3) Excess Baggage: Talk to Nate in the B.O.G. Bunker after completing the quest "Prepared for the Future". This quest is a rescue operation that will take you to various locations in the Commonwealth, and yields an optional companion, Shannon. Play-through video here.

4) Quantitative Easing: Talk to Sam Cruel in the Raider Emporium after completing the quests "Pimpin' Ain't Easy" and "Connecting the Commonwealth".  This a bounty quest to track down "Vertibird Ben", leader of a group of economists called The Children of Mises, who stole the bottle cap press from Shamrock Taphouse and are running a counterfeiting operation out of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank building.  Play-through video here.

5) Paradise Lost: Talk to Mike McBride at the B.O.G. Bunker after completing the quest "Quantitative Easing". He'll ask you to track down his brother Gabriel, which will lead you on a mission to find a missing G.E.C.K., encountering three large battles along the way as you journey through Deathclaw Valley, South Boston Docks, and East Boston.

6) Pimp Quests (Sawyer): Head to Club Snuggle, home of the Back Bay Players, across the river from Greenetech Genetics, and talk to Sawyer behind the counter. He'll give you a series of quests, in the following order:

- Tools of the trade: Track down some audio, lighting, camera, and printing equipment to help the pimps get into the adult magazine business. This will involve negotiating with Piper and Travis the radio DJ, and exploring a couple locations downtown.

- Pimp Drugs: Obtain supplies so the club can continue making its custom chems, PimpJet and Berry HoTats.

- Selling Skin: Head to the photo studio in Club Snuggle and grab the Pimp Camera and Pimp Magazine Holotape you'll need for the optional photo shoot quests.

- Secret Ingredients: Obtain ingredients for the club to continue serving a couple of its more popular drinks.

- Pimpin' for Parts: Help the pimps gather the electrical components, chemistry supplies and plumbing parts they need to keep Club Snuggle running smoothly.

- Sending a message: Repeatable bounty quest to take out Raider gangs who have crossed the pimps.

- Photoshoot: There are 11 of these, all optional, all repeatable. Initiate a photo shoot quest using the Pimp Magazine Holotape you obtained in "Selling Skin". Convince a model to pose, and you get paid two ways: once when providing the pics to Club Snuggle, and a second time as a royalty.  Payments are deposited to the wall receptacle in the Photo Studio of Club Snuggle. You can collect payment whenever you want.

If you have any trouble, all of the Pimp quests can be cancelled by talking to Sawyer, or in the case of the photo shoot quests, by accessing the Pimp Magazine Holotape.

7) Pimp Quests (Dirty Fred): Fred usually hangs out in the back office of Club Snuggle, or he'll tour the dance floor. He will give you two quests. The first is "Raw Deal", to negotiate a weapons deal with a buyer.  The second is "Pimp Errands", to kill a gang that has crossed Dirty Fred and retrieve some parts.  "Pimp Errands" is repeatable to new locations. If any trouble, the quests can be cancelled by talking to Dirty Fred.

8) B.O.G Side Quests: Access the terminal on the top floor of the B.O.G. Bunker, grab a B.O.G. Mission Holotape, and play it to access the following quests:

- B.O.G. Bounty: Track down and kill a bounty target.
- B.O.G. Tech Retrieval: Help the B.O.G. recover valuable tech.
- Hunt down the Gunners: This becomes available after completing "In Plain Sight".
- Troll the Brotherhood of Steel: Steal tech that the B.O.S. has located and staked out (B.O.S must have arrived in Commonwealth to trigger).
- Harass the Institute: Hunt Coursers.

All the B.O.G. side quests are repeatable to new locations. If you have any trouble, you can use the B.O.G. Mission Holotape to cancel the quest and get a new one. You don't need to return to the B.O.G. bunker each time to complete the quest. You can collect payment whenever convenient. This should avoid waiting through extra load screens.

9) Preston Garvey Must Pay: This quest will auto-start at the end of "In Plain Sight". You can forgive Preston, send him to jail, kill him, or let him off with a hefty fine. If you kill him, obviously you won't be able to proceed with the Minutemen Ending of the vanilla main quest..

Troubleshooting a Quest (WARNING: Potential SPOILER Alerts Below)

This section is for use only if you get stuck on a quest.

The "xx" below in the quest ID's should be replaced by order of Outcasts and Remnants in your load order.  To find the full quest ID, use console command: help <editor id of quest you want to find> 0

To advance a quest stage, console command: setstage <questid> <stage #>

Advancing a quest with a console command is a last resort if nothing else works, and can have adverse unintended consequences.

Troubleshooting if you can't get the main quest to start:

The quest "Initiation" should start automatically after you complete the main Fallout 4 quest "Reunions", where you confront Kellogg at Fort Hagen. If you've already completed Reunions at the time of installing the mod, the quest "Initiation" will start as soon as you load the game.

If it doesn't auto-start, just head to the B.O.G. Bunker south of Oberland Station and talk to Chuck Finley behind the counter.

Some of the quest stages involving "search" or "investigate" do not have quest markers.  If you want hints though, check the log section of your Pipboy.
