Today's Fallout 76 patch better do a lot because it's nearly 50GB

What a waste(land)

A contentious and almost-universally hated constraint in Fallout 76 is the stash limit. This game that incentivizes grabbing anything that isn't bolted down will only allow you to keep a collection of items that total 400 weight. It's a silly restriction that Bethesda plans to change in the near future.

However, a more realistic restriction that Bethesda is ignoring entirely is how many people's internet service providers have imposed data caps. Fallout 76's first major patch deployed this morning, and it's hefty hefty hefty. It weighs in at 48.39GB on Xbox One (Version 1.0.1.8). It's 47.26GB on PS4 (Version 1.0.1.9). The update seemingly replaces the old game file entirely. PC players get off easier at 15GB (Version 1.0.1.14).

This patch doesn't necessarily have an obvious point of emphasis that everyone will be happy to see changed. It's unfortunately not the update where the stash limit is increased. Rather, this focuses more on bug fixes and stability improvements. The latter is entirely welcomed with open arms. However, this patch does solve the issue where almost nobody could finish the Bureau of Tourism quest. Now, Prickett's Fort Token Dispenser can be repaired, meaning you can knock that annoying last objective off of your quest log for good.

Here's the entirety of the patch notes for today's Fallout 76 update:

General:

  • Performance: Several issues have been addressed to resolve hitches during gameplay and other performance issues.
  • Stability: The Fallout 76 game client and servers have received additional stability improvements.
  • Xbox: Fixed an issue that could lead to instability on certain menus.

Bug Fixes:

Art and Graphics:

  • Ambient Occlusion: Placed items no longer leave behind shadow outlines after being picked up.
  • Camera: The game camera now pans more smoothly when the player enters furniture.
  • Graphics: The cover of Tesla Science magazine Issue 9 no longer appears solid red on pickup, or when inspected.

Enemies:

  • Loot: Ghoul and Scorched Officers now correctly drop nuke code pieces upon being killed by a player.

C.A.M.P., Workshops, and Crafting:

  • Blueprints: Fixed an issue that could cause Blueprints to break into smaller parts after logging out and back in to Fallout 76.
  • Plans: Paints applied to Power Armor during the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. will now appear correctly on the items that were painted, and those paints can now correctly be applied to additional sets of Power Armor.
  • Repair: Fixed an issue that could cause an item to return to a broken state after being repaired.

Quests:

  • Bureau of Tourism: The Prickett's Fort Token Dispenser can now be repaired, and players can no longer walk through it.

PVP:

  • Pacifist Mode: Players with Pacifist Mode enabled who engage in PVP by contesting a Workshop owned by another player will now correctly deal full damage to that player as long as they remain hostile.
  • Respawn: Choosing the "Respawn" option after dying during PVP combat will now correctly clear any active hostile status toward other players.

User Interface:

  • Languages: Korean fonts will now be displayed correctly in game menus.
  • Hotkeys: The "Take Photo" hotkey can no longer be rebound and is now tied to the space bar on PC and the A button on controllers.
  • Hotkeys: Fixed an issue that could cause the "Take Snapshot" button in Photomode to display an incorrect hotkey.
  • Social: Fixed an issue that could cause players to disappear from each other's social menus if two players each sent a friend invite to one another.
  • Social: Fixed an issue that prevented newly equipped Player Icons from displaying to other players in the Social Menu.
