Fallout Accomplished!

At least for tonight.

2:25am

I got all that I wanted to get done done, so I decided to wrap it up for the night. I was well pleased that I didn’t even have a crash while I was playing. That’s a good sign for tomorrow.

So, I think I’m going to take the rest of the evening and mostly just relax. I am going to do a couple little things that I’ve been meaning to get to, but they’re nothing special. Just FO4 mod stuff. Cleaning things up, mainly.

Besides that, I’m just going to chill, drink some Diet Pepsi, and watch some vids until bedtime. Sounds good to me, at least.

Hopefully, I will sleep well tonight, and won’t wake up all tired. That would be nice. I mean, I’ve been sleeping pretty good the past few days, but for two or three days now, I’ve been tired when I wake up. I never did understand how that would work.

Anyways, time for me to wander off. I’ll be back, like usual. I think. Unless I get too caught up in FO4. That’s happened before.

A Day Without Falling, So Far.

It’s true, but that will change.

9:50pm

I haven’t gotten around to it today. I really don’t have a good reason for it. I’ve mostly just been dicking around doing not much of anything, really. But I’m going to change that before long.

So, really, not a whole lot has gone on today. Like I said, I mostly just fucked off. Didn’t do anything too terribly exciting.

I think what’s going to happen next in Fallout 4, is that I am going to, tonight, gather up a couple more magazines. Then, I’m going to, I think, do an actual storyline quest. It’s the one in the Memory Den, and I need to go in there for a couple other things anyways. I actually already did step in there once, and Nick and Irma started their conversation. I don’t think it matters, though. So, I will do that stuff tonight. That will probably take a while. Well, I assume.

Then, tomorrow, I am going to try and spend more time in game than I have the last couple days, and I will be doing some settlement stuff. I think that’s my current plan. Spending the day with settlements. There are more than a couple that I need to go get still.

Now, will I get to all the settlements? Probably not. At least, not tomorrow. I’m going to be doing this well, the way I will probably do it every time. A mix of my own stuff, some Transfer Settlements stuff, and some Sim Settlements stuff. I would like to build up a good collection of settlements in Transfer Settlements, but there’s not a whole lot of rated ones right now. I have a feeling that will change in time, and I will be keeping an eye out for good stuff.

I also plan on exporting my own stuff, just for my own use. I’m no good at designing a settlement. Well, I don’t think so, but then, the only one I’ve really spent a lot of time on is Sanctuary. And I did a bit in Hangman’s Alley, but that’s not very big. Well, it is now. Thanks to a couple mods.

So, I do want to try my hand at building settlements, but I don’t want to have to do them all in the same game? I don’t know that that’s exactly what I want to say, but it’s close.

So, that’s my plan for the next 12-18 hours of game time. We’ll see how that all works out in the end, but this is what I intend to do in-game, at least.

As for the rest of the time? I don’t know. I will probably dink around more. Maybe look for some blueprints. Clean up my modlist. Do some non FO4 stuff. I wouldn’t be surprised. Heh.

I may be back late tonight, or I may not. It depends on how tired I am and whether or not I’m trapped under a cat. We shall see.

I smell interesting things on the horizon.

A New Day Begins.

Or began a few hours ago, at any rate.

3:53pm

So, I ended up just kinda relaxing for a little bit, and then heading to bed about 15 minutes early. I figured what the heck. I know, it doesn’t sound exciting.

Not much has gone on so far today. It’s been rather quiet. And, as per weekend rules, not much going on on the internet, either. At least in the areas that I’m looking.

You know, I’m thinking that maybe now that I have Quake set up, I should spend some time playing that at some point. Start out with the main game or maybe just jump into some new stuff with the Quake Injector.

I’m sure I’ll end up spending a fair bit of time playing Fallout 4 today, but I suppose that could change. I mean, I don’t have much else planned for the day, so that’s probably what I’ll do. Got stuff to do in there, you know.

I can’t imagine that anything really unusual will go on. We shall see, though. I suppose for now, I will wander off. I’ll be back.

Some Falling. Out, Even.

It’s true.

2:39am

I didn’t sleep great last night. I started out okay, but then woke up after a few hours. Then I kept waking up repeatedly. It was not fun.

I didn’t do a whole lot today. Messed around with files, moving stuff out of my downloads. Not too interesting, I suppose, but keeping things in order is probably a good idea.

I also played a bit of Fallout 4 today. Not as much as normal, I suppose, but a good bit, still. I ended up taking out War Of The Commonwealth. The game is much faster and more stable now. That’s too bad, though, I was really enjoying it. Oh well, can’t have them all.

Not much else to report besides that, I don’t think. Hoping I can get my headset before too long. Then…then we’ll see.

I suppose that’s all I have right now. I can’t think of much else. Not sure what I’m going to do with the last hour and fifteen minutes. Probably not much. I’ll probably mostly just kinda hang out for now. Anyways, I’m out.

Another Day Down.

Well, mostly.

2:09am

I spent a good bit of time today playing Fallout 4. I did similar yesterday. At this rate, I’m going to get more playtime in FO4 than I ever did in Fallout: New Vegas, and I played the hell out of that game.

