Not yet, but the guys from Cascadia are working on a complete reintegration of the Gamebryo Fallout skills system with the talented help of Neanka, the creator of DEF UI.

They'll be releasing it as a framework at an unnanounced date, which means we can expect a lot of overhaul mods to adopt it.

While it isn't a perfect progression system, it's definitely an upgrade from Fallout 4's in terms of choice, however it will open the gates to having a lot more fake choices that a lot of people on /fog/ tend to hate.

There's no right and wrong way to do an RPG.

There is, however, a correct way to approach Fallout's progression system, which is designed to create specialized characters, of which 4 does not have.

Also,
having to get rank 10 Charisma to intimidate someone for 3 seconds while you get shot at.

You seem to forget FO3 also had the same skills system as FNV. You don't to be an "Obsidiot" to prefer the old skills system. Not saying the old one is perfect though, it's just a step up.

The DC to Commonwealth trade route probably would go north through upstate New York instead of hugging the coast.

New York is like a giant crater, and I assume New Jersey and Connecticut would be too. Also the Glowing Sea.

A route to Fah Hahbah should be on that map too.

/vg/thread/189048895#p189151571
I was thinking of it being menu-based. No "weapon mixing" like in the older games, here you need parts and so on. Possibly strip weapon down for parts, or use materials to make your own parts.

The former requires that you find more of that weapon's parts and in good condition to begin with, while the latter (requires higher Repair) allows you to craft your own just by finding more common materials.

I have two problems with Fallout 4 progression:
Max level is too high
Perks don't change the game feel

My melee specced character feels the exact same as my rifleman character using a melee weapon thanks to the removal of skills. Also, any high level character *is* the same as any other, since there are so many levels that you can basically totally fill out your perk chart anyway.

@SniperGod
Sounds like a good solution. It'd be easy enough to make something that randomly removes firearms from people's corpses and replaces them with "broken" ones that require fixing. From there you could attach a Papyrus script to that runs an event on equip to prompt the user whether they want to repair (skill & components based) or repair (using a specified firearm for parts).

The only potential issue would be compatibility with weapon mods.

@girlDog
Yeah, Fallout 4 had a good idea with a ranking system, but they gave the ranks to the wrong things. You should be levelling skills every level, not stats.

You can believe that if you want, but if discussing systems design in video games makes you so angry you can't continue reading (you... just can't even, as it were) then maybe you should leave the computer and spend some time outside.

Wrong, filling out the perk chart would require getting to level 320+, which is impossible in any playthrough.

The majority of people don't even make it to level 120-130.

People saying NV had no skill checks are people that didn't play the game or did so like a fucking idiot.

There's even instances of your stats severely effecting your ability to communicate with people, such as Christine, who is a mute. There's even a fucking perk check for Nerd Rage or some shit with her. I played NV a lot more than 3, but I seem to remember 3 also having such things. I didn't notice nearly as many as NV however, and FO4 has fucking none.

@idontknow
There is no max level, nor should there be in an open world RPG.
Disagree. Part of the fun of an open world RPG is being able to come back to the same situation with a different character build and get completely different gameplay or dialogue. In the older games I could encounter someone on a mercenary character and wonder how the encounter would play out on a charismatic charmer character. In Fallout 4 I can just turn my mercenary into a charismatic charmer mercenary and come back, ruining my role playing experience in the process.

So what you are saying is that you never took perks like Blitz?
That doesn't change the game feel though. My rifleman can still whip out a sledgehammer and cave someone's skull in even though he's never used one before. In a fun game he would pathetically miss and fall over then get destroyed by his enemy, thus making finally mastering that skill all the more satisfying.

Wrong, filling out the perk chart would require getting to level 320+, which is impossible in any playthrough.
You can get all the relevant perks in 100 levels or so.

That is

B. Only possible if you get pretty high level, which, like in Fallout 3 and NV, let you easily get 10 in all SPECIAL, and 100 in all skills.
My rifleman can still whip out a sledgehammer and cave someone's skull in even though he's never used one before.
Not to any medium or high level enemy. Without perks, he isn't going to be doing shit for damage compared to your melee perked character.
You can get all the relevant perks in 100 levels or so.
No, you really can't, nice backpedal though.

