So logged a ticket with Bethesda...

Hello

After completing FarHarbor and working around its numerous bugs, I found that any and all settlers would no longer go to assigned jobs.

1. I removed the FarHarbor DLC and no joy
2. I then went back to the last save before going to FarHarbor and now the settlers are back to normal.

Its bad enough the some of the quests in FarHarbor and Automaton are broken, but for a DLC to corrupt a save-game that then effects the rest of the game is just not on.

I am now in a position of either waiting for Bethesda to fix this showstopping bug or play the rest of the game without having played FarHarbor and loose all the Xp and caps I gained.

Not cool guys

Bethesda games are buggier than most beehives.

This doesn't really surprise me, though you do have my sympathies.

I like to record difficult stealth games, and right now you wonderful people are the only ones delivering on that front.
Click here for the crappy channel where that happens.

If you think about it, that's no wonder. A gigantic game world, with loads of NPC's, which interact with each other in ways which can literally break a gazillion of things. IMO, you gotta take Bethesda's games for what they are. I don't know many other games which have such a level of complexity, and still work without gamebreaking issues. OK, so Bikerdude had a potentially gamebreaking issue here, but, considering Far Harbour is a popular DLC for a very popular game, i figure that he ran into an issue not everyone has with Far Harbour really. At least i can't recall anyone i know reporting a similar issue, and i know some people playing Fallout 4 with Far Harbour.

 

Anyway, i hope you can fix it. Just wanted to point out that there is a price to pay for such a complexity, and that at least i am not surprised that there are issues. I always experienced issues in any of the Bethesda games, but, fortunately, nothing game breaking so far. I'm in the process of finishing Fallout 4 ATM, without DLC's, but, i'm planning to get those as well at some point, so, hoping they can nail out the one or the other bug too. Not sure if they will though.

this is a known bug it was mentioned in the steam forums, the only reason to really go to far harbour is for the marine armour.

The polymer armor fully upgraded is better than the marine armor.

Doesn't Far Harbour bring new quests also? Why miss those?

Fallout 4 really better than Fallout 3? Fallout 3 had decent DLC content if memory serves right. Alien Mothership, harbor in a swamp, Pittsburg factories, Alaska WW3 scenario with China.

IMO it isn't. It's just a coat of paint over a very old engine, with even more simplified systems and choices. If you thought the story in F3 was mediocre, F4 is the new low. For me, the last really fun and creative Fallout was New Vegas + DLCs.

Ah yeah, they say New Vegas is supposed to bring what was lost with Fallout 1. One thing I won't deny is the good music choice for every Fallout game!

Regarding the game world, FO 4 clearly beats both predecessors, don't think there's 2 opinions on that (and if there are, i really question the nay-sayers judgement...). Gameplay wise, i guess it's a matter of taste, they left some stuff out, while adding a lot of other stuff, which is of course in the eye of the beholder, whether you'd call the different things an improvement or not (IMO, it mostly is). BUT, the characters in FO 4 are also a clear improvement, compared to part 3. I liked New Vegas much too though. Dunno. Guess you'd have to test it, i'm sure it won't be long until you can get it for cheap anyway. :) What i'd criticize about part 4 are the very generic faction quests. Really, that's something that doesn't have to be. After the 3rd exactly same mission, you'll be bored, the latest. Also, some of the crafting stuff is pretty pointless, and also too bloated, for example, the cooking. You'll find better items and drugs in terms of effects anyway, than any of the stuff you cook will give you. Also, i'm not sure if building in some "build and conquer" style strategy stuff like the settlements is a good idea. Frankly, i was quite annoyed by it in the beginning, but, got used to it later in the game. Still not sure i like it though. But, if you don't join the Minutemen, i guess you'll hardly care less anyway. ;)

 

So, tl;dr, Fallout 4 is a clear improvement of part 3 for me, in most regards. Although part 3 is still a good game in its own rights. I prefer the story in part 3, but i definitely enjoyed the game world in part 4 more, and also most of the gameplay. New Vegas is pretty awesome too, but, i think i'd still prefer part 4, simply because it was such a fun for me to explore the game world of part 4.

Oh, yeah, totally forgot that the soundtrack is pretty much the best out of all Fallout games too. :)
