Fallout 76

I do not hate or like this game. I like Fallout franchise but I can't imagine Fallout 76 as multiplayer game. I mean it is unimmersive for me.

That's fine. There's immersive things and unimmersive things about it. 

 

To me it is interesting that a state so besieged by automation was then inflicted by this extinction event. However I understand if the cast of characters was an appeal than it's not the story for you. 

 

I groan that the BoS is here. Any military would form it's own organization of the government failed, it didn't need the branding.

 

Any governing body would seek power and or isolation, it didn't need to be called the enclave. 

 

The fact that almost every weapon and (non-human) enemy from fallout 4 and it's dlcs are here is ridiculous. I appreciate the diversity but it does break immersion. 

 

But still I enjoy the game, unimmersiveness, bugs and all.

Ironically, having people going around here and there, grouping up, shopping, trading, building in a human-extinct-post-apocalypse world apparently is more immersive than having flat-expression humans going about like wind up toys in a post-post apocalypse world. 

 

:sigh:

 

 

Overall, though? Immersion my ass.

They will have two phases of Event QoL change and the second one will eliminate killhogger concerns by allowing us to loot Legendary regardless the hit tag.

Fasnacht and meat week are going to join the public event roster where only one event at a time can run?

 

That's garbage. I forget how often fasnacht went off, maybe a 20min cool down but meat week went off every hour. So now if someone is running, say, a feed the people, it won't start?

That's what I'm getting it will be like but it sounds absurd.

I understand what they're doing. They're making it so that if there isn't competing events that people will more likely join the only one going on. It just shouldn't apply to limited time events like fasnacht and meat week. People.grind those events, at least until the rng broke them down. The idea of even further restricting their frequency is ridiculous. I sure hope meat week's companion event, prime cuts or whatever it's called isn't included. 

 

They should include meat week and fasnacht with nukes and encrypted. Events that send out notices but can't be cancelled by other events. 

 

On another topic my game is playing much better. I moved it from my external to my consoles.hard drive and that seemed to stop the up to 5 seconds of freezing. Maybe it's because it's easier to access on the internal drive or maybe moving it kind of de-fragged it but yay!

 

Edit. Well it was working. I started freezing again BUT I am downloading the free plus games so I'll wait until after those are finished before rendering a verdict.

FALLOUT 76: PATCH 13 NOTES – SEPTEMBER 10, 2019

We’re releasing Patch 13 today, which brings quality of life improvements to the event system with “Public Events.” It also adds the Morgantown Nuclear Winter map, design and balance changes, another large wave of bug fixes, and much more to Fallout 76. Read on to catch the patch notes for today’s update.


PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

  • Public Events: Select events are now “Public Events” and have received quality of life improvements, including free Fast Travel, no more dropped Junk on death in Adventure Mode, additional details on the Map, and more.
  • Design and Balance Updates: Energy Weapons now benefit from Armor Penetration, we’ve increased Vault 94 Mission XP rewards, the Purveyor has a few new Legendary Weapons in her arsenal, added we’ve added Small Backpacks, among other changes.
  • (Nuclear Winter) New Map - Morgantown: Continue your quest to become the Overseer of Vault 51 in Morgantown, featuring diverse terrain and new enemy creatures to overcome.
  • (Nuclear Winter) Global Matchmaking: We’ve implemented matchmaking improvements so that you can compete against Overseer Candidates from around the world.
  • (Nuclear Winter) New Limited-Time Rewards: We’ve added six new Morgantown-themed rewards you can unlock for free by completing Nuclear Winter Challenges!

PATCH VERSION

Download sizes for this update will be less than 7 GB for consoles and under 1.5 GB for PC.

  • PC: 1.2.3.9
  • PS4: 1.2.3.11
  • Xbox: 1.2.3.11

GENERAL UPDATES

Please Note: As part of today’s maintenance, we have deployed a fix for the Power Armor system that will unstack Chassis that were never meant to stack. This issue affected approximately 9% of Characters.

  • With this change, some players may notice the following upon initial login after the patch:
    • An additional empty Chassis may appear in the Character’s inventory, Stash, or both.
    • Power Armor may have been unequipped and moved into the Character’s inventory.

Additionally, we are still actively working to address the control lock that can occur when exiting Power Armor and plan to release a hotfix as soon as possible once we are confident that our fix will fully resolve this issue. Thank you for your continued patience.

PUBLIC EVENTS

The Events system has received quality of life improvements, based largely on community feedback, and select events have been reclassified as “Public Events.” These events feature new UI improvements, as well as several mechanics adjustments.

