    Concrete foundations clip into the ground, allowing you to level large areas.

    Are you on PC? If so, there are some mods that help a bunch.

    Yeah I'm on PC. Which ones are good to have? I had a few mods in FO3 and FO:NV to make life easier but so far don't feel like I've needed it in 4.

    Foundations definitely help. If you don't have all the expansions, you'll have to use the concrete foundation in the "Wood" building material section, under "Floors." That's also where to find the piece you need to add a second floor, since that requires a piece completely different from a roof or the normal floor pieces.

    Strangely, the option for an internal Staircase is actually in the wooden floors section, too, and not the wooden stairs section. If you want to build up without having to put stairs all over the outside walls, the internal ones are the way to go. They can create weird gaps in the floors/ceilings, but you can just fill those in with a thin/flat roof piece.

    I'm getting ready to. I started the quest for it, but have sidetracked off on other things, as I normally do.


    I was debating on leaving it alone for a while, because I am doing a lot of back-end things for a YouTube channel, and I am definitely planning on a modded playthrough.

    I've been having a lot of fun in Far Harbor. Not super far into it, but there's some hilarious sidequests. The Hotel one is great so far, look for a Mr Handy just outside town to start that.

    As someone playing on survival mode, let me say that Far Harbor is pretty big :lol:

    Its a really great addon with a pretty cool story and lots of neat places to explore.

    Holy sh!t, the puzzle/tower defense-style quest for Arcadia/Children of Atom is the most tedious godd@mned thing I've done in ages. Ugh. It was interesting at first, but it went on twice as long as it really needed to.

    Goddamn those things are crazy. I have The Last Minute, and usually 1 shot things like death claws and super mutant behemoths. So I find a one of those ....ers setting in a van and decide, "hey, let's see how tough this thing really is." Pull out my gauss rifle and fire.

    After 5 shots it was still at half health. I had to whip out the plasma rifle in order to finish it off because it was getting uncomfortably close and sending its spawn at me.

    Has anyone seen the fanmade Nuka Break short series? The pilot was mediocre at best, season 1 was pretty alright and season 2 so far (only got 25 minutes in or so before work) looks solid. The Red Star episode is also pretty good. It's all on YouTube so I'd recommend anyone who likes fallout to check it out.

    I'm a big fan of the Fallout series and I'm sorry to debut here with a stupid question:
    how do I begin Far Harbor?
    I downloaded it and it appears in the add-on list, but when I'm in game nothing happens....
    (Xbox One, season pass)
    with Automatron everything went well.... I was at 98% of the game

    Everyone keeps on saying I should take Nick with me to Far Harbor or I lose something. I am a sworn lone wandered, does anyone know what will I actually miss if I don't roll with the mechanic bastard?

    I think you had to do a prequest started by Nick or his assistant.
