This is a great game and all, but I wish that (like other RPGs) there were descriptions provided for weapons/items/armor/etc.. It'd be great to be able to fill out a bit of history on those unique weapons, and how they got their name. I've been modding all the weapons in the game to my liking and changing their names as I go and the whole time I've been wanting to provide some backdrop on a particular variety of weapon (Wattz 1000 laser pistol, for example) but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this that I can find. Does anyone have any idea if this is possible or not?

Just feels like it would help with the immersion factor.

well, i have one idea for you, but it's not exactly what you wanted
basically, you can't add history to the display in the pipboy (at least not that i know of)
however, if you want the history so much, you could just make a note, and place the notes near the weapons, and then after you pick up the note, you'll be able to read it, whenever you want to

it's not like in other RPGs, but then again, it's not designed to have this
now, i don't know which RPG games you had in mind when thinking about this, but in FO3 or even Oblivion, these options never existed
the only game that i could think of, that is not a hack n' slash game (at least not completely one) and not an MMO game, is Dragon Age
but then again, it's not much of an RPG game (it is more of a hack n' slash in terms of gameplay and all)

can't think of a better system for this, as it wasn't designed with such an idea in mind

well, it is possible, but to make it serious would require some work

basically, the option that i had in mind is to replace the image of the item, with the description
this basically means creating an image of the description (which would have to be rather short)

i can't remember which mod i had in FO3, but it made the pipboy screen bigger, so you would see the picture much better and bigger, so if something like this would be implemented, it would be possible to actually read from the image\description

i can't think of anything other than this or the notes option (at least not without scripting the item or something)
