Well I have to tell you I love it and hate it. I have finally had the time between games to go back install Fallout 4 and all the new content to give the New and Improved Survival Mode a go. At the time of writing I have stopped. Currently at level 4 I'm coping a caning in game and the added pressure of having to sleep, eat, drink, cure diseases, not knowing where your enemies are has added a whole new level to this game. Perception counts for nothing now other then lockpicking, as you can no longer detect enemies. As a stealthy build I found this to be a rather bad choice on their behalf as it flew against the survival instinct of most characters. Endurance was another Primary Statistic which took a hit. Initially I thought Endurance would decrease the risk of diseases and give you some abilities to decrease damage. This was not to be. At level 4 I have had 4 diseases and I haven't even left the area in and around Sanctuary. Everything which attacks you can give you a disease of some sort. The constant pressure to try and avoid contact with enemies which seem to fly across the screen and be in your face in a matter of seconds is just crazy. I even hated this in the vanilla version. It's worse in Survival. I think my main problem is I see that a Survivalist needs to have a good grasp of many things. Make own armor, make own weapons, hack, lockpick, settler, medic and damage dealer. An old saying comes to mind "Jack of all trades, master of none". This is very evident in Survival Mode. If you play this type of character it is very very slow going. It's better to ignore some Primary Statistics for others and it would appear damage dealing, fast take downs, is the key to Survival Mode. It's shame as I feel they missed an opportunity here to push the Endurance stats enabling a person to truly survive in an apocalyptic world. Resistances should count for something. At any rate I have set aside my desires to play Survival mode for the mean time. Have started a different character in Very Hard Mode. Funnily enough my lessons learnt in Survival Mode have washed of to a degree and I'm playing a character more designed towards the damage end of the spectrum. What were others feelings towards the new Survival Mode?
