If she does it will be all over (but the crying).


Log her in on a new account. Saves (hurrdurr) running into that potential issue.

I love the fact that the robot says my characters name out loud even though I named him myself

It's taken me a good 8 hours of gameplay, but I think I've finally got my head around the crafting and perk system. Loving it so far.

I've stuck with keyboard and mouse but yeah, the UI is a disgrace.

Hopefully it gets modded soon.

i couldn't bring myself to go all out controller in the end, just feels so wrong. sticking to kb&m for general pew pew gameplay and controller for work bench related matters. i genuinely couldn't figure out how to navigate the work bench using kb&m :lol:

built myself a wee home now with storage crates. only done about 5 quests total yyet i've unlocked and achievement for creating 100 workshop items... wasn't exaggerating when i said it took me a while to understand the crafting side of the game.

few easy tweaks here to fix some of the nonsense. console fov and built in mouse accel were a couple of my biggest complaints. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=551069501&tscn=1447077828

I'm struggling with it. I went to the nearby town after starting and sorted that (spoiler avoidance) and got my town. The spent the next hour or two trying to figure out wtf was going on. Is 1 worker enough to farm ALL food, or do I need to assign someone to each food thing I place (and it took me ages to figure out how to get seeds!)? Do I need turrets yet? (well it's too late, because I made 2) Is it OK to salvage a load of stuff in your own town?

I think I need to commit a lot more time to this, but they probably shouldn't have giuven you a town so early. It's a big distraction.

And yeah, the UI is cancer. I remember they did the same thing with Skyrim, knowing that a modder would fix it for them

I have to admit, I am probably further along in this game after playing it yesterday than I ever got in Fallout 3. I basically got to the supermarket right at the start of FO3 and then went off and did my own thing for a few hours, then restarted. Again and again and again. On the plus side, lots of people complaining that this is just more of the same, and I don't really know the old game well enough to be bothered by that. I actually really like it.

My main thoughts:

  • It seems like most of the missions so far are just: "Oh, X is in trouble. Go and kill some bad guys that are threatening X." I think I will head to Diamond City soon in the hope of something different.
  • I have absolutely no idea what is going on with the settlement building. All I know is that I need "circuitry" to do anything, and I don't have it. It's basically a less accessible version of Fallout Shelter.
  • Making my own character able to speak has added a lot, and I love the details, like the robots not figuring out what has gone on. I have nerfed my own character by making him a charming nerd though, and I'm having to waste a lot of perks on pumping up the Ability stats.
  • As far as I can see, my weapons don't detioriate any more. Does this mean that there is absolutely no point in carrying more than one of each gun?

That's another thing, weapons. What do I do with the extra 'versions' of a weapon I have? as it stands at the moment my inventory is filling up mega quick

Got a couple of hours into this last night and was liking it but not enough to really have an opinion. Got woken up at 4am this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so spent some pre-work hours on it and I am loving it now. Decided to just walk in various directions which did result in a couple of deaths (found a locked door which I broke in to only to have 7 bandits standing waiting for me) and found a few things. Managed to find Diamond City without really looking for it. More exploring than quests so far but I'll look more into that tonight.

I'm just storing all my extra weapons at home until I find a trader to sell stuff to. I spent 9 of my SPECIAL points on intelligence in hopes of making combat more of a challenge, unfortunately that means my carry weght is shit so I fill up pretty much every time I go anywhere, which is becomming a bit annoying.

As for clearing the town, I scrapped everything other than the cooking station, workshop etc. Speak to Sturge (think that's his name) and he'll give you mini quests relating to the towns water, food and security.

Sort of getting my head around the workshop thing, but powering stuff is a pain in the arse. I can see good settlements taking loads of pre-design and thought.

Is there ever a reason NOT to be in your power armour? Absorb way more damage, take no fall damage, carry more shit, customize it with red flames and look a fucking boss. Is the game pretty designed that you will allways be using it? It's hard to see a downside.

Really enjoying it so far. I seem to have had the same experience as the rest of you with regards to crafting and stuff... started off looking overwhelming, but now I'm getting my head around it I'm finding it quite useful. I managed to turn a pretty poor rifle into a pretty deadly sniper rifle earlier.

Though yeah, I only put 3 into Strength so I'm now finding that my inventory is getting full way too often. I keep on unloading as much as I can onto Codsworth but it's getting pretty annoying needing to do it over and over again.

There are only a limited number of the power core things that power those suits in the world, once they're gone, they're gone, and you can no longer use power armour at all. I do hope you've not been burning through them on relatively easy parts when you should be saving them for trickier bits :eek: I intend to keep my power armour stored away and only use it as an absolute last resort, for a particularly hard mission or whatever.

