I began From the Ashes (DLC) yesterday.
The intro was fine and the Locator bit was cool.
Two minutes after being named Bailiff, I head over to add stuff inside a random storage box where I had stashed gear for my future settlers. The new guard grabs me by the neck accusing me of robbing …
One second …
- there are ZERO settlers/citizens : no one owns that random wooden box in a bandit tent ;
- I liberated the place and those are still just old bandit/Cumin tents/boxes ;
- No one owns the random loot in that camp ;
- I am the freaken Bailiff rummaging through random abandoned resources and my loot gained through blood and sweat ! I put stuff in there when the box was marked un-owned (marked Open rather than Robbing)
Anyhow, it was funny out-of-character, but also broke my immersion and made me realize quickly my expectations for this DLC must remain low. Thank heavens I had just made a Save a minute before! (using a mod)
Suggestion : keep those random storage boxes without ownership / free. They are not houses and no one lives there yet. it is random loot from the former bandit/Cumin camp.
nb: My behavior implies that gear and food can be stored or given to settlers, which is probably not really a mechanic in the DLC (I do not know yet). I am aware there are other huge feedback threads about this DLC but I wanted my first impressions and suggestion to be noticeable.
Cheers, loved my core game play-through.
