I'm not calling this a Fallout 4 fix idea because well, fixing Fallout 4 as it is doesn't seem ambitious enough given the failing of that lazy, intellectually and spiritually bankrupt piece of crap. See I personally liked the head cannon I've build over the quarter century about America and my heroes slowly sticking it back together. I also liked the mods for Fallout 4 WAY better than the the POS base game. So here's what I'm going for: My hero, is Nathan, not Nate, Nathan Tercorien, he's the brother of Elliot, and they were both part of the 108th Regiment (interestingly the 108th Infantry Battalion DOES exist, and it's a New York National Guard, and it's based in Syracuse, NY, and I had the brothers from Rochester, a stones throw away)He's tormented by his brother's disappearance and almost certain death in Alaska and the slim chance he might be alive somewhere. But beyond changing the location of Sanctuary Hills to NOT be bulldozing a National Park Nathan doesn't go himself, in fact in the last moments, he cannot leave everyone and everything he's ever cared for on the surface to die. He's too dutiful and too compassionate to do that. So he gets all the civilians to shield themselves on the side of the hill away from Boston. He's got armor and bunch of anti-rads in his small basement as well as a compliance regulator regulator powered by a microfusion breeder, he's had just in case. What follows is like Frost but very different. There's the Army Remnants, both hoping for evac AND trying to keep order in a an increasingly dystopian Boston. Eventually you're going to have the a showdown between the proto-Enclave lead by the increasingly villainous General Ward from the America Rising mod and the proto Minutemen lead by the now Colonel Tercorien. Along the way you have the increasingly feral proto-ghouls (they go crazy long before the physical symptoms start showing up) raiders, the Cabots subtly using the mysterious serum in the radiation wards to cure the worst of the radiation afflicted (no city under Vegas BS). The real Nick Valentine doing investigations, evacs of the Site Prescott, seeing what the Glowing Sea would looking like even three years loater under real conditions, hell even a better name for the glowing sea. In a case like this, where society refuses to collapse because you have genuine Fallout heroes who refuse to yet it all end and die in the first 5-10 years, what would logically follow, you think? Forget sticking to the lore of Fallout 4 except in broad strokes, what are the opportunities Pre-war Boston has that Hodd Twatard Emil the Incompetent squandered in their epic fail world building? I have a Fallout hero. I have a good setting setting: Fallout 2077-2081 or thereabouts. So any help in getting more ideas of how to flesh out such a story would be most welcome.
