Sadly you did what everyone does. Just shows off their house and doesn't show us how to build one. No it isn't easy to just put up walls and floors as you said it was. It's a pain in the ass. They dont line up on the floor of the house, they hang off, walls hang off too. This isn't really a tutorial at all. Your house is nice no doubt but you didn't show us a thing tbh. I keep searching for someone who actually does a step by step but most of these are guys who really know what they are doing showing off their nice houses.

Not knocking on the video poster, but some of this is out of date now (posted nov 2015). If you are looking for build help, look for newer vids that include DLC information and techniques.

You can't access things from other settlements, I was trying to build at the castle but all my stuff was at sanctuary and I couldn't access any of it

How do u access a stored item?

Also, I might be wrong, but I think a supply line is necessary before workbenches share content

I'm sorry but if you place an item in one work bench and go to another, your items are not there for you to use! I had to transfer all my crap from Sanctuary to Diamond City!

I keep hearing that stuff that is in one workbench is in all of them, wherever - but it isn't true. I was building a tower at Abernathy Farm earlier today and kept running out of wood and steel. When I went back to my main workbench at sanctuary I had about 1300 wood and 170 steel. They weren't available at Abernathy Farm, I had to put them in my inventory and go there, even though I apparently have trade lines between the two places. What am I doing wrong there then?

sadly not the vid i want ! your walls fit !as does your floors etc ! but some of us perhaps have bugs ??? walls are all different heights ,turning corners ??nope only snaps straight ! metal and wood simply doesnt mix due to different sizes ????? perhaps the game is broken ???

One thing most people leave out is how to level your ground to build anything. For example I built a house prefab and the floor has leaves growing up through the floor and try putting a bed there and you can't see the bed through the brush. And then there's the floating houses where you plant a house and half the house is up in the air with zero support structure. It's looks stupid. Also building a raised house you can't place floors in the space you want due to uneven ground and if you do manage to place a floor down where part of the floor is buried in the mound you can't put anything on top of it without the dirt showing up in the house. Show us how to get around those obstacles.

Did this guy even PLAY the game before doing this video?! He's severely misleading on several of these points and WRONG on others! You can't just deposit all the junk and it's available everywhere! There's a few perks required to do some of this stuff, but he doesn't even mention them.

Greetings... I know a lot of people get off building cartoon towns for their little meat puppets. It's loads of fun! IF it were a multi-player game.... Unfortunately, other than making a video and showing it off here, it's all rather pointless. Building anything in Fallout 4 is for all intents and purposes- Useless. All that could be solved of course, IF you just build Anything anywhere, any time - You know like building an elaborate Deathclaw trap out in the midle of the woods - where they ACTUALLY live? But no... You can't. No reason, other than Bethesda says so. Other than a few required builds for a very few select missions, thankfully you don't really need to build much, or waste your time NOT actually playing the game. You really aren't any safer , and all it does is cost you resources like money which are usually better spent on things of practicality like GUNZ! Honestly, I'd much rather buy out Carla every time she shows up, than drop one penny on shipments of well, just about anything.... Don't get me wrong, I tried it. It was fun, it provided a bit of experience to get to that next perk, but ultimately, I'd rather be shooting the heads off raiders, or chopping up a Deathclaw one on one with a knife, than oogling over some fantasized apartment when Bethesda thinks that spending 8 hours of sleep, means standing by a cartoon bed while your screen turns into a countdown box for 2 minutes... Honestly, I think the whole building add-on was included just to take up space, and distract the player base. Instead of actually adding more content, making the world more detailed and challenging, it's all there just to make you think you are getting SOMETHING for your money. Kind of like Creation Club really. It's all flash and bang, no real substance... And it certainly ISN'T Fallout. It's Sim-City... Bethesda has a way of ruining games they manage to buy, like Fallout. They like turning them into OTHER games which are selling. That's why Fallout is now FallRym - a nice gooie mash up of SkyRym and Fallout. Congrats Bethesda, you have managed to ruin another game, Hope your Ferrari is still running well!

I think he made a mistake when he said your items can be used in different settlements when stored in one workbench, i put all my stuff at sanctuary and can't access any of it at the slog or any other settlement. Only at sanctuary. Although I think there's a perk to make supply lines which may allow workbench sharing? idk.

I did not intend to use this woodworking book, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it) but instead curious about it. I had been really impressed right after trying it. It never dissatisfied me in my wish to acquire more information about the art of wood working. A lot of topics were covered, including everything from wood types to designing your workshop.

Has numerous information in this woodworking book “pepe amazing plan” (Google it). The book also displays several designs and descriptions on the materials used for various woodworking procedures and also the directions on finishing different procedures properly. In short, I`m happy making use of this book, particularly in the process of learning about wood working.

This may be the best basic building tutorial on YouTube for Fallout 4. I know it's "kind of simple" as all my friends like to point out but having a dedicated walk through on the basics makes me feel like I can build some great settlements now.

Richard Viade if you're on xbox, hold the share button (left of the start button), if on ps4, hold the big dash button on the top of the remote, and if on pc, it's whichever hotkey you have assigned for it
