Bugs in Fallout 76: Don’t you hate them? No, we’re not talking about the kind that you deal with by pumping rounds of ammunition into, although odds are good you’re not terribly fond of those either. We’re talking about issues like item duplication exploits and uncomfortable apparel issues with animation and clipping. The good news is that the most recent patch for the game is devoted to killing those bugs, pumping (metaphorical) ammo into fixing these issues based on community feedback.

This ultimately means that, for example, there’s no longer an item duplication exploit possible via the C.A.M.P. system, paints can now correctly be applied to pieces of Scout armor, and the friend list will no longer have an issue where sometimes it’s impossible to scroll properly. Game-changing? Probably not. Welcome improvements to the game that result in a less buggy and more polished experience all around? Probably. The focus on increased community feedback is also relevant with the game’s test server for the upcoming Steel Reign update, which is even offering pennants for people who test and give feedback. If you hate those bugs, letting the developers know about them is the best way to slay them.

And it won’t even require any ammunityion.

I keep waiting for the day when the devs are given the time to fix/improve the games AWFUL and shoddy looking reflections. So tired of non-reflective surfaces in this game looking like they are coated in super shiny plastic wrap. Wooden doors/floors, cardboard boxes, you name it… its often shiny!

The frustrating part is there is a very specific rendering value in the games config files which 100% fixes this issue!… However… editing the config value also completely visually removes water graphics!!! ARGH.

That may be you? The game has many hilarious problems but never had that issue.

its also something that is subjective, as others have it, and dont mind it.

Just like how some people dont even notice pop-in that happens in games, where others (like myself) cant stand it.

For example, the images in this link

some people, such as the first image with the door, might look at it and think it looks fine. Then you have things like this table… which are in an abandoned building, years after a nuke.. with not a drop of dust or dirt on it. Who is using lemon fresh pledge on this thing?

These $&@+! need to put text chat into this game. Slip it into the to-do list and get it done. I won’t be playing again until this happens and that pisses me off, cause I love Fallout Appalachia.

I’ve been using the text chat mod for about a month now. I rarely encounter people also using it, but it works well as a global chat. Also nice for trading or getting together for Encyptid and similar.
Only downside is that it relies on SFE which breaks after every single patch and needs manual updating.
Using the mod has made me enjoy the game more so I recommend it

mods only work on custom servers, right? Or is this more of a 3rd party application you run in the background?

Modding 76 is pretty much the same as modding fallouts 3, 4 and NV, but since it’s an online game you’re limited to model/texture replacements and UI features.
It is unsupported by Bethesda, but as long as you don’t dupe, create hacked super weapons or teleport to the dev room, they don’t really care.

you will need SFE as well which the download page will link you towards.
you also might need to create an empty folder in fallout76/data called “configuration”.
It’ll break on every update, and the author of the mods usually gets a new version out in a day or two (time time it took 14-ish hours), but beyond that no further action is needed.

Yeah, I used it too. Handy for trades and grouping maybe, but a shite replacement for what should be a standard. They gotta fix it.
