Optional Expansions and Additional Content

The following quest mods are optional, but they're by the same co-authors as Outcasts and Remnants, and when combined with OAR will give you over 20 fully-voiced companions, 60+ hours of integrated quest content, and a completely alternate path through the vanilla main quest if you choose.

Project Valkyrie (August 2018 Mod of the Month)
Depravity (August 2019 Mod of the Month)
Fusion City Rising (September 2016 Mod of the Month)
50 Ways to Die at Dr. Nick's (August 2017 Mod of the Month Runner-up)




There's a detailed play-through guide on how these mods interact with each other and the vanilla main quest.

Required Files & Installation


Just an updated version of the game.  No DLC or other mods required.  Please use a mod manager to install.  

Outcasts & Remnants uses assets, with permission, from other mods.  When installing you might receive a message about whether you want to overwrite existing files.  Shouldn't matter how you answer, but easiest path is "no to all" or "yes to all". If you've previously customized certain outfits used in the mod, definitely answer "no" on those if you want to keep the customizations.  To find out which mod a particular item came from, please see the credits below.

This mod is a companion to Fusion City Rising, Project Valkyrie, and Depravity. The stories from these mods all run parallel. You can play any mod first, or all at the same time, but none of FCR, PV, or Depravity are required to enjoy OAR.

When downloading the file, do not use the "Download Vortex" button on the main mod page. Don't use the "Mod Manager Download" button on the file download page either. It doesn't always work correctly. Instead, navigate to the files page, and choose the "Manual Download" button. Once downloaded, import the file from your desktop into your mod manager, and activate it. The mod will not work unless it is activated.

If your mod manager is having trouble installing, see here.

To make most mods work in general, you also need loose files enabled. If you'd like to take your modding experience to the next level, install Mod Organizer 2 (works for Skyrim SE and Fallout 4).

Mod Features


New quests, locations, factions, and companions. All fully voice acted. The time to complete the main story line and side quests is about 20 hours, but a number of quests are repeatable to new locations if you want more. If you're running FCR, OAR, PV, and Depravity together, it's around 60 hours of combined content if you do everything once.

Quest details, troubleshooting, and play-through videos here.

How to Start

To start the mod's main story, head to the B.O.G. bunker, which is built into a hill, located south of Oberland Station, just east of the railroad tracks, and southwest of the alien crash site.  Head there and talk to Chuck Finley.  Once you discover the B.O.G. Bunker, you can fast travel to and from the interior.

For immersion and game-play difficulty purposes, you should first complete the main Fallout 4 quest "Reunions", where you confront Kellogg at Fort Hagen, after which the first quest in this mod, "Initiation", should start automatically the next time you change locations.

If you just want to play the pimp-related side quests, head to Club Snuggle at any point.  It's located on the Charles River northeast of Diamond City, across the river from CIT and Greenetech Genetics.  There's a blue door with a Nuka Cola machine on the left and an "open" sign on the right.  Talk to Sawyer behind the counter and ask for work. For story continuity, you may prefer waiting to visit until after completing the quest "Pimpin' Ain't Easy" is finished.



New Factions/Locations


- Natick Banks Raiders: A group of non-hostile Raiders located in Natick Banks at the Raider Emporium.  You can do quests for them and use the Emporium as a player base.  It has fully stocked materials chests, vendors, workbenches, linked storage, and beds.

- The B.O.G: A Brotherhood of Steel outcast faction.  The last of the BoS who followed Elder Lyons' philosophy.  They split from the BoS and arrived in the Commonwealth in 2283 after Arthur Maxson became Elder.  This faction drives the mod's main story.  Their HQ has fully stocked materials chests, linked storage, workbenches, doctors, vendors, and beds so it can be used as a centrally located player base.

- Enclave Remnants: They're baaack.... sort of.... at least the ones who survived the events of Fallout 3.... smaller, smarter, and working behind the scenes to consolidate power in the Commonwealth.

- Vault-Tec Survivors: A bunker Vault-Tec built for its Commonwealth employees and various VIP's, but when the bombs fell, the entrance fell into a sinkhole and was submerged under the river.  This is the story of the survivors trapped inside the underwater vault.

- Back Bay Players: A gang of pimps originally from New Vegas.  They operate out of Club Snuggle, a fully operational nightclub located on the Charles River northeast of Diamond City and across the river from CIT and Greenetech Genetics. Ask Sawyer for work to start their quest chain. Fred gives side quests as well.

New Companions

Ash: A custom, fully voiced male companion.  Ash shares thoughts, talks trash, and has custom weapons/outfit and a fully functional affinity system including achievable companion perk.  Ash is located at the B.O.G. Bunker.  Additional details here.




Check out Murdering Chainsaw (requires Automatron DLC) if you want to give Ash a better melee weapon than the modified Ripper he initially has.

Gabriel: Fully voiced ex-military hunter/assassin companion with custom weapons, a cabin/bunker in the hills west of Walden Pond overlooking the Boston skyline, and a canine follower, Brutus, who will follow Gabriel around and help you fight, but will not occupy a companion slot.  Gabriel has a fully functional affinity system including achievable companion perk.  Additional details here.

And a Bunch More: If you have Project Valkyrie installed, the B.O.G will have eight companions total: Ash, Gabriel, Owen, Fiona, Sarah, Veronica, Shannon, Carla, and several quest givers including Chuck, Mike, Jesse, and Nate.

Plot

The main story (4 quests) revolves around some unanswered questions from vanilla Fallout 4:

- When Arthur Maxson was appointed Elder of the Brotherhood of Steel and the BoS then largely abandoned the philosophy of Elder Owyn Lyons from Fallout 3, was everyone cool with that?  What happened to the BoS members who weren't?

- How did the Gunners obtain access to vertibirds, power armor, plasma weapons, and other advanced gear?

- Did the DC Enclave in Fallout 3 have a contingency plan? To where would the survivors of the battles with the DC Brotherhood of Steel retreat and how would they go about rebuilding?

- Teleportation could radically improve the standard of living in the Commonwealth, but rather than harnessing the teleportation technology developed by the Institute, the other major factions in Fallout 4 just want to blow the place up, destroying all the advanced technology.  Where's the logic in that? What if another group also figured out how to make teleportation work, because their survival depended on it, and decided to use the technology for good?

Don't forget to read the terminals if the story is important to you.

There are also side quests involving bounties, gang rivalries, weapons procurement, drugs, time travel, search & rescue, the adult magazine business, and more.  Quest details here.

Known Issues
Quest Details
Companion Details

1) In game settings, if the music volume is set to off, you will miss a fair amount of dialogue that occurs over intercoms and player thoughts.  Best to keep music on.

2) The battles in this mod are tough.  Saving frequently is wise (use hard saves, not quick saves). Companions help.  If parts of the mod seem too tough, temporarily changing the difficulty settings in the game menu is always an option. 

3) The quests in this mod do not hold your hand as much as the vanilla game.  Some thinking will be required (e.g. escaping from the prison cell).  If you get stuck, you can look at the log entry on your Pip-Boy for hints or watch one of the play-through videos here.

There is a troubleshooting log and Random Q&A if you encounter an issue not covered above or in Known Issues.

Compatibility

Works with everything unless explicitly stated otherwise, and you can play regardless of what point your existing save game is at or which factions you've sided with. See Known Issues for details if you're having any trouble. If you're playing this at the same time as Fusion City Rising, Project Valkyrie, and Depravity, the combo of the four mods is about 60 hours of content with over sixty quests. The stories run parallel chronologically and you can generally do things in whatever order you want. Play-through guide here.
