New Fallout 4 Update Available on PC, Consoles to Follow

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/932/932446.png

No more using copper to build wires.

The latest update for Fallout 4 is now available for PC users [https://bethesda.net/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=020116-Bnet-patch13#en/events/game/fallout-4-1.3-update/2016/02/01/70], with the update expected to release on consoles later this week. Fallout 4 Update 1.3 adds a number of fixes across all platforms, including correcting an issue where your character became dismembered while still alive (ouchie), issues with NPCs getting stuck in Power Armor, and - finally - you no longer have to tap into your copper supply in order to build wires. There are some pretty exciting quest fixes, but some of them also contain spoilers, so if you're brave, feel free to scroll down to see them. If I had to choose a favorite part of this update, however, it would be this one: "Fixed an issue with Minutemen quests repeating improperly."

All that stuff is all very nice, but you know what it doesn't fix?
Mod support. Still have to jump through hoops every single damn time I want to continue my modded save game.

I am waiting for them to release the construction set for precisely this reason. I did a mostly unmodded playthrough when it first launched and will wait several months after the kit is out to play a second time. There's quite a lot in this game that needs modding and I know it'll get it eventually. Don't want to completely burn myself out until after the really great mods come out.

A lot of these "...fixes," are near identical to what was released in the last patch. :|

I wonder if the Bethesda development team, developed mass senility. Or if they are just trying to fluff up their patch logs with a load of horse shite, to make them look like they have done more than they actually have.

The only fix I'm not too happy to see is where effects are now properly removed when you take armor and such off of campainions. I liked being able to just dump a bunch of my crap on Curie and continue adventuring instead of having to go back to base every twenty minutes. Now I'll have to wait until they actually bring mods to the console version and hope that increasing companion carry weight is one of the options.

I don't suppose this means that settlements armed up the wazoo will stop demanding that I come in person to defend them?

"Okay, new plan, guys: when raiders attack, go the @#$% inside and let the turrets do the work."

"But what about-"

"Did I stutter?!"

i'm using the beta version of this patch for a good week now, and the Added status menu for settlers in your settlements is a time saver. now when you are in workshop mode, each time you point a settler, his job is showned. so you can figure out who's doing what and whois is unemployed very quickly.

but in the beta the brahmins were showing as unemployed, so i hope they fixed that.

Sounds like a lot of overdue fixes, especially on the console front. Shouldn't have taken this long IMHO but what can you do...

You know, besides not supporting the game/not buying the DLC.

I really wonder what kind of DLC they plan to release. I can't say it enough: This is maybe the shortest main Bethesda title I know of, and what quantity there is, quality is far in between.

Might be one of the first moddable RPGs where I seek fan quests on puprouse.

Beside the utter pointless settlements and the UI the main issue for me.

Can't fix that with a patch it seems.

Awwww! This is what Microsoft would call "not a bug, but a feature!".

What the heck mods are you running? I"m running a few myself and have no problem with my saves.

They released this patch in a beta state that you could download early. You're probably remembering that.

OT: As fun as it was to perfect headshot accuracy in VATS, MacReady's perk definitely made combat a little too trivial.

"re-balance" mods. The kind that make the hardest difficulty mobs about as challenging as the easiest difficulty mods. Things like that I would imagine would cause issues.

waiting for the geck, i wouldnt hold my breath.

so far, the patch didnt make a mess of my mods (because i have about 7 of them, and they are all settlement building stuff) but damn if the hard rain is now even comming i through the 2nd story floors now sometimes!
befor this, we used to be able to use the double thickness upper floor to stop rain clipping through into the settlements and for patching the sanctuary roofs.
i wonder if the allmighty Rugs will now be the only way to stop the rain....

MacReady's Killshot perk now calculates headshot percentages properly
I'm pretty sure they actually broke this perk entirely.
Now I'm running into situations where all other body parts are 95% and the head is stuck at 60%.

I was always confused as to why the rain went through the roofs. I know they aren't exactly water tight, but still.

i think this is the "fix" I want the least. It was great having a 95% hit chance on someone at the very limits of VATS' range. Otherwise, headshots just aren't worth going into VATS for.

As for that "repeating minutemen quests", thank god. I was grinding out levels from 60-80 doing minutemen and BOS radiant quests, and while the BOS guys sent me all over, Preston would send me to the same 2 settlements every damn time. That went on for over 20 hours.



2 fixes I really want though:
1. Let me use critical unarmed attacks in power armor, every time my guy just stands there and I waste a vats use.
2. Stop Piper from dying everytime I look at her. Seriously, she randomly just falls to 0 health from picking vegetables all day at Red Rocket.

I'm really looking forward to the stronger settlement/settler organization. Hopefully I can optimize things. Not knowing who was doing what, and why really bothers me.
