Supply lines

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.


Main article: Trading post

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

The store can be used by the player character, and more expensive stores will generally have a better selection. Note that some stores and in particular the largest stores have additional perk requirements before they can be built (such as Cap Collector).
