Settlements are a completely new feature to the Fallout series. With it, you can build new settlements, towns and cities where you can send companions and other wasteland inhabitants to live. I love it personally, and spend most of my time building up settlements. Bethesda also expanded on the system a little in Fallout 76, with players using the C. The list below is in no particular order, whilst all of the buttons link back to Bethesda. Check our dedicated area here!
In my opinion, Place Anywhere is a must have mod on Xbox One if you enjoy settlement building in Fallout 4. Originally a PC mod, it has now made its way to console. What it allows you to do is place items down in the red zone, meaning you can place anything anywhere. You can clip items into each-other, place items through walls and stack items on top of each-other.
Visit Place Anywhere. Instead of you having to build up Settlements yourself, you can make settlers do it themselves. By placing markers, Settlers will build appropriate buildings over time.
There are a lot of different styles of buildings such as farms, stores and houses. Visit Sim Settlements. Now you can make your settlements as big as you want with an unlimited amount of items. When you build up your settlements, the size bar will fill up pretty fast.
Visit No Build Limit. The beauty of it is that all of the structural pieces snap together seamlessly, allowing you to make some great looking buildings. I use this mod on my own play-through wherever I can.
There are different themes to buildings, including real estate, green houses, factories, barns and more. Our next Settlement mod if Do it Yourshelf. This mod helps you fill up empty book shelves and provide some more realism to settlements. After installing this mod, you will find premade clutter items in the building menu, which will simply snap into the shelf spaces. This is by far the easiest way to create clutter and actually make parts of your settlements look unique and lived in without doing much work.
Visit Do It Yourshelf. This mod adds a bit of cheating when it comes to Settlement Building in Fallout 4. Under the miscellaneous section of the crafting menu, you will find a shipment which can be placed down and then picked up or stored in the workshop.Main quests, side quests, and all the random skirmishes you get into along the way. The Missions Committee mod for Fallout 4 is perfect in that respect. It allows you to volunteer for challenging combat missions of several different varieties, which can take place nearly anywhere in the Commonwealth.
Think of the Missions Committee like a group of shadowy overlords sitting in a conference room with their fingers on the Bat Signal. Via a holotape you pop into your Pip-Boy, you can register as sort of a hero on duty.
You never know when you may be called into action—though you can fiddle with the options to make missions more or less frequent depending on your tastes. The mod can assign you several different types of missions, though they are all centred around combat as opposed to story-based quests.
Following the marker on the radar, I quickly discover the problem: a bunch of fedora-wearing gangsters are clustered around the edge of a lake, up to no good. This is an area capture mission, not unlike a control point mode in a multiplayer game.
You have to wipe out the baddies and then get close to a flag until the area has been fully conquered, at which point the mission ends. Case in point, a little while later I get another notification for an area control mission. This time the bad guys are heavily armed and armoured Gunners, and there are scores of them. On the Missions Committee holotape, you can choose to align with a faction or you can remain solo as a freelancer.
Over a dozen Minutemen swarm on my location, and the landscape erupts into a massive firefight as my allies and I clash with the Gunners. It makes for a pretty intense fight. When you and your allies have cleared out a location and taken a flag, it will remain under your control and your allied faction will continue to spawn there. In addition to these control point style missions, you can also opt in for rescue missions.
They are, in fact, beating the hell out of that prisoner, which gives me a little extra motivation to kill them quickly and free the captive. Then there are artillery destruction missions. Blowing up the giant cannon is satisfying, too, especially after a long and brutal fight with its operators. There are also defence missions, in which the Committee basically needs to use you as bait for some of their enemies.
Best of all, there are assassination missions. Not that I mind! Missions from the Committee can take place just about anywhere you happen to be wandering in Fallout 4.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Store Page.

Custom quests bring huge battles to Fallout 4
If I add several settlements through mods, is there a way to get settlers to go to said settlements? Showing 1 - 2 of 2 comments.
Console commands can't help in this situation in any way, because even if you spawn a "settler", they don'rt come with the setller associated scripts already attached to them, so they are useless in the workshop. Thank you.
