When I was setting up my character for Fallout 76 I could hear a guy talking to a girl discussing setting up his character. I could hear the girl he was talking to talking back to him, I could even hear his fingers tapping on a keyboard, I could hear the theme music playing from his computer. I turned the music off on my computer. Until I sent my character out of the vault I could hear the two of them talking.
When I was passing someone with the speaker Icon over their name I could hear them talking back and forth with their friends. One person was listening to offline music. Another person was talking to them self as in the Role Playing kindred spirit.
I decided to record a video segment to find out if I would hear them talking during the movie clip playback. About twenty seconds. It was then I realized the other players only had to be within sight of my character for me to hear them speaking clearly.
I heard their garbled conversation like I was tuning into a radio station before I saw their character. I hear them and can walk toward them; getting a clearer signal before I see them, before they can see me?
Ooo! Ideas are popping into my head. Ooo!
Should I post the information at Bethesda community forum?
