To complete a milestone, I had to bring back 100 Uranium ore to the HUB. I prepared with a suit and a gazillion iodine filters, harvested the amount to my backpack and jumped in my Explorer and put the pedal to the metal, hoping I would make it home before turning into a green zombie or something else less living... :)
To my surprise I did not get any radiation damage at all, nor was any filters used while in the vehicle, even though the radiation warning was beeping like crazy.
Is this how it's supposed to work? I was prepared that my filters would be consumed while driving. And I was also expecting that when I got out of the vehicle, the amount of filters would have decreased. But none of this happened.
On a side note, but perhaps a little bit related, I've also noticed that having the gas mask equipped while driving a vehicle, doesn't protect me from poison. So mechanics around equipment WHILE driving might be of interest to look into a little bit?
