    Crafting in what sense? You mean the gun mods? Oh, they still matter a ton, they just don't affect damage to anywhere near the same level; their primary concern is increasing range, accuracy, clip size, recoil (which is really strong on the big guns) or fire rate. He introduced a ton of new ammo types as well, which offer options to boost damage in that way; for example, you can equip a 10mm pistol with a .44 receiver to boost damage, but lower clip size.

    Other things I like about it:

    - Your running speed going forward is significantly faster, but also significantly slower going backwards, and when overencumbered on survival, you don't take damage but take -20 to agility. It can make for some nerve-wracking trips when hauling loot to a base.
    - Lockpicking has gone back to Skyrim-style; you can attempt to pick any lock you find, but it's really difficult (even on novice) without getting perks and bobby pins are tough to find.
    - If you have the requisite skill level, there's no terminal minigame, you just pick the correct password.
    - Items have a tag that easily sort them by style (aid, chem, food, drink, nuka, etc.)
    - Each point of strength is worth 25 pounds of extra equipment, and power armor boosts your strength by 10.

    I wouldn't be against crafting inFO4 if there were a blueprint system and there were mats that were more rare that were essential to crafting.

    I've enjoyed bethesdas work over the years. Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3 are all games that would make my top 20 list I'd imagine if I made one. Skyrim started a trend that started marginalizing exploration in these games and with so much freedom to be had I feel like exploration should be at the forefront.

    I have other issues with FO4 from a story/side quest perspective but I coulda looked past those issues if it were more enjoyable for me just to tear off and immerse myself in the world. I understand that the popularity of these games have caused Bethesda to dumb it down a bit but as a long time fan, the past two games aren't what I came to enjoy.

    I'm also very picky about video game quality in my old age. I'm very hard to please unless the person that makes the game is named Hidetaka Miyazaki

    One of the highest levels of praise I can level towards this mod, when used in conjunction with any kind of mortal settlers mod, is that it creates a sense of ownership and pride in how you put settlements together. That first enemy raid I mentioned, where every settler in Tenpines Bluff was killed, actually made me feel bad because I wasn't able to create defenses suitable for them. You reevaluate how you approach that aspect of the game and actually give a crap about setting up a living, breathing town instead of just using it as a place to store gear or play the Sims. Because NPCs use ammo and everybody's HP is so low, I work to provide good armor and guns for my guys. I actually have to try and create real, strategically advantageous walls instead of just slapping together junk fences. Turrets need to be positioned all over the settlement instead of just at the entrance area to maximize coverage. It's actually pretty neat because you can make a turret for every ammo type in the game, and some can be crafted with the gun that uses it (laser and Institute pistols/rifles are one example). You're not just "the General", you're THE FUCKING GENERAL and there's a much greater level of strategy and accomplishment involved in taking the Commonwealth back one settlement at a time. I tend to prefer Minutemen playthroughs generally, but with this it takes on much greater significance and I actually feel worthy of being its leader.

    Every time I read this thread I'm all "damn I need to load this back up and finally finish the story mode". Then I'm like "well shit I need to finish skyrim too". Then I put destiny in and talk to all my destiny friends while running around with no strategy and shooting things.

    At level 30 now (with probably close to 100 hours put in) and still haven't even gotten Nick Valentine yet. I'm nearly to the point where I can comfortably develop the resources necessary to buy shipments of gun powder to craft the really powerful turrets (.50 cal and laser cannon), at which point I can shore up some of the weaker settlements against raids. Only Sanctuary, The Castle, the Slog, Tenpines Bluff and a couple others have the defense/city layout to withstand the big raids at the moment, and a big part of that is they've survived a couple already, so they're the best equipped of all the the settlements.

    Oh, and bloodbugs and stingwings can go fuck themselves, that poison is not to be messed with on this mod.

    got the Game of the Year edition on Prime for pretty cheap last week. Hopefully all the glitches and performance issues have been fixed by now?

    Karl Hungus I should add that those are the PS4 ones. If you’re on PC or XB1 you’ll have a much better selection