@SniperWish
A personal problem, not a problem with the system
Self-imposed limitations are always less satisfying than limitations inherent to the game systems. Imagine if noclip and infinite health were always enabled. Would your solution be "just make your character hug the ground and deduct health yourself when you get hit if you don't like it"
Only possible if you get pretty high level, which, like in Fallout 3 and NV, let you easily get 10 in all SPECIAL, and 100 in all skills.
Hence why I'm saying that the level cap should be 30-50. You're the one claiming that it should be infinite.

Just accept it, user. Some of us find New Vegas' skill checks to be great. Saying "THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING" is a blatant lie, unless by "didn't do anything" you only mean "they didn't unlock new quest routes". At which point it is no longer "they dindu nuffin", but rather", "they dindu nuffin I'm interested in".

Self-imposed limitations are always less satisfying than limitations inherent to the game systems.
You sound like a shitter who played Morrowind by abusing the alchemy. RPGs were always about self-imposed limitations, both tabletop and video game ones. If you need to be forced to play the game in certain way by the mechanics to consider it an RPG, then you're clearly playing the wrong genre here. Play Doom, you're forced to play a shooter guy there. Play Gone Home, you're forced to play a teen girl who walks around the house.

- Repair check allows to repair a 9mm SMG. Not info, nor money, nor "exp" (you get exp, but you get exp for every skill check anyway).
- Science check allows you to craft chems at Doc Mitchell's house.
- Barter check with Dean Domino drastically changes his ending in the DLC.

Among many, many others. Those are the ones that come to mind since it is the very beginning of the game and one of the last DLCs I've played.

For what purpose?

I know that Fo4 tripped over it's own feet in implementation, but the new system is at worst a sidegrade that has dodged the major downsides of the old system.

cum2soon
cum2soon

@cum2soon
Namely that the new system can't be fixed. I and many other people have tried extending the menu in its current-state, and Cascadia have only made the headway they have because have a line of communication with Bethesda Game Studios.

Additionally the merging of stats and skills is an awful idea, because it encourages you to max all your stats to get the better perks, making you functionally identical to every other build with just different perks.

Like I said, it had a good idea with ranks, but completely tripped over itself by doing away with any form of skills, which could have had the same implentation that stats have now, being purely rank-based and unlocking perks for that specific skill rank.

Not him but no, it encourages you to specialize into certain SPECIAL categories to get the better perks.

Unlike Fallout 3 and NV where you could have 1 INT, but still have 100 science, since SPECIAL meant nothing, and wasn't tied to what you could do.

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

@Evil_kitten
Special was tied to low-level attributes like health, action points, gambling luck, critical chance, critical damage, raw damage, etc. It was a level of abstraction to determine where on the lowest levels of game function you'll be most effective.

Unlike Fallout 3 and NV where you could have 1 INT, but still have 100 science
I actually agree with this, I disliked how you could be a master scientist with 1 intelligence. However, I've also messed around with skill systems myself that limit you based on your stats. This has two effects:

1. you now have to scale for a much lower max skill level around the board.
2. this sort of system could not be applied across the board for every stat evenly. Yes if you're functionally retarded you won't ever be a scientist, but unlike if you were to say tie survival to strength, being strong won't make you innately more capable at your survival skill.

There's then the principle of throwing out the old. This is more of a personal opinion, but Fallout's skill system is integral to its identity. That's not a call for no change to be made, but rather to keep the framework of stats and skills, because ultimately Fallout was created as a homage to oldschool tabletop tole-playing sessions, and removing core components of the game only ends up making the depth feel less and less.

@cum2soon
Pretty sure you could still achieve what you want with the current system. Retool the current system so that each slot is dedicated to a ranked perk that is more inline with being a skill then add a bunch of quests akin to the challenges in NV that you can take by having certain ranks in a given skillperk that would award perk(s) dedicated towards specialization and flavor like the old perk system was.

Techpill

@TechHater
Survival skill increases the hit points you recieve from food and drink. It also helps you create consumable items at campfires.

I don't see how being able to tolerate more pain would make me a better cook.

Additionally it would then have the overlapping issue of making an Endurance build be insanely strong, as you'd be getting way more healing from food and water than you otherwise would have.

I wish there was an easy solve for this particular system implementation.

This.

Having 1 in Charisma, unlike what some users imply, doesn't mean you will be unable to reach 100 Speech.

Charisma is a measure of how likeable you are. Speech is a measure of how unlikeable you are. Nothing more, nothing less.

If you want Charisma to be related to Speech, make it so that higher Charisma makes it easier to level Speech. But acting like a character with 1 Charisma SHOULDN'T be able to reach 100 Speech is retarded.

