Biggest things looks like memory and stability improvements.

And performance improvements for corvega plant.
I just hope for better frames and loading times.

Hopefully it doesn't fix the Resource Shipment duplication glitch and the increase settlement size glitch.


Unfortunately it doesn't fix the Old Guns/Radio Freedom glitch that prevents you from completing the Minuteman quest line...

performance inside corvega? what about performance in the big city areas... framerate seemed way worse than anything in corvega... weird. (i did crash inside corvega so maybe thats what was fixed?)

Still waiting on fix for the game glitching out during conversations. Had one where a dialogue prompt didn't pop come up, then the all button commands stopped working. Had to reload the same spot a few times just to fix the issue.

I agree. The supply/ammo glitches make the game 10000x more enjoyable for me. I have very limited playtime and they help me enjoy my playthrough.

The game breaking stuff needs to be a priority.

They need to fix the game breaking bug where certain key items can be missed forever if a corpse isn't looted before it disappears.

I wounder if they fixed the settlement XP exploit. For those that don't know you can spam and scrap copper statues (copper which you can get from the resource duplication exploit) and level up really fast.

Me too, but not witcher 3. Just random backlog of indies that I can clear out.

Probably going to wait for 1 more f4 patch.
Me too. Most of the times I can't even aim right without VATS.

if they end up fixing the settlement size glitch my main base is screwed.... i zero out the castle every chance i get and after every time i build...im sure im at least 4-5 times over the limit (with remarkably no real performance hit yet.)

Will be interesting to see if there's any difference. I spend plenty of time talking about how I rarely see the difference between 30fps and 60fps but Fallout 4 is killing me with its shoddy performance. I think the key is smoothness rather than framerate. A smooth 30fps beats an inconsistent 45fps. Still feels like it's dipping to 15 or worse at times on me, though.

They desperately need to scrap this shitty engine. If, in this new gen, they still can't make it perform right and it's still riddling with glitches, then what fucking good is it? Very disappointing.

Couldn't agree more. Enough of Gamebryo, ffs.

Whatever performance problems Corvega has don't compare to the insane jank of some of the late-game quests. I hope they didn't just target that one specific area of the map.

OMG! I'm going to have to try to go in Cambden once I download/install it.

I'm kinda scared, if it doesn't fix this bug I'm going to be completely annoyed/worried that they won't fix that bug (I cannot go into Cambden at all, just skirt the edges of it. Already discovered I can't do any brotherhood quests other than join them cause of this and have been told at some point I won't be able to continue the main quest since I can't go into it). I mean it's a huge bug, a decent amount of people have it, but supposedly it fixes it for most people (but not all. Which worries me that since most people get it fixed, if you are not one of those, BEthesda will have considered it good enough anyways).

Does it fix the Monsignor Plaza game breaking bug?
If it was the one they were beta testing on PC a few weeks back supposedly it does for many people but not all (That's the one I was just talking about). What worries me more is it isn't even listed as one of the fixes (and that's pretty big you'd think it would get listed as one of the fixes).

I doubt they'll fix it unless it can potentially break the game. Bethesda have stated in the past that they don't bother fixing things that are harmless and potentially fun. Putting a basket over someone's head and robbing them in Skyrim wasn't intended behavior, but they decided not to patch it because people liked it.

People need to get over this dream. RAM size has gone up 16x while HD speeds have been stagnant from last gen to this gen. It's a miracle loading times are not worse.

Some games look better than Fallout and load faster. Is not all HDD fault.

Fixed it for me which was a relief. Still kind of absurd it took them this long to put out a single patch for a game that everyone's biggest complaint with is bugs/performance
Yeah, I just tried it and roamed all over Cambridge trying to find Monsigner Plaza. Never found it but did find myself in an area I totally recognized was one that I would reliably crash if I went into (Plus honestly from the edges I found of the area most of the area I was in should not have been enterable if the bug was still there).

I'm so fucking happy!!!! That's the biggest thing I wanted fixed. The only other thing that is annoying me is get aroundable so while I'd love it to be fixed at least it's not gamebreaking (my radio randomly dies and I have to find a previous save to fix it. Usually though since I save often and it's pretty noticeable when it happens I don't have to go too far. still annoying to lose progress and I do get sucked into the game enough that I usually don't notice right away when it happens).

Hopefully though for the people who have reported it hasn't fixed the problem they will keep working on it, cause it is really gamebreaking. It's only cause there is so much other stuff to do have I been able to keep playing the game (I've been making sure to very slowly progress the main game in order to hopefully not hit the dead end before they fixed it. I apparently succeeded).

What a game looks like has little to do with how much and how the data is loaded.If games are using 4GB of data, it needs to transfer 4GB from the HD that operates at 50MB/s. Of course they don't have to load it all at once, but we don't know what is needed and what isn't.

I'm not defending FO4, they could help us all by letting us fast travel from inside buildings. That is a strange design choice. I often have to zone 3-4 times in a row to get to one place from another.

Dammit, they didn't fix the Taking Independence bug, the requirement still shows I needs to Destroy the Egg Clutches and Meet Minute in the Courtyard. Preston Garvey just walking around the courtyard and every time I approach him, he just keep saying "we needs to focus and take the castle back". And I have 2 missions Ghoul problems at the Somerville and Taking Point: Outpost Zimonja which require me to talk to Preston to finished it. Hope they fix this shit on their next update.

that vendor glitch where you could sell back unlimited ammo no longer works for me. Definitely feels smoother though.
