@ Zitt ive always followed your posts and appreciate what you have to offer. I understand 100% what you are saying. Its true, all of the bad press/ descisions have led to a bad rollout.
But Fallout is my videogame heroin. I have played 100’s if not thousands of games in my gaming career. I have completed only a few of those games. I have completed evey fo game multiple times. I even became friends with a fo2 dev when my college buddy married him in eary 2000’s. Also they tend to realese the games on or around my birthday since fallout 3. I even have a pretty sick design in my head for a fallout inspired full sleeve tattoo. I could go on and on...
I sunk over 400 hours into the survival mode of fo4 in which:
You cant fast travel. You can only save via sleeping in beds. You have to eat and drink to stay alive. Weight of your stuff matters immensly. Enemies are all over powered.
It really got me ready for fo76
Get on reddit /fo76 as there is so much info on the game. Yes there is alot of sad posts, and fanboy bullshit on there, but lotsa helpful psa tips.
Find a loop to lvl and loot. I start at the managomah powerplant and capture it if its open. Then i defend the camp quest, then i head north to the lil town, clear it, then south to the motel which usually is filled with high lvl ghouls. Then back to the power plant to scrap it all.
I spend my caps on plans only. Certain plans can only be bought at particular levels. The handmade(ak47) plan can only be had tween lvl 15-20. The lever action rifle can only be got between lvl25-40
There are 5 factions in the game each with their own vendor. Find watoga vendor on waaay east side of map. Find the grafton vendor. Find the whitesprings vendor inside the building basement(he has the lever action plans) Each of the 5 should have different plans for you.
See you out there!
