Fallout 76 The players have no more room in their stocks, and the game is not yet balanced. Fortunately, Bethesda promises a solution.
Finding and making the best equipment is a major component of Fallout 76 . The world of the game is full of garbage that you can take. You can create everything from weapons and ammunition to the bed where players sleep on their campsite. But every piece of garbage weighs something. Fallout games have traditionally restricted players' stocks by not being able to carry them out if they are too heavy, while at various points on the map they provide storage containers with no capacity limit to accommodate all the surplus. While Fallout 76 meets the limit on how many individual characters can carry before being charged, there is also a limit to how many players can hold in containers, up to 400 pounds of virtual garbage. The players fill up their bags quickly and are empty in their interstices.
In a popular contribution to the Subreddit of the game, a player said that the stash limit ruined the game for them. "I have something of everything and I'm full," they wrote. "This leaves absolutely no room to collect various guns and blunt weapons and armor and armor sets." They said that the limited space does fit into the idea of Fallout 76 as a survival game against the endless loop of collecting, crafting and upgrading, for which MMO-style games play a role
"I should can not exhaust my supply in five hours, "another person replied. "Bethesda should know that they have created a legion of hoards with their past games."
Another player even did a very useful tutorial on how to get the most out of his stash and a hierarchy of items worthy of it are to be arrested. "Ammo is also quite common and can be made specifically for your weapon if you find that sweet favorite weapon," they wrote. "Do not save 800 firearms. Just drop it, it can not be sold. "But even this player said the memory limit should be at least fivefold.
The stingy stash limit surprised the players because Bethesda had initially said none. "Save Away," wrote Senior Vice President Pete Hines in response to someone on Twitter asking about the game's inventory management system. "Know no limits." Since then, Hines has been followed by players to ask if the game's stash limit would be increased. On November 6, just before Fallout 76 received an update of 30 GB. Hines said he had not known before that there would be an expiration limit, but that the team was working to change it. "There are reasons why it is there, and these reasons are important," he wrote without, however, responding to these reasons. ( Kotaku turned to Bethesda to comment, but the company did not respond, and it also did not answer an email or a call from Kotaku since 2013.) Yesterday Bethesda announced that raising the stash limit following the full release of the game on November 14 would indeed be one of the top priorities. "We saw that [Stash size] showed a lot and understood the frustration," wrote a company representative about Reddit. "The size of the stash at 400 can be easier to deal with over time, but we plan to increase it in the future."
It remains to be seen how quickly the respective change of the game will be implemented. Destiny's inventory system had a similar problem when the game first came out in 2014, and it was not until the following April that Bungie finally extended the players. Vaults so they could hoard more of their rare prey. Hopefully Fallout 76 will fix the stock size earlier.
