Fallout 4: My Settlements

I’m still playing at the ‘Regular’ skill level and have reached level 54, and only recently entered the Institute. I’m in no hurry to get to the end and just hope the game won’t push me too fast because I’m enjoying finding new ways to build settlements and add features. I currently have eleven settlements if you include Greygarden, and most recently adding Bunker Hill. All of my settlements have over 10 settlers of which half are on defense, and my biggest settlements (three now) all have 20 settlers with the same ratio of defenders.

Building settlements is very challenging because each one is on very different terrain and building features. Sanctuary Hill and The Castle are the most straight forward settlements, and places like Tenpines Bluff and Hangman’s Alley (work in progress) are both very challenging. My rule for big settlements: they must have an above ground water source. I don’t know if that rule makes sense, but it seems to be how events have unfolded. All of my settlements, except Greygarden, have a bar, a dog and a brahmin. The bars and stores payoff every day and I’m basically rich now: walking around money around 40-50,000 caps plus dozens of gold bars, pre-war currency, dozens of sets of combat armor, powerful weapons, and of course, my luxury apartment in a city unnamed. 🙂 Oh yeah… and Jack, I’m cool… you dig?

This is the center of my Starlight Drive-In settlement.
Basically, sleeping quarters below, stores and bar above.

This is the center of my County Crossing settlement.
I had some good ideas but I need to do a redesign on this one.

It’s nighttime at Oberland Station and a few of the farmers are at the bar.

Yeah, I bought the Picket Fences add-on to get some decent looking furnishings. 🙂

And those are my favorite power armor suits. Love the crome X-01 in the back. I call them ‘The Boys’. *giggles*I play this game too many hours of the day, but it beats listening to CNBC all day for the latest market swings.
