Back at Skyrim again

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4, Modding, Skyrim

I’m back at playing Skyrim again. Fallout 4 turned out to be a bore with a un-interesting story in Far Harbor. Made me not wanna try the Nuka World DLC because it just felt like Bleh! 😛 To be honest I havn’t been playing much Skyrim either, I’ve spent like 2-3 weeks just trying to mod it up to be playable, downloading mods and stuff. It takes time when you have a child. Then I started working on 2-3 mods of my own as well. A playerhome/dungeon for evil aligned characters. Some enhencements around the Whiterun area to remind you of the civil war. Here […]

Fallout 4 DLC #10 Sometimes I hate this game!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

After hauling ass back to Far Harbor, bartering for supplies and then back to my base emptying my pockets, restocking what I needed I was ready for The Far Harbor Grand Hotel. I looked at the map and decided to follow the road to the hotel. But quite soon I got distracted by a derelict building at the side of the road. I entered, found some minor loot, ammo and other stuff. I found a dead trapper on a bed, looted what I could from him. And then, suddenly I heard gun fire and noticed bullets hitting close to me. It was an ambush. I […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s # 9 Exploring the north part of the island

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

Setting out in nice weather for once made things easier. When there is fog everywhere it’s really hard to see things in front of you. getting rushed by ghouls or other monsters is quite easy when you don’t see too well. But with clear weather it’s nice for once! But why on earth would anything stay nice? As soon as I stepped outside the former city limits the weather quite quickly turned into the normal fog again. I followed the road north and soon I found a small trapper encampment. Or, they found me! Bullets started to fly, I dodged, I hid, I brought out my […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #8 I have a base!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

Basiclly, what I built is a bunker right behind Old Longfellows house. It required me to use some of my caps to buy a shipment of concrete and one of steel. Scrapping a lot of trees on the island provided me with more wood than I could possibly need. At least for now. I also built a small shack for NPC’s if I get the urge to expand the settlement a bit. Most important is some reliable source for food and water. I could build a water purification system but that would probably leave my base vulnerable for attacks. I hope my current build does […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #7 I need a base!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

I seem to get encumbered way to easy. I need some place to call my home. A place where I can dump the stuff I don’t need at the moment but will need later! And where is the best place to build a base? I don’t want to live close to Children of Atom, religious fanatics. Can’t say I prefer the people in Acadia either. The people in Far Harbor is okay, they just want to get by, kind of. Judging by the map I have a settlement close by Far Harbor. Old Longfellows Cabin. Seems fair. Only bad thing is, it’s not central in […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #6 Children of Atom

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

Since I had this sence of walking in the wrong direction I decided to go through the cave, it seemed to go in the right direction. Turned out the cave was filled with trappers as well and I had to fight my way through it. The resistance I met wasn’t that hard so getting through was easily done. Somewhere along the route I found a sniper rifle with a good scope on, I felt this was a good addition to my arsenal but it also meant I had to leave even more stuff behind since I was more or less encumbered as it were. I […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #5 Acadia

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

Old Longfellow worked his way up the hills and I tried to keep up with him. Suddenly he stops but he continues jogging in the same spot. I think he hit one of those invisible barriers. A little nudge put him on the right track again. Next time he stops it’s because he’s attacked by wolves. It’s quite handy with him as a target, I can just shoot the wolves one by one and this way I also preserves the ammo. We continue running for a while and then it emerges from the mist, Acadia. Old Longfellow promptly offers his companionship but I turn him […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #4 Work in Far Harbor

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

This ghoul-infested island will be my death! After returning to the settlement with the loot from the trapper camp I once again started to explore the ruins outside of Far Harbor. Most of them are empty, but the old church proved to be a hit, while the bowling alley was a bust it turned out. Not loot wise, because the loot was plenty, so was the ghouls and the glowing one kicked the shit out of me. Not once or twice. But four times. Next time I might not be so lucky to have slept (saved) recently. I managed to clear that area out and felt […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #3 Arriving to Far Harbor

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

The next morning I started out early again. It was still quite dark when I left Skinny Malone by the fire. I aimed at the road just up ahead of me and got there without trouble. and without trouble I could move for a while, which felt like a relief since so far I’ve mostly had troubles on my journey. I came upon some kind of store, had some water from the well and bought some radiation free food to eat. Traded away some of the heavier stuff I’ve collected so far to make room for more loot. With a carry weight of max 105 […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #2 Towards Far Harbor

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

And how do I get Far Harbor started then? First I had to break into Kelloggs house and then follow Dogmeat around while tracking Kellog. I left Dogmeat at the pond where you find the cigar and headed back to Diamond City, right outside Diamond City the new radio station popped up. Listening to it started the quest I had worked so hard to get. Yes, I spent almost a day and half trying to get where I was. and finally, I had it. So back into Diamond City, running to Nicks office and talking to Ellie to get the quest going. I found out […]

Fallout 4 DLC’s #1 Getting Started

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

While waiting for the next episode of HITMAN is released or a Elusive Target is announced I decided to once again take on the role as the lone wanderer. I bought the Season Pass on Steam, downloaded the game, started it up for the first time since early January this year and then I realized it, I can’t play this game unless I mod it. Once you’ve played a game with mods, there is no going back to basic. So I spent like 1Âœ day with installing and trying out mods that I wanted just to make the game “playable” for me. Yes, yes, I […]

Fallout 4 modding does matter

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

Hello! Today I just want to show you why modding games is such a big deal. Take Fallout 4 for example. The game is great in it’s own way but it’s also lacking in some areas. It goes beyond me why they didn’t build in shaders and such as extra options for high end machines. If some dude can make it himself the developers should be able to do it also, right? Anyway, it all started with my friend Henrik asking me to help him mod his game. After modding his game I went home and started to look through Nexusmods myself. Except for finding the […]

Fallout 4 summary

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fallout 4

About a week ago I finished Fallout 4 and now when I have some distance to it I feel I can write a short summary of the game. Following the discussions flowing back and forth on the official Bethesda forums there’s been a lot of hate and love for the game. Myself, I’m a bit ambivalent. The first 100 hours or so was very exciting. There was this fantastic new world to explore. All the possibilities with settlements, weapon and armor mods and new interesting followers. Then I met Preston Garvey and his infinite Minutemen quests. Luckily I found ways to avoid getting them after […]
