comment How long do sleeping bonuses last?
Are you sure you're losing it due to Fast Travel, or are you just losing it because of the time that passes during Fast Travel to certain locations? Remember, Fast Travel is not actually instantaneous.

After you were done, did you hug the "gentle" Deathclaw and kiss its boo-boo all better?

comment Are Charisma Check chances in Fallout 4 improved by having Charisma greater than 10?
@VanBuzzKill It's very possible that the benefit to Charisma checks caps at 10. For most (if not all) SPECIAL skills, the things they affect get tweaked by (Multiplier)*(Stat). So, thinks like Carry Weight will obviously keep going up as the stat increases, no matter how high it goes. But stuff that's chance-based, like Charisma checks, could be working off a percentage system. And once you've hit 100% success chance, there's really no further you can go. (e.g.: If each point in Charisma is worth 10% chance of success.) But nobody here's confirmed how that works yet - just a guess.

Oh, I totally forgot about bartering prices! Definitely right on that one. I do still notice a difference when I swap in my Charisma gear (total +5 Charisma, I think, without adding in the occasional drug use) before I head off to the market.

comment How does Charisma affect your negotiation skills?
@DCShannon It's been so long, I'm beginning to wonder if I can even manage playing an FPS or flight sim with keyboard/mouse anymore. Might have to just hook up one of the Xbox controllers.

comment How does Charisma affect your negotiation skills?
@DCShannon Sometimes yes. A lot of times no. Really starting to think I should pick up the PC version so it's easier to mod & playtest this stuff.

comment Fallout 4 Boston airport settlement
Nukapedia seems very unclear on the trigger. Claims it can be done before BoS shows up, or as part of a few different quests. The wiki on Fextralife concurs with one of those quests.

comment Fallout 4 Boston airport settlement
Nope. I'm past both of the points you've mentioned, but I didn't use the one faction in the first quest and I had the settlement unlocked (and cleared for scrap) well before the second. I'm pretty sure I recall having had it unlocked even before the first, but I don't remember the trigger. Maybe the warehouse investigation?

@DCShannon Are you sure about failing Charisma checks with 10? My current playthrough started with max Charisma, and I've yet to fail a single check. Currently at the part just before Bunker Hill, with pretty much every sidequest I've found completed (except one or two that are bugged).

comment Are Charisma Check chances in Fallout 4 improved by having Charisma greater than 10?
I started off with Charisma 10, and generally try to wear Charisma-focused gear when I know I'll be getting into an important dialogue. (Though I do often forget.) I've yet to fail any Charisma checks, so I really don't know if having Charisma >10 helps or not.

I didn't do either of the things you suggest for unlocking this area, and still got access to it. Don't remember what the trigger was though.

comment How can I delete a saved game?
@MadMrCrazy If you start a new game without deleting the old, you are forced to choose a different username. This is what I want to avoid.
