Back on the subject of the Fallout 4 quest types, the current denomination is suboptimal and can induce confusion. This is done within the Fallout Wiki:Fallout 4 quests project. You can find below a comparaison between what we have and what I want us to have.

Current available types

Not faction-dependent Main quest
Reunions
Side quest
Dependency
No example available Miscellaneous quest
Clean the Water Supply
No example available Unmarked quest
Virgil's Cure

Fertilizer Woman
Faction-dependent Faction main quest
Synth Retention
Faction miscellaneous quest
Duty or Dishonor
Faction radiant quest
Ghoul Problem
No example available Faction miscellaneous quest OR Faction radiant quest
Getting Technical
No example available No example available
  • Faction radiant quest is not an explicit term. It does not translate properly to other languages and there are simpler words to convey the same idea.
  • There is 2 available types for a faction-dependent repeatable miscellaneous quest.
  • There is only 1 available type for non-faction-dependent repeatable and non-repeatable unmarked quests.

Suggested types

Main questline Side quest Repeatable side quest Miscellaneous quest Repeatable miscellaneous quest Unmarked quest Repeatable unmarked quest
Not faction-dependent Main quest Side quest No example available Miscellaneous quest No example available Unmarked quest Repeatable unmarked quest
Faction-dependent Faction main quest Faction side quest Faction repeatable side quest No example available Faction repeatable miscellaneous quest No example available No example available

Notable mentions

  • Suspected Synth will still be considered an unmarked quest since there is no mention on its page of the influence of being attached to X or Y faction. Thus I believe the Sole Survivor's faction has no impact on settlers reactions.
  • Blood Bank, Getting Technical and Reactor Coolant (quest) are the only faction-dependant repeatable miscellaneous quests I found. They also happen to be repeatable. They will be considered as faction miscellaneous quests.

Decision

If no objection is encountered in the next day or so I'll apply the new template. The delay may seem short but only 5 people denoted an interest to the project since its start : User:Xernoc, User:Jspoelstra, User:DeJuanNOnley, User:Alfwyn and myself. I am sorry to come back on this subject with another long post, I only want to protect the work we are about to do and ensure we have the community's approval, even if the community does not care too much right now.
