proved helpful in identifying what subrecords control holodrive functionality on terminals when viewing the records in FO4Edit.

Just found a fourth terminal, the Gunner compound just north of Finch Farm has a holodrive-less security controller terminal tied to turrets and spotlights. Ignore the plugin in my first reply, use this one instead:

And now we're up to #5. This one is the security terminal right past the decon archways in the Med Tek research building.

Previous plugins deleted from comments. Latest one now attached on main article.

MadCat221 commented on March 31 2017 02:43 AM

Aaaand #6 so soon after finding #5. This one is the cell block control terminal in the Med Tek basement. Updated OP attached file.

MadCat221 commented on March 31 2017 06:42 AM

Med Tek trifecta complete; the one locking the lab where the cure that MacCready seeks has turret linkages but no holodrive.

MadCat221 commented on April 03 2017 04:12 AM

And now, the Boston Police Rationing Site has a terminal with no holodrive hooked up to a protectron.

DN151_ExteriorTerminal "Grounds Terminal" [TERM:00129F9B]
Controls a single spotlight on top of the Weston Water Treatment plant with ref ID 0019FA72. In addition to the control terminal being driveless, there's a second spotlight (ref 0019FA6F) right next to the linked one that isn't controlled by the terminal, and the first spotlight has a presumably invalid link to an xmarker for some reason, which was probably supposed to be a link to the other spotlight.

DN151_TerminalFacilities "Facilities Terminal" [TERM:0019DFBD]
More interesting, and this one has always been the most irritating instance of this issue in the game for me, this driveless terminal controls ten(!) turrets.

Updated module attached to main article for this ticket with EyeDeck's four findings.

Found three more in the Mass Fusion building basement. Details in the main ticket description.
