    I've made so much money off Vault 81 that I would never kill them. [Calvin and Alexis] @DiO Flipping is an addition to the unarmed chain of perks, just like decapitating is with melee. Or at least I never noticed I could do them until I ranked up on those perks.

    @Shabb - Just went to Diamond City where Doctor Sun had shipments of glass, and then settlement Bunker Hill where Dr. Kay and Doc Weathers had same. I'll keep an eye out.

    I saw Idiot show up in VATS at night on my first file like early after release. Whitechapel Charlie has shipments of glass sometimes when I go there to sell, you might check the bar. Also the breweries, groceries, bars, and even medical facilities are loaded with lootable glass items everywhere.

    Northwest of Far Harbor, the massive hotel is easy to see. Follow the coastline, and a winding road up. Also if you have the Visitor's Center Settlement, you can see if from behind your house. Pearl should not disappear. If you never saw her, she's in Far Harbor, if you told her to wait, she's right outside where the first fog attack was. Well, I guess if the dialog option is there to say you won't help, maybe she just goes back home. The good thing about her is that she runs a barter shop, always handy for bits and pieces.

    I've explored everything on the Island like 20 times over, and collected like 230 Legendary Weapons, mostly all related to the Island. The best ones are for fighting the Shipwrecker and Fog Crawlers like Hunters Explosive Shotgun, Hunters Quad Missile Launchers, etc. The Ghoul Explosive Shotgun is great for taking out the Charred at the legs, rendering them immobile. Yeah that airplane icon is Massacre's boy Erickson. If you collected the Vim Refresh Power Armor, and ultimately met Grun, Erickson is the one speaking on the terminals about locking Grun inside. The Vim Factory has shit tons of bones for making oil.

    Well, no idea how you could miss that (118) because Pearl, a handy like Codsworth is hanging around when you first get to Far Harbor. She asks you to follow her up to the massive structure up the hill, past the trappers. Hint, take a Ghoul Shotgun.....for before entering the Vault. The actual mission will allow campy dialog like in the Shadow crap. Dramatic voice. For me, it was all about looting and meeting Santiago, the artist who has decorated all of my settlements. This is where I found the first Pirate Hat with the other relics. The second is well hidden on the Azalea.

    Super Mutants never see me in Far Harbor, so maybe it's your skill / perk settings. I get spotted by the giant animals and dogs mostly, but my sneak is maxed. A grenade pocketed for every Trapper. If it helps, there are a lot of Legendary cloaking apparel in Far Harbor I noticed. Might try killing more legendaries. I just found the 2nd official Pirate Hat in Far Harbor, and it is well hidden. Not the Sea Captain, Coast Guard, or reward hats, it's actually named Pirate Hat.

    I always get them, but all my settlements are over-fortified with weaponry so I get these messages that I successfully defended whichever settlement. It's a pretty full time job defending the 4 settlements in Far Harbor. The invasions seem much more intense so I keep my people heavily armed and walled in. The Visitor's Center seems to get hit the most and hardest....even with concrete walling. Dalton, Echo, and Longfellow get mainly lame trappers. i don't know what the Reptilian attraction is to Tato crops....meh. Maybe it's all the psycho Santiago Avida art on the walls.

    Well, cow shit makes Jet. According to the Fallout history. It's skewed on dates, and the inventors, but in the end, it's made from shit. This is why I jumped on the chance to build Brahmin Cages from the Wasteland Workshop DLC, over buying them from that lady. I've been making and selling dope throughout Fallout 4. All my Commonwealth settlements make fertilizer, besides money. The settlements have been pulling in an average of 500 caps and there was always enough fertilizer to make dope. What I needed was bones to make oil. So I always grab any bones as well as any aluminum, etc. while scavving. After Contraptions, I just re-channeled all my stash of fertilizer into my Ammo Manufacturing for awhile rather than drugs. i set up an ammo shop in all of the 4 settlements on Far Harbor, just like penning the Brahmins. Now I have all the ammo I need. Never really needed any since all the ammo types are abundant everywhere on the Island. I mean, the Island has so much resource I've built 4 empire farms without going back home. Basically I use 10mm for the explosive, 5.56 for the night vision, .308 and .50 cal for the snipers, and shotgun for the explosive mutant, explosive bugs, explosive ghouls, and the WarwhoreoftheWastes Shotguns, all around 225 DAM. Still on the female file, she's had too much fun and success to let the dude have his run on the Island yet.

    I downloaded the mods update from Bethesda last week (around 400Mb) but haven't checked much out yet. One thing to note for console users, enabling mods will disable achievements. I'm still working on a few Fallout 4 remaining ones, so yeah......

