This! I have only done the settlement mission. I've almost unlocked the entire map ( where I can get to ) and have soooo many active side missions.

All these people we save are so needy.

I spent the first 20+ hours getting a feel for armour/weapon system, how to use the pip boy and doing a lot of exploring. Geez I found myself just looting for hours, pretty sure I am a hoarder now lol.

Being my first fallout game I am playing blind. The levelling of perks I found complicated and too many to choose from, but eventually figured out. It's cool how you can customise exactly to your style.

I avoided using VATs at first because I was used to fps aim and shoot style, but now I'm always relying on it. I've found some nice gear that has perks to speed up Action Points refilling. Also got stealth leg armour that turns me invisible when I crouch, reminds me of good times with my Hunter in destiny lol.

About 40 hours in and I've done a few side missions and main missions. Really enjoying it now, it's quite addictive.

I thought pre-release leaked screenshots were faked due to the FO4 looking quite good on PS4, but I have seen this happen twice....awful effect seems to be related to looking towards the sun. This is my own screenshot. I did take a video to show it also, but screenshot is enough. Aiming away from the sun looked fine, but the moving my view saw this pixelation.

Such a great time sink this game.  Started my 2nd character on friday, this one is 10 luck, 10 charisma, 1 int,ag,per,end and 5 odd strength.  My 1st character had 1 charisma so I didn't do the settlement/building thing. 

Spent all weekend scavenging mats and building.  I will try and get some screenies once Sanctropolis is complete.  I hit the height limit early on and had to alter my plans for a sky tower.  Took ages to surround all of sanctuary with a junk wall, built a water treatment plant (foundations work in water!), a power station, the list goes on :)   

Thanks to the Idiot Savant perk(s), I have leveled up pretty quick, have some trade stores and supply routes setup to my other neglected settlements.   Haven't touched any of the quest lines except for the nearby settlements ones.  Need more copper!

Has anyone found a solution for the following bugs:

1. A vendor in my settlement will no longer barter. All I can do is trade. I reassigned the position to a different settler but still cannot barter. I have repositioned the vendor building and still no barter.

Annoying as

EDIT: fixed by fast travelling away, quicksave, turn off ps4, reload game, run back to settlement.


2. Some food crop was damaged maybe in an attack. Now half my crop is not selectable in build mode and not repairable. I get the message that plant need repair. I did try to quicksave, build a fence post on top of all the broken plants, reload the quicksave. It worked for some but resulted in some of my healthy plants to break.

I thought this was a feature not a bug. Not an issue to me

I just picked this up today, along with the limited-edition, hardcover Vault Dweller's Guide. Currently playing through Fallout New Vegas, but am eagerly anticipating installing Fallout 4!!

Finished the main story today. Overall I think this game was disappointing after all the hype behind it. The story was kind of dull and the characters/dialogue were two-dimensional. However I did like the combat/VATS system and I admit wasting several hours looting and building up my settlements. Fallout 4 = 6.5/10 storywise and because

Fallout is never really about the main story though, generally side quests and your own adventures.

I've played FO for years and I wasn't aware it had a story. I thought the goal was to collect empty tin cans? Spaz fail  :P

But yeah they generally push you to a finish if you head that way. With so many endings I guess they are limited to the choices for each one.
