Looking to customize a settlement with meat bags and cages? Patch 1.4 for Fallout 4 is live now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, letting players live a raider or super mutant lifestyle more authentically with new settlement options. The latest update adds several new Workshop options like those alongside more wooden and metal door options, new signs, and new paintings.
Players can now set up their settlements to strike fear in anyone who dare attack it. Meat bags, meat carts, and totems give an area a distinct super mutant vibe while several new metal poles, cages, and shanty tents set up a settlement fit for a wasteland raider. These new objects are available now with patch 1.4 according to the Bethesda website. Players that want a less scary look can benefit from several more door options, new signs, and other new wall coverings. The update is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with the download at around 2.2 to 2.3 gigs as confirmed by players on the Fallout 4 subreddit on Reddit.
A number of fixes are also part of the 1.4 patch. Fallout 4 players will find overall stability and performance improved, but specific issues were also addressed. A handful of quests were addressed including “Getting a Clue,” “Rocket’s Red Glare,” and “Kremvh’s Tooth.” General issues like third person perspective breaking after exiting a Workshop should now be resolved. The Pip-Boy should no longer become stuck for players wearing power armor and attempting to switch weapons.
The Fallout 4 patch also rectified a power duping method that let players copy shipments of supplies from vendors. Additionally, the bug that occurred with vendors and their cap exchange with players trading with them quickly is also fixed. Today’s patch also paves the way for upcoming DLC with a new Add-On section on the title screen. The first of which is expected later this month.
Mods on consoles will also be a little easier to install than non-Steam Workshop mods on PC. Console players are expected to be able start Fallout 4 on their system with mods being right there available for download. Choosing to download a mod on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is supposed to be a fairly easy and streamlined system, but mod support is not available yet. The Creation Kit, which players use to produce mods, is currently being tested.
