    Geforce.com tried tweaking that value too in their FO4 guide.

    11 cripples even highest end hardware. Though it is mostly the engine failing to handle everything it's thrown I guess, rather than actually running out of power on hardware.

    Another guess was the game generates so many draw calls that DX11 becomes a bottleneck (not in Geforce.com).

    Question for the more experienced wastelanders:

    My next main quest is travel to C.I.T. to apparently kill a courser and get access to Institute.

    Roughly how much of the main story remains at this point? You can give a ballpark figure as either number of missions or playtime.

    Asking to decide whether to do more side quests or advance the story.

    Also how did you like the Far Harbor DLC? Just unlocked it and the area is immediately offputting with constant radiation and fog.
    Which I guess make sense but it doesn't exactly provide incentive for exploration.

    Plus whoever thought of restricting .45-70 ammo to Far Harbor area only is a genius game designer, I must say...

    I have played the main story up until it makes you chose between the institute and the synthetic's.. or.. railroad were they called?... since then I have only been doing anything else but the main quest because I couldn't decide who to chose, I'm pretty sure I've played it for more than 40 hours since stopping the main story xD

    I thought Far Harbor was cool... All you need is a suit to protect against the radiation.

    Yeah played a bit more of FH, got to Acadia. At daytime the environment didn't feel as drab, for some reason I had arrived at FH always at night before, both the first time and when fast traveling back and forth.

    The setting / story involved seems interesting.

    There's still a fair bit of the main story left - I'd say you're about 2/3 of the way there.

    The irradiated fog in Far Harbor definitely provides a challenge, although it's nothing like the Glowing Sea. As long as you have a good stock of radaways or some other method of healing radiation damage (e.g., second-tier of Solar Powered) then it shouldn't be too difficult. The most challenging aspect of the island for me was the mountainous terrain.

    On my latest playthroughs, I basically stopped at Mass Fusion - the point where you need to pick a side and knock out one or more of the other factions. It'd be cool if there was a way to establish peace between all the factions.

    It has been a while, but I believe I made a save and backed it up before choosing a faction to "help" out. I then went down each path in every possible way, loading that master save once I had fully completed a faction's story. If I got tired of doing that, I'd just do side stuff, get some mods and just explore.

    Granted, this isn't my favorite Fallout game by a longshot, but it is fun to get lost in. I particularly enjoyed the story possibilities of Far Harbor. Then once I get bored with F4, I go back to F2, New Vegas and F3. :)

    I've yet to continue the main story. I still have to go somewhere to look for my son. Should just start a new game at this point. It's been years since I played.

    I went after Kellogg with the intent of doing many horrible things to him because he STOLE MY SON, and KILLED MY HUSBAND! "my character was female" xD.... and I did many bad things to Kellogg's body...

    I felt like the story kinda makes you feel bad by trying to make the bad guy look like a sort of good guy....

    But I didn't care I had many bullets and explosive..... explosives mainly with the word Kellogg written on them....

    Same, I also went in with my usual amount of overleveling so I could just pester him to death.

    Wha? Oh you shot me. No, this is how you shoot someone!
