the drink choice of the wasteland

my Fav type of hog character development is like. him learning how to loosen up around rat and have fun again, bc rat is eager and impulsive and has big plans and just wants to fuck off and have fun while doing it and like. hog is old and tired but comes to an ultimatum that his choices are be a sour grump just to try (and probably fail) to keep rat grounded and continue being miserable, or go along with rats schemes and have some fun bc he’s lived in a wasteland for decades stewing in his own trauma and guilt and decides Fuck It I Might As Well Have Fun Before I Die/Get Killed

like treat yo self but with stealing the crown jewels instead. yeah sure kill some bots and blow up a businessman. break into an arcade to steal energy drinks and plushies. Who Cares Have Fun Steal Everything Die Whenever

Fallout 4 Headcannons

Just compiled a list for fun of things I’ve either seen and liked, or I think would fit myself, plus some stuff I’ve put in my fanfics. There are TONS more of great headcannons that are equally as amazing and valid, this is just for fun. Yes I also did rearrange some things in game (ie. MacCready left handed) but they were little so shhh. Took major liberties with Strong. Non specification of culture/gender/sexuality/etc just means I haven’t decided or don’t care. I tried not to include many things that are already canon or everyone knows about.

Choice and consequence

I’m a big fan of choice and consequences. That is what makes this game fun your decisions have an impact on if you survive or not. Taking risks, should I go try to to loot the wasteland buildings or stay in the wild where it might be safer? Anyhow we’ve added a wellness system that now governs your hit points and stamina pools. If you eat home cooked health foods and drink teas and such your wellness grows. If you get infected, catch diseases and eat raw meat and stuff you might end up losing wellness. Death costs you a whopping 10 points against it.

Anyhow I made it so antibiotics give you 5 wellness up front, and some additional wellness over time. This little change gives you a decision when you find them. Should I eat them now and increase my wellness? Or save them in case I get infected? Or even eat all of them right now and try to max out my HP to 200?

On top of that running camp fires and forges, cutting trees down create a heat map which will attract a horde if the area gets hot enough with activity. It cools down over time so if your quiet and not cooking and forging non stop you’ll be fine. BUT the need for antibiotics and gasoline will have folks running their campfires and forges non stop and create another situation to solve. I hope to solve this problem by making an alchemist tower a few blocks away from my real fort so the hordes can go there and not find anything.

Anyhow, its fun when so many systems start to interact together. A dead animal can eventually stink up an area to attract a horde now too, so clean up the dead bodies or kill one at your enemies doorstep and he will have a nice surprise show up after it stinks the air up for a half day or more :)

Another nice change is food doesn’t give you much health, so those piles of painkillers you have laying around will finally have a good use.

What do you want to appear in Fallout 4?

Here are just a few things that I’d like to have:

⚫️ The ability to create and customize your own base.

⚫️ Pets. I freaking want the ability to catch an animal and make it a pet.

⚫️ Romance options with your companions. Not sex. I want he option to learn about them, gain their approval from actions and dialogue. I want them to worry about me if my health gets too low.

⚫️ Body sliders. I want to customize my body type, and have it change depending on my actions.

Drink too much? Beer belly.

Eat too much junk food? Chubby bunny.

Constantly jumping up mountains? Strong legs and an amazing ass.

⚫️ The ability to play or become a ghoul.

⚫️ More hair options. I want long hair. Curly hair, puffy hair, braided hair, etc.

⚫️ Rides. I want to ride those fucking motorcycles! God! I’ve been wanting it since New Vegas.

⚫️ More factions with armor, weapons, culture, territory unique to them.

⚫️ Camping options.

⚫️ Jobs. I would like to be able to become a roaming tradesman. NPCs coming up to you for random stuff. And you get a nice pack Bramin.

⚫️ Choices that effect the entire wasteland. You do good things, it helps people. Towns are being built, more people appear. You do bad, people are being hunted, towns are being raided. Etc.

⚫️ I want more children NPCs. And if the option to adopt them once you have a good base set up with a companion to watch over them.

And I want them to grow up. I know it doesn’t make sense, that would mean everyone else aging too. But I would like to see them grow up, meet a nice farmer, move out, get hitched, have or adopt a few babes for their own.

⚫️ I want empires that I can help, crush, or take over.

⚫️ I wan to to have the option to continue playing even after the final mission.

⚫️ If they could have just as much emotion in 4 as they did in 3, that would be great.

That’s all I got. But please tell me what you’d like to see or have in Fallout 4