Being able to pump the skill is hardly a benefit worth having to deal with only 1/25 of points in several skills doing anything. To say nothing of how the skills were split making less sense than many of the perk splits in 4.

Never been a huge fan of charisma as a stat. If I were to make a change to special I'd change it to something like "cunning" because then it could very easily make Speech a derrived skill, since you'd be better at playing to someone's angle with language.

Nojokur
Nojokur

@Techpill
I'll admit that the levels required for upgrading perks to certain levels is rather arbitrary, but I wouldn't say that discourages exploration. If anything, playing the older games and previous perk system, I was just as heavily discouraged to explore because I couldn't unlock/hack things in the beginning of the game. In both cases, it just meant remembering where locked chests were and trying to remember to go back (or just cheating to open it). FO4 had the same case, see the useless Cryo Gun in the beginning of the game.

Like the others said, there has to be some sort of restriction on pumping stats, because cheesing and just upgrading your perks to max doesn't make for good game design. Alternatively, I would have at least suggested in FO4 that you could attempt higher difficulty locks/terminals, but it would basically be incredibly difficult or nigh impossible if you didn't have the right level of the perk. Level 1 Lockpick could attempt a Very Hard, but the minigame's sweet spot would be even smaller than it already is.

People are still saying UFO4P breaks shit in the vanilla game when all it does is actually leave some stupid decisions made by Bethesda on account of the mod team wanting to fix bugs, not change Bethesda's decisions. People even point to vanilla glitches as being at the fault of UFO4P. There might be some credence to the 1.10 rumors, but sometimes you just have to try it yourself, since it's pretty difficult to break FO4 unless you're running conflicting mods.

Just keep an eye out, I guess. Like people have said, the CC patch does fuck with load order a bit since it makes .esm get loaded after .esp, I think? Instead of the other way around. So you need to make sure to put UFO4P at the top of your load order to make sure it's getting loaded in.

I know the posts say something with VIS/AWKCR is sketch, but maybe I haven't been paying attention to the loot (since I don't loot armor very often) to notice that it's not working correctly.

Im talking about the bodyslide sliders (b7 top, b7 bottom, thighs, waist, ankles, etc)

You can use bodyslide in game with looksmenu. I know in skyrim eventually they made it so that only effected the player character, so that made sense, it was part of your personal character customization. But my instinct is telling me that currently in FO4 if i go changing the body shape with bodyslide it will change all actors still, because i seem to recall it requiring some .dlls and other stuff to work properly in skyrim, and this seems an early implimentation for FO4

@Spazyfool
Do you mean that using bodyslide outside the game affects everyone but using those same sliders in game through looksmenu only affects the player? Thats how it works in skyrim, but again, it took a while to get there and im just wondering if its already like that in FO4

Assume playing along with the raiders is the 'canon' route since it seems to be where most the dialogue and character interaction is in Nuka-World.
Becoming Overboss is actually contradictory to pretty much any character agenda laid out by any of the existing factions in the base game.
This pretty much felt like it's own isolated badguy-mode area, but then it started seeping into the main game and just seemed wrong.
Also hard to imagine why a badguy type character would put up with all the shit the raiders give you in Nuka-World once you become Overboss. At first I thought it was just to give the impression that you had to make them warm up to you, but then I get random Disciple kids actually threatening my character's life.

Id really like a mod to be able to take those captured raiders and put them in a sex dungeon, with slave trainer mechanics. It needs stats like anus looseness, its not a good h-game with out statistics like that.

I never said anything about using mods. Also I was referring to playing on normal and survival and stipulating that you did need to invest your survivability. Survival mode is only a real pain as far as damage in and out goes when you're shitting about in the vault suit and a 9mm.

Also 200% damage all ways is way beyond vanilla balancing, regardless of difficulty setting. Don't bitch about shit being fucked when it's your own fault.

Also I forgot to mention, but the settlement system is absolutely not required as much as you were implying. At most you need to build maybe half a dozen things to create the teleporter and maybe a total of a dozen things if you side with the Minutemen.

If Bethesda ever went back to Chicago to have another look at Fallout Tactics, what do you think would be changed?

Ring Pulls replaced with caps
Calculator's humanoid robots replaced with Assaultrons
Everything is far more 50's!

I play Stalker at max difficulty no problems, but this game I have problems with? Its just weird. Why does it take all my ammo to kill some soft shelled mirelurks. I was at 100 before the one in the sewer popped up and then down into the 30s when it was gone. If I hadnt swapped to melee and hit the one when it was killing my dog I would have died from lack of ammo by the second one. The enemies are bullet sponges that deal too much damage. I just got this computer a few months ago and theres lag on turning so its not the computer.

