WHAT IS RADIOACTIVE STORIES?

  • A series of lore focused quests bringing the player in a full immersion by following clues, hints, breadcrumbs, etc. in order to reveal the actual stories. 
  • 4 Stories; 9 quests; 5 new interior locations; custom weapons, gear, special items and pure entertainment as rewards!
  • If you really like the smaller lore elements in Fallout 4, then you may like Radioactive Stories as it tries to tie-in some of the Vanilla lore stories to its own stories. (Example: Jake Whitfield is the (non-canon) son of Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield (both canon) from the Pre-War Sanctuary.)

IMPORTANT STUFF, MUST READ:

  • This mod is in constant development. A lot more quests will be added in the future.
  • Quests rarely have markers, making reading the notes, holotapes, terminals, quest logs, objectives, etc. extremely important. Only time you would get a marker is when I want you to follow a specific path. But overall, this mod will not grab your hand and show you every time where to go, what to loot, etc.. Your brain may need to be used at times;
  • When I want you to follow a specific path, if a marker brings you in the middle of nowhere, that means you need to find something specific in the area in order to progress (extra hint: don’t go forward or backward of the marker);
  • Also, in this type of quest, there a big possibility you would find some extra lore, hints, items between two markers. But if missed, those should not stop you from progressing. So if you are a lore-monger, try to avoid fast travels, you never know. A Survival playthrough would increase your immersion in the mod for sure.
  • Afraid you may get stuck somewhere because there is no marker? Or maybe you just want the goods? No problem, there is a Walkthrough holotape craftable at your local chemistry lab!
  • Once the quest "School's Out Forever" has started, DO NOT complete the vanilla quest Nuclear Option while School's Out is still running, this will break the mod's quest line. Although, Nuclear Option can be completed before starting "School's Out". In Please ask me questions if in doubt.
  • No DLC required (for now)
  • There are non-voiced NPCs, make sure to enable subtitles. But I made it possible for you to skip dialogue and avoid waiting :)
  • Please, no spoilers here (or hide them if it's possible), use the specific Discussion thread on the Nexus (see link below)


COMPATIBILITY PATCH:

  • AWKCR addon. Adds a few Keywords on my armors. Also added keywords to make it compatible with UCO (with no depencies to it). For UCO, just make sure the addon is above UCO in the Load order. I think I've added all I needed to, but if anyone has input or specific keywords from AWKCR, let me know. Requires AWKCR v3.2


KNOWN COMPATIBILITY ISSUES:

  • Sparky's Quantum Adventure: Game Breaker: YES - This mod stops my mod to spawn crucial elements in the Sanctuary basement in my very 1st quest. You CAN NOT  do "The Fate of Jake Whitfield" with Sparky's enable. I will recommend to disable Sparky's, complete the part where you need to go in the Sanctuary Basement in my mod and once you are done there, you can re-enable/install Sparky's.
  • Zombie Walkers : Game Breaker: NO - This amazing mod renames some of my hostile NPCs, although not a game breaker.  Also, make sure you have Looting Enabled (Zombie Walkers settings) while playing my mod, my testing didn't encountered issues, but just to be on the safe side.
