Did we need another Fallout thread?
Would not be surprised if FO76 is actually a glorified testbed for Bethesda's new Creation Engine changes.
I just wanna understand why those good changes weren’t implemented like seriously imagine being on the dev team and randomly deciding one day to actively make the servers and client side run like complete shit for no reason
Probably to reduce risk.
And forcing players to play the buggy artificially laggy build that can be bypassed by re enabling the features anyways was a better idea?
Bethesda games always have some of the neater features tunable only through the .inis because they first they cannot be fucked to make a good interface for tweaking them, and secondly they seem to think that the defaults for them are good enough as they are (no shit). Most serious modding guides for these games advise the player to get BethINI and tweak the configuration files through it instead of relying on the shitty vanilla launchers.
