Survivor's Log - Fallout 4

The Survival update makes a lot of big changes to the game. With requirements to eat, drink and sleep, ammo with weight, and the biggie - only saving when sleeping - and many others, the way you play will obviously need to change!This discussion is about sharing some of our own little tips and tricks for Survival mode - a Survivor's Log, if you will. Post and discuss ideas in the comments and I'll add them to the main post. If we get enough tips I'll start putting them in to categories.Collect…See More

HI ponty,

I am a brand new member but I have visited the site many many times before. I just wanted to let you know that every single time that I had a thought about a build of any kind, you had already created the build and it was in the hall of fame. I just wanted to let you know that you inspire me to be a character builder and to keep it up. You are a genius man.

Hey Ponty, I love your builds and I'm about to try The Arcane Bladesman. I just want say thanks for contributing good luck with the hall of fame.
