  1. Welcome to the forums @keepupthegoodwork And yes, allowing your condition to fluctuate (knowing you can restore it at night with a good rest) is a key survival strategy in the game. You can do much more with a little bit of risk and survive far longer than if you try to stay indoors at 100% condition all the time.
  2. I always thought of the Camp Office as part of a private campground or outfitter due to the lack of government things (i.e. flags, desks, park brochures, etc.)
  3. It has come up in discussion with the volunteer mods but obviously there's no confirmation that they'll be able to do it @MarrowStone. With the release date now only weeks away the team is completely focused on that.
  4. Welcome to the forums @Longshot! As stated above, no need to place your bedroll outside the shelter. Just select the bedroll from the radial menu while already inside the shelter.
  5. Nope! While I originally wanted to do that my thesis was due at the end of June so I was far to busy to even attempt that! Now that it's submitted I have some time to finally get back on the forums again
  6. An overhauled fire mechanic would involve the use of kindling and modifying the %chance to light for different tinder/kindling/fuel combinations to give fire starting more granularity.
  7. Hey @Miniwizard. I knew I left a lot of items off the list but not a lot of people had read/responded to my original post. As a consequence, the items on the list were only those posted to the thread before I made the poll. The categories were those in bold in the original posts - I tried not to change anything so folks could go read the author's original intent. House junk in particular was @Uriel's idea and involves using "junk" items to customise and personalise your living space.
  8. While these do exist it would be very unlikely the player could find any. Tranquilizer darts would only be used by park rangers or police and thus far we have seen no installations in the world belonging to either institution. A regular person would certainly not have access to them.
  9. And welcome back!
  10. And I'm just glad I dodged the bullet when the PipBoy Fallout 4 version sold out before I could buy it and thus I decided to wait for the reviews before purchasing! I agree though that the power armor is a mixed blessing. It is way too common in Commonwealth (a full suit, untouched, in a raider base, for 200 years? really?), it doesn't really feel like infantry armor (I tore through an army of super mutants in power armor... but my suit is being shredded by claws?), and the battery thing is a cheap gimmick. Rather than make power armor rare, or hard to use, or as an incentive to join the brotherhood, or any better idea the devs just decided "lets give away these things like candy but make them batter powered so players have another status bar to manage". The earlier Fallout games did a way better job.
  11. And we're live (finally!) Note that due to people voting with the placeholder that there is 1 extra vote for both blizzards and items freezing in the cold.
  12. Exactly. I've been out in bad weather and thought I knew where I was only to exit the bush ~100m or more from where I was expecting
  13. Wow! It's now July. Amazing how time flies when you're super busy! The poll should be live shortly.
  14. Yeah, there are places where this can happen but nowhere in Canada
  15. Blood trails have been a problem for a painfully long time
