Welcome to Yagisan’s Fallout 4 Settlement Guide. Within these pages you will find all you need to know about building, growing, and maintaining your settlements in the Commonwealth. This guide is a work in progress, so be sure to check back often for updates.
For those of you that are impatient, the Quickstart contains the bare essentials to get you up and running with just the essentials. I have detailed guides on all settlement locations, and systems to help you develop a thriving Commonwealth of settlements.
What are settlements ?
Settlements are a new feature in Fallout 4. These can be founded by the player, or may already exist in game. They give the player (their companions, and settlers) a place to call home, to rest, resupply, and craft before heading on their journey. With enough care and attention, a player settlement can rival any of the existing towns in the Commonwealth.
What does this guide cover ?
Yagisan’s Fallout 4 Settlement Guide covers Farming, Supplies, Building, Defence, Logistics and suggested strategies for each location. For PC users I also include a selection of suggested mods to enhance your settlement experience. Jump straight to what you are looking for from the main menu.
Why should I build settlements ?
Settlements provide essential points of safety in the harsh Fallout 4 wasteland. In addition to providing crafting opportunities, settlements also offer an easy way to make bottlecaps, and eventually, tactical support in combat. Finally, building settlements can be enjoyable in, and of itself.
