About this mod

What happens when a War veteran such as yourself takes charge of the Minutemen?

Well, 1st of all you start building up your army and them you get a base of operations!

Permissions and credits
So you build your Army! Helped farms, gathered allies and one day Preston tells you about the castle.

Heavily Fortified base of operation the minutemen used to have before it was taken by some giant sea creature!

             HEAVILY FORTIFIED? WOW Okay, Preston go ahead i will gather the Alpha  Squadron and meat you there!

And a few hrs later here i go with Dogmeat and the Alpha Squadron on my way to the map marker Preston left me. 

Was a great day to find out about that Heavily Fortified Military base... 

Giant sea creature? No problem we brought all the Fatman's and mini-nukes...

Then we finally come into view distance of that amazing Fortified Military Base.....

            "Preston wheres the base at?  Are those walls it?"

Oh well, let's start the cleanup operation and see its condition afterwards.....

A long damn fight.... seems to have taken ages..... lost a few good men... But finaly the Queen was down!

We did it.... We have the castle Preston tells me all happy after i test to see if the radio still works.

             I m like "well it could be worse i guess" ....
             "who i m kidding... this is it? for god sake.... well time to rebuild"

And so the Operation rebuilt The Castle started.

Hired a few  Engineers and the work started:

Overall special Notes
(depending on how you have your settlement and if you decide to nuke it please beware some items might require you manually adding them back. Example the table at the armory!
Other than that, i didn't found any other issue!)

Sim settlement plans
They will be at either level 1 or 0! I had an issue with the 1st attempt sadly had to restructure then! Feel free to choose at your liking!

Missing/Ignored mods (I havent mentioned some mods that somehow got into the Blueprint just ignore and skip them as they arent needed)

Thank you all

And that was it now Time for another adventure and a big thanks to all these amazing people who helped me build the Minutemen HeadQuarters!
Special thanks to: CDante and his amazing masterpiece that allowed me to share my build Transfer Settlements https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/22442
