This is a little strategy I ended up discovering while trying to survive in Fallout 76.
Although I’ve been a gamer since age 15 , I’m not really one of those impressive older players.
Most certainly not like this exceptional and excellent role model.
Though I may have always possessed a gold plated heart of intentions.. it sits astride a tin foil hustle.
I’m one of those who are way too slow to save or protect much, let alone a newly acquired workshop.
By the time I stand back up…
(from stooping over to retrieve the toothbrush and typewriter loot I dropped , while desperately fumbling with a rickety shack door..for a “timely” escape)
..a faster and younger (of course) player will have already bounced me back into the oblivion of non-ownership.. and replaying footage of himself dancing a jig over my corpse via a Twitch stream.
This ‘discovery’ was a necessary development..to say the least.
- Build your place. Be sure to select walls that have shutters/windows which will allow you to “reach through” their open spaces.
- Place a crafting table on the inside region of a shuttered wall.
- Then, place a crafting table on the outside region of the wall.
- They should be spaced close enough and adequately enough to allow you to “teleport” yourself to the front of both tables.
Example– I choose cooking set-ups.
I feel they have more flexibility as far as space limitations are concerned.
When I want to “teleport” out of danger from the outside, I click on the “x” crafting button to access the inside cooking station.
Snip. Snap. I’m inside and not so easily humiliated by being such an easy kill.
When I want to exit, from the inside, I click on the “x” crafting button to access the outside cooking station.
Snap. Snip. I’m back outside, relishing the pride of having created my door-less fort.
