I'm not an expert in this, so I asked the AI about it.

    Congrats, you now know less than you did before!

      So AI did wrong?

      You asked a text-prediction algorithm that can't "know" things, about a thing. It's going to get it wrong.

      Of course, I already knew AI can do a lot of mistakes. I didn't say the AI gave me all the right answer. I just wanted to understand the infamous "flying body glitch" in Fallout 3. If you know about this, tell me why it occurs. That's all I want to understand and that's why I'm digging into this.

      Which flying body glitch? The only one I know about is the one where the bodies stretch and fly around really fast. That one is caused by the body hitting the ground right in between the checks that Havok does, or whatever you would call them.

      OK. I will explain about this because you are interested. There is a fast tavel system (FTS) in FO3. However, sometimes I felt the FTS is not enough. So I began to use. Set timescale to 10 ~ 30. This console command is highly advantageous for short(&medium)-distance rapid movement. Then I began to see these strange glitches. Then another one day, I saw the same glitch even when I didn't use the console command. Of course, if you don't use the console command, this rarely occurs but it surely occurs because I saw it. Then another day in the past, I found on the internet that there are other people saw the same glitches. Since witnessing that glitch, I often find myself pondering about it. Thoughts like, “What causes such random behavior?” frequently cross my mind. I have my own theory, but I cannot be certain. Therefore, I’ve started delving deeper into this phenomenon. A mere theory won’t suffice; I need solid evidence or solid method to crack this.

      I haven't check yet but I guess situation is the same in FNV. There is also a YouTube video on this. I'm not the owner of the YouTube channel. I just found there are people who saw the exact same glitch. 

      Edit: If you use higher value in the CC, I'm pretty sure this will occur much more oftenly. Monster, humans alike They fly randomly.

      You broke the game by messing with the timescale, that's what happened. What does that have to do with SSE?

      Because I want to know whether similar glitches occur in SSE? And, like you said, I messed it with timescale. But it is true that I saw this glitch even when I played a new game without using any console commands. Anyway, I have my own theory about this. I have a peculair curiosity on these kind of things.

      If you want to know if it affects SSE, why aren't you asking the SSE nexus?

      Because I'm currently actively engaging in these community? There was no intention of comparing two games or two communities. I love both games & both communities.
      1. The glitch occured in FO3. So I thought this is a good place to share the AI's answers.
      2. SSE case is just for comparison. What I'm interested in is 'randomly flying body glitch' in FO3. 
      3. And another reason is that I have a copy of SSE in Steam Library, but I still haven't had enough time to play it. 

      I hope there's no further misunderunderstanding on this matter.

      If you say so, I will believe so because you are one of the most respected authors in this community. I also understand AIs sometimes do a lot of mistakes. So would you kindly tell me what is wrong and right here? I just want to learn.

      Have you ever heard about randomly flying body glitch? I think you already know this. Do you know what causes this? I am digging into this because I want to understand the mechanism of randomly flying body glitch. Somehow I think the AI gave me an answer on this matter.

      In computer science, random is not just random. Sometimes this random behavior is caused by hardware or cosmic rays but this 'randomly flying body' glitch occurs only in special situation. This is quite special random behavior. It's not just random. This is what I want to understand.

      Sorry, I'm not an AI, I can't speculate on things I have no idea about, and look serious while at it.

      At least you are honest to yourself. This explains why you became one of the most respected authors in this community. And thanks for adding comments to a noob like me.