UI IMPROVEMENTS
  • Public Events feature a larger and more noticeable Map icon compared to normal events.
  • Highlighting an active Public Event on the Map now displays a dialog box that offers more details, such as:
    • How many players are currently participating.
    • How much time has passed since the event began.
    • A general difficulty rating, which is based more on the complexity of the event’s objectives than the difficulty of the enemies.
    • The type of gameplay offered by that event (Boss, Defense, etc.).
  • Public Event Loading Screens now display more detailed event descriptions, including tips for success.
  • When a Public Event begins, all players on that world who have reached level 7 and are not inside a Vault will receive an announcement near the top-left corner of the screen.
MECHANICS CHANGES
  • Fast Travel to Public Events is now free.
  • Players no longer drop Junk on death during Public Events in Adventure Mode.
    • Instead, the respawn timer will increase with each successive death, up to a max of 20 seconds.
  • Public Events feature a period of time that players can use to gather and coordinate before starting an event.
    • After entering the event area or Fast Traveling to the event, a timer will be displayed to show how long players have left to group up and make plans.
    • Players can complete a starting objective to begin an event early. For example, turning on the boilers during Tea Time.
    • If no players are in the event area and no one has completed the event’s starting objective when the timer expires, the event will shut down.
  • All Public Events, except Scorched Earth, Encryptid, and Seasonal Events, now share the same cooldown period from the start of the previous event until the next begins.

Visit our recent Public Events Preview article on Fallout.com to catch even more details about these changes, including a full list of Public Events.

DESIGN AND BALANCE UPDATES

  • Energy Weapons: Now benefit from Armor Penetration effects, including those provided by Perk Cards. For example, Energy Weapons with the Anti-Armor legendary attribute will now bypass Energy Resistance.
  • Hazmat Suits: Can now be crafted and a Hazmat Suit Recipe can now be purchased from some Train Station Vendors.
  • Mods: Bonus Anti-Scorched damage provided by Prime Receiver Mods has been increased from +25% to +35%.
  • Plans: The Protective Lining Plan for Casual Underarmor is now available for purchase from Vendors at Harper’s Ferry, Watoga, and The Whitespring if the player has already learned the recipe for Resistant Lining.
  • Small Backpacks: A new type of Backpack, the “Small Backpack” has been added in an effort to help more players acquire a Backpack earlier on during their Appalachian adventures.
    • A Plan to craft a Small Backpack can be found inside the Overseer’s Cache inside the Morgantown Airport Terminal. This Plan cannot be traded, sold, or dropped.
    • Small Backpacks have 50% of the carry capacity provided by a standard Backpack.
    • Small Backpacks can be equipped with all the same Mods as a standard Backpack.
    • Players can still learn to craft Standard Backpacks by completing Pioneer Scout Quests.
  • The Purveyor: When purchasing weapons from the Purveyor, players now have a chance to receive legendary versions of the following weapons (as long the player has already learned the recipes for the base weapon):
    • Sheepsquatch Club
    • Sheepsquatch Staff
    • Shepherds Crook
    • The Fixer
    • Bear Arm
  • Train Stations: Atomic Shop Access Points have been removed from Train Stations.
  • Vault 94 Rewards: The XP rewards for completing Vault 94 Missions have been increased to 1,600 (Novice), 1,800 (Standard), and 2,000 (Expert). Additionally, the Expert mid-quest XP reward has been increased to 1,000.
  • Vault 94 Rewards: The Drill has been removed as a possible legendary item reward when completing a Vault 94 Mission.
QUESTS AND EVENTS
  • Bucket List: The Personal Terminal, which can be unlocked for free in the Atomic Shop, now includes an entry that will lead players to the current location of the Tourist corpse.
    • This quality of life improvement will help players more easily begin the Bucket List Quest and obtain a ProSnap Deluxe Camera.

THE ATOMIC SHOP

Several new items have been added to the Atomic Shop with today’s update. Catch a brief description below and look out for today’s Atomic Shop article on Fallout.com for more details.

NEW UTILITY ITEMS
  • Collectron Station: After building a Collectron Station in C.A.M.P., a Collectron bot will search the nearby area for Scrap and other simple items. Collectron Stations can be unlocked in the Atomic Shop.
  • Refrigerators: After building a Refrigerator in C.A.M.P., players can assign food and drink items to it from the Stash to slow their spoilage rate by 50%. Refrigerators can be unlocked in the Atomic Shop.
NEW C.A.M.P. DÉCOR
  • Wallpapers: The Modify menu can now be used to apply a wide variety of Wallpapers to Walls in the player’s C.A.M.P. Wallpapers can be unlocked in the Atomic Shop.
EXISTING ITEM UPDATES
  • White Picket Fences: Players who already own the White Picket Fence set can now build alternate versions that snap together.

USER INTERFACE

  • Crafting Menus: Weapon and Armor Workbenches now display the number of Mods the player has unlocked so far for a given item, as well as the total number of mods available for that item.
  • Stash: Players will now receive a “Stash is full” message when attempting to assign items from their inventory to objects like Vending Machines or Display Cases while the Stash is full.

