Fallout 76 announcement? (Bethesda Live Stream)

I'm actually enjoying it so far, and the only gripe I have about it yet is the abysmal texture optimization. High quality textures uses over 4 GB of VRAM, and since my card only has 4 GB the game turns into a slideshow unless I use medium quality textures. Unfortunately, medium quality textures look like complete ass; everything looks blurry and shiny like it all has a coating of vaseline on it. The difference in quality between medium and high textures is just massive.

 

I could play FO4 with high quality textures with many high-res retexture mods and didn't use up all of my VRAM.

 

I hope the textures get optimized by either an official patch or by a mod so I can use high quality. Using medium quality, and looking at the garbage textures on my pip boy every time I bring my wrist to my face is honestly killing my desire to play.

Bugthesda caters to console players, whose systems cannot handle textures higher than 2k resolution. Not even so-called "4k systems" like the XBOX One X. So them improving the textures is not going to happen. As for mods that do such? We don't even know if they'll follow through on their promise of allowing mods.

I will honestly be a bit surprised if they do end up allowing mods and private servers, I think they were just throwing out what people wanted to hear.

 

Regarding texture optimization, the game ran just fine for me on PC but all my friends playing the beta on consoles complained about lots of frame rate issues, so if anything small optimizations might do more to help console players than PC players.

That's exactly what I think. It would be seen as the greatest betrayal by a lot of fans and likely be commercial suicide for FO76, but they don't seem to care anymore.

I don't think they're going to come out and say it isn't happening, I just think it will be perpetually "next year".

Of course they wouldn't. Their job is to lie. Especially Pete Hines since his job is PR marketing. His job is to convince and even up to lie to sell their product. His job is to entrap, entice, engage. They've managed to continue to convince a lot of fans that their games are 'gud' thus far, so I'm not surprised if I see a thousand videos on people's deception when they realize it's not happening.

What? I just complained that the textures are so unoptimized my video card with 4 GB VRAM (which is more than consoles have available) can't handle it. How is that catering to console players???

Because they don't give a flying fuck about issues that PC gamers have. If it doesn't affect console gamers, they'll never bother fixing it. Sometimes if it does affect console gamers they won't bother fixing it. Look at Skyrim Switch!

 

I don't know if their lousy textures are hurting console players or not. But I'd bet dollars to donuts they can't tell or don't care.

Isn't their texture system too archaic to handle it anyways?

 

FO4 textures were pretty poorly optimized when it came out and a few different people published mods to correct it and reduce VRAM usage so I'm pretty much 100% sure 76 is the same way.

The first patch they have will reset the INI files from my understanding. They arent going to allow any modding of the public servers. Modding private servers will be sometime next year, though I can agree, CBBE is needed badly in 76. 

keep dreaming, on public servers becomes Modding approved, but only house-own Mods (CC Beth).
see TESO, mods are allowed, of my knowledge, only graphical improvements, certainly no mods, the to influence that game, advantages for players.
and whole sure, no mods the nudity included. 
who tries in an online game to integrate naked bodies, gets blocked faster than he would like! :classic_wink:

Maybe you should read the thread you linked to. There wasn't any mods involved since Arche Age apparently had nude models in the game files and a glitch caused by repeatedly un- and re-equipping your armor displayed said nude model instead of the one with undergarments. As far as WoW goes, patch 7.3 broke nude mods because they made some changes to the game's executable file which was intended to combat botters but also prevented modifying the game's files. I never heard of someone getting banned for using nude mods. I used all sorts of stuff that was against the ToS of multiple online only games and never had any problems. Most of the time it's simple fearmongering and general stupidity spread by redditards and people gobble it up without any kind of proof whatsoever.

in the ArcheAge I was only warned, I have removed my nude mod.
in WoW I was banished on life time!

 

Here I will not try it. :classic_smile:

Yeah I don't believe you on that since all you do is post links to random things that have absolutely nothing to do with what you're saying. From the very thread you linked to:

You will not get banned for using this mod, AS LONG AS YOU KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.
Posting nude mod pics in the beauty album can most likely result in a permanent ban

So there you have it, using nude mods on BDO won't get a ban. Showcasing it on the other hand won't go well. Stop spreading misinformation, please.

Yeah like they are going to bother banning customers who aren't griefing others when they will be struggling for players when the release hype wears off...

this is what the modder wrote and there is no confirmation whether his words of truth correspond to!
only that much, I know through my own experience, that nudity is not allowed in MMORPGs under 18!
WoW = 12 years Age release
ArcheAge = 12 years Age release
Black Desert = 16 years Age release

 

in Fallout 76 it COULD be different, because the Age release is 18.
but Beth is in the criticism, many complain about pornographic material, like rape, torture, etc, in a conventional game!
the we people to owe, the picture and video material put in the internet! :classic_wink:

 

edit: if you know everything so well, then give me a proof, that it is allowed in a non-adult game (MMORPGs) to use naked bodys! :classic_laugh:

 

the German Youth Protection Act forbids nudity in a conventional game under 16! :classic_smile:

Found this on an FB page.

I´m no defender for bethesda at all, and I never will be...

But for fucks sake, they were just right there...

Some people WILL ALWAYS complain, whilst other people WILL ALWAYS buy...

sometimes, some people, even do both.

Mods aren't the base game. Games are rated according to the content they have in them, not for any additional content a random fuckwit decides to add to the game via mods. Modifying the game files is a break of the ToS and that's all. And nobody gives a shit unless you're stupid enough to announce that you're breaking the ToS, which in turn forces the hand of the people that own the IP. Breaking the ToS is only relevant if it includes copyright infringement, bots or cheats. Then they'll come after you.

 

It's cute that you ask for proof because so far you've delivered none. You just say that you know and then post random links that have nothing to do with what you're claiming, probably because your grasp on the english language is pretty poor. You're the one that's made a claim, so the burden of proof is on you. Any sort of youth protection or age restriction only applies to the base product, not to mods. Since nude mods in online games are entirely client side, it doesn't affect any other player except you.
