Bethesda Softworks posted a new blog entry this past week about Fallout 76 and how the next update will include improvements to the C.A.M.P. system. Those updates will also include improvements to Survival mode and an update for the Scoreboard. You can read more of the details here, which includes an update for the next set of weekly challenges happening through May, but we have the juicer tidbits below.
ADVENTURE MODE C.A.M.P. DAMAGE PROTECTIONS
When we originally launched the Survival Beta with Patch 7.5 last month, we made an Adventure Mode change to prevent you from taking attack damage from players you are not hostile against (a.k.a. “slap” damage). At that time, we had also mentioned that we planned to bring similar damage protections to Adventure Mode players’ C.A.M.P.s in the future. This is a change that will prevent other players’ attacks from dealing damage to objects and structures you’ve built in your C.A.M.P. so long as you (or your Turrets) are not hostile against those players. We’re excited to let you know that we’re currently planning to roll this out with Patch 9 in early May.
“FOUNDATIONAL” C.A.M.P. ADJUSTMENT
With Patch 9, we’re also planning to make it easier to construct your C.A.M.P. by removing the requirement that all of a structure’s foundations must be placed on terrain. Once this is implemented, only the first foundation piece you place will need to be built on terrain, all subsequent foundations you snap to that original piece will then ignore this rule. While this change doesn’t apply to Workshops, it should help you build more freely in your C.A.M.P. and will make it easier to place or re-locate large C.A.M.P. structures.