I didn't use it at all, but then I got stuck at Cortege Plant or something, full of raiders and turrets. I found it really hard, so went and got my armour and absolutely breezed it. I think I've got through 1.5 power core things so far, but I'm not using my armour at the moment. Thanks for the heads up about not putting on willy nilly though, come to think of it I have only found 2 power cores so far!

Btw you reached Diamond City yet? Game seems to really open up then. And yao guai or whatever they are are fucking nails, avoid the map icon that looks like a caravan on the way. Fuck those things

I just passed through Diamond City on my way to my last quest. Fucking bedlam init :lol: Gunshots, mutants and raiders everywhere. Also stumbled upon 1 of those Yao Guai, shot at it naturally... big ol' pile of nope those things.

Finally found a trader earlier and sold on most of my unwanted weapons and armour. Sitting at around 2 thousand caps atm I think. Takes traders 2 days to get more caps, for anyone wondering.

Yeah there's fuck loads of traders in DC. Some of them sell some killer items, like 14,000 worth of torso armour and special weapons. I need a loan.

And is it me or are they a lot more stingy with bobby pin drops here than in the past? Maybe I've just got unlucky with drops, but I've had to leave some locked doors and boxes because I just don't have any bobby pins. Kinda annoying

I didn't hang around long in DC, didn't really find anything. Only had pipe rifle ammo and some molotovs with me so didn't fancy squaring up to anything. Just been fast travelling between Sanctuary and the robot garden place to sell things for the last hour or so. I feel a bit underpowered atm tbh.

Weird. I've had 20 something bobby pins on me since the first couple hours of gameplay. Haven't found them in too many places but when i do it's generally a stash of 5+. Probably worth quicksaving before you pick if you're low on pins.

The thing is I nail the locks on the first or 2nd go, I've just not seen any pins drop, like, anywhere. Must just be unlucky.

Oh by the way, outside DC, where you saw the fight between caravan guards and super-mutants, the entrance to DC is literally just round the corner. You can probably run straight past them and enter the city if you don't want to fight them (the guards aren't hostile). I just helped the guards with my pipe rifle, kept well back and LOS'd the mutants if they shot at me, the guards sorted most of it, I just tried to leach the last hits :emb:

I thought that plant really knocked things up a notch as well. I walked through a door on to a stairway, took a potshot at the nearest guy and immediately had seven bad guys using me for target practise and explosives testing. Dogmeat was great at blocking the door/my escape as well, so I died. Again and again and again. Then I hit upon a great strategy of going in, firing randomly, and letting two or three raiders follow me outside to be picked off.

Those mutant things are quick as well, aren't they. Bloody hell.

Thanks for the help, veteran Fallout'ers.

Seriously though where can I find this circuitry scrap that I'm apparently desperate for?

you need copper for electrical shiz. while you're in the workshop you can mark items that you need parts for so that when you're out and about anything containing that part will be highlighted for pick up. if it's wires you're on about then i don't think you need anything, you can just highlight the generator or whatever and select the wiring option then connect it.

Hot plates and any old electronic items usually give circuits

I've still not actually been to Diamond City yet, and I think I may wait before I do...

I've only got this game until I'm off on holiday on Friday, and it's kind of my intention to leave the main story where it is until I get back and just stick to side quests for now. And then I'll go and make sure I stay fucking focused on completing the bastard thing... I never got around to the main quest on New Vegas (despite 2 attempts) or Skyrim because I kept getting fucking buried beneath side quests and doing them instead. So when I get back, fuck everybody else and the help they need, it's full steam ahead on the main quest until it's done!

Also, fuck, Codsworth has a limit to how much he can carry. I can currently carry 230 of weight (plus another 10 because I gave some armour pockets, so 240 in total) and all of the guns/ammo/items I want with me at any given time weight a combined 200... god damn it. Seriously considering spending perk points on Strength...

Probably spent about 70% of my playtime in the workshop.

Its only getting worse as I unlock new settlements too.

There seems to be a lot less friendly people in the Commonwealth, or I'm just an expert at finding raider camps.

Also joined some sort of cult who have taken all my things and can't work out how to get them back.

Aye, managed to clear it last night. Stayed well away on a nearby hill with a long range weapon to clear the outside, not so bad once you get inside. There's 2 bodies on the bridge near the plant you should loot if you haven't already.

I get hit by a rocket and it's goodnight vienna. Also don't have enough dps to bring down the suicide one in time. I'll re-visit it later after a few more levels :lol:
