Starting up
Go to Jalbert Brothers and investigate what killed the Children of Atom there. A Sim Settlements Holotape and some ASAM-sensors are in one of the capsules, if you’d rather not pick them up at the Museum of Freedom.

Main Quest
The main quest starts at Jalbert Brothers and continues as you liberate settlements across the Commonwealth. You will unlock new special units and buildable items. As of version 1.0.4, the following can be unlocked

I don’t want to play as a Child of Atom, can I use this just to have them live in settlements?
Yes, if you use the War Options in the Conqueror set up wizard you can choose this faction to pre-populate and build settlements. Since the faction pack includes a small, optional quest to start it up, it won’t be an option by default. So you have to manually move it over from the left pane to the right pane. The Atom themed skins included for most of the regular Sim Settlements building plans give the Rise of the Commonwealth city plans a truly Atomic flavor. As they are friendly liberators you can visit and peruse their shops (unless you belong to one of the factions listed as their enemies in the article tab).


Tactical Advice:

Recruiting soldiers

To recruit soldiers, you need to have a place for them to sleep. It can be a city plan, vanilla beds or residential plots. If you play with Soldier Needs on, you also need to meet the requirements for Rations, Wages and Equipment. Start by building up your Main Outpost, you can set the recruits to the worker role and assign them to agricultural and commercial plots which will keep up the inflow and let you recruit more soldiers. This video (at 22 minutes in) shows kinggath setting up his Main Outpost.

Taking Outposts as a Liberator
As a liberator you can make any settlement an outpost, but it’s still easiest if you start up outposts in empty settlements. If it’s a settlement you already own, send the settlers to another settlement before you claim it for your faction. Having citizens/settlers in your outpost will make it hard to keep morale high and the soldier needs met.

Weak recruits
Your recruits are weak initially. Prioritize building an armory to get them better gear and weapons. The other aimed Conqueror plots (Field Hospital, Mess Hall, Training Yard, Cemetery) also help your recruits survive.

Soldiers are bad workers
Until you have some friendly vassals supporting your army with produce, you can help keep the troops satisfied by donating food in the safe at the City Planner’s Desk.