In the Gamebryo games they always forced the player, regardless of gender, to adopt the male animations when in power armor to avoid making you look too casual in it.

Disregarding that, it's going to look like shit when you compare it to the tanks that they are now. IMO it's an upgrade but not everyone sees it that way.

Its the started weapon, the 10mm. And 70 ammo when you havent found a store or anything yet is a ton. I dont have any perks but it would have been 20% and I got the gun maker one instead which gave more flat damage then the other would have. It half because I suck at fps, half because I have to run and shoot so I miss alot, and most that the lag on movement messes with my aiming too much.

like to play characters to completion before starting over
completionsist completion, not just finishing the story
so every side quest, lots of radiants, every companion maxed affinity, map locations marked, etc
just 2 playthroughs made almost 1400 hours as a result
now just started my third playthrough
through coincidence, the exception seems to be nuka world
1400 hours, 2 playthroughs, but I've never completed nuka world
never turned the power on, never freed the slaves, never raided the main map, never any of it
I always start a new playthrough right after getting to nuka world
It's so strange. I autistically do everything in wealth/harbor and then suddenly get the itch to start new right around the time I've spent a couple hours in nuka world. So I've seen stuff but just never finished it or got far.

wew, so i got bodygen to work properly.

The annoying thing is you have to use zeroed bodyslide sliders as the base body. You then get proper slider use of ingame sliders for character customization, but this makes every single female npc in the game use a very bland zeroed out body.

But bodygen is amazing, i just took the settings for a regular cbbe preset and have bodygen set to generate that body for every female npc.

The result is that all female npcs have a reasonably neutral/ok body and i have a zeroed base body to use sliders properly on.

Im surprised it all worked out to be honest. I bet there are bugs and its going to ruin everything. I really dont know, maybe i should just uninstall all this and use a single female body like normal.

The advantage is you could have a much wider variety of female npc bodies, you can have multiple presets or even presets that have ranges instead of hard slider values, then you could have multiple different 'types' of female bodies all with slight variations, all randomly generated.

The issue is this could make some emotionally important females have really off body types. So you would have to go in and standardize all the female companions/story npcs. That would be a huge hassle.

Open world is inherently bad. You have to build a whole world, lore, and people from scratch. Bethesda had that done in fallout 1 when they didnt need to spend so much time on graphics. Now people would have to spend half a decade atleast to make a good new series thats not just skin deep. If you want something that seems like a real world expect spending all that time just on world building. Its easier to rip off books like the witcher did. I expect most people to do that from now on. Oh a cool book series, lets rip it off and make a few changes and viola, skipped 3 years of the process.

time on graphics
Why would the people doing the graphics be involved with the setting?

You need someone whos job is to make up the setting, imagine its history, invent the organizations and factions within it and their motivations. This person isnt going to make the actual game, they are going to imagine the IP. No different from ripping it off from an author, and it could even be a specialty, a person whos job it is to do this could customize a setting in subtle ways that make it more conducive to making a game out of.

Basically, 'the idea guy' has to not be a fucking meme. You need to hire people whos job is to just sit around and think about stuff.

you cant make the game without having the story.
You can make a lot of it. The games engine, the combat and progression mechanics, basic environmental assets.

All the while the story and setting come together, general regions can be developed and placed, by the time you have to do specific filling in of areas the story is complete.

Honestly the story should be one of the last things that go into a game. Think of it like old rpg systems. You have d20, developed and balanced and maintained series of mechanics, then you take that and apply a story to it. When it comes to making a game you would only need very vague ideas to get to work making the bulk of the world.

Maxson would originally still promote you even if you destroyed The Institute via the Minutemen
You could originally take Curie to Doctor Amari if you know of her via the Railroad, instead of only after doing Kellogg's dream sequence
There is a cut misc objective dealing with the Boston library database where you could complete it, and get a compressed version of it
Originally both the overseer and Austin would get sick in the Vault 81 quest
In the Silver Shroud quest, Sinjin was originally human, and was ale to be "killed" by flooding the hospital with radiation, only for him to return later as a ghoul. Also, one could destroy the Silver shroud costume in a vat of acid, and doing negative things during the quest would make the shrouds rep worse.
The Diamond City wanted board quests originally did something to replace a generic NPCs name with that of a unique name to make it seem more like you were hunting notorious targets

I heard rumors that the 2015 launch version of the game had unused dialogue that was removed in later patches very early on, like only a few days, regarding synth Nora / Nate

Probably fake though

Anyway what does /fog/ think of my Nora?

