    I don't think settlement building mechanics work thematically with Fallout tbh.

    Like, Fallout for me is primarily falls in to that genre of Ronin/Western story which is just about a wanderer looking for some vague thing going from town to town and getting involved in their troubles.

    Being Bob the Builder doesn't fit in to that nor does having any kind of intricate home.

    It feels like every single RPG nowadays has to have an open world, a faction choice, settlement building mechanics, intricate crafting, and like a dozen other things which have become industry standard, rather than trying to make the mechanics included fit with the game itself.

    Normalise games having mechanics specific to that game's world and setting, rather than fitting the AAA RPG mold.

    The settlement mechanic doesn't fit because one of the points in the original games and New Vegas is how humanity rebuilds itself after the nuclear bombs through a group effort or several separate large groups. A single dude going around collecting garbage to make tiny settlements goes completely against that.

    Dude, I can help!

    Now you can build wherever. Me personally I can't stand all the filth, in an unnuked city, so I use Scrappable commonwealth and all those trash piles go away bit by bit

    And in case anyone asks why I'm still playing this pile of garbage? Quest mods; quite enjoying Depravity thus far. Still the same asinine lore, but the characters are smarter about it.....except Harley, but I know people like Harley (Lionel Hutz shudder)

    This was probably stated before, but Fallout 4 doesn't fell like "New Vegas" because it doesn't feel like Fallout, period.
