If you’re one of the many talented creative members of the Fallout 4 modding community, you may want to cast an eye at the details of the game’s incoming PC patch.
Fallout 4 players on PC can expect the first official patch to be downloaded at sometime today, if it hasn’t already. The patch is remarkably similar to the beta patch released three weeks ago but with a few new fixes.
As much as Bethesda hopes to fix with this patch, a number of users are reporting that some bugs still remain. Among these bugs is a new one that sees unofficial mods that can be added to the PC version of the game, no longer working.
For some mods Nexus Mod Manager has a fix but others are going to need to be updated by the creator of the mod itself.
There is some good news though. The update adds two new features to the game; it allows number pad keys to be remapped and users can now remap the Activate action on Quick Containers.
Strangely however, a number of users have reported that since the patch, the number pad keys don’t seem to work at all.
Performance improvements have been made to the inside of Corvega Assembly Plant which should reportedly stop stuttering and lag.
Other improvements accompanying the patch include
- Optimisations to skinned decal rendering
- Fixed issue with player becoming stuck in terminals
- Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
- Fixed issue with “When Freedom Calls” where the quest would not complete
- During “Confidence Man” fixed issue where player’s health would continuously regenerate
- Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games
- Fixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly
Gamespot has reported that PS4 and Xbox One Fallout 4 players can expect this same patch later in the week though when exactly the patch will roll out is not yet known.[Source – Fallout 4 Steam Page]