What if Creation Club had the "The replacement" quest in it?

Boy_vs_Girl

@RavySnake
"JIP LN Plugin" is essential. Get it. Now.

"Tales from the Burning Sands" is a good quest mod, if you want to try something a bit more questy and less shooty. Comes with learnable recipes and some neat perks. Also has a basic player home and a neat buddy. And a fully-functional Zork-style terminal-based text adventure. Admittedly it uses preset commands instead of parseable text, but game engine limitations are a thing.

"Sortomatic" is the name of a mod that did for New Vegas what the Fallout 4 settlement inventory system does, and more. It sorts items to player-set containers, loads up relevant items when using attached crafting stations, and can even keep your inventory stocked at specific quotas.

"Mobile Truck Base" is, as can be guessed, a mobile truck base. It's a combination purchaseable player home and immersive fast-travel substitute, and has optional Sortomatic support. It is also very comfy. The crate-style version has more headroom and is the variant I recommend.

"VATS Alternative" is a strong yet simple option to replace VATS with a working bullet time, with perk integration across the board.

I would rather have a Nora Companion equivalent.

Actually, an "alternate start" where all the vault 111 subjects survived and unfreeze at the start. Player able to choose to be nate, nora, or an other resident with a choice of out of a list of what background they had like criminal, scientist, engineer, war veteran, lawyer, police officer, lesbian. With a bonus perk/penalty and unique dialog choices when dealing with something in that subject matter.

Flameblow

@LuckyDusty

I guess its a mod. I think I'm gonna scrap my current character and try Horizon again. Horizon was, for some reason, fucking with my interface, though.

Main reason I want to give Horizon another go: Despite being challenging, its got some features that allow settlers to do jobs. You can tell a guy to go to a place and bring back supplies on your behalf. I want to try this with robots and stuff. And also abduction mod. Capture raiders and send them on suicide missions.

Sort of like the ultimate Big Boss style of experience

I like the idea of the entire Vault being unfrozen. And those people being your first settlers in Sanctuary. And you help bring in supplies and they actually fix their old homes up, maybe not to pristine condition, but not hammering the same wall over and over again with no changes to the house whatsoever.

I may sound like a total scrub right now, but how do most of you handle the "tutorial deathclaw" in Concord on survival?

I was technically level 1 and had 5 perks to choose, but I had a hard time not getting one-shot by that thing. Are you supposed to just backpedal and shoot it with the minigun, or stay on the roof and wait for it to spawn, and let the raiders kill it? Or just ignore that shit altogether until you have better equipment?

I died maybe 7 or 8 times just trying to mow it down with the minigun, then the 9th time I let the raiders severely wound it, then took care of it, only to insta die to a molotov at point blank (Honestly why would that happen, if Danses armor can survive ROCKET EXHAUST) and the second time I just lured it next to a truck, took some jet, and let the truck explosion phase and wound it, then finish it off with the minigun.

I wonder if the tutorial deathclaw has special abilities that make it so its legs can't be crippled by the player, I tried crippling its legs with the minigun and it wasn't doing a thing...then again I was level 1, technically.

I feel like there is too much substantial clothing and not enough things like basic undershirts and shorts/non baggy pants you might wear under armor.

The vault suit is actually the best vanilla under armor, it makes sense because its what you start with, it provides some reasonable radiation protection, and its form fitting enough that you can put armor over it.

I want things that you will barely notice under combat armor, or which it would make sense for someone to be wearing while stepping out of power armor.

Plasma a shit

Plasma is partially kinetic in Fallout.

I imagine its like, getting hit in the chest with a 10,000 degree hot "somewhat dense" balloon or something, traveling at slightly slower than bullet speeds, and explodes upon contact. Its really like a miniature rocket propelled grenade made out of pure energy.

I also imagine a plasma grenade being more efficient at killing than a frag grenade. Frag grenade does damage mainly from shrapnel, so realistically its explosive power isn't really evened out when compared to a ball of green energy that explodes evenly in all directions.

But I agree about lasers in Fallout, they are full on shit unless you get a legendary one. Wounding laser is so outrageous with the right parts.

Yeah if plasma weapons were ever created in reality, they'd work by hurling gobs of plasma (which does have mass and isn't "pure energy" or what the fuck ever) at the enemy.

