The engine features a variety of visual effects not present in previous Bethesda games such as motion blur, temporal anti-aliasing, height fog, dynamic dismemberment, screen space reflections, filmic tone mapping, an updated material system—for wet textures—among numerous others. The engine allows the Bethesda team to add more dynamic lighting to every scene as well as 'paint surfaces with realistic materials'. Bethesda released an example on how the engine works: 'When a rain storm rolls in, our new material system allows the surfaces of the world to get wet, and a new cloth simulation system makes cloth, hair, and vegetation blow in the wind.'
The updated Creation Engine allows for a more advanced character creation system, which uses sculpting—forgoing the series of sliders present in previous games. In detail, the new character creation system introduces a new, freeform, slider-free facial editor controlled via dynamic, real-time modeling interface.With regards to the aforementioned fluid animations, the updated engine also allows a much more open approach to conversations with NPCs—wherein the camera views can change depending on the player's preference from a first-person view to a cinematic third-person view—compared to Fallout 3 's rigid and instanced conversation system. The protagonist features dynamic dialogue, which is context sensitive and allows players to back out of a conversation. In Howard's words, 'you are free to walk away anytime if you want, or you can even shoot him in the face.' Marketing and release.

If you wish Fallout 4 was more like New Vegas, this mod is for you.Since Fallout 4’s release last November, a small but vocal group of the Fallout fanbase has been denouncing the game’s developer Bethesda in favour of Fallout: New Vegas’s developer Obsidian. Given that Obsidian was composed of former Interplay developers–the people who made the original Fallout games–Fallout: New Vegas was seen by this small but vocal group as a return to form.One of the main reasons Fallout 4 did not impress New Vegas diehards is the perk system. Where some people enjoyed its simplicity and variety, New Vegas fans lamented the lack of traits and cool modifiers that would change your character statistics in meaningful ways.These same diehards will continue to pray that the rumours of Obsidian heading up are true, there is a new mod for Fallout 4 that can tide them over. The new mod adds traits into the game.
The Traits and More mod, made by Cirosan, adds a number of new traits and a few new perks into the game.Here’s Cirosan’s description of Fallout 4’s traits:Essentially, Traits are something that add both a valuable advantage AND a great disadvantage to your character, making them even more unique. © 2018 The GameAddik Network is helping fellow addicts feed the need for gaming.
