If you are finding it difficult to keep track of things I find it easier to write things down as I know what I am getting from all my different settlements. I created this on a whim when I had some spare time as I have the memory of a goldfish and found it so difficult keeping up with all of my settlements, let alone trying to save them when they’ve been under attack. Could you imagine actually being the lone wanderer, trying to manage these settlements..THINK OF THE ADMIN…papers, papers everywhere!
This is an old version from my first playthrough, its on an excel spreadsheet and from it I used to work out things like, where the majority of my caps were coming from, what settlements could create vegetable starch for adhesive and things like that. As well as what companions are where, although having to update that is a bit of a pain. Admittedly Mods have sorted a lot of those issues, but for fellow PS4 players this may at least come in handy, it certainly was for me. Take a look and thank me later 🙂