It's like those molten copper weapons but with hydrogen and way way hotter (and a different state of matter).

Pretty sure in FO, plasma is just really really hot hydrogen anyway. My headcanon is: A plasma cartridge is a tube with hydrogen in it, connected to a device, possibly fusion powered, that heats it up. Realistically the glass in the cartridge should be hot to the touch or melt the glass, but maybe its space age shit holding it together.

There isn't one. The game is stable up until you reach the hard limit imposed by the 8-bit hex formid system (255). The engine shouldn't be struggling to handle anything below that limit, outside of slowly down loading screens and the initial launch when it loads the data files.

Stability can vary heavily depending on what modifications you're using.

It gives you automatic fire for emergencies while keeping the ammo consumption down. With faster firing and low damage automatics there's always the issue of multiple shots spraying around and wasting bullets in the heat of combat. A slow firing but high damage weapon, like say M60 in most games, allows you to tap the trigger for short burst killing most weak mobs in a handful of bullets, and if you run into legendary you can just keep that trigger down and control the recoil.

Personally I'd say lucky. Two bullets mean DT is aplied twice so more powerful crits should give you more damage overall. Especially against armored enemies.
But it kind of depends how frequent crits are without vats. Haven't tested that mod to much so dps might be better with two-shot.

@ZeroReborn
The wiki actually says:
The game uses the combined damage to calculate the damage reduction multiplier of the target's armor, so when both bullets hit, it does the same damage that one bullet with the combined damage would do. Therefore a Two-shot weapon will do more damage than the shots of an identically modded normal weapon and its unmodded variant combined.

I use 25% chance so usually every fourth shot is a crit.

Yeah, perks apply to all effects and projectiles leaving a weapon. That's why Exploding, Two Shot, and Bleeding on any shotgun are so great. It applys said effect and/or perk to EVERYTHING. Double the pellet amount, or massive stacking bleeding effect, or explosions and stagger all over the place.

Basically, it becomes super overpowered, since it treats every pellet as its own projectile.

Piper and I are best friends, but we don't have that sort of relationship.

I "accidentally" did on my first playthrough because I assumed you couldn't date two people at once and I wanted to see what happened, but you can. But I reloaded a save. She says no to a threesome...

I did date two people on my second playthrough though. I was dating Cait and Heather expressed her feelings for me and I cared for her too so we became a threesome. Which was odd for me at first but I just love them both, which ended up making sense in a way.

Love for me is about dedication and devoting yourself to someone and being their trustworthy partner, so trying to apply this to two people was challenging and not really something I intended, but it made sense as it was happening.

@FastChef
Context. They're mods that make one select person give you quests or demand sex and things like that. They have some short or simple quests and you sort of have a relationship with them.

Most skyrim/fo sex mods are rapey stuff that involves before or after or during combat, or some mods you can go around having sex with whoever you want.

I would rather have a robust system where one individual does those things to you, rather than going around the world doing it to everyone.

reminder that the "caesar's legion will collapse once caesar dies" meme is something ncr babbies came up with to try and console themselves

when president tandi was in charge of the ncr, it functioned more like a hereditary monarchy and as better for it. but the ncr is a democracy and tandi was buying time before it reverted back to its degenerate state. ncr citizens are fundamentally democratic citizens and that's why it will never last; because it encourages the worst in its people rather than the best

the legion doesn't have this problem. members of the legion have been raised from birth to know nothing but discipline and loyalty. when caesar dies the legionary soldiers will do what they've always done, right up the the highest chain of command: obey. caesar is not a person to them, he's a symbol that can be embodied by anyone

Expand on the Settlements system and make the other factions (BoS, Raiders, Super Mutants, etc) take, occupy, and improve/destroy settlements around the game. I hated that the Sole Survivor was the only person really changing the the surroundings. The SS could build defenses, farm the land, and build up communities around the entire Commonwealth while every other faction either sat in the home base until the final act (like the BoS or the Institute) or just sort of spawned at random (like Raiders and Super Mutants).

Imagine the different factions using their resources to build new settlements in unaligned towns, or forming raiding parties to attack and occupy/destroy other faction's settlements. I want a dynamically changing map, shaped by the actions of the factions that inhabit it. When Raiders attack my settlement, I want it to be because they have taken a neighboring settlement and established a nearby den from which they could safely raid those around them.

