Challenge build - Road to 1.000.000 caps! NO MODS/NO CHEATS/NO GLITCHES!
Thank you very much for your support!
This series was planned partially based on the information in these posts:
Barren Wuffet is not your typical hero. He is not that strong, he is not that amazing with rifles or explosives. Regardless, he still accomplished his duty as US military. When the nukes fell, he had a shelter in vault 111. However, after being in cryogenic stasis for more than 200 years, his wife was killed and his son Shaun kidnaped.
Once free from the vault, he tried to find Shaun and try to avenge his wife. Surprisingly, he was able to survive the commonwealth and find his wife's killer, Kellogg. However, he was unable to defeat him. When barely escaping Fort Hagen, he was surprised by the Brotherhood of Steele’s Prydwen arriving the commonwealth. However defeated Barren Wuffet had an idea.
He remembered his strengths, he remembered that the one thing is was good at, was making money and persuade people. So on that moment he made a decision. To find his son, he would need find another way. He knew that money moves mountains, and influences the ones in the highest places. So in order to find his son, he decided to become the wealthiest man, in the commonwealth.
The main goal of this playthrough is to get to 1 million caps. The rules for this challenge are that I’m going to attempt this legitimately, without mods or cheating. The only glitch that I’m allowed to use is the companion unlimited carrying weight glitch, just because it doesn’t affect the legitimacy of the playthrough but it saves me a lot of time. Also, I’m going to do it in survival mode.
Starting point of episode:
The starting point for this build is, as I mentioned before, after kellogg and the appearance of the prydwen. Barren Wuffett is level 26, has 14667 caps. His current weapons include the Overseer's Guardian and a legendary 10mm Pistol. He currently runs 3 settlements: Sanctuary Hills (SH), Red Rocket truck stop (RRTS), Oberland Station (OS).
In this episode we are focusing on SH. As probably many of you know, a big part of the making money in Fallout 4 is generating TONS of PW. Since SH has a river it allows us to build IWP making it our first water farm. Each IWP can generate 40 water and consumes 5 energy.
The goal for this episode is to build enough IWP to reach 1000 water supply in SH. This will allow us to generate huge amounts of PW that we can use to buy materials and eventually sell in the future for caps. Since Barren Wuffet has a high charisma and also the cap collector perk at this stage of the game we are able to sell each PW by around 15+ caps each.
Through the initial part of the game I was able to start with 200 water in SH. This means that 800 more need to be produced. What makes the challenge of today hard is the amount of resources that are necessary to build our water farm.
Additionally, every single settler in SH is going to be assigned to produce melons. The reason for this is that melons can be sold for 5 caps each to Lucy Abernathy in Abernathy Farm.
- Get shipments and junk from vendors in diamond city and goodneighbor using purified water;
- Get weapons from enemies and scrap for materials (scrapper perk);
- Travel from sanctuary hills to diamond city by vertibird to buy stuff, walk to goodneighbor buy stuff, back to sanctuary hills;
- This will make ingame time pass so every second time I get back to sanctuary hills I have more PW
- Everytime I go back to SH I collect the melons
- I store every PW and Melon in a separate storage space so the settlement continues to produce goods
- I use the last vertibird grenade to travel to the prydwen where I can buy more.
