And it's hardly a city, unless more becomes available later in the game?

I found the Companion Infinite Ammo mode to be very handy:

There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Not that I have seen, but the city is well designed and fits well with the universe.  Also going to the box suite to see the mayor is a nice touch to make the city feel big.

Finally beat the game over the weekend, went with BoS and destroyed the Institution, made sure to put a bullet in Father's head as well, just because I felt like it.  Anyway, now that I am done playing until DLC comes out, here is my collection of Nuka Colas

I didn't have the cojones to do the last part but I did slaughter the Institute so atleast that's something.

I'm now level 64, have played about 100 hours, and am finally at the point where I'm choosing a faction (Railroad). I got so distracted by side quests and I really do find the game so hugely immersive. Though I also took the other factions basically as far as I possibly could and made lots of friends there, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to start killing my friends in the Brotherhood. That's going to suck, but it's kinda cool the way the game makes you choose.

And although I'm now moving the game forward more, I'm still getting sidetracked easily. Just came across the USS Constitution. :lol

Love the ending if you side with the robots. Hilarious.

I just sided with the Railroads as well. Kind of had to roll with the "synths are free" option since Valentine is my favorite companion. And character.

Lastly, I know it isn't, but anyone else think Danse sounds like George Clooney?
Listen! Do you smell something?

That's what I did in the end, it was brilliant! "Success! By my reckoning, in a mere century we will have reached the sea!". :lol

Yep, Nick is awesome, plus SPOILERS Curie is cute as hell once she becomes a synth and you start flirting with her.

So I finished the main story tonight, pretty intense finish - the showdown itself was quicker than I expected (though being at level 66 probably made it easier than it would have been) but some of the aftermath with the Railroad definitely gave me some feels.

Great game.

Sided with the institute then?  I also found the end to be fairly easy and quick (level 53) but also assumed my character was just too powerful to really get challenged.

Oh no I sided with the Railroad, I just meant what happened when I continued my discussions and missions with them after destroying the Institute.

Also, though the game didn't make any kind of deal out of it, I felt pretty bad when I had to take out the Brotherhood, as I'd made friends there. The ones that really got to me were (SPOILERS obviously):
 - Paladin Brandis, who I'd found on the Lost Patrol mission, encouraged to return to the Brotherhood, and then was involved on the attack on the Railroad and so I had to take out.
 - Field Scribe Haylen, who had been really welcoming of me and who I had supported in making sure than Danse didn't get executed, but who I had no choice but to kill when attacking Cambridge Police Station. The worst was logging on to her terminal and reading her last entry where she gushed about how wonderful I was in saving Danse. I felt horrible!

I didn't feel the same sadness when taking out the Institute as I didn't really like anyone there all that much.

I kind of got obsessed with building and went bezerk at the Castle. Here's a few pictures:

Thx!  :) Should say that I used a few console commands and mods. I tried to scavenge as much as possible but got tired of running around all the time so I ended up using some commands to spawn in wood and steel.

I don't use the console except to turn collision off. That way I can build a continuous wall.

Only used it once to fix a bug during a mission that had me stuck

The mod for removing the build cap is essential if you wanna go big and so is the Settlement expansion mod, gives you more assets to build with.

It's a play on Jake Blues from Blues Brothers, I believe.

There are loads of random cultural references like that throughout the game.

This is correct.

Also, this one is my favorite. Where everybody knows your name!

Does anyone know what the Silver Shroud memorabilia or the swan boat pieces are for? I've had those things since like level 10 and never found a use for them.

Dunno about the swan boat but the Silver Shroud is a fun side quest you get in Goodneighbour.

Yup. You'll pick up a radio signal once you get there. Tune in to start the quest.

A quick walkthrough of my settlement because I don't think pictures do it justice. I still need to do some generator management along with some other decorating, but I'm happy with it at the moment.

I just uploaded it so it's potato quality until youtube has the HD option ready. Not sure how long that will take.
Looks like it's good to go.