With this idea in mind, I want an overhaul to the faction diplomacy. I want to be able to make alliances and enemies with factions in a dynamic way. I want to be able to send a trade caravan to the nearby BoS outpost and have them be friendly towards me and my settlements for a time. Or if massive hordes of mutants are nearby we could forge the beginnings of an alliance and work together to clear them out.

Just thinking off the top of my head: BoS would value tech. Give them advanced weapons, armor, and other gear and they would help you repel hostile forces from your settlements. Give Raider factions a tribute of caps and drugs and they will raid away from your settlements (like those Enclave cunts across the map). So on and so forth.

There could be faction-based companions who travel with you if you have a solid reputation among their respective faction, or perhaps you can assign them to capture enemy settlements or to defend and govern (provide a passive boost) to your own settlements.

The dating is nice, but definitely actual marriage.

Dialogue options with your spouse about what type of ceremony they want, maybe there's a religious institution or you just say your vows at a scenic location together alone. Depends on the personality, different companions would want different styles.

Your faction or chosen place to live would comment on it or attend etc.

There could be a quest where they are targeted by your chosen enemy faction to get to you.

Besides that, adoption like in skyrim. Or having kids if you're heterosexual of course.

Going along with that, definitely post-main quest content. There is some quest you have to do for the plot of the game, but once whatever that is is completed, the game switches to rebuilding stuff and making a nice society with schools and actual farms and production and stuff like that. You could make your own little village. Or, if you're a raider type, you could start your raider fortress and make battle training grounds instead of schools and all those sorts of things.

Not him but I can see the Brotherhood setting up stations in pre-established towns in exchange for protecting them.

The Institute wouldn't "take over" towns in the traditional sense, instead they will slowly replace everyone with Synths, and then try to use that town to covertly kill anyone against them.

The Railroad would establish cells in new towns, from which they would do their underground operations and stuff.

You could pull it off in ways that make sense.

The BoS doesn't work that way. They also already protect towns in general via thier super mutant, raider, and feral ghoul, purges, and ask for food in return.

The Institute wouldn't "take over" towns in the traditional sense, instead they will slowly replace everyone with Synths, and then try to use that town to covertly kill anyone against them.
The Institute doesn't work that way either. They care nothing about taking over the surface, and prefer to keep the number of infiltrators they have at a minimum.

The Railroad would establish cells in new towns, from which they would do their underground operations and stuff.
This would be counter productive to the Railroad's overall goals as it would be impossible to keep track and manage that many cells in any one region, and it would just make it easier for an enemy force to capture a railroad agent, and learn where other safe-houses are in the process.

The Railroad had 12 safehouses, 4 in the Capital Wasteland, 4 in The Commonwealth, and 4 either in Ronto or the Broken Banks(if the pattern hold) Even Dez admits she doesn't know the total number of people they have, making it bigger just means more instability.

If we are talking about a hypothetical FO5, none of these factions might even be present depending on the time and place of the setting. We can only use pre-established factions as an example and not all of them would work without some contrivances of the story, but I think a system like @Poker_Star
describes would be a lot more interesting than the boring and passive world that the players are plopped down into.

Define passive.

I don't see how a game world where all the various factions(sans railroad) can be countered fight each other on the game map at both set places, and random cutters, even before the player joins any of them, can be called "passive"

I think they are done with that phase of their plan. This was mostly to kidnap people to use as subjects for FEV experimentation in the past. Even to recruit members for the Institute they don't seem to do this anymore. You recruit T.S. Wallace without leaving any sort of synth decoy behind during the institute route.

What I mean by passive is that nothing of any importance happens without you the player doing it with your own hand. You may see factions duke it out on occasion but the battles themselves don't accomplish anything and only serve as action pieces for the players to randomly stumble into. They exist in a vacuum, not affecting anything outside of that particular set piece.

It was done to great effect like in the STALKER series and it gave the game incredible replayability due to the how different a section of the map could be from one play through to the next. But player agency is important and that is why there should be some real consequences to the player's actions throughout the game instead of just choosing who to shoot in the face before the end credits. When raiders come to attack your settlement there should be more at stake than some ingredients to make more duct tape. The process of choosing allies should be more complex than getting a companion to give you sex bucks.

Companions can permanently die would be really cool if it was a plot point, and was done through decisions and actions/dialogue, not just lollandmine or lolgrenade. Much like Danse.

People "having" to die over the course of the main quest can potentially be well done. An example of this is Kaiden or Ashley in Mass Effect 1. It wasn't just they died in combat so they were dead, that's unsatisfying if they just walk over a land mine. It was done through a pivotal moment where Sheperd made a choice.

