Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop Problems & Update

The Vault-Tec Workshop DLC is getting solid reviews but those playing the new content have run into problems.

While the Vault-Tec Workshop beta wiped out many of the problems plaguing the new DLC, issues slipped through the cracks. 

Some gamers are simply having problems downloading the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC. If you own it and you can't get it to work, close Fallout 4 and re-open it. We also recommend a hard reset of your system. 

We're also hearing about the usual array of texture problems, performance issues, random crashes, and various other bugs impacting the DLC and its features. 

Bethesda's outlined a few solutions for Vault-Tec Workshop problems and the company's rolled out a brand new Vault-Tec Workshop update to address lingering bugs.

The update is now available for Xbox One, PC and the PlayStation 4. It's 400MB+ in size and it brings several key fixes to the table. 

The update keeps the game at its current version. Here is the full list of fixes available for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4:

- 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

If you are using an Xbox One or PC, the update will install automatically when you log online. If you're using Vault-Tec on a PS4, here's how to get the update.

This update wipes out many Vault-Tec Workshop issues but it doesn't tackle them all. While we wait for the next major Fallout 4 bug fix update for PS4, Xbox One and PC, please take a look at our list of fixes for common Fallout 4 problems and Bethesda's support forums for assistance.

You'll also want to report any bugs you see as you play the DLC. To do that, head here to submit a Vault-Tec Workshop bug via Bethesda's website.
