Supply linesEdit

Main article: Supply line

It is now possible to assign settlers to create supply lines between settlements. These will link resources and inventories between the two settlements.


When a worker is assigned, stores of various types will slowly generate income for your player character, deposited in the settlement's workspace (your player character has to periodically and manually collect it from the workspace). The income is based on your settlement population size.

The store can be used by the player, and more expensive stores will generally have better selection.

Note that some stores and in particular the largest stores have additional perk requirements before you can build them (such as Cap Collector).