NUCLEAR WINTER UPDATES

NEW MAP: MORGANTOWN

  • ZAX has decided that the Vault 51 Overseer selection process needs a change of scenery! A new Morgantown map for Nuclear Winter is now available for play.
    • Morgantown features lots of opportunities for urban combat, and some of the highest peaks in Appalachia, giving Candidates a diverse battlefield to master.
    • Candidates can also take on new enemy creatures, including Assaultrons, the Grafton Monster, and Radscorpions.
  • All Nuclear Winter matches will temporarily be taking place in Morgantown to give Candidates a chance to master the new map.
  • Learn more about Morgantown by reading the latest transmission from ZAX on Fallout.com.
NEW LIMITED-TIME REWARDS!
  • In celebration of our new map, we’ve added six new Vault-Tec University themed rewards that you can unlock for free by completing Nuclear Winter Challenges for the next few weeks.
  • These rewards include new apparel and C.A.M.P. décor, so be sure to claim them before they’re no longer available!

GLOBAL MATCHMAKING

  • Matchmaking improvements for Nuclear Winter allow Candidates to take the battle to become Vault 51’s Overseer worldwide, and compete against players from around the globe.
    • This will also help players in all game regions find matches more quickly in cases where matchmaking would have otherwise taken additional time.

ITEMS

I'm more amazed at the side stuff this patch improved compared to the main things. Lol.

 

Also... Project Clean Appalachia

It's nice to see this is subtly advancing our timeline. Hopefully Wastelanders chapter is gapped by progress. It would be lame otherwise. 

 

FALLOUT 76 – PROJECT CLEAN APPALACHIA

You never want to have a dirty house when guests are visiting. The same should be said for when citizens begin returning to Appalachia with Wastelanders, coming this November. It’s dangerous out there, and you don’t want them to get spooked and leave right after they arrive. That’s why, for the next six weeks, we’ll be hosting a series of community events and challenges focused on cleaning up Appalachia. From September 10 through October 23, you’ll receive special rewards just for taking part in Project Clean Appalachia, including the return of fan-favorite events like Meat Week, new hairstyles and player icons. Community Challenges will also have stretch goals, which will have their own set of rewards. All stretch goal requirements will be unlocked as the challenges progress. In addition, there will be ongoing sales in the Atomic Shop, as well as a free weekly Atomic Shop item. Get the full schedule of events and challenges below.

You know I don't get out much...

 

Are you making reference to the latest patch bugging stuff up?

 

I played a bunch of hours yesterday and there is some odd things happening.  There was a whole lot of teleporting happening with creatures. 

 

The other weird thing was some large enemies would spawn a bunch of them and then somehow 'kinda' disappear leaving just 1 to battle.  I was in the swampy eary and I approached a gulper.  As I did it looked like 6 or 8 more fell from a nearby tree.  I was like "f*ck I'm gonna die", but they all seemed to disappear except the first one.

 

I had a similar example with yao guai.  They were spawning and following the path finding almost 1 after the other... Not even seeing me.

Are you making reference to the latest patch bugging stuff up?

Yes, except not a bug. It's intended change. Lol

Well...at least I was finally able to complete my polished metal armor set.  Took forever to get access to polished legs.  I swear it was broken...and when you unlock 'polished armor' it isn't like they tell you which piece you unlocked.   I've been unlocking polished armor forever.  Finally. 

 

I'll edit in a pic

^wouldn't want to take away your job. Lol

 

I know they said they fixed the power armor exit glitch. Still didn't make me pucker up any less when using it today. But so far 3 times entered, 3 times exited.

Well the summer nuclear winter updates fell flat. I guess maybe it's because the video games industry always outs forth weak offerings in summer. 

 

Looking forward to wastelanders with a little intrepidation. Worried how much it'll change Appalachia. 

 

Thinking hard about deleting one of my characters. I really think I want to try 2 builds with the games plus thing. 

 

I could start characters on my other psn profiles but they wouldn't have my atom shop purchases.

FALLOUT 76: INSIDE THE VAULT – MEAT WEEK BEGINS AGAIN!

You’ve been doing a bang-up job cleaning up the Wasteland so far during the Project Clean Appalachia event, but there’s still plenty to accomplish over the next few weeks! Meat Week returns today, thanks to your tireless Scorchbeast Slaying efforts, and the Take out the Trash Challenge begins next Tuesday.

MEAT WEEK RETURNS TODAY!

FO76 ITV SEpt26 Meat-Week

You’ve blown away tons of Scorchbeasts—over 670,000!—during the Clear the Skies challenge over the past two weeks and earned a second helping of Meat Week for a full seven days. Congratulations to all of the dedicated Scorchbeast hunters in the community who helped drop so many of these deadly creatures. Get ready to fire up the grill with Grahm, because Meat Week starts a little later today and runs until October 3.

