    My apologies, I've a disposition for verbosity and also haven't interacted across a message board in at least 15 years, I thought I was doing just that (excepting my previous two posts) but I'll separate my sentences more frequently for readability. Thank you for the advice.

    Back then I bothered to look a bit more on design decisions and mechanics, it was obvious how this game had many last minute changes to "make it more easy accessable". Sad.
    They put in all those low output windmills... and then just slapped low cost gas powered ones in. That need no gas.
    Even worse with turrets. All those vise style turrets, requiring materials in masses to build, and need to be powered. I assume they intended for players to use a switch to redirect the limited power from water to defense during an attack. Good idea.
    But then "someone" decided to put in two simpler turrets in that require no power at all and can be built from a lighter, a bucket, a hotplate, a watch and a scanner. No engine, gun, bullets or gas needed. "It just works!"
    VATS was pretty much abandoned after a few levels, guns not balanced for it or outright unusable, because "someone" decided it's not needed anymore, it's a game about powerarmor now.
    Both bossfights assume you wear one, otherwise it's "Blablabla, now you die", stealthboy. Have fun eating all that dmg in your face player.
    Or how the "combat rifle", the probably most used weapon, is just a 10 min hideous kitbash out of existing gun model parts. Seriously?

    I could go on forever how there are so many signs of potential that got choked off, when Todd decided that their target audience is only one lost braincell away from taking a dump in their own bed, so the game needed to be retailored accordingly. Sad.

    Always love the dumb hyperbole that social media morons use. I get it, you liked it, but jesus, everyone wants it to be changing lives, or the bestest thing evar...
    People can like shit games/movies and hate good games/movies. But making it "life changing" shows how vapid this culture is.

    If this is truly the thing that changed your life lady, then I feel bad for you.
    That a shit game convinced you to make more shit games in life.
    Why did you feel the need to punish others who have never done you any wrong?

    Uh, did you guys read the full message? After playing Skyrim she liked it enough to want to work at Bethesda and she managed to get a job there as a community manager (which is often kind of an entry job). Getting into an industry you like and weren't into before does sound a little bit more "life changing" than simply liking a game.

    So I started this game because it came with my Xbox pass I got for 1 euro aaaand I play a white man with a white wife. Yet, our baby is clearly black! There appears to be no explanation of that in the game so I am confused. Is the PC in this game a cuckold?

    All I can say is that after Skyrim, and Boston I hope the next big Bethesda game has nice weather.

    Wait, it's in space. Space is cold right?

    It's got built in temperature control. Just vary your distance to the nearest star to adjust temperature.

    Turrets are useless sin general because settlers are invincible. Arm these niggas with pipes and watch them go zombie on some super mutants. (unless all the turrets die, in which case the settlers surrender but you can just put one in a box)

    Also is there a no exponential leveling mod yet? Like the one that witcher 3 got.

    Hey by the way, we made an all new faction and the opposing faction is the bland evil faction that should have only been in one game but whatever slam here too. Gee, I wonder who will be the obvious good guys in this mod? I know it's just a mod team working for free but this point just makes it even less interesting to want to try the mod out. You've already made a new faction, why use the de facto evil guys™ of Fallout in opposition to them? That's not what makes factions interesting to see and consider joining. Freedom and Duty in STALKER are great because they both have noble causes but they're diametrically opposed with them. One wants to protect the world from the dangers of the Zone and the other believes it's a new wonder that should be open to anyone brave enough to venture.

    This will likely be the Enclave once again wants to wipe out all "mutant" humans (except not you because you're allowed to join) even if their DNA is 0.5% off of not being of their incestual gene pool and the good guys will be the "we're not those fuckers" tagline.

    For some time now Bethesda Fallout fans have been wanting to 'redeem' the Enclave, turn them into a viable option for the future.
    I think this idea mostly comes because the Encalve 'look cool' (my slang is probably not up to date), have power armor and laser weapons and advanced tech.
    And because they are descended from the pre-war government, that that gives them a legitimate claim to leadership.
    Apparently these fans seem to forget that the pre-war government was a republic with elected representatives by the people, and not hereditary. Just because the Enclave are descended of the America of old, that doesn't make them represent the America, even if the US has fallen, of today.

    Anyway, in order to make the Enclave more 'viable', fans seem to tone them down a bit, make the more 'cuddly' and accepting of outsiders, which contradicts Fallout 2.
    But how many of them played Fallout 2?
    And remember, lore must be 'alive' so it can be changed and improved. (read: so it can be shit on)

    Yeah these are usually my issues as well with Enclave simps.

    They're not a viable faction and they should have only been a major faction in Fallout 2. Afterwards, some remnants were fine. Brotherhood of Steel too.
