        So having romanced Piper, I was hoping since Bethesda seems to be going "Mass Effect" with dialogue and character interaction I was hoping that would extend to physical interaction with romanced companions, even a simple hug, kiss, or something would have sufficed. But no...I don't know why I expected as much...

    I wish you could scrap power armor frames. I'm up to four of the things now and I'm sure there are plenty more to be found.

    That's a funny way to spell Piper. We all know we can't fuck robots.
    Fisto proved you wrong 4 years ago.

    This is something mods will definitely fix.

    So Deacon won't shut up about    me reading his recall code, something I didn't and don't want to do, I answer him and the next time I try to talk to him he asks me about it again   
    Will I ever be able to talk to him normally again (thoughts/relationship)? I don't want to google    Deacon recall code    because that sounds like it could spoil the entire faction questline

    After messing about with the post-apocalypse char-gen, i eventually settled for just keeping my dude exactly the same as he was before the bombs fell, only now there's mud all over him.




    I also spent ages digging up all of the tattoo mags, i was really looking forward to getting my dude some ink- but i gotta say im pretty disappointed. there were only like five of them in the end, and all but two of them totally sucked.

    Thing is, I didn't find any of the companions cool enough to take with me. New Vegas had Boone who was almost worthwhile, but there's no strictly military cool-headed baller to tag along with this time around -- which is what I tend to pick. Dogmeat, robots, random journalists, eeeh, not my thing.

    On the other hand, I managed to make a raider base allllll the way up north (called Outpost somethingsomething I can't remember) into a fortified military establishment. Barbed wire fences everywhere, every guard has combat armor and army clothes, assault rifles, artillery and well sustainable food and water. Plus eighteen spotlights and a handful of turrets. Some dogs and a bandit tried running in through the entrance.

    Took about three and a half seconds for the encounter to end. My personal fortress ain't nothing to fuck with.
    Base building can be fun after all -- such a shame that I can't make the place larger, though.

       So apparently the railroad hates me after doing one mission with the Institute (reclaim the synth near the Nordhagen Farm settlement). Is there anyway to win back their friendship? Also are the Brotherhood and Institute the only factions I can side with in the story? I thought the Minutemen would be the neutral choice but working with them doesn't seem to be going anywhere story-wise. The only reason I even worked with the Institute as all was because I thought I would be able to eventually tell Shaun to fuck off with the brainwashing. Don't tell me this is another Fallout 3 "pick good guy or bad guy" scenario. I can't fucking stand either faction.   



    I guess this will do for the castle entrance.

    are there any ways to lower graphics past minimum in the launcher?

    playing with a GTX 560 sucks and i cant afford a new gfx card (20 sometimes sub 20 fps in firefights, usually 23-35fps average)

    and i really dont want to play below 1080p since i play borderless and if i alt tab or go into another window on my multi monitor while in fullscreen it completely messes the resolution

    Under the floors section in wooden structures. (First tab from the main workshop menu)

    There is a "Shack Foundation" floor. It's a little heavy cost wise on concrete. But totally worth it. I hope my explanation was sufficient.

    Edited:



    The back of my main entrance. Also using rugs to allow me to clip walls and stuff together is fantastic.

    Does power armor amplify radiation or something? Seems like every time a normal feral ghoul takes a swipe at me the rad meter instantly pegs for several seconds and I have to keep using radaways every few seconds because stimpaks stopped working due to the rads.

    Ghouls always add Rads to you when they hit you. But for me PA's lower the amount drastically.

    so settlers cant use stairs or-

    need to know before I make the mega cool shit on top of Red Rocket

    tested this via trying to command my companion to use them, but nothing.
    Maybe if you're really good with crafting, but otherwise just use the stairs in the Wood -> Floors, NPC's can and will use those.

    But yeah, kinda hard to get NPC's on top of Red Rocket I imagine.

    Sometimes normal doorways bug out, where my Codsworth could navigate through entire house, but couldn't exit it (even though it entered it) I fixed it by building new doorway (from metal into wooden)

    Good fucking question.

    If I'm not completely wrong, you can't even remove settlers from their jobs. You can assign them a new one, but I think the previous job (food, or salvage table, or w/e) is still going to be taken care of..? (In a way, sharing their duties)

    But I'm not too in-depth or sure! Haven't even got new settlers yet, just building stuff in Sanctuary until I'm ready to hook a wire into the recruitment radio mast. I once did, for testing purposes.

    I haven't kept up with the thread's past 3000 or so posts because I've just been on a cycle of Sleep, Work, Fallout, repeat, but I remember hearing some bullshit about the map being smaller than the previous games.

    Absolutely not true, and even if technically it's dimensions are, half of all the buildings I come across have some interior, either open or through a door. In Fallout 3 and New Vegas you might find 1/8 buildings actually have an inside.

    Also NO RUBBLE filler. D.C. was like 70% rubble while Boston is open. I also can't wait to see another quest comparison picture, because Fallout 4 has to have more quests than New Vegas, especially counting all of the unmarked quests like Barney's in Salem.

    I've got 30 hours, I've barely done any sidequests, I haven't even explored the bottom half of the map and I've barely dipped a toe into the north east Salem part. I've barely spent any time with settlements either. I can see myself putting 150 hours into this unmodded.

    I tried to make my character look Asian but I dunno, It's harder than I thought even with this different character creator.

    Tried messing around with it more using the console command. Does she at least look a little better or still "nothing but funny and disagree ratings ugly"?





    Edit: Well there's my answer
    FYI, she looks like Megan Fox.