CHALLENGE #2: TAKE OUT THE TRASH

FO76 ITV Sept26 Scorched

Now that the community has put a damper on the aerial infestation, it’s time to set our sights on mopping up another mess: The Scorched.

Starting next Tuesday, October 1, Dwellers can kill Scorched throughout Appalachia to earn progress toward a new set of rewards. Take out 8,000,000 Scorched, and the community will unlock a Legendary Sale Event from Purveyor Murmrgh from October 17 – 21. Like the last challenge, there will be stretch goals along the way offering cosmetic rewards. Help kill enough Scorched to complete the final stretch goal before October 14 and the community will receive a massive buff for the Purveyor Sale, which will increase the discount on legendary weapons and armor to 50%!

As a bonus, the Purveyor is planning to host her first ever Mystery Pick Event from October 3 – 7. During this event, you can choose the limited-time “Mystery Pick” option at the Purveyor for a chance at a greatly reduced Scrip price on a purely random Legendary item.


QUALITY OF LIFE FEATURES: STATUS UPDATE

FO76 ITV Sept26 MireVista

It probably is no surprise that Wastelanders is a big focus of ours. We are dedicated to making this new giant update as best as it can be. So, what does that mean for some of the other requests we’ve seen and feedback we’ve been reading from you? Wastelanders may be a big focus, but it’s not the only focus. There are several things we want to do and are working on, but it takes time and, in some cases, a lot of work.

We will be talking about Wastelanders and other content, patches, and features as they get closer to launching, but we do want to take a moment to give a quick status update on a few things we see more often than others starting with the features we’re looking to add in 2020.

  • PTS – A Private Test Server (PTS) is currently in the works with the hope to get it up and running in 2020. Once we’ve figured out all (or most of) the kinks, we will be able to provide more details on our PTS and how you can participate.

  • Perk Loadouts - Perk Loadouts are also currently planned for early 2020. Like the PTS, this is still very much a work in progress and while we’re excited to get this system out to you it’s still a ways off before we can start sharing more details. Look to a future Inside the Vault when we get closer to their release.

  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) – Account security is very important to us, and we know it’s critical to you, as well. The wonderful Bethesda.net team has been working hard to get MFA implemented for Bethesda.net. They are very close and are planning to have this enabled by the end of this year.

  • Legendary Player – Originally, we thought and had planned on the Legendary system arriving this year, but plans had to be adjusted while we worked on other things. This is still very much something we’re looking forward to releasing and currently have this scheduled for release in Q1 2020.

  • Social Menu Fixes – We’re aware of an issue that can prevent players on PC from sending and accepting friend invites, and we are also investigating several additional social menu issues for all platforms. We are working to address the friend issue on PC as soon as we can, but this is just one part of a group of social fixes we are looking to roll out across multiple future updates.

  • Additional Public Events Improvements – We’ve heard your feedback that the cooldown between Public Events is too long, and we’re planning to reduce it by at least half with a fix we’re including in Patch 14. We are also planning a second phase of Public Event improvements that will bring additional cooldown adjustments, performance-based loot, and remove the need to tag legendary event enemies to claim their loot. Phase two of our Public Events rollout is currently planned for early next year, and we’ll update you as we get closer to those updates.

We are constantly looking at your feedback and requests to see what’s possible to include in future updates. Features like PC text chat, the option to rejoin a server when kicked or dropped, and others are something we don’t currently have a timeline for but are looking into.

Please keep providing your thoughts and suggestions to us on Reddit, social media channels, and our official forums so that we know what’s most important to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well this sounds pretty promising, it's like their really trying to fix the whole game.

Not trying to be that guy, but if I understand correctly, we have to deal with the current settings of Events until 2020? Lol

They should just remove certain events from that notification events. No one needs to be notified of feed the people or distinguished guests or numerous other events. 

 

Also they are starting the next clean up 2 days before meat week ends? 

What's up with that?.

It's because we finished the last stretch goal, so they added a couple of days to the meat week.

 

Also a reminder, buy the rare plans from grahm.

Now when we know where he is at all times it's possible to server hop to get them.

Even if you know them they are worth buying for selling in your vendor or give to friends.

 

The rare grahm plans are:

Mirror ball

Starburst clock

Stone benches

Radiation emitter

 

And he also have the 10k neon letter plan, but that's not specific for grahm as it can be found elsewhere.

I guess he's also supposed to have the meat hook's extra hook plans. I've been looking for that since the vault raids come out. I got an instigating meat hook that I think will do good in there but it's just shy of one shotting the ghouls. 

 

Although the furthest I got was kneecapping them, leaving them to flounder and stop morr spawning.
