What do you do after you finish the game?

What do you do after you finish the game?

"Finish"? I do not understand this word in the context of FO4 :P Really though, I enjoy building settlements whenever I fire up FO4. Settler pathing can be a pain at times, but I just love seeing my own little community come to life.

Sim settlements 2. Nothing quite like showing up at your settlement to find a giant Roberto the stabbing robot statue, and reading the latest news, written by a supermutant.

How do you use sim settlements without getting massive frame drops in the triangle of death?


KansasCCW

An interesting question. I had this *baaad* tendency to keep upping the settlement build limit. Which ready hit hard when traveling to those... interesting areas. So I don't have an answer that I know works, as I haven't been doing any settlement building for a bit now. But I might have an answer. This playthrough, I loaded up a texture replacement mod that is apparently popular... 38k endorsements on nexus. There are many settings, and a couple of them are "make the game run better" settings. I added it mid run on my current run. Since doing that, I haven't seen one bad stutter. I even found myself running like hell, realized I was next to that asinine building that you can only get to by the little trolly. This is the place I usually stutter like hell. No stutter. Huh. I'm keeping an eye on it, but so far so good. I'm waiting for the gunners expansion to sim settlements 2, then after giving them a month to work out the obvious kinks, I'm gonna made a new run just for that. I suppose we will see then. If you want the name of the mod, let me know. I'm not home right now and can't look it up, but when I get home tonight, I don't mind doing that. After all, I found out about it because someone mentioned it here...


tjreed141

Yeah I’d like the name


KansasCCW

https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/25714 "Vivid Fallout". I'm using the first one there I think, the simplest. I just wanted to see if it worked, I wasn't worried about the crispest details. Not at first at least. I might have to pump it up later.


tjreed141

Thanks

I gave up worrying about the pathing, so long as beds get assigned. Built one of my raider outposts at murkwater which was fun. Ended up just putting everything up in the air on two huge platforms.

You guys don’t break your game with mods and restart fresh every other week? LOL I haven’t beaten the game in like 2 years due to my vicious cycle

zzSHADYMAGICzz

Damn a fellow cycle-er


LionhitchYT

I’ve done it too many times I’m trying to break the cycle by actually playing the game with some mods and adding simple ones that won’t break the game. And if I ever want to start a new playthrough I make a new mo2 instance


zzSHADYMAGICzz

Same here. I just started a normal save no mods and I resorted to essential mods. Examples would be encounter zone recalculation for enemy scaling and Boston FPS fix as well as high FPS fix.


LionhitchYT

Yeah modding is invetiable so you may as well go all out to make *your* perfect fallout


skateordie1213

I, too, have engaged in this self-destructive behavior.


ERay569

Dr. Nicks never gets old.


DwightMcRamathorn

Rub one out


_stryker1138_

Yep, after you finish the game you finish yourself


Devil_0fHellsKitchen

Champagne of victory


FenrirIII

And make Nick watch


skateordie1213

Literally my same answer, but with a little less crying yourself to sleep. 🤣


Tontors

I build up outpost and equip all my provisioners with heavy combat armor and legendary weapons. Its cool seeing friendlies while walking around kicking ass on some mutants. If that gets boring for you start over with a new build/play style and a new faction. Early to mid game FO4 is just so fun.


Trypticon66

You mean there are ppl out there that actually finish the main quest. Something always happens to my game before I can finish the main quest and I end up starting over


Ox_of_Dox

Same, I've had 20 characters but only finished the main story 6 times


Trypticon66

Had the game since release and never got done with it


Venzhas

This game is never "finished"


KansasCCW

True. Usually for me I see a new mod that I want to try out with a fresh play.


ERay569

Well, it does get to a point where all that's left is running around fighting or doing radiant quests. I'm always looking for new quest mods though. Just started Tales.


Venzhas

Baby theres like hundreds of sidequest Why few years after youll never met someone saying "I 100% Fallout 4" ? As skyrim, its unfinishable


Miltawne

Play the DLC's until I feel nothing getting a level because perks are maxed. I start asking myself why I'm even looting anymore. The sense of progression is gone at this point. Uninstall.


wombatrocks

I usually go for an 1man apocalypse run. Which means I kill everyone and everything I see


Nervous-gay

Yeah I’ve had the game for 3 or 4 years and still have only beaten the game twice because I hate the reunions quest so much


janegayz

currently i switched over to pc and im trying to play completely without mods so that i can get all the achievements


ERay569

You could always go get the ones that "just work" of course. I think they let you have those.


LettuceLadTheMighty

I build up my settlements and usually take down the brotherhood


Geekrock84

Right on, same here.


[deleted]

I blew it up with the Brotherhood (Ad victorium!!) and then I went to Sanctuary Hills to see Paladin Danae and Shawn (the kid I saved). Then I gave Paladin Danae his armor back, saved and shut off the game. Sat there in disbelief that I was actually done.”, then started cheering like crazy, then drank a zero calorie Coke and did 100 push-ups and sit-ups because I was so fired up.


gonk_casual

I think in the past I regularly check with Preston or Freedom Radio about settlements in distress just find an excuse to kill more Raiders and shit to keep from getting bored.


CatchmeUpNextTime

Start a new character.


GuardedNumbers

Finish? Ha that's a good one.


RockefellersDaughter

On my last run I Roleplayed as the silver shroud killing as many raiders as I can find


Ox_of_Dox

This is the right answer


skateordie1213

Whack my willy and cry myself to sleep.


ERay569

I weep, for there are no more worlds to conquer.


janegayz

i keep playing my main character but for other ones i make a character and romance someone and set up some "lore" for that character, side with someone and beat it then do it all over again


chilachinchila

I build up an institute refugee camp settlement.


I426Hemi

Make settlements that make sense and work within the world. Shoot stuff with a 45-70.


MaximusFurious

Celebrate...then get back at it waste lander!!!


highgames420

Get the DLC or start again with a totally different build


supertwonky

Start a new character and use a completely different build.
