Since A Colossal Problem has been activated for the PC, the probability of my CAMP being within a nuke zone has risen substantially from about ~0% to something like ~20%. My camp is far enough away that someone centering a nuke on the mine itself won't nuke the camp. That said, it is not difficult to nuke both the mine and my camp. I suspect people like to cover some of the fast travel points to the NE of the mine for farming purposes. Doing so is fine, 100% fair, and I don't have a problem with it. I definitely don't have a problem with someone nuking my camp if I am on the server already. It makes me say 'dude, really?' but having a few minutes to log out or change servers makes it 100% fair.
What I DO have a problem with is my camp being totally destroyed immediately upon loading into an adventure server.
If you get unlucky and load into a server where your camp is within a nuke zone, when all of the assets that represent the camp are loaded into your client they are immediately destroyed. What makes it even more frustrating is that the game acknowledges that your character loaded into a nuke zone, and even offers a chance to leave it for another server.
I'll note that this is NOT a case of shitty timing (i.e. I connect to the server, a nuke lands right while I am loading, and then when I finish loading everything is destroyed). I have concluded this 5 out of the 5 times this happened because 1) the Colossal Problem event is not available to be fast traveled to and 2) zero players were at the Monongah mine. Next time it happens, I will check my Missile Silo Holotape to confirm that nothing was just launched and would read 3:00h until ready.
Summary: Having your camp destroyed on loading sucks, and isn't fun.
My question to the community: is anyone else having this problem? I could use some commiseration from my neighbors in the north savage divide.
My question to the FO76 community manager or development team: is this intended behavior? If so, the decision is a dogshit one. Please change it.
P.S.: To anyone whose first suggestion would simply be 'just move', let me be the first to admit that I am a stubborn individual. I got my CAMP situated and built in a place I love. It's to the SE of the Sunnytop Ski Lanes. It overlooks a fantastic cliff and view of the valley below, has close access to the Sunnytop Railroad, has close access to the Motherload fast travel network, and is a reasonable cost fast travel to both Crater and Vault 79. All of that is to say, I really, really don't want to fucking move.
- Here is a list of small quality of life improvements that I believe can make this game a lot better. (And some CAMP bending stuff at the end)
- A suggestion to benefit camp enthusiasts!
