Fallout 4 Update 1.7 Previewed, Vault-Tec Workshop Update in Testing With Sony

In testing with Sony for PlayStation 4, and now available for Xbox One and PC, an update for Fallout 4’s Vault-Tec Workshop is designed to fix several issues with the latest piece of DLC.

Here’s the list of fixes included with the Vault-Tec Workshop update:

  • Vault Exterior Door no longer has a missing texture if Wasteland Workshop is not installed
  • NPCs will no longer incorrectly sit at the Vault Security Desk
  • Vault-Tec Water Pump and starting generator now auto repair when entering workshop mode
  • Player can no longer assign companions or Overseer Barstow using the population management system to prevent this from breaking them
  • Vault-Tec population management system will no longer say jobs are available when is no one valid for job assignment available
  • Vault Experiments can be scrapped in workshop mode
  • Fixed issue with Overseer Barstow’s audio cutting out after Clem’s interview
  • Interviewing the second settler candidate will not reset after the dialogue option take a break

Provided Sony doesn’t find any issues with it, the Vault-Tec Workshop update should be available soon on PS4.
