Building player housing and settlements through crafting is one of Fallout 4’s biggest new features – IGN explore the limits of post-apocalyptic architecture
How High Can You Build in Fallout 4 – IGN Plays from IGN
Whether building a fortress to discourage raiders or simply exploring the Minecrafting aspects of Fallout 4, the new crafting features in Bethesda’s Fallout 4 allow players to let their imaginations run wild in terms of the structures and set-ups they can create in the Commonwealth wasteland. Currently I’m trying to figure out how to wipe my ass in the game, but eventually I’m sure I will explore the crafting options and settlement construction options that the game offers – after all, this is a video game role playing game and what is an rpg without some elements of, you know, role playing? I can’t currently decide on whether to do it in Sanctuary Hills in Concord or whether to do it on this hill near the game’s equivalent of Chestnut Hill. I’m tempted to make a settlement on a hill since it will be easier to see people coming, but Sanctuary Hills has the advantage of, you know, being the actual character’s home in the game. So far I’m not enthralled with the story, but I’m not really paying it any attention whatsoever. I tend to take things slow in the beginning – especially when the whole world is at your fingertips. In the case of Fallout 4’s extensive gun crafting and settlement building system, you could probably sink tens of hours into those gaming modes alone without ever touching upon the core gameplay. I’ll keep you guys updated on my progress as I make it!
