You play the game how you choose to, if you don't give a s*** about building a settlement or engaging with the crafting system, you probably don't need to do much scavenging.

Scavenging/Looting is really easy on the game I think doesn't take long to get what you need

It's a ballache to remember what you need and don't when you have no more carry space. It's easy sure, but in no way fun so I jettisoned it

I've been a bit negative on this thread, but I ended up paying 25 quid and for the quantity/quality of game that's more than fair <ok>
It's a good game, just frustrating in some respects (features/quirks Bethseda's engine seems tethered too for 15 years)

Really? I generally just go with anything with springs, gears, screws, oil, nuclear material or aluminium as these are the rarer items so to speak. Especially when modding weapons.

On a sidenote how many bobble heads has everyone got ?

Really enjoying this game. I keep losing hours just looking round though and picking up / scrapping stuff! I quite like that its a sort of FPS which is my preference but still has a story and other aspects to it. I think its a really great game

Hello fellow Fallout fans. Just wondering if anyone here has ever successfully set up their own gaming server, or considered doing it? Thinking this could be good for Fallout 4. I found an article on setting up a Minecraft server and I'm just wondering if this can also be applied to other games. I really do have very little idea about this sort of thing so I apologise in advance if this is a stupid question. If anyone could shed some light on it would be much appreciated!!

Fallout is a solo game, I doubt it would get much benefit from a gaming server.

It's fun for a while but really, really repetitive.

It's also too easy and the range of enemies is far too small.

Basically you're just doing the same quest over and over after a while fighting the same enemies or slightly harder versions of the same enemies.

Unless you play on survival, then it becomes a totally different game where every trip out of your bases is a risk and needs to be planned for accordingly.

It's a huge map that is extremely easy to get lost in. Did you ever play skyrim? If so its basically that, but with guns.