It’s kinda scary, and I still really haven’t made progress. I’ve been collecting magazines mostly. And doing a Minuteman quest here and there. The current Quartermastery quest is in Far Harbor, and I don’t feel like going there right now, so I’m just kinda hanging tight for now, and staying in the Commonwealth.

Speaking of, I found out today that War Of The Commonwealth and the Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch do not get along. Cable says I should take War out, but I haven’t really decided yet at this point. I really like War, and I think that maybe I should try taking the Patch out. I don’t know.

Besides that, there wasn’t much to talk about today. At least, nothing terribly important at this time.

I guess I don’t have a whole lot to say tonight. I doubt tomorrow will be much more exciting. I’m hoping I can solve FO4’s crash problem, and I can get on with gaming without having to reload all the time. That would be nice.

I did get a bunch more magazines, by the way. I’m starting to get a handle on them. I may even get them all before this playthrough is done. I’ve still got a lot of stuff to go and my level keeps going up and up. I need to accomplish more.

I suppose that this is the end, since I have nothing much else to say for tonight. Not sure what I’m going to do with the last hour and a half or so. I may play something, although it probably won’t be FO4. That is, if I play anything at all.

Oh, wait! I forgot! I got Quake set up last night. Yes, Quake 1. With a shiny sourceport called Quakespasm and the Quake Injector. Which, is something that I would love to have a Doom version of. I suppose I could build one myself. Of course, that would mean that I would have to learn to program all over again. I don’t know what’s useful or popular. I know QI was written in Java. That might not be bad. Have to learn it, though.

Okay, I suppose that’s all for now. I’ll be back sometime tomorrow.

So, I Have A Problem.

It’s true, it’s true.

3:00am

I have a problem. With my game, that is. It’s crashing in the city again and I’m not sure why. It’s a bit of a problem. I suppose I will see what I can do to get rid of that, but I’m not sure what it is.

Well, other than that, there’s not much to say right now, I suppose. It’s an hour until bedtime, so I probably won’t be doing too much before then.

I know that’s not too exciting, but I do have something interesting planned.

The Article Article.

I decided to try it.

10:57pm

Okay, so I decided to try and write this silly article article. It probably won’t be as interesting as the mod post, but we’ll see what I can do.

Trying To Make It As A Twitch Streamer Almost Killed Me – Kotaku 2/24/17

I can’t say that this is really a good article to read if you’re a streamer, but it does show a bit of the darker side. I would imagine that health was never a primary concern before that. Kinda like with me. Though I’ve had tests recently that said that things are pretty well hunky dory in my world.

Of course, everyone on Twitch wants to be popular, and yes, there are times an audience will wander away at the commercials, but they’re not necessarily your targets anyways. They’re most likely people that wander from stream to stream in the first place.

So, am I going to stream after reading that? I don’t know. I doubt that I’d be doing it at times that would be really popular, but maybe I’m wrong. I haven’t even decided if I’m going to do that and/or record videos. It was a good time, so maybe I should think about that part a bit.

Anyways, about the article again, it’s kinda a scary thought about what your body does or doesn’t do when it’s sitting in front of a screen all the time. I feel like I should take a lesson from that, but probably won’t.

The Streamer Who’s Nearly Finished Beating All 714 NES Games – Waypoint 2/24/17

This is something else, that’s for sure. I don’t know that I could handle some of those older games. Though, also with some of them, they don’t have a specific ending, they just get harder and harder until they’re impossible.

At any rate, that’s a huge feat. And he did it with actual cartridges and hardware, not an emulator. That’s pretty cool right there.

Not a whole lot to say about that, though I hope someday I can come up with something nifty to get a writeup about.

How two Cities: Skylines modders turned hobbyist work into life-changing careers – PC Gamer 3/3/17

I’ve seen a lot of these type of articles over the years. Modding can be a good way to get into the games industry. It’s always amazing how that can work out. Of course, you’re getting your stuff out there, and being popular means people like it.

A Team Of No Man’s Sky Players Have Spent Months Mapping A Corner Of The Universe – Kotaku 3/9/17

A game that I still haven’t played yet. I was originally going to start it the day it came out, like I did with Fallout 4, but things ended up not working out that way, and it sits on my hard drive, hoping for better days.

I can imagine that there’s a lot out there to explore, way beyond just what you see during regular gameplay. And that these people have started mapping it out is crazy. That’s got to be one hell of a project. That sounds like something that I would enjoy doing.

I’ll have to search for their area once I finally give the game a go. It would be interesting to see.

Well, that’s all the articles that I had saved up. As you can see, I’ve been sitting on them a while. I actually had a couple more that I had thought about posting up, but I ended up closing the tab or going to another link or something, and just kinda forgot about it.

I don’t know how I feel about doing this one. It wasn’t quite as organic as the mod post, but then, I had my initial thoughts about these a little while ago, so I suppose that didn’t help a whole lot.

At any rate, that’s what I have for now. Not sure what I’m going to do next. Maybe Fallout, maybe dinking around with a few more things. We will see. Right now, it’s cig time.
