Permissions and credits
You start strong, as is right for a war hero. With your pre-war basement standing and fully stocked in preparation for the worst. But your eventual promised vanilla godhood has been stripped away, and what progress you do make in strength and security is meager compared to before.

The gameplay is faster, more punishing, less predictable and most important... More immersive.

Darkdally summed the mod well, however it is important to note I updated some things since this review was released: Perks now have the same number of perks they did in vanilla in order to increase compatibility, bugs are easier to kill and there are more ways to counter them. 

The mod has seen hundreds of updates since I published it in June 2016, each after further refining it to deliver the fps and RP experience from your Fallout 4.  It is often said that Immersive Gameplay is harder than vanilla, that is true, but it is also fairer than vanilla and that part is extremely important.

There are no artificial difficulties in Immersive gameplay, there is no illogical and secret empowerment to your enemies, the world is consistent, the world makes sense. And by making the world fair, consistent the gameplay has improved. Your motives and actions as a player improved. You think more, you have to or you would die. It pushes you to get closer to your character true nature, it makes the hero role less obvious. 

There will be moments where you will feel powerful, almost unstoppable. And you could feel that way right off the bat, you could go wherever you wished to go. Those moments will be the most dangerous because in the apocalyptic world danger is everywhere. You have to bring your top game to every encounter, you cannot underestimate your enemies, or you will be caught unaware and perish.

Immersive Gameplay will be the closest you will ever feel like playing a true Bethesda multiplayer game. Being a Planetside 2 player myself, I borrowed on that knowledge along with my real-world knowledge to improve the gameplay experience in any way I could. 

In Immersive gameplay, you can go wherever you wish to go right from the start.  Specialize what you want right from the start, it is ideal for returning players, and suitable for first timers as well. And it will remain  challenging throughout your entire playthrough

I greatly thank Alisar for her immense help with the season patch, for making the installer all on her own, for adding her own version of scrap everything with no frame drop, for adding the workshop toolbox to the basement, for adding nifs to new items in the workshop, and for patches to mods. And to Jedstar2000 for his help with the merge patches, the contribution of more hardcore patches and injecting new things into the main file. And of course to Minami for the reddit page, the mod's previous home for consoles and PC. And thanks to all the people who stuck around and supported the mod with feedback and positivity.
Thank you all.

Other Modders: Thanks to Chucksteel for his No Health and Crippled Pop-Ups . And Valdacil for his tags.
