About this mod

As the Institute expands on the surface it needs new locations and resources

Permissions and credits
These are the new Institute settlements based on them destroying the Brotherhood of Steel and the Railroad.  The game feels unfinished at the end ...... just a few synth checkpoints, your speech occasionally playing on the radio but not much else.  We know that the Institute scavenged the surface for resources to build the underground facility.  And now that they control the Commonwealth, they obviously can expand freely wherever they wish and occupy the Commonwealth more fully .....  hopefully you will enjoy my vision!

There are now six different settlement files in this one mod .... more to be added.  

The first six sites ...........

Institute Series Settlements

Institute Series - Surface Operations Base (Spectacle Island) ...... main base of operations
Institute Series - Satellite Tracking Station (Coastal Cottage) ..... Institute leveraging existing satellites that survived the war
Institute Series - Powering the Commonwealth (Starlight Drive-in) ..... creating power to bring life back to the Commonwealth using cold fusion not hot fission!
Institute Series - Scavenging Depot (Jamaica Plains) ..... gathering resources to build and expand the Institutes presence
Institute Series - Commonwealth Food Depot (Abernathy Farms) .....  the Institute has leveraged the Commonwealth citizens for food resources
Institute Series - FEV Lab (Sunshine Tidings Coop) ..... institute lab on FEV reversal vaccines
