Yeah, I think interpret survival mode in a different way - suffering from hunger, thirst, enemies being extremely deadly, no magical fast travel, etc, I think it works great. It's an entirely unique experience to the vanilla game already.

I guess for me it's more of a thematic thing, as opposed to the game's save mechanic being nerfed, which I find a tad arbitrary personally.

Jez, I'll look into the sleeping bag. Not ideal, since you're gaining an hours worth of thirst/hunger (plus you can get diseases from sleeping bags).

I'll probably end up just getting a save mod tbh; potentially losing chunks of playing time doesn't really work for me these days.

Okay, so despite my short time left in LA and imminent move back to Northern California, I've found time to spend in Fallout 4. What's given me ever more reason to show up? This mod:
https://simsettlements.com/web/wiki/ind ... =Main_Page

The newest incarnation let's the Lone Survivor set a local leader for each settlement, and walk away. The settlers build the whole damn place themselves. A player can micromanage the holy bejesus out of everyone, or do like me and go off shooting things then come back home to see the new city rising.

This makes one of my very favorite games of all time move up that short list a few slots. I'll be playing FO4 for years now, thanks to this amazing mod.

Now I have time to move all my personal crap to my house in Diamond City, dress it up like crazy, and build what I want there. Totally bachelor pad looking place, too, I might add, and getting better every day. And when I go back to any of the settlements with leaders (three so far with this new play-through), it looks just that much better than last time I visited. I'm looking forward to the settlers leveling their own city from zero to 1 - when the residences will start having some lighting inside, for example. Cool to have vendors show up and build stuff, and one place has a doctor which is cool to visit. I feel like a part of a growing community instead of dicking around for hours trying to make walls and floors freakin click together.

My signature is like a time capsule from the Wild West of the internet :o

I had a great time on my Survival playthrough, once I'd got the save mod installed. I built up Hangman's Alley as my main base of operations and got the supply routes feeding into it. Barely even touched the main story, there's so much other stuff to do.

I did really enjoy the normal game mode, but it really comes alive in Survival when you're meticulously planning each sortie.