    This is incorrect / misrepresented / explained incorrectly. The PROVISIONERS and SETTLERS make use of one round of ammo, NOT your followers. You basically give them one round, they have infinite ammo. I give 12 rounds to monitor frequently. Even after getting hammered at Dalton Farm, the amount they have never changes. I own all the settlements in the Commonwealth and all 4 in Far Harbor, there has been no change about this trick. Example, even in Far Harbor, Nick blows through ammo like it's candy, while my provisoners and settlers never use theirs up. All my provisioners use maxed out miniguns, with 5mm ammo. Plus I give them one grenade. They cause shitstorms everywhere they get attacked, just like in the Commonwealth. For all my followers I give them a Legendary weapon and around 200 rounds. When they use it up, they go to the Melee weapon I gave them.

    I was missing the decoder at the 5:00 position. Now I can find the missing Marine Armor locations. After swimming: I had all of that already except the default helmet. Looks like the Assault Marine Helmet is the standard version different than the one Brooks carries in Far Harbor. (Legendary star version, Recon, +1 Agility and Perception)

    I should make a diagram/schematic. I missed a relay, other than that I was there. Short of one relay, damn. Thanks, Warlord.

    That is Shabbtastic, Shabbtacular. Epic, bro. Never seen anything like that. Fine architecture. Meanwhile, I'm stuck on the last VR sim of DiMA's memories. The in game action reminds me of the old Half Life Portal.... "nOw yOu'Re wOrK-iNg wITh PoR-TAL" Has anyone completed the last one yet? OY-8K7D. I think I fucked it up and will have to do it over. It's a bitch!

    Just got around to meeting him, what a nice surprise. Totally cool guy. Had read the notes about him and Grun in the factory. Never connected the two together. Good to find him.

    Scored the Inquisitor's Cowl, right? I'm changing all my marine armor to inquisitor to match that thing. Coolest armor.

    1. Yep. Cleared, garden started, the new style water pump with large generator, and thanks to the rewards of Cranberry Island, (massive build component stash) a nice two story house complete with Vim machine and the 2 suits of Vim Power Armor. Settlers all in Heavy Trapper Armor, with modified miniguns from the island super mutants. Haven't been back home yet, just busy using the island's resources. It's been a long time since I spent a lot of time scrapping components in mass quantity. This area could really tie in with Wasteland Workshop. Creature fight arenas. The new recipes and craft items are awesome, but I have to note which components they drain, like oil, aluminum, etc. Dalton Farm was the first real home base, now I'm working on the National Park Visitor's Center. 2. Haven't met Massacre's Skyrim dude yet. Seen a lot of places where he could be living though..... 3. Reason to bring Nick Valentine besides storyline and great dialog, finally found. There is an A.I. controlled room, by a computer named KAI, who will only allow synth prototypes inside. Nick thinks that DiMA set it up. In any event, you won't be getting inside unless you have Nick with you. Here's what's inside, no big deal, but cool:

    This is my bitch on first play through. The one who raped the Institute..... Not the dude. The dude is BOS, and murders your ghouls. Plus he loved raping the Railroad. That's (I think) how he spawned 2 Behemoths on a shitty console. In any event she is surgically dissecting the island and loving it. Awesome DLC. EDIT: I just got it sorry. The Vault Tec dude. Just realized he's a ghoul, I just use him like any other worker. So I guess in that case, Nate is in fact a ghoul sympathizer.

    True. The simple gear that is allowed, and yet some awesome gear is not. My BOS file I saved the Vault Tec Rep, who wears a Weaved Tuxedo and Formal Hat. Also the alcoholic guy from Diamond city is in a Weaved Suit. Both hang out at Sanctuary with everyone else. Comedy value only I guess.

    Just for Arcadia - same here. Then stashed up at his place. Explore. Helping the (named quest) folk opens up even more Nick dialogs. It seems kind of like a Skyrim DLC, just talk to anyone and instant side quest. No spoilers but there are a lot of great side quests you want to find yourself. It's an awesome creepy place isn't it? Almost Point Lookout-ish. It's like there's options to speak as any faction, (option) and Nick is tied to many of them. Very well written. DiMA: @DuP: No such luck yet, regular Far Harbor apparel. I tried to use the Weave on the various fisherman type gear, and the Pirate Hat. (Not the Coastguard or Sea Captains hat they are in the base game early with END=2 ) CORRECTION: I just modified the "Fisherman's Overalls" with Ballistic Weave. The Children of Atom attire as well as the regular Commonwealth clothes found in Far Harbor still weave-able.
