For the last three years or so I’ve been rebuilding settlements in Fallout 4!
…Yes, really. Honest to god, it is a major stress reliever for me. I fricking love transforming piles of rundown shacks into cool-looking settlements and replacing dead trees with living ones. Suppose if you can’t do it in the real world you’ve gotta do it digitally right?
So here’s what Sanctuary looks like at the beginning of the game (taken from the Fallout wiki:)
And here’s what mine looks like now!
WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT, amirite?
I suppose my Fallout lands have their own lore. I’m thinking, the Sole Survivor returned home to Sanctuary Hills with Shaun and she overhauled the place, made it better, made it greener. And outside of Sanctuary, little patches of trees and plants slowly started springing up here and there as the world repaired itself a little, and those are Settlements now, places where people can go and live their lives and build ridiculous buildings.
And oh man, I used a lot of mods! You can find a whole list of them at the end of this post.
