    If you mean pre-war Jet I have no answer for that. It seems to be a clear retcon.

    I've found a few. There's actually a park somewhere where there are multiple Yao Guai roaming around.

    They're quite dangerous at higher settings.

    Off topic: Irwin can you please not double post so often? If you want to add something to an already posted message you can just edit said message with an option on the lower right corner of the message.


    I have found literary ZERO Yao Guais. I have even found Glowing Deathclaws but no Yao Guais.

    What exactly is so bad about double posting?

    Uhmmm no it's not.... Dude, you know a forum and a chatroom are not the same thing right? Double posts look bad and bloat the post count on a thread. Specially when the option of editing an existing post is there...

    Farms are fine, its needed as long as its only for display.

    I mean just because we have farms doesn't mean we are going to incorporate a damnable farmville minigame ya know.

    Same with toilets, its a damned graphic, who cares.

    I have ran into way too many. It might be due to Survival mode but I run into their weaker form quite frequently.,

    I don't understand this. :?

    The higher level mole-rats are more or less man-sized. I found a couple of those in Vault 81.

    I have also fought stunted Yao Guais. One of them when I was low level, and it was level 16. Thankfully, backpedaling and hurling mines on the ground works in this game too.

    I mean non-interactable toilets. If I had to have toilets, they wouldn't be drinkable/a legitimate game mechanic.

    Well, Toilets aren't interactable in Fallout 4.

    Yeah, you can't use them I just would like to see some working water/toilets/showers in a town with running water. If not don't include a settlement mechanic that features those things with no improvements as you progress. Mods shouldn't have to fix every stupid thing they throw in the game. If you allow me to build a toilet, allow me to build one that works or looks like it works. It sounds like a nitpick but Bethesda games are lacking such attention to detail. They are so intent on showing 0% progress in the world since the apocalypse. People still drink out of dirty cups, never pick shit up off the floor, shit on broken toilets, shower in dirty tubs (I guess), they just seem to be mindless robots interacting with props.

    I heard some people praise the game because "They remembered that the war happened before halloween" and wondered why other games didn't do anything with that.... to which I ask if they have ever left a pumpkin outside or holiday decorations out for a week.... now take into account a nuclear war happening and a 200 year gap..... the reason Halloween isn't a constant element is because it makes no sense...

    I did like seeing old Halloween decorations in the schools and stuff like that. It is a nice touch but ultimately meaningless.

    I play on easy, and run into whole groups of Yao guai in some spots, 3-4 at the time.

    I have, though not for very long. They seem to only show up for a levels and just disappear. Props for making hem look more like real mutated bears and less like comic monster bears though.

    To be fair, Fallout was never really big on realism. I mean we got pre-war food that's edible, pre-war guns & ammo that still work, clothes that are still intact, machinery & power systems that still work despite not having any human maintenance for hundreds of years, pre-war dynamite that's lasted even in the mojave that is somehow still stable, satellite's still in orbit when most should've crashed to earth by now.. All of this exists when there was a nuclear war and a massive climate change that ensued after it.

    With all that in mind, I'm willing to forgive the presence of a pre-war plastic Halloween pumpkin existing in Fallout. :)

    Drugs spread fast if you have the means to make it spread. But with only one facility producing it (New Reno, the only place with the special ingredient needed for it) and means of transportation that are slow, unsafe and limited in capacity for such long distances (IE brahmins)? Yeah, no.