The settler beacon should help, that's something I should've realized haha. Sending them so far doesn't, so maybe it isn't indeed. Thus far I had just spawned in friendly settlers using SKE and just using console commands to access their inventories.
A settler beacon is definitely the smarter idea! Edit: Doesn't say it can't link to other settlements, but it has settlers atleast. Last edited by Militus Immortalis ; 27 Jul, am.

View mobile website.An interesting mechanic in Fallout 4 is the ability to assist the Minutemen in reclaiming the Wasteland via the creation of settlements for other wastelanders to live in.
With enough elbow grease, players can carve out a mini-empire in the Commonwealth that will provide a steady supply of caps, supplies, items to buy, and even military assistance in battle. Among all of the settlements that are obtainable in the game, there are some that rise to the top in terms of what they can offer the player.
Updated By Benjamin Baker On February 3 rd : When constructing your empire in the wastes of the Commonwealth you are going to need to build up a ton of settlements.
So for those looking to truly conquer the Boston area here are some additional settlements to keep in mind. The Warwick Homestead is an abandoned waste treatment plant converted into a settlement. The main building is rather large and with some clever use of staircases and walkways it can make for an interesting and highly defensible location. There is also a decent amount of farmland and the Warwick family will have a few Gourd plants already in place. As awful as it sounds to make a home out of a waste treatment plant, the Warwick Homestead is actually a decent place to house your allies and produce food.
The Kingsport Lighthouse has a medium sized building area, but already comes with a lighthouse, home, dock, and a small area for farmland. It also has natural defenses in the way of the ocean and rock ledges, this forces attackers to come either by the dock or the driveway, easy points to defend without having to be there. Build the defenses, assign scavengers, build farms, and connect it to your trade routes. The Finch Farm is rather unimpressive when you acquire it.
This former drive-in movie theater is now an empty parking lot with several rusting cars and barrels of radioactive waste. Those cars and the radioactive barrels can be scrapped for valuable resources to give you a large flat surface upon which you can build the base of your dreams. It also makes a great location for your Power Armor collection to be displayed proudly in a personal gallery.
Egret Tours Marina may seem like a terrible place for a base given the run down buildings and random encounter spawn point the latter meaning this place will be under attack often. Focus on defenses, pumping clean water, set up some workshops and a trading post or two for supplies, and you have a strong outpost. It's the home of the infamous Mechanist, who sought to pacify the Commonwealth with her robots.
This lair of hers acts as the perfect camp for those with a little role-playing flair. This underground base has a secret entrance that can house those playing as a mad genius or villainous type. Admittedly, it will have to be supported by another settlement as it cannot grow its own food, but the robotic factory has a great atmosphere for darker characters.
The former home of the Sole Survivor prior to the nuclear holocaust can once again be their home as they embark on a quest to find their kidnapped son. Logistically, it has lots of space for the population and decent farmland, but it ranks low because defending it might be a problem with so many access points. This former lumber mill is one of the larger settlements in the game and makes for a great base. This settlement is a great place to hole up and survive a siege.
Settler (Fallout 4)
One of the best perks with this settlement is the steady supply of caps from trading that the town already engages in. This quirky settlement easily makes the top five for just how useful and customizable it can be. The Graygarden comes with a team of Mister Handy robots busily harvesting and maintaining a greenhouse. In addition to the pre-built garden is the fact that the robots themselves require no water or food to sustain themselves.In Fallout 4the Sole Survivor can build and manage their own settlements at various sites around the Commonwealth.
The new workshop interface is used to place and connect pre-fabricated structures as well as individual pieces walls, floors, roofs, etc. Once built, these settlements can be customized extensively. Inside buildings and structures, furniture, decorations, and lights can be placed for aesthetic purposes; outside these structures, the player character can plant crops, create water and power supplies, and tend to the defensive needs of their new settlement. To accumulate resources for their settlements, the player character can scrap most interactive inventory items.
