It felt good to immortalize the Red Rocket in Nuka World - but the Commonwealth is a different story.
The Operators own that NW site, and I actually built it like my settlements and prefer it over the Fizztop Grille HQ.
Decked it out with all the stuff they like, plus the farm and protection, it looks and feels pretty raider cool.
Also riding the rides is pretty fun, and i still like making all the different Nuka Colas variations.
My Sanctuary palace has always been a museum, right now build 3 has all the awesome weapons in display, ,
as well as the costumed mannequins from Nuka World and the DLC's as well.
I just added the Nuka Cola Orange Mixer to the party area by the Pommel Horse in both the Vault and Sanctuary
so everyone in the settlement can enjoy. I'm so retarded.
If you've spent any long amount of time building up the free world, losing any settlement feels dirty.
I just got an alert that Outpost Zimonja was under attack, and was witness to the Pack killing one of my own.
So i did a little test to bend the rules, but not enable the Doctor's quest.
I basically stripped out every build, bed, and bit of food from these guys on my land. Took down their flag and beacon.
Traded with them and took everything they have. Now when they get attacked, good luck defending. They have nothing.
BUT - I did not 're-take' because that would mean killing all raider factions and making Gage hostile.
For now I keep the distance - my BOS guy will not be so kind.
There was no loss or failure. As I told Massacre, after a year of building up, I've already lost over 7 settlements for
giving up just 3.....that's a load of dogshit. This DLC has no story backed by the Commonwealth. Doesn't make sense.
Nordhagen all hate me and I can no longer use build menu. That's fucked, I built it beautiful and was at 95% happiness.
Murkwater is dead in the water, no use at all, by anyone as it was owned by Disciple dudes.
Now just an activity marker on the work chest, which will not allow you to do anything, and the 3 lonely
Provisioners walking around in their Heavy Combat gear......
I should have chosen the airport or the mechanist's lair as they are uninhabited.
Anyway, good luck with your raider game. We can always start a new game!
EDIT: Same test results with Croup Manor and the Operators - BOS invaded, I did nothing to help..
Stripped the place of everything except the build chest - no messages of failure or otherwise.
So maybe we will hear about this from Shank? I don't know...I just play it as I go.
Here are some shots of Sanctuary Palace 3 interior floors 1 & 2 of 3, just a homey home of weaponry and apparel.
Not a Shabbtastic build, but these are the most serious weapons in the game mounted for quick grabbing and use!
Screen 2 - December's Child maxed out and idolized above the desk by the bed, on the 2nd floor. I love this gun.
