Not sure how others feel about this, but I both LOVE and HATE fast travel. I'm far too lazy to spend 30 minutes walking halfway across the map to get back to that one terminal I couldn't hack or lock I couldn't pick before because I was under-leveled...on the other hand, it's FAR too easy to grow dependent on fast-travel, which not only kills immersion, but means you'll be skipping past prime opportunities for exploration and looting! A happy middle-ground is nice, even if all you're doing is making yourself feel slightly more justified in instantly zipping around the wasteland!
Back in my last play-through, I used the mod Immersive Fast Travel to build teleporters at my settlements. I still had to do a bit of jogging to get here and there, but it was slightly more limited and I felt a bit more immersed. This time, I'm considering the mod APC Home on the Move, which could be a fun alternative.
I'm curious what other folks think about Fast Travel, whether they find it impacts their immersion/enjoyment, and what methods they've found that improve the experience for them. Do you use mods to help, and if so which ones? Have you figured out a good system for using Vertibirds for traveling to your destinations? Do you maybe impose certain rules on yourself to limit your use of the feature? Heck, maybe you just skip it entirely and hike everywhere on foot! Share your thoughts, and let's get a discussion going!
