    Hi everyone, long time Skyrim player here. I have played Fallout 3 once, looking to play Fallout 3, NV and 4 on PC. I am looking for a build that is fairly simple to play and can cover a fair bit of game content. I don't mind crafting, love roleplay and would like something I can jump into fairly quickly. I sort of prefer a neutral morality for a first play through, it seems to give a bit of flexibility roleplay-wise. I have FO3 GOTY (and whatever dlc is included), all the NV dlcs and also I think all dlc for FO4, Automatron/Contraptions Workshop/Far Harbor/Nuka-World/Vault-Tec Workshop/Wasteland Workshop.

    Edit: I don't need 1 build to play across all 3 games, I'd love a recommendation for each :)

    Sorry I missed this Anise! There are tons of great builds here that would suit a new playthrough. Here's a link to the Full Archives.

    Here are a few recs:

    FO3: There are only 2 builds for Fallout 3 - read them both here!

    FNV: Play as a real american hero as The Patriot or a hard ass Brotherhood of Steel man.

    FO4: A build that is my personal favorite - sort of a MacGyver style build called the Gearhead, or Maddmannatee's classic ranger build The Vagabond

    Hope that helps!

     

     

    Thanks I'll check them out :)

    Couple places to look through - if you have a specific playstyle in mind - the archives are all tagged accordingly. https://tamrielvault.com/groups/topic/view/group_id/14/topic_id/8310

    For some of our best liked builds, check the Spotlight posts: https://tamrielvault.com/groups/topic/view/group_id/14/topic_id/8896

    Just too hard for me to give you a few with no direction...as you know we all have personal preferences.

    I want a Challenge Build, i.e. a character who'll make me play the game in a totally different and unforsen way.

     

    Like only healing with food or no chems and stempaks. I'm open to any crack pot ideas you have, roleplay tips being greatly appericated. I'm planning on doing this on hard or survival as well.

    First one that came to mind was Noodles Neuromancer (telekinetic sniper), or if I may humbly add, my Doc Fury (roleplay heavy as a Doctor gone bad with mind control and bleed damage)

    Trying to figure out how active the site is still...but while I played a ton of FO4 I never got past the casino area in FO:NV so looking to maybe give it a playthrough.  Open to anything but looking for a fun build to dice up the Vegas desert.

    It has slowed down a bit, but the site is still relevant.  I usually see at least one new interesting build every 2 weeks or so.
