Sometimes there are bigger issues than the impending nuclear Armageddon.

8. Fix Object Placement

“99 bottles of beer—err. On the wall? Off it?”

During settlement building, you might fancy personalizing the place with food items or decorations you’ve picked up on the road. So you’ve built yourself a table, some chairs, maybe a patio on the second story balcony. You spend a good half hour painstakingly setting up dinner or some beer and sugar bombs for your hardworking character to enjoy. The next time you return to your settlement, you find your decorations thrown about, your mugs phased through the table, your beer bottles sunk halfway through the floor. It’s like a rabid molerat went berserk and ransacked the place.

Or it’s just ragdoll physics at work again. A problem Bethesda games are notorious for.

Solution: There are two options here. Either tone down the physics or make items placed by the player fixed to that location, only moveable in build mode. What good is having super cool clutter physics when all it does is make your living room look like Kansas during a windstorm?
