Invest a couple more hours in Fallout 4 survival mode to clean up hostiles around the Sanctuary Hills area with a new character to sharpen your hunting skills and generate a performance score.


>>> Update 006 restructure: do not update if you have already started and not completed the quest <<<


This quest will help you develop your sneak and snipe survival skills whilst cleaning up hostile raiders (and their dogs) around the Sanctuary Hills area. Just follow the map markers which sometimes mark actual enemies, and sometimes just the location for some surprise.  It ends with a tactical engagement that should be a proper challenge for your low level survival skills. 


Allow 12 to 24 in-game hours (2 to 4 hours IRL) to complete.


This is being efficient at killing, so is carefully provisioned for sneak and ranged snipe to not die a lot. You don't need to influence, buy, sell, build or craft anything to complete so ditch the junk. Except adhesive - never drop adhesive. Using power armor, VATS or console will spoil the experience, so be patient and just learn to shoot straight rookie. Choose perks wisely: Gun Nut, Rifleman and Sneak were regulars during testing.





Quest conditions: 
You will need to provide a new character, or an early savegame. The quest will start between V111 exit and Sanctuary, or on save game load if you are already active. For the highest score start with a new disposable character fresh out of V111, ignoring Codsworth's oily bleating and the default Out of Time quest.

 
  1. If the game is not in survival mode, scoring is disabled. It's supposed to be tough.
  2. If the character is over level 5, scoring is disabled. Too easy.
  3. If you enter power armor, scoring is disabled. Too easy.
  4. If you console stats or perks, scoring is disabled. Pointless.


This is supposed to be hard: If you enjoy the early game challenge of cracking tough objectives at the lowest level with minimum equipment and zero cheats this is for you. If your style is more massive dpm and airstrikes, not so much.


Scoring:
 is factored from level (lower better), time taken (faster better) and quest kills (target number) with a benchmark score of 300. For the highest score start with a new level 1 character and follow this quest, and only kill stuff you have to.

 
Compatibility: The mod has no dependencies on extenders or DLCs and does not change any base game assets or objects. It’s 100% pure new Creation Kit forms and scripts.

 
Installation: Copy SKKSurvival.esp and SKKSurvival – Main.BA2 and SKKSurvivial – Textures.BA2 to your ...\Fallout 4\Data directory, enable in the Bethesda mod menu, mod manger or whatever.


Removal: is the reverse with no dependencies or persistence, just disable and delete the 3 files. Note the two placed SKK crates will disappear so don’t leave anything useful in them if you want to continue the savegame after uninstall. The SKK levelled items are persistent and yours to keep in perpetuity.