It is also possible to establish supply lines between settlements to share resources and inventory among them. Settlements require constant maintenance with NPCs tending to more basic functions such as crop harvesting. However, without this, crops will fail and equipment will need repair over time. The player character will have to use the workshop and have the required junk to complete the repairs. Most of these sites can be obtained during the Minutemen quests; however, others will require visiting them and completing location-specific quests.
All possible settlements in the base game with the exception of Home Plate which lacks most settlement options, excluding add-ons. Throughout the game, there are unique NPCs that aren't available as followers, yet can be persuaded to join an owned settlement, provided the requirements are met.
During the Nuka-World add-on, the Sole Survivor has the ability to lead the three raider groups included in the expansion The OperatorsThe Disciplesand The Pack and capture settlements through violence.
These captured settlements are called raider outposts and will be populated by members of the raider group that helped capture it. While they will no longer be referred to as settlements by characters in the game, these outposts are settlements for the purposes of achievements and trophies. The differences between a Minutemen settlement and a raider outpost are few but significant; for example, you can lead raiders to capture other settlements, extract tribute from Minutemen settlements, and make other settlements your vassal states.
In addition, captured and intimidated settlements will pay the Sole Survivor in caps back at their home base in Nuka-World. After Power Play however, whatever raider group was betrayed, and any outpost they control will no longer pay tribute to you following the quest. This will start Cleaning Housewhere the Sole Survivor must destroy the enemy outposts. However, one can no longer fast travel to those outposts.Settlers are wastelanders living in various settlements across the Commonwealth in Settlers are the common people of the Commonwealth.
They can include wanderers, former residents of Diamond City or Goodneighborscavengersformer raiders or Gunnersand even Gen 3 synths who are covertly working for the Institute or rescued by the Railroadtrying to integrate into a normal life. Even wastelanders trying to scrape out a living will sometimes give up their solitary life as a wanderer and move into a soon-to-be-thriving settlement, usually under the protection of the Commonwealth Minutemen.
After taking up residence, new settlers can serve a variety of roles in the community to earn their keep; some help to actively defend the settlement, grow crops, serve as shopkeepers, scavenge, etc. In the event that a settlement is attacked, all its inhabitants will gather to protect it. A few settlers willing to put their lives on the line for their loved ones may leave their simple life as a farmer to join the Minutemen to fight for the common good. Speaking to a settler from one of the Sole Survivor 's settlements will allow them to access their inventory and select their equipment much like they would a companion.
They can be armed with better weaponry than their default pipe pistols, but don't consume ammunition provided they have at least one unit of the correct ammunition for their weapon.
The same holds true with grenades. Settlers assigned as shopkeepers have additional dialogue options when spoken to, similar to other merchants. Select "trade" from the dialogue tree to access their inventory. Speaking to a shopkeeper settler outside of their operating hours will go straight to their personal inventory as normal. Doctors seem to be an exception: A settler assigned to a clinic will not have a trade dialogue option when spoken to during business hours.
Settlers assigned to a guard post will man that post as well as up to two other unmanned guard posts. They will walk in a patrol circuit between such posts, making it pragmatic to place groups of three in relatively close proximity. They rarely leave these posts, to the extent that they do not sleep when the player character is visiting like any settlement resident, they still require a bed.
Unassigned settlers default to gathering any unassigned crops should there be a deficit of food. Assuming the player character is present, during daylight hours these settlers, as well as those assigned to a scavenging stationwill patrol the settlement when not working, and if chairs are present will periodically stop to sit and eat. At night, settlers will gravitate towards the most well-lit parts of town, particularly around a food stall, if built, regardless if occupied or not.
Thus, the strategic placement of chairs and lights can allow these settlers to assist in monitoring a settlement's perimeter for intruders or, conversely, herd them towards a settlement's center. Sometimes, as the Sole Survivor wanders the wasteland, they may come across a small band of settlers, often in groups of three or four, fighting against a band of enemies, from raiders to super mutants.
Should the Sole Survivor save these settlers, it would give them the option of going towards one of the allied settlements. Settlers appear only in Fallout 4 and the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare board game. They can be reassigned to resources temporarily but they will revert back to their unassigned state after a short time.
