    These two are the hardest human characters I've come across in a while.. This is about my 20th attempt at trying to kill them.

    I went to throw a grenade at Savoy and he shot it the very second it left my hand and it blew up in my face xD

    Also... I am using this mod so muzzle flash from weapons create shadows > Dynamic Muzzle Shadows by Troy Irving : http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/2571/?

    Finally bought the game. Running at 60fps+ with lots of texture and UI mods, Reshade and 3K DSR. Only thing I nerfed was the God Rays because they tank performance. Enjoying the game, although it still feels a bit clunky compared to games like Skryim, Far Cry and Witcher. I can see myself spending way more time on this than I did FO3. I'm super impressed with the TAA. It's better than most AAA games and I hate aliasing & shimmering with a passion.

    2 tips: The Load Accelerator doesn't work if you have your fps capped. Download the 2K/4K texture mods from NexusMods instead of the Official Texture patch. Much smaller and better performance and quality.

    I had to uninstall this game after realising there were no new experiences to be had. If fallout 3 didn't have endless late game crashes as a result of save file buildup I would be able to say that across the board ot was 10x better than #4 but fallout 4 was a decent game with good visuals and good performance sans godrays so it had it's moments. But they built a story so it would be insincere for me to aupport the brotherhood or instititute. If they had made it more grey I could have had a better time on new playthroughs rather than the same result over and over.

    The fact that they tied the ballistic weave to the railroad was a bad choice. It is by far the most significant gameplay element from a faction. It should have been a neutral story choice.

    Seriously??? 3K (what exact dimensions?) on a 1070 at 60FPS in this game? With my 1080 at max clocks this game can't even hold a stable 60FPS at 1080p with high settings for me. Maybe you just haven't reached the parts where the games falls apart, and I can get my FPS down to 42 while just standing still with nothing going on near me. Do you mind mentioning your exact settings for me to try?

    As for the mods, I did see that the load accelerator isn't able to work with RTSS capping enabled, but my frametimes are terrible without RTSS. Haven't tried the texture mods, but I did try out the official texture pack. It does look better, but makes the game over 100GB!

    2880 x 1620 DSR. +170 core and +550 mem OC. Here is my mod list (using NexusModManager and LOOT to set the order) and tweaks:


    Also, to save fps (and because I find the default God Rays too bright anyway) create a file called lighting.txt in your game directory with the following:

    gr grid 2
    gr scale .1
    gr maxcascade 1

    Load your game and type "bat lighting" in the console each time you play the game. Also type "gr off" at night to save fps (when you can't see God Rays but the game still loads them anyway even with it disabled in the tweaker). Then type "gr on" during the day to reactivate them.

    Uninstall the Bethesda Texture DLC immediately.

    I also use Reshade for color/contrast correction. I use this: https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/4656/ with my own modifications to SweetFX.cfg

    Save frequently. OCing plus lots of mods equals more chance of crashes. But its worth it because the game looks great for me now.

    Can someone please tell me which is the best high-res texture pack for this game? The official high-res pack was very disappointing.

    I stopped at lvl 35 over a year ago and not had an interest to resume. Tried to get back into it (fresh restart) after some new DLCs, but remembered what annoyed me with this game. Most of the game is great, enjoyed much of it, but some missions are pretty f'ing stupid and just time wasters. Hate unnecessary dialogue you have to sit thru (yes, you can skip it, and I usually do, but you shouldnt have to). Main protagonists terrible voice acting is very immersion breaking. Had to use a mod to deepen his voice but still dont like the way he stresses on words or points, so damn artificial. Some missions I dont like I end them with console commands.

    Dont mind the settlement building, but that Preston Garvey with his endless fetch this or help settlers missions kind of gets to you. Love the robotics workbench with one of the DLCs where you can now craft robots according to your specs and needs.

    So I finally got Fallout 4 working again. When I was going back through all my mods I found, by far, the best and most immersive new addition to my collection. Behold:

    Kind of pointless if NPCs dont react to your remarks. Now if the wife whacks you with a frying pan for calling her butt ugly, THEN we're talking.

    So I'm just now getting around to using the NMM, LOOT and most of these mods. The guy who made most of those just put them all in one, so that was nice.

    Vivid Fallout All in one - http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/25714/?

    I've managed to get that mod and the "Creatures" one you linked installed, but the "General" one that you linked that really replaces the meat of the official high res pack is confusing me. I clicked the green "Download (NMM)" button and it downloaded a bunch of stuff but it hasn't activated in game. Looking at the files associated with that mod shows a bunch of options and I'm not sure what has to be done manually or with the NMM.

    Load times using the Load Accelerator have gone from ~3 seconds in the vanilla game to ~10 seconds with mods installed, so I know some or most of them are being loaded.

    EDIT - I apparently have no idea what I'm doing. I can't get more than 1 mod working at a time. First it was improved map, then installing Vivid Fallout through NMM makes improved map stop working. I even did the whole manual install of FlaconOil's HD texture pack with no luck. I'm anxious to play the game again but want to get these mods working, so any help with NMM and LOOT would be much appreciated. I sleep now.

    Just a question. I just reinstalled Fallout 4 and I'm patched to 1.5. Got the Nvidia graphical options toggled.

    Should I bother patching it past 1.5? Any major changes/improvements to the game?

    I downloaded the unofficial patch but when I copied it to the data folder and started the game it says in the txt that I must go to the mods section. If I go to the main menu and click on mods then it says Bethesda error, must log in.

    Is this normal? I thought patching this game would be straightforward.

    Make sure you read all the instructions and some of the latest comments on NexusMods for each mod to see if anyone had conflicts or other problems. Some interconnected mods need to be installed in sequence.

    You can uninstall the Developer's Texture Pack first if you have it then reactivate the texture mods. FlaconOil's HD Texture Pack didn't install properly for me so I just copied the remaining files over manually afterwards.

    With LOOT make sure you click the Update Master List button before sorting. There should be no error messages. I had trouble with a few mods at first that prevented LOOT sorting properly.

    I really wish they would stop trying to monetize a phenomenon that exists and is successful precisely because it is not monetized.

    I was running around the town "goodneighbor" I think is the name. I was at a monument surrounded by fire, then it started raining. My FPS tanked! For no reason at all. I've seen this happen before too. I checked msi ab, my gpu1 usage dropped from 95% to 20% while gpu2 was staying at 95%. Alt tabbing, moving to a different spot, nothing would trigger my gpu1 usage to raise. I then noticed my vram usage was over 9,000mb when my cards only have 8,000mb. Then I checked my system ram usage was at 10,000 - 11,000mb. When ever I run this game my system ram never goes over 6,000mb and my vram never goes over 7,000. I have 12 gb ram in my system btw. Am I experiencing what's called a memory leak? Is that common in this game? Anyone else have this happen to them?
