Required Files & Installation

1) Fusion City Rising v1.0: Outcasts & Remnants uses assets from Fusion City Rising (FCR).  Your game will crash on load without FCR installed.  You do not need to actually play FCR, you just need it installed.  More details here.

2) An updated version of the game.  No DLC required.  Please use a mod manager to install. 

To avoid audio problems, do not install using the green buttons on the main mod page (e.g. Download NMM button).  Navigate to the files page, and choose either "Download with Manager" or "Download Manually". 

"Download Manually", and then dragging the file into your mod manager, is the most trouble-free way of doing it.  Same thing applies for installing Fusion City Rising. If you are experiencing other install problems (missing voice, textures, etc), running Nexus Mod Manager in admin mode may help.

Mod Features


Hours of new content: New quests, locations, factions, and companions.  All fully voice acted.

The time to complete the main story line and side quests will typically range between 7 and 12 hours depending on how much exploration you choose and how many terminals you read.

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

How to Start

To start the mod, you must first complete the main Fallout 4 quest "Reunions", where you confront Kellogg at Fort Hagen. 

After completing the quest "Reunions", the first quest in this mod, "Initiation", will start automatically the next time you change locations.  There will be a quest marker pointed at the Brotherhood of Gold bunker, which is built into a hill, located south of Oberland Station, just east of the railroad tracks.  Head there and talk to Chuck Finley.


Thanks everyone for Hot Files + all the kind words in the comments.

It's a pleasure making mods for y'all.

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, storage, beds, and of course a Raider strip club.

- Brotherhood of Gold: 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, 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.

Also some side quest and random encounter factions including: Rogue Synths, Disgruntled Scavengers, Back Bay Players, Giant Deathclaws, The Children of Mises, and more.

New Companions

Ash: A custom, fully voiced male companion with several hundred lines of dialogue.  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 Brotherhood of Gold Bunker.  Additional details here.


We recommend Murdering Chainsaw (requires Automatron DLC) if you want to give Ash a more badass melee weapon than the modified Ripper he initially has.

Gabriel: Fully voiced ex-military hunter/assassin companion with several hundred lines of dialogue, custom weapons, 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.


More companions will be coming in future updates as the mod expands with additional quests.

Plot

The main story (4 quests) revolves around the following 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 get access to vertibirds, power armor, laser and plasma weapons?  How could they afford these items just from doing mercenary work? The Commonwealth is dirt poor and the major settlements already have their own security forces, so who is paying/supplying the Gunners?

- 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 using the teleportation technology developed by the Institute to benefit mankind, the other major factions in Fallout 4 just want to blow the place up and destroy 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 then decided to use the technology to provide safe and reliable transportation, connect the Commonwealth, and start bringing everyone out of poverty?

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

There are also several side quests involving bounties, gang rivalries, weapons procurement, time travel, and more.  Quest details here.

Installation and Notes


Random Q&A
Troubleshooting Log
Known Issues

1) This mod uses assets, with permission, from numerous 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 "yes to all" or "no to all".  To find out which mod a particular item came from, please see the credits below.

2) 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.  Note: if you are doing a YouTube play-through, all the custom music in the mod in royalty/copyright free + YouTube safe, and there are no radios anywhere in the mod.

3) 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. 

4) 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.

Future Mod Expansion

More content will be added over time to the extent there is demand for it.  If you are interested in writing, voice acting, or quest design, please send a private message. 

More time than we would care to admit goes into making large quest mods like this.  While we do not have a donation button, if you would like to support the mod, endorsements are appreciated, as are file images if you have good ones.

The mod will not be coming to PS4 or XBox, please don't ask.  The Nexus community is a joy to interact with, the Bethesda community is not, at present, so the mod will remain PC only, Nexus only.

Credits

Thank you to all the generous mod authors who gave permission to include their work in this project, voice actors who lent their voices to the project, and play testers who helped squash bugs and improve the flow.  Sincerest apologies if we've left anyone out, please let us know.  Many of the credits below are for assets not used directly in this mod, but that were used in Fusion City Rising (a required file for this mod).  All mod authors who granted permission for FCR to use their assets were notified via Nexus PM of OAR's use of such assets via OAR's dependency on FCR.

Nexus Moderator Team: If there is a problem with any credits below (e.g. missing text or sub-credits), before hiding the file, please send a PM and we will correct it promptly.  We've been diligent in the credits, as I'm sure you can tell from the list below, and would appreciate an hour to correct any text that needs updating.  Please also be assured that if a mod author contacts us about ANY issue with credits (which hasn't happened yet), we will adjust it promptly.
