It's worth a try if you're willing to give up some S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points. Also not sure if you are using Super sledge in your build, but I hear that takes out baddies pretty quickly in VATS without setting off the nuke.

Do I need perception or agility for pickpocketing? I am actually using this unique revolutionary sword that does radiation poisoning.

The wiki says "Increasing the Perception stat can increase your chance at a successful use of Pickpocket by approximately 2% per point."

Also, you will never have a 100% success rate. The highest is 90%.

I believe you might actually need Rank 4 in pick pocketing to steal equipped items.

So your ninja skills don't exclude the use of a tactical nuclear device, but guns are a no no;)

Didn't think of the value on the open market for a mini nuke till now.

With melee build can you use jet and hit them multiple x's before they can set it off? Sometimes I get 3 suiciders at once and have to use jet to get all 3 with shooter build, but not sure if jet makes you fast enough to hit twice before boom with melee.

I havent done a melee build yet, but will be my next one...currently I am playing if I get killed I have to start over...only way to make suicide setting challenging with overseer build (after playing it through 1.5x). Otherwise I run/gun with no care since I rarely get killed, this way it is actually exciting again, like first playthrough. Though i just got killed last night at level 24 via delayed robot boom...currently back at level 5 after few hours.

Melee is somewhat disappointing in Fallout 4. New Vegas actually had better melee and unarmed combat, with many unique unlockable moves via perks while Fallout 4 has practically none, just the default attacks and some funny contextual ones like body slams.

Has anyone noticed how incredibly limited character, NPC's, and enemy shadows are? In Skyrim, shadows were cast with most light sources, but the engine was limited to only 5 sources (or was it 8?) at a time. You'd think developers would improve upon number of light sources possible in Fallout 4 and actually have even more light sources cast shadows, more complex shadows (multi-directional or something like that). Instead, they just cut out sources that allowed shadow casting big-time! I already have More Shadows mod, but its nothing compared to the vast number of light sources there are. Have you noticed that some interiors are actually brighter during the day, even though there aren't any windows??? They improved reflections a BIT, but nowhere near to the same level as ENB's Skyrim reflections, although they were extremely demanding.

I heard commends that lighting was improved, especially since textures can now use specular, normal, glow, and diffuse maps? Parallax would've been very nice, but do those maps make up for the lack of appropriate light sources??? I don't think so! I'd rather have simpler textures and more realistic lighting. ENB and modding are the only hopes in this regard.

The of course Bethesda LOVES to use highly unrealistic low-quality interior fog and overly bright interior lighting and nights. A DirectX 11 game should even be able to handle complex shadows you would get with Pip-Boy's lighting, but in Fallout 4, it doesn't cast any shadows at all. Enabling Pip-Boy shadows produces completely broken shadows...

Here's's IMHO, the best compilation of lighting mod that look best with neutral Base sRGB LUT's mod and the following NMM load order priority (from top to bottom):
- PipBoyShadows - Headlamps Only because, as mentioned earlier, Pip-Boy shadows are completely broken
- More Shadows - select Tweaked option, but do not select Pip-Boy Shadows option for the same reason as stated above

- FogOut - Interiors-Only option for neutral Base sRGB LUT's or normal Interior + Exterior version if you don't use neutral Base sRGB LUT'd mod
OR
- Interiors Enhanced - Darker Ambient Light and Fog (FogOut and Interiors Enhanced are incompatible - don't use both)

- Darker Nights - I think The Darkest option + Vanilla Sky looks the best because you get the darkest environment with enough sky-light to make everything visible
- Darker Nights - FogOut Patch - use only if you went with FogOut mod instead of Interiors Enhanced mod


Does anyone know of any other good lighting tweaks or mods?


Side-Question:
Does anyone know which modding tool can show me the default directories/paths for whichever textures I'd like to edit? For example, I'd like to use Fog texture from Radiant Clouds and Fogs mod, but I do not want to install the actual .ESP and other files from the mod due to complications with other mods. This mod's Fog texture is located in a custom directory, made just for this mod. However, if I were to know the default path/directory to the vanilla fog texture (Data\Textures directory), then I could replace it with the mod's texture, even if I have to rename it to the vanilla texture's file name.

You don't have to be good shot to kill with a Fat Man. biggrin.gif I don't really use guns though, because I do not do enough gun damage to kill anything beyond fodder. With melee, I just hit them once with a sneak attack and they die. With a Fat Man, I just shoot and things die. biggrin.gif

It depends. I can hit them multiple times without Jet, but my problem is that sometimes the random melee hitting will hit the arm with the nuke and that blows him up (and me) up

My character's eyes are way too far apart and I haven't a clue on how to change that using character creator (console command"ShowLooksMenu 14 1"). I think I tried everything, but it won't do the trick!

EDIT: BAH! My mouse wasn't working in character creation menu. I got it to work and got my eyes set! I swear you can sit there for hours and hours and try to get that perfect face and yet there will always be more room for improvement and more trials, etc...