So something like that I think would be cool (in the sense that I would hate it but it would potentially be good storytelling). So I agree if that is what you meant.

But no, some random raider #65758 getting lucky with a molotov and suddenly your wife is gone would not make for good gameplay. As realistic as that may be.

The problem is not the lines being slight variations of the same sentence. The problem is the NPC not responding accordingly. The second line is much more agressive than the first line and I was hoping Trudy would have reacted accordingly when I said it.

Same with the three lines in the first encounter with Ringo.

@Carnalpleasure

How? It's pathetic that water (I forgot food too) and resting heals the player. Player should be able to heal himself only through medicine.

Companions that can permanently die is a cool feature but these fucking Bethesda games, as always, have to ruin it. You could die the most bullshit death out of a glitch or a bug, or terrible AI, and it would be unfair to force it on the player.

Case in point: I had ED-E following me inside H&H Tools, and Veronica triggered one of those steel beam traps. ED-E literally walked into the beam, repeatedly, and died.

The raider power armor. What a let down. Sucks, because it looks so fucking cool. Raider power armor should be a lot more viable for mid-late game characters. It should have a wide variety of mods that could be crafted, and even fully-unique mods that are only dropped by Raider bosses. There would be a whole heap of different raider armor pieces, each with a different look. You could mix and match them to get a scrappy, wasteland feel.

The standard Raider Armor would look the way it does now. A Raider Armor Mk. II set could have extra, more heavy bits of metal welded and bolted on. Raider Armor Mk. III could have rusty, dented car parts bolted onto it. Raider Armor Mk. IV could be decorated with bones and skulls, to show off all the raider's previous victims. Raider Armor Mk. V could be built with salvaged robot parts. Raider Armor Mk. VI could have heavily-damaged, rusted bits of salvaged T-45 and T-51 power armor welded on with the scrap.

The unique boss-only parts could have their own, fully-unique look, related to the gang they were leading, like an arm piece with a Deathclaw skull instead of a pauldron, or a helmet made out of a broken terminal. Not only that, but there could also be paint schemes that are unique to certain gangs, and all power-armored raiders in that gang have that paint job.

Seriously, this had so much potential, What are your thoughts?

This is why Fallout died.

Most games aren't anywhere near as buggy as Bethesda games, though. Moreover, Bethesda games have so much going on at any one time that a companion dying due to poor AI is very likely.

I was thinking about this before. The raider power armor looks to be entirely custom, as in, not salvaged from actual, manufactured pieces of power armor like t-45, 51b, etc.
Are raiders manufacturing completely new pieces of power armor? What the fuck is going on?

No it shouldn't, its fucking random metal signs strapped onto a PA frame, it should be far worse then even combat armor.

All these suggestions are beyond retarded, and would make even less sense then what we got now.

Well I wouldn't be comfortable asking for money on whatever I make. I am not a modeler. At best I would be mashing up other pieces to look close to what I want. And I'd probably ask texture bro if he'd do the texture and USA flag on it, somewhere, too.

I mean the end result MIGHT look okay, but eh. If you want to talk to me on Steam, I could tell you everything I know just in case you wanted to try...making guns isn't really as difficult as it sounds, its actually easier than rigging. The hard part is conceptualizing the different parts and how you want it to look, or actually modeling it from scratch, but that's usually not what I do with my past projects.

Methnerd

@Nojokur
My guess is they had normal suits of power armor but couldn't repair the original pieces, so they had to make entirely new stuff to fit over the frames they have. Just take the player being able to singlehandedly repair pre-war power armor pieces as a disconnect between lore and gameplay. No idea why it wouldn't be more metal bolted onto t-45/51/etc though, maybe it's just had improvised repairs done so many times that it's not recognizable anymore.

Well first off you'll need the Creation Kit, which is available from the Bethesda Launcher as I'm sure you're aware. Then you'll need to find a 3D modeling tool that you're familiar with. I'd highly recommend Blender since there's dozens of tutorials out there.
This is a pretty basic guide on it, covers the simple aspects: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTCFh-tR28w

You'll need nifskope, CK, 3ds max (or Blender) Or Outfit Studio (It can do gun mashups actually, made my avenger and plasma caster with it)

If you add me on Steam I can probably guide you along the processes required. There's already tutorials out there for this stuff but I think it would be easier to show someone on a more up close experience.
