Now that most of the planned quests are done – with 3 notable exceptions – I’m going to start adding a few more random NPC encounters to the Commonwealth. Here’s a crew that’s a callback to the Fallout 3 follower Mortar, complete with Army cadences as they patrol the Wasteland.
The scenes are thankfully a lot more robust in Fallout 4, and the engine is fast enough to where all the voices fire at the same time. With Skyrim, you’d have to tweak the timing to account for lag, and even then you were never sure if it varied from machine to machine. It seems like with Fallout 4 everything fires at the same time.
Those who are interested will be able to test this mini-quest and encounter in a few days, just be sure to check the appropriate thread.
